Most Helpful Positive Review My "go to" Green pallet!
After staying away from Revolution eyeshadows for sometime due to my poor experiences, I was pursueded to purchase the Avocado pallet by my absolutely favorite small influencer "Theresa is Dead". She demo'd the pallet with two separate looks and did a wear test for longevity. Now, Theresa is very picky about her greens and compared this pallet to Colourpop's Just my Luck pallet, which I was planning on getting. Theresa much preferred the color story of the Avocado, which in turn helped me make my final decision. I was not dissapointed! Luckily, I received this pallet in perfect shape (Ulta really needs to work on insulating their products for shipment) thank goodness! The eyeshadows are easily blended and offer a true to color pay off on the eye. They last all day, mind you I prep and set my eyes before I apply any eyeshadow. You don't need to wet your brush for a shiny pay off but I'm sure you'll be very pleased with either technique. Overall, I am extreme impressed with this pallet and I ❤️ Revolution should thank Theresa for buying, testing and posting her glowing review. I would have never even thought to buy this pallet without her valuable feedback.
The color story is much more varied than the Just my Luck and therefore you have more choices for overall looks whether you want a modest daytime look or a more vibrant evening out. A great pallet for a wonderful price!
Most Helpful Critical Review Not For Sensitive Eyes
I wanted to try something to bring out my hazel eyes besides my usual golds & purples, so this palette was my top choice with its wide range of browns, holds, teals, & greens. The palette is cute & the mirror size was perfect!
I wore the eyeshadow all day without primer/setting spray, & the colors stayed in place. The colors did not melt away or stick in my eye crease. The colors were also vibrant, the colors in the palette looked like the color i had applied to my eyelid, & they were all super pigmented. I really loved the look I was able to create!
The issue I had was that it irritated my eyelid skin; after maybe 15 mins of wearing the product, my eyelids began to burn. I had hoped the sensation would stop, but unfortunately it persisted throughout the entire day until I couldn't handle it anymore. I applied the eyeshadow around 10am & removed it by 4pm because of the burning. Sadly, I decided to exchange the Avocado Palette with a different brand.
I have found overtime my skin is sensitive to certain brands of makeup, including Almay & Mary Kay. I hope your experience will be better than mine! I would recommend the palette to anybody who doesn't have sensitive skin, & I will definitely try this brand again in the next few years in hopes that they may have changed their eyeshadow formula.
Reviewed by 69 customers Pleasantly surprised!!

This was definitely an impulse buy for me, and honestly I wasn't expecting it to perform that well because of the price and the packaging, and wow did it prove me wrong. This palette is fantastic! I am a makeup artist and have tried almost everything, and this palette has better pigmentation than a lot of the high end palettes I own. It's a little powdery (which doesn't bother me personally), but besides that it's long lasting, super pigmented, and very unique! I would highly recommend; the price is right too! I will definitely be buying more products from I Heart Revolution in the future! :)
GREAT COVERAGE & COLORS

bumps on one of the shades
maddie from california
this pallet is absolutely gorgeous, but after about three months one of my shades got a couple bumps. i thoroughly looked at all the other shades and found nothing, but still disappointing.
Lots of fallout, Lots of pigment !
Cheri from CA
I really just love this palette because of the versatility.

Creamy and blendable
Mommyof2 from Los Angeles California
This Palette blew me away! Its so pigmented and the colors are so beautiful together. I thought I wasn't going to enjoy it since its my first green/blue color story palette. But I fell in love with it as soon as I started putting on my eyes. The colors blend so good!!
I love this collection of summer colors!
Jane from Green Bay
Love the case and collection of cool colors, but wish more of the shadows were matte instead of glittery.
Aza121188 from San Diego California
I love the color story, the pigmentation, and staying power of this pallet. However, there is a lot of fall out because it's super powdery which isn't a big deal if you do your eyes before foundation. Even though it's powdery I didn't have any issue with having color pay off or it dusting away as some of the reviews say on here. It blends super easily and the greens in here are to die for. I gave it a four because of the powdery factor.

Very Nice Colors
Avocado Heaven from Texas
This is a really nice palette. Not much fallout and the colors stick
Beautiful and great quality.
J from Texas
This brand is really hit or miss, but this palette is gorgeous. Super pigmented, amazing quality, I get compliments every time I wear it. If you are looking for a green eyeshadow I HIGHLY recommend this!!!! Why buy one single eyeshadow from a higher brand at the same price as this full palette?? It's beautiful. You will not regret. I use it all the time.
surprisingly pigmented palette
Kels from Atlanta,
Surprisingly pigmented and wears well. I would buy this brand again for the price
Great value for the price
Whitney from Vermont
I bought this palette while it was on sale as I had never used the brand before. I am extremely happy with it. The colors are great and very easy to work with. The metallic shades are wonderful as well.
I was drawn to it because I didn't have a color story like this in my collection. Very impressed with the colors, blending, and quality.
All hail There's is Dead for this recommendation
AllTheHappySquirrels from Olympia, WA
Theresa is Dead recommended this for folx interested in an affordable free palette, so when I saw it on sale I knew it was meant to be.
I used it as soon as I got it - no skin prep, primer, or anything. I was just too excited to have anything come between me and some grungey green goodness. Even without any kind of base, the shadows didn't need any extra building to show up. They blended well and didn't muddy, either. I didn't really expect it to last long on my oily lids, but I was surprised to see it held up for a couple of hours, and there was minimal creasing.
I'm not a huge fan of the formula, as it kicks up a lot in the pan, and I probably won't use the glittery shades. Overall, I really like this palette and can see myself creating a variety of looks with it.
Perfect if you love green shadows
Ani from Houston
If you swatch before using (like I do) you'll find the mattes are dry and the shimmers are very flaky.
However, applied with primer on the eyes, the mattes apply and blend beautifully. The shimmers can be controlled by applying with a wet brush.
The colors all go together perfectly and there are many looks you can do. One thing I don't like is that there is a lot of glitter in this palette.
I like the different green hues on this palette
Susy from Cypress TX
The first time I tried them my eyes itched a little bit and thought I wasn't going to be able use them. I gave them a second chance and I made sure I applied eye primer to my entire eye area and I avoided applying the shadow very close to my water line, my eyes didn't itch as the first time, so far I will wear the shadows but I won't go overboard applying too much product.
Really pretty colors
Pammie952 from Kingsport Tennessee
I haven't worn green shadows in years but was drawn to this pallet. I was very pleased when I received this product. It has a very nice range of matte and shiny greens plus other complimentary colors like a bronze copper color. I can't wait until I am no longer working from home and can wear these somewhere other than my own home.

the formula is creamy and super pigmented. Love it
Jess from NY
I love this palette
Maddiemay from NWA Arkansas
I had been looking at a few green palettes and I'm so glad I landed on this one. The colors are pigmented, beautiful, and blend beautifully. I feel like I can make quite a few looks and have already used most of the colors. I will say that it is best to use the glitters on a damp brush, but with a bit of setting spray they apply perfectly! So, so happy with this purchase.
