I have been obsessed with Freedom Makeup all year ever since they launched their extremely high quality drugstore products. I've tried their mono eye shadows before and I wasn't too impressed like I was with their blushes. However, I decided to give their eye shadows another go. It was only right that I got my hands on their Pro Decadence Palette which is basically neural heaven and the cost is heavenly too. This one took away any inhibitions I had about their eye shadows because the minute I used these lovely, blendable shadows I fell in love with them. There are 20 shades (TWENTY?! for £6) and all of them are wearable nudes and great for everyday makeup looks. They have everything I love in a palette. They have a great shade range, so many options for bases, crease colours and outer corner colours and a good mix of mattes and shimmers.
They also give me the freedom(cough) to mix and match all these shades and honestly I could create a new makeup look everyday with the same palette. They are so well matched with each other. Now about the quality, most of their shades are very well pigmented, soft, easy to pick up with your brush and blends quite easily without messing up your makeup which means no fallout. A few of the lighter shades lack pigmentation and I think they make for great subtle all over the lid colours or brow bone highlights. The third shade of the bottom row however was very disappointing because it didn't show up even after I swatched it three to four times. I don't know if I will get much use out of that one but the rest are top notch, especially the coppery and berry browns.
Let me take a minute to talk about the packaging because I have loved all their all black,sturdy plastic packaging all this while. It is a great size for your handbag if you want to carry it with you. The only issue I faced is I couldn't get this palette to open. It was practically impossible for me. I also ruined my manicure completely while trying but it just wouldn't open. Finally, I had to use a knife to get it open and that's how I've been opening it every time I use it. That immediately makes it not appropriate for travel but I think I can deal with that. It's my perfect everyday makeup palette!
