This palette costs £15 on the website so about €21. If you want to know how much it will cost in your currency, there\’s a tab on the top left to switch the currency. When you divide the price by the number of eyeshadows (21 : 48), you will find that each eyeshadow costs a little less than 44 cents of euro and when we get to know the palette, you will find that the quality-price ratio is actually excellent.
Delivery to France is possible as well as in the entire world and the Delivery rates are available on this very page. A standard delivery to France costs £4.95 so less than 7€. I got my parcel via standard delivery in a little less than a week and everything was tightly wrapped in large bubble wrap.
The first time I took the palette out from its box, I was pleasantly surprised because it looks a lot like a flipcover tablet. It looks very \”Makeup Artist\” and what a coincidence, given that the brand was initially designed to help MA get themselves a nice set of professional quality makeup at a low price. There is also a mirror that takes half of the inside of the cover and you can totally turn the cover to the back of the pad in order to see nothing but the eyeshadows and work more efficiently.
Now that you have all admired the beautiful traces of my fingers in these eyeshadows, let us all drool over the swatches I have done following the 8 columns !
|Oh how impossible it was for me to say nothing about this column ! An ancient pink, a dark gray, a red color – ancient colors, gem-like colors. AND shimmery. My favorite colors of the entire palette.|
|Please give it up for the matte black in the middle ! Just running my finger once across the eyeshadow got the swatch this pigmented.|
These eyeshadows hold pretty well too ! For several days I used this palette with greasy eyelids, clean eyelids, with a fixing spray, without any product on, with a primer… Here\’s what I found out :
- With greasy eyelids and no product whatsoever before applying the eyeshadows : about 3 hours
- With greasy eyelids and the Anti-Shine fixing spray from Freedom Makeup as well : about 4 to 5 hours
- With clean eyelids and no product before applyting the eyeshadows : about 4 to 5 hours
- With clean eyelids and a primer : about 9 to 10 hours
Applying these eyeshadows is exquisite : they are velvety, butter like. 2 or 3 eyeshadows may prove powdery but the biggest part is not so the application, either with a brush or with the fingers is a comfortable experience.
The Black Arts palette is an excellent product in the low-cost makeup world and the quality of this palette is as great as Makeup Revolution\’s, if not better. I am really happy I got to discover and try out a new brand whose cosmetics are so good. If you\’re a crazy pigmented eyeshadows lover, this one if for you !
