Review & Swatches- Make Up For Ever TechniColour Palette

Hey Beauty Lovers,

I decided to get my act together and finally bring you my review and swatches of Make Up For Ever’s TechniColour Palette.

The packaging is very sleek and slim making it uber travel friendly.

It also includes two application brushes in 10P and 16P. The outer packing (not shown here because I threw it out already) suggests looks you can create with this palette.

Shade 04: Matte black. A bit chalky when applied as swatch but strangely enough its very well pigmented and easy to blend once applied to eye lids.

Jeune: Bright canary yellow with tiny shimmer particles. The shimmer particles are barely noticeable and looks rather matte on. Decent color payoff and pigmentation. It was a bit chalky but still easy to use and blend.

Shade 91: Matte bright green with subtle yellow undertones. Decent color pay off, blends easily, yet a bit powdery (which is to be expected of with many matte shades)

Shade 72: Medium blue with a matte finish. Nice color pay off, blends easily but also a bit chalky.

Shade 116: A matte mid toned lavender. Good pigmentation when swatched on arm but sheer when applied on eye lids. I’m rather disappointed about this because I’m a lavender junkie at the moment!! Blendability and smoothness were also rather disappointing.

Shade 00: Matte white. Great pigmentation, super bendable, very smooth and creamy.

Shade 17: A medium warm brown with matte finish. Really great color pay off, very creamy and bendable for a matte shade.

Shade 116: Champagne with peachy undertones and light shimmer finish. Great pigmentation, very smooth and easy to blend.

THE VERDICT:

7/10 for this palette.

I was rather disappointed with the color pay off, pigmentation and blendability of the brighter shades. I was expecting it to be really loud and pow but once I applied the bright shades on my lids it was rather sombre. I’m surprised these colors don’t have that pow effect considering MUFE is one of my fave brands when it comes to quality, bright and funky shades. I own a few of their bright shades in the large pan form and they are just fabulous. The pigmentation is just out of this world…so what happend MUFE?

On the other hand the neutral shades are great.  They have wonderful pigmentation and are very smooth and buttery. I also like that this palette came with two real brushes rather then the sponge applicators, which I never use and just end up throwing away, so MUFE wasn’t cheap on that. They are rather small so they work great for small details but they might prove difficult for beginners.

This palette may be good for people who want to delve into bright shades but don’t want the crazy full power effect. If your a color lover like me and expect amazing pigmentation then I would skip this one and opt for their single shadows which are out of this world!!

Have any of you tried this palette, have you had a similar experience?

Huge Hugs from Beauty Land
