Palettes, palettes, palettes.
Can a girl ever have enough? Nah!
You all know by now my obsession with eyeshadows and what's better than having a nice set of colours that can transform your look day to night all compact together ready to take on-the-go?
I was spamming with likes many photos on Instagram when I came across lots of Motives Cosmetics products recently, especially from youtubers who I love. I immediately wanted to try this brand and I have been lucky enough to be discovered by Rebecca, Motives Distributor and was lovely enough to send me the Mavens Element* palette to review. As always, you know I am pretty brutal with my picks and I would only feature on here stuff that I found to be genuinely awesome.
The Price : £28.75
The Packaging : Really sleek. It comes in a nice black packaging with a secure closure. It feels really sturdy and not gonna lie - I dropped this a couple of times because I have butterfingers and it still looks perfect. It comes with a brush that works alright but I prefer using my Sigma or Mac brushes as always. HashtagBrushSnob much?
It's really lightweight so you can just carry it with you anywhere if you're really busy and do your makeup out and about.
The Eyeshadows : My oh my. First of all, they're BIG. Lots of stuff to play with. Second, they're pigmented and really soft. I love the quality and how easy they're to blend! What I love even more? The choice of colours - versatile, for every skin type and every woman on the planet. Girl, you have everything you need in here to go from smokey goddess to girl-next-door. The perfect highlights, the crease/blending shades which are on point and the dark shadows are all you need for a smokey look or pop of colour.
Final Thoughts : I - AM - OBSESSED. I photographed this the day it arrived in the post so that I could use it straight away. I feel bad for neglecting my other palettes lately but how can I say No to this beauty? It is everything I look for in a palette and definitely one to get during these holidays - either for yourself or to gift to someone else (and what a gift!).You definitely get good value for your money which is what we all look for in a beauty product.
The Swatches :
Nice variety of shades
The only thing is - since it's not a brand as big or popular as some
giants suchs as MAC, people may avoid spending £20+ on it but it's really worth a try.
