♡ Make Up Revolution Iconic 3 Palette // Full Review & Swatches ♡

IMG_1608

Hi Everyone!

You may remember a few weeks back I had a little spree in superdrug and picked up the Make Up Revolution Iconic 3 palette (haul post here!), I had a few requests from you guys for a review/swatch post so here we are!

I’m not normally very into eye shadow but I want to try and use more eye shadow in my make up looks as I feel it can really add a whole other dimension to your look. I’ve been lusting after the Urban Decay NAKED palettes for so long now, but this seemed like a great budget alternative. So lets take a look at the shades in this palette.

swatch 1-6

1 – Creamy matte shade, perfect base colour or could make a good brow bone highlight

2 – Baby pink shimmer

3 – Dusty pink with a subtle shimmer

4 – Matte dusty pink (my favourite!) 

5 – Warm shimmery pink

6 – Rose gold shimmer

swatch 7-12

7 – Mauve matte shade, similar to 4 but slightly cooler in tone

8 – Mauve shimmer

9 – Dark mauve shimmer

10 – Bronze shimmer

11 – Matte pink toned brown

12 – Brown shimmer with pink undertones

It’s hard to know where to begin as I’m so impressed with this palette, especially considering it only costs £4, such a bargain. I definitely prefer the first half of the palette, but I’m quite reserved with eye shadow and darker shades do tend to scare me a little. With all the shades in the palette, with the exception of shade 1 – the colour pay off is incredible considering that this is a drugstore product.

My favourite shades in the palette are actually the mattes – I absolutely love shade 4 and 7, they go so well together and are extremely easy to blend for a novice like me (any tips would be greatly appreciated)! I also have a bit of a soft spot for shade 3, it complements 4 and 7 really well. I used these three shades as well as shade 1 to create a simple subtle smokey eye! I was debating including this photo as I am quite conscious that I am not the best at applying eye shadow, but I just want to show you how nice the colours look together!

Overall I am so pleased with this palette. It is ridiculously good value for money and the shadows are really easy to apply/blend. I would give it a solid 8.5/10, purely just because I wasn’t too keen on the darker shades in the palette. I know I am going to get so much use out of this palette and I can’t wait to pick up some more eye shadows from Make Up Revolution!

    1. I think I will probably have to treat myself to a Naked palette at some point as they are just too gorgeous, was thinking about getting the basics 2! I have heard lots about Lorac but never seen it in any stores here in the UK, which really sucks! Thanks for your comment 🙂 xo

  1. After seeing your haul post, I added this to my list of palettes to check out and possibly buy! I saw it at Ulta yesterday but I had 12 dollars and Maybelline color tattoos to get so I’m saving it for next time!

    1. Which color tattoos did you get? I’ve got 3 shades now and absolutely love them! I’m hoping to pick up the iconic 2 palette this weekend, on a bit of an eye shadow hype at the moment 🙂 xo

      1. I already had Bad to the Bronze and Tough Taupe, and I bought Barely Branded and Inked in Pink! I used Barely Branded as a base for my eyeshadow yesterday and I definitely liked it a lot, I can’t wait to try out Barely Branded!
