Makeup Revolution Romantic Smoked Palette

A few months back I purchased the Makeup Revolution Iconic 2 palette and immediately fell in love. If you are interested I wrote a review which can be found here. Honestly it has been used nearly everyday since it was bought therefore, another purchase was on the cards. This time the Romantic Smoked palette was my pick. Did it live up to my iconic 2 though? Here are my thoughts:





As you can tell the highly pigmented shadows of the Iconic 2 definitely carried on to this palette. However a few of the lighter shades are a bit disappointing but for £4 you really can not complain. The slightly darker shades make up for this though! There are a mixture of mattes and shimmers in which is great as it gives you choice. I love putting a shimmery shade on my lid and then a slightly darker matte in the crease. However with this palette my typical combination is all matte, so unusual for me. This look features the 5th from the right shade on my lid and 4th from the right in my crease and wow, its so gorgeous I promise! Khaki is quickly beginning to be one of my favourite colours to wear on my eyes and before I would have never have thought to go near the shade. The primary reason that this palette was picked up was due to me having green eyes and wanting to experiment with purples which are said to make the colour pop. So far I am really impressed, Makeup Revolution has done it again.

I highly recommend both of the palettes that I have tried. Both are great for day and night and so many different looks can be creates. For £4 they are such a bargain!






Have you tried any Makeup Revolution products?

  1. Such pretty shades in this palette. Makeup Revolution have continuously impressed me over the past couple of months and even if not all shades are 100% perfect, the price you pay is just amazing x

  22. I'm a sucker for everything Makeup Revolution, this palette is beautiful! However it does remind me a lot of MUA's Pretty Edgy palette! One of my absolute favourites. Not gonna lie I will probably end buying this anyway hahah.
