Makeup Revolution’s Romantic Smoked Redemption palette

After being gifted the Hot Smoked palette, I wanted to try some other MUR goodies. This looked like a good mix of reddish neutrals with a few purples and the two obligatory grey/blacks. About half of the colors are matte, so I have to pay more attention when I’m applying them or I end up with some pretty thin coverage.

Four shadows in the pan, close-up: 1 (medium oyster shimmer), 2 (medium brown shimmer), 3 (light pink-buff shimmer), and 4 (medium olive shimmer) Four shadows in the pan, close-up: 5 (light taupe shimmer), 6 (medium burgundy satin), 7 (light tan matte), and 8 (medium-light taupe matte) Four shadows in the pan, close-up: 9 (light lilac matte), 10 (medium charcoal matte), 11 (medium-light cool grey matte), and 12 (light peach-tan matte) Four eyeshadows, swatched: 1 (medium oyster shimmer), 2 (medium brown shimmer), 3 (light pink-buff shimmer), and 4 (medium olive shimmer) Four eyeshadows, swatched: 5 (light taupe shimmer), 6 (medium burgundy satin), 7 (light tan matte), and 8 (medium-light taupe matte) Four eyeshadows, swatched: 9 (light lilac matte), 10 (medium charcoal matte), 11 (medium-light cool grey matte), and 12 (light peach-tan matte)

MUR started naming the colors in their Revolution collections with the Iconic Smokey...but most of the palettes that I have just have the 12 colors, no names. Left to right, this kit contains:

  • 1 — oyster frost
  • 2 — medium-deep neutral brown satin
  • 3 — cool pink pearl
  • 4 — medium-deep sage satin
  • 5 — light taupe shimmer
  • 6 — medium-deep maroon shimmer
  • 7 — pink-peach matte
  • 8 — faded deep charcoal matte
  • 9 — medium rose-pink satin
  • 10 — deep charcoal satin
  • 11 — medium-deep cool grey matte
  • 12 — medium peach-buff matte
