So last week when one of the lovely ladies at work told me the Boots Christmas Shop had opened in my local Boots she mentioned they had a new counter where you could make up your own palette.
I have a tendency to avoid Boots after buying myself a few payday treats because I’d buy everything if I could, but I HAD to go have a look.
Lone behold – Makeup Obsession. This particular range allows you to fill your own palette and has eyeshadows, blushes, contour, highlight and strobing pans to choose from. The price point is between €2.50 – €4.00.
The palette choices are six or twelve pans and come in a range of colours. I chose the twelve palette in rose gold which was €11.
Here are the the shades I picked:
And the swatches with names starting with the top left:
I tried to pick some transition shades, lid shades, socket shades and some pops of colour. I chose a mix of shimmers, glitters and matte shades too. I had intended to pick all eyeshadows but unknowingly picked up a blush and highlight pan (Blush Bronze & Highlight Bronze) but they work very well as a shadow and I like dual use makeup products because they lighten the load of how much makeup products you need especially when travelling!
Overall, I’m very pleased with it. The pans are very pigmented, buildable and blendable. The mattes are quite chalky but I find this with pretty much every matte shadow so it doesn’t bother me. The shimmers are nice and buttery and apply like silk which I love. And the glitter containing shades are not chunky and apply seamlessly too 🙂
Something else I really liked is that Boots do an engraving service now and you can get your palette engraved with your name or message and I love that idea especially if it’s a present. It’s €4 extra for engraving.
Here are some looks I’ve created using it so far. I’ve also uploaded a video to my Instagram using them (@enjoyably_emma) if you guys want to check it out 🙂
Who else has gotten one? Let me know in the comments 🙂
