Since the surprising Sleek Force of Nature Limited Edition Palette had stopped me from posting about THIS palette, I only get around reviewing a big love of recent weeks now.

New-Trals are the new NEUTRALS
Upgrade your new natural eye looks with the new generation of natural shades.

Make up Revolution Newtrals vs Neutrals

Ever since I saw the first pictures of this palette on Instagram (where else?) I basically had been waiting for the release date. An actual decision IF I should buy it or not wasn’t needed. At all. The composition of the palette decided for me: Neutral and reddish tones alternate, the top row might seem quite familiar to a few make up lovers. 

  Make up Revolution Dupe alert!

Again. After taking care of Urban Decay and Lorac Bestsellers one took to Lime Crime now. The Gothic Venus Palette has been duped in said row quite perfectly as this comparison shows.

The bottom row consists of more neutral, rose tinted eyeshadows – but more about these further down this post.

Swatching these bad boys was relatively simple – I was surprised to find that the matte, seemingly brown shadows Neutral and Adapt show a gorgeous red-pink undertone. The three metallic shimmer can be applied rather subtly as well as bold foils, the chunky particles suggest a higher risk of fallout though – a damp brush is recommended.

I especially love the two matte shadows, they blend out any red or rose look perfectly – they could seem misleading though as they don’t look as pinkish in the pan.

Personal and Vogue are the friendliest red shadows here, even red look beginners could pull these two off, say for work or school. Trend looks more orange in the pan than it applies, a vibrant brick red with tiny particles – it’s smooth and looks pretty matte.

New-Tral and Tone look fairly similar in the palette, on the skin Tone shows up as a deeper wine shade – the texture is pretty similar in both, not flat matte, more like a satin finish. The last shade in the top row, Custom, is an interesting one: A dark redbrown infused with the tiniest particles which you can hardly make out once applied. A perfect colour to shade out reddish looks. 

The bottom row provides you with a beautiful shimmery taupe, Buff, which makes more conservative looks easily doable. Same with Suit, a grey with mauve-reddish base, that blends out nicely even when used on its own. The last shadow, Strong, seemingly is the only actual glitter shadow in the palette: Dark burgundy-purple with pink glitter (fairly easily to be tapped off, if you wanted to) and completes the palette wonderfully.

A matte, cool brown would have been great, but we’re getting to why the palette looks as it does in a second, stay with me…

As mentioned I am finally coming back to the bottom row of the palette. Well? Do you notice anything?

Yep, in fact, it is identical with colours from the Iconic 3, one of the early palettes where shades didn’t get names yet. Cheeky cheeky, what do you think? 🙂

I have obviously been creating plenty of different looks with this palette so far, a fourth one should be coming on the blog soon.

First, I couldn’t resist using the two most obvious lid colours: Personal and Vogue, Strong in the Outer V.

For a more glitzy-glam look I used Style, Suit and Adapt.

Personal and Trend create an orange look in combination with Custom in the crease.

TL;DR

I have been reviewing and recommending a few of the MUR products so far. Their selection of eyeshadow palettes is incredibly vast. Even though all their palettes are stunning and incredible value for their price I could take it all back now and just recommend this one. Which is personal preference, of course, but finally there is a palette with neutral AND red shadows! Made for me, really.

  icon-thumbs-o-up Whoever enjoys playing with red on the eyes needs this palette. Fullstop.

 icon-thumbs-o-down Who would probably get most use out of the bottom, more neutral row, should look into getting the Iconic 3 (Urban Decay Naked 3 dupe) instead.

I find the New-Trals vs. Neutrals palette to be a better selection than the gorgeous but very red Sunset Palette by Sleek, as it makes more subtle as well as flaming red looks possible. As far as I know there yet has to be a high end palette to match this as the Lime Crime Venus Palette only consists of the top row we see here.

So, what do you think? How do you like it, the latest addition to Make Up Revolution’s palette range? Too red? One dupe too cheeky now? Would you rather pick up the Lime Crime palette?

Uh, die ist ja mal awesome! Ich glaube, die brauche ich wirklich. Schon bei der Venus-Palette hab ich scharf nachgedacht, aber hier bin ich mir sicher dass ich zuschlagen werde. Das ist dann nur eine Frage der Zeit. Danke fürs Zeigen! :cat:

Ich find sie einfach nur schön!
Die Palette von Lime Crime kenn ich gar nicht, wenn ich mich nicht irre, oder ist das die mit der Venus vorne auf dem Deckel?
Was ich an den MuR Paletten so sehr mag ist einfach die Qualität und es ist mir sowas von Piepegal wer bei wem abgeguckt hat solang mich das Produkt, welches ich mir gekauft habe, mich vollkommen überzeugt bin ich glücklich.

Ich hab die New-Trals vs. Neutrals jetzt seit knapp einer Woche, kam aber noch nicht so richtig zum schminken. Ich hab sie auch vorgestellt und einen Look gezeigt aber zu mehr hat es zeitlich noch nicht gereicht.

Die Pinsel sehen mal mega aus!

Ja, genau, die Venus – ich habe sie am Ende des Beitrags verlinkt.
Ich finde, das ist genau die richtige Einstellung – Marken”snob” zu sein, zahlt sich doch wirklich für niemanden aus. Außer für die Marke :thumbsup:

Ich hab auch die Iconic3 und die neutrals daheim. Ich hab das mit der unteren Reihe schon befürchtet, aber insgesamt ist das Gesamtpaket der Neutrals so schön, dass es für mich passt.
MUR macht einfach total schöne Dupes und das in einer guten Qualität, ich habe schon drei mal bestellt und trotz des eher hohen Versandes nach Ö, habe ich es nie bereut, noch dazu, weil es alle paar Wochen gute Aktionen gibt, bei denen man Geschenke bekommt oder Rabatt.

Ich glaube, man empfindet den Versand als “hoch”, weil man eben für dieses Geld gleich eine Palette bekommen würde…. :dizzy:
Aber immerhin gibt es wirklich oft Angebote oder freebies :smirk:
