Make up Revolution | Iconic Elements Eyeshadow Palette.

Makeup Revolution are fast becoming one of my favourite brands, especially for eyeshadow palettes. I was kindly sent Makeup Revolution's Iconic Elements palatte*. At first, I wasn't too excited to try out this palette purely because the colours aren't what I usually go for. All of the shadows are lighter shades and are a matte finish (there is only one shimmer). I usually opt of darker colours and I love shimmery eyeshadows so I thought I wasn't going to get along with this particular palette! But then I tried it. Yes, I took back all my worries because I must say, I am so impressed!
This palette creates a beautiful more subtle eye look. I think these eyeshadows look perfect with a red or dark lipstick- I'm wearing my new favourite, MAC Dark Side ;) . I absolutely love the white eyeshadows as they create the perfect highlighters for the brow arch and inner eye. My favourite shades out of the palette are the brown ones as look amazing. It does take a few times to build up the shades to make them pigmented though which is the only downfall of this palette.If you want a simple yet stunning smokey eye that is perfect for daytime, this is the palette for you! 

I can't say that this palette from Makeup Revolution has converted me into a matte eyeshadow lover as I am a true glitter junkie. It's certainly worth having in your collection though as the shades are the most beautiful, wearable colours.  And for just £4 (!), where can you go wrong? Makeup Revolution are definitely an amazing brand and SO affordable too!

Do you love Matte or Shimmer shadows?

  26. I've been wanting to get this palette because of all the mattes. I personally own tooooo much shimmer, so adding mattes would be ideal.

  29. I totally adore MUR! I have the iconic 2 palette and it has saved my life. I was trying to convince myself to buy the urban dray naked palette but it is just SO expensive and this is definitely just as good in my opinion. Hmm, depends how I am feeling, I love both the shimmer and matte shades!
