Hey Lovelies. I thought today it would be nice to show you my makeup I wore on Valentine's Day, including two Makeup Revolution palettes, which just happen to be my new favourites.

Iconic Pro 2 Palette
Firstly, this is a matte packaged palette that comes inside a rose gold package - gorgeous. It contains 16 matte and shimmer shades, very similar to the Lorac Pro palette, but a lot more affordable and packaged nicer in my opinion. As usual with Makeup Revolution they are very easy to apply, and pigmented enough for a lovely casual look or a night time look since it has a range of shades. I swatched a range of different shades to show you the range.

The winning feature of this palette is the double-ended brush that comes with it. They used to include sponge based applicators in the older palettes, but this brush is a game changer. I'm a typical Real Techniques kind of girl, with multiple sets and rely on them to help apply my makeup. To apply my eyeshadows for this look I used both ends of this brush, and only used one blending brush to smudge the lines to make my eyes stand out. The right-handed side of the brush is great for applying shadow in your crease for the darker shade of eyeshadow before you blend it in. Since then, I have only been using this brush to apply shadow to my crease. This has definitely made me want to invest in the other Makeup Revolution brushes and review them in the future, once I see a great product, I love going a step further and finding more great products that are worth the money.

The Iconic Pro 2 Palette is £6.99.*

Flawless Matte Palette
I am one for loving matte eyeshadows, especially 32 all in one palette. The shades in this range go from a really pale white/cream shadow, used for the inner crease, a base and a highlight, to a fairly dark shade that is perfect for a smokey eye look.
I only swatched a few, since my arms are not big enough for 12 shades let alone 32. I chose this palette as it is perfect for everyday use, as well as every occasion I can think for. I usually go straight for peach and pink toned shadow, with light browns for makeup for uni. On top if I'm feeling like it, I will add shimmery shadows, which I can do with the Iconic Pro 2 palette. The shade range is great and the size of the palette is not much bigger than a standard 16 shadow one, so it will fit in your handbag or travel bag with ease. It's not too heavy either, making everyday eyeshadows really portable.
For how pigmented and buildable the shadows are, including that they lasted all day, I believe the price of £8.00* is great.
Hope you liked my makeup look, the Makeup Revolution makeup range will always be my go-to affordable drugstore brand.
