I think y’all might have noticed how much time I’m spending writing on the blog. Well, I guess I just can’t leave you guys! Today I’ll be reviewing the Makeup Revolution Iconic Pro 2 Palette which is so hyped about right now.
Without further ado, let’s begin!
PRICE: 1550₹ for 9g.AVAILABILITY: Available on Amazon, Nykaa etc.
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: Be ICONIC, be a MAKEUP REVOLUTION PRO. 2 New Eyeshadow Palette Collections. NEW Palette…NEW Formula…NOW Contains our PRO 1989 Double-ended Eyeshadow Brush ! Our NEW SUPER-ELITE Formulation of eyeshadows. Bringing you more IMPACT with easy to blend, soft and butter-like application, allowing you to create super-elite performance eye looks.

I got this along with two other palettes which were on sale. There’s also something I’ve noticed and I want to clear it out, when I checked these palettes online, I saw that they were priced at around 1350₹ which is 22$ BUT when I saw these on the website, they were for 550₹ which is practically half of the price. I’m 100% certain that it is being sold at a higher price to us, innocent folks.
Moving on, the packaging is very unique. The Palette is packed is a gold, shiny cardboard packaging which, when opened, reveals the matte black palette. The details are written in a golden embossment. Matte shades are in the top row, while the bottom is composed of all the shimmery shades. The packaging is quite travel friendly given that the palette has a large mirror and a special dual-ended brush. It is also very sturdy.
Coming to the shades, they are a lovely combination of matte shades and shimmery ones. The color payoff is AMAZING. I also love the cherry-like scent this palette has. This is also a dupe of the Lorac Pro 2 Palette and frankly, I’m glad I didn’t spend a fortune on that one because this one is definitely better. (Or I’m just jealous.)
The staying power is around 5-6 hours, without applying a primer underneath. It can be improved by using a primer, obviously. I recommend it because it definitely makes the shades stand out.
Here are the swatches:
- Reminiscent of Lorac Pro 2.
- Pretty shades.
- Highly pigmented.
- Easily Available.
- Unique, shiny packaging.
- Decent staying power.
- Travel friendly.
- Smooth, creamy texture.
- Doesn’t settle into fine lines.
- Glides easily without tugging on the eyes.
- Easily blendable.
- Dual-ended brush is very useful.
CONS: None at all.
OVERALL VERDICT: MAKEUP REVOLUTION ICONIC PRO 2 is a Palette with all the qualities you would want. The shades are a gorgeous combination of mattes and shimmery shades which are buttery smooth and very easy to blend. I definitely recommend it to all Makeup geeks. Go for it!
