REVIEW // Makeup Revolution London Run Boy Run Palette

This palette was £6.00 people. I've seen and heard a lot of buzz around Makeup Revolution recently and decided to check it out when I was in a better stocked Superdrug. I was instantly drawn to the Run Boy Run palette because of the gorgeous neutral autumnal shades. I love the rose gold lettering on the shiny black plastic although it does get grubby quickly. The actual palette feels much sturdier than it looks and has survived being in my handbag - if that's any indication!

I have to say that my first impression was very good. You get 12 shimmer shades and 6 matte shades in lovely autumnal colours. They are all so wearable, you can either go with a very neutral look (Hide Behind Me has been a frequent choice to wear on it's own) or you can smoke it up with the darker shades. Break Out From Society is my favourite and I know I'll be wearing that throughout the colder months. All the shades work so well together and you can create so many different looks that this has honestly been the only palette I've been reaching for recently. I also love the names of all the shades, I think they're so clever and well thought out. You also get one of those double ended sponge brushes, but honestly that was straight in the bin - does anyone else think they're such a waste of time?

Obviously, as the palette was only £6, these eyeshadows aren't the best I've ever tried. A few of them need a good few layers to make the colour solid and the shimmer shades are far better than the matte shades. But, if you can be bothered to build them up and experiment a bit this palette is a dream to use. Also, they are quite long lasting - I use this palette for work quite often and even on particularly hot days the eyeshadows are still in place and are still fairly opaque.

Have you tried any Makeup Revolution products?
