KAT VON D DUPE | Makeup Revolution Shade And Light Eyeshadow Palette

The Kat Von D Shade and Light eye shadow palette has been something I've been desperate to get my hands on. Containing 12 shadows of both contouring (you can contour eyes?!) and highlighting shades, it's certainly a palette that grabbed my attention. If you don't have a spare £36 to spend on 12 eye shadows (!) then fear not! I bring good news. The budget friendly but incredible Makeup Revolution have saved the day and brought out the most amazing dupe to the original Shade and Light. I couldn't believe it when I spotted this in Superdrug, at £8 it's a real bargain and I couldn't get over how similar the shades where - they're practically identical! All 12 shades look very close to Kat Von D's £36 version. The question is, is it as good as it looks?

I was a little worried it wasn't going to be as pigmented. All the colours are quite natural and subtle - very unlike my usual shades but I had absolutely no need to worry because the colour pay off is just beautiful. I applied the shadows to my eyes using the double ended brush that came with the palette. It's actually a really good quality brush which pleasantly surprised me. The look I'm wearing is the four shades at the end. I love that they're very warm based, a brown/ red eye is always a firm favourite makeup look of mine. I don't use any primer on my eyelids and this product stays put for hours and looks flawless at the end of the day! I think this palette is going to gorgeous on all skin tones which is always a great thing.

Although getting the Kat Von D Shade & Light would be lovely, I'm more than happy to use Makeup Revolutions incredible dupe offering which gets a massive thumbs up from me! I can't wait to experiment with all of the looks I can create with this palette which I think will look beautiful throughout all of the year.

Would you invest in Shade & Light or buy the dupe?
