Undress me too VS Iconic 2

Affordable makeup that's still amazing quality is what we all want right? Mua and Makeup Revolution are probably the two most well known brands for fitting the job perfectly, both offering pretty much every makeup product there is but on the lower end of the price scale.


Their eyeshadow palettes are arguably their best products with both brands having a huge range with pretty much every colour under the sun included. Both brands are also quite well known, and more so Makeup Revolution actually for imitating high end brand makeup. For example Revolution have brought out some baked blusher trios that look strikingly like the Too Faced sweet heart blushes, they also have a few eyeshadow palettes that's packaging is like a chocolate bar, just like the Too Faced chocolate bar palettes...  But I don't knock them for this, in fact I think it's genius! Create products that look like the things everybody knows and loves but at cheaper prices and of course everyone's going to buy them.


Anyway a palette that both Mua and Revolution have done a take on is the famous Urban Decay naked 2. Both brands palette is priced at £4 which is a steal compared to the £38 of the Urban Decay one with Mua's called Undress me too and Revolutions Iconic 2. Now I don't actually own the Urban Decay palette so I'm not going to be comparing the cheaper palettes against it's pricey self, I thought why not put the two cheap palettes against each other and discover which is best.


So starting with the appearance of the palettes, they're both pretty basic in plastic packaging with the front being a large plastic window and they're both fairly sturdy too which is good. The obvious difference being that the Mua pans are circles and the Makeup Revolutions rectangles, I prefer the circle pans that Mua offer but I guess that's just personal preference. The actual eyeshadows look almost identical in the pans though and go in the same order as each other.

Now when it comes to swatching the eyeshadows, as you can see they're again pretty much identical to each other, however I think Mua just top Revolutions with pigmentation. To test the lasting power of them I created the same look on each eye with the different palettes and it was pretty much the same and impressively practically all day!


Both palette's are insanely good and seriously rival some of my more pricey ones, they're just so creamy and easy to blend. I have to pick a winner though and solely because it's the only thing that I could find was slightly different between them I'd say the Mua undress me too is the best because of the little bit more pigmented I found it.


I would really love to know if you've tried either of these palettes or maybe even both and have a favourite. Thanks for reading.
