Okay, we all know I'm obsessed with eye shadows and we know I'm not going to change and I'm probably going to have to go to a intervention one day for it. In the meantime, this is one of the latest palettes from Makeup Revolutions sister company I HEART Makeup and we just need to take a minute to show appreciation for this palette.
Makeup revolution have sent me some palettes in the past and you know that I will tell you honest reviews. They are very good quality for the amount they cost, it's crazy but this is something very different. So the palette has a big jewelled heart on the front and a really soft lid which is so cool. When you open up the palette, there are a range of basic shades with a few pop of colours in there to make your look go from basic to full affect with minimal effort. The shadows are insanely soft and velvety. I don't have it confirmed but it feels like they have changed their formula to something very special for how cheap they work out to be. Velvety shadows in a velvet palette, heaven!
I love that this palette has more matte's than shimmers as you can create a lot more with mattes and I makes the palette more versatile. This palette is only £7.99 and the quality of the shadow is crazy for £8. I paid £34 for a palette which was crap quality compared to this and that is one of the things I love about it because everyone would expect them to be rubbish due to the price but don't judge a book by its cover - they're so good.
I created this look below with Sweet as a transition shade blended in the crease then Wild which is a brown with a purple undertone, on top in the crease and down into each corner. On the lid I used a beautiful champagne colour called Long which went so well with the crease shade. I also took Wild down onto the lower lashline and popped Long in the corner for a little inner corner highlight. This look was so simple to achieve, you dont need to use a lot of shadows to create a look. Excuse the freckles coming out under my foundation.. as soon as the sun comes out, they start coming out!
Have you tried any of the I HEART Makeup Palettes? I would advise on this one!
