Ellis from www.ellistuesday.com guest blogs about Iconic 3!

We welcome Ellis from www.ellistuesday.com today to do a guest blog on our Makeup Revolution!

Now I feel like I may be the only beauty blogger who doesn’t own one of the infamous Urban Decay Naked palettes (it certainly does feel that way hehe). Don’t get me wrong, I’ve always fancied trying one of the Naked palettes and I often find myself gravitating towards the Urban Decay stand when I’m out shopping but I just can’t justify spending £37 on a palette. Even though I’ve been rather besotted with the Naked 3 palette in particular, I have a feeling I would probably only wear one or two of the shades on a daily basis, which would be a bit of waste really. If like me, you’re a little reluctant to jump on the Naked palette bandwagon because of the rather off putting price tag, then I may have found the perfect solution for you.

Makeup Revolution, a brand which has seemingly sprung up from nowhere, have recently released a wide array of palettes including this little beauty. Can anyone else see a striking resemblance between this palette, entitled the Iconic 3 and Urban Decay’s Naked 3? Well that’s because they are practically identical, I’m talking identical! The shades are even in the same order in both palettes so you can directly compare the two and I have to say, I’m incredibly impressed with the shades on offer from Makeup Revolution here.

As a big fan of neutral eye shadows I’ve found myself reaching for this side of the palette on a daily basis. I’m especially in love with the shimmery shades and I think the matte shadows are also pretty impressive for the price. They are as pigmented as the Urban Decay shadows in my opinion and overall they last well. My top tip to increase the longevity of these shadows; make sure to use an eye shadow primer. 

The fact that you get twelve spectacular shades for only £4 is a little mind-blowing, to say the least. Even if you only use a couple of the shades it still works out an absolute bargain. And what I must stress is that even though this palette is only £4 it doesn’t feel cheap when it comes to the eye shadows themselves. Okay so the packaging isn’t as ornate as the Urban Decay offering but it’s only packaging isn’t it? I can’t believe I’m actually saying that, considering the amount of times I’ve been swayed by pretty packaging in the past. Hehe. Whilst it may be a plastic palette I really don’t mind this and the clasp also works well to keep the palette shut too. 

I’ve seen so many great reviews of the rest of the Makeup Revolution range that I am rather excited to pick up a few more of their products. Makeup Revolution really does seem to be the brand to go to when it comes to dupes for some of the pricier make up brands. 

You can pick up the Makeup Revolution range at selected Superdrug stores, on the Superdrug website (link here) and on the Makeup Revolution website (link here). 

What do you think of this palette? Have you tried any of the Makeup Revolution products? If so, what products do you recommend trying out?

Here is a quick 6 step look we created using 4 shades.
Re-create the look –
Step 1 – prep your eyelid with our focus and fix eye primer original. This is a fantastic primer to help your look stay with you through out your day or night.
Step 2 – Using a large sized eye shadow brush apply shade 1 as a wash of colour all over your eye lid taking it up to the brow bone. This colour is a perfect matte shade to even out your eyelid ready for colour application.
Step 3 – Taking a small eye shadow brush apply shade 2, a beautiful rose pink shimmer to the inner part of your eyelid and blend out to the middle of the eye, we will apply this later also to the underneath of the eye. If you choose to you can do that now.
Step 4 – Next apply Shade 7 a lovely matte cappuccino hue to the eye lid starting from the outer edge in, taking a blending brush blend into the socket line looking straight ahead and to your mid eye point and blend until even and you have the desired effect. Build colour in stages and blend. Apply underneath the lashline to help create subtle definition.
Step 5 – Final shade applied was 11 a deep. This was applied in small amounts bit by bit over shade 7 and blended through to add depth to the middle and outer corner of the eyelid. Always blend in light circular motions this will help erase any harsh lines and the light to dark colours melt into each other. With a small blender brush continue the colour to the outer part of the lash line.
Step 6 – Using shade 2 apply using a small flat eye shadow brush or angled brush to the the inner corner and lash line of your eye to just before the mid point of your eye. Now from the other end apply in a similar way shade 11.
Final touches, apply mascara and the look is complete. Going out? Then vamp it up using shade 12 as step 5 and add more of shade 2 to the inner corners.
You will never go wrong with our Iconic palettes!
Iconic 3 palette is just £4!
