Revlon launched their So Fierce palettes towards the end of 2020, and I ordered the Revlon That’s a Dub So Fierce Eyeshadow Palette as well as two others from the five palette collection as soon as they launched in the UK.
Revlon eyeshadows are incredibly hit and miss, and I can’t remember the last time I found a Revlon palette I enjoyed, so I knew there was a chance I perhaps wouldn’t like the Revlon That’s a Dub So Fierce Eyeshadow Palette either.
“Some rules are meant to be broken. Create your fiercest look yet with next-level prismatic shadows in statement colors. Forget blending in.
These ultra-creamy multidimensional colors have a polished finish and a high level of pearl for crystal-clear neutrals, modern smoky shades, and high-intensity brights.
Even better? Our suspended gel technology formula provides a bouncy texture and rich color without fallout, and the eye shadows won’t crease or smudge either. Can be used wet or dry.“
Inside the Revlon That’s a Dub So Fierce Eyeshadow Palette, there are four rippled shadows, and they have a strange, raised dotted surface. They’re said to offer ultra-creamy prismatic colour with a polished crystal finish and a high level of pearl.
Whilst their suspended gel technology provides a bouncy texture and rich, pigmented colour without fallout. They do feel very smooth in the pan, and when my order arrived, one of the shades fell out of the palette completely which isn’t ideal.
Although because the pan fell out, I could really see the formula up close, and they appear to be creams, but the surface of the shadow is definitely powder which is a little strange.
The formula reminds me of the ColourPop Super Shock Shadows, except the Super Shock Shadows have a much more impressive, more pigmented and multi-dimensional formula in comparison.
The four shades in the Revlon That’s a Dub So Fierce Eyeshadow Palette don’t perform well with an eyeshadow brush at all. I’ve tried both synthetic and natural bristled brushes, and they just don’t pick up the shadow very well.
They’re definitely best used with your fingertip to get the colour on to the eyes, and then you can use a brush to blend and diffuse the edges. Once on the lids, even with primer, the shades fade within a few hours which is such a shame.
Colours wise, the Revlon That’s a Dub So Fierce Eyeshadow Palette is a straight up neutral palette, and the shades are nice enough, but they’re quite average and nothing special.
For £10, I think the shadows could be very easily duped from Essence or Revolution, and I’ll be sure to review the other palettes I have from the So Fierce collection very soon.
