INNOCENT COLLECTION PALETTE: FREEDOM MAKEUP


| Innocent Collection Palette: £8 |


I get very excited when it comes to new palettes, more excited than I should admit. 2015 saw me changing the way I wear makeup and eyeshadows became a big thing because of that, near the end of the year I'm not sure whether it was lack of motivation or that I was far too busy but my makeup took a back seat and all that practicing and effort had all vanished. So when I received this palette free with my latest Superdrug order I knew it was time to get my skills back.

Last Tuesday I stayed in my pj's for the majority of my day, decided to take some bulk photographs for future blog posts and drag out the makeup collection. I've never been happier to see a palette arrive at my doorstep; my preferred shades, a variety of mattes and shimmers and it didn't cost me a thing, whoop!? It seemed to focus on my favourite shades; red, golds and browns were my first choices, once I began to create this look I noticed how these shades were all too similar to each other. All the pinks and red looked far too close in shade to the other pinks and reds, again with the golds and I really struggled to find a brown to use to give my eye that definitive look. I also noticed how familiar the pale shades were too. Everything kind of felt repeated...You may disagree and see a variety of shades but as I was applying colours to my eyes I couldn't really see much difference. That being said, once I'd selected the colours to use I stuck to them and I was obsessed with the look I created. Just like the deep red looks I've been creating throughout winter, but with a hint of darkness, this created a look that felt both subtle to wear everyday but also had the definition I crave for when putting on eyeshadows, it's safe to say that even with my doubt on the colours, I'd created a look that I hadn't achieved before.

My head definitely in two minds as to whether this palette will become part of my staple makeup routine, it's tough competition with the Makeup Revolution Flawless palette being my favourite for the last 12 months. I tried and tested this palette to give my overall decision, the look I created last hours; all day in fact and that's a plus for any of us, especially when we apply makeup for a day at work. All shades I used for this look were build-able, the silvers & lighter shimmers were practically perfect while the golds needed a little more work when it came to pigmentation. I can see this palette being the one I use to increase my use of mattes as they were never my go-to shades until it came to this palette.

A rather confused review I know; while I'm a little disappointed with pigments & shades and I'm overall impressed once I got the colours from the brush to lid. Taking a little more work and it'll take me a little more practice but I'll continue to use this palette for the next few months and maybe come back to you with a more definite review then.
