Orangey red eyes have been all the range this season and since the pre-release of a certain flame coloured palette a few weeks ago the blogosphere has been lusting after this look like crazy. While I was skeptical at first, I am now completely sold!
I bought the New-trals vs Neutrals palette about six weeks ago now as a budget alternative to the internet's craze over Urban Decay's Heat (Who else is seriously poor rn?).
Within the sixteen shades, Makeup Revolution have manage to produce a really useable mix of colours; from smokey and shimmery nude shades to the seasonal must-have orangey reds.
When it comes to staying power, I honestly expected especially the reds to fade rather quickly through the day and on my first, slightly hesitant application the colour impact did lessen over time.
But since then I have tried to build the colour up a little more on initial application and with the help of a decent primer it sticks in place well past the end of my working day! I use Benefit's Air Patrol.
The colours themselves are easily applied and blend nicely, though I tend to use a different brush to the double ended one included in the palette.
Although it doesn't contain the range found within UD's Heat, it also doesn't have that price tag. New-Trals also benefits from the inclusion of shimmery golden colour, which the Heat palette lacks.
For £6.99 I definitely think Revolution have produced a worthwhile alternative and a great budget buy for this sensational seasonal colour craze.
