Beauty Bay EYN Bright Matte Palette Review

Well well well, here we are again with another Beauty Bay product because it wasn't long ago that I reviewed the new at the time Going Out Out palette. I feel like Beauty Bay are pulling out all the stops out with their many new releases and they are products that I'm literally dying to try, including this palette. Recently I've really ventured out of the warm toned palette stage and have delved into colourful products a lot more especially whilst I'm experimenting and trying to practise my make up. So, this is the EYN Bright Matte 42 colour eyeshadow palette and it retails for just £23 (here), yes a bargain once again! You can purchase a 9 pan and 16 pan too as well as a palette that is a mixture of mattes and shimmers so there is quite a variation. I picked up the matte one considering the going out out palette consists of just shimmers and I liked the mattes from that one so I've got good expectations for this...

As you can see, the shades are very colourful and there are quite a range - you have your neutrals in the top row, pinks, oranges, yellows, greens, blues and purples, literally more shades than the rainbow! I love the fact that the top row are your basic shades too perfect for your crease, base and adding depth to your eye look. The shades that really stand out to me are Make Them Wink, Hot Stuff & Paradise; these colours look amazing. There is one shimmer shade which is Custard Cream and that would look great on the brow bone or inner corner!

I was excited to test the mattes out if it was anything to go by the Going Out Out palette as they were super pigmented. Initial thoughts on this one is that some of the shades are hit and miss, that tended to be the lighter shades whereas the deeper, darker shades do pack a punch! They are soooo pigmented, which you can probably see from my swatches. There was also a lot of kickback in the pan but surprisingly not a lot of fall out on my face and I think that is down to the PLouise base that I used as the shadows stick to it so well. Also I found that the shadows don't stain your eyelids too much, only the pinks do a little.

Each and every shadow blended beautifully, it's not a palette that consists of shades that would completely blend away to nothing as you tend to get that with cheaper palettes or turn muddy when you over do it. They merge nicely and that's coming from someone who isn't a make up artist so it makes them super easy to use. Some of the shades that aren't super pigmented are easy enough to build up to get the pigment you require and that's aimed at the lighter shades in the palette.

For this look, I used: Drama Queen, Grape Escape, Pacific Dreams, Paradise, Make Them Wink, Hot Stuff & Hello Sunshine
Overall, I am really glad I got this palette! The shades are all beautiful and there is such an amazing range to choose from meaning you can really get creative or you can stick to the basics, there is a look for everyone. The pigment is good and each shade blends very well, I'm definitely impressed and now would just like to buy everything from their range. 

Have you tried this palette? What new release from Beauty Bay do you have your eye on?
