Revolution Beauty X Emily Noel 'The Needs Palette' (Review and Swatches)

Revolution Beauty X Emily Noel Needs Palette (Review and Swatches)

Emily Noel is one of the first Youtubers that I watched when I was a very tired mom, going back to work and really in need to self care. I found the beauty community when I needed to start taking care of myself as well as my family. She has remained one of the Youtubers that I watch because she's so honest, and sincere. You can hear her passion for makeup in her reviews. When her collaboration with Revolution Beauty was announced, I was so excited because I truly love the brand and thought the two collaborating would be a great fit. She released two palette, "The Wants" and "The Needs." Today, I'm going to talk about "The Needs."

I love the idea of this palette, it's the one palette that you can grab; create a quick look and be out the door. It the companion palette that you need when you are missing something and don't want to look around for another palette, you can grab this one and it will have that staple piece that you need. Emily did mention that this palette includes her favorite shades from other existing Revolution palettes.

Face Products:

This palette has a bronzer, blush, highlighter and a setting powder. The setting powder can work under my eyes or to set my eyeshadow. This is great to have, especially in the larger pan size. I was surprised I liked the bronzer as much as I did. It looks dark in the pan, and I'm fair skinned but it blends so nicely into the skin. The blush is perfect, and I use it quite often in the Hot Spice palette as well. Gratitude is a subtle highlight that can be built up or worn more subtle. I like to wear it subtle and then use another highlight to target the area I want built up more. I wear it similar to an Hour Glass Ambiant Lighting powder. You can also spray Gratitude before applying it and that will intensify it as well.


This palette consists of 6 eyeshadows, Passion is the only one that is not fully matte. I do love the shade selection but wish there was one shimmer shade. I do not wear all matte eyeshadow looks but I can use the highlighter to give me some shimmer on the lid. I use those shades as staple shades, and will pull in another palette for the shimmer. Again, these shades are existing shades and I have no issues with the blending or lasting power.

Overall, I really love this palette and can see myself keeping it on my vanity for those quick mornings. It has every thing I need for a look. If a palette is missing something that I need, this palette will have what I need. I also picked up "The Wants" palette and will be reviewing that one as well.

  1. Funny how so many of us turned to You Tube in times of being a new and tired mom in desperate need of some adult conversation, even if it was us just listening.

  2. It was the same for me, I started binge watching beauty channels while being a stay at home mum to a new baby! I never really watched Emily Noel though.
