Makeup Revolution Awesome Metals Foil Finish Eyeshadow Review

Hold onto your eyelash curlers beauty buddies as I think you’ll fully appreciate today’s post… did someone say rose gold?! *ahh hmm* FOILED METALLIC ROSE GOLD?!

I could do the whole let’s play it cool thing and work my way up to telling you how bloody awesome this little pot of lid lustre really is but let’s just cut to the chase. I didn’t think I could love Makeup Revolution any more than I already did (thanks to Iconic 2 AND Mermaids Forever *happy sigh*) however my latest discovery has proven me wrong as there seems to be plenty more room for even more shadow swooning. However enough of me singing Makeup Revolution’s praises as we get down to business.

Fancy smearing your lids in rose-gold goodness? Then you’ve come to the right place…

What I adore is the subtle colour of the shade, yet the vibrancy of the metallic finish. The colour isn’t overly coppery on one application however the more layers are added the stronger the shade becomes which makes it perfect to work with if you only want a hint of rose gold OR if you’re up for the full copper experience!

.

WHAT’S TO LOATHE?

Honestly, nothing. Nada. Zilch. Personally I adore everything about this cute little kit. Okay the products may be a tad compact but unless you’ve eyelids like hammocks it’s going to last a super long time (depending of course on how often you apply!)

Makeup Revolution Iconic 2: Metallic Eyes…

Makeup Revolution Redemption Iconic 2 Eye Shadow Palette

 

I’m in love. Sounds a bit over dramatic when it comes to eye shadow, huh?

Of course this past number of weeks I’ve been so wrapped up in pastels & pinks that I’ve almost managed to forget how beautiful a metallic semi-smokey eye really is… and how damn wearable whether it be day, night, summer or winter. Although I’m often intimidated by bold shades of lippy, a dramatic eye never fazes me. In fact, the bolder the better is quite often my motto when it comes to dressing up my lids. So this weekend I waved a dismissive hand to pastels and said hello to mesmerising metallic’s; all thanks to the pocket friendly Makeup Revolution Redemption Iconic 2 palette & it’s array of show-stopping shades…

MUR Redemption Iconic 2

Okay so the title may be a tad grammatically dramatic but it’s certainly in keeping with the pigmentation that’s simmering below the lid. But let’s start at the beginning gals = price. Everyone knows I LOVE a bargain, and what could be better than parting ways with a mere £4 for a medley of twelve cool toned shadows? For just short of fiver, Makeup Revolution have managed to create what I’d consider to be the closest dupe to the Naked 2 I’ve yet to sample. Crazy, huh?

In fact, the pigmentation is so good it makes me question if high end offerings are indeed overpriced and over-rated in comparison. Are we unnecessarily paying an arm and a leg just for fancy schmancy packaging? Don’t get me wrong, I ADORE my pricier palettes, but for anyone who hasn’t yet invested in any I’d be pretty quick to recommend the Makeup Revolution as a worthy alternative equivalent.

Taking a quick peek at the shade selection, it’s a sassy range of cool matte & shimmering metallic tones that will undoubtedly work well with pretty much any complexion. One thing I will say is that the lighter matte shades are slightly disappointing compared to the rest of the colours. The highlighter & base tones pale into insignificance against the mighty pop of the bold metal tones which are even more impressive if you decide to use them with a slightly dampened brush = a semi foiled finish that’s utterly multifaceted *swoon* The colour literally lights up the lid *more swooning* Check out a close up of the scrummy copper coloured look I created this weekend…

Of course any cosmetic craver will more than likely agree that when you find something so damn fabulous in (almost) every way you can’t help but insist anyone with a pulse NEEDS to have it in their life. But what’s not to love? The pricing, pigmentation & consistency are all clear winners. Okay, so the outer casing is a tad uninspiring but I’d much rather have quality on the inside than pretty packaging containing shadows that pack as much colour punch as self-raising flour *sigh*
