One of Makeup Revolutions newest releases is this beautifully dark and mysterious Give Them Nightmares Eyeshadow Palette * -link which coincides perfectly with Halloween! The 18 shades in the palette are a mixture of shimmer and matte formulas which are great for creating a whole host of looks whether you’re dressing up or just love a smokey eye.

The Halloween theme runs through the entire palette from the creepily named eyeshadows to the colour selection which is predominately purples, navy and green shades. Very vampy! The packaging is in true Makeup Revolutions style with its sleek and shiny black casing. It also has a decent sized mirrored lid which is perfect for touching up on the go.

The shimmer shades dominate the palette (12 in total) which Makeup Revolution excels at. The majority of them have minimal fall out and amazing pigmentation. The black shades Beyond The Night and Friday 13th are some of the blackest I have seen from a high street brand. The stand out shimmer shades for me are Who’s There- a  stunning  plum purple, I’m Watching You- a rich royal  purple, and Wicked- a striking emerald green. Lethal and Pretty Zombie are a little harder to work with than the others.  The matte shades are definitely worth mentioning even though they do vary in pigmentation and are a little on the powdery side. They are essential for crease colours and blending! The most impressive of the 6 are Ash and Darkness.
Overall, Makeup Revolution have created yet another exciting and unique eyeshadow palette. Even though this is a themed Halloween palette, it’s still great for anyone who loves to wear a smokey eye or gravitates towards these sorts of shades. Purples are one of my favourite colours after browns so I will be reaching for them when I fancy something a bit different.  The shade Wicked  looks so pretty as a pop of colour under the lower lash line and really brings brown eyes to life! The pigmentation differs between the shimmer and matte shades but for just £6 for 18 eyeshadows, you can hardly complain. Makeup Revolution have a huge selection of palettes to choose from so even if the colours in this particular one aren’t up your street, I would urge you to try any of their other offerings.
It’s hard to believe that the brand launched only six months ago as they’re constantly bringing out new products. I’m always so excited to see what’s coming next!
