The Ultimate Artists Palette - By Revolution Pro

I don't think there will ever be a day where I won't be bored of Revolution's makeup releases - they're a brand that are constantly launching product after product, and the curiosity never fades

Next on my Revolution palette review list, is the 'Ultimate Artist Palette' in collaboration with Lan Nguyen-Grealis who is a multi award winning makeup artist and this palette slides into the Revolution Pro brand which I love. The palette retails for £15 from Revolution Beauty here or Beauty Bay here - or in Superdrug stores in the UK. There are many other places to get Revolution products around and online too but these are the retailers I use most frequently. 

Packaging wise, it comes in a black coated case and opens up like a book - which usually I would find a bit gimmicky but I actually really love and comes with an inner protector between the two sides which is a nice touch. When using the palette, I did find that some of the shadows would go into the lip shades so if I were to take this palette back to the drawing board to improve slightly - I'd add another protector over the lip shades. It's a tiny change, but think it would save a lot of product being wasted over time. 

Upon opening the palette, it took me a while to think of what makeup look I wanted to create with it first as there's just so many options and you could always use the face powders on your eyes too so that adds more makeup combinations. I decided to go for a super smokey eye, slightly out of my comfort zone with a silver smokey eye (which I usually feel washes my eyes out however I ended up loving it) and dark blue under the lower lash line. The palette contains; 3 bronze/contour shades, 1 highlighter powder, 4 blushers, 8 'neutral' shades, 8 super bright and fun shades (called UV although I haven't tested if they're actually UV - shall update) and 8 lip shades which is an amazing value for money for only £15. I think this palette would be perfect for someone quite young, wanted to get creative with makeup on a budget. 

Some things to note down - I was incredibly impressed with the payoff of the silver shade (you can see it live in my YouTube tutorial here), it was super sparkly and intense which I love. The blush shade 'pink' (which is the one I tried) is incredibly pigmented so I would advise to be light handed unless you're going for the doll look. As you can see below, I've swatched a variant of shades from the palette including the face powders, the deep bronze shade on the far right of this photo is absolutely stunning and I can't wait to create a glam date night look with it.

Overall, and once again with my Revolution palette reviews, I would definitely recommend adding this Ultimate Artists palette to your makeup collection at only £15 here - or as a starter palette for a gift, this would be fabulous! (I'm yet to find a Revolution palette I'm not keen on).
