So, before I kick off my learning makeup for recovery series… I needed to share this post about the Soph x Revolution stuff.
What is Soph x Revolution?
If you’ve heard of sophdoesnails on youtube and you’ve heard of the revolution makeup brand you’re halfway there. It’s a collab she, in fact, did with revolution.
She has two eyeshadow palettes with them. Her soph one and her extra spice. There is a highlighter palette and 3 lipsticks, cake, fudge and syrup.
They’re really cheap at £10 each for the eyeshadow palettes, £8 for the highlighter and £4 per for the lipsticks.
I’m very late to the game here… however. Here’s my thoughts!
Which I bought
So I bought one each of the eyeshadow palettes and a lipstick in the shade of cake. I wasn’t brave enough to buy the highlighter as I still have no clue what I’m doing when it comes to makeup. I only have a sort of idea when it comes to eyeshadow and even then I’m terrible.
Straight off the bat. The outer packagings for the eyeshadow palettes are beautiful. A huge nod to her first one as it’s just adorable. So adorable that I put the palettes back in them. (I never do this… ever)
The unboxed palettes are both beautiful as well. Each being a colour swap of the other.
The lipstick (cake) is beautifully designed in a rose gold pot/stick? (i have no idea what its called) I’m absolutely in love on this already.
Colours and Swatches
Soph x revolution
So upon opening her first one. You can see the 24 shades beautifully laid out with a nice little name sheet on top. Also, I need to give the girl a huge shoutout for her mirror. I need a mirror when I’m doing makeup and my small one on my sleek palette aint doing it for me.
Now, I tried to swatch this and take decent photos…. note I said tried.
You’ll see her colours are very pigmented. Some far more than others (that may have also been my terrible swatch job and skin tone) I can’t say there are any that I won’t use. I’m also, very excited to try and work with some as I’m learning to do looks. (That green is screaming at me for some reason and I need to figure out a look with it)
Also please ignore the cut, my cat attacked me.
Very much loving this palette and the looks I’ve seen made on youtube so… No complaints here. The hype was very much worth it!
Looking at this, yes it does have fewer eyeshadows. However, the names are on the palette itself. Score! The amazing mirror is back as well so much love for that.
The swatches and photos were easier due to there being less. (Please ignore my tattoo)
Now again, the colours are amazing. I’m loving the purples. The highlight shades as well are beautiful I mean just look at the pigment on these bad boys! No problems with any of the colours. They will probably be all used at one point or another. (That yellow is PERFECT Pikachu yellow)
Again, the hype was correct here. I feel it’s very worth its price tag. I have zero complaints.
It’s extremely cute her name is engraved into the actual lipstick! The colour is a nice little nude.
I swatched my arm because my face was a mess. However, That’s a nice colour. Probably my favourite lipstick I own now.
In all honesty. These were very much hyped on youtube. The hype didn’t let down…
Soph x Revolution keep doing what you do because the collab is amazing! I want more shadows! Please!
at £10 each for these palettes that’s extremely reasonable! I’ll give it that. They have plenty of choice in terms of colours both having shimmer and matte is a good help. Plus revolution’s makeup formulas are normally pretty amazing for the price that you pay.
The lipstick is beautiful. Nice, soft, silky. A wonderful nude colour and easy to pair with most looks. I’m already tempted to get her darkest one, fudge.
I’d happily get more in this range if it were to carry on. Once I know more, I may even get that highlight palette because if the hype for the shadows and lipsticks lived up then the hype for that will too.
I’d say go get them! I had mine on a 3 for 2 with student discount in Superdrug so I barely even paid the amount listed.
I’m ready to work on a few looks with these and they will indeed be added into my daily kit!
I did use the original palette the other day. So here it is. (This photo was taken half a day after I did the look and it’s still standing!)
