Makeup Revolution Pressed Glitter Palette Midas Touch Review, Swatches: Hi guys, How have you all been doing? It’s been such a long time since I wrote a blog post and it feels so good to be back. I’ve decided to celebrate my return with one of my favourite makeup products. I’ll be reviewing an eyeshadow palette and not just any eyeshadow palette, it’s a pressed glitter palette from makeup revolution.

Makeup Revolution Pressed Glitter Palette Midas Touch Review, Swatches

The makeup revolution pressed glitter palettes were recently launched in India and I got two of them from the nearest anez ansare store. These palettes are available in a total of three variants which are “hot pursuit”,” Midas touch” and “abracadabra”.

I got myself the first two and today I’ll be doing a review on “Midas touch”. These palettes were sitting on the main shelf at the store where they usually keep hot launches and they caught my eye immediately. I was overjoyed to find pressed glitter eyeshadow palettes as loose powders are extremely messy and hard to travel with. The sales girl told me that the glitters could be worn with or without glitter primer or glue. A good concealer should do the trick is what she said. Anyway, read on to see how this product fared for me.

In Detail Makeup Revolution Pressed Glitter Palette Midas Touch Review, Swatches and My Experience

The palette comes in a basic cardboard box which is square in shape. The packaging seems to be made entirely out of cardboard and is not sturdy or foolproof. The packaging however looks extremely eye catching due the glittery covering. It has actual glitter particles and looks stunning giving the overall look of a glitter palette.

The closure is magnetic and is quite fragile. Overall, I’m not a huge fan of the packaging as long as appearance is not taken into consideration. The palette has a huge mirror inside and I love it because most palette either have zero or small mirror through which you can barely see your whole eye. This mirror lets me do my whole makeup.

Each palette has nine shades and all the pans are of equal size. They are arranged in rows of three. The shade names are mentioned below each pan. One thing I noticed is that the pans were quite fragile. One of the colours popped out when I jerked the palette around a bit so this is clearly not klutz-friendly? . This palette is warm toned and based on gold and copper toned shades. The nine shades in this palette are:

Makeup Revolution Pressed Glitter Palette Midas Touch Review, Swatches MBF

Lavish: It is a silver-gold glitter which looks more silvery than goldish. This is perfect for fair skinned girls and dark-skinned beauties can use this to create bold cut creases. I love wearing this alone with a winger eyeliner for a simple party look. This could look quite frosty on deep skin tones.

Magnificient: It is a classic gold shade which does not look flashy or gaudy at all. in fact, this is what id call the perfect gold for fair to medium skin looks lovely when paired with warm orangey or copper gives out such ethnic vibes and its hard to not like this one.

Dripping in gold: Though the name gives the appearance that it’s a gold shade, it’s actually a really fiery orange looks blazing and I pair it with brown or copper looks amazing when paired with ‘grand’ and ‘luxe’ from the same palette.

Luxe: It is a burnt gold shade, something I’d call antique gold shade. This is a shade that would look amazing on dusky skinned beauties especially the olive undertone ones. I use it alone sometimes when I’m too lazy to create a complete eye looks coppery on some skin tones and either way it’s a beautiful shade, no doubt.

Grand: It is an orangish copper shade with golden is very warm and loud and it is not something I would prefer to wear needs a base colour to tone it down unless you’re a fan of bold glitters,

Extravagant: It is a cool toned brown glitter and is my go-to shade when I want a glamourous brown Smokey eye look. I simply apply matte brown eyeshadow as a base and top it with this glitter. If your someone who has deep brown or brown eyes, you will rock this is also a bit smoother in application compared to the other shades in the palette.

Fancy: It is fun lime green glitter which I rarely use. I rarely use green on my eyes and even if I do, I stick to a moss green or emerald green. But people who do like fun bright pops of colour would love this looks beautiful and glides effortlessly.

Precious: It is a deep green glitter with specks of gold and looks regal when paired with ethnic wear. Girls with olive undertones will look breath-taking in this colour. I love this shade and it’s a unique one.

Splendid: It is the odd one out in this palette. The formula is quite different compared to the other shades in this does not look like a glitter at all and looks remind me of a face scrub. Cream eyeshadow and granules mixed looks different yet beautiful. The shade is beautiful and you can use this shade without feeling is such a subtle glitter and there is nothing flashy about it. Though I had my doubts at first, this is one of my favourites from this palette.

Coming to the formula and application, these glitters apply smoothly once they have a base. A glitter glue or primer base is the best but a good concealer does the trick too. If you try to apply it on unprimed bare eyelids, it will turn out to be a disaster. The glitter will not blend and it will look patchy and cakey. These glitters are finely milled and do not appear coarse or rough. They transfer from the pan to your fingers or brush easily and apply effortlessly.

I tried many ways to apply this and I got the best results when I primed my eyes, set it with a matte eyeshadow and then applied this glitter on top with a gel eyeliner brush or fingers. You need a densely packed small brush to get an even application.

I use the faces gel eyeliner brush and it works beautifully for me. fingers work best when the area is is impossible to use fingers to do a cut crease or get it into the innermost corner of the eye. If you don’t set it with a matte powder eyeshadow or a setting powder, the eyeshadow will crease and there will be a lot of fallout and smudging.

The glitters have the same wear time as most pressed glitters do. With a primer or glitter glue base it sits for about 3-4 hours without smudging or falling out. The heavier you go, more is the probability that it will fall out. These glitters can be layered but they do crease if you layer them more than three to four times. there is no peeling or flaking unless you have extremely dry eyelids in which case, apply a nice quantity of moisturizing eye primer.

I have used the wet n wild single pressed glitters and the Pac pressed glitters which were also launched at the same time. I personally liked the Pac ones the best and these palettes deserve second. The wet n wild ones are greasy and look like glitter particles in Vaseline.

Overall, I love the consistency and the way it applies. The shade range is pretty good and thee are very few overlapping shades in the palette. Each shade is wearable and there is a shade to suit every skin tone and undertone out there. I absolutely love the theme of the is also an affordable option for people who would love a variety of colours.

I would surely recommend this palette if you’re a fan of glitter. These are more convenient than loose glitters but yet have fall outs. This is not a fool proof option and comes with its own set of flaws. You can always use a good glitter glue or primer to increase its wear time and appearance.
