Revolution Donuts part 2: swatches & closeups!

As you might know, Revolution is one of my favourite brands when it comes to makeup. I’m also very tempted to give their skincare a go, but up until now I have only tried their makeup. A lot of their products are vegan and cruelty free, which is something I care about personally. It makes me not feel guilty about using their products!

A while ago, I think it was in October, I shared a blogpost about a series of donut-inspired eyeshadow palettes that Revolution had launched. I was all over them since the packaging is too cute for me to say no to. They also baked a second batch of palettes and as you can probably guess, I HAD to order them. So, here we are!

I’m sharing pictures, next to swatches that I made. I thought the shades looked beautiful and they were very pigmented! Let’s take a look…

The Revolution Donuts: custard fill – banoffee pie – chocolate custard

How cute are these? I must admit that the Custard fill palette is rather fragile because of the sprinkles. Some of them already fell of and I guess that they won’t stay on for a long time if you would be taking it with you on a holiday, popping it in a suitcase or maybe your handbag. That being said, they look so cute and lovely, not to say very yummy as well!

The custard fill palette has shades I knew I would love immediately. All of these shades are shimmery so I don’t think I would do a look only using this palette, since I like using mattes shades in the outer corners of my eyes. I do feel like they are all very pigmented!

How pretty are these shades? I’m in love with them! One of them is a matte shade (in the middle of the picture) and it’s a beautiful warm brown. I think there’s a nice combination of dark and lighter shades, even though you only have 5. The lightest shade will look beautiful as an inner corner highlight!

This one I wouldn’t usually go for, but I thought it would be nice to pick something that’s not necessarily in my comfort zone. I feel like the black one is a matte shade, the others are shimmers. I really like the pinky-reddish one and I was pleasantly surprised when I saw the grey and greenish, darker grey one in real life. I think you could create some stunning looks with them!

What’s your favourite eyeshadow palette?

Love, Axelle
