Pippa Palette

Well known Irish blogger and model Pippa O’Connor has teamed up with Blank Canvas Cosmetics to create The Pippa Palette, a handy little palette containing six shadows and three powders for face.

This looks like a nice palette, and a particularly good one for makeup newbies or those who like everyday basic products best. One thing I really like is that the six shadow formulations are all matte. This is a nice, practical palette which will cover you for day or evening. If you want to add some sheen to the shadows for night time, a pop of the palette’s highlighter – Lulu – over the top will do nicely. I love the fact that Pippa personalised the names of the shadows, from Ollie to SuSu to Tobi.
The face products are also very nice. Lulu looks like a really pigmented gold highlight which makes a lovely shadow all by itself and Pipsy, the peachy pink blush is so pretty on the skin. Amour, the contour shade, is representative of my only issue with the palette. It’s advertised as containing the essential face and eye shades for any makeup collection, and it does, if containing basic day and evening shades is all that’s required. I am a little hesitant about purchasing as I am not completely sure if the shadows will suit my pale skin. These seem to be more suited towards those with a tan or with warm undertones in their skin.

This is a  nice investment if you’re in the market for a basic everyday essentials palette. The Pippa for Blank Canvas Palette will set you back €39.99, and it’s available online from Blank Canvas, or from Cloud Ten Beauty.
