I love everything Halloween, especially when it comes to makeup, so when I saw this Haunted House Eyeshadow Palette on the Makeup Revolution site I had to have it. I also love the deep reds and browns that make up this palette, it seemed like the perfect one for me. It costs £10 and is cruelty free and vegan friendly so a great budget palette that isn’t tested on animals.
As with the Rainbow Palette this has eighteen eyeshadows
with a mix of finishes, though mainly mattes. There are eight true mattes, one
with a matte base and shimmer particles, two duochromes, two I would say are
foil finishes and five shimmers with varying amounts of shimmer in them.
Overall there’s a great range of colours and finishes for any look with deep
reds or warm browns.
I do have a bit of a weakness for Halloween themed things and when I made an order from the Makeup Revolution website I had to get some of their Halloween limited edition range. They have multiple liquid highlighters in skull shaped glass bottles, two eyeshadow palettes, a powder highlight and five lipsticks. There are other things like six makeup and two eyeshadow palettes from the sister brand Obsession. Also, at the moment it’s three for two on all things Halloween on the site.
I was planning on doing this post earlier but wanted to give them a proper try and the liquid highlighters aren’t in stock any more online, though it may be back. Also the other colours seem to have been taken off the website so I’m guessing they won’t be available online, which is a pity as I was considering getting a couple of others even if it was just for display, because they just look so cool.
I love all the unicorn brushes around and have had my eye on the Unicorn Cosmetics unicorn brush set for months, but when I saw their Halloween edition Heat Sensitive and Spookaliciousset was in the sale it’s even more me and I wanted it. It’s a limited edition set with five brushes (three face and two eye brushes), colour changing handles and a coffin shaped brush bag with unicorn studs on it. It’s also pretty much half price, £17.99 rather than £34.99, but being a limited edition it’s one of those sets you get now if you want it as when it’s gone it’s gone.
The fact that the set is half the size of the original unicorn brush sets definitely was a plus for me, I love the look of the full set but I’m not sure I’d need all ten different styles and I can always use eye brushes and your standard face brushes. The five brushes are; fluffy eye brush, precision blush brush, powder brush, foundation brush and an eyeshadow brush so you do have most of the basics covered there. They all have suitably spooky names to go with the orange and black colour scheme.
