I Tried Makeup Revolution for the First Time in YEARS- Review for the GOT 3 Eyed Raven Eyeshadow Palette

22

After many disappointing products from Makeup Revolution, I stopped buying from the brand. They’ve slowly been getting my attention again, though, and I decided to give them another chance. I bought quite a few products but I wanted to review the most exciting ones (in my opinion) first; the Game of Thrones 3 Eyed Raven Eyeshadow Palette and Game of Thrones Arya Stark Matte Bomb. Let’s talk about the palette first!

The GOT 3 Eyed Raven Palette is $18.00 and contains eighteen shades: ten mattes and eight metallics/shimmers. The packaging is made of tin, has a mirror and a firm clasp closure. I personally love the tin packaging, but some may not. With the basic info out of the way, let’s talk pros and cons!

😄Pros:

  • I love the theme of this palette. Does the theme really matter? No but I’ve learned that if I enjoy the theme and packaging, I’m much more likely to reach for the product.
  • I also love the color story. I don’t own many neutral palettes so this one is useful in my collection. I also think it’s a great color story to mix and match with other palettes and singles.
  • I was amazed by how good the formula is and it really proved to me that this brand has improved their quality. The mattes are pigmented but not too pigmented. They’re so easy to blend and build up. The shimmers were also great to work with and most of them rivaled my more expensive shadows from Lorac.
  • The shade Vision makes a beautiful face highlighter. I’m wearing it like this in the second look below.

😣Cons:

  • All of the shimmers apply best with a finger. They will show up with a brush but they won’t be as intense and they create a lot of fallout.
  • The two pink shades, Past and Serve, are very meh. Serve, the matte, is especially lackluster. I also don’t feel that they go with the color story very well. In my opinion, a forest green matte and a white/green duochrome shimmer would have been AMAZING in those spots. Luckily, I own singles in those shades and plan to use them with this palette in the future.
  • There are some very similar shades, especially between the light brown mattes and gold shimmers.

Swatches & Shade Descriptions:

These eyeshadows do have names but no shade descriptions so I will describe them to the best of my ability. I’ll be going from left to right, top row to bottom row. These photos were taken with flash to show off the sparkle.

Eyeshadow Looks:

I created three looks using this palette. I almost always use an eyeshadow primer and set it with powder. I really don’t have much to say about each individual look because I like them all so I’ll just jump into the step by step process.

  1. I set my primer with Ancient.
  2. I blended Warg into my crease. I also applied it on the outermost part of my lid and smudged it on my lower lash line. 
  3. I applied Wildfire on my lid.
  4. I tapped Dragonglass on top of Wildfire on the innermost part of my lid.
  5. I applied Vision in my inner corner.
  6. I applied Raven on my water line.
  1. I set my primer with Ancient.
  2. I blended Live above my natural crease.
  3. I blended Creature into my crease.
  4. I deepened my crease with Forest. I also applied this shade on the outermost part of my lid and smudged it on my lower lash line.
  5. I applied Rescue in the center of my lid.
  6. I applied Weirwood Tree on the innermost part of my lid.
  7. I applied Vision and Past in my inner corner.
  8. I applied Serve on my water line. 
  1. I set my primer with Ancient.
  2. I blended Guide above my natural crease.
  3. I blended Children into my crease.
  4. I deepened my crease with Cave and smudged it on my lower lash line. 
  5. I applied Dream on my lid.
  6. I applied Truth in my inner corner.
  7. I applied Forest in my water line.

Brushes Used:

If you are curious about any of the other products on my face, you can find these looks in my recent posts on Instagram.

The Arya Stark Matte Bomb Lipstick is $8.00. It’s described on the website as a muted pink but I think it’s more of a cool toned mauve. It’s packaged in a fat tube with a large doe foot. I really don’t like the packaging because it doesn’t fit in my lipstick organizer.

This was my first time trying this formula and I don’t love it. I think the color is beautiful and the formula is not drying BUT it’s very sticky. I would prefer to have a dry lipstick over a sticky one. It’s also not transfer proof and can wear away in patches. Overall, I say skip the lipsticks in this collection and this formula in general. 

Final Thoughts:

I am really surprised by how much I love the 3 Eyed Raven Palette. I might just have to buy the other two palettes in the collection during the Black Friday sales😅 Let me know what you think about the products I reviewed today and if you would like to see reviews on those other palettes, as well! Thanks for reading and have a great day!
