Autumnal Makeup ft. Blank Canvas Cosmetics
Blank Canvas Cosmetics is a brand I've seen so many times on blogs and youtube and every time their products receive rave reviews so I was very excited when I received a package including the much talked about *Pippa Palette (£31.58) as well as the *Blank Canvas Cosmetics E24 Brush (£6.31, sale). 

Blank Canvas Cosmetics collaborated with Pippa O'Connor Ormond to create a gorgeous palette containing six eyeshadows, a highlighter, blush and bronzer. The packaging is so cute and even though it is cardboard, it still feels durable and sturdy. Usually cardboard palettes have an awful magnetic closure but this one is great so it would actually be fantastic for travelling. 

The shades are so wearable and perfect for everyday! Initially they all look matte but a few do contain a tiny amount of fine glitter but on me the glitter doesn't really translate to the skin once blended. Here's a run down of the shades included: 

K.D: Deep Matte Black
Dodo: Warm Matte Cocoa Brown
Susu: Medium Tan Brown
Tobi: Pink Beige
Ollie: Creamy Light Beige
Lily: Slightly Shimmery Cream
Lulu: Shimmery Golden Highlighter
Pipsy: Matte Peachy Pink Blush
Amour: Matte Warm Light Brown Bronzer 

The shadows have a creamy, smooth texture that makes them incredible quick, easy and fuss free to blend. The pigmentation is great for all of the shades, they wear really well - there is minimal creasing at the end of the day even without a primer and they blend perfectly with the E24 brush. I used the Lily shade on the brow bone and inner corner, the Ollie shade all over the lid and a combination of the Tobi and Susu shades in the outer corner, crease and lower lash line.

The blush shade is so pretty and natural on the skin and the bronzer is great to add some warmth to my very pale skin but unlike some bronzers it doesn't look orange or muddy. The highlight shade looks so gorgeous too. I have been using it as a brow bone and a cheek bone highlight. It does look shimmery on the skin but it is still relatively subtle although it can be built up until it is such a beautiful, intense golden highlight. The highlighter is SO similar to Mary Loumanizer by TheBalm! Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5.

The *Blank Canvas Cosmetics E24 Brush on the website looks like it would be a little scratchy but it's so incredibly soft and smooth. It is great for laying down a base colour, blending eyeshadow along the lower lash line and apply my brow bone highlight. For the price, the brush is fantastic and I can't recommend it enough. Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5.

Overall, I think this palette is a perfect all round palette and the quality is amazing! The shadows are pigmented, smooth, creamy and easy to blend and wear well throughout the day. I love all of the shades and they are great for everyday wear. The blush, highlight and bronzer are also a nice addition to the palette - especially the highlighter which is such a close dupe to Mary Loumanizer by TheBalm. The only negative I have is that a couple of the eyeshadows are a bit powdery/chalky but other than that it's amazing! The brush is also great, super affordable and I cannot recommend these products enough.

  5. One can never have too much of neutral eyeshadow palettes :) Loving the color selection in this one and the fact it has a blush/bronzer/trio included, as well. Unfortunately, I've never tried anything by the brand.


  6. The shades are so pretty, but that packaging is awful for a £30 palette! Such pretty shades though xx

  7. Pippa is an Irish blogger that I've known for some time now so it's great to see she created such a fab palette. The shades are gorgeous x
