Hi guys! So I’m back with another eyeshadow palette review (shock! 😮).
I placed a Revolution order when I was feeling ill – almost spent £120 in my feeling sorry for myself state but I whittled my order down to a measly £24!
I knew as soon as I saw it that I had to have it in my collection – the new Tammi X Revolution Tropical Carnival palette!
Just look at those colours! How could I not? This palette is only £10 (you can get it slightly cheaper if you have a quick Google for discount codes) and has 18 bright and bold shades.
There are 7 shimmer shades and 11 mattes.
I love the layout of this palette! The shimmers are the first 7 shades starting from the top left and the mattes are laid out in such a way that you can see immediately which colours will work!
The shades are really blendable and work so well together, especially if you use colours that are close together.
That’s not to say you can’t mix it up a bit; however, some of the colours can look a little muddy when mixed and not as intense.
There is a crap-ton of fallout from the darker mattes – Navy (the dark blue) in particular is probably the worst shadow I’ve ever encountered for fallout!
If you are using the darker colours, I’d suggest doing your base after your eyes as dusting away with a fluffy brush still leaves you with a cast of colour.
The shimmers are pretty intense even on a dry brush but are at their best if you apply them using your finger. I’ve just started doing this for shimmer shadows recently and the difference is amazing!
The black in this palette is actually a grey which I’m pretty disappointed about. I love a good matte black and I feel the grey doesn’t really work with all the intense colours. It’s a shame as Revolution normally do great blacks!
The palette itself is really pretty. I love the design and the splash of colours. The gold foiled logo makes it instantly recognisable.
It is quite big but it’s not too heavy and has a massive mirror so perfect for travelling.
You do get a little sheet of the shade names but I don’t think anyone keeps that but they have also included the names on the back of the palette and the box itself.
It is also vegan and cruelty free which is perfect as nothing should be suffering for our looks!
I think Tammi had done a really good job with this palette and as she explains on her YouTube channel, she wanted to show some of her culture with the shade names, most of which link back to her roots in the Carribbean.
I would recommend this palette to anyone that needs a bit of colour in their collection – let’s face it, that’s everyone!
Don’t get me wrong, the fallout is a definite negative as it is really bad and if you would never wear bright colours, it’s maybe not for you but for only £10, there’s really no reason not to pick it up!
So that’s that! Let me know if you will be picking this palette up and if not, why not!? Tell me what your favourite colours are for eyeshadow and I will do a look just for you!
