When I think of Halloween themed products I tend to think of creepy haunted houses or ones like the eyeball highlighters I did a review of the other day. However, Makeup Revolution also do a limited edition Halloween range that’s more unicorns and rainbows than ghosts and graveyards.

I don’t use many colourful eyeshadows but the slightly grungy look to a few of the colours in the Rainbow Shadow Palette. It’s £10 and has eighteen eyeshadows in it with a mix of duochrome, shimmers, mattes and a couple of metallics that have a foil finish.

This palette, The Balm Appetit eyeshadow palette, was released recently though I’m not sure if it’s a limited edition or not. It doesn’t say it’s limited edition so I’m guessing it’s a permanent line product but it’s around the time some of the Christmas products are going to be coming out so it could be one too. It’s a palette with nine shadows, each one is 1.5g each, and has a food theme so the names are a combination of men’s names and food in a mix of odd but kind of fun puns. The palette is also cruelty free.

The nine eyeshadows could be grouped into three different finishes; three mattes, three foils and three satins, though the satins have varying amounts of shine and shimmer particles in them. The price seems to vary quite a bit but I bought it off HQ Hair which have it on sale for £30.60 with the 10% off The Balm products they have at the moment. I did also get a further offer but it’s not on there any more, it’s been replaced with another. I can’t find many places in the UK that has this exact palette but The Balm’s own website has it for $39.50 so it seems a good price.
