Hey lovelies, I hope you’re all warm and well!
As someone who spends hours upon hours watching makeup videos on Youtube, I couldn’t help but feel so excited and proud when I first heard about this palette! Revolution beauty have teamed up with Carmi MUA to create this gorgeous palette! The Kiss of fire palette contains 10 eye shadows and two highlighters. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it and have a play. Let’s get into the swatches and review shall we!?
The kiss of fire palette contains 10 eye shadows. 4 mattes and 6 shimmers, so a good selection. The colour scheme of the palette is super and reflects Carmi’s quirky personality well. In terms of formulation, the mattes are a little dry but they do blend well. The shimmers are lush! The two pink shades are a big hit. I love that there’s a yellow in there too for the Bibi’s!
The shadows apply really nicely and they’re very pigmented. I had a little trouble with the black though, it wasn’t as intense as I like so I had to double layer it. Nothing major, just something to note.
The picture above shows finger swatches from all the shades in the top row. These shades are great for the summer and add a nice pop of colour to a look. I’ve created a sunrise look with the top shades and although they aren’t usually the colours I’d reach for, it’s nice to have them in my collection to have a play with.
The bottom row of shades are equally beautifully in my opinion. Knowing that purple’s are really hard to make, I was a little worried about this one but it’s gorgeous, creamy and pigmented. A job well done there. Again, great to have some colour in the palette, just look how gorgeous that teal blue shade it!
Sleek black packaging is always a winner. Decent enough size to take travelling and I love the big mirror! Pan sizes are huge so there’s a lot of product! I wasn’t keen on the box texture, it felt a little grainy but I loved the addition of his signature, cute touch!
Let’s start with the highlighters. If you’ve watched Carmi’s video’s you know he loves a blinding highlight. These two didn’t disappoint. The white shade called “flash me!” is perfect for lighter skin tones. It almost has a green shift to it but it looks stunning on the high points of the face. The bronze highlight shade is called “Opulence” and although it’s too dark for my skin tone it would look lovely on deeper skin. I’ve used this shade as eye shadow too because it’s too pretty not to use. The formula is a little dry so I’d recommend a little spray of fix+ on the brush before applying. Both highlighters are very pigmented and I love how they look on the skin.
Overall, I really love this palette and I think Carmi has done a great job and I’m a super proud fan! The quality of the shades are great for the price point and I love the added bonus of two highlighters! The kiss of fire will be well loved over the next few months. I can’t wait to create some more looks with it.
In summery, I love it, get it!
