Buy This: Crown Brush Metal Madness 88 Palette

When BritishBeautyBlogger posted about this gem of a palette, I had to go immediately to the Crown Brush website and order one.  I love eyeshadow.  I also love eyeshadow with a metallic, luxe finish.  Put 88 metallic finish eyeshadows into a palette and you're pretty much guaranteed that I will drool over it.

And my, it is very definitely drool worthy.  At £24.99, it's very cheap - even cheaper if you buy directly from China via eBay, where these things are produced - but the quality of the eyeshadow is actually rather good.  Yes, they're a tad crumbly, and some of them are better pressed into the lid than swiped, as otherwise you'll get lots of fallout.  But still.  You're getting a lot of variety in this palette.

The colours are also more complex than you'd think.  There are some gorgeous shades with contrast reflects, some which are just ultra shiny, and some which look like powdered metal.  

As much as I'd love to swatch them all, I can't - so here's a limited swatch of four to give you an idea of the finishes available in the palette.  Most have the metallic sheen you can see in the first three swatches - some have the more toned down shine in the pink on the right.

If this palette makes you dribble with desire as much as it did me, you'll find it at the Crown Brush website, where it will cost you £24.99.  Which is a small price to pay for all the eyeshadow you'll ever need... until the next thing comes along, as least!

What do you think?  Love metallic colours?  Got this palette?  Let us know in the comments!


  1. This palette and THOSE SWATCHES look great! Might be purchasing this when I have a bit more money off Ebay - forever the bargain hunter!

    Just bought the Manly 120 Palette recently - heard that mentioned a lot, that's produced in China so might be similar quality to this. Amazing what you find if you just open your mind

  2. Tut tut I was expecting a swatch of ALL EIGHTY EIGHT eyeshadows!!! LOL

    Seriously though, I'm loving the variety in this palette. Looks like a great buy.

  3. This looks amazing!! I read about the crown blush palette on British beauty blogger (not sure) and fell in love with it I'm more of a blush then an eyeshadow kinda girl! But they seriously have some good stuff over at Crown.

  4. Those swatches look beautiful, I might have to get one of these off ebay :P

  5. I'd be prepared to bet money on the fact that if you guys bought one of these you'd love it :)

    Yinka - I did think about taking photos of all 88 colours... but decided it was a bit too far to go!
