Mixing Up My Makeup: Makeup Obsession Review

3/15/2017

“A girl can never have too many makeup palettes…”

Well, I am not sure if that is strictly true but it’s certainly a motto that I like to live by, evidenced by my overflowing dressing table drawers. I have stacks of different ones and yet I still find myself buying more, telling myself they aren’t the same as the one I bought the week before. Or, you know, the week before that…

Until very recently, however, I had never tried a palette that I could actually put together myself so I was especially excited to be able to try one from Makeup Obsession – which allowed me to do just that! 



While the products inside are of course the most important, it’s always nice when things are packaged nicely too. I have the Medium Luxe Gold Obsession palette, which has this fantastic mirrored design. 
Inside, there is space for six singles and you are not limited to what you add. The Makeup Obsession range includes eyeshadows, contour, highlight, and blush shades so you can keep all the products you might need in one place.

In my palette I was sure to include a bit of everything; there are shimmering shadows, a glistening highlighter and peachy toned blush. I’ve swatched them below.

(L-R Alba, Perfect, London, Scene, Banana Powder, Ice)




When you use shimmery eyeshadows, I always think there is a danger you will get one that looks great but really doesn’t have much substance. These on the other hand, are really pigmented, easy to blend and they last well. London, Alba and Scene really suit my pale skin tone. I also tend to use Banana Powder, which is a contour shade, as a base for the shadows.



The blusher, which I wear in Perfect, is really easy to build and gives great dynamic colour – without being overbearing. I follow this by dusting on a little highlighter in shade Ice. It gives me a really subtle glow and while it’s a little too glittery for me in the daytime, it’s perfect for a night out when you want your makeup to have a bit more ‘wow factor’. I often add a little of this around my tear ducts too.

All in all, I’ve been so impressed with this brand and it’s so exciting to be able to mix up your palette whenever you feel it. I still have more singles that I haven’t added into my palette yet, so I am looking forward to trying those out and sharing them with you soon.


If you like the look of these and want to pick some up for yourself, prices start at just £3 – with the palette case being available for only £6. Makeup Obsession is available at local Boots stores and online.
