Revolution Iconic 2 is an affordable beauty tool for make all variety of daily and/or festive make-up. It has shimmer, satin and matte shades, all of which compliment each other and even a novice can make a rather sophisticated look combining them. The shadows are mostly well-pigmented (matte shadows require a base to be highly-pigmented though), long-lasting and easily applied and blended. They are not flaky, chalky and do not roll on the eyelid into any kind of pellets. The container for the shadows isn't a masterpiece, it doesn't sport a mirror, it looks cheap (a bit better in upgraded version, when the shadows are placed in two rows, alas, I had an old one with 12 slim eye shadow rows), and is easily scratched losing its appeal, but to its credit - it is not a flimsy one. The applicator is two sided, however, both sides have sponges, it would be better to have at least one of them as a brush.
Nevertheless, it is a very good choice for a palette, I can safely recommend it.
