Honest Review of Makeup Revolution Palettes


This is the first in my 'honest review' series of posts. I have always been fully honest when reviewing products but I will be going into a lot more detail in this series about the pros and cons and covering all the bases needed to fully disclose my opinions about a product that I have tried. So, lets begin. The two palettes from Makeup Revolution that I am reviewing here are Redemption Palettes Iconic 1 (the open palette pictured) and 3 (the one behind it). They have been dubbed amazing dupes for the Urban Decay Naked palettes. 

How long have I been using these for? 

-I don't use these everyday but I have owned these for about 3 months. 

What are the best features of these palettes? 

-They are very pigmented, I really mean it, for only £4 each it is crazy how good the colour payoff is. 
-The second is the price, they are only £4 each and they have a lot of product in each section so it will take a while for them to run out. 
-The colours are really great and varied in each palette, really there is only need for one of these palettes, I was being a bit greedy. 

What are not-so-good features of these palettes?

-Well, sometimes when I'm wearing contact lenses it makes them spin around a bit which is really weird it is probably my contact lenses but because they are pigmented I don't need to put much on. 
But if you are a contact lens wearer take that with a pinch of salt because each lens is made of a different material. 
-Because they are inexpensive they are made of cheaper ingredients, but this does not compromise colour payoff. 

Overall rating? 7/10

The ingredients and contact lens problems mean that I will have to knock down a few points however, the colour payoff, price and colour choice mean that I would definitely repurchase so I would give these a 7/10. You won't get better palettes for the price!

Any questions? Anything I haven't covered about these palettes ask in the comments below! I will get back to you within a day or two!

    1. Yeah I know its crazy, I guess they use cheaper ingredients, I would never suggest its better than Naked but definitely a budget option!!

  3. I love these palettes, my only issue with them is that I hate foam applicators!
    Makeup Revolution is such great value for money :)

    1. Yeah I don't use the foam applicators either I have a good eyeshadow brushes!

  4. I just ordered these online, I am so excited to try them out :) I'm a contact lens wearer though so it's really good to know that I need to be careful!

    1. Yes it is important to be careful but you can still wear the eyeshadow because it stays put very well! Aw yey, thanks for following, I'm sure il see you here soon then :) xx
