makeup revolution obsession palettes

Hey! so the other week i noticed that at the end of makeup revolutions summer sale the make your own palette selection from makeup obsession were very cheap! the eyeshadows, blushers, highlighters etc were all 30-60p, and the palettes themselves were £1.50 for the large 12 pan size! they didnt have the black ones but even so i wasnt going to pass up on this bargain.

eyeshadow palette left to right – white out, pearl, azure, denim, emerald fizz, miami, royal, hypnotic, haute silver, treasure, midnight black.

you can tell i made this palette cant you? all my favourite colours! as you can see, one or two of the shadows i had already. I really like these eyeshadows, they are smooth, pigmented, they blend really well and dont go patchy. Theres a wide collection of colours to choose from as well, so all in all a really good budget eyeshadow pick that you can make perfect for you!

left to right – contour powder in fair, highlight moon, highlight pop, l’amour, flame, bloom, sun ray.

ive only tried the highlighters from obsession makeup before, so i cant say how the contour powder or blushers are. but i can say that the highlighters are really nice, soft and bendable, and they pack a punch! i really like them, especially moon the pretty lilac one.

so all in all, especially considering the price i paid for all these im really happy! i got such a bargain and i know im going to use them.

what was the last bargain you got?

Makeup Revolution Pro Regeneration Trends Mischief Mattes Review & swatches.

Hey! so this is the first time ive talked about a makeup revolution product on my blog unless its just been listed in a makeup look but trust me it wont be the last! i adore makeup revolution, freedom, obsession products and my makeup collection shows that for sure!

well, a few weeks ago there summer sale started so of course i was straight onto there site (i may have placed another order the day im typing this too…opps), and placed a rather large order, however this palette was not in the sale. It was something i new from the moment it was released i was gonna be ordering the next time i made an order with them, so i did!

This is the Makeup Revolution Pro Regeneration Trends Mischief Mattes palette £8.00, and yes its got one heck of a name! but its worth it because for £8 its an extremely good matte eyeshadow palette.

It contains a wide selection of colours but its of course mainly brights, with a white and a beige thrown in too. Below ive swatched all of the shadows, this is all one swipe, though i will say i was rather warm when i swatched them hence the skipping due to warm hands!

From left to right – Saint, Attached, New Day, Day Dream, Half Time, Believer.
From left to right – Ringleader, Fearless, Shrine, Indication, Crusade, Poison.

From left to right – Upperhand, Underdog, Ricochet, Exclusive, Haunted, Cursed.

As you can see, theres a really good selection of colours, you have your more “wearable” pinks and purples, blues and greens and even a yellow! yellow and red eyeshadow are the two colours i really struggle to find yet the two in this palette are really good. The pigment is extremely good, i mean look at these swatches! for cheaper mattes its crazy, they blend out really nicely and as long as you prime (and i always do) they are going to stay put, even on my very oily hooded lids. I couldnt honestly recommend these enough, ive had trouble not picking it up for every look i do at the minute!

have you tried this palette? did you love it as much as i did? let me know!
