When Revolution launched their first Reloaded Eyeshadow Palettes, they originally had four different palettes to choose from back in 2017. They’re £4 palettes and they each contain fifteen powder shadows. The first four palettes were; Fever, Iconic Vitality, Neutrals 2 and Iconic Division, however they now have an insane eighteen different Reloaded Palettes so there’s a lot to choose from. So far I’ve featured the Revolution Iconic Fever Reloaded Palette, but today I have the Revolution Reloaded Hypnotic Eyeshadow Palette to show you which is one of the more recent additions.
Packaging wise, it doesn’t get much more basic with clear and black plastic packaging, and no mirrors or applicators, and the shades contain 1.1g of product each, and they aren’t individually named. MUA did the whole fifteen shade set up before Revolution did, with their Pro Eyeshadow Palette range.
I’ve not been massively into the the range of Reloaded Palettes as many of them are just repeats of things they already own; like five different ABH Modern Renaissance dupes, and two Subculture dupes.
I chose the Revolution Reloaded Hypnotic Eyeshadow Palette as the colours are very similar to the Anastasia Beverly Hills Sultry palette, which is a palette I really wanted to buy but because it’s limited edition, I try not to buy limited launches as it’s pointless reviewing products which you can’t purchase yourself.
Although the Sultry Palette was ABH’s Christmas palette and it’s still on sale, so maybe it’s not limited edition anymore? Anyway, the Revolution version definitely drew me in at just £4 especially as I really like the Iconic Fever palette.
Revolution really confuse me as a brand. This palette is £4 but the quality is fantastic, yet their £15 Shook Palette was terrible. They know how to make a fantastic eyeshadow formula, so it makes no sense to me that they keep launching palettes that are below par when they are capable of producing quality as good as this for just £4. Plus the pans aren’t teeny tiny either, which is something they keep on doing with their newer palette launches.
The Revolution Reloaded Hypnotic Eyeshadow Palette contains a really great mix of metallic, high-shine shimmers and mattes, with zero disappointing shades at all. I think this might be one of the best Revolution palettes they’ve ever made and the fact it’s £4 is amazing.
I haven’t tried the ABH Sultry Palette so I can’t comment on whether it is actually a dupe, but the shades are extremely similar so it definitely fills the Sultry void I’d had in my collection and I just with Revolution could sort out their consistency issues as the quality of their palettes vary so much.
Have you tried any of the Reloaded Palettes before?
