why i reordered the emily edit (the needs) palette
There are some makeup items in my collection that get used more than others. My most used? The Needs palette from The Emily Edit collection. For those of you who missed the initial launch, Emily Eddington aka Emily Noel on YouTube teamed up with Revolution at the end of 2018. There were two items in the collaboration: The Needs palette and The Wants palette. The Needs was all about those everyday essentials where The Wants palette was loaded with lots of colourful eyeshadows. (Take a peek at that palette and a full review here.) All in all, it was a fabulous selection of products. Ones that I continue to go back to time and time again. Though I have not been buying new makeup products lately and been dedicated to using more of what is in my collection....it was time for a re-stock. As I mentioned, my original The Needs palette has been around since 2018 and I have used it almost every single day. So, I went on the Revolution Makeup website and ordered two more palettes. They were super affordable and on sale as well, so with shipping, both palettes cost a mere $25 CDN.
Not only is this palette easy on the wallet but it is an absolute essential in my makeup collection. (You can take a look inside the palette and see swatches in my original The Needs review post.) There is a good reason for this. It really does cover all of those beauty needs. This palette has a bronzer that works wonderfully with my skin tone, a blush that is absolutely stunning and a highlight that is nice and natural. Then there is a powder to set your face and six basic eyeshadow shades. There are browns, shades of cream and beige, a warm red, and a dark shimmery almost purple toned colour. It is possible to create a lot of wonderful makeup looks. This is also really essential for travel. And in fact, it has accompanied me on every single getaway I've taken since it was added to my makeup collection. Whether it was a short weekend trip or a two week long adventure...The Needs really is a need. It has a blush, bronzer, highlight, powder, and six eyeshadow shades. Perfection.
So...why two new palettes? Because I love this so much. I cannot imagine a time when this is not a part of my everyday makeup routine. My original The Needs palette has also seen better days. Not only am I starting to hit pan on several items but my packaging is destroyed. I might have dropped my palette once, twice, or at least a dozen times. (I am a dropper. I literally drop everything. Thank goodness for sturdy packaging.) While the packaging survived a good handful of drops, eventually, the upper portion and lower portion no longer stayed together - and I started using a large hair elastic to hold it in place.
Thankfully, now there is a fresh new The Needs palette for me to use and enjoy. As well as a backup to ensure my beloved beauty item remains in my collection for a long time to come. If you want to see this particular palette in action, there is a demo + review video up on my YouTube channel featuring this extra special makeup release. It feels like a sigh of relief to have makeup that I know works well for me. As much as new releases are exciting...sometimes those old faithful products are the ones that matter most. All I can say is, thank goodness for The Needs palette!
