Beauty: Make Up Revolution Iconic 2 Palette

Make Up Revolution Iconic 2 Palette and make up look:

As a fan of the naked palettes I was a bit skeptical about buying this as it's a dupe of the Naked 2 palette. However it was less than £4 in Superdrug so I bought it anyway.
I tried a make up look using a few of the colours that I would have used in the Naked 2 palette - I tried to create a natural look but the colours weren't as pigmented as I would have liked. Some people have told me that I should have used a primer underneath as this makes the colour bolder, but I don't generally use eyeshadow primer.

Despite all of that, I was pleasantly surprised. I do like the palette and think that the colours are nice and neutral. They literally are the same colours as the Naked 2 palette (I've compared them both) but I don't know if I'd buy the other palettes by Make Up Revolution.

I love how easy these powders are to blend though. They are easy to pick up on the brush and blend through, which is why I like it so much. They also last all day despite not being very pigmented. I find that if you just apply a mother layer of eyeshadow, then the colour is bolder.

I've found myself wearing eyeshadow a lot more throughout last month, which isn't what I usually do. I'd say if you're a bit on the bench line about picking up a Naked palette, to invest in one of these instead as you can get a feel of what the colours are like and how you would use them before forking out loads of money.

At less than £4 this palette is practically a steal!

I'm going to try other looks using this palette. I'll do this in video form and upload them onto my YouTube channel so stay tuned for them.

Have you tried Make Up Revolution before? Do you like the Naked palettes?

  1. I have the other Iconic palette (Iconic 1 I guess?!) and I LOVE it - the colours are a little darker and there are more earthy tones which suits my style, and they're really pigmented - much more so than I'd expected. I definitely recommend trying that one too!

  2. I have a lot of makeup revolution palettes and I love them!
