I’ve been dreaming about making my own customisable palette for months. The reason I’ve been putting it off is because of the cost – most of the customisable palettes on the market top £50. From the prestigious Z Palette to MAC Custom Palette, they’re all just so expensive and so out of my price range.
However, there’s a new brand on the market that’s offering affordable customisable palettes. The brand is called Makeup Obsession, it’s another team TAM beauty brand – the same company that owns Makeup Revolution and Freedom Makeup. I’m a big fan of Makeup Revolution, so it’s safe to say when I heard via the UK Makeup Addicts Facebook group, that I’m part of, about this new brand, I was like a big kid at Christmas.
Currently, the customisable palettes are only available in a selected range of Boots stores, as well as online on the Boots website. There are two palette sizes to choose from – large and medium. The large palette can hold 12 singles, while the medium palette is able to hold six. Each palette size comes in a range of colours, and can hold a combination of eyeshadow, blush, contour, and highlighting pans.
The eyeshadow pans are just £2 each, while the contour, blush, and highlighter pans are £3 each. Because all of the pans are the same size, you can create a palette that contains a combination of each product type. I plan on making a six shade highlighter and blush palette and a 12 shade eyeshadow palette.
A budget-friendly customisable palette is just what us gals on a budget need. I can’t wait to head to my local Boots to make my palettes – I’ll be Instagramming my experience, so make sure to keep an eye on my feed!
