Makeup Revolution Re-Loaded Eyeshadow Palettes. ABH Dupes?

Hello beauties, it is not a secret that bargain brand Makeup Revolution has been killing it lately with all their new makeup releases. Creating products that dupe high end brands such a Anastasia Beverly Hills, Tarte and Huda Beauty and Too Faced to name just a few. I think this (annoying as it must be to the original creators) is great for those who don’t have the money to spurge £40+ on a single item.

Today’s review is two palettes that are obvious dupes for the Anastasia Beverly Hills ‘Modern Renaissance’ and ‘Subculture’ palettes. But how well do they perform?.


Although the design is really basic on both palettes, I really enjoy the clear window you get in the lid, I like to be able to easily see what is inside my palettes and although there’s no mirror, the neat spacious layout makes up for it.

In the ABH palettes you get 9.8g of eye shadow as the pan sizes are very small, so it is easy to hit pan on your favourite shades. With these dupe palettes you get visibly larger pans, this was a plus for me as it makes it easier to Swirl your brush around without worrying about picking up remnants of another shade or getting the rest of the palette messy.

Makeup Revolution Re-Loaded Palette Iconic Vitality

This is a clear dupe for the ‘Modern Renaissance’ palette and I have to say after looking at many pictures of it (I don’t own it myself) I have to say the colours are extremely close. Inside you will find fifteen shadows (the ABH doesn’t have a black shade) perfect for creating a warm toned smokey eye look. The formula of this palette is a little on the dry chalky side but that doesn’t effect the pigmentation, some shades are just a little harder to blend then others and take some extra work. I’m loving that bright pink and orange shade, I’m going to create some serious magic with those together.

Makeup Revolution Re-Loaded Palette Iconic Division

This ‘Subculture’ dupe was the one I was most excited about trying out, I really loved the colours in the the ABH palette but after it being well known for being a complete flop I wasn’t going to payout the money for it. The colours in the ‘Division’ palette are mostly correct, a few of them differ slightly. There’s fifteen shadows to create vibrant and fun looks with. This does give a small amount of fallout, but I do my eye looks before my base so it is easy to wipe off. Two of the shades in the top row don’t have the best payoff as you will see in the swatches below but the rest we’re perfect. The best part about this palette is how well I find it blends, plus the shimmer shades are incredibly pigmented! I can’t wait to get stuck in and use that mustard shade.


Now for the best part, what if I told you that these palettes were only £4 each?. That’s correct, such a bargain for how good these palettes are and compare to the £43 it would cost you for the ABH palettes. Although some of the shades differ slightly these are the best dupes I have seen as of yet and you might as well just save yourself the money.

You can find the ‘Division’ palette here and the ‘Vitality ‘ palette here.

  4. I recently bought a Makeup Revolution palette – I love the layout and the shades where beaut, but some are sadly quite hard with not the best pigmentation, although others are great, so for £4 I can hardly complain 🙂 xo

    1. I agree, I do find some of their shades harder to blend and dry but you’re right for £4 it’s not too bad. Thanks for reading sweet ❤️

  5. Revolution have seriously upped their game! Don’t hear as many people raving over Rimmel and Maybelline as much now. I tried to get the concealer (obviously) when I went back home to the UK last week but of course my shade was still sold out everywhere 😒😖
