Blank Canvas Cosmetics Pippa Palette* Review & Swatches ♡



Hi guys,

I was recently sent this gorgeous palette to review. The palette is by Blank Canvas Cosmetics and can be found here.

Packaging:
The packaging really is gorgeous. A girly pastel pink colour with embossed floral accents. As lovely as it is, considering the cost of the palette I would expect the packaging to be a bit better - not just cardboard; but then again cardboard can be recycled unlike plastic. So actually, I like the cardboard! 
(I can't believe how quickly I changed my opinion in that last sentence lol) 


Pigment & Quality:
As you can see from the pictures below, these eye shadows are very lovely when swatched. The darker colours (K.D, Dodo, Susu, Tobi & Armour) are very pigmented, whereas the lighter shades need several layers to build up. Nevertheless they are all such gorgeous colours.
These shades are the perfect shades to create a beautiful natural smokey eye.

Lily - muted ivory-vanilla shade
 Ollie - warm toned nude-beige
 Tobi - warm soft brown shade
 Susu - warm terracotta brown shade
 Dodo - rich dark chocolate brown shade
 K.D - matte carbon black shade

Amour - matte warm brown bronzer/contouring colour
♡ Pipsy - light coral-pink blush
Lulu - champagne colour highlighter 

Value for Money:
On Blank Canvas Cosmetics' website, this palette is selling at £31.63. The colours are gorgeous and are very pigmented, however I don't think I'd buy this palette for the price. Maybe £15 but not at the price it is now. This is probably because I do not spend anymore than £25+ on palettes (apart from the UD x Gwen Stefani palette, review here if you're interested!
If you like to spend a bit more money on eye shadow palettes, then I'd recommend trying this one!

I am very glad that I have this gorgeous palette to add to my ever growing eye shadow palette collection and I can't wait to create some natural smokey eyes with these beautiful shades!

Also, this palette is gluten free, vegan friendly and not tested on animals! For that alone this palette deserves the full 5 hearts!

Another thing that I like about this palette is that there is a personal meaning behind each shade; you can check out Blank Canvas Cosmetics website to see why Pippa chose those names. I think that is a really lovely touch!
.
Let me know if you've tried this palette or any other products by Blank Canvas Cosmetics?

Thanks for reading,

  5. Eh what?! That is so pricey for a palette like this and I don't even know the brand. Thank you for an honest review and the palette definitely don't worth that high price to me.

  9. Ooh I like the colour dodo that looks perfect for Autumn. Also great to find a good quality vegan palette, so many of the vegan ones are rubbish quality xx

  19. I haven't tried this palette or any by the brand, but I do like the colors, especially the darker eyeshadows. Unfortunately as I'm not a huge eyeshadow person I wouldn't be likely to get this for myself, but it's a cute palette overall!
