Illamasqua Paranormal Palette Review

Hello Lovelies. Illamasqua recently brought out a new collection called paranormal, There is a huge selection of amazing new products and colours, I want everything but I'm saving for imats so was only able to get the new paranormal palette. This palette is quite strange but has the most amazing neon colours in it but can create a very natural look if you want!

What do illamasqua say about this palette?
This unique water-resistant eye shadow can't quite decide if it's a cream or powder. Instead it combines the best of both worlds, delivering the textured silky appearance of a powder, but with the deep colour wash of a cream.

With a long-lasting hold, each shadow's silky texture allows for effortless application and blending. Choose from Paranormal (vivid cerise), Aura (warm copper), Trance (soft violet) or Possession (cool green)."

I personally love the packaging! It's Illamasqua signature weird curved square with the logo in the center. It's easy to open and close and has a big mirror on the top part that will stay standing if you want it too.

The colours in this palette look very bright but they are great for creating a natural look or for creating a wash of colour. People would usually stay clear of these shades but they complement each other more than you might think. The pigmentation like all illamasqua eyeshadows is amazing and true to colour. 

The Illamasqua paranormal palette eyeshadows have a very strange texture. They're not a cream nor a powder, they're a mixture. They feel very smooth and apply to the lids like a dream, they blend very easily and don't tend to crease. 

What I Like? 
These eyeshadows are very different from anything I have ever tried and I love them a lot. They're water resistant and last without a primer on the eyes. I like the packaging as it looks very very expensive. 

What I dont like?
There is not much that I dont like except that I think they should bring out more colours! The price tag could be something people don't like as this palette does retail for £34. 

Have you tried this palette yet? Would you like to try it?
