MAKEUP REVOLUTION X FRIENDS COLLECTION


Friends is possibly the most popular 90s TV show in existence, practically everyone knows about it and everyone has a favourite even if they have just watched one episode. For that reason, I think it is pretty smart to do a Friends Makeup Collection based on the hit sitcom, I was certainly surprised that Makeup Revolution would be stepping up to the mantle. Only because Makeup Revolution are based in the UK and I am  shocked that this hasn't already been done by a US company. Maybe it has. 

 
In total, there are a lot of eyeshadow palettes - four - one for each female main character and a general one, three lipsticks corresponding to the three girls again and a whopping six lip glosses representing the main cast. There are also cosmetics bags, scrunchies and a mirror up for grabs. The one big main eyeshadow palette called the Flawless Limitless Eyeshadow Palette. This palette has 24 eyeshadows and three highlight shades. 

The palettes for the female characters are smaller nine pan palettes which are really popular now thanks to the Huda Beauty Obsessions Palettes and ABH Norvina Mini Palettes. Rachel's Palette above is very pink, neutral and girly, she is the quintissential girly girl of the show so in that sense this palette fits and has wider appeal as the palette comprises of every day colours one could easily wear for work, school, college or shopping. We know Rachel loves to shop. 

Monica's Palette is in purple packaging and she has the more classic warm toned colours, a lot of browns and golds. This is actually the most wearable palette in my opinion, given that we are almost in autumn season. I feel this palette encapsulates the 90s makeup and aesthetic which was very brown in general. 


I can't remember much about Phoebe's makeup, although her hair always looked amazing and interesting as she always mixed it up. Phoebe's Palette, however, makes the least sense for me. It is boring, icy and pale, a lot of pale or pastel shades. Potentially to suit Phoebe's fair complexion, but actually I think Monica was paler than her. In short, Rachel's Palette feels like a spring palette, Monica's Palette a fall/autumn palette and Phoebe's Palette feels like a winter palette. 


There are three lipsticks, one for each female main character. Monica's Lipstick is a soft peachy pink, cute and wearable. I would have liked a warm orange brown. Rachel's Lipstick is a soft mauve, which is a 90s colour I believe. Phoebe's Lipstick is described as a deep pink, I don't ever recall seeing a deep pink lip on the show but at least this better reflects her personality than her eyeshadow palette.  

This time, the male characters also get some love with six lip glosses. Rachel's Gloss is clear with rose gold shimmer particles, her gloss is probably the most wearable. Monica's Gloss is a neutral mauve with silver shimmer. Phoebe's Gloss is a deep wine shade. Joey's Gloss is a brown toned nude that looks really reflective and almost pink in the photo, but that could be flash. Chandler's Gloss is a coral nude and Ross' Gloss is a deep plum pink colour. I think they are all fairly pretty, I can certainly imagine Phoebe wearing her gloss. It would have been fun to have a chapstick/lip balm named after Chandler as I think he does wear it in the show at some point. 


Finally, there are also some cosmetics bags to store all these lip products, a mirror which I am not sure what it is in reference to and scrunchies which are a really cute touch. I think the scrunchies are sold out already. I like the idea of this collection, it just seems like a fun range of products to play around with. I love that the shadows in the palettes have names that pertain to the character like Phoebe's Palette has shade names like Smelly Cat and Triplet and Rachel's Palette has shade names like Tag, Chip and On a Break (why wouldn't you have Ross or Emma?). I don't think this collection takes itself too seriously and fans of the show will likely be satisfied. I am not a huge Friends Fan, I watched it once all the way through and it was entertaining and exactly what I needed when I was writing my dissertation in 2018. I know plenty of people who have watched this show over and over again. Comment your favourite Friends' character below and let me know your thoughts on the Makeup Revolution x Friends collection. Thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed. Take care.

  3. This collection is a lot nicer than I thought it was going to be. To be honest I thought the idea was a little strange at first. I'm 100% with you on Phoebe's palette not making a lot of sense. I like Monica's palette the most, and I love 9 pans like the Huda palettes so I think this was really smart of them as well x
