I'd never tried or even heard of Obsession until I saw a stand in Boots. I had a lil browse and was pleasantly surprised at what I saw. I flicked through the various eyeshadow palettes and was pretty impressed with the pigmentation, especially because of the low price. The boyf remembered I'd liked the look of the palettes and bought me one for Chrimbo. I've now put it to test for a few weeks, so thought I'd write a review.


The packaging was what initially drew me to looking at the eyeshadow palettes. It's pretty simple, pink with silver raised lettering, but it works and stands out in my makeup collection. What I particularly like though is the magnetic close and huge mirror. It makes it perfect for taking on holiday with you. I also love that the shades have names which is pretty rare for a cheaper eyeshadow palette. 


The palette features 16 shadows which is pretty good. The shade range is good too, it's got the neutral shades in to suit my usual brown/bronze/natural eye look but also slightly more 'out there' shades such as the oranges. It has a couple of vibrant blues too, however I'm unlikely to use those, other than for Halloween makeup. The shades swatch really well and are super pigmented. Spell in particular looks amazing as an inner corner highlight and lasts there so much better than a lot of other shadows. The only thing I do find is that some of the more nude shades such as Defuse, Meditate and Crossroads look a lot more orangey, red when on the eye than when swatched. The shadows last pretty well, however I do need a primer to keep them on all day/night. 


For the price (£10), you really can't go wrong. They're not as creamy or buttery as some of my other more high-end palettes but for 10 quid, I can't complain. I'm definitely going to give some of the other variations a whirl. 

Have you tried any Obsession makeup?
