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.
MUA Iconic 2 3
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).

MakeUp Revolution Haul! Products Worth over £30 FOR FREE!

Hi there! Just a few weeks ago MakeUp Revolution did a sensational promotion. It was something like buy stuff worth £30 and get lots of products FOR FREE! Let me show you the goodies – which items I paid for and which ones came for free.
MUR Haul
The Fastlove and MakeUp Geek palettes were part of the free products bundle. The Fastlove palette is usually £5.99, the MakeUp Geek palette is £7.99. I’ve been ogling both palettes for a while, so it’s great they came for free. 🙂
MUR Haul
The next palettes are Unicorns Unite, Welcome To The Pleasuredome and Girl Panic. These palettes are normally £6, but MUR did a 3 for 2 promotion, so I paid £12 in total for these three palettes.

MUR HaulNow on to the smaller products. I bought 8 liphug lipsticks (red packaging) for £1.50 each – that’s £12 in total. Everything else in the pic to the right came for free! The freebies were 3 lip geek lipsticks, a purplish WOW lipgloss, a blush stick (‘Malibu’), an ultra velour lip lacquer, a single eyeshadow (black) and a small plastic container filled with loose pigments. I won’t be using all these products, but I can give some of them away!

I understand that the freebies are either not as popular as the bestsellers or that they’re going to be discontinued, but seriously, the products are good and some of them were on my wish list, so I won’t complain. 😀
