Hi there! Today’s post is about my MakeUp Revolution Iconic 1 eye palette. It’s been sitting in my drawer for ages. But I’ve finally gotten around to use it. You may know that I’ve got lots of eyeshadows and palettes and I’m trying hard to empty products before I start to use new ones. But that doesn’t always work. And I’ve accepted that. 🙂
Now let’s have a look at the Iconic 1 palette. This is a beautiful nude/neutral palette. It contains 12 yeshadows – 10 shimmers and 2 mattes. It’s a great dupe for Urban Decay’s Naked Palette. But this isn’t news. I think everyone who knows MakeUp Revolution knows that many of their products are dupes for high end beauty products.
Let’s take a closer look at the eyeshadows. Shade 1 is a pale nude shimmery highlighter shade. Shade 2 is similar, but it’s more pinkish. Shade 3 is a pale beige / light brown. Shade 4 is a pale pinkish bronze. Shade 5 is a matte light brown. And shade 6 is a beautiful gold. All the shimmers (1, 2,4,6) are highly pigmented. The mattes (3,5) are ok – they’re not great, but they’re not bad either.
Shade 7 is a deep golden brown. Shade 8 is a warm brown. I love the intensity of shade 9 which is a beautiful vintage rose colour. Shade 10 is another brown. It’s lighter and (in my opinion) a bit ‘toastier’ than shade 8. Shade 11 is a shimmery dark grey. And shade 12 is a beautiful steel blue.
My favourite shades are 6, 7 and 9 – the two goldie ones and the vintage rose. But all the other shades are beautiful too. I think the Iconic 1 is a very pretty nude eye palette. And the quality is great. The eyeshadows last long and most of them are highly pigmented. The Iconic 1 palette is £4 only – a total steal!
