Makeup Revolution Palette Iconic 3

September 22, 2016

Hello lovelies, 

I've been meaning to buy one of Makeup Revolution's palettes for a while now and at £4 a palette it would have been silly not to get this one. This is a cheap alternative for the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette. If I owned the palette I would show you just how similar the colour are but that's one palette I don't own. 

So as you can see this palette contains 12 shades and comes with an applicator which is decent but if you're like me I have a favourite brush for applying my eyeshadow. The shades don't actually have names so I have given them some really rubbish ones purely so you can tell which are white because it's quite hard to see the lighter colours on my pale skin. Here are some swatches from right to left:

These are the shade on the right of the palette and these are the darker ones. You have a variety of brown shades - some of them are matte and some of them have a bit of sparkle to them. You also have that really intense black colour which can be built up if you are into darker colours.

These are the shades to the left of the palette. I had do make up some names because as you can see some of them are quite subtle against my pale skin - apologies! But they are still beautiful shades though. There's a lovely golden colour which can be built up and would look gorgeous as part of your autumn looks. There are also a variety of pinks which again - some are matte and some have sparkle. You also have the white colour at the bottom which I would use as a base for apply your eyeshadow on top.

All in all I'm very happy with this palette. The shades are all very similar to the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette so this could save you £33 if you bought this. They are all well pigmented, I just have a very light hand as I believe less is more. For £4 it was a bargain and I can see myself using all shades in the palette except for the black.

So all in all - A good purchase!
