Customise your own Palette with Makeup Obsession!

Makeup Obsession is, I am hoping, a brand you have by now heard of and if not, you soon will. Last week I went to the launch party and learn all about the concept with Tam Beauty, the people who you might recognise with brands such as Makeup Revolution and Freedom Makeup, two brands who have shaken up the beauty industry by bringing affordability to the highstreet with amazing quality makeup and maybe an excellent dupe along the way.
Customise your own Palette with Makeup Obsession!

Makeup Obsession is all about creating your own look and to do that, you create your own palette using shades from a plethora of those currently available to do just that. In doing so you not only have the option to choose which shade you want to create a look, but you have he ability to create a palette which is unique to you, your personality and your style. But it isn't just about eyeshadows, there are also highlighters, blushers, contouring and strobing options thrown into the mix alongside the mattes, shimmers, pearlesque and bold colours.


If this isn't enough, they are so affordable, it is a challenge to not own every single option that there is available right now! The eyeshadows cost just £2 each, while the blushers, highlighters and contour shades cost £3. Then there is the cost of the palettes and again there is an amazing choice there as well. So for just £4 you can have a palettes which has six slots or you can pay £8 for a 12-slot palette and again there is a choice of black, white, silver, gold and rose gold! Personally I want one of each and will be very shortly making my own highlighter palette!

I was lucky enough to choose which palette I would like and which shades I would love to make up my own palette and as you might expect the possibilities are endless and each and every shade is just stunning, even if it is one you might never wear.  However, I am so predictable with my eyeshadow shades I went for the neutral shades and then added a few more into the mix, picked up a blusher, a base colour, some contour shades and a highlighter.  My palette which you can see above, I think, looks very me.


What has really impressed me is the how each shade is so incredibly pigmented, for me Makeup Revolution has set such a high standard when it comes to products so I was really expecting something a little bit special from Makeup Obsession and that is exactly what I got, it is just amazing. Not only is each shade, whether it is eyeshadow, blush, contour or highlighter pigmented, they are just incredible shades which absolutely do match the names they have given.

If you hadn't guessed already, then I absolutely love everything about this concept. Not only is it lots of fun with lots of choice, making your own palette gives you the chance to leanr a bit about yourself and gives you the opportunity to experiment outside the norm and your comfort zone, the tempting bright shades daring you to try them and all without having spending lots of money for something you don't like. It is fun, it is easy and it is exciting all rolled into one. I really loved the experience which is why I was excited to hear that if you’re near to a Boots Emporium, you can get your palette engraved. Which could make great stocking fillers and gifts this year.

  5. I've seen lots of people purchasing these and saying they're similar to Morphe eyeshadows! I'll have to try them out for myself, they look really pigmented on your swatches though! Lovely shades too!x

  18. I saw these in Boots the other day and for the price it looks so good. I recently bought a mac customisable palette and love the flexibility. x

  21. Oh this is a really cute idea, a lot of brands are trying to put this into place now with customised palettes I think its a great idea!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Every palette I have bought over the years has always had at least one colour that never got used. I like this idea of being able to choose exactly what colours I want included.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Loving this idea, especially on the high street. I currently have a MAC palate that I put together a few years back. But only London sells the refills

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh this would make a great present for my eldest daughter - she is seriously make up mad. I love the selection of colours that you chose.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Love build your own palletes!!
    I really hate waste so having colours I don't use really bugs me, so this is right up my street...it helps that I already love Makeup revolution <3

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  37. This is a fab idea. I hope my local boots has it. All the shades you've picked are ones I would pick for mjself x

    ReplyDelete
  38. These are absolutely stunning. I love the fact you can get them engraved too! I love half of the shades usually in a palette, so having the ability to make my own that is affordable too, amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Ooh! I saw this in Boots the other day and was so tempted to make my own. There's some gorgeous autumnal shades! xo

  40. These are amazing aren't they, I first saw them at the Boots Emporium launch and am hoping that Santa took notice of how much I liked them!

    ReplyDelete
  41. This is such a good idea as you can create the palette with colours you would use rather than have random ones in a palette that you never use.

    ReplyDelete
  42. For real you can do that? Such a brilliant idea, I think it will be a good birthday gift too. I always wanted to do that, as I have my favorite colours and I always had to buy different palettes just for one or two colours.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Oh this sounds great to mix and match the colours and create a palette to suit your needs :)
