Review & Swatcheroonies: FashionistA Custom Design Palette System

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.

When I attended the launch event a couple of months ago, I was given an empty palette and was allowed to choose four eyeshadows or blushers to place in it. The thing I love about this palette is that you can pop the shades in easily so there is no need to burn your fingers depotting any eyeshadows or stabbing yourself by wriggling the pan out.

I chose two neutral shades, a pink and a green - They don't really go together but the lighting was really crap in the room and there were some crazy girls in there trying to get their magnetized nails on the products so I had to make do with whatever I could grab.

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.
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.

What do you think? Is this something that tickles your fancy or will you be sticking with the more expensive freedom palettes? Drop your comments in the box!

Until next time...
