I got this for free as part of a bundle at Superdrug. It's pigmented enough to be a handy transition shade palette but that's about all. Nothing really wow'd me about it. There are many other neutral palettes out there, even from Revolution that are much better quality. Let's just say I'm glad it was free.

This is the ultimate ‘basics’ eye palette that can be used on its own or as a base for other looks. It contains 11 matte shadows and 1 shimmer that can be worn over other shadows. The colour play-off is great, and they blend easily. There is a little residue left behind when used with a brush. It does come with a sponge applicator, but I didn’t use it with the shadows as I prefer to use a brush. You can use all of them as eye-shadows or I have used the darker shades as eye-liner applying them using an angle brush. They last all day, don’t fade or go patchy. You can create looks that are perfect with jeans and a t-shirt or for a day at the office or a night out. The shadows can be worn singularly or more than one as they all work well together. I used the darker shadows singularly create the smoky eye look for a jeans and t-shirt day and with other shadows to create a more structed eye look. The pale shadows are brilliant as a base.

I am in my late 30's/early 40's with sensitive, fair tone skin and hazel eyes. My hair is dark brown, normal with coarse texture.
This is a palette which I would absolutely recommend! I use this product regularly whenever I’m going out. Funny story was my friend had tried a look on me using a different palette which I was not a fan of. We were already late and had to get ready quite quickly. I did happen to see my friend had this product in her box so I decided to try it and instantly loved it. Honestly speaking this is my new favourite product and it isn’t much expensive either so very much a good value for money. I also noticed that this palette makes my eyes look very nice in very dark atmospheres.

I received this as a present a few weeks ago, I love natural eye looks and I don’t wear many bold looks but this palette encouraged me to try different looks as there are a variety of colours - you can make a really natural or more of an occasion look out of this so it’s suited to everyone. The colours are also really pigmented so it is really good value for money.

This is a good one. I love the colours and I use this palette in my everyday makeup as well as when I go out it’s fantastic for how simple or advanced looks you can do with so little colours. I would definitely recommend this palette.

i had 3 of these palettes and i love the pigmentation, the colors but i do wish there was more shadows in the palette as i feel like the looks can be repetative but they are a good alternative to the urban decay naked palettes!

I bought this as I loved the colours and wear nude smoky colours day times, I was disappointed that they weren't pigmented enough to get a good colour base even with primer. I did get a stronger colour with a dampened brush but even then, I found that the colour creased easily after a short while. Whilst there is a good variety of colours and some were better pigmented than others, it's a true case of, you get what you pay for. A nice bargain? Not really I'm sad to say.

Received it as a gift and I love it. The colours are rather pigmented, but i found some of the dark tones harder to blend the first couple of uses but fine now. Great for someone to use as an everyday natural look x

These eye shadows have good pigmented and have a good range from natural to more outgoing.
The problem is it doesn't take long for them to crease and although pigmented a few need a few layers as a lot doesn't go a long way.

The revolution iconic set are my favourite eye shadows . They have such a light and almost creamy texture which doesn't irritate the eye . They have such a smooth quick application . The range of colours in each palette co ordinate great and the pigments are so bright and thick not translucent at all meaning it doesn't take layers and layers to get the colour it looks in the palette. I found that I prefer this to some high end expensive products like urban decay , they may only be £4 but they are better then some palettes worth 10x the price . My only issue is how easily the case breaks
