In case anyone is interested, I still don’t have my new car 😢 I’ve paid my deposit and just waiting for the guy to come back from holiday to sign everything and collect the keys!
I am back today with another palette review (shock! 😮).
I picked up the Forever Flawless Constellation palette at the same time as the Tropical Carnival palette. The bright colours drew me in and I just couldn’t resist!
This is another of the Revolution £10.00 palettes which is reasonable as you get 18 gorgeous shades!
This is the most lively of the Forever Flawless palettes. The others are more on the muted side which I am never really drawn too – I have my Naked palettes if I’m needing neutrals!
But if more muted palettes are you’re thing, Revolution have you covered!
As will all Revolution products, this palette is cruelty free – because why shouldn’t it be?
The shades are a mixture of mattes and shimmers – seven of the former, 11 of the latter. Some of the shimmers seem a bit more satiny than others rather than true shimmers.
I wish there was a bit more variation with the formulas. For example, there are two shimmery blues which are so similar one could have either been replaced by another colour or one could have been matte. Same with the Grey’s – three grey/silver shimmers is just too much, even for me!
The warm reddish tones are also really similar and although everything is nice and pigmented, I found I got a better purple mixing the bright pink (Venus) and a blue (Neptune) than Cosmic on its own!
The highlights of this palette for me are the bright yellow (Solar) and the icy silver (Fractal). I don’t have anything like these in any of my other palettes so it’s a palette I will pick up again and again even if it’s just for these shades!
Like I said, the colours are pigmented as you would expect but they aren’t quite as bright as those in the Tropical Carnival palette. You can build them up though without too much hassle.
The darker shimmer shades have quite a bit of fallout so that is something to watch if you normally do your base first like me!
I did notice a couple of the matte shades went a bit patchy during application but only on one eye so I am assuming it’s me rather than the colours themselves but maybe something to note if you have any dry patches on your eyelids.
The shadows don’t crease throughout the day at all. One night I even went to bed with my makeup still on (I know 🙄) and my eyelids still looked pretty decent the next morning!
The shadows blend really well together but can be a little muddy at times.
The shimmers are a lovely buttery texture and apply beautifully. I would recommend applying with your finger or a wet brush for the best results though, as using a brush doesn’t seem to work quite as well.
The packaging of the palette is gorgeous! The cosmic pattern makes it one of the prettier Revolution palettes about.
The palette itself is made of metal and it closes solidly. You get a decent sized mirror too and it’s not actually too heavy so would be fine for travelling.
I actually think this is quite a versatile palette as you can use the brights for some bold looks but the more muted colours are totally fine for doing a tamer look for during the day!
I’ve used most of the colours in the palette now and I’ve not found that any of them stain. They’re fairly easy to remove with cleanser or a makeup wipe despite their staying power during the day!
I definitely wish there was a bit more variation for me personally but this is a really nice palette to have in my collection and I’m glad I picked it up.
Revolution have been killing it with their releases recently but I really wish they would slow down a bit. They are launching new products so often, I don’t know how anyone can keep up!
