Say hello to yet another new offering from Makeup Revolution! When two NEW eyeshadow palettes landed on my doorstop I could not contain my excitement, Makeup Revolution have won so many hearts with their super quality make-up products at such affordable prices and I can definitely say that I am well on the way to loving this brand and I can not wait to see what is next for MUR.
Makeup Revolution have launched 5 new limited edition eyeshadow palettes called I ♥ Obsession, each with a different name and colour scheme. I was sent two palettes, 'Wild Is The Wind' which has a mixture of bright, neutral and jewel-toned shades and 'Pure Cult' which is actually a dupe for the Naked 3 palette. These two palettes are an excellent addition to my collection since I can use neutrals for everyday use and the bright/jewel toned colours for when I am feeling creative and want to experiment.
Packaging wise, these palettes are very practical and travel-friendly. You can see the shades thanks to the transparent lid. Each of the shades are laid onto very spacious square pans which is not only great for the amount you get but it is also great as this gives you enough room to swirl your eyeshadow brush without mixing into another colour by mistake. Each eyeshadow has been imprinted with a 'I ♥' or 'Obsession' which adds a nice touch and makes the palette look a bit more pricier. The palette does not have a mirror not does it contain a brush which does let this down ever so slightly. It did contain a double ended eyeshadow applicator but I hardly use those any more since I prefer to use brushes, it's ok for quick touch ups but not for proper applications. The eyeshadows don't have an individual name which would of been better but seeing as the palettes are limited edition maybe MUR will see which colours were popular so that they could add some new shades into their permanent line?
Now onto the good points, visually this palette is very eye-catching and I was very drawn towards the turquoise shade. There are a mixture of matte and shimmery eyeshadows so you really are spoilt for choice. In terms of pigmentation, I was quite surprised to see how vibrant some of the the shades looked and without the help of a primer! This particular palette is a dupe for 'Stila's Eyes Are The Window' palette which is great because who doesn't love a dupe and it far cheaper than paying out £30! I heart the staying power of these eyeshadows, it lasts a good 7-8 hours at the most and the texture is just amazing! It feels so buttery-soft and blends without any extra effort. My personal favourite shades are the lilac and the royal blue. I will definitely be switching up the colours I use when I do a smokey eye, if I replace the normal black that I use and opt for the royal blue or forest green then it would look just as lovely.
All in all, I am quite impressed by MUR, this particular palette is great for those who love colour and who wants to experiment, the pigmentation and texture is great and the colour range means there's shades to suit everyone. I have named this my 'party' palette, definitely great to add to your collection and what's good is the price! At only £3.99 how can you really go wrong?!
