To continue where I left off, here is the review for Makeup Revolution Iconic Pro 2. I don’t know why I am getting so much obsessed with eye shadow palettes these days, if I have to guess I would say there is something about having lots of options in a place that makes me feel very good… :) and that, may be the reason, why I collect so many of them.. :D
Let’s start with the review now….
Makeup Revolution is renowned for having an amazing selection of eye palettes without making a crater in your pocket and the Iconic Pro 2 is no different.
I got it on sale from flipkart at a price of 1170(INR)
This palette comes in a rose gold box and the palette itself is matte black with letters in rose gold. Inside, there's a full mirror and a plastic with the shade names on it. It comes with a double ended brush, crease on one end and flat eye shadow brush on the other. It does contains a great array of natural tones in matte and shimmer, apart from the usual neutral shades – beige, gold, taupe, copper, earthy brown, steel grey – it also has touches of some very wearable color, like deep mauve, deep blue and olive green.
These shades are quite beautiful, the top row is all mattes while the bottom row is all shimmers. There are 16 shades in all, and there's such a great variety...lots of neutrals and smoky shades to play with. The top row of matte shades are very pigmented and almost has no fall out.
The bottom row of shimmery shades has more fallout than the mattes. Usually, shimmers are more buttery but these have a bit chalky feeling top layer, probably due to tiny glitter particles rising to the top. But once you use the top layer, they will become much more buttery and easy to work with. So I must say, the formula is pretty good, well pigmented with great blending power.
These shades can be stand up to 6 to 7 hours with an eye shadow base. Even without primer or base, it can go up to 4 hours. Let me tell you I have tested this on my very oily eye lids.
Overall it’s an amazing palette with very decent pigmentation in matte as well as shimmer shades, which lets you can create both a day and a night look, from soft to Smokey eyes.
So that’s all my dolls, just grab it and play with these beautiful shades… :)
