Delighted to finally pick up the much awaited makeup palette collaboration between Blank Canvas and Pippa O'Connor!! It promises 6 velvety Matte Shades, Highlighter, Blush and Contour Shade in one easy to pack palette. So what was the verdict of the Reveal Glam Squad !?
Its lightweight , easy to pack and contains the most important elements for a good makeup look day to night.
Not too sure about the colour of the box itself personally and it feels pretty lightweight when you compare it to the NAKED Palettes from Urban Decay.
On initial opening I wasn't too attracted to the colours - they appeared somewhat dull to me , however all changed when I applied some of the shades!
The eye colours I worked with were "Lilly" and "Tobi" . Blank Canvas promise that the shadows can be worn dry / wet or layered. As a Makeup Artist I love layering shades so I found the pigment easy to blend on the lid and on the socket.
For me the game changer has to be the highlighter "LuLu" . I have been searching for a powder highlighter that actaully gives a decent warm sheen and I think this is the best by far I've tried at a reasonable price!! Definitely the winner for me!
Finally the "Pipsy" and "Armour" (Blush and Contour) were perfect for a day natural look , I probably would revert to my MAC Blush in "Dainty" and BUFF Makeup Contour Palette for a stronger nighttime finish but that's a personal opinion!
At an introductory offer of €34.99 with Cloud 10 Beauty (RRP €39.99) I was happy to pay it. After all I am a #makeupaddict!
However I do think its a little pricey for the general marketplace considering for an extra few euro you can purchase:
URBAN DECAY "Naked" Palette for €46
MAYBELLIENE's "The Nudes" €14.99
L'OREAL'S "La Palette Nude" for €21.99,
BOBBI BROWNS BOBBI BROWNS "Telluride Eye Palette Limited Edition" €50.00
but they do not include the convenience of a highlighter, blush and contour shade !
Overall the palette is a true reflection of Pippa's style and I think this is captured in the palette. It is perfect for anyone who loves a natural look and it definately will be party of my Monday - Friday routine.
It is also practical!! Add a foundation , concealer, mascara and lippy and you have everything you need for your holiday makeup kit!
Looking forward to the next addition to the collection !!
