First let me say I am really impressed with these Makeup Revolution I Heart Obsession palettes! These three beautiful palettes arrived last week and I'm incredibly excited about one in particular.

(l-r) Wild is the Wind, Paris, Pure Cult.

Wild Is The Wind*

A mix of matte a shimmer shades, this palette has different shades to the usual 'neutral' palettes you often see. In particular I'm curious to use the top left aqua colour, and the bottom right purple. I love how pigmented these eyeshadows are, as are the rest of the eyeshadows Makeup Revolution make. This would be a fabulous palette if you want to mix up your everyday makeup without going too bold.

 This is described as a romantic palette with some lovely everyday shades and the perfect greys, browns and blues to make a subtle smokey eye look. My favourite from this palette looks like it will be either the navy blue or the middle grey looking colour. This sounds mad coming from a beauty blogger but I don't usually try brown shades out, so I will make sure to test the full palette out!

This is the palette I am most excited for. To me, this is the perfect dupe for Urban Decay's Naked 3 palette. It really surprised me! Take a look at the photos below.

The photos aren't exactly true to colour, but these colours are almost identical. The top row is Urban Decay and the bottom is Makeup Revolution. With the shimmery shades, Makeup Revolution has more glitter/shimmer and is more pigmented. There is more lasting power with Urban Decay, but it is a balancing game between pigmentation and lasting power. If you can find the perfect primer to go with it, this palette is definitely for you. 

The big difference? Urban Decay Naked Palettes are £38.00 and Makeup Revolution Palettes (these versions) are £3.99. It is 9.5 times more expensive.... I rest my case. The only difference is that UD have more colours per palette, but you could buy another Makeup Revolution palette and still have huge savings.
