Makeup Revolution Ultra Eyeshadows

Eyes Like Angels* is a gorgeous brightly coloured palette by Make up Revolution. This palette comes under the Ultra Eyeshadow Palettes and there is another one named Flawless (more of a neutral palette).
Make Up Revolution Eyes Like Angels Palette


So firstly lets talk about the packaging, this is such a good quality. It comes in a Silver cardboard sleeve/case; I didn't picture this as it was just too shiny and my camera and I couldn't cope but on the back are pictures of all the colours. The packaging is the classic Make up Revolution Black and Gold colours. 
I am surprised at the sturdiness of this palette. I feel I could drop this and I wouldn't have broken eyeshadow everywhere. It also comes with a mirror which is the size of the case, you can actually see what you're doing in it! You know when you get an eyeshadow palette and the mirror is tiny and you wonder to yourself was there any need for this to put into it? It's safe to say I have not wondered this at all with this particular product. I can see my whole face with ease.

Below are swatches of the colours, the palette has rows of 8.

 I am literally blown away by this palette. I love it! With 32 shades I was stuck where to go first, I was a bit like a child in a sweetshop getting over-excited. The three shades that stick out for me are Peacock Dream, Award and Sophisticated Pink. All of the shades bar a couple, are so pigmented it is incredible (pictures really don't do it justice), definitely on par with higher end make up brands in terms of quality. Yes this is a colourful palette but don't get put off by this. There are colours which are extremely wearable for day to day use, and for evenings out. There are others which I wouldn't personally use daily but would be perfect for festivals and things like that, so there is something for every event!

The couple of shades which I'm not to sure on are Pink! (6th one in from the left 2nd pic) and Bold Purple (3rd one in from the left 4th pic) they seem to be a little patchy and come out a different colour to that in the pan, but the rest of the colours are fab, and for only £8.00 this palette is a steal! I  feel like Make up Revolution can do no wrong!

Below are some looks I created using this palette!
