Naked 2 Dupe – MakeUp Revolution Redemption Palette Iconic 2

Hi there! Last month I reviewed MakeUp Revolution’s Iconic 1 palette. And now I’ve finally gotten around to swatch MakeUp Revolution Iconic 2 palette. I’m sure everyone knows MUR’s Iconic 2 is a dupe for Urban Decay’s Naked 2 palette, so I’m not going to waffle about the dupe factor. 😉 Instead, let’s get to the actual Iconic 2 palette.
MUA Iconic 2
The first shade is a pale beige with a matte finish. Shade 2 is a metallic gold. Shade 3 is a pearly pale beige. Shade 4 is a metallic copper. Shade 5 is a matte medium brown. And shade 6 is a shimmery golden brown. In terms of pigmentation the matte shades (1 and 5) aren’t great, but they’re OK. The other shades (2, 3, 4, 6) are nicely pigmented.

Shade 7 is a shimmery taupe, and shade 8 is a shimmery medium grey. Shade 9 is a shimmery light grey, and shade 10 is a pale rosey copper. Shade 11 is a purplish-tinted dark brown with a satin finish. And shade 12 is a matte black. Shades 7, 8, 9 and 10 are highly pigmented, shade 11 and 12 are so-so, but I can make them work if I carefully dab them on with a fluffy eyeshadow brush.
MUA Iconic 2 4
My favourite shades are 2, 4, 6 and 10 – the warm shimmers. But I like and use all the other shades too. I think the Iconic 2 is a good eye palette at a great price. The MakeUp Revolution Iconic 2 palette sets you back £4 only (Superdrug, MUR web site).
