The Makeup Obsession x Illuminarty Shadow Palette has launched today as a collaboration with Tiffany Hunt (@illumin_arty), a very talented makeup artist and winner of the NYX Face Awards 2019.
It’s been a hot minute since Revolution launched a collaboration, and it’s been refreshing to see them do something different instead of influencer collaborations every other week.
We’ve seen enough collaboration warm toned palettes with a shade called cookie dough to last us a lifetime. The Makeup Obsession x Illuminarty Shadow Palette however, is different to any other palette Revolution have done before.

In addition to this palette, there’s also a set of eyeliner pencils too, with a neon kaleidoscope theme. The palette is £20, and the eyeliner set of pencils is £12. If you’d like to find out more about this new collaboration, keep on reading.
“We’ve partnered with the insanely talented Tiffany Hunt aka @illumin_arty, stand out contestant of the BBC’s ‘Glow Up: Britain’s Next Make-Up Star’ (series 1) to bring you a kaleidoscope of colour!
The palette with endless possibilities! The Makeup Obsession X Tiffany Kaleidoscopic Dreams Eyeshadow Palette features a rainbow of 34 shades, laid out to look like an artist’s palette.
This bright and bold eyeshadow palette boasts 26 mattes in every colour you could need, 4 foil-like metallics and 4 duo-chrome shades that will transform any matte into a shimmer when applied on top.“
The Makeup Obsession x Illuminarty Shadow Palette has a metallic, spilt petrol multi-chrome design on the packaging, and is cardboard like all of the Makeup Obsession Palettes.
The inside of the Makeup Obsession x Illuminarty Shadow Palette is designed to resemble a kaleidoscope which is a cute idea, with lots of different colours and finishes.
All of these swatches are done wet, so the shades are no way near as intense as these so don’t expect them to have this kind of payoff on the lids.
I would much prefer to see true, dry swatches as nobody applies powder eyeshadows wet to their eyelids – especially mattes. You might use a dampened brush, but that’s different.
The Makeup Obsession x Illuminarty Shadow Palette contains mostly mattes, and to me, looks like the Morphe x James Charles Palette in a different layout.
Some people avoid Morphe for different reasons, so I feel like this would be a good alternative if you wanted the colour and variation that the Morphe James Palette offers, but you’re not a Morphe fan. I think this is a really unique palette for a drugstore brand, and I think it’s another great alternative to the huge BPerfect Cosmetics palettes too.
