I had a huge clear out of my makeup last month and found a hell of a lot of makeup that I’ve just forgotten I own, so over the past couple of week I’ve been switching up my makeup, nearly on a daily basis and I’ve fallen for quite a lot of old favourites. One being the Younique Moodstruck Addiction Palettes. I own all 5 but I’ve never gotten round to reviewing any of them even though they’ve been on my list since I first tried them. I decided it was about time that I shared my thoughts on them.
It was probably two years or so ago that I got my hands on my first Younqiue Palette which was number 1 – Warm Shades Of Peach – I wouldn’t say that the colours are warm shades of peach to be honest, slightly though I suppose. I’d say it’s your basic neutrals palette, with a nice variety of shades. I love a neutrals palette, I can’t even tell you how many I own so I think the colours are beautiful and I adore Sincere, which is a soft shimmered taupe colour. I always reach for neutrals at this time of the year too, when it’s not quite full on Autumn but it doesn’t feel like Summer anymore so I’m very happy to have found this palette.
There’s a good mixture of colours, there’s a few light shades and a nice amount of darker shades. There’s not the usual odd shade that just doesn’t fit in the palette, they all fit together nicely and all work well with eachother which I always prefer, I don’t really like using multiple palettes I’d rather just have a bunch of similar colours altogether.
There’s 7 shades in this palette, four of them are shimmers and the other three are matte. I can’t say that the matte ones are the best quality, they’re feel quite chalky and no where near as creamy as the shimmers but they don’t feel cheap, they still offer quite a good amount of pigment, especially the lightest shade, which I really didn’t expect much from and they are quite easy to apply, they blend alright but they do seem to fade a bit, as though there isn’t much too them. When you use them with a a primer they work a lot better though, they last longer and the colour is a lot more vibrant than without. The shimmers however, are absolutely beautiful, they actually feel like a cream shadow, they’re not powdery at all and they last a lot better than the matte ones. There’s a good amount of shimmer to each, they kind of differ throughout the palette but I can’t fault them in any way.
Overall, I think it’s a pretty nice palette, it works well, it lasts alright and it’s versatile. It’s over priced but really good quality, and the pigment of each shade is incredible. The only thing I’d grumble about is the price. I know that now I’ve found it out of the back of the drawer I’ll be as obsessed with it as I was when I first got it.
Let me know if you’d like to see the other palettes in the range reviewed!
