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. There’s a few more neutral shimmers in there but I’d say these are definitely mainly bright colours, perfect for a Halloween makeup look. As with all Makeup Revolution products this is cruelty free so hasn’t been tested on animals, this palette is also vegan.
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.
