Reviewing the Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer and Soph X Eyeshadow Palette

The UK has a great selection of drugstore makeup, and I’ve always been wanting to try some. I’ve heard a lot of good things about Makeup Revolution, and when I heard they released a new concealer that is apparently a dupe for the Tarte Shape Tape, I had to get my hands on it! I also really wanted to try one of their eyeshadow palettes, and despite wanting to try one of their Chocolate palettes, all reviews kept pointing to their collab with Sophdoesnails as their best one.

The Concealer

Their concealer, priced at £4 is a complete steal, and comes in 18 shades, which is quite a large range for a drugstore brand. I chose the shade C7, described to be for medium skin tones with a yellow undertone, but I feel it was not yellow enough for me. I figured it would be great for brightening under the eyes though.

The applicator for the concealer is shorter and thinner, but is almost the same shape as the Shape Tape concealer. The consistency is very similar too as it is on the thicker side. It has great coverage and blends like a dream.

Ignore how horrible I look, but as you can see the concealer brightens really well .

This is what I looked like with all my makeup done. I think the concealer looks really nice, and it lasted the whole day. Is it a dupe for the Shape Tape? From someone who uses Shape Tape almost every single day, I would say that Shape Tape has sliiiiiightly more coverage. But in other respects, it is very similar, and I think that I may get a shade darker and use it to replace my Shape Tape when I run out as it is very difficult to get Shape Tape in the UK.

The Soph X Eyeshadow Palette

I don’t watch Soph’s videos but I read such good reviews on her eyeshadow palette, and I was intrigued by the shade range so naturally, I bought it! I bought it online from Superdrug for £10, which I thought it was such good value for 24 shades. I feel like this palette has amazing colours- warm and cool tones, bright and neutral, shimmer and mattes, which makes it perfect for travel.

Above are some swatches for you! On the eyes the mattes do blend very well, but the shimmers are variable in pigment. I had to use a wet brush to get the pigmentation I wanted, but bare in mind they are drugstore eyeshadows so I didn’t mind working a little harder. I thought I’d demonstrate the wide shade range by creating two looks (one warm, one cool) to show you that it really is a palette for anybody, and is very versatile.

I mainly used Festive Flame, Grow Old and Sparks Fly for this firey look.

I mainly used Mixed Berries and Petrol on the lid, and Pink Champagne for the inner corner. I really love the Petrol shade but reeeeally had to spray it to get the pigment I wanted. It is a really beautiful blackened purple with a slight duochrome.

All in all, I really like this palette. It isn’t my favourite, because it isn’t high-end quality, but it has such a nice shade range with special colours that really lets you be creative if you want to. It’s also really good for travel as it also has nice neutrals and browns for everyday looks too.

  1. I love both the concealer and the Soph X palette I feel like it is just as blendable as my ABH modern renaissance palette. It’s great that Makeup Revolution are showing that you can get similar quality at a fraction of the price.
