My New Makeup Obsession! + Swatches

Screenshot_20170105-162325-01.jpegWhen I went shopping on Boxing Day, I picked up these little beauts from Makeup Obsession in Boots. These are a new brand which come from the same company as Makeup Revolution so I had high hopes!

Makeup Obsession is all about making your own palettes. You buy the palette individually (mine was free when spending £12 or more) which range from £4 (holds 6 shadows, could be more depending on the colour & finish or the palette) to £8 (holds 12 shadows, can be less depending on shade & finish of the palette).

The shadows are £2 and come in a large pan, they’re 2g each which is a great size! You can also get contour, highlight and blush shades with the same pan size but for £3.For my palette is only cost £12 with the special offer, which I think is an absolute bargain. I also love the fact the pans come in reusable single palettes, meaning you don’t need a shit ton of palettes if you want a shit ton of shadows. And great for travelling if you’ve only used one or two shadows.


Top to bottom- Rare, Precious Metal, Lucky Charm, Dark Chocolate, Cinnamon & Pearl. 


Here are the swatches (sorry about the glaring light, I had to use my daylight lamp), they’re nicely pigmented & blend amazingly. They last the whole day and I don’t even use a primer. They’re stunning, I’m already eyeing up some more shades to get!

My only downside is underneath the palette. It exposes the shadows to help with ease of popping them out. But every single time I open the palette I end up popping the bottom right shadow out and it can be a pain. But it’s definitely worth putting up with, these shadows are gorgeous and I have used them everyday since purchasing.

Anyone else tried these yet?

Thanks so much for reading!
