Revolution Redemption Palette Iconic 1 Review & Swatches

I Brough this in my Revolution Haul. I’ve come to be a big fan as of late of the cheaper drugstore brands. I’ve never been one for high end products because I can never justify spending that much on one product when I can do a haul with a brand like this and get a whole bunch of things. If you haven’t checked out Revolution yet I suggest you do.

Review
This is a near exact dupe of the Urban Decay Naked 1 palette which I’ve always wanted to try. This palette has a perfect mix of pearl, shimmer and matte shades with great colour with alot of the shades. The packaging is quite plain, but what do you expect for £4. I’d rather them save in packaging and continue to deliver quality products.

The first couple of shades aren’t very pigmented but they are quite neutral tones which can be good for a base or highlighting. Whereas the last few are impressively pigmented. A nice mixture of shimmers and matte shades.

These swatches have excellent pigmentation and have a beautiful shimmer to them.

This photo was taken after a full day at work. It’s been in place for 12 hours and hasn’t changed much from when I first applied it. I did take a picture in the morning but because it was 6am the lighting was really bad which I’m disappointed with because I’d like to post a just applied photo to compare.

Conclusion
I’m so happy with this palette. It’s such a bargain at £4. If you don’t want to pay full price for the Urban Decay palettes I would highly recommend the Revolution dupes. I’ve had no fall out from the eyeshadow and it’s stayed in place all day. I’m so looking forward to trying out other looks with this palette.

This palette is available at Superdrug here.

Revolution Haul

Following my beauty swap with Reify, i found out how awesome some of the cheaper make up brands that are only available in the UK really are! I guess I was a bit of an upper scale drugstore product junkie… Always buying Max Factor, Rimmel, Maybelline etc.. But I’m so glad I’ve discovered Revolution!

Redemption Palette Iconic

I’m so amazed that this palette is £4. Such a bargain! I’ve seen bloggers post about this palette and I’ve been meaning to get it but I always seem to just walk past these make up stands, not anymore though! This is a nude palette with matte and the rest made up of shimmers. It has 12 shades that are totally wearable.

The colour pay off, especially the last lot, is pretty awesome. The first picture isn’t too impressive, but you always get those sort of shades being quite limited. And for £4 a palette, I’m not really going to complain! Full review is available here.

Matte Lipsticks Nude

image

This lipstick was just £1 which I was amazed at… I’m a bit obsessed with matte Lipsticks at the moment. I was a bit annoyed at my local superdrug because there weren’t any samples to try, so I had to just try and guess if it was going to be a good colour. Although at the bottom it shows what shade it is, I’d of like to have tried it out first.

Powder Blush

This is such a lovely shade if pink. Such a suttle colour which is totally me. I couldn’t find this shade on the superdrug website, but it’s called treat if you want to pick it up in store. This blush was an amazing £1

Amazing Curve Mascara

I don’t think I’ve ever had a mascara with a curve like this wand has. I’m really excited to see how it turns out. At just £2 it seems like a steal, just depends how it turns out!

I got all this for just £8! I can understand now why this stand is always mostly empty! Just got to test them out now! Reviews will be available shortly.
