Makeup Revolution Iconic Pro / Lorac Pro Dupe & Swatches

It will come as no surprise to you that I've been haulin' recently (full feature to come soon over on my youtube channel) and one of the many things I got all wibbly armed and jittery legged about was this beautiful Iconic Pro eyeshadow palette from Makeup Revolution. I've got my fair share of eyeshadow palette's from old Makeup Rev and have been a longstanding fan of their Naked3 Dupe which you may have seen here but this one ladies and gents. This one just might be my new fave. 
In case you hadn't already noticed, it's basically an unmistakable dupe for the Lorac Pro Palette which can be a little bit tricky for us UK'ers to come across, oh.. and this one is a mere £6.99 too.. so that's always positive.
I'm majorly into the matte neutrals for an everyday bit of somethin'somethin' especially the last but one purpley reddy shade (technical term). For some reason right now I'm all about the reddy/purpley and let's be honest.. occasional blue smoky eyes right now.
And can we just.talk.about.them.shimmers.
The first two are actually pretty damn good as a fierce highlight if you're down with that kinda thing (I'd put money on you enjoying it under the brow bone) and of course, yet again I'm all up in the reddy purpley grill of shadowland but I'd have to say that my absolute fave shimmer is probably the silvery number on the farthest right. I'm not usually one for cool tones (unless I'm doing ma blue thang.. holla atcha girl for a tutorial btw) but this shade has a lot more depth than you'd imagine by looking at it in the pan : cue my sausage arm showing you the swatches in the same order as shown in the palette image above.
I'd also like to take this opportunity to say that the double ended brush that they supply you with isn't crap! Like.. I've actually used it and enjoyed doing so which I'm pretty sure is groundbreaking when it comes to drugstore palette offerings.
So, what're your favourite shades from the palette?
I'm planning on filming an eye makeup tutorial using this badboy so if there's anything in particular that you'd like to see than just hollar!
