I'm pretty sure that it comes to no surprise now when I declare my love for Makeup Revolution. I honestly must sound like a broken record because I'm forever raving about the brand here on my blog, Twitter and Instagram... Obsessed I know. My obsession for the brand has grown a little more since last week as I was lucky enough to get my hands on the new Unicorns Unite Salvation Palette* (insert girly squeal here). A little while back you may remember when MR released the Mermaid vs Unicorns palette which was so popular as I think everyone including myself has a thing for mythical creatures. I'm guessing because that palette was such a success due to the amazingly themed colours included in the palette, Makeup Revolution have now brought us a palette that is dedicated to us Unicorn Fans.
Now you don't need me to tell you just how stunning and vibrant the Unicorns Unite Palette is as I'm pretty sure the pictures speak for themselves. But if you want to find out what I think makes this palette really special and why you need it in your makeup collection then be sure to keep reading.
First of all the packaging of this palette spot on and fits the unicorn theme perfectly. Usually when a palette comes in a box, I quickly dispose of it. But Makeup Revolution have really gone all out with this bright purple holographic packaging - Beautiful! The actual palette itself is the same as all the other MR Salvation palettes; A sleek shiny black casing which feels sturdy and has a great clasp and a large mirror inside which is perfect when applying the shadows. The palette contains 18 different shades of eyeshadows, 12 of them being shimmery and the other 6 having a matte finish.
The Unicorns Unite Palette definitely has a theme running through it, other than the obvious (unicorns). The colours inside are bright, bold and definitely not for the faint hearted! I think theres such an amazing choice of colours ranging from metallic blues, vibrant purples to neon pinks. The colours for me really emphasise that fantasy element to the palette and just looking at it I feel inspired to play around with colour and create some bold and daring makeup looks. What I've found and really love is that all the shades compliment each other really well, which is just what you want in any palette - So the looks that you can create are endless!
As for the actual shadows themselves I've found each shade to be highly pigmented, soft and very bendable. On the packaging it does say that 12 of the shades are shimmery and I've found them to be a good mixture of metallics and glitters. The metallic shadows are definitely the winners in the palette ; Not only are they stunning once applied, but they add so much dimension and depth to your makeup look and are like no other eyeshadow I've ever tried before.
As you can see each shades is unique and you really have so much choice when it comes colour. By no means is this an everyday eyeshadow palette for me, but I love playing around with colour and sometimes its fun wearing something a little more daring. I think this palette would be great if you like bright colours and like me are a fan of unicorns! I can just imagine the bright blues and metallic purples would look great worn during summer time, especially if you're heading off to any festivals. I've had so much fun playing around with this palette and have already some favourite shades amongst the 18. Below is a look I created using some of the purple and blue shades, but I'm thinking of showcasing my creations in a separate post using this palette - Let me know what you think?
