Product Review: Revolution Redemption Palette Iconic 3

Since I run a lifestyle, beauty and fashion blog I like to keep my content quite varied but a lot of the time I feel like I don't post enough beauty content. Anyway, I've been looking for some inspiration by checking out what the beauty bloggers have been posting to Twitter and one of them had mentioned Product Testing UK. I checked it out immediately and sent away my details but by the time my first parcel had arrived I had forgotten and that's not because it took too long. I received the Revolution Palette Iconic 3 in the mail and I couldn't wait to review the product, I've been a fan of Revolution for quite some time so it will go nicely with my collection.

I tried out the shades that had a more dusty rose quality to them because I've been wanting to buy some eyeshadow in that sort of colour. I used the lightest shade as a base and then used the lightest shimmery pink and the darkest shimmery look to get the look in the image to the right. After applying the lighter shade I blended the darker one into the crease to give my eyes a subtle yet shimmery look. The part I used as a base actually doubled as a highlighter so I used it to reduce the appearance of dark marks under my eyes. I thought that the look was a relatively natural style which is the sort of thing I go for when I'm doing eye makeup so that's great. 

I found that because the look was so neutral I could go bolder with what I was wearing on my lips but since I wasn't going anywhere in particular I decided to go with something natural looking. As you can see in the picture to the left, it really was as subtle as I mentioned but I tested the lighter colours so I can imaging that you could make the look more dramatic by introducing darker shades. 

I also realised that my eyes looked wider and more awake once it was actually done which is something I really struggle with because my eyes are relatively small. 

One negative point about the palette is that the texture of the eyeshadow wasn't particularly smooth, I sometimes had to go back over the shade so it would stay in place rather than drop and fall on my cheekbones. 

If anyone else that blogs wants to sign up for product testing and reviews I advise that you use the attached link for Beauty Product Testing.
