My final instalment in my Makeup Revolution weekend comes in the form of the I Heart Makeup Selfie Palette. This quirky Social Media influenced palette contains ten shades of pure heaven, each one highly pigmented and in colours that are just so wearable. With a free mini eye primer thats not only a beautiful shimmery champagne shade, the I Heart Makeup Selfie Palette is my new favourite for travelling and has been gracing my eyelids daily.
When I first received my I Heart Makeup Selfie Palette, I had to compare it to other palettes that I already own as the colours look really familiar in their order, but I can’t match it to any existing palette. I’m guessing it means that I just own far too many eye shadows. The palette itself is small, but perfectly formed with a quirky holographic lid that changes from black to purple at different angles. A mirror fills the lid on the inside, which is always a bonus for me and each shadow has a social media inspired name. Although I am a lover of social media, some of the # names used are some that I have never used! Ranging from light shadows to dark, the Selfie palette will take you from day to night in an instant.
The colours are so insanely pigmented and they feel more like pressed pigments rather than just normal eyeshadows. They catch the light so well, and although it has been said that women of a certain age should stay away from shimmery eyeshadows, I think that the way they shimmer and the fact that they are quite finely milled will suit any age and skin type. As a traditional smoky eye gal, I like a nude smoke for the day and a heavier darker smoke for the evening so the I Heart Makeup Selfie Palette is absolutely perfect. The colours blend easily and last for such a long time especially when applied over the top of the mini eye primer that comes free with the palette. Half of the shades are very finely milled and whilst the other half aren’t as fine, it has no adverse effect on application, just a teeny bit extra fall out than the other colours.
Although this is my first foray into the world of Makeup Revolutions eyeshadows, I can safely say that it will not be the last. And at only £4.99 for 10 shades, the I Heart Makeup Selfie Palette is not only great quality but also extremely affordable.
