FamousX Eyeshadow Palette - The Leopard | Review + Swatches.

Hello! Sorry for the absence, it's been a busy couple of weeks and I've not managed to write as much as I would normally like to, even with 5 days holiday from work!

This purchase was a spur of the moment kind of buy. I was reading one of Tattooed Tealady's Beauty on a Budget posts - here. One of the palettes stood out to me the most, the Leopard eyeshadow palette by FamousX. I decided I had to have it! At that point in time I was having a slight eyeshadow obsession phase. I saw that it was half price on their website, down from £8.99 to £4.49. I couldn't believe it, such amazing value! It was great value to begin with, but 16 shadows for £4.49, who could resist?! It's back up to full price now, but I assure you, it's worth it.

Surprisingly (for the price), the pigmentation and colour range it outstanding. It truly is, you'll see what I mean from the photos. There is a wide range of shades including burgundy, deep blue, green and a good variance of browns. It was the more unusual shades that got my attention, they are great for creating smokey eye looks that are something a bit different. I tend to go for very neutral colours like browns and greys, but this palette makes me want to try others! There are shimmery shadows as well as a few matte. You really have everything you need from dark crease shades to beautiful highlighting ones.
Be prepared for a lot of photos!

Look at those beautiful colours!

This is the little card that is attached, it gives you all the names of the shadows on one side and a weird, and slightly cheesy intro on the other.

These are the swatches, just one swipe so you can see how pigmented they are! I'll name them all in the captions and I'll bold my favourites.

L-R - Lavish, Flash, Role Model, Bare, Guilty, Pretty Green Eyes.
L-R - Amber, Wealthy, Topaz, Tango, Inspiration, Icon.

L- R - Show Off, Gleam, Popular, Dream.

One more for good measure!

 The Good.

Excellent pigmentation.
Great colour range.
Very affordable.
Handy packaging, great for travelling.
Super lasting power.
Very blendable and buildable.
Built in mirror + comes with brushes (even if they are rubbish!).

The Bad.

Not a fan of leopard print.

Not liking leopard print is a personal thing though, I find it to be tacky most of the time. Although there are rare occasions where I like it. As you can see I once again really struggled to find something I didn't like about this item.
Have you seen this palette before, would you buy it? I'm always curious to know what you all think, so please feel free to comment below, I always reply! :)

I hope you all have a fantastic week.
