I’ve said it a hundred times but matte eye shadows are SO hit and miss, when they’re good they’re GREAT but when they’re bad they may as well not be there at all. This isn’t restricted to budget brands either, high end matte shadows can be terrible too but what I will never understand is why they include the colours that just DO NOT WORK. You can see from the swatches below there are some great brights here but the paler shades are barely worth having and if you went straight in to do an eye look without swatching you could totally mess it up by using the shades you’d otherwise pass on.
For the money the selection that are good are seriously brilliant value but it just kills me that they could have replaced the not so greats with shimmery formulas they KNOW are good. Someone has to sign off on that sub par product when they could be honest and make a couple of tweaks to make it perfect. So far I’ve used the bold orange and pink shades (top) and have found them to translate just as well to the eyes as the swatches and overall I’ve been really impressed with Revolutions eye shadows but I can’t be alone in this frustration. I think I’ll have to try the not entirely matte Acid Brights to compare.
