MakeUp Revolution Acid Brights Palette Review & Swatches

The Acid Brights palette costs £4 from Makeup Revolution. It’s available online at their website or the Superdrug website.

It features a range of 12 shadows, 4 of which are shimmer the others are all matte. The shadows all come in long strips, which does allow you to take long strokes to get the colour on your brush. The packaging is plastic with a clear lid. It comes with a sponge applicator, not something I will ever use but for £4 I wasn’t expecting a brush.

The colours themselves don’t come named but that’s not really something I worry about. The formulation isn’t the best (but again it’s a £4 palette). The best pay off comes from the shimmers. The worst is the white, there’s barely any colour pay off from that one. You’d need a good base to brighten it (such as the NYX pencil in MILK). The texture is slightly chalky on all of them but this actually doesn’t affect the application result.
There are five colours in this set I already own. The Scandalous eye shadow set is featured in this palette. So if you don’t own them already you might want to try them out in this palette first.

They’re all bright and great for summer or festivals. So many fun looks you could create with this. It’s also a great alternative to Urban Decay’s Electric Palette. It’s not exactly the same but it’s a good alternative for a much better price.

I’d recommend this at the price point, especially if you’re not very brave with bright colours. It’s a good starting point.
