This time I’ll discuss the Re-Loaded Palette (Authority) by Makeup Revolution, which was part of the 2018 Advent Calendar. I opened the calendar every single morning, even if I almost forgot about that before leaving for work at 6.15 am! :) The Re-Loaded Palette has a nice combination of matt and shiny eyeshadows. The shades are mainly neutral, from matt earthy to glittery orange and pink undertones. What is also important is that the palette has a black eyeshadow, which is great for adding extra dimension to the outer corner of the eyelid. I usually apply one of the brown shades all over my eyes. Then I add a shiny eyeshadow from the center outwards, and blend a tiny bit of black or dark brown in the outer corner.
As for the quality of these eyeshadows, they’re all quite powdery. This is very true for the lighter shades with glitter, which don’t stick to the skin well (particularly if I apply a matt shade beforehand). I probably should’ve sprayed the brush a little bit, but truth be told, I’m not keen to experimenting with my eye makeup 10 minutes before I leave the house :) However, I feel that they would apply well using fingertips – I think this is a very underrated technique!
All in all, I can say that this palette is really nice and you can make a number of different looks. Because they aren’t highly pigmented, these shades are very appropriate for beginners as a mistake here and there will not cause that many troubles!
