I've been really impressed by Makeup Revolutions eyeshadows and I've especially been loving their iconic matte palette. So When this 32 color - all matte palette was released, I knew I had to try it. I've been testing it out on and off for a few weeks now.
Price: £8 or about DKK 80 or about $12 at Mekup Revolutions website
Packaging: This is some heavy duty, good quality packaging. I can easily travel with it and I'm not worried about it breaking. You get a giant mirror, wich I know a lot of you like. What I don't care so much about, is how identical it is to the other 32 shade palettes in their line. Ofcourse they have to look pretty identical, but they could at least have the different names on the front of the palette. I keep both my ultra palettes stored in the same place and I always have to look at the back of the palettes to see wich one it is. So that's a little annoying. Also not a fan of the plastic insert with the shade names. I know I will misplace it at some point.
I love the texture of these mattes. There is not a single miss in this palette. The quality is very consistent and pigmentation is great on all of them. The shadows are super silky smooth and they are easy to use. I do think I prefer the Iconic mattes a Little more, I find those to be completely fool proof and super easy to blend. These do need a little more blending, but it's really not that big of a deal.
I did find these a Little hard to swatch, but I had no problems with applying them on my eyes. I LOOOVE the colors in this palette. Especially the 12 colors in the middle of the palette (the rosey taupey Shades)
I do think that some of the Shades are quite similar, when swatched they all look different, but in some cases it's just a very slight difference in tone. So I think I would have liked to see a little more variation, maybe a white shadow and some even paler pinks and nudes. I'm very pale myself, so I can actually only use the 3 first Shades as highlights, and they turn out very subtle. So I would have liked to see something even lighter. And I would have loved to see a really warm toned teddy bear brown as well.
I would recommend using a good eyeshadow primer with these. I used Benefit stay don't stray as I really like how it performs, especially with matte shadows.
Overall I'm really pleased with this palette. Although I like the formula of the Iconic mattes better, I still love these eyeshadows. It's really impressive how good these mattes are. Considering the low Price, and the fact that you get 32 mattes I am impressed at the consistent quality. This is not just good for the Price, it would be amazing even if it was more expensive.
If you are looking for a good all matte eyeshadow palette I would definately suggest you check this out! You won't regret it.
