Makeup Revolution Iconic 1 Palette

So it would be right if Makeup Rev weren't coming out with stunning palettes, there would have to be  something wrong with the world. They have once again, come out with a completly affordable, well pigmented product that you can create so many looks from.

Makeup Revolution where kind enough to send me this pretty palette the other week and I could not wait until I could create a look using it. This is actually one of the first palettes that comes with a double ended brush too and yet the whole palette is still £6.99?! How they do it, I will never know! So I just wanted to touch on the brush as this is one of the first Makeup Rev brushes i've ever used before. The brush has a thin fluffy end to get a really blended look in the crease and a compact flat end to pack the shadow on the lid. I will say that I think that the fluffier end is perfect for a really defined crease but I think the flat end has maybe a little too many bristles packed into it as I find it to apply the product a little patchy unless you build it up. It's defnitly nice to see an actual brush in a palette instead of a stupid foam applicator!
I'm enjoying the packaging on this palette as the top of the palette is a matte finish which I love. I really prefer matte packaging over shiny as then you can see marks etc when you've been using them.
Now I have heard that this is a dupe for the Lorac Pro 1 but unfortunatly, I can't comment as I dont have that palette untill I go to Florida in 2 months time. *sobs*. I am loving this palette as its definitly a day to night palette which is one of my favourite colour ranges. There is a row of matte shadows on the top and a row of shimmers on the bottom along going from light to dark so you can create a soft subtle day look or glam it up with a touch more shimmer and a darker shade.

I created the look below using Fade, Drama, Afflicted blended in the crease and for depth then Getter and Breathe for a shimmer on the lids and Dawn in the corner for a highlight. Of course my favourite liner as well, the Awesome Double Flick Liquid Liner. I'm so excited to be back casting looks, you can expect a lot more in the next few weeks. I feel like my mojo is back!

Have you purchased this palette? Let me know your thoughts!


  1. I haven't got this palette but the shades look absolutely amazing! I look forward to seeing how close it is to the Lorac Pro Palette!
