Obsession Warm Up Eyeshadow Palette and You Got This Face Palette | Review and Swatches

Obsession, as mentioned before, are a sister brand of Revolution. I absolutely love their products and actually believe they are totally underrated. They’re advertising campaigns aren’t in your face and I think they get missed because of this. I highly rate everything I’ve bought from them – I’ve never had a dud product!

These palettes were launched last week – once again with little to no promo, that I could see, beforehand.

I purchased two of the four palettes which were released – Warm Up and You Got This. The other palettes consist of a cool toned eyeshadow palette (so not my thing!) and a very neutral nude eyeshadow palette. The two I bought were the most exciting of the four.

Obsession You Got This Face Palette

This palette contains setting powders, contour shades, blushers and highlighters. The perfect palette for travelling. The highlighters are super pigmented and just stunning. I was blown away by the pigment of the whole thing to be honest. Its incredible!

Obsession Warm Up Eyeshadow Palette

The eyeshadows in this eye palette have my name written all over them. They’re warm, red toned and just stunning. Once again, the pigment packs a punch. The shimmers are beautiful and could be used for the most elegant of eye looks.

As you can probably tell, I’m really blown away by these palettes. For Β£5, you’re getting more than your money’s worth. You must see for yourself!

Obsession Obsessive Lights Highlighter Palette | Review and Swatches

As mentioned in my Obsessive Eyes Eyeshadow Palette review, Obsession have released some beautiful new products recently and so far I’m very impressed. Straight up – this highlighter palette is no exception. Stunning being the word for it.

The palette is a decent size and is a metal tin (which I love). It has a marble design, which matches the eyeshadow and contour palettes. Inside the tin is a huuuuge mirror and eight beautiful highlighters.

I love the fact that this palette caters for all skin tones – from the very light to very deep. If you think some of the shades are unwearable as a highlight, remember you can use them as eyeshadows too.

The highlighters themselves are baked and are very soft to the touch. They are a finely milled powder which gives them that ‘wet-look’ on the skin. They don’t show up any skin texture either which is what you want from a highlighter.

The question I’ve been asking myself for the last few days is – is this my new favourite highlight palette? It does produce everything I want from a highlighter and the shades themselves are just stunning – peachy/golds, whites, bronzes, and pure gold – pure perfection! This palette is definitely up there with my BH Cosmetics Spotlight Glow.

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!
