Makeup Revolution Welcome to the Pleasuredome Palette

Thursday, 21 August 2014

Makeup Revolution have been a brand I've been seeing around the blogging community lately and I really wanted to give some of the products a try. Luckily I was kindly sent a package from the company containing a variety of products to give a try. Today I'm going to be reviewing the Welcome to the Pleasuredome Palette*.

This palette contains 12 shimmer shades (the rectangle shaped shadows) and 6 matte (the circle shadows) ranging from neutral to bright. I love to wear bright shadows, but if I'm just going for an everyday look I'll stick to the neutrals, so this is a brilliant palette for me to switch up my looks. The thing I like is that the brighter colours aren't too bright or neon, and totally wearable. This palette also only costs £6 which is great when you consider you're receiving 18 shadows.

The quality of the shadows is good, better than I expected. I haven't had any fall out on my face, which I've found with many lower end shadows. I love palettes, and can see myself reaching for this often.

Onto swatches..

These are the 6 top row rectangle shimmer shadows, the lighter colours haven't shown up very well on my camera..sorry! (left- right)

Welcome to Pleasure Dome- Light shimmery gold, perfect for the inner corner!

Xanadu- A shimmery beige.

Moving On- A darker shimmery beige.

Using My Power- A super blendable navy blue.

You Really Can't Afford Me- A shimmery dark green.

Even When They Reach The Top- An aubergine purple which when applied and blended looks more of a grey with purple sheen. I have noticed it's flaked in the pan after I've swatched it.

 These are the 6 bottom row rectangle shimmery shades..

Where Lovers Roam- Shimmery cool medium brown, reminds me of MAC's Satin Taupe.

Jungle Call- A purple toned shimmery brown.

Moving At Million Miles An Hour- A red toned dark brown, slightly coppery looking.

Sell It Buy The Hour- I'd describe this as a sea foam green, in my eyes it's constantly changing from a blue to a green, it's nicely pigmented as well.

Shooting Stars Never Stop- A slightly browner gold.

There Goes A Supernova- A shimmery forest green, slightly lighter than the green on the top row.

These are the 6 matte circular shades on the bottom of the palette..

What A Push Over- A super creamy yellow toned matte which is basically invisible on my arm (it does show on my eye!)

Long Way From Home- A cool toned brown which is super pigmented when applied with a brush (the swatch doesn't make it look half as pigmented as it is!) and I love to use this in my crease.

Diamond By The Shower- A cool taupe grey.

Love Your Body- This is a violet taupe which isn't as pigmented as the other mattes, but still workable with.

I Can Do It- Dark grey, really matte but still easy to blend.

Never Doing What I Am Told- A super pigmented matte black.

Overall I'm really happy with this palette, and have loved having a play around with the colours over the past couple of days. My favourites have to be What A Push Over, Moving On & Moving At Million Miles An Hour. Thank you to Makeup Revolution for sending me these goodies, more reviews will be up over the next few days.




  1. This is one of the palettes that's on my HUGE Makeup Revolution wishlist, it's so big I'm going to have to cut it down. I'm really into shimmery neutrals at the minute. This is on the opposite scale, with lots of dark shades. It's such a pretty palette though. Glad you like it :) xx
