The £10 everyday palette | Revolution's 'Fortune Favours The Brave' eyeshadow review

Buy at TAM Beauty | Superdrug, £9.99

Hey, everyone! Today I'm going to be talking about an eye-shadow palette I've been playing with for over six months now, the 'Fortune Favours The Brave' palette from Revolution. I was looking for an inexpensive eye palette that had a variety of shades, and well, it definitely does that! I'm super picky about eye shadow colours but I also don't want to switch palettes while I'm doing my makeup if I can get it all in the same palette, that's perfect for me. I really liked the look of the palette online, so for £10, I wasn't going to complain too much.


First Impressions 

This was one of the first items I bought by Revolution so I was really excited to get this open and try it out. The gold container is plastic, it feels quite nice and solid for a cheaper branded product. It doesn't feel luxury by any means but definitely a good quality for only £10. I also noticed that the colours in the palette looked exactly the same as to how they look online which was a bonus too - there's a mix of matte and non-matte colours, and what seems like endless opportunities with the colours provided. 

Using the palette 

The pigment varies throughout the different shades in this palette, and you definitely have to build up the colour but it blends so easily and well that it doesn't really feel like too much of a problem. I was also really surprised by the quality of the brush provided in the palette - it's not very often I would even try using the brush that's given as they're usually really difficult to work with but this one is pretty good, although I do still turn to my Real Techniques brushes. 

Fall out is an issue with this palette, but in my experience, only with the black eye-shadow which is incredibly frustrating. I've had no bad experience with the other shades in the palette, but I just turn to my Kat Von D palette for the blacks - so unless you have an alternative yourself, that isn't too great from a buyers standpoint. The pan sizes are also pretty small, from the photos I saw online I did think they would be a little bigger but I feel like you get an appropriate amount for the price, and just how many different colours / shades you do get. 


I've found this is a product you just have to use an eye-shadow primer with - without I seem to get build up of oils in the crease of my eye lids, which is something I haven't experienced with any other eye-shadow. The pigment definitely fades faster than other eye-shadows but once again, made much better by using a good primer base that works for your skin. It's not a palette I pick on a daily basis, because I'm not one for topping up my make-up throughout the day but I definitely do use this palette for a night-out or an occasion where I'm only going to be out for a few hours. 

Final Thoughts 

I've definitely enjoyed using this palette and I feel as though it's a great quality product for the money. If you're a beginner, it has a great variety of colours to play around with and practise, and much better than anything similar for this price point I've used. The pigment and blend-ability is pretty great, I'm just not overly impressed by the durability in comparison to more expensive products, but for a beginner or someone with a lower budget, it's a really great product in comparison with other similar things in drugstores!
