When I uploaded my review on the Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Palette, I had a couple of comments regarding the price. It’s definitely on the higher end of the price scale which makes it unaffordable for most people. Even for me, but I decided to treat myself after a couple of crappy months. So I went on a little mission to find an affordable Norvina dupe. That’s when I found the Revolution Beauty Re-Loaded Palette in Visionary. It had very similar shades to the Norvina palette so I picked it up and had to do a couple of comparisons.
Norvina dupe? Let’s see …
So the Revolution Beauty Visionary Palette is pretty much a purple-themed palette. You have your neutrals and your transitions with the pops of pink and purples on the lower 2 rows. It was them particular shades which made me think ‘this could possibly be a pretty close Norvina dupe’. There were also a couple mattes which look very similar as well.
When it came to comparing the 2 palettes side by side, I suddenly realised that these weren’t exact matches, as I first thought. When I was looking at photos online, the imagery of the Visionary palette is a lot different to what you see in real life. But I was still determined to find a couple of good matches.
The shades from the Norvina palette which I found similar matches for are:
Wild Child – shimmer
Celestial – shimmer
Base – matte
Passion – matte
With the shade Wild Child, as you can see from the swatch, the pink shade in the Visionary palette is a lot pinker. Whilst Base, Celestial and Passion are pretty close. Heres a little diagram of the shades I used to compare.
Even though this palette isn’t an exact Norvina dupe, it could possibly be classed as one. Whilst some shades match up, others are similar. I would have preferred the pink shimmer shade from the Visionary palette to be in the Norvina palette, but that’s just my personal preference. If you are in the market for a cheap purple toned eyeshadow palette though, I highly recommend this one. For the affordable price tag of £4, it’s definitely a lot more purse friendly. Most of the shades are super pigmented, especially the shimmers. With some mattes, you do have to build them up slightly to get the colour you desire though. The packaging is a lot thinner, plus there’s no worrying over getting the outer packaging dirty!
