Why You Need A Makeup Obsession Palette

A little while ago, I complimented one of the waitresses eye makeup in Nando's and she let me into her secret. Some Boots stores sell the brand Makeup Obsession - I had never heard of this brand before so I was excited to give it a go. I visited a store in Derby and they had it at the back of the store, I was impressed with the pricing of it, this brand is pretty cheap considering it's advantages. With this particular brand, you can mix it up as you can customise your palette with chosen shades of blushers, contours, bronzers, highlighters, lip colours and eye shadows. The temptation is real, and before you know it you've spent more money than you actually have in the bank!

I decided to go for three eye shadows and three of the others, I chose a contour, highlighter and blush. The eye makeup was £2 each and the others were £3 each. I had a lot of difficulty picking as there was so many options! Across the top, from left to right, we have Contour Powder C105 Dark, Eyeshadow E105 White Out and Eyeshadow E163 Plum. Across the bottom, from left to right, there is Blush B104 Flame, Highlight H105 Bare and Eyeshadow E124 Copper. They are all pretty pigmented for the price that I got them for, below is my swatches.

From left to right, there is Blush (Flame), Highlight (Bare), Contour (Dark), Eyeshadow (White Out), Eyeshadow (Copper) and Eyeshadow (Plum). My personal favourite is Plum for the shadows however, Copper is great for the crease if you want to keep it simple. I use White Out every time I put on eyeshadow as I usually tend to stick to a crease cut and the white covers any fallout on the lid. The blush is perfect for when you need a bit of colour, I find that once I put on all of my base that I look a bit pale and ill, so this is great to add some colour. I think the blush will be great in the winter weather. As for the highlight, it's not the best that I have used but it does its job for when I want to subtle glow. The contour isn't the best either as it's not too easy to blend but again, it does it's job and I have seen worse contour powders than this. 

I love this palette because for my holidays, it's an easier way of packing my make up. It's all in one palette so all I have to pack is my foundation, brow pencil, skincare and mascara. Plus some brushes. You can pick and chose what you put in the palette as you buy all of the contents separately. There was a deal on when I bought mine, so now I have a bigger palette with nothing in, I've got to get another 12 products to put into it. I think I'll wait until my bank account has recovered for that shopping trip.

You can brows Makeup Obsession here. Honestly, you won't be going away empty handed!

Until next time...
