Makeup Revolution Eyeshadow Review

I recently went to my aunt’s fiftieth birthday party so I took the  opportunity to make some new purchases (one of which is this purple eyeshadow). Anyway, I haven’t done a review in ages so I thought I’d give you all my thoughts on it.

Makeup Revolution seems to be, effectively, a rebranded version of MUA. Same philosophy, similar products, same cheap price – even the packaging looks the same!

MUA & Makeup Revolution packaging comparison - similar or no?!?

Anyway, this shade is called Purple Heaven so I was expecting it to be a plain purple but it’s actually more of a shimmery-blue-purple-3D-effect colour, if you know what. I mean (which you probably don’t). It doesn’t show up that well swatched as it isn’t a particularly intense colour, as you can see, but it looks nice on the eye. I applied it in a wash and then put a bit more on the outer third of the lid which worked nicely as a highlight thing.

Considering this was £1 from Superdrug, I’d say that it was excellent for the price!
