There is a new makeup brand coming up on the market called Make up Revolution. It exclusively hits Superdrug stores today and it is aimed at people on a budget who don't want to compromise on variety of products and colours. One of the products that really stood out for me at the press day was this Urban Decay Naked 3 palette (my review) dupe called Redemption Palette Iconic 3* which you can get for mere £4! I thought I'll give you a quick review and comparison of some of the shades.
In terms of packaging, as you can see it looks slightly cheap and reminds me of ELF or MUA packaging, but the clasp holds tightly and you can see the shade variety through the plastic window. Inside you have twelve shades (without names) and a double-ended applicator. From the photos above you can see how similar the shades are to the ones in the Naked 3. Most of them look almost identical, even the matte ones. But how do they compare to the famous Urban Decay's quality? Well, it's not as bad as you think! Obviously, I wasn't expecting a buttery-soft formula, but the eyeshadows apply easily, blend nicely and there is a minimal drop out - I was very pleasantly surprised. In terms of pigmentation, Naked 3 wins all the way, especially with darker shades like Factory and Blackheart, as you can see in the swatches, but the lighter shades are OK to work with.
All in all, I think it's a great buy for someone who is on a budget and doesn't want to fork out £37 for an eyeshadow palette, doesn't wear eyeshadows that often or simply begins their adventure with the world of eye palettes. There are plenty of other palettes from Makeup Revolution, including the ones with very neon-acid hues and after swatching them on a press day I was again pleasantly surprised at their quality - I think they're great alternative to Urban Decay Electric Palette and good to take on festival or some Ibiza holiday.
