Makeup Revolution has been all over the blogging world throughout the past few months. And as I can’t resist a good quality, affordable brand, I knew I just had to try out some of their products! I had my eye on the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette ever since it came out, however I couldn’t justify spending £38 on yet another palette, especially as I wasn’t 100% sure that the shades would suit me. And that’s where the Makeup Revolution Iconic 3 palette stepped in, a well-known dupe for the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette.
At just £4 for 12 eyeshadows, the Makeup Revolution Iconic 3 palette is £34 cheaper than the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette. It contains the same 12 shades of eyeshadow, including a good mixture of mattes, pearl and shimmer shades. From left to right, the palettes includes a matte cream shade, a shimmery pale pink, a pearly pink, a matte pink/beige, a shimmery rose gold, a copper shade (my favourite), a matte medium brown, a shimmery light brown, a shimmery dark brown/gold, a deep taupe, a dark grey/taupe , and a black shade with red shimmer (which is gorgeous!).
As for the quality, I was very impressed, especially when taking into consideration that the palette costs just £4! I would say that the pearl/shimmery shades are slightly more pigmented than the matte shades, however even the matte shades are not bad at all!
The shades in this palette are so versatile, and I have found myself reaching for this palette both when creating natural daytime looks, as well as more smokey evening looks. The copper shade in particular is absolutely gorgeous, very pigmented and blends like a dream.

After trying out the Makeup Revolution Iconic 3 palette, would I now purchase the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette? Probably not! I am happy with the quality of the shades in this palette, and will most definitely repurchase this once I start to hit pan on some of my favourite shades.
