Makeup Revolution Iconic 3 Palette Review

Swatches 2

In the world of beauty, there is always one name that springs to mind when neutral eyeshadow palettes are mentioned. That name is Urban Decay. The Naked eyeshadow palettes have become a beauty blogger must-have over the past couple of years and are known for creating a natural looking smokey eye. Makeup Revolution (a fairly newish brand) have now created a palette that is the closest match to the Naked 3 that I have ever seen. I recently got my hands on it; keep reading for my review.

Makeup Revolution describe this product as a collectable eyeshadow palette with the perfect mix of pearl, shimmer and matte shades. I’ve been constantly reaching for this palette for weeks now and have been absolutely loving it. I’m not surprised that it’s been so popular, as it’s amazing. The buttery shades are all super blendable and pigmented (but can also be used subtly) and are great for everyday makeup looks as well as more dramatic night looks. The pinkish toned shades are all gorgeous, and are EXACTLY the same as the colours from the Naked 3 palette. There are 12 shades in the palette; 3 mattes and 9 shimmery/pearly shades, all of which complement each other beautifully.

This is a perfect dupe of the Naked 3 Palette, and at only £4.00 (£34.00 less than Naked 3) why wouldn’t you try it. I would definitely recommend it if your on a budget, as it’s such a great product for the price.

Favourite Lipstick Shades For Spring

Summer Lipsticks2

Swatches (Top to Bottom) – Kiss Pearl//Excite//Rose Mademoiselle

 Spring is finally here (although it doesn’t seem like it at the moment), and it’s time to start switching up our makeup, bringing more lighter and brighter shades into our look. Gone are the bold berry and dark plum Winter lip shades, neutrals and brights are about to become your new favourites. Take a look at some of my Spring preferred shades below.

Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipstick in Kiss Pearl – A very light pinky-nude shade that gives a shimmery effect to the lips. I don’t usually wear this shade alone (as it’s pretty light), but sometimes if I don’t want to go for a brighter shade I will just swipe this across my lips. It gives a soft pearlescent look to them, which complements light Spring makeup. I picked this shade up from the Maybelline pearl collection, it was around £7.00. See my full review of these here.

RiRi Hearts MAC Lipstick in Excite (Unsure if this is the right shade name) – Not entirely sure how to describe this shade, its got orange undertones and it seems to enhance, deepen and mimic your natural lip colour. Almost a reddish-coral shade. It’s a very soft and creamy lipstick, that glides onto the lips easily. When faded it leaves a gorgeous stain on the skin, which is something that I really like about it. It effortlessly makes your lips look perfected whilst wearing.

L’Oreal Rogue Caresse Lipstick in Rose Mademoiselle – This barbie pink shaded lipstick gives a nice light wash of colour to the lips, which can be built up to give a more intense look. It’s much more like a balm, rather than a lipstick though. It’s balm like qualities make it very moisturisng (it definitely stops lips from drying out) and great for the no-makeup, makeup look this Spring. It is only £7.99 from Boots at the moment.
