Revolution launches two new eyeshadow palettes today; the Revolution Earth Eyeshadow Palette and the Revolution Mars Eyeshadow Palette. I’ve already dedicated a whole post to the Mars Palette, so I decided it was only fair I did the same for the Earth Palette.
Revolution Earth Eyeshadow Palette
The two new palettes are the same size and format as the Revolution Reloaded Maxi Palettes which were £12 each, but they’ve sneakily been increased to £15 each now.
Both of these two planet inspired palettes are £20 each which really is crazy, especially as it’s not as if it’s part of their luxe Revolution Pro Collection where you’ll expect fancy packaging and more of an experience’ when using the products.
These two palettes contain 45 powder eyeshadows, each containing 1.35g of product, so the pan sizes are large but these palettes are really big and they feel as cheaply made as their 144 pan Christmas palettes.
You look at packaging like they did for their Jewel collection and Glass collection, which truly was stunning and Instagram-worthy, but these two new palettes just don’t justify an £8 increase on the original price.
The Revolution Earth Eyeshadow Palette and the Mars Palette both have huge clear lids covered in graffiti style pictures which looks like something you’d see in Claire’s. If you’re 12, you might enjoy the illustrations but they’re just not doing it for me.
Imagine how amazing it would be if the brand did a proper celestial collection, with pretty constellations, moons and planets. That would sell amazingly well, and I know it wouldn’t be a collection that ends up on their sale page 6 weeks later.
The Revolution Earth Eyeshadow Palette features a heavy green and blue theme, with seriously random single shades of pink and orange.
These palettes do contain marble shadows, and I think it’s really great Revolution included two photos of the Revolution Earth Eyeshadow Palette (I made the collage) to show you how different each palette can look.
The shades really differ depending on the marbled veining so if you’re in store, it might be worth checking for your favourite if they differ as significantly as they do, in this photo.
I think this will be the more popular palette from the duo, as blues and greens are really having a moment right now, and they’re available right now.
