Tomi Kay Does Beauty Makeup Revolution Fortune Favours The Brave Review


I went into Superdrug one day for something totally unrelated and I spotted the Makeup Revolution Fortune Favours The Brave tester. As soon as I met this palette, I just knew I had to have it. It was love at first sight, so you can imagine my disappointment when I found out it was out of stock. I trolled the Superdrug stores in my area almost everyday with no luck. The retail assistant had to advise me to get it online, but I really hate buying makeup online. Guess I'm not a fan of all the waiting and hoping against hope that the palette doesn't come with 3 damaged eyeshadows. The fact that it was not in stock for months only made me want it more, talk about wanting what you can't have. I'm sure you can imagine the immense joy I felt when I saw that the little Superdrug in the city had this palette.

OK let's talk about the palette, Makeup Revolution makes a number of eyeshadow palettes but Fortune Favours the Brave was the first one I bought and I was not disappointed.
The eyeshadows come housed in this stunning matte gold packaging. Its like nothing I've seen before. Plus their palette comes with a  full sized mirror and a double ended applicator brush and not the flimsy sponges that are in staple in eyeshadow palettes. I'm not saying the brush is particularly amazing but A for effort.

I love the range of colours and the fact that one can achieve a variety of looks that with this palette.
The palette contains a mix of matte shadows, glimmers and some sheen ones. The palette has four baked eyshadows which I really really love. The baked eyeshadows and the darker colours are more pigmented than the lighter ones. I always use a primer with my eyeshadows to ensure the best colour payoff.

30 eyeshadows for £9.99. I have to say that's a steal plus Superdrug is almost always doing one sale or the other.

FIRST ROW

This is my first set of swatches, I struggled to get some decent pictures so I apologise for that. I'm learning.

I have not used a primer with these swatches.

THIRD ROW

And you can see that some colours barely show up on my skin so make sure to use a primer to achieve the best colour pay off.

You can also see that there is a variety of colours and finishes.


Although not every shade is perfect, it is a beautiful and practical palette. There are a wide variety of shades to choose from. One thing I particularly love is that one can create various eye looks with just this palette. You can make neutral looks, full on glam and smokey eye looks.



Do you have this palette? Or any other Makeup revolution one? 

Let me know what you think.
