I know that large multi-coloured and multi-finish palettes are highly sought after in the beauty world
with many owning one of the infamous 88 or 188 palettes but what if there was a smaller high street
version that has all you need to create more looks than you could shake a tail at?

Launching today is two 32 pan palettes from Accessorize that combine a whole array of shades
with two finishes matte and shimmer (both palettes contain a variety of each finish), Lovely Day 
is the more neutral palette option of the two and You are Everything is the slightly bolder palette.

Lovely Day comes presented in a really pretty leopard and rose print sturdy cardboard case
that closes with a bright pink elastic closure which is surprisingly snug and not at all flimsy.

Although it contains 32 eyeshadow's and a mirror it is surprisingly compact and roughly the size
of a typical 12/16 pan eyeshadow kit (think Sleek Make-Up not Mac) making it perfect
for travelling with be it on your holidays or for everyday touch up's!

Each eyeshadow is around the size of a one pence piece which is pretty sizeable
and more than sufficient to get most eye brushes into without a struggle.
As mentioned this is the more neutral palette of the two so the shades are slight more muted
but there is a good variety of shades including a few bright shades.

In terms of formula the shimmer shades are far superior in terms of colour pay off and texture - they are silky
and highly pigmented where as I found the matte's to be a little chalky and weaker in terms of pigmentation but I have yet to find a decent high street matte formula truth be told.

Neither of the formulas greatly suffer from product fall out and wear best with a primer,
the shimmer shades without a primer fair for around four hours and the matte's a little less at three hours.

I do feel this will draw some comparisons to the MUA Immaculate collection however personally 
I feel this palette is more thought out and has a better shade selection but formula wise
yes they are indeed very similar.

All in all a great palette for £8.95, this would be a fantastic item for those beginning out with make-up
or for those who travel a lot as it takes up very little space yet provides many options!

Available from selected Superdrug's and Accessorize stores 16g/£8.95
