Makeup Revolution Hard Day Salvation Palette review

Makeup Revolution Hard Day Salvation Palette

Hello everyone, as requested on twitter, I am doing a review of Makeup Revolution's Hard Day Salvation palette! I was lucky enough to win this palette and it recently featured in my May favourites 2015. The palette retails at £6 and I think it is an absolute bargain at £6! The quality of the palette is much higher then you would expect for a palette costing £6.

I found the palette difficult to get out of the copper coloured box it came in but the palette itself is very sturdy; I also love the rose gold writing on the black case. For those who have read my blog before, you will know I love a mirror! The Hard Day palette does not disappoint, it has a huge mirror making application very easy. Another thing I love about this palette is the detailing on the matte shades of eye shadow, though I do know this will fade with use.

This palette has 18 eye shadows, 6 matte and 12 shimmer shades, this makes each eye shadow 33 pence roughly. This palette is multi purpose which is why it was in my May favourites, I use the eye shadows for their main purpose, I use a couple of the matte eye shadows for my brows and sometimes I use the mirror as it is the biggest handheld mirror I own!

The eye shadows themselves blend easily and are pigmented. I find them smooth to apply and when wearing them, they last all day without the need to reapply. I will get use of all of the colours in this palette, with the purple and black shades being used the least. The only thing I would have liked with the palette is for the names of each shade to be written underneath like with other palettes I own, I do not like the piece of film that is used to state the colours. The applicator has a sponge at either end. I lost my eye shadow brush and was forced to use the applicator and it is sturdy and easy to clean, but I still prefer my trusty brush.  Below are swatches of all 18 shades.

If you are looking for an eye shadow palette with a variety of nude shades, this could be the palette you are looking for. Costing £6, it is a bargain and great value for money! Have you tried any of Makeup Revolution's eye shadow palettes? Let me know what you think of them or if you would like to try this one!
