Blank Canvas Cosmetics: Master Series Palette One

For those of you who may not be familiar with Blank Canvas Cosmetics, they are a quite new Irish brand established in 2011. They are mainly based online but their products are available in selected stores throughout Ireland. The original product of the company was makeup brushes but they have recently branched into producing makeup products. Firstly was a collaboration with Irish model and blogger Pippa O'Conner, to produce the very successful Pippa Palette. Now they have launched what suggests to be a series of own brand eye shadow palettes. Having tried Palette One myself, I cannot wait to see what is yet to come! I own one face brush from the brand, the F21, and it is such good quality and so dense. I would highly recommend trying some of their brushes. The brand has a close association with many bloggers and Youtubers such as TheMakeupChair

So now onto the palette. Straight up, I love it!  It is the perfect neutral eye shadow palette filled with warm wearable colours. There are 11 velvety matte shades,and one shimmery highlight. The palette also comes with a vegan friendly double ended E40/41 Tapered Crease Blender/Smudger,which itself would retail at €11.99. The full palette costs € 34.99, which is great value for the quality of these eye shadows when you consider that the Urban Decay Naked palettes retail at € 46.00. 

These colours could easily be worn during the day or darkened and smoked out to create a night time look. The colour Corruption is actually not black,but rather a very dark brown. As these colours are so pigmented, you would need to be light handed in applying them, but they are so easily built up to a richer deeper colour. They are also great to last the day when applied on top of a primer. 
The brushes are also of great synthetic quality,however I personally prefer to use natural hair brushes for applying eye makeup as I think they are better at picking up and and blending the product. 

I hope this review was helpful,questions are welcome in the comments. xx
