Sophdoesnails is a british youtuber who teamed up with Revolution (Formerly Makeup Revolution) and brought us the incredibly popular Soph X Revolution eye shadow and highlighter palette’s last September. On Tuesday 5th June, Soph announced she had been working behind the scene’s with Revolution on a 2nd collaboration collection, this time bringing us ‘the older sister’ to the original eye shadow palette; Extra Spice is full of warmer tone’s and specifically designed with her audience in mind. With an already successful highlighter palette with every shade you could ever want and need, Soph has this time released 3 satin nude lipsticks; Syrup, Cake, and Fudge, alongside the Extra Spice eye shadow palette.
All of Soph’s products have the same distinct matte nude and mirror effect rose gold packaging, the original collection was all nude with the Rose Gold Soph X across the front, for Extra Spice Soph has switched it up with a Rose Gold Lid and Soph X written in nude. The lipsticks have the rose gold lid, nude base and a window in the bottom with the shade name’s on.
I already love Soph’s original eye shadow palette, so Extra Spice was the product I was most excited for from this collection! Inside are 18 matte and shimmer shades, some bright, some nudes, and some dark. The first thing I noticed is that there are 6 shade’s less than the original palette, however in the last palette the protector had all the shade name’s on it, something that was a little bit of a faff, with Extra Spice, Soph has added the shade name’s underneath all of the shadows, so although we are down 6 shade’s compared to the original palette it takes away the worry of losing the protector sheet, which is a substitute I can definitely cope with.
I feel like this palette was made with the original palette in mind, acting more of a complimentary expansion palette. With so many nude shade’s in the original palette, this one is much more on the colourful side, meaning there are only a handful of transition shade’s to work with if you were to use this palette solely (not that it can’t be done of course).
The shadows have a lot of pigment to them with a good colour payoff, they are soft to the touch if not a little on the chalky side leaving behind a little kickback in the pans, especially the matte’s, fortunately I’ve not noticed any drop down when applying to the eye’s. I love the variety of colour’s in the palette, you can definitely create a multitude of looks from a bright statement eye to a dark smokey eye, and even incorporate complimentary shade’s from the original palette.
The Soph X Revolution lipsticks are available in 3 shades: Syrup (Light/Medium Brown Nude) Cake (Pink Nude) Fudge (Dark Brown Nude), I decided to skip on Syrup as I prefer my lighter nude’s pink toned and darker nudes brown toned. For me Cake is the perfect my lips but better shade, and Fudge is a beautiful nude for when you want to ‘vamp’ up your look without digging out your autumnal berry shade’s.
All 3 lipsticks super creamy, glide on effortlessly without any dragging, and are highly pigmented. They are an on-trend satin finish formulation, perfect for all skin types, leaving lips with a slight shine that doesn’t dry out the lips and are comfortable to wear. The bullet is easy to use and apply without needing a lip liner, they aren’t transfer-proof, so you will definitely be seeing residue on your mugs and glasses, but nothing a quick powder room top-up can’t fix.
I love the entire 2.0 collection, I’ll definitely be getting a lot of use out of the lipsticks, I’ve already been wearing them everyday since my order arrived, and I’ve played with some of the shades from the Extra Spice Palette too. One of my favourite things about this whole collection is the fact that Soph has named so many of the shade’s after food, which I am living for, cheesecake…cookie dough…fudge… it’s hard not to feel hungry after doing your makeup with these products.
Have you purchased Soph’s new products? Which product(s) did you pick up? What’s your favourite product from the collection? Mine is definitely Fudge! Let me know in the comments below.
