Makeup Revolution - I heart Obsession

I was recently lucky enough to receive the new Makeup Revolution 'West End Girls'* and 'Wild is the Wind'* palettes from their I <3 Obsession range, and as always I was so excited to try the products out and see how the different shades would look once applied to the skin. I decided to swatch my favourite out of the two palettes, 'Wild is the Wind', so that you can see the shades in a bit more detail and get a clearer idea of how pigmented they are.

To display the colours at their optimum vibrancy I used some water while I created the swatches and it really did make a world of difference. Alone, I wouldn't say that the eyeshadows are quite as highly pigmented as some of their other palettes, especially the lighter colours like the soft lilac, but I definitely wouldn't let this put you off because as you can see they have a lot of potential to be opaque when built up with a couple of layers. It's also a nice option for them to be a bit more toned down anyway because it means that I can get away with wearing the vampy berry/brown shades during the day without looking too done up.

Some of the shades here are truly gorgeous, my personal favourites at the minute are the dark sea green (just above the bright turquoise) and the peachy shimmery colour just before the light purple. I'm really enjoying mixing some of the lighter and darker shades together to come up with a few different day time looks, and I'm sure that the more dramatic shades - especially the shimmery black - will come in handy on a night out.

I would absolutely recommend checking out these palettes if you feel like you're lacking a bit of colour in your life because the range of shades here covers looks for both day and night time and even takes you through from winter to spring with that gorgeous bright light blue. Definitely gonna have to start using that when the sun makes more of an appearance! And if you needed any more convincing, the palettes are only £3.99 each so they won't break the bank either!
