Makeup Revolution Mono Single eyeshadow Review

Makeup Revolution Mono Eyeshadows (from the top): Dirty Cash, Cappuccino, Pure, Limitless

I've wanted to try some Makeup Revolution products for a while now, but I wasn't sure what I wanted, I was in Spain a few weeks ago and when I was browsing in Primor I noticed they had a large Makeup Revolution stand, a lot of their palettes were out of stock but I did swatch a few products and decided to go with the single mono eyeshadows.

They have a soft buttery smooth, blendable texture, with no fallout when applied. They are very pigmented, last about 5 hrs before showing any signs of wear and 8-9 hrs with the Nars pro prime eyeshadow base underneath.

Dirty Cash - Link! This is a khaki green shade with a gold metallic finish and has a subtle brown undertone, this shade is extremely smooth buttery, pigmented and blendable. I like to apply this on the lid with a flat shader Sigma E55 brush or into the crease with the MAC 217 brush.

Cappuccino -Link! This shade is a pale taupe with a subtle pinky hue and has a gold metallic finish. This also has a smooth, blendable texture, however it's not quite as pigmented as Dirty Cash. I have been using this as a highlight shade. I like to apply it in the inner corners of my eyes to brighten up any look.

PureLink! This is a medium warm brown matte shade, it has decent pigmentation and an extremely soft blendable texture, one thing to note is that the matte shades have a more powdery texture in comparison to the metallic shades, but once you tap the excess off your brush before applying it, there is no fall out. I like to apply this shade in the crease, to add some subtle definition to my eyes. I have also used this shadow as a transition shade to blend out the edges of other shades.

Limitless- Link! This is a merged eyeshadow that makeup Revolution have released as part of their Out of This World Collection. It's a marbled baked shadow which can apparently be used wet or dry, I haven't used it wet but supposedly you get a more intense colour payoff! This shade is a pigmented warm golden bronze metallic shade, with micro shimmer throughout. This shade has a very smooth, blendable texture. I like to use this shade all over the lid, with a shade like Pure in the crease.

Ingredients: Mica, Talc, Magnesium Stearate, Paraffinum Liquidum, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Polyutene, Dimethicone, Phenoxyethanol, Proplparaben [+/- CI 77891, CI77491, CI77492,CI77499,CI15850. CI16035, CI42090, CI77742, CI77510, CI77007, CI19140, CI15985, CI45410].

These eyeshadows are incredibly good value with the regular mono shadows costing €1 from Primor and £1 from The Makeup Revolution website with the merged eyeshadows costing €1.50 from Primor and £1.50 from The Makeup Revolution site.
Each of these shadows come in light weight, black plastic casing with clear lids. It's not the sturdiest packaging ever, but again it's pretty decent for €1!

I've been using these shadows for a few weeks now and have been really impressed with their quality. From their excellent pigmentation, buttery smooth texture to their impressive lasting power and incredible price point. I would absolutely recommend for everyone to check them out!

Please note none of the links are affiliate links and I purchased all the products mentioned.
I hope you enjoyed the post and found it useful!

  3. Woah I wasn't expecting these to be so pigmented on the skin, you can't really complain about that quality at such a cheap price! I haven't gotten around to trying Makeup Revolution yet, a bit late to the party, but I must do soon.
