Revolution are seemingly always launching something new, and the Revolution Sparkle Up Euphoric Foil Eyeshadow Palette launched back in June, alongside the House of Fun Palette. I’ve not had the best experience when it comes to Revolution foil formulas, but from the stock images, the new Euphoric Foil palettes looked a little more promising.
Revolution Sparkle Up Euphoric Foil Eyeshadow Palette
Revolution have had many ‘foil’ products which haven’t been foils at all, such as the Freedom Pro Foil Eyeshadows, Revolution Eye Glisten Foils, Revolution Flawless Foil Eyeshadows and the Revolution Pro Transformation Palette. Not one of those products have been true foils, even thought they’ve been marketed as being foils.
It’s such a bugbear of mine. I hate it when brands claim their product is something when it’s not, as it’s misleading, but I can confirm that the Revolution Sparkle Up Euphoric Foil Eyeshadow Palette is a true foiled eyeshadow palette – finally.
The Revolution Sparkle Up Euphoric Foil Eyeshadow Palette is £10 and contains nine shades. It’s housed within cardboard packaging, and the lid of the palette is covered in multi-coloured glitter. It looks so pretty, but it doesn’t fall off and get all over your hands which I definitely appreciate.
“Calling all eyeshadow lovers! Want some foil fun? You need the Revolution Euphoric Foil Palettes.
9 intense metallic shades with pigment power in shimmering compact packaging and a mirror inside for on the go glam looks.
House of fun is filled with fabulous deep reds and burgundy shades, with pops of copper and gold. Sparkle Up features stunning bronze and copper shades, with pops of silver and gold.“
All nine shades within the Revolution Sparkle Up Euphoric Foil Eyeshadow Palette are super pigmented. They’re all almost opaque, although the ninth shade is considerably more sheer, and needs building up.
Something strange with the Revolution Sparkle Up Euphoric Foil Eyeshadow Palette, is that the shades all look darker in the swatches and on the eyes. It’s not normally something you experience with eyeshadows, as it’s more of a base product issue, but they look like different shades on the eyes.
In the palette, the first shade on the third row looks like a warm gold but it’s a straight up yellow on the eyes and in all honesty, looks hideous. It does not look flattering on my skintone, but I imagine it looking really prettier on richer skintones.
I would love Revolution to introduce a cool toned edition of this exact formula, as the Revolution Sparkle Up Euphoric Foil Eyeshadow Palette is very warm toned and the House of Cards Palette is packed with bold reds and pinks which aren’t really my vibe. For £10 this is a fantastic palette, and the shades give you an amazing high-shine finish with no creasing or flaking.
