Product Review: Makeup Revolution Iconic 2 Eyeshadow Palette

Last week I went to Superdrug to buy presents and I noticed this palette by Makeup Revolution. I'm not exactly familiar with their products so when buying this I didn't really know what to expect although considering that the price of the palette was £4 I didn't expect amazing pigmentation/quality.

Let's start with the packaging, it is quite flimsy and does not come with a mirror but there is quite a bit of each color within the palette. For the first four colors I wouldn't say the pigmentation is mind-blowing but it isn't disappointing either, the rest of the colors however are absolutely lovely and I had not trouble with the pigmentation. The black especially picked up very well. I would say when you use primer with these eye shadows they last up to 6-7 hours but without it they last at least 3 hours. 

I think for the price of this palette it doesn't disappoint and it is certainly a palette which contains versatile shades to create a variety of looks! In addition to this I have noticed this palette bears a striking resemblance to the Naked 2 Palette which I am sure many bloggers have already picked up on. So if you are looking for a dupe to that palette or you just can't bring yourself to pay £37 for the palette then the Iconic 2 Palette is definitely an option. In addition to this I think this would be a great Christmas present for someone who is just getting into makeup or someone who likes Urban Decay eye shadows. 

Thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day! If you have any requests for reviews, blog posts etc... Then please do comment as I would be more than happy to help you.
