Review: Makeup Revolution Acid Brights Palette

You better not be bored of these bright eyeshadow palettes yet, because I’ve got another one for you today. Except these babies aren’t just brights, they’re Acid Brights. Let’s get down to business!

Makeup Revolution Redemption Palette – Acid Brights
£4

Available on MUR’s website or Superdrug* (and in-store)

“THE ultimate 
palettes with ultra high payoff.


A perfect mix of pearl, shimmer and matte shades. Totally collectable and a pure sellout” – Makeup Revolution’s website.


This palette consists of 12 eyeshadows, with a mix of different shades. The MUR redemption line of palettes don’t come with a mirror in the lid, which is a bit of a shame, but the clear lid does make it easier to tell which palette you’re picking up so you win some, you lose some.

So, time for some swatches.

L-R:
1. A deep shimmery magenta with purple reflects. Good colour pay off, smooth and easy to work with.
2. A matte white eyeshadow. Chalky and very underpigmented.
3. A matte acid yellow. Chalky, underpigmented.
4. A neon orange matte. Surprisingly pigmented and easy to use.
5. A mid toned cool blue shimmer. Pigmented and buttery.
6. A warm toned aqua blue shimmer. Reasonable pigment, easy to use.
7. A mid toned purple matte shadow. Very underpigmented and a stiff texture.
8. A bright olive matte shadow. Nice pigmentation and blends out well.
9. A neon matte pink. Usual for a neon shadow, pigment needs building.
10. A neon highlighter green. As you would expect, chalky and underpigmented.
11. A silver shimmer shadow. Performs well, has decent pigmentation.
12. A matte black shadow. A little dry in texture but pigmentation builds decently.

The range of colours in this palette is quite fun, and for £4 it’s definitely a budget friendly way to introduce a bit of colour into your makeup kit. I like that there’s a matte black in this palette, as well as a silver. I would commend the matte white too, but I find it to be next to useless. I’m sorry, but I have enough matte whites and all of them perform better than this one.

As with all bright/neon shadows, these will work best over a white primer. Especially the neon shades, they take some building to get any colour pay off on bare skin, but a white base will grab the pigment and make it pop.

So, now that spring is upon us, will you be breaking out of the neutrals and into the brights? Is this palette for you? Come tell me in the comments!

Much love, Kim xo
