My Christmas makeup is sorted with this nifty little palette it features gorgeous neutral tones from black (Obsidian), Gold (Vintage/Antique) and the Matt shades such as Rich Chocolate Brown (Wolf) and White (Stealth – Creamy Butter Milk). The black will be great for that sexy smokey eye look and it looks breath taking blended with the gold shade! The gold has gorgeous speckles of shimmer making it very seasonal you can also mix it up with the chocolate shade blending everything together like I done in the photos below with a dab of highlighter using the white highlight included in the palette to emphasise the brow bone.

Illamasqua Neutral Palette – £34

I had to use the flash for these photos as it’s been super dull here lately so it was very difficult trying to get photos that had enough light to show you the gorgeous shades blended in! This palette is super pigmented and the perfect essential if you’re looking for a natural everyday palette but can transform into an evening look by blending the darker hues! The packaging is also super pretty and compact with a mirror making it easy to travel with

Did I mention this palette is not just for eyes but comes in great for highlighting and contouring on your face or body! I have not tried this as it’s pretty adventurous/advanced so I will just be sticking to the eyes for now 🙂 

I am really happy with the results and the shadows last hours and that’s without primer as I just applied these naturally with a blending brush if you want a more vibrant look, however, I would recommend you use a primer as this will really bring the hues out giving a more bold look! 

Product Negatives:
Product Positives:
  • Nice Packaging with Mirror 
  • Highly Pigmented shades 
  • Perfect for Casual/Evening 
  • Perfect Colour Combination 
  • Informative Packaging
  • Product lasts for hours without creasing 
  • Amazing Value/Great neutral investment

  23. Gemma T says:

    Wow what a gorgeous palette! I love Illamasqua SO much, but I can’t help but think their eyeshadows are a bit too much price wise?! Like the rest of their products are all so reasonably priced compared to the likes of MAC etc?! xxx

      Ohh I totally agree very pricey haha this was the only one I would purchase as I don’t wear eyeshadow much but thought I would give it a go and like it 🙂 and yeh they are apart from the foundations 😐 I find them pretty over priced too and the tube is hard to get the product out x

  32. Wow I wasn’t expecting those shades to look THAT good on! They look incredible. I had an allergic reaction to Illamasqua shadows otherwise I’d be running and grabbing this ASAP
