Revolution X Soph Extra Spice Palette First Impressions

I’ve been dying to try out the Makeup Revolution Soph Extra Spice Palette since I got it in the mail but I was waiting until I could film a first impressions video. It’s hard waiting sometimes, I always want to dig right into new palettes. The Soph Extra Spice Palette is a collaboration between Revolution Beauty (or Makeup Revolution, Revolution Pro, whatever their brand name actually is) and Soph Does Nails. I saw so many great reviews on her first collab palette with MUR but the Soph Extra Spice palette called to me more. It’s probably all those Autumn orange and yellow shades. If you’re reading my first impressions right now make sure to check out my Full Review of the Soph Extra Spice Palette!

Revolution X Soph Extra Spice Palette
First Impressions

YouTuber Soph Does Nails has whipped up, prepared and designed another revolutionary eyeshadow palette, featuring 18 handpicked extra spicy shades. A vivacious variety of shimmer and matte shades suitable for everyone. Wrapped in shiny rose gold and matte nude packaging. — REVOLUTION BEAUTY

For $15 USD this palette is huge! I love that the front of the palette is like a rose gold mirror and has Soph’s signature on the front. It’s gorgeous! The Soph Extra Spice Palette contains 18 shades. 12 of those 18 are matte shades which is awesome, I love having more mattes than shimmers. Don’t get me wrong, I love my metallics & shimmers but mattes make a full look. I can easily make an every day look with just the mattes and use the 6 shimmers for some Extra Spice! S’cuse the pun…

I’m loving this colour story, it looks so interesting to me! As I said those oranges and yellows scream fall vibes, but there’s also a cozy blue, purple and a shimmery silver! This palette has so much potential! I’m going to cook up a storm with all this spice! (ok, I hear you. Enough with the puns xD).

In all honesty I prefer the Extra Spice palette to the Emily The Wants Palette. Not that I don’t like that palette, it’s good, but the shades in this MUR palette are much more unique to my pre-existing collection.

The Formula

The shimmer shades in the Soph Extra Spice Eyeshadow Palette are the bomb! Do people still say that? Dear God I feel old. Well I said it. These shimmers. Are. The. Bomb. I’m obsessed with the silver shade Infinity, it is so stunning! It will be gorgeous when I start creating blogmas looks in December, it screams holiday to me.

But since we’re in Fall I really wanted to dig into those oranges. It killed me not being able to dig into this palette the first morning that it arrived because I was working on something different for my blog and I needed to use another palette, but the second day I got my hands dirty. Quite literally, I swatch makeup all over my hands whenever I play with new palettes!

The makeup look I created for my blog with the Extra Spice Palette was completely different than the look I filmed for Youtube where I used just about all of the makeup from my Makeup Revolution Haul. I absolutely love how this look turned out! I can’t wait to play with these colours again in the coming weeks and when I write my full review on the MUR Soph Extra Spice Palette. This look is all about those oranges, and is heavily inspired by the look Allie Glines did on YouTube with the ColourPop Good Sport Palette.

    It’s so funny because I saw the palette on the Ulta Website, and I thought these colors were so beautiful! I’m so glad to hear that you loved the formula of the palette! The eye looks that you created look so amazing, it gets me even more excited to buy this palette! xxx

    Ok those orange shades look so flattering against your skin tone and upon having a closer look at that last photo I found at least 6 shades that I wanted lol. So I had to go and see the swatches of this palette and oh my!! 😍 I’m so convinced. I must have this palette. I already put it in my cart. I’ll have to get it as part of my birthday haul later this month lol.

      I hope you love this palette as much as I do! I did have a little bit of trouble blending the shade brownies but other than that it’s applied pretty smoothly. I’ll have one more look using this palette in tomorrows blog post =)

      Thank you!! I’m quite pleased with how this look came out, I didn’t even need to cut the center of the halo to make the yellow pop. I think you’d really like this palette!

      • October 4, 2018 / 10:06 pm

        I totally would!! If it were available in stores I would probably snatch it up! But maybe next time I place an online order…

      Thank you!! I love the oranges so much, it’s such a Fall palette!

    The orange eye look in this post is absolutely stunning! This eyeshadow palette looks really nice, there’s a good mix of shades and mattes and shimmers too! I’d say this palette would just about suit everyone’s complexion 🙂

      Thank you! I was stunned by how well it came out. I’m not used to having vibrant yellows in my palettes and I love it 🙂
      Overall I think it’s a great palette!
