Makeup Revolution’s Iconic 1 Redemption palette

Makeup Revolution’s answer to Urban Decay’s various Naked palettes were the Iconic Redemption palettes. The color matches are fairly close. I don’t know how the eyeshadow quality compares, because I don’t own any of the UD palettes. But I can say that at USD$10 or below, these are a decent value - fairly good, for drugstore-range makeup.

As with most of the MUR palettes, the shimmer and pearl finish eyeshadows perform better than the mattes. These palettes are kind of on the fragile side, in that if you travel with them, wrap them in something soft to minimize jostling or you’ll end up with a cracked pan (or two) of shadow.
