Fashionista Customised Blush Palette Review

I have had this palette for such a long time and it has taken me far too long to write this review. When MUA released on their Facebook Page  that they were going to be selling Fashionista products on their website I was so excited. For the longest time I had wanted to create a Fashionista Customised Palette for a long time. As far as I am aware this is the closest that you can get to a MAC Fill Your Own Palette on the highstreet/drugstore. I am sure you are all aware of the MAC concept in which you buy a empty palette and you can fill it with whatever eyeshadows/blushes/bronzers you choose. This is the exact same concept but for a fraction of the price.

There are 4 palettes to choose from. A black one with Fashionista written all over it, this red one which has Fashionista written in the corner or a silver leopard print one. These 3 are all 4 pan palettes and can hold 4 eyeshadows/blushes/ bronzers or a combination. There is one 6 pan palette which is plain white. I chose to fill my palette with blushes and I also got one just for eyeshadows. In the future I plan to make more as I love the way that you can customise them and I think they would come in handy when travelling as you could create one that had some eyeshadows, blushes and bronzers in so you wouldn't have to carry so many products with you as they would be all in one palette. The palettes themselves are really sturdy and come with a good sized mirror.

Each eyeshadow/blush/bronzer comes in a plastic case which you can keep them in your pop the pans out to put in your palette. The pans pop out very easily and I love that when you put them in the palette you can still see the shade name from the bottom.

The four shades I chose were (from left to right) Rose Shine, Flush, Glowing and Milan. Fashionista has a wide range of colours to choose from so the combinations you can make are endless. As you can see the majority of the blushes I chose are pink as this is the shade that I most often wear. The quality of these blushes are fantastic; they are pigmented and easy to work with. I have been blown away by how good they are considering the cheap prices. I have included some swatches below so you can see how amazing the pigmentation is.

As you can see these blushes are an amazing quality and unlike brands like MAC these are super affordable. The 4 pan palettes cost £2 each and the 6 pan palette costs £3. Each individual blush, eyeshadow and bronzer are £1.65. However MUA over a deal so you can fill a 4 pan palette for £7 (saving you £1.40) and a 6 pan palette for £10 
(saving you £2.90). 

I am totally in love with this palette and I will definitely be getting another one I also have an eyeshadow one which I will be talking about soon. 

If you want to purchase a palette or an individual shade then you can here. (This weekend they have free shipping if you use this code MUAOCT20). I recommend that you look up the shades online as the little pictures on the website can be a little misleading. 

Have you tried these palettes?
