Makeup Revolution - Acid Brights Palette

 Makeup Revolution acid brights palette
I have never been a person to shy away from bright colours and that is everything from eyeshadows to bright hair haha. I have been looking for a dupe for the Urban Decay electric palette as I can't seem to manage to spend upwards to £40 for it, so the makeup revolution Acid Brights seems like the perfect option for £4.

The packaging might not be as beautiful as the Urban decays as it looks quite plain and simple and I know it won't be to everyone's taste but I think it looks fine and the main thing is the shades inside. The applicator is something that I may of used when I was a teenager but as I have become a makeup artist I just can't adjust to applicators and much prefer brushes but for the price its something that is to be expected, but for 12 shades in one palette it seems such an amazing bargain to be had.

The acid brights palette has a mixture of shades to neon brights and bright shades, the only problem with this palette for me is that the shades aren't named, I know its not a big thing to worry about but its something I like to look at when I have an eyeshadow palette. Testing this palette was quite pleasent and the shades are perfect and you don't need to much to have a pigmented effect. It isn't a carbon copy of urban decays palette but for £4 and 2 extra shades that all have amazing payoff does it even matter?

The formulation of the eyeshadows are a tiny bit dry and could do with an eyeshadow primer before applying it as it has quite a bit of fall out. It may be a bit dry but it applies very easily and once on it lasts all day ( for me it lasted 8 hours) which is amazing regarding the price of this palette. All in all this a fabulous palette with a beautiful selection of shades and I am very happy to add it to my eyeshadow palette collection and I will be using it again in future.

(Makeup revolution are a cruelty free brand and by the ingredients I think it is vegan too)
