Makeup Revolution Iconic Pro 1 Palette | Review





Makeup Revolution Iconic Pro 1 Palette £6.99 -  It's no secret, especially in the blogging world, that Makeup Revolution are taking the country (and now World I think!) by storm, with their good quality dupes for so many much loved high end brands and their commitment to ever bringing out new things for us to lust after. I'll admit it took me a little while to get into the hype of Makeup Revolution, at the time I was working for Stila and it actually annoyed me a little to see such an obvious "dupe" of one of our most iconic eyeshadow products (that's for another day). But once I was in, I was well and truly hooked. It's still a bit of a moral grey area for me as they are so blatantly copying other products but if it works for them and they're enabling people to experience the higher end innovations for a fraction of the price, then who am I to stop them!
The first thing that I tried from the brand was the Highlighter Palette which is something that I drag out on every special occasion possible and next up I was desperate to try an eyeshadow palette. This Iconic Pro 1 has been dubbed as a dupe for the Lorac Pro, one that I constantly lust after but will never be able to get my mitts on! The mixture of mattes and shimmers are perfect for someone like me who wants an understated look but every now and then feels brave enough to add a touch of shimmer to my lids. It's also completely cool toned, another thing right up my street, I'm really into a cool, chic look on my eyelids with a slick of eyeliner teamed with a bold lip at the moment. This palette gives me multiple choices of different looks that I can put together and I feel like I could mix and match till I'm blue in the face. 
At just £6.99 it's safe to say that I am absolutely chuffed to pieces with this palette, I often use the palest of colours to give myself a lift in the very corners of my eyes due to my being so darn tired all of the time and the darkest of colours can be used as a smokey eyeliner underneath the eye too. The fact that it comes with a brush means that it would be ideal as a starter palette for someone who wants to experiment slightly without breaking the bank. It's a fab idea also if you're toying with get the more expensive versions but want to know just how much you'll use them first. Almost a try before you buy, or buy the most expensive of things anyway!
