Sadly, the Brighton Superdrug doesn’t have a huge Make Up Revolution counter, and even more sadly, that means it doesn’t have a huge range of their eye-shadow palettes. If you read my previous Make Up Revolution post, you’ll know that I couldn’t say enough good things about the Iconic Pallette, and I have been dying to get my hands on more for ages.
Luckily for me me and my sister headed up to London a few weekends ago, to visit the Lush Oxford Street store – you can read about my haul here – and the Superdrug there has a huge range. So fo course I had to get my hands on this palette as I have been lusting after it for way too long!
This palette contains 12 shimmer eye-shadows – which as I’m sure you can see are the squares and the 6 circles at the bottom are all mattes. I quite like the way this has been separated for quick and easy use. Although I doubt it would be likely you wouldn’t notice which were which.
The casing looks and feels a lot more sturdy than the one on the Iconic palette, but then I have had no breakage problems with that one either, so it obviously is stronger than it looks. However, this palette comes with a full size mirror in the lid, so that you can apply on the go if needed.
The thing I love the most about this palette, and the reason I picked these over the others is the mix of colours. They make it the ideal The 6 on the left hand side are perfect for an every day eye. I’ve been mostly using ‘Welcome to the PleasureDome’ to highlight, and with a blend of ‘Moving On’ and ‘Xenadau’. I’ve found the matte shades great as a base or just a super quick office look.
The 6 shimmers, on the right side of the palette are where the fun really starts! ‘You Really Can’t Afford Me’ (the dark green) is my current favourite, but ‘There Goes a Supernova’ and ‘Even When They Reach the Top’ are both really great for glamming up any eye.
As I said before, my favourite thing about this is the mix of colours. It’s the perfect palette to throw in an every day bag – especially if you plan to meet the girls for dinner or fancy after work drinks – you already have everything you need to spice up the every day look!
One thing I can never get over with Make Up Revolution’s products is how much quality they pack in for such a small price. I’ve been wearing this palette in loads of different ways over the last few weeks and the pigmentation of all of the eye-shadows are great. They are really soft, which means they blend well, have great staying power, and don’t leave glitter all over your face like some shimmer shadows do.
