Makeup Revolution’s Iconic Smokey Redemption palette

This is the first of the Redemption palettes to have official names for the colors. It’s a little nicer than me just calling them “1, 2, 3…” direct across the palette! The colors were half-and-half: greys/blacks, and softer near-neutrals. The pigmentation levels were fairly good for MUR Redemption palettes, though all of the colors - with the exception of the matte near-black - are mid-intensity. The matte shades all needed a more thorough application to get decent coverage - again, typical of MUR Redemption palettes.
