Hey! If you’re a makeup lover and always on a lookout for affordable makeup products, this post is for you. Today, I’m talking about one of my favorite products. It’s the Makeup Revolution Reloaded Palettes. When these launched, I was so tempted that I ordered all the four palettes in this range. So without any further delay, let’s get started with the Makeup Revolution Reloaded Palettes Review & Swatches.

Note: I’ve already shared my first impression, closeups and swatches all of the 4 palettes on my Instagram. So, don’t forget to add me on Instagram here to catch up with the latest updates.

I ordered them from Tam Beauty (they will forward you to the Makeup Revolution website, so no worries!) as they have a worldwide shipping. Below is a screenshot of my order. You can see the price in INR below!
Product Name: Makeup Revolution Reloaded Palettes in all 4 shades. Shop all the Reloaded palette on Ulta Beauty here.
Price & Quantity: It will cost you Rs. 342.31 or $7 or £4 for 15 x 1.1g i.e 15.5g for each palette.
Availability: You can buy these online from Ulta.
Ingredients: In the images below.
Packaging & Appearance: Makeup Revolution palettes come in a standard sized black case. There are 15 shades in each palette. They look so pretty and tempting to me!

1. Makeup Revolution Reloaded Iconic Vitality
2. Makeup Revolution Reloaded Iconic Division
3. Makeup Revolution Reloaded Iconic Fever

Smell: I think they have a sort of chemical fragrance which is there in most of the cosmetics. It’s not a bothering smell, so don’t worry.
Swatch:All the 4 palettes are swatched in the images a little below.
My Experience: As I already mentioned, I got them from the official website and the tentative waiting period was 3 to 4 weeks. But unfortunately, it was held with the customs and hence there was a delay. Nonetheless, I got them at the end! What I don’t like is the waiting period, as when you order new stuff, you’re excited to play with it but the delay sours the excitement.
I’m going to talk about all the four palettes separately below. But overall, I like the shades, pigmentation and quantity of the palette. Some shades do have fallout while others don’t.
The palettes have warm, neutral as well as a few cool tones. Some of these may not compliment Indian skin tone but can always be used as highlighter or bronzer or to build other shades. Personally, I like all the shades.
While some shades have great pigmentation, other’s need a concealer. The colors are easily build-able. These palettes have shimmery as well as matte shades. Shimmery shades are buttery, smooth and easy to work with whereas the matte are powdery and do have fallout. But that’s not an issue to me as these are pretty cheap, also dupe of the high end Anastasia Beverly Hills palettes. Enough of my rambling, let’s get into the review.
Makeup Revolution Reloaded Iconic Division: Division is such a gorgeous palette. It’s pigmented, creamy and so pretty to look at. All the shades are matte, only 2 are shimmery.
It is an exact dupe of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture palette. Although I’ve not used the ABH one, but surely there’s going to be a difference in the texture and feel of both of them as it’s a dupe! But it’s such an affordable alternative to Subculture palette.
Quickly talking about the shades, it has browns, neutrals and a black. It also has a orange which will work pretty amazing as a transition shade.
Some of the shades are gorgeously pigmented while others need building up like the shimmery olive green.
Makeup Revolution Reloaded Iconic Fever: Next up is Iconic Fever which is amazing if you want to create classy and party kind of looks. As it has 5 shimmer shades, all of them are drop dead gorgeous!
Then there are variation of brown and nude. Orange is also there to add a pop.
Makeup Revolution Reloaded Newtrals 2: This has to be my favorite of all the four. Why? Just because of the pretty colors. It gives me Huda Beauty Dusk Dessert Palette vibes, don’t know why!
Talking about the color schemes, it has brown, bright orange, mauve and 3 gorgeous shimmers. This palette came broken, as you can see in the images below. The prettiest shade came broken and I was actually upset about it. But their customer service is quite professional and promised a replacement or refund if I want to.
Makeup Revolution Reloaded Iconic Vitality: This one is a close dupe of the ABH Modern Renaissance palette. It has more of neutral colors, I guess. Vitality has 4 shimmery shades.
There is also a maroon plus matte black. This color range provides endless possibilities for creation of stunning eye looks.
1. Super affordable
2. Matte & shimmery shades
3. Beautiful pigmentation
4. Creamy shimmery shades
5. Build-able colors
6. Few shades can be used as highlighter and bronzers
7. Great quantity
8. Color scheme is well thought of
9. ABH dupe (the most interesting part!)
1. Some shades do have fall-out
2. Few colors might not suit Indian skin tone (but are still workable)
3. Availability is an issue
Jhalli Diva Verdict: 4.75/5
Will I Repurchase?
I’ve already got all the 4 palettes, so nope. I’ll be getting other palettes from Makeup Revolution.
Do I Recommend?
Yes! I feel these are so good, even for beginners who just want to practice (like me!).
Overall Summary: I feel Makeup Revolution Reloaded Palettes are a must buy and try palettes. The color, pigmentation, texture and appearance is gorgeous. Plus point has to be the price, super affordable!
