I love a custom palette because of the freedom to create something that I'll get a lot of use out of and I love MAC and Inglot purely for those reasons. However, they can get a little pricey so not always great for the bank balance whereas the FashionistA version is cheaper and will be a winner for a lot of girls out there. Considering it is a new brand that has only been around for two months, they have a huge colour cosmetics range which includes 49 eyeshadows and 12 blushers. The Custom Design Palette System is the perfect way to put together an eyeshadow/blush quad that you can travel with or even a trio of eyeshadows and a blush so you're ready to go at any given minute.
I love that there is a big mirror on the inside because it makes it easier to get ready on the go and the eyeshadows are a lot bigger than those from MAC which means you are getting a lot more for your money.
All eyeshadows have the label on the bottom so you don't have to do any peeling and re-sticking business like you would have to with any MAC depotted eyeshadow.Swatcheroonies:
Like I said earlier, I had to grab any shades while I could because there were loads of girls trying to get their hands on the shadows so the shades don't really complement each other as well as I would have liked them to. All four shades I picked are metallic and shimmery but I prefer the finish to matte shades so I'm sure that I'll get a lot of use out of them, well except the pink one - I don't actually know why I grabbed that but it doesn't matter now... I'm sure I'll find a way to use it.
Overall, I'm really impressed with the quality of the eyeshadows and the palette so have no doubt that it will be a bestseller for FashionistA once the magnet nailpolish fad has died down. The eyeshadows are extremely pigmented, as you can see in the photo above, and I can only imagine that the blushers are of similar quality. If you're after a palette that you can design, then make sure you take a look at the FashionistA stand in your nearest Superdrug now!
The FashionistA Custom Design Palettes are on an ongoing promotion whereby you buy any 4 eyeshadows and/or blushers and get your fourth and empty palette (which is usually £5) absolutely free. That would mean you get a complete customised palette for £12 which is a bloody bargain compared to what you might expect to pay in other higher end stores. Eyeshadows and blushers are otherwise priced at £4.00 each and are available now from Superdrug stores or online HERE.
