Another budget beauty product today that Jake popped in my stocking for Christmas and I was super excited to try. Some are saying it’s a really good dupe for the Naked palettes and I can see why as the shades are quite similar. As this palette is £4 you’re rescuing your bank balance and saving a whopping £35.50. Of course it doesn’t have the famous Urban Decay stamp on it but with all the amazing quality high street brands that are churning out similar products, is the name necessary?
Makeup Revolution have been really upping their game recently, especially with the release of their new concealer that’s apparently meant to rival the famous Tarte Shape Tape. I haven’t yet seen a bad word about this concealer so I am WAY too excited to try it. The Iconic 3 palette was also Superdrugs 5th best selling beauty product of 2017 so they really are a high street brand that are smashing it right now.
In my opinion, this palette holds the perfect shades for every day warm-toned looks as it contains an array of pinks, golds, bronzes and a few darker shades to smoke these out with. The ratio of mattes to shimmers is perfect for me personally as I’m more of a shimmer wearer. The mattes in the palette are great transition shadows so it’s definitely a palette you wouldn’t have to lug any additional products around with for an eye look.
I’m also incredibly impressed with the pigmentation of this. Much like the Ultra Pro Glow Highlighting Palette I recently reviewed here, it blends really beautifully and easily onto the skin and with other shades. I would actually go as far as saying I actually think I prefer using this to my Naked palettes as the colour payoff packs a bit more of a punch with less product. I’d highly recommend picking up this palette whether you’re an amateur or an expert, especially with a price tag like that! I think these palettes would be really great for freelance MUAs who can’t afford to spend a fortune on high-end palettes for their kit.
