Why, helllo. We are finally on the road to wellness over here. We ended up taking Hunter back to the doctor yesterday and they gave him antibiotics for an ear infection (where the hell did that come from?) so I'm hoping that helps him. I'm just over here overdosing on coffee and cough drops. Just not together. Because that sounds really gross.
Yeah, mine is totally scratched up. Oops!
Anywho, today I have for you a full review on the Makeup Revolution Affirmation Palette! This baby has 32 shadows that include neutrals, roses, coppers, chocolates, purples and smokes - a little somethin' somethin' for everyone in just about every finish imaginable.
Let's talk about the palette! The palette itself is a great size and is sturdy with a full-sized mirror on one side which makes it great for traveling. It also has a great clasp that closes the palette without any worry of it accidentally opening.
Onto the shadows. At first swatch, a lot of the shadows felt hard and you almost had to dig at them to get pigmentation. Once you got through that first hard (but thin) layer, the majority of them were fine and easy to play with. It almost seems like the more you use the shadows, the easier they are to work with. My two problem shadows are the black shadow in the bottom right corner and the dusty plum in the third row, third from the right. They were both chalky and difficult to work with. The metallics in this palette were easily the smoothest and most pigmented but I was pretty surprised to see most of the mattes were nicely pigmented as well.
Overall: I recommend this palette but be aware that the pigmentation gets better with more use. Does that even make sense? The metallics are amazing in this palette. The mattes come in a close second with pigmentation.
