I’ve been trying out a few new releases from Makeup Revolution, and I have to say, this palette is definitely my favourite yet!
The Iconic PRO 2 Eyeshadow Palette comes in a new matte finish casing (still the same size as before but just with matte finish instead of gloss) but the most exciting thing about this palette is that it comes with a decent ‘proper’ double ended brush, rather than a sponge tipped applicator. They’ve given it the rather fancy name of the PRO 1989 Double-ended Eyeshadow Brush. Unfortunately my photos didnt come out too well of the brush, but I can tell you one end has a flat brush and the other end has a round brush and it’s made of synthetic hair. I’m really impressed with this upgrade!
The Iconic PRO 2 Palette contains some really gorgeous shades – the top row are mattes and the bottom are all shimmers. Also, MUR have created these shadows with a brand new Super-Elite formula – ‘Bringing you more IMPACT with easy to blend, soft and butter-like application, allowing you to create super-elite performance eye looks.’ Ooh err!
Seriously though, this new-fangled eyeshadow formula really has made all the difference. Just look at the mattes! I AM SO IMPRESSED. If you’ve read any of my previous MUR eyeshadow reviews, you’ll know I always say their matte eyeshadows could be better but I’m usually happy to overlook the often chalky, and under pigmented mattes in favour of the amazing shimmers because the palettes a priced so affordably.
MUR really have pulled it out of the bag with their new Super-Elite formula though – the matte shadows are all a dream to work with, super pigmented and not chalky at all. Even the lightest shade showed up on my arm, which hardly ever happens – amazing!
And of course the shimmer shades are amazing, as always. The shimmers are all buttery soft and just have the wow factor when applying them and blending them in. These easily get top marks from me.
I also have four brand new shades of Salvation Intense Lip Lacquers –
- Depravity (purple)
- Rebel (magenta)
- Paparazzi (pink)
- Barely There (nude)
These Lip Lacquers really pack a punch with super intense colour and shine. I love Depravity and Paparazzi, and I’ve worn depravity over the same named lipstick to give the colour a bit of extra oomph! The formula is also non sticky which is definitely a plus, I hate that tacky lip feeling you get with certain glosses.
Overall I’m super impressed with everything here. The Iconic PRO 2 Palette is without doubt my favourite MUR palette so far, and for just £6.99 you should really snap this up too! There’s also an Iconic PRO 1 Palette with slightly different shades, so make sure you check that too. The Salvation Lip Lacquers also get a big thumbs up from me, again they’re cheap as chips at only £3.00 each, and do exactly what they say on the tin.
I’d love to hear what you think? I hope you enjoyed my post! xxx
