Makeup Revolution Iconic Pro 1 & Iconic Pro 2

January 05, 2016


Eyeshadows, or better yet - eyeshadow palettes are what gets my attention first when I walk in DM or Kozmo or any makeup store. Sadly, there isn't huge selection, usually they have mono eyeshadows or quads. That is why most of my palettes are from Pink Panda. Every now and then I like to see what did Makeup Revolution came up with - copied from high-end brands. For a long time, I've been eyeing Lorac pro palettes on their web shop but they don't ship to Croatia. Even if they did, I think the shipping would be too much... MUR made this palettes - Iconic Pro 1 and 2 and they are supposed to be dupes for Lorac Pro palettes. I don't have Lorac palettes so I'm not able to compare them, but I found some videos on Youtube of people comparing them if you are interested.

I am the biggest fan of neutral palettes and these two beauties caught my eye right away because: 1. they have the same amount of matte and shimmer shades and 2. they have some colors that aren't brown-reddish-earthy tones I usually wear, but I can use them in neutral looks. Sometimes you gotta step out of your comfort zone.

They come in little cardboard boxes, unlike Iconic palettes and this rose gold one I keep in a visible place because it is really pretty to look at. :)

Sjenila, odnosno bolje je reći - palete sjenila su ono što me prvo privuče kad uđem u DM ili Kozmo. Nažalost, većinom nemaju velik izbor, najčešće su to mono sjenila ili eventualno nekakvi quadovi ili varijacije na tu foru, znači ne više od 4 sjenila. Upravo zato skoro sve moje palete kupljene su na Pink Pandi. Tamo svako toliko volim pogledati što je Makeup Revolution "skinuo" od poznatijih high-end brendova. Dugo sam originalne Lorac Pro palete gledala na njihovom web shopu koji, gle čuda, ne šalje u Hrvatsku. Ma i da šalju, mislim da bi shipping ubijao, kako to već ide... MUR je napravio ove palete - Iconic Pro 1 i 2, koje bi tebale biti kopije dviju Loracovih Pro paleta. Lorac palete nemam pa ih ne mogu usporediti, ali na YouTubeu sam naišla na nekoliko videa u kojima ih ljudi uspoređuju ako te zanima.

Inače sam veeelika (najveća) ljubiteljica neutralnih paleta, a ove dvije ljepotice su mi odmah upale u oko jer: 1. imaju jednak broj mat i shimmer sjenila i 2. ipak imaju par boja koje nisu smeđe-zemljane-crvenkaste koje inače nosim, a opet mogu lijepo uklopiti u neki neutralni look. Treba ponekad probati nešto novo i izaći iz comfort zone. 

Dolaze u kutijama za razliku od Iconic paleta, a ovu rose gold držim na vidljivom mjestu jer je stvarno divna :).

Both of the palettes come in same matte black plastic case which I find to be prettier than the see-through cases that most of the MUR palettes come in. The packaging is sturdy and well made. The first palette it a bit harder to open, so I often dip my nail into the eyeshadow, as you can see. :(

Obje palete su u istom crnom mat plastičnom pakiranju koje mi je puno ljepše od onih prozirnih sjajnih pakiranja ostalih MUR paleta. Pakiranje je dosta čvrsto i kvalitetno. Jedinicu ponekad malo teže otvorim, pa zabodem nokat u sjenilo, kao što se vidi na slici.  :(

Inside you have a plastic foil and all the names of the eyeshadows written on it, a big mirror and double sided brush. The brush is pretty good and I use it sometimes. The one side is smaller blending brush which I personally don't use for blending because it is really small and not fluffy enough but for precise application on outer V. The other side is classic flat brush which I use for applying the eyeshadow directly on the lid or on the lower lash line. Sometimes I even use it for spot concealing because of its size.

S njima dolazi i folija na kojoj su napisani nazivi svakog sjenila, veliko ogledalo i dvostruki kist koji koristim jer je dosta dobar. Kist je na jednoj strani manji okruglasti blending brush, iako ga baš ne bih koristila za blendanje jer je mali i nije dovoljno fluffy, više je za neko preciznije nanošenje sjenila na vanjski ili unutarnji kut oka. Druga strana je klasični flat kist za nanošenje sjenila na kapak ili na lower lashline. Poslužio mi je i za preciznije nanošenje korektora jer je dosta mali.

Every palette contains 16 eyeshadows - 8 matte and 8 shimmer shades. Iconic Pro 2 is a bit more cooler toned that the Pro 1.

The eyeshadows - both the matte and shimmer ones - are very soft, buttery, easy to blend but tend to have a bit of fallout. I don't mind that, just sweep it with the brush.

Also they are very pigmented. The matte shades are much better than the eyeshadows in other MUR palettes. I often wear them without the eyeshadow base because they are easy to apply lightly for a light wash of color, but can easily be deepened. On the other side, the shimmer shades aren't that pigmented as the ones in Iconic palettes. That is why they can be used as a overlay over other colors. Try it out, you might like it. :)

They last for a long time if applied over good eyeshadow base.

Što se tiče teksture sjenila, i ona mat i shimmer su jako mekana, lako se blendaju, ali se pomalo truse. Meni to ne smeta, one mrvice koje padnu na obraze prilikom šminkanja jednostavno maknem kistom.

Pigmentacija je odlična, a kod mat sjenila i puno bolja od sjenila u ostalim MUR paletama. Često ih nosim i bez baze jer se jako lijepo nanose i u tanjem sloju, ali se boja lako može i nadograditi. Shimmeri nisu toliko intenzivni kao u Iconic paletama. Baš zato se mogu koristiti i kao overlay preko ostalih sjenila. Probaj, može jako lijepo izgledati. :)

Trajnost sjenila je također odlična ali ovisi o kvaliteti baze ispod njih.

I really like these two palettes because of the great quality (even the less pigmented shimmer shades), I like the color selection and the price is fair.
Also, if you can't afford the Lorac Pro palettes, these are really good alternative.

Jako mi se sviđaju mi se ove palete jer su odlične kvalitete (unatoč malo lošijim shimmer nijansama), sviđaju mi se boje, a cijena je pristupačna.
Isto tako, ako si ne možeš priuštiti Lorac Pro palete, ove su odlična alternativa.




Cijena svake palete je 68,90 kn (16g) na Pink Pandi ili 6,99 funti na službenoj MUR stranici.

    1. Čokoladne nemam pa ti ne mogu preporučiti... Iconic 2 je stvarno odlična, ali u usporedbi s Pro 1 mi je Pro osobno ipak draža, ima više mat boja :) Ovisi što više voliš :)

  2. Joj ne, sad si me nagovorila da kupim Pro 2, jako me zanimaju "One way" i "New rules" nijanse. Jako dobra recenzija! :)
