The Ultra Eye Contour Light & Shade palette from Makeup Revolution if an obvious dupe of the Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette from Kat Von D. It has a great range of tones including a neutral quad, cool quad and warm quad which I think makes this palette extremely versatile. Although the packaging itself is quite cheap looking, it does come with a dual-ended brush that is functional.
I do enjoy the the fact that there are three ‘base’ shades provided in larger pans as these probably will be my most used shades from the palette. My only complaint regarding shade selection relates to the fact that we basically have four shades of cream in this palette and to be fair… ain’t nobody needing four shades of cream! On the eye, they all look pretty much the same which is a bit of a waste of palette space in my opinion. Saying that, the formula on these shadows is really great. I find they do kick up a bit of product when you dip your brush in, but the softness of the formula does mean they are very easy to blend out. They are also nicely pigmented! So – onto the swatches 🙂
I am happy to report that this is my favourite formula of Makeup Revolution matte shadows to date. I find myself reaching for this palette every time I need some additional matte shades for a look, but this really does perform as a stand alone palette as well. I have taken to keeping this palette in the drawer with my ColourPop Super Shock shadows as this palette really does compliment all of the colours of shimmery lid shades that I own as single shadows. As I said – so versatile.
I think this palette is an absolute bargain. Obviously, I can’t compare this to the Kat Von D palette that it dupes as I do not own that palette, but reviewing this as a product in its own right, I can absolutely recommend it.
If you are interested in checking this palette out for yourself you can find it on the TAM Beauty website for AU$13 and they ship internationally!
Have a wonderful day 🙂
