I’m shook! Makeup Revolution Foil Frenzy – Creation Eyeshadow Palette (Review and Swatches)

High-shine, duo chrome, ultra-pigmented and soft to the touch. These eyeshadows are sickening and I’m here for it. It’s the ultimate companion shimmer palette from the drugstore. Nothing has impressed me so much that it has literally got me shooketh.

The colour pay-off is extraordinary, full opacity in one swipe!

Make up Revolution says the intensity of these eyeshadows lies in its extraordinary formula, in which the pigment is poured, not pressed.” The texture is similar the shimmers in the Huda Beauty Nude Obsessions palette, perhaps, dare I say, even better!

Sure, it’s a bit cheap as you can see from the scratched top of my palette, but I’d buy this for the quality of the product.

This 15-pan shadow palette is housed in a plastic transparent lid with a gold back.

Onto the swatches

First row

L to R – Bright sliver, bright yellow gold, rosy champagne,  bright fuchsia, bright ruby red.

Second row

L to R – Silvery pale peach, yellow gold, lilac, plum with a lavender reflect, rich burgundy.

Third Row –

L to R: Copper, Olive green, reddish copper, brown with gold reflect, Gunmetal with a blue reflect.

I cannot rave enough about these eyeshadows, they are a must have for shimmer, glimmer, high-impact foiled shadow lovers.

Honestly, you can lay down a matte transition shade and go to town on the lid, meshing the foils one into the other. Create an all shimmer look. You can wet a brush to amp up the colour, but these stand out on their own, applied with your finger for maximum colour-payoff

I use it over a tinted primer like MAC Soft Ochre Paint pot or Urban Decay Primer Potion on Eden. I recently discovered the Wet N Wild Cream Liquid Catsuit cream eyeshadow in Camel Back, which is a great, fully opaque primer. Also, there’s no fallout, no glitter glue needed.

There are no glaring drawbacks to this palette, and that’s giving it to you straight, no mixer! Well, the only drawback is that it’s selling out fast, and you can’t get it now because of the no colour cosmetics quarantine. But once we can all revel in make up again, I’d say go out and grab this!

Where to buy: Sold exclusively at Clicks or clicks.co.za

Price: R200 (It’s shhheeeep!)

Until next time my angels,

Stay blessed and beautiful,

Love you to the heaven and back

It must be love! Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter liner (Midnight Cowboy) Review and Swatches


While I am a total hip hop and RnB junkie, I really do like Nirvana, it just wasn’t the same after Kurt Cobain took his own life. I love Aerosmith (love Steven Tyler) and I like Jon Bon Jovi.

So I can say with conviction that if they did come to South Africa, I would buy a ticket to see Aerosmith.

That said, what I would buy more of is the Urban Decay Read more

Mid-week Mystery: Gold Digger?


When I got married, as per tradition, my husband had to buy me 16 gold ornaments. He did . . . and then some. I got earrings, 6 solid gold bangles, a mangal sutra (traditional necklace worn by some married Hindu women), a nose ring and my wedding rings. However, I only wear my wedding rings and mangal sutra because Read more
