Makeup Revolution's I Heart Obsession Palettes

Makeup Revolution - I Heart Obsession Palettes
Makeup Revolution - I Heart Obsession Palettes
These palettes are the latest release from Makeup Revolution's I Heart Makeup range. There are five limited edition I Heart Obsession palettes available. I have two of the more colourful palettes in the collection: Paris and Wild Is The Wind.

There are 10 eyeshadows in each of the palettes, and there is a mixture of both matte and shimmer shades in each. These are more colourful palettes than I would usually go for (I'm big into neutral shades). However I've been playing around with them for about a week, and have created some lovely wearable - albeit very shimmery - looks with both palettes. One thing to note about these two palettes the majority of the shadows are quite shimmery!

I Heart Obsession Paris PaletteLink! This palette is described as romantic. It contains 10 shades, I thought it was worth mentioning that the shadows in this palette have a very smooth texture with little to no fall out.

The first shade is a pale gold glitter shade. It has a buttery smooth texture with decent pigmentation. When applied to the eye it's extremely glittery.  I apply it to the lid with a flat shader brush.
The next shade is a dark brown almost matte shade with gold glitter particles through it. It's a very pigmented shade. Ideal to darken your crease or to use it in your outer corner to smoke out a look.
The next shade is a rosy pink shade with a gold metallic finish. It has a really smooth texture, with buildable pigmentation. I have used it as a base shadow in my crease.

The next shade is a purple grey metallic shade with multi-coloured glitter particles through it. The shade is quite sheer, however it is possible to build the colour up.
The next shade is a duo chrome shade. It is a sea foam green colour mixed with a mid tone brown. There is a very small amount of glitter through it. It has decent pigmentation. This shade reminds me of MAC Club, Wet 'n Wild also have a similar shade in their comfort zone palette.
The next shade is a metallic royal blue with blue glitter partials through it. Again the pigmentation is quite sheer - however it is buildable.

The next shade is a matte nude beige - perfect to use as a base shadow or as a transition shade. It is incredibly pigmented, and has a soft, smooth texture.
The next shade is a sheer white metallic shadow with silver glitter through it.

The next shade is a silver metallic shade with sliver glitter particles through it. Again this shade is quite sheer when applied.
The last shade is a peachy, pink metallic shadow, with multi-coloured glitter through it. It has decent pigmentation, and is ideal for highlighting the inner corner of the eye. It also looks lovely used in the centre of the lid to brighten up any look.

I Heart Obsession Wild Is The Wind Palette- Link! - This is a colourful smokey palette - Again the palette contains 10 eyeshadows. The texture of the shadows in this palette are more powdery and therefore tend to have more fall out than the shadows in the Paris palette. But once you tap off any excess shadow on your brush before applying, you shouldn't have an issue. And again much like the Paris palette the shadows in this palette are quite shimmery.

The first shade is a aquamarine matte shade. It has quite a soft powdery texture with buildable pigmentation.
The next shade is a petrol green colour- with a soft smooth, but still slightly powdery texture. The colour payoff is good. In the pan the shadow looks like there are tiny blue shimmer particles through it, but when applied the shadow looks matte.
The next shade is a blue metallic shade with blue shimmer through it. It also has a smooth soft texture. This shade is slightly less pigmented than the previous two shades but is still buildable.

The next shade is a burgundy colour with burgundy shimmer running through it. The best way I can describe it is as a matte shade with micro glitter particles through it. It has a soft smooth texture with decent buildable pigmentation.
The next shade is a deep purple  matte shade, it has a slightly powdery texture but has excellent pigmentation.
The next shade is a gun metal grey shadow with silver micro shimmer through it. It has a smooth texture and decent colour payoff.

The next shade is a silver metallic colour, with a really smooth texture (not at all powdery) and great colour payoff.
The next shade is a peach frosty metallic shade with glitter through it. It's a very pigmented shade, and is absolutely one of my favourites from this palette.

The next shade is a very sheer lilac colour with a small amount of shimmer through it. It has a slightly sheeny finish.
The last shade is a matte purple shade -it has a soft, powdery texture with decent pigmentation.
These shadows lasted about 6 hours on me with no primer, and about 8 hours with primer.

If I had to choose between the two, I'd have to say the Paris palette is my favourite, as I prefer the range of shades it offers. Also there is a matte beige shade that I love in the Paris palette which can either be used as an all over base shade, or as a transition shade. I uploaded a look to my Instagram using the Paris palette here.
I really like the shade ranges in these palettes, I was impressed with the wear-time & I really liked the smooth texture of the majority of the shadows. I do wish some of the shades were a little more pigmented. In saying this even the less pigmented shadows in these palettes are buildable. For £3.99/€5.50 I'd definitely recommend checking these I Heart Obsession palettes out!

I bought some of the Makeup Revolution single eye shadows over a year ago, and I have to say that the texture, pigmentation and wear-time of each individual eyeshadow was excellent! Check out my full review to them here.
I have really been impressed with the Makeup Revolution products, I've tried so far, I'd love to know what your favourite products are from the brand?

    1. Hi Emma, I can't believe how inexpensive they are. Each shadow works out at about 39p each. They are by far the best budget makeup brand I have come across.
