Review and swatches of Makeup Revolution Iconic Palette; Dupe for Urban Decay's Naked

If you haven't already heard about the makeup brand based in London, Makeup Revolution, you definitely need to check it out. I stumbled upon it a few months ago and fell in love with their wide arrange of eyeshadow and face palettes. The best thing is that their products are inexpensive. The dupe for the Naked palette is called Iconic and costs $7.99. How great is that? Take a look at the pictures below and see for yourself how closely the colors resemble the Naked palette. Makeup Revolution also has similar dupes for the Naked 2 and Naked 3 palettes, called Iconic 2, and Iconic 3. The wear of these is just as great as the real deal and the colors are pretty pigmented as well.

Quick Review and swatches of Physician's Formula Bronzer and Blushes

Physician's Formula products are usually available in certain drugstores. I picked mine up at CVS a while back when there was a buy one get one free sale. I don't remember the exact price for each of these but they cost about $7.99 to $14.99. I love taking avantage when there is a sale because for drugstore makeup, Physician's Formula is just a little bit pricier, but worth every penny. Most of their products are talc free and some of them usually claim to have some sort of organic or mineral ingrediets.    Although, the colors look very deep in the pictures and in person, the colors actually go on much lighter than they appear, which nice because if you don't have a light hand when applying these, you don't end up with too much product. Of course, the bronzers and blushes are buildable, they go on very soft and like I mentioned before, you don't have to worry too much about overdoing it with these. 

Beginning from the top left, Physicians Formula Ph matchmaker powdered blush in Rose, Sexy Booster Sexy Glow Bronzer, (bottom left) Happy Booster in Bronze/Rose, and Bronze Booster airbrush bronzing veil in medium to dark.

New Wet n Wild limited edition eyeshadows

These Wet n Wild eye shadows look better than I expected. My favorite is A Karat in the World; the colors are neutral, browns and golds with a high amount of shimmer. The Daring Downtown quad has very dark colors but the colors also have a high amount of shimmer. I love Wet n Wild eye shadows they are such a steal for the price!
