Hello beauties, as you can already tell by the amazing makeup looks that people are creating on social media and the Halloween props in the stores, the spooky season is in full swing. But what if you don’t want to create a full on make up look for your Halloween shenanigans? I came across two palettes that are perfect for creating some simple Halloween looks that I wanted to share here with you beauties.

Both palettes are a from a brand called Obsession which have recently been stocked at Boots in the UK but can be bought at Revolution Beauty. They are mainly known for their single pans but have now branched out into lots of other makeup products with bargain price points.
The packaging is similar for both palettes so I decided to include them in one section. The first thing that has to be said is how large the pan size is, think what a size of a average blush palette would be. I also love the clear lid so you can see what’s inside. Plus a little holographic text never hurt anyone.
The first palette is the Obsession Be Very Afraid eyeshadow palette.
This has 8 shades, this includes 4 mattes, 2 shimmers and 2 fun pressed glitters. This is definitely perfect for those who like to create a darker smokey eye. I can see this working well for a simple vampire or witch look for Halloween.
I found the mattes to be a little on the dry side but they were workable. Each shade has great pigmentation with the exception of the shade ‘eerie’ which was quite patchy. The glitters are what appealed this palette to me and I was really pleased to find that they were not patchy. I found using my finger and pressing them onto the lid was the best way to apply.
This is priced at a amazing £5 which is a absolute bargain and can be bought here. This is a fab price for the colours and the pan size, you can definitely create and handful of looks with just the one palette.
Shades- ‘no sleep, spooked, panic and corrupt’
Shades- ‘eerie, creepy, petrify and desecrate’
Using shade ‘no sleep’ for transition, shade ‘corrupt’ to create the shape. Shade ‘creepy’ in the centre of the lid, shade ‘spooked’ under the eye and shade ‘panic’ on the inner corner.
Next up is the Obsession Be A Unicorn eyeshadow palette which is something for you girly fans out there. It includes 8 sickly sweet shades for creating a magical unicorn for Halloween or festival. Inside you will find 3 mattes, 3 shimmers and two pressed glitters.
The formula is very consistent with the palette above, slightly on the dry side but super easy to blend out with a fluffy brush. Each shade has great pigmentation and the pressed glitters in this palette are truely stunning. I had to create a look with the shade ‘immortal’ as it’s a two toned glitter.
Shades- ‘alternative, magic dust, immortal and entranced’
Shades- ‘creature, unconventional, elixir and eternal’
Using shade ‘alternative ‘ as transition, shade ‘entranced’ to create the shape. Shade ‘immortal ‘ in the centre of the lid and shade ‘magic dust’ in the inner corner and brow bone.
