Dupe That | The Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette vs The Makeup Revolution Light & Shade Palette

*affiliate links used in post*
The Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette has become a favorite in my collection and today I am super excited to share with you a very close dupe from another favorite brand of mine, Makeup Revolution!
First lets get the deets out of the way. The Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette is $48 while the Makeup Revolution Light & Shade Paletteis $15. Both palettes feature the same amount of shades and as you can see, are super similar.

Packaging is of course, quite different. The Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette is packaged in a nicer cardboard case while the Makeup Revolution Light & Shade Palette is in a very light plastic case. Though the MR case feels a bit cheap, it doesn't look overly so, especially for the price.

As for the Makeup Revolution formula versus the soft and very pigmented KVD - I feel like the MR is a great palette. The formula is also very soft, they are not patchy at all, and a few of the shades actually have more pigmentation than the Kat Von D one. A few of the shades though, specifically two, are not exact, so don't expect and EXACT dupe. Then you have some shades that are the same, so much so that it's almost weird.

Overall, I think the Makeup Revolution Light & Shade Palette is definitely a more affordable dupe for the Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette. I have actually been using this palette a lot and I really enjoy it!

Something worth noting: on the outer packaging of this palette, there is a sticker that says this is a new Non-Talc formula. I own a few Makeup Revolution palettes and I do think this is my favorite.

Here you have the entire Makeup Revolution Light & Shade Palette. As you can see, it looks spectacular and unless someone told you that it's not the Kat Von D Palette, you probably would think that's what you're looking at. I actually shared the swatches alone and asked my followers which palette it was, and they guessed it was the Kat Von D.
But besides looking similar, the Makeup Revolution Light & Shade Palette performs really nice. I've watched a few YT videos where both palettes are used and the looks are pretty spot on. So yes, if you are looking for a more affordable version of the Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette, this is it. Or maybe you just need a new neutral palette. At this price, why not?
