The Makeup Revolution Romantic Smoked Redemption Palette contains twelve shadows: six matte and six shimmer.
The first six shadows are shimmery and the last six are matte, a nice balance of finishes, especially for a drugstore palette. The matte shades are varied enough in shade to create a variety of eye looks. Three of the shadows are lighter and more subtle, great for transition shades, and three are darker for adding depth to the crease, smoking out the lower lashline or to add a soft liner to the lids. The mattes aren’t intensely pigmented, but they are smoother and more blendable than lots of drugstore matte shadows. The shimmers are more intense, but they do not have a foil like quality to the finish. The shimmers correspond to the mattes pretty well, but they are slightly warmer in tone. Once again, three are light and three are dark, providing some nice variety for eye looks. I typically combine this palette with other shadows, but you could easily create looks with this palette alone. If more cool toned colors aren’t your thing, then this specific palette may not be for you, but I find it to be a nice option for anyone that is on a budget!
