If there’s one palette you need, it’s this one! A full-face palette created by content creator Emily Noel, aka Beauty Broadcast.
Emily said: “The Needs is like the greatest hits of the brand…I’ve not seen Revolution do anything like this before and I thought it was something that was really called for… they’ve created so many great palettes, so let’s make the greatest hits from them all. This is what this is, in full face style.”
A multi-tasking palette full of positivity, featuring personal shade names that mean something to Emily: “I wanted every colour to have an identity.”
The Needs is encased in pale pink packaging with Emily’s signature in rose gold.

Paletku s sebou nosím ráno v tašce do bazénu. Rychle si s ní pak udělám jednoduchý makeup do kanceláře, všechno pěkně ladí a nemusím o tom moc přemýšlet. Stínů je tak akorát na to, aby se každý den makeup trochu odlišoval. Používám dohromady s Reneissance fixem na oči. *** I take this palette with me to swimming pool every morning. It is easy to create fresh office look. Everything fits together perfectly so I don´t have to think early at the morning. There is enough shades to make it slightly different every day. Usually I use it together with Reneissance makeup pen.
This palette is amazing! It was definitely worth the wait (shipping across the pond), and for the price it can't be beat! I've used it every day since getting it and I probably won't go back to my other face products for a while. Emily really knocked it out of the park with this palette. It's a must have for travel!
For The Needs palette Emily took inspiration from having to edit the "fluff" out of her pieces in her past job (she was a TV reporter & news anchor), by selecting her favourite 'must-have' shades from her favourite Revolution face palettes that have been featured on her YouTube channel over the past few years; Courage- medium brown matte bronzer/contour and Kindness - translucent powder (originally from the Ultra Contour palette), Gratitude - cream pearlesent highlight (originally from the Goddess blush palette) and Joy - peachy pink matte blush (originally from the Hot Spice blush palette). Then we also get six eyeshadows; Honesty - satin coral and Passion - blackened plum, with red shimmer (originally from the New-trals Vs Neutrals eyeshadow palette) and Peace - matte muted peach, Hope -matte fudge brown, Faith - matte terracotta and Love - matte cream (originally from the Light and Shade eyeshadow palette).
I've started collecting Revolution collaboration palettes, as imo the formula qualities seem to be a bit higher in them, in comparison to their regular lines that I've tried and this is no exception; in every other Revolution palette that I've reviewed so far there is at least one shade that I don't care for, but every shade here is of a great quality for this price-point. I love Revolution's highlighters, so it'll surprise no-one to learn that I love Gratitude - it doesn't rain glitter/shimmer and it lasts all day. Joy blush and Courage bronzer/contour are neutral tones, so both products will adapt to most skintones. Kindness is great for my dry skin; it sets, but doesn't totally mattify.
My only niggle is with the palette itself, as I'm really enjoying the actual products; I wish that the powder (Kindness) had a wider pan and hadn't been placed above the blackened plum and coral eyeshadows - I have picked up some shadow along with the powder when using a large powder brush a few times and have smeared it over my cheeks, so I mostly use it to set my concealer, rather then to set my foundation like I would like to do. Also; this is the kind of eye/face palette that begs for a sleek and compact case, so it can be tossed into a work/gym bag, weekend bag or suitcase for on-the-go looks and/or touch ups. I'd get to make this palette go further, if it had been smaller in design - something like Revolution's Beauty Legacy eye/face palette.
Everyone has their own idea of what is affordable, but I'd happily pay £10 for a good single blush, bronzer, highlight or powder, so getting all four at that price is fantastic value for me and overtakes the fact that four of the eyeshadow shades are basic "most palettes in existence already have dupes of these" types. I reach for this palette every other time I apply makeup for the powder and blush, then as the palette is open in front of me, I often go for the bronzer and/or highlighter, as well as doing my brows. If you don't own the original palettes that Emily selected the products from, then I think The Needs makes a great day-to-day "I need to get pretty & polished quickly" all-in-one palette, that's perfect for when we're in a rush, distracted, or just feeling a bit lazy
I really like this palette, especially for the price. I've used every single color. I like the highlight, you can build it how you like it. I like how there are matt colors I can use for my transition colors. The mirror is huge! I do however wish the ovals were a little bit bigger on the size. I recommend it to anyone.
This palette may not have a lot of shades, but it's so versatile I class it as a wonder palette. I can't vouch for medium or deep skin tones but all the shades are gorgeous on fair & light skin tones (tested on a relative) & blend effortlessly & go so well together.
If I'm in a hurry, I don't need to worry about a look I can just pull this out & have everything in one place which is so convenient. The shades are so flattering & this is awesome for travel too & saves a lot of space.
Love this so much, congratulations on an awesome collaboration Emily! 💜
