So, the Revolutioneers have been at it again – creating purse-friendly palettes that create a myriad of looks. For the new Makeup Revolution Iconic Pro Palettes, it’s a more luxurious formula and a much, much better brush. I’ve started back to front because the image shown is Makeup Revolution Iconic Pro Palette 2.
This swatch is the top row – all matte shades. I love the nude shades especially in this and I can tell a difference in the softness of the matte formula. To be honest, I can’t tell that much of a difference in the sheens below.
Although I haven’t really caught the sheen here, they stop short of sparkle but do give a beam of light which I really like – the darker shades, as you can see, need a bit more blending. I always use a one finger swipe to swatch; sometimes that means you don’t quite get the full-on effect but I’m more interested in seeing what a product does straight away. I’d wear the khaki shade in a heartbeat myself.
So, here’s Makeup Revolution Iconic Pro Palette 1, again with the double-ended eye brush.
The swatches above are from the top row (I heard a PR call them ‘smears’ today – no, no, no!) and once again, they’re creamy mattes.
And, here are the sheens. My personal preference is always for sheens – I very rarely use mattes – but that makes me fussy about the ‘right’ sheen. These are spot on because they’re not glittery, but give lids a gorgeous glimmer that’s really pretty.
The new double ended brushes are vastly better than the old ones – and they’re made from synthetic hair.
The Makeup Revolution Iconic Pro Palettes hit the Makeup Revolution store tomorrow (Thursday 5th Feb) and they’re £6.99 each.
