Makeup Revolution Redemption Palette Iconic Elements Review

Usually I'm not an eyeshadow kinda gal, I'm not one with the blending and end up with an eyeshadow splodge across my eyes! To this day I only own three eyeshadow palettes which I use once or twice a week, but found a gap in my small collection for an every day matte palette. 

Of course I'd heard a lot about Makeup Revolution and their affordable eyeshadow palettes and had to give their Redemption Palette Iconic Elements a go - at £4 you can't really argue either! I've been using the Real Techniques Eye Makeup Brushes to apply them, as well as an eyeshadow primer and matte eye cream (which I'll get onto later!) I found the size of each eyeshadow is really generous compared to others and the packaging isn't too bad considering the price. I don't like the rubber eyeshadow brushes included, so that goes into the bin unfortunately, but I really like the size and slim shape of it as it fits into my makeup collection nicely.

The actual eyeshadows themselves were exactly what I was looking for. I needed everyday matte browns, taupes and pinks which I can wear to work but not feel so self conscious wearing them! There's one shimmer (third from the left) which is a nice addition to the inner corners of my eyes. Probably the least used are the banana yellow one (fourth from the left) and the two darkest shades, but saying that they would be good to line my eyes instead of a liquid eyeliner. I've been using the middle three the most, then adding a darker brown in the crease of my eyes for definition as my every day smokey eye.

I thought I'd test the creasiness (if that's a word!) of this palette, because that's the biggest problem I have with eyeshadow right now. I used the same three shades and added either an eyeshadow primer or matte eyeshadow cream or nothing as a base. Of course, with nothing underneath my eyeshadow creased before I even got to work, then with the Benefit Cosmetics Stay Don't Stray Primer it lasted until about lunchtime then started creasing. Finally I used the Maybelline Color Tatto Creamy Matte in Creme de Nude as a base, then layered the eyeshadow on top and it finally stayed and didn't crease! Definitely onto a winner with this combo and will now be wearing this all the time.

You can pick up the Makeup Revolution Redemption Palette Iconic Elements from Superdrug and online for £4.

Have you tried this Makeup Revolution Palette before? What's your thoughts on eyeshadows?
