Makeup Revolution launched back in March 2014, and I featured my very first Makeup Revolution Haul in April 2014. When they launched, their initial product range was tiny compared to their massively extensive range they have today but one of their main product lines was their collection of Iconic Eyeshadow Palettes. On their launch in March 2014 there were a total of 10 different Makeup Revolution Iconic Eyeshadow Palettes which were £4 each.
A lot of the original 10 palette have since been discontinued, but for 2018 they’ve launched four new Reloaded Iconic Eyeshadow Palettes. The original Iconic Palettes contained twelve shades in very narrow pans which I really didn’t love as they were too narrow for fluffy blending brushes without picking up shadows either side of the pan you were using. I’m thrilled that the layout and design has been totally revamped for the Reloaded Palettes as well as adding three extra shades whilst remaining at £4 each which is crazy and I chose the Makeup Revolution Reloaded Iconic Fever Eyeshadow Palette.
The original Iconic Palettes were £4 and contained 14 grams of product, whilst the new Reloaded Iconic Palettes are £4 and contain 16.5 grams of product so I really do think it’s amazing they’ve retained their initial £4 price tag. Packaging wise the new palettes are obviously bigger, and the pans are now laid out in three rows of five shades in rectangular pans inside a clear plastic palette.
The packaging does feel cheap there’s no denying it, but it’s £4 so it’s to be expected but even though it feels a little cheap, it’s not at all flimsy. I have all four of the new Reloaded Iconic Palettes, and the Makeup Revolution Reloaded Iconic Fever Eyeshadow Palette £4 I’ve got to show you which some have labelled a dupe for the Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette. I don’t own the Naked Heat Palette but I have done a post on the W7 Blazin’ Palette which again was made to look like the Naked Heat Palette.

The Makeup Revolution Reloaded Iconic Fever Eyeshadow Palette is a warm toned eyeshadow lover’s dream palette as it has every warm toned shade you could possibly want, and some more unique shades too such as shade 7, 11, 13 and 15 which aren’t the typical shades you’d find within a warm palette.
As I don’t own the Naked Heat Palette, I’ve just been enjoying this palette on its own merit without drawing comparisons and I love it so much. There are no disappointing shades and I like that it contains mainly matte shades, and the shimmers it does contain are all multidimensional shades which look stunning on the lids.
My favourite crease shades within the palette are shades 4,5 and 6, and I find they work with every other shade in the palette and my favourite shimmer would have to be number 15 as it’s such an unique shade.
I can’t believe this palette is only £4 considering how high quality the shades are, and how many grams of product you’re getting for your money. I think you’ll struggle to find a better palette than this within the drugstore for £4, and I can’t wait to show you the other three Reloaded Iconic Palettes very soon.
I would love to know if you’ve bought any of the new Iconic Reloaded Palettes? What do you think of the Makeup Revolution Reloaded Iconic Fever Eyeshadow Palette?
