I featured the Revolution Pro Neutral Ground Eyeshadows here on my blog back in May, but I was really impressed with the quality as they were very close to being as good as Makeup Geek eyeshadows. Following the success of the Neutral Ground pack, I bought the ‘Base’ and ‘Millennial’ packs hoping they’d be as impressive as the Revolution Pro Neutral Ground Eyeshadows. The pack I have today to show you is the Revolution Pro Base Eyeshadow Refill Pack containing five neutral toned eyeshadows for £5 per pack, working out at just £1 per eyeshadow.
“In an edit of soft mattes, shimmers and pressed glitters, Revolution PRO Refill Eyeshadow Packs contain five shades to build your custom palette. Richly pigmented and buttery, every shade glides onto the eyelid and blends out effortlessly. Base includes matte cream, matte nude pink, matte light brown, matte warm brown and gold champagne shimmer.”
The Revolution Pro Base Eyeshadow Refill Pack comes with a plastic insert and a clear lid, and are designed to be put into a magnetic palette such as a Z Palette. The pans are magnetic so you don’t need to buy magnets to stick to the base of the eyeshadows so they’re ready to go, and can be placed into a palette. If you don’t have a magnetic palette, I wouldn’t recommend buying these eyeshadows as the plastic lid is very flimsy, and the pans fall out very easily.
The name of this eyeshadow set would suggest that these shades are quite natural, and nude which they are and to be used as base shades within your makeup look. The pigmentation within the Neutral Ground pack was really decent but these shadows are a little more powdery, and lacking in pigmentation.
They all (bar Requisite) create A LOT of dusty fall out which didn’t happen within Neutral Ground. Sufficient, Exceptional and Kosher were exceptionally powdery and messy to apply, and in all honesty they’re not great eyeshadows. I don’t know why Revolution have such an issue with creating individual eyeshadows. The Freedom Foil Shadows were some of the worst I’ve ever tried.
Revolution know how to make very good quality neutral eyeshadows so I expected a lot more from their supposed ‘professional’ range, but these are poor quality compared to the likes of their Chocolate Palettes and I wouldn’t recommend the Revolution Pro Base Eyeshadow Refill Pack as your £5 would be better spent on one of their Re-Loaded Palettes which are £4 for 15 shades and are considerably better quality.
Have you tried any of the Makeup Revolution Pro Refill Eyeshadow Packs?
