Makeup Obsession Review

A £3 contour cream I wear more than Soleil Tan de Chanel. A £2 eyeshadow that rivals Charlotte Tilbury. A £3 strobe balm I choose over Benefit Watts Up.

I own all of these and they’re all from one brand. A brand so good yet I hear nothing about. It needs some noise. 

Makeup Obsession. I’ve blogged about it before (full lowdown here), and have since become a mega fan. Let’s talk top picks!

EYESHADOW – £2 each

Makeup Obsession Eyeshadow Base E132 Pearl

E132 Pearl is a great base colour. Lots of colour pigment, it cancels out redness and veins on the eyelid, the perfect prep for your eye look. 

Makeup Obsession Eyeshadow Base E131 Mood

E131 Mood is the perfect transition shade. Pop it in the crease for a warm toned look, and everything else will blend smoothly. 

Makeup Obsession Eyeshadow E101 Burnt

E101 Burnt is a super matte red. Pigmented, no fall out, blends like a dream. 

Makeup Obsession Eyeshadow E109 Champagne

E109 Champagne is a standout among the shimmers. Don’t be fooled by its boring appearance, it is a gorgeous shade, finely milled, incredibly similar to the Brighten shade in the Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look In A Palette – Seductive Beauty

BLUSHER – £3 each

Makeup Obsession Blush B106 Fancy

All the blushers are good. Try B106 Fancy for a lovely matte coral pink. 

CONTOUR – £3 each

Powder and cream, all labelled as contour though you can find both contouring and bronzing shades in the mix. 

Makeup Obsession Contour Powder C102 Light

C102 Contour Powder Light is lovely, neutral in tone, it works as contour or bronzer in the same way that Benefit Hoola Bronzer does. 

Makeup Obsession Contour Cream C107 Light

The contour creams are fantastic. Great shades, great formula, creamy not greasy and blend to a natural-looking finish without disrupting your base.

C107 Light is a cool toned shade perfect for contouring even the palest of skins, while C108 Light/Medium is a warmer shade used to bronze. 

Makeup Obsession Contour Cream C108 Light/Medium

Soleil Tan de Chanel cream bronzer has been usurped by this £3 fave. My bank account doth rejoice. 


The best powder highlight is actually the eyeshadow in E109 Champagne. Yep, Charlotte Tilbury eyeshadow dupe and awesome highlighter. For £2. 

Makeup Obsession Highlighter H106 Gold

H106 Gold is another multi-use marvel. Lovely as a highlight on darker skins, lovely as an eyeshadow on all. 

Makeup Obsession Strobe Balm S103 Precious

Saving quite possibly the best til last, S103 Precious is a cream highlight with a blue hue. Best blended into cheekbones with a duo fibre stippling brush. It gives a gleaming glow with no glitter. 

Til next time,
