Okay, I didn’t originally plan to review an eye shadow palette this early in the game for a few reasons. One, I don’t wear it often enough and Two, my eye-makeup skills are poor to say the least. However, when I was buying shampoo in Boots the other week I wandered over to the make-up section, as one does, and came across this beautiful palette. The colors were so pretty and summery I NEEDED them on my face, so I bought the palette along with my shampoo and played around with it.
Back to present day I’ve had some time to use the palette and create some eye looks, so I thought I may as well review it because hey, content.
Let’s start with the nitty gritty. The Palette is from a company called Make-Up Obsession and is called ‘Dream With A Vision’. It usually retails for £10 in Boots, but I got it 20% off for £8 (another reason why I bought it tbh) and you can find it HERE.
The packaging is very pretty with a pastel theme, it also has a magnetic close which I LOVE in make-up palettes. This product is also cruelty free and vegan which is great to see!
- The shadows themselves are so pretty, I love the color range and they’re going to be good for creating summery eye looks.
In order to properly test out the palette and give my opinion on it, I used it to create a few make-up looks to test out the pigment of each color, how easy they were to blend and how they actually felt on the skin.
(disclaimer: i’m very new to creating eye shadow looks so if these are bad i’m sorry! Tips in the comments would be much appreciated!)
Thoughts? Well, the pigments are decent for the price, the paler colors do take two or three coats to show up on the skin but that’s to be expected for a palette at this price point. The darker colors are pretty pigmented from the get go which I was impressed by.
Blending, by my untrained hand seemed pretty easy, then again these looks may not be well blended at all and I just can’t tell! But for the make-up amateur these are easy to work with.
The shadow’s feel okay on the skin, after my third attempt of the blue look my eyes were sore from all the rubbing off and re-blending, but that’s my own fault rather than the palettes. The longest I’ve worn these shadows is on my birthday when I went for dinner/drinks with my parents, they held up all night, despite my less than sober state so I don’t think you would need to re-apply them throughout the day.
Overall, I think this is a lovely little palette and is of good quality considering it’s price. I’d definitely recommend it if you’re in need of a summery palette that won’t break the bank!
Have you tried this palette, or other products by Make-Up Obsession? What did you think? Also I was serious earlier about commenting eye shadow tips below. Please. I need help!
