OPV Beauty ‘Gorgeous’ eyeshadow palette

Hello butterflies, hope your weekend is going great so far. I wanted to quickly share with you an eyeshadow palette that i got from OPV Beauty.

I am in love with the colour selection, let’s just say this is a one stop shop for most eye looks! It has from neutrals to a few bold shades.

OPV is a UK based brand, however they ship worldwide, they have quite a bit of products in their line. I’ve been trying to test most of these items and so far they are actually not bad. In my previous post i spoke about their matte lipsticks, i mentioned how lovely they are, so you can expect to see me collecting more of them!

Back to the topic at hand! This palette consists of 35 shades, 17 matte and 18 shimmer. It’s what i would call a mixed bag! Some of the matte shades didn’t seem to swatch very well on my skin, however using a white base will surely bring out the pigments a bit more, as for the shimmer ones, wow! They are absolutely delightful, the pigmentation is top notch.

When i saw the palette on Beauty Bay it immediately reminded me of the Morphe Palettes, however i’ll have to admit the Morphe palettes take the cake! This palette is very reasonably priced at Ā£20, and quite lightweight, so this makes it travel friendly.

Now here’s the palette i speak of, it is called the “Gorgeous” palette.

What are my thoughts? Beautiful palette and great choice of colours, but as i mentioned above some are not as pigmented as others. That i can fix by using a very good base. Many looks can be created from this palette, perfect for weekend getaways! My favourites hands down were the warmer tones, if you know me, then you’d know that i always marvel about warmer tones on my skin.

How do i rate this palette? I’d give it a 7/10, just because the more neutral shades need to be a bit more pigmented for my liking.

Do you have this palette? Let me know how you feel about it. Thanks for stopping by.
