“ Brand: Beauty Factories / Type: Eye Shadow / Suitable for: Eye „
I brought this palette of eyeshadows after reading a review on here about it and then checking out some You Tube clips that mentioned it and showed some techniques for getting the most out of the palette.
I paid £17.50 with postage for the palette and that is brill value for such good quality eyeshadows in so many different colours. I'm quite experimental with my make up so out of the 120 colours there are only about 10 - 14 that I KNOW I won't wear and that's not because they're naff colours but they are just that they wouldn't suit my colouring.
I love how the eyeshadows are laid out because all the similar shades are together as you can see above. That makes it easy to see what colour you want at a glance and also it lets you see how the different shades will go with each other.
The eyeshadows are all brill quality, they go on smooth using my usual brush and applicators and they are all very easy to blend to achieve the look I am after. I am very impressed with how well the eyeshadows last too and even after wearing it for the whole day there is very little creasing.
Some of the colours fade quicker than others but this is the same with any range of eyeshadows you buy. The pinks hardly fade at all but I think the green shades are a bit less long lasting as far as the colour goes.
They can also be used as an eyeliner if you use a thin damp brush to apply the eyeshadows along your eyelash line. The eyeshadow lasts well then too and doesn't smudge or fade over the day.
For the price I reckon these are brill eyeshadows and when this palette is running down I'll deffo buy another one. I'm lucky that I will get to use most of the shades because the other reviewer has been put off buying the palette again because the colours don't all suit her. That's a shame but it will happen with any multi colour palette you buy so you've just got to take a chance the first time and hope the majority of shades will suit you.
120 Pro Eyeshadow Palette
I am a great lover in all things makeup and when I saw this palette on various YouTube makeup video's I thought to myself I don't have you, I must have you!
It is a palette of 120 eyeshadow's ranging from shimmer's to matte in every colour of the rainbow and great for absolutely any occasion. I said to myself I would never have to buy another eyeshadow again... (she says).
I bought this from Beauties Factory, who manufacture quality cosmetics and pride themselves with excellent customer services. Beauties Factory are one of the most popular beauty and nail art accessories sellers in the world, they sell everything from palette's of all kinds (blush, eyeshadow, lips etc), nail accessories and more.
This is a full set of 120 colour eyeshadows in one easy palette, it is brilliant for travel as you have ever possible colour you could ever want in one easy compartment.
As the palette includes matte and shimmer colours, it is great for transforming or matching your look to our outfit with ease.
Inside the palette it is divided into two layers with the eyeshadows's in circle pans. The colours last all day and night and are very pigmented.
The ingredients use are as follows: Eyeshadow ingredients : Talcum Powder, Kaolin, Mica Powder, Magnesium Stearate, Titanium White Powder, Colorant and Pearl Lustre Pigment.
The case measures 22.7cm x 15cm x 1.7cm
When I bought this palette it didn't come with any eyeshadow brushes but you can use any of your own brushes. Now though if you purchase the palette it comes with a free set so you have everything you need to get started.
Apply to the eyelid like you would any other eyeshadow, blend and mix to create a great unique look.
The texture of these eyeshadow's feel silky and so soft even when applied to the eye. There are no gritty particles that can cause irritation. Even the shimmer/glitter ones feel soft with no gritty parts.
The packaging itself looks nice as palettes come; it comes in a shiny black palette. The outer packaging it a white box that can be recycled with bubble wrap covering the palette.
When it arrives it comes in a thick brown bubble wrap envelope so it is greatly protected while in transport.
When you open the palette up there is a sheet of bubble wrap and each part is covered with a separate plastic sheet to stop eyeshadow's falling out onto one another.
The colours in this palette are very pigmented and vibrate; you will have no trouble what so ever in creating a dramatic, classic, wedding, work, party etc makeup look for any occasion. I will go through every colour one by one:

I find with some of the matte eyeshadow's they can feel a little chalky but still feels soft at the same time. Also beware you may experience fallout with theses but you get fallout with any eyeshadow's you may use.
They are very easy to blend and you will find it minimal effort to get the look your after.
I have used theses colours for day, evening and night and I have to say they last all day, which is amazing. They don't sit into my crease as I have a hooded eye I find some eyeshadow's do unless I wear a good eye primer. They are vibrant and make your eyes stand out so well.
When I am going out for the night and I create a smoky look with a dark green shimmer and black eyeliner I feel very dresses for the part and it sets the whole outfit and look that I am after.
Also while wearing all day and night they are very easy to remove. Soak your eye makeup remove on a cotton pad and press onto the eye area for a few minutes before wiping away.
Because there are so many of the eyeshadow's they really will last you a long time, there will be eyeshadow's you find you may not ever use like for me I can't see me wearing the bright orange colours but it is there if I ever need it.
~Price and Where to Buy~

I would defiantly recommend this palette but I don't think I will purchase again just for the fact that I am wearing only the colours I like and there will many I don't even use so to keep purchasing seems a little waste of money.
