Back with another makeup review, it’s been a while right?
I had planned on posting this sooner however I am battling with the elements at the moment or lack there of …. Winter and limited natural daylight!
I was very recently sent the new *Ultimate Plum Palette by the lovely people at MeMeMe Cosmetics.
I have written about MeMeMe cosmetics in previous posts here and here.
To say I was eager to try this palette would be an understatement!
First impressions of the packaging are good. The palette comes packaged in a cardboard sleeve and the palette itself folds out in the conventional way. The palette is supplied with a double ended brush, the brush has synthetic bristles. I will be honest, I didn’t use the brush, just a personal preference to use brushes I’m used to, so I can’t comment on how well the brushes fair – note to self to try it next time around. This brush would come in handy for travel due to it being double ended – one side to apply colour the other for blending, it would save you from needing to carry extra brushes with you.
Saturday was the first opportunity I had to have a play with the palette.
Here are a few swatches of the colours.
There is a good array of colours, a shimmer nude, plum and purple matte and sparkly colours and the very dark black – perfect for the ultimate smokey eye.
Speaking on behalf of my darker skin toned ladies – you don’t have to apply lots of product to get a good finish, I can say the colour pay off is extremely good, very pigmented a little goes a long way.
I tried a really quick makeup look on Saturday morning.
In my household Saturday mornings tend to be controlled chaos tripping over toys followed by a trip to dance class with kiddo, the point here is I found the palette quick and easy to use the colours blend extremely well.
Here’s the make up look I created.
Being conscious of it being the daytime, I wasn’t going to a dinner party but more so a family day out (we had dreaded Christmas shopping to do after dance class!) I went for presentable subtle daytime look using the first four colours in the palette.
What I like most about this palette, the colours seemed to last well throughout the day. There was some wear however after four hours of Christmas shopping it didn’t look worn or washed out.
The palette usually costs £15 however at the moment it’s on special offer at £13.50, whilst this is a very modestly priced palette in my personal opinion you do get a good quality product for your money.
I plan to do a few more makeup looks soon and will definitely be incorporating the Ultimate Plum Palette.
Have you tried the Ultimate Plum Palette – what are your thoughts?
Thanks for reading ….
