Fashionista Customised Eyeshadow Palette 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.

A little while ago I reviewed my Fashionista Customised Blush Palette which I absolutely love. Today I thought I would share with you my eyeshadow one. I love the concept behind these palettes as you can create them specifically for your needs. I think they are perfect for travelling as you can have all your powder products in one place which leaves space in your bag for more lipsticks.

There are 4 palettes to choose from. This  black one with Fashionista written all over it, a 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. The palettes themselves are really sturdy and come with a good sized mirror.

I really like how you can still see the shade names once they are in the palette. When you put an eyeshadow into a MAC palette the only way to see the shade name is to take the pan out of the palette or memorise the name of it which can be hard when you have a massive collection of eyeshadows. The eyeshadow pans are really easy to put into the palette and are easy to take out as well so you can switch up your palette depending on the season or your current favourite shades.

The eyeshadow shades that I chose were (from left to right)  Frozen, Nude Glimmer, Gold Rush and Radiant
Frozen is a gorgeous silver shade which I use to highlight the inner corner of my eyes. It looks beautiful and it helps to brighten up my eye area. Nude Glimmer is my most used eyeshadow from this palette as it is a gorgeous light shimmery brown. This is great for adding just a wash of colour to your lids and I often wear it to school. Gold Rush is a gorgeous brown shade with gold shimmer running through it. I love this shade and it looks beautiful on top of my Maybelline Colour Tattoo in On and On Bronze. The last eyeshadow is Radiant which is a gorgeous brown colour with a hint of gold in it. I love these eyeshadows they are all really pigmented and glide onto my lids. They are easy to blend and they last all day. The only one that I have noticed fall out from is Gold Rush but I don'r mind too much as it is a gorgeous colour.

This year I really want to try more things from Fashionista whilst the products are still on the MUA website. I'm sure I will be creating another palette as I love them so much. For the price the quality is amazing.
he 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). 
If you want to purchase a palette or an individual shade then you can 
here. I recommend that you look up the shades online as the little pictures on the website can be a little misleading. 

Have you made one of these palettes? Do you have any Fashionista recommendations?
