Makeup Revolution Iconic 3 eye shadow palette

The past year or so I have been wearing a lot of gold and neutral eye shadows. I mainly have 2 eye shadow palettes to thank for this, Makeup Revolution's Salvation palette and their Iconic 3 palette!

Many call the Iconic 3 a dupe for the Urban Decay naked 3 palette which retails at £38.00 compared to the Iconic 3's price of just £4.00! The eye shadow shades do look very similar, so the Iconic 3 is great for those with a lower budget and is available online and in Superdrug stores.

I love how versatile this palette is, I have used every colour to create different looks. It is a bargain at £4.00 for 12 shades and they last for a good few hours, but not all day. The main downside is the packaging, it gets the job done but it does feel a little flimsy, but for the price, what can you expect! The colours blend together really nicely and are highly pigmented. Below are some swatches of the Iconic 3 palette, taken under natural light.

I really cannot recommend this palette enough, it is such good value for money and you can create many looks! Have you tried Makeup Revolution?
