Obsession Obsessive Eyes Eyeshadow Palette | Review and Swatches

I posted on Sunday about the new releases from Obsession and in particular the Matte Naked Lip Kit in the shade Strip Tease. Today it’s all about this glorious eyeshadow palette and trust me, you’ll want to hang around for the swatches.

The Obsession Obsessive Eyes Eyeshadow Palette comes in a really cool, dark midnight marble printed tin and is actually a pretty decent size. Inside is a HUGE mirror and 24 beautifully complimentary eyeshadows. The top row are the mattes, the bottom row the shimmers, merged and baked shades. I love the layout of the eyeshadows – sleek, slim-lined pans each with a trendy name printed below it. Yep, I just said trendy (I’m 31 next month, give me a break!).

There are plenty of colours here to create dramatic warm toned looks and the shimmers are pretty enough to wear alone during the day. You literally don’t need another eyeshadow palette when you have this one. There are awesome base setting colours, transition and gradient shades, smokey eye shadows and inner corner glows. The possibilities are endless with this one! Does it not just get you excited? Or is that just me?

To swatch, I used my finger and ran it up and down the pan once and then swatched down my arm. I did the matte shades on the top row first, in natural light.

The mattes were really interesting to swatch actually. I began with the neutral, light shades and wasn’t really blown away by what I was seeing but as the swatching went on, the colours got more intense, more buttery and more beautiful! I was particularly amazed by the shade ‘Rebound’ – a beautiful cherry red which had some of the best pigment I’ve seen in an eyeshadow of that colour.

I next swatched the shimmers and baked eyeshadows in the same way.

I had to swatch them six shades at a time because well, I couldn’t believe how gorgeous each eyeshadow was in its own right. Not one of them was a let down or disappointment. Each one packed a punch and just looked stunning. Each one pairs with at least one matte (usually the one above it in the palette) so it is super simple to create a quick eye look.

I’m sure you can tell from what I’ve written above that I already absolutely adore this palette. I can tell it’s going to be a staple in my makeup artist kit as it gives me everything I need in an eyeshadow palette. I may need to buy a second as a back up!

This palette is also vegan and cruelty free.

Obsession Matte Naked Lip Kit in Strip Tease | Review and Swatches

If you don’t know who Obsession are, then let me fill you in. They are a sister brand of Makeup Revolution and they have just launched a bunch of gorgeous new products designed for people from all walks of life. Like Makeup Revolution, Obsession are extremely affordable but still high quality. I got myself a few new bits from the range, including this lip kit.

Inside the pretty, marble design box is a lip pencil and a liquid matte lipstick. I went for the shade ‘Strip Tease’ as I like the mauve/pink undertones in the gorgeous nude shade.

The lip pencil is slightly darker than the liquid lipstick, so I have been using it when I want to deepen up the colour slightly. I don’t use the lip pencil every time as I find the lipstick performs perfectly fine without it anyway. The lip pencil also looks great on its own.

The lipstick dries down nice and quickly and is very light-weight on the lips. I didn’t find it drying either, which is always a bonus in these winter months. The doe foot applicator makes application easy and smooth.

In the picture above, I’m wearing both the pencil and the lipstick and I’m really loving the colour. It’s like ‘my lips but better’ and really smooths them out. I don’t find that it sinks into lines either. I wore this on a night out with a friend and it stayed put through dinner, drinks and dancing – win!
