Make Up Rumours | Dazzle Eyeshadow Palette

This is the last in my series of the Make Up Rumours posts, and I've had lots of fun writing them too. I decided that I would try several different products to give an un-biased review on them; so for the last product I bought, I opted for an eyeshadow palette (something I wouldn't normally use). 

I couldn't really make up my mind on what I wanted to buy, they have a large array of various eyeshadow palettes including afterdark, dazzle, glitter wheel and glitz. I opted for one of the dazzle palettes in shade 3. This is more of a gold/bronze palette, something that I haven't used before as I'm not 100% sure of how these shades would look on me; if I ever wear eyeshadow, it normally comes from a nude palette or I have a plain and boring smokey eye. As a mum, I find I don't have enough time to enjoy make up like I used to do, so generally become boring and stick to mascara, and maybe a line of eye liner when I feel up to it. 

The shades in the palette have a slight shimmer to them. The shades aren't labelled, just like the palettes, but here are my descriptions of the shades. From top to bottom in the image we have a bronzed olive shade, a very pale pastel mint green, bright shimmering gold, a pale cream, and lastly a bronze shade. 

I'm really quite disappointed in this product, and I didn't want this to be a negative review. There is quite a lot of fallout as you can see from the swatch image, and they don't apply smoothly either. I can say that a couple of them are highly pigmented and some of them don't even pay off at all. You can see from the palette that they aren't even pressed in properly. I have completely ruined the palette just from swiping my finger in the colour for swatches, it's interesting how it's only happened to a few of them so you can see from this I wasn't being heavy handed!

In all honesty I wouldn't buy any more of these palettes, the Dazzle collection are all priced at £1 and I think that pretty much explains the quality. I like their lipsticks, and I like their nail polishes but I don't think I would part with my pennies for much more of their collection as it doesn't really take my fancy. The palette was really awkward to get into, you would presume that you would open from the front, but it took me about an hour to work out it opened from the side. Overall this was a bad experience for me.

  2. Ohh no D: I hate when you get a palette and it looks good until you actually use it! It's crazy that a swipe from a finger would make a mess like that.

    1. Exactly, sometimes I guess it just pays to pay a bit more! x
