Primark Amber Passion Palette : Review

It's been a hot minute since I did a review! 🙈
This post will *hopefully* answer any questions you have regarding the Primark Amber Passion palette.
After picking this palette up I was so excited to try it that I filmed my - first ever! - first impressions using it for the first time. Since then I have now used every shade on my eyes and I feel I can honestly give it a full review 💗
Let's get started! 😊

I was just browsing in Primark for the third time that week
- lolz but seriously xD
when I saw this beauty. I was seriously taken aback. I mean, look. at. it 😍 And then I saw that it was £3..... £3?!?! Seriously 😱
So, I didn't really know what to expect as I had never tried and Primark eye shadows but oh boy! This was such a surprise! 
One of the first things that impressed me was the fact that the shades have names.
I personally find it easier when products have a name, particularly when it comes to blogging or YouTubing. It's just a bazillion times less complicated when you can just refer to something by it's actual name and not: this shade on the fourth row and the third shade in - ya know?
I feel like you get a pretty good selection of finishes and tones. I feel like creating a day time look is quite limited with this palette (especially with how pigmented they are - we're almost getting there ;)). 
I love the fact that it has a magnetic closure
- seriously it's only £3
I would feel quite safe throwing this in my bag. Having 9 shades is a nice round number, it's just enough to give you variety and not overwhelming to the eye
- cut to me panicking about not knowing what to use xD
shades left to right - Sunrise, Burn and Champagne
shades left to right - Solar, Aura and Glory
shades left to right - Radiate, Illusion and Edge
I mean ✋✋
The mattes are incredible. INcredible 😅 
All of the shades are very easy to blend, I feel if you over-blend they can start to disappear so a light hand would be best. I found that the more shimmery shades were just metallic enough, but that's coming from someone who constantly wants glittery/metallic/sparkly goodness on her eyes all the time 😉
shades used :
Radiate - as my transition shade
Burn - through the crease
Aura - on the lid
Burn - on the outer corner
Radiate and Burn on my lower lash line
Champagne - as my brow bone and inner corner highlight

Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow stick in Bark on upper lash line
Benefit Bad Gal Bang mascara
Revlon Volume + Length Magnified mascara

The first look I created was a very 'me' look 😂
As soon as I saw Aura I knew I needed that on my eyes pronto!
I feel like the shades perfectly complimented each other, blending seamlessly together.

The second look was a little out of my comfort zone. I got a bit carried away when I saw the beautiful orange shades 😌
BUT! makeup is supposed to be fun, right? 🙊
Considering that the shades I used were rather bright
- and hella pigmented!
they blended easily and gave me no trouble whatsoever 💃

As someone who enjoys a warm toned palette, I feel this is a prefect match for me. I didn't have to work hard to get colour pay off, I had very little fall out and not too much kick up in the pans. Do I feel that these shades can be duped? Possibly. Could they be duped for something cheaper than £3 for 9 shades? I  h i g h l y  doubt it 😏

Overall I love this palette (as if you couldn't tell haha!)

I hope you found this review helpful, if you have any questions that I didn't answer please don't hesitate to ask and I'll do my very best to answer 🙊
Thank you so much for stopping by 😊
