Revolution Re-Loaded Affection

I have to preface this review with the confession that I’m not much into makeup. Or I haven’t been – overweight and wearing glasses, I’ve been of the mind that you can’t make a silk purse from a pig’s ear (being the more polite way of putting it!) – but hitting middle age has lead me to think stuff it! 

Revolution is a brand I’ve had my eye on for a year or so, but then kind of forgot about until my 14 year old daughter dragged me into Superdrug and I saw the stand. There was a generous range, but I opted for their Re-Loaded Affection eyeshadow palette.

The palette contains 15 pans of warm neutral shades with a subtle sparkle, plus a black for dramatic flair. They’re easy to apply and to blend, even by complete noobs like myself.

I love that the pans are replaceable, meaning that if you have a favourite shade and go through that quicker than the others, you can replace just the one pan, rather than buy a whole new palette.

Another thing I love about Revolution is their prices. I tend to find make-up pricey for what you get (£7 for nail polish? I don’t think so!) so this 15 pan palette at £4 is great value. Revolution make-up is also vegan, gluten free, and cruelty free, meaning I can slap up without guilt.


  1. These colours are gorgeous and I like that the shadows are replaceable. There’s nothing worse than hitting pan on your favourite colour and having to buy the whole palette to replace it

  2. I love the Revolution palettes! They’re such incredible quality for the price, I have so many in my collection now.. 😍 I love the gold shade in the middle of the first row, that looks stunning! 🙊
