Makeup Revolution Redemption Palette Iconic 1 Review

Makeup Revolution Redemption Palette Iconic 1 Review
When I placed a Makeup Revolution order I knew I had to try out some of their eyeshadow palettes. I went for the Iconic Palettes as they are dupes for the Naked Palettes by Urban Decay. I have the MUA versions and I had hit pan on a few of the shades in my Undressed palette so I thought I would try the Iconic 1 to see how it compares. Although I don’t own any of the Naked palettes I think the first one would be my favourite as the shades in that palette seem to suit me more.

Makeup Revolution was launched last year and I have heard nothing but good things about them. They are the new MUA although they are not connected there are similarities in the packaging and the prices. This palette only cost me £4 which is an absolute steal for 12 eyeshadows. The MUA palettes have the eyeshadows in a circular pan whereas the Makeup Revolution palettes have put them in rectangles which I think makes them look more high end. The packaging is a simple black case with a clear bit so you can see the eyeshadows inside. Although the packaging is simple I think it feels very sturdy and I would take this with me when I travel.

All of the shades are really soft and easy to blend. The shadows are pigmented and even the matte shades are pretty impressive. Recently I have been experimenting with eyeshadow a lot more so I have used pretty much every shade in the palette whereas before I mainly only ever used the first 6 shades. My favourite shades in the palette are shades 2,4,5,6,9 and 11.  I like that you can create so many different looks with this palette, you can be very simple and just one colour all over your lid or you can be a bit more creative. I have been enjoying using shade 11 as a liner and I find that it works really well. I never used to bother using a primer however I have been using one recently and I can see the difference that it makes to the shadows but you can wear these without a primer and they are still very pigmented.

Overall I am really pleased with this palette and I find myself reaching for it on a daily basis. I also have the Iconic 2 and 3 palettes to try out as well and I can’t wait to start experimenting with them. I might start sharing some of the looks that I do with you.

Do you have any Makeup Revolution recommendations?
