The palette is called Acid Brights and comes in packaging similar to MUA. The colors are mainly neon mattes with some non neon shimmery colors mixed in. The colors come in rectangle shaped pans all next to each other. The palette also comes with one of those applicators. I never use them as I like to use my brushes. I'm not fussed on the rectangle design of the pans, circular pans like Sleek and MUA work much better.
This palette was £4, so not expensive. I thought I would try this out as I love anything super bright, plus I like trying out new brands.
Some of the colors glow under a blacklight. It's only the neon colors though. So if like me you love uv activated colors, give this palette a go.
The Acid Brights Palette looks exactly like Sleek's Acid Palette. The colors even come in the same order. I love my Acid Palette so I was interested to see if it was a dupe not only by colors but by quality too. The packaging may not be a dupe but the colors look like they are.

One thing I did notice about the Acid Brights is that the colors are quite powdery and the pigment isn't that great. It does take a bit of work to build the colors up really intense and they don't blend that easy either especially the matte colors. The shimmery ones worked a bit better, but still needed work. The best colors in the palette were the neon pink, matte purple and matte pink. While the worst ones were the neon yellow, white and black.
Compared to Sleek's Acid, this one is not a dupe quality wise. Sleek's is a much superior product, much more pigmented and the colors blend much easier. The black in the Sleek palette is more pigmented too. Makeup Revolution's version didn't crease though or fade, once the colors were on they stayed on. For £4 more I would definitely buy Sleek's Acid Palette instead of this one.
I've heard about a number of bloggers saying how this is a dupe for Urban Decay's Electric Palette. I have that palette and it definitely isn't a dupe for it, quality wise. The colors may look similar but that is where it ends. UD's palette is easy to blend and very pigmented. This one from Makeup Revolution is not.
Now heres some of the looks I did with this palette.
My favorites here are the uv activated colors. The blacklight turns the color into something completely different.
