My Favourite Colourful Palette by Flashmob Cosmetics!

Wednesday, 1 October 2014

There's nothing I love more than a good eyeshadow palette. (Well there are actually quite a few things I love more than eyeshadow palettes but you get where I'm going with this). 
When this little guy arrived at my door from #Flashmob Cosmetics, I was incredibly excited to see how it performed!
The colours are absolutely beautiful - I love that the colours are still wearable yet completely different from your generic everyday eyeshadow palettes.
You get 12 eyeshadow shades for £6.25, which is incredible value - but how well do the eyeshadows perform?
First and foremost, the pigmentation of the eyeshadows is unbelievable for such an inexpensive palette! The shadows aren't chalky, they're buttery and while they have a gorgeous shimmer to them, they don't have chunky glitter particles that make them difficult to apply.
I never wear eyeshadows without primer, but in the spirit of fair reviewing, I went sans primer! (Shock, horror!) 
My make-up naughtiness paid off, as the lasting power of these eyeshadows is amazing - I wore these for six hours with no creasing or patchiness. I have high-end eyeshadows that don't last this long even with primer, so needless to say I'm incredibly impressed by this palette.
My favourite thing about the palette is the selection of colours - I have so many neutral palettes that I get sick of the same looks, just different brands. I think some of the colours featured in this little collection are so unique, for example the first two on the left - I don't own any lilac or salmon coloured eyeshadows that I can actually wear!
Here are swatches of all the colours - aren't they just beautiful?! This is without a base underneath, so adding a base really makes the colours pop (especially a white one, like NYX's Milk Jumbo Pencil!)
The palette is also appropriate for both summer and winter make-up looks - there's an excellent variety of bright and dark colours in it.
The one issue that I can see some people having with the palette is the fact that there are no matte shades included. This isn't a problem for me personally, but it may be something to consider if you're thinking of getting this palette.
I highly recommend this palette - at £6.25, you really can't go wrong!

  3. I honestly haven't heard of this brand before, would be really lovely to try something from them. The swatches looks amazing and I must say it seems like brilliant quality for the price.

  4. What incredible vivid colors. I haven't tried this palette but i love makeup so much. I am currently obsessed with Too Faced bring sexy back palette as well as the Urban Decay naked 2 but I love the colors on this one and will try it for sure. It is a steal for that price. Have a great weekend and thanks for sharing.
