Makeup Revolution are really pumping out the palette’s right now! Last weeks’ review of the Naked Underneath Palette had me a bit divided, so I must admit on receiving these two I Heart Makeup palettes – which is a sub-section of Makeup Revolution aimed at younger beauty fiends – I was slightly concerned that the shadow formulas may be a bit of an issue…
The I Heart Makeup Obsession Palettes come in five different versions, and I have the lovely neutral toned Pure Cult above, and the slightly more daring Wild is The Wind palette mentioned below.
The I Heart Obsession Palettes include ten matte, shimmer and satin finish eyeshadows – and after swatching the first row of Pure Cult I was instantly impressed. I expected the shimmers and satins to be good, and they were great, and I was bracing myself for the mattes, but lo and behold they were really good too! I then checked the product details on the Makeup Revolution site to find out that the eyeshadows have a new formula (…I think) – it’s not totally clear to be honest as it may just be part of the advertising but take a look here and let me know what you think…
Either way, there’s absolutely no doubt that these shadows are fantastic value for money. The palette costs £3.99 – so basically less than 40p per shadow. This is CRAZY cheap!!
The Wild is The Wind palette is somewhat more daring – and I was intrigued to find out how the brightly coloured shadows would fare up…
Oh look, they’re amazing! Even the light, bright aqua shade on the left! I thought surely this will come out quite sheer and not so pigmented, but nope, it’s full of pigment and not chalky in the slightest.
The only slight issue I could come up with if I was nit picking, is the shadows create quite a lot of kick up, and the shimmers do give a bit of fall out. But seriously for £3.99 you’re not going to get a better palette than one of these.
I’d love to hear if you’ve tried any Makeup Revoution or I Heart Makeup products?
I hope you enjoyed my review xxx
