I'd all but given up on scooping this palette as every time I went to my Superdrug there was just a big hole where it was supposed to be. And then last week, I strolled in to buy cotton buds or something boring, and she was in stock! This is the Makeup Revolution Fortune Favours the Brave palette - compiled by British Beauty Blogger and it is LOVELY. I don't think I've ever been so excited to get something immediately onto my face as soon as I walk through the door. Except like, boys. I snapped pics of it as soon as I was home so I could immediately use it, and boy, have I worn it a LOT.
You get 30 shades - a combination of matte, glimmer and sheen (their words) shades. The only thing I'd say is missing is a killer silvery grey, but I'm not holding this against it. Yes you do need to work a little bit to get the colour out, and it doesn't distribute as smoothly as a more expensive palette but this is TEN POUNDS PEOPLE. TEN ENGLISH POUNDS. And the brush isn't a pile of wank either. I can't ever remember seeing a palette, where every shade looked so scrumptious. Makeup should ultimately be about having fun, and boy have I had a blast with this one. I have shown this palette a good time. If you want to experiment without spending a bomb - there's room in your life/bathroom for this palette. ALL ages, and ALL skintones welcome.
Now, as a sidenote - I've tried to take several pictures of myself wearing the shades but firstly - it is really difficult to take nice pictures of your eyelids. Kudos to all those Instagram beauty girls that make it look so easy. Secondly, I think my problem is that I only ever wear eyeshadow when I'm going out-out. And when I'm going out-out I'll have a glass of wine or two while I'm getting ready and therefore pictures tend to end up something like this:
