Hello everyone! Today I am finally reviewing a brand that has caused a stir amongst beauty bloggers and fanatics. Of course I am talking about the infamous Makeup Revolution! I thought I would start out with a product that has gained a lot of attention - the Iconic 3 palette.
Makeup Revolution - Iconic 3
Just taking a look at the palette you can see that the colour selection is just beautiful. Many have noted that the palette is a fantastic, affordable dupe for the Naked 3 palette. The packaging is very sleek considering its small price of £4. You can check out the Iconic 3 palette on the Makeup Revolution website here. Makeup Revolution are also available through Superdrug too!
Here is a close up of the shades you receive. For the price of the palette you receive a generous amount. I love the idea of each colour being in a bar type shape rather than the typical circle pan of product you usually get. It just makes the palette look that little bit better! In the palette there are 3 matte shades and 9 shimmery shades. The palette also comes with a double ended eyeshadow brush. With that being said lets take a look at swatches of the shadows!
The shadows themselves don't have names so I will simply go in order! The first four shades are definitely the more subtle of the bunch. I have actually been using these shades as subtle highlights and to add a subtle touch of sparkle on my lid for work days. The first shade makes a perfect highlight, particularly for under the eyebrow. The next two are lovely golden skin tone shades that add that pop of glamour. I often use these two as an inner lid highlight for that extra sparkle to the eye. The fourth colour is a lovely flush of pink. The first and fourth shade are both matte.
Moving on to the net four shades! The fifth shade is a lovely shimmery taupe/bronze colour. The sixth shade is the prettiest golden shimmer I have seen in a palette so affordable! The seventh shade is the next matte shade in the palette; a matte brown. The eight shade is a lovely shimmery brown which works fantastically with the previous matte brown.
The last four shades are absolutely stunning and my personal favourite. The ninth shade in the palette is an even darker shimmery brown. Again this works perfectly with the previous two shades. The tenth shade is a darker golden shimmer with a hint of brown reflexes. Moving on to the eleventh shade we get a beautiful shimmery grey. Lastly we have the twelfth shade which is my favourite of the whole palette. The final shade is the most gorgeous shimmery black which has red shimmer added. Absolutely gorgeous.
So there you have it! I totally recommend this palette for any of you that may be umming and ahhhing about if you should join the hype and buy it. Have you tried the Iconic 3 palette? What are your favourite shades? Let me know in the comments!
