The Pippa Palette

The Pippa Palette Review

......

Last summer the lovely Pippa O'Connor from Pippa.ie released a palette and I was very excited to get my hands on it. Unfortunately, whenever I went to buy it, it was sold out but I knew it was going to be worth the wait. I've never come across a bad review of it and my review will be no different as I'm utterly obsessed with it!

What's inside? It comes with 6 matte eyeshadows, 1 blush, 1 highlighter and a contour powder. This palette is ideal if you're a makeup beginner, for travelling/ doing makeup on the go {very handy for those mornings when you've hit the snooze button on your alarm & have to do your makeup in the car *wink wink*} and it's also handy if you're not really into makeup because you have everything you need in one palette so you won't need to buy much else. What I love about the Pippa palette the most is that it is multifunctional - it can be used for a natural daytime look, a dramatic smokey eye and it can take you from day to night.

Packaging: I don't normally write such an in-depth piece about a product's packaging as I don't usually think it's important. However, as I feel this palette is great for travelling with and carrying around in your handbag I thought it was important to mention how durable it is.

When I first got it I was weary that the cardboard packaging would be a bit flimsy but to my surprise, it actually is a lot more sturdy than it first appears. I got this back in April and I've been carrying it around in my school bag as well as my handbag so it's gotten a good battering but yet it remains as good as new.

I also love the mirror in this and to be honest sometimes I just carry it around for that alone. It's the biggest mirror I've ever come across in a palette so it makes it much handier than the Naked palettes.

The Eyeshadows: The pigmentation and quality of each eyeshadow are incredible. They're smooth and velvety in texture and they're a dream to blend. I don't get any fallout with the lighter shades and I only get a tiny amount of fallout with the black and darkest brown shades.

{Shades L to R:}


'K.D' - Matte Black


'Dodo' - Matte Dark Brown


'Susu' - Matte Warm Brown


'Tobi' - Matte Soft Brown


'Ollie' - Matte Nude


'Lily' - Matte White


Blush, contour & highlight: The blush is called 'Pipsy' and is a gorgeous peachy pink shade which is perfect for the summer. I don't usually go for matte blushers but I do quite like this one as it's easy to wear. It's not very pigmented so it's very easy to use and great for a quick swipe when you're in a rush.


The contour powder is called 'Amour' and it's replaced all of my other contour shades! I haven't used anything else since I got this. It works well for our pale Irish skin and it's perfect for a natural everyday contour.

The highlighter called 'Lulu' is the star of the show for me! It's a beautiful golden shimmery colour and the pigmentation is incredible! One swipe is lovely for a natural glow which is what I've done in this look {although you can't see it well - sorry about that!} and then you can build it up for a more intense look which is what I normally do on a daily basis.

My favourite everyday eyeshadow combination: 
1. I love wearing 'Ollie' all over the lid as it's a light neutral shade and I find that it helps the other shadows blend together. 

2. I then blend 'Tobi' into the crease and right up to the brow bone using my Blank Canvas E25 blending brush.


3. I blend 'Susu' right into the crease and don't go up as far as Tobi. I use the Blank Canvas E26 brush.


4. I then take 'Dodo' on a Blank Canvas E23 brush which is a pencil brush & I place that on the outer corner of my eye and blend it out with the Blank Canvas E32 brush.


5. Lastly, I place a bit of the 'Lulu' highlighter on the inner corners to make my eyes pop!
