Merry December, girls!
Saturday surprised me with an unexpected visit of the postman, and oh boy, I couldn't have been more excited, as I hadn't been expecting any packages that weekend. Having ripped off the paper, I noticed a sleek black packaging and I already knew what was inside. Freedom Makeup surprised me one more time.
As most of beauty junkies, I could give y'all ten simple reasons why Makeup Revolution and Freedom rock, but I won't delve into the details, as I'm sure most of you have already heard about those two fabulous makeup brands. With their affordable prices and great dupes of high-end products, they shortly gathered a great bunch of true followers.
The palette I'm reviewing today was inspired by earthy, natural and geological hues, and it's definitely something for the lovers of the natural look. Packed up in a sleek packaging, with a decent mirror, it doesn't make the transportation terrible if you happen to be a makeup artist (I'm struggling guys).
Looking for a versatile palette? Look no more. Firstly, as you can see, the palette itself contains two blushers - shimmery peach called Divine and light baby pink called Cherish. They're both amazingly pigmented and give a soft and girly look to the cheeks. My favourite so far is Cherish - perfect to brighten up the gloomy December days. Secondly, there's a great selection of eyebrow shadows - Bark, Taupe, Brunette and Ebony - with their extremely powdery finish, are not only long-lasting but also work just fine as crease shades (yikes for the mattes!).
Moving on to the most important part (duh), the eye shadows. Six mattes, six shimmers plus a highlighter. What impressed me the most about these is the formula - ultra powdery with the mattes and extra buttery with the shimmers. They blend like a dream, either applied with a soft brush or a finger, though I've been loving the sort of a messy look lately, hence I use my fingers a lot (plus ain't nobody has time for fancy blending). I was simply amazed by the quality of the eye shadows, they can easily compete against my best palettes such as Estee Lauder and Kiko. No creasing, no disappearing, no fall outs. The shades vary from light ivory, through pinky shimmers, ending on golds, which makes this palette perfect for upcoming party season (my absolute favourite is golden rose shade called Utopia).
Lastly, there are four lip glosses included - from sheer to bold reds. These aren't highly pigmented, but work pretty moisturising and give a nice flush of colour to your lips.
Have yourself a merry little Christmas and treat yourself to one of Freedom House of Glamdolls Palettes for only £8. Do let me know what do you think of Freedom's new releases in the section below, I might have a cheeky look at their website and you'd better too xx
