A couple of weeks ago I made an order from Revolution Beauty’s website while they had an up to 70% off sale on. I bought some Freedom individual eyeshadows to fill an empty palette, some lipsticks for a giveaway, the Retro Luxe Lipstick Vault and this Life On The Dancefloor Palette called Sparklers.
If I remember correctly, there were 4 of these palettes released around the Holiday period that all had different colour stories. Sparklers was the one I really wanted but held off at the time and I’m glad I did because I picked it up for £5 in the sale! Not bad huh?
I loved this palette because of the fun colours and the fact some of the brighter colours look more metallic. I have the Morphe 35B palette but most of those shades are matte so to have a bright, metallic blue- yes please.
The non-sale price for this palette is £10 and you get 24 shades. This is a really good price for that number of pans and the quality of the actual shadows.
As with most of my palette reviews, I’ve not had chance to play with them yet so this is mainly a first impressions post after doing the swatches and feeling the quality of the shadows.
First thing that struck me was that some of the matte shades are slightly chalky and don’t produce the same swatch across the board. Some are slightly more pigmented and some are more patchy. I know I can’t swatch for shite but some shadows all swatch the same. These don’t.
I do find that with some Revolution products, the lightest colours aren’t as pigmented as other brands. If I compare a white Morphe shadow with the white from this palette, the white is so much more pigmented in the Morphe palette. I mentioned the issues with the light shades in my review of the sophdoesnails palette review.
The metallic shades, on the other hand, are buttery and smooth and super pigmented across the board. The more shimmery shades aren’t as pigmented but all the metallic pans are bright and really great quality shadows. That’s one thing Revolution seems to have nailed- a brilliant metallic formula.
I do like the shade range in this palette. Scratch that. I love it.
- Push It
This row looks to be more of the transition shades and apart from Nobodies, they’re all matte shades. This is probably the row I was least impressed with. The first 4 shades barely had any pigment when I swatched them and they were very chalky. Push It is slightly streaky but Nobodies is a beautiful red shimmer shade.
- Beg For More
- Got Back
- Hot Mess
This row was a lot more promising and I LOVE the two lime greens. One’s a metallic and one is matte. Razzle is a pretty silver metallic and these are probably the only 3 shades I’ll end up using on this row purely because I don’t tend to use darker greens but Hot Mess may find it’s way into an eye look somewhere.
- Hot Pants
- Bottoms Up
- Not Subtle
The pinks and purples in this row are gorgeous and I’m so excited to try these out and play around with some brighter looks but Not Subtle looked like you’ve mushed a load of glitter shades together and got a brown murky mess. And it’s brown with such confidence too. I get the need for darker shades but on my skin it does not look attractive.
- Keep Going
- Till Morning
- Last Orders
- Mini Skirt
- Don’t Be Jelly
The light blue in this row is TO DIE FOR. I’m so excited to use this with my matte cyans and make some bold blue looks. Till Morning is reminiscent of the royal blue in the Jaclyn Hill x Morphe and probably the best dupe I’ve found if you can’t afford the JH x Morphe palette.
Overall, this isn’t a bad little palette for £10. The metallic shades are a force to be reckoned with and the other pans aren’t bad either. I can’t say it’s my favourite palette in the world but I can see myself reaching for it when I create fun looks.
Do you have this palette or any of the other Life On The Dancefloor Palettes? Let me know what you think of them!
Lots of Love,
