I Heart Makeup Theme Palette: U R The Best Thing.

So we are finally, (many months later than expected!) finishing the series of I Heart Makeup ‘Theme Palettes’ and I think we are ending with the best of it!

The formula of these shadows is in keeping with the range and for more details on the formula I encourage you to read my range overview here. This post, however, is a dedicated swatchfest for the ‘U R the Best Thing’ palette.

Row 2 swatches: mattes

The matte selection in this palette is super practical with a tone range from cream highlight through to a very pigmented black.

Row three swatches: shimmers – first 6 shades

I love the taupe shades on offer in the third row. SO pretty on the eye.

Row 3 swatches: shimmers – last 5 shades

The final pink shade in the row 3 shimmers is really flakey and is difficult to work with, it is really a dud shade.

Row 4 swatches: shimmers – first 6 shades

The first six shades of the 4th row are very reminiscent of the Naked 3 palette – pink tones and very pretty.

Overall, I think the colour selection in this palette is super practical and very everyday wearable. Of the three ‘Theme Palettes’ from this range this is the one I have gotten the most use out of. Admittedly these are mainly cooler tones but I think this is a very pretty shade selection and extremely travel friendly.

So that brings this series to a close.  Apologies that I have been MIA but I hope you have enjoyed the swatchfest and I look forward to posting more frequently.

Have a wonderful day!
