Crown Brush 88 Eye Shadow Palette

Hello lovelies, i hope your all having a nice evening. I wanted to do a post on a palette i got recently, which was in fact a bonus Christmas present off my dad. I really wanted a large multi coloured palette so i wouldn't have to keep buying small palettes for just a few new colours. I already had my eye on this palette but i asked the very talented MUA Karla Powell if she could recommend one to me and surprisingly she recommended the one i was already looking at. So thank you Karla for helping me make my mind up haha.
 As you can see from the outside it's just basic black plastic packaging, but it does feel really stable and it locks really well which to me is the main thing. It's not to large in size and i was a bit surprised when i first looked inside as the eye shadows themselves are rather small. However the colours are just beautiful...
It has a lovely range from white and really light browns to yellows, through to gorgeous greens and blues, down to stunning purples and reds, and then finishing off through to darker browns, silvers, greys and blacks. As you can probably tell from the way I'm righting, i really really love this palette. It ranges in matte to slightly shimmery shades, but if you are after a shimmery colour palette they do do a palette just like this where all the shades are shimmery. 

As i said earlier when i first looked in this palette i was slightly disappointed as they looked so small, however after doing a few looks i realised you don't need a lot of product as they are nicely pigmented. So because you don't need a lot i would imagine this will last me quite some time. I have already posted two looks i created using this which was my silver smokey eye and my purple smokey eye i done for new years eve. I have also been experimenting with the different shades of brown for neutral day looks, and i must say the possibilities seem endless as there are so many different shades to choose from. I also love how easy they are to apply, they are a dream to blend and work with, and they last really well too. I will admit i am still learning, especially when it comes to eye shadow but these are the easiest shadows i own to work with.

The palette only costs £22.99, which won me over even more. I know this may seem a lot to some but i think if you like coloured eye shadow but like me didn't have a good range, this works out a lot cheaper than buying 12 shadow palettes where your going to be doubling up on a lot of shades. Where as with this i can now do any colour look i want or need to as i have lots of different shades of each colour. I'm not sure if you can actually buy Crown brush products in any stores but here is their website, they also sell some really nice makeup brush sets that i really want to try. After the quality of this palette and service i shall certainly be making some more orders to them. Do you have any Crown brush products, if so what do you recommend? Thanks for reading, i hope you all have a lovely weekend and i shall see you all again soon x
