I’ve been working on my blog recently – updating key words, checking for broken links, revising old posts… something really boring but necessary at the same time. I deleted many of my oldest blog posts, because I’m not happy with them anymore. I know this probably affected my SEO ranking, but oh well, I prefer newer better quality posts, rather than old ones I’m not proud of. However, a lot of those deleted posts were reviews of products worth mentioning, so I decided to review them once again, and you know maybe my views changed a little bit? First on the list was this gorgeous Make Up Revolution Iconic 1 Palette so here we go.
As you can see, I’ve been using this palette quite a lot since its first post a few months back. It’s considered one of the best Naked dupes on the market, and although I don’t have the original one to compare it with, I’m impressed by the MUR palette on its own. It retails for £4, which is super affordable, especially for the amount of product you get.
There are 3 matte shades and the rest are shimmers, which is okay, but because of that, I don’t find myself reaching out for this palette every day (other palettes that I love for my daily make up you can find here and here).
However, the 3 matte shades we get from the palette are not bad – I usually use them to set up my eyelids or as transition shades. The shimmers are beautiful, especially the pinky ones, and they are the shades I play with more often. Unfortunately, there are maybe 3 or 4 shades which I’ve never ever used – as you can see from my photos – the two dark browns, the black and the blue.
Do I recommend this palette? Yes, it’s wonderful for its price. Personally I’d have loved it more if there were maybe 1-2 darker matte shades, but for people who love shimmers – that’s the one for you.
Let me know if you’ve tried this palette before and what you think of it ^^ Thank you for reading,
