*Both brands are certified cruelty-free according to Ethical Elephant. Kayla says: Blood Sugar is $52 for 18 eyeshadows / pressed pigments. Red Velvet is $30 for 18 eyeshadows. Blood Sugar packaging is very high quality & unique. The eyeshadow pans are quite large. Both palettes are red & white and come with a mirror. Both brands are known for having a buttery smooth & blend-able formula that lasts all day. Upon trying both brands I did notice that Blood Sugar's shadows took very, very little effort to blend out. Red Velvet doesn’t have a complete copy of Blood Sugar’s shades but there are some good dupes. Red Velvet’s Decadent is a good dupe for Blood Sugar’s Sweetener (my favorite shade) - it’s a bit more orange & brighter than Sweetener. Red Velvet’s Infuse despite being a little bit pinker is a similar color of Blood Sugar’s Fresh Meat. Blood Sugar’s Glucose is a flat bright white while Red Velvet’s Cream Cheese is a bit more ivory in color. Blood Sugar’s Cavity is a very pink shadow while Red Velvet’s Beetroot is a neon version (very pretty!). Red Velvet’s Brown Sugar & Chocolate is a good dupe for Blood Sugar’s Donor & Intravenous.
Some of the shades are close, but I just love the pretty packaging, so can’t do the cheapo
The Revolution palette is not a dupe or trying to dupe the Blood Sugar palette. I’ve got both. They have similar color stories but that’s about it. They are both awesome in their own rights. Both have awesome packaging and both perform well. The Revolution palette is not $30. It’s only $15.
In response to Evil Beans comment, at the time this review was posted you could only get Red Velvet in a limited edition kit that included two Makeup Revolution eyeshadow palettes, a face palette & a bronzer for $30 that was originally $50. Makeup Revolution did not sell Red Velvet separately. I even reached out to them prior to the review about this. Just in the past few weeks they decided to now let consumers purchase Red Velvet separately for $15. Which is awesome! While the palette itself certainly isn’t a dupe for Blood Sugar some of the colors do come close as per the review. Glad to find someone else who loves Makeup Revolution like I do! :)
