Makeup Addiction Cosmetics|Palettes|Swatches

Makeup Addiction Cosmetics has only been around for a little over a year and were previously known as Hair Addiction up until 2015. Since then, they have really gone from strength to strength mostly through the power of Social media platforms such as Instagram and Facebook. As a brand they pride themselves on the quality of their products and rely on word of mouth. I, like many others heard about them through Instagram and had never tried anything that wasn’t sold on a website such as Beauty Bay or even in Debenhams.

The first palette that they released and propelled them into the beauty world is their Flaming Love Palette which consists of 8 pans each one containing 3.5g of product. In a Mac or Makeup Geek single shadow you get around 1.8g of product, which is significantly less than the Addiction Cosmetics one. The other great thing about them is they can be removed and swapped around into ZPalettes. You get what I would call 4 everyday shades and then 4 more that look quite daunting, but can be used in a look even if your not very brave with your makeup. All of these are very wearable in some way or another. The second and probably more wearable if your in a rush and is my personal fave of the two. Both of them I would say are quite warm toned, so may not be everyones cup of tea. But if you have blue or green eyes, these shades would be perfect for you.

I love both of these palettes; the Flaming Love for how beautiful it looks and the shade selection in it and the Vintage Palette because those shades were made for me. Obviously not, but they are some of my fave. Especially the baby poo coloured one as it’s perfect for a transition colour. If you would like to see a couple of looks from this, them let me know. Or you can head over to my Instagram where I post regularly on some of the looks when I’m happy with them.

As far as I’m aware, these Palettes are only available via the Makeup Addiction Cosmetics website and cost £25 +postage. For the size, colours and pigmentation like this which you don’t come across very often. They are an absolute steal! If your into you eyeshadows, you have to get one. They regularly run 10% off and if you order anything and share it on social media, they will give you 10% off your next order. I think this is a brilliant way for a company to grow and expand without having to invest in any marketing as the products speak for themselves. I’ve also heard a lot about their makeup brushes, so you might see them in the future on my blog.
