Makeup Revolution are going to be making quite a few appearances on my blog over the next few weeks, I just love way too many of their products. Today I'm going to be showing you my new favourite palette, the Iconic Pro Palette*. Many say this is a dupe of the Lorac Pro, and although I don't have the Lorac Pro, I was dying to get my hands on it until this palette dropped through my letterbox.
The first thing I noticed was the packaging, it's black just like any other Makeup Revolution palette, but it's matte black. My favourite thing ever; I will own a matte black car one day. Another new addition to the palette is the new brush! I've always hated those double ended spongy brushes you get with every palette and never use because they're awful. Well this time Makeup Revolution have stepped up their game and included a double-ended synthetic brush; their 'PRO 1989 Double-ended Eyeshadow Brush', it's so fluffy and soft, perfect for applying and blending eyeshadow. Finally saying goodbye to spongy applicators!
The palette consists of 8 matte shades and 8 shimmer shades. Every single one is the same creamy formula with high pigmentation and easily blend able. At first I was skeptical about the matte shades, as cheaper palettes can have really chalky matte shades that are just pants, but I was happily surprised by this palette. Having a makeup obsession leads to owning many eyeshadow palettes, but I can't find anything quite like this one in my collection, but it's definitely one I'm glad to have. It's a very versatile palette, you can create anything from a deep dark smokey eye to a light natural barely there look. The lighter side of the palette has definitely been getting a lot of love from me, being my go to palette everyday now, but I can't wait to experiment with the darker, more colourful shades.
Are Makeup Revolution the Queen of Dupes?
