Obsession is yet another sister brand of Revolution and part of the Tam Beauty family. They are probably most well known for their customisable palettes and clip-in eyeshadow displays in Boots. All We Have Is Now contains 16 shades and a full-sized mirror in a baby pink cardboard palette with a magnetic closure. I don’t think I’ve read any reviews about Obsession, the brand really doesn’t seem to be creating much buzz now the initial hype surrounding their buildable palettes has died down. I noticed that they have recently collaborated with beauty vlogger Belle Jorden, however, I’m afraid I’m not familiar with her work. Regardless, I was really impressed by what their display had to offer, especially their collection of eyeshadow and blush palettes. All We Have Now is vegan-friendly and retails for £10.
This is the first product I’ve ever purchased from Obsession and I’m rather impressed. The mixture of versatile neutrals and vibrant pops of colours really appealed to me. I like that each pan is removable and that the shade names are printed below, although I’m not really sure what the running theme is supposed to be? I guess they’re referring to taking chances and living in the moment. The palette contains a combination of six shimmers, nine mattes and a glittered matte. As you can tell from the swatches below Zen, Star and Spell are clearly the stand out shades. The mattes are a little on the dry side but they apply evenly enough. They are easy to blend and build, although I definitely suggest using an eyeshadow primer to prolong their longevity.
The top row is definitely my favourite. The shimmers are beautiful and intensify when packed on with a damp brush. I have very little complaints with this palette. Yes, they’re not as richly pigmented as some of my high-end palettes and a few of the peachy mattes on the third row look almost identical, however, they apply easily and blend effortlessly. The palette has a decent amount of weight to it, quality transition shades, a good mix of finishes and I also appreciate the size of the mirror too.
