The Soph x Revolution Extra Spice Palette!

Hey everyone!

Have you seen how gorgeous the Extra Spice palette is!? Oh my. I must admit, I purchased some Revolution eye shadow palettes a couple of years back and found them to apply awfully. I have since fallen in love with a highlighter palette by them and Jake put one of their eyeshadow palettes in my stocking and I was pleasantly surprised by how lovely it is. For these reasons and the fact that this palette looked too gorgeous not to want, I needed it. Jake kindly surprised me with this one too and it was waiting for me at my door when I arrived home from my holiday to Cinque Terre last Tuesday.

The Extra Spice palette is SophDoesNails third collab palette with Revolution. I wasn’t too keen on the first eyeshadow palette but I would still really love to purchase the highlighter palette when I’ve finished up with my current one. I’m very much a sucker for warm colours and down to the name “Extra Spice”, it really sets a hot tone for the inspiration of this palette. As Jake bought me it, I thought it’d be fun for him to give me a theme or two that I could try and create a look with. Along with of course my overall thoughts of the palette after using it a few times.

I’ll also be trying out two pairs of KISS lashes alongside these looks, kindly sent to me by the lovely people at Alex Silver. There’s a brand new “Triple Push-Up” collection out now so I’ll be reporting back about how they look and wear!

Sour Cherries

For this look I used the shade “Everyday” as a base as it’s a subtle shimmer. I then used the reddish-pink “Twenty One” almost all over the lid, trying to create a bit more of an ombre effect and making it darker at the edges. I thought this was the best colour to use as the inspo for the look is cherries. Then the whole sour part of it just made me think of the fizziness of the sweets so the silver shade “Infinity” seemed the most fitting to use. I just used a flat shadow brush to pack this onto the my lid, especially concentrating on the middle area.

Last but not least, I smudged a little bit of the dark emerald shade “Aurora” along the lower lash line to give it a darker smoke. The only irritating thing I found was that this silver shade started to print onto the upper area of my lid as you can see in the photos!

The lashes I used here are from the new Kiss lashes collection that I mentioned called “Triple Push-Up”. These are called Corset and are quite wispy and clustered. I personally found them quite a lot harder to apply than the previous Kiss lashes I tried due to the band being thicker and not as flexible. This is to be expected as they pack a lot more of a punch density-wise. I got them to stick on my second try which isn’t too bad and I’d definitely recommend them for someone who likes much more of a glam and dramatic look.

Hercules

On this look I used the yellow shade “Vitamin C” as a sort of base to blend everything into as its quite chalky and subtle, especially focusing on the inner corners of the lids with it. I then used the burnt shade “Sweet N Sour” as the outer colour as it was the bolder orange out of the two in the palette. With the theme Hercules, you’re going to go for something strong. And then I used the shade “LA Sun” just to give it a pop of yellowy gold goodness. I’m definitely one of those people who doesn’t feel a look is complete without a bit of shimmer. I’ve never been someone who does a complete matte look and is happy with it! I also popped one piece of large orange glitter in the corner of my eyes that I got off eBay for a bit of fun.

The lashes I used here were the style Ritzy from the Kiss True Volume collection. They really remind me of Ardell wispies with a little something extra. This is definitely not a bad thing as they are my favourite lashes ever. The Ritzys are just as semi-natural looking but I’d say they’re just that little bit longer and for adding a bit more of a glam touch. Just as I said in my last Kiss review, the band of these is thin, the glue is fabulous and they’re real good for beginners for these reasons!

My Thoughts On The Extra Spice Palette So Far

I am loving it! I actually genuinely cannot fault it so far other than a slight bit of transfer but that’s nothing that can’t be fixed with a bit of primer or setting spray. Aswell as these looks, I’ve tried a few more simple styles too to give as accurate a review as possible. The colour pay off is incredible, as you can hopefully see in the photos. The blend-ability is fabulous on both the mattes and shimmers I have tried. Admittedly, I do not think it’ll be an everyday palette for me due to it being so colourful. It’ll definitely be one I go to when looking to do some funky styles! I’m really glad Jake got me it as for £10 it’s an absolute steal and has been lovely to try out.

Have you got anything from either of the Soph x Revolution releases? What do you think of Extra Spice?

’Til Next Time,
BTB Xx

  12. You already know how much I ADORE these looks but I’ll say it again, you’ve done a bloody amazing job Al. My favourite is still the Hercules one, especially the little jewels in the corners, that’s such a lovely little addition. I didn’t realise the palette was so cheap, I’m super tempted to pick myself one up now as the pigment looks incredible x

  13. Alice these makeup looks you’ve created are absolutely stunning – I love them! You’re so talented! I absolutely love a shimmery/sparkly/glittery eye shadow look too 🙂 What a bargain as well for £10! You’ve inspired me to create more makeup looks for my blog. Hopefully I can grab some time soon to create a few xo

    So, so cute that Jake surprised you with this – I need someone in my life to do that for me.. 😍 I’ve had my eye on this since Sophie announced it on her YouTube, I just haven’t got round to purchasing it yet! I love both the looks you’ve created although I must admit, the second is my favourite. The palette looks as though it blends really well, and the lashes you’ve used for this look really suit you as well – so long and voluminous! 🙊 This post has made me want it more than I already did, if that’s even possible.. 😍

  15. ABSOLUTELY love the second look….stunning
