Revolution launch a lot of eyeshadow palettes, but the Revolution Forever Flawless Timeless Fantasy Eyeshadow Palette instantly caught my eye, and as my post revealing the palette yesterday got so many views, I decided I had to buy it to review and swatch for you.
Cool toned palettes are my absolute favourite, and I loved the Forever Flawless Allure Palette so much, I had high hopes that their latest launch would have a similar formula.
The Revolution Forever Flawless Timeless Fantasy Eyeshadow Palette is their latest Forever Flawless Eyeshadow Palette. All of the Forever Flawless palettes are housed within weighty metal tins, which have a hook closure which helps to keep them securely closed. They each have mirrors inside the lid, and contain eighteen shades.
As far as palettes go, the Revolution Forever Flawless Timeless Fantasy Eyeshadow Palette, like the other Forever Flawless Palettes, is quite heavy. They’re not the most travel friendly palettes, but they have a range of mini eight pan palettes which are.
So hopefully we’ll see a mini version of the Revolution Forever Flawless Timeless Fantasy Eyeshadow Palette, as it’s such a beautiful palette. I know this palette is going to be popular for the brand, as cool toned palettes have quite the resurrection this year, and I’m totally here for it.
I didn’t notice it straight away, but I did notice that the Revolution Forever Flawless Timeless Fantasy Eyeshadow Palette looked remarkably similar to the Natasha Denona Glam Eyeshadow Palette which is £65.
I actually own the Natasha Denona Palette, so I’m going to sort out a comparison post between the Revolution Forever Flawless Timeless Fantasy Eyeshadow Palette and the Natasha Denona Glam Palette, so we can see if it’s actually a dupe or not…
The Revolution Forever Flawless Timeless Fantasy Eyeshadow Palette is £12, and the tin casing has a chic marble granite kind of design.
I love it, and it complements the (mostly) cool toned colour story inside the palette. On the top of the palette, Revolution is written in copper raised writing, and the names are individually named inside the palette.
In the stock images, the Revolution Forever Flawless Timeless Fantasy Eyeshadow Palette looks to be quite warm toned, but as you can see from my swatches below, it’s very much a cool toned palette with maybe three warm toned shades…..
Sophisticated / Classy / Chic / Timeless / Fantasy / Desire
Muse / Modern / Luxe / Elegant / Refined / Exclusive
Contemporary / Superior / Plus / Lust / Fancy / Style
How beautiful are those swatches? It definitely doesn’t swatch like a £12 palette. There was only one shade I didn’t love, and that’s Superior which is a bright shimmery white, which feels a little gritty due to how glittery it is, but as you can see from the swatch, it still swatches amazingly well.
I love the shimmers so much, they’re so smooth and metallic. There’s a couple of shades like Modern, Luxe and Exclusive which look like foils as they have almost a wet look sheen to them.
The seven mattes feel different to the usual Revolution mattes too. They’re soft, and they have a subtle sheen to them, which I feel makes them easier to apply. They actually remind me of the NARS matte eyeshadow formula, and the shades they chose for mattes couldn’t be more perfect to complement the range of shimmers.
The Revolution Forever Flawless Timeless Fantasy Eyeshadow Palette is a stunning cool toned palette, and the shades do look very, very similar to the Natasha Denona Glam Palette, and I’ll be sure to share a comparison post with swatches of the two palettes very soon.
