If there’s one type of palette I can’t get enough of, it’s nude eyeshadow palettes. I love how they are perfect for both day and night. Even despite trying to explain to my friends despair that there is a distinct difference between rose, gold and beige undertones and why therefore I need more or how a certain palette is a complete necessity. Therefore, when I laid eyes on the 20 colours in Freedom’s Magic palette, I knew it would be right up my street. There’s a great mix of matte, pearl and shimmer shades with various undertones.
If you’ve not heard of Freedom yet, they’re a sister brand to Makeup Revolution aimed more at the professional makeup market, so I expected great quality and reasonable prices off the bat. This palette retails at £6.00, meaning it works out at 30 pence per shade. Bargain! But how do they perform?
The packaging, as I’ve come to expect from Makeup Revolution, is strong with a large mirror inside. If I had one complaint though, it would be that it contains a foam applicator rather than a brush, but for the price tag, this isn’t an issue at all.
As you can see, the pigmentation on these shadows is pretty darn good. The textures range from more powdery mattes to buttery shimmers. Although some are almost invisible on my skin tone, this makes them fab base shades for anyone else who’s a little pale and highlighting shades for anyone who’s a bit darker. I think my favourite colours from this palette are the shimmers, especially the last two (sadly the shades don’t have names so I can’t say much more) not only because I’m a bit of a magpie but because I find the finish to work best for me. The fact that there is a great range of colours, as well as different finishes, makes this magic sorry I couldn’t resist little palette for day or night time looks.
Freedom Makeup is available to buy from Beauty Crowd and Freedom’s own website, I was sent this palette by Beauty Crowd for review but as always all opinions are my own.
