Do you need Extra Spice?

Revolutions Soph x Extra Spice palette

Hey guys,

I’ve been struggling for content lately basically because I’ve not been wearing make-up (well apart from eyebrows and mascara). A couple of months ago I went to the doctors because I was still having breakouts and at 24 that just should not be happening! and hock horror, I have “acne vulgaris” which sounds a lot grosser than what it actually is… It’s basically adult acne. But after 2 months of the tablets and cream my skin started to look sooooo much better and the heat got here, so I just stopped wearing base makeup (unless for a date or a night out). Coming up to a month ago I was shopping with one of the girls and she suggested I start using eye shadows again, so I thought why the hell not? The first eye shadows I though of was the Soph x Revolution Extra Spice palette which I bout on the 26th June and not used!?!

The packaging has a shiny rose gold/ pink and a matte baby pink/creamy colour. And the shades inside….

It’s a bit blury but OHHH MYYY GAWDDD! Look at that shade range!

Just look at it!! There is a great range of colours and God knows how many different looks and combinations you can do with them. So they look good in the pan but are they pigmented?

From top to bottom we have the shades: – Everyday, Running Late, Infinity, Cheesecake, Cookie Dough and Dreams

Then you have:- Vitamin C, Sweet N Sour, Twenty One, Romance, Enchanted and Lakes

Bottom line of shades in sophs palette

Finally there is:- Brownies, Chocolate Orange, Mulled Wine, LA Sun, Aurora and Reputation

How cute are them names though and Soph talks all about her reasons behind them in her Youtube video. When I swatched these, I JUST touched the eye shadows and look at the pigmentation! Cookie Dough is the perfect transition shade for any look you are going for. And one of my favourite combination is Running Late, Sweet N Sour and a little touch of Chocolate Orange in the outer 3rd of my lid and crease then using Vitamin C over the rest of the lid. It’s such a bright yet subtle eye look. It’s a bit strange wearing eyeshadow and no base but you soon get used to it.

If you’re reading this you will probably know where to get this little beauty from, but if you don’t, you can get it in Superdrug and it’s only £10. And like the other Revolution palettes, they are super pigmented (and shimmery if you use the glitttery ones) not to mention how blendable they are. Soooo worth the money! Revolution eye shadows and highlighter are some of the best ones you can find in the drugstore.
