Beauty Battle - Revolution x Soph VS Revolution x Tammi

by - Tuesday, June 05, 2018

Hi, everyone! 

It's time for a new make up battle and I decided to compare two eyeshadow palettes from Make Up Revolution and their collaborations with two well know beauty vloggers/youtubers. It will be very interesting to see comparison of the two palettes and see which one works better or if they are as good as each other. 

PS. I have already created a post where I spoke about the Soph x Revolution palette which you can find by clicking HERE.

First, let's have a look at the packagings:

It's obvious that both palettes have different themes, so it's only natural that the packagings differ from one another. Tammi went with a sunset on her packaging and making her palette is reflective, whereas Soph's palette has a nude theme and a simple packaging that still stands out from other palettes. The only similarity I can spot between the palettes is the size of them but nothing else, which I love because they both come from Revolution and they had to stand out from each other to make both collabs successful. 

MakeUp Revolution x Soph Eyeshadow Palette

I wanted to start with Soph's palette, as it's the palette I got first. As you can see, I already hit pan on two shades because I truly do love it and the quality of it is amazing. Some shades can be a little bit more harder to swatch but I have noticed that this problem can be found with Tammi's palette as well, therefore I just think it's a Make Up Revolution thing lol. All of the shades are highly pigmented as you can see by looking at my swatches and this palette can be definitely used as an everyday palette, as well as going out palette too. However, this palette definitely has a lot go fall out and can be a little bit too powdery compared to any high end palette owned by me, but it's not the biggest problem out there considering this palette is only £10. For me, it doesn't stop me from using the palette as I know I have to put less product or just tap my brush off before placing it on my eyelid. We couldn't really expect a palette for £10 to be as perfect as an eyeshadow palette that you can buy for £50 and I think for it's price, this palette is AMAZING and so worth it. I would recommend this to everyone to try out. 

Here are some more swatches on my pale af skin lol. 

MakeUp Revolution x Tammi Tropical Paradise Palette

This palette has launched recently and I was very excited for it. When I first saw it, I knew I had to get it asap because of it's colours and how much I knew I could experiment with it. Then the palette came to my house and.... I wasn't that excited once I opened it. I don't know why, but seeing it in real life wasn't as excited as it seemed online. But that didn't make me hate the palette straight away and I still wanted to try it and play with its colours. And OMG you guys, it was so good! The quality of these shadows, unbelievable! They are powdery but there is no fall out on the eye once you put the shimmers, which was my problem with the Soph's palette, and I was so shocked because I did not expect that. The colours are also so beautiful, the top row is more everyday and bottom is more for going out, unless you're somebody who loves vibrant colours for an everyday look and that is cool too. The bottom three are made for transition and base for different skin types but no one ever said you can't use them as eyeshadows too! Once again, MakeUp Revolution did an amazing job with their collaboration and I would recommend it to everyone. As you can find out by watching the reveal video made by Tammi, this palette was done with darker skin tones in mind as Tammi stated it was always hard for her to find a palette that would suit her skin type. I think that is amazing because the beauty industry deserves more diversity and everyone should feel included and find something for them. I feel like the Sophie palette could be seen as more suitable for lighter skin tones but hey, everything is for everyone. I am very pale and can still work with both so I am sure that someone darker or of a medium skin colour could still work with them both too. Of course it is a personal choice which palette, if any, you'd like to try but I honestly and truly recommend both!

Who do you guys think is the real winner of this battle? Well...

Personally, I love both of these palettes and think that they are both unique in their own ways. They both differ in good ways and can be used together and on its own to create amazing everyday and going out looks. However, I need to stop saying in my battles that I love both products (like in my previous battle, lol) I decided to pick my winner. 

My winner is........
Make Up Revolution x Soph! 

The reason for my choice is that I have owned this palette for so long now and I am so obsessed at using it, which you can already tell by the pictures and me hitting pan lol. However, that doesn't mean I don't like Tammi's palette because I still adore it, and I'm sure that the more I use it, the more obsessed I will be with it. The fact that there's no fall out with shimmers alone made me obsessed already, so my goal is to use this palette more now and fall in love with it more.

Let me know if you own any of these palettes and which one you'd like to get if you don't. Who do you think is the winner of this battle? Comment down below & I'll reply! 

OMG GUYS! As I was writing this post, Sophie has posted on her instagram news that her second collab with Make Up Revolution is coming TOMORROW and I am sooooooo excited! Check out the pictures posted on Soph's instagram below & let me know if you'd like a review of her second collab too!

Love, Olivia xo
