Current Obsession: Revolution Palette

For months I have been meaning to add one of these to my collection. Beauty YouTubers and bloggers throughout the land have raved about Revolution eye shadow palettes, particularly for the fact that they're some of the best dupes out there for the Urban Decay Naked palettes. A dupe you say?! Hello. Okay so the Naked palettes are heavenly but this is as close to heaven as a student budget gets you. We're not fully into the heavenly realm but I can see angels etc. There's some celestial trumpeting and stuff. That's good enough for me.

This is the 'Redemption Palette Iconic 2'. I have no idea what it's redeeming me from but I certainly like it.

So we're talking a mixture of shimmer and matte shades from soft fawn, cocoa and pinker tones to the darker end of the spectrum. Wait...this sounds...oddly familiar...
a reasonably difficult game of spot the difference
Yeah it's sort of hilarious how obviously Naked 2 has been duped... but hey. This palette is amazing for a absolute fraction of the price. You'll notice that the Revolution palette is slightly cooler in tone than the Urban Decay, and with more shimmer shades, but the differences are minor. The pigmentation was obviously never going to be as strong as with Urban Decay but seriously...there's not much in it. How are they selling this so cheap?

You really can't complain when that's the pigmentation in this stuff! An easily blendable range of great dupe colours. Love love love. 

Available at Superdrug here


  1. I definitely think I'm going to buy at least one of those Iconic palettes at some point!! Although I bought the Revolution Matte palette and I'm just not impressed with the pigmentation or staying power, even though some bloggers were :/ Ah well you can't expect too much for £4!

  2. Oo is that the really bright one? This one is really quite impressive with a decent primer underneath...but true, they're so cheap it's worth just experimenting! x

  3. This palette is literally a perfect dupe for the Naked 2. It's really frustrating that my Superdrug in my uni town doesn't stock makeup revolution! The palettes are amazing!
