A warm, neutral matte eyeshadow palette?  Yes please! And Blank Canvas Master Series Palette One looks every bit of a perfect palette…

I must admit that after my positive experience on Blank Canvas Brushes (reviewed here), I was excited yet anxious to try Blank Canvas Master Series Palette One.  I did not want to be disappointed:)

Well, let’s get personal with the palette!

The palette has twelve shades; eleven are matte, one is shimmery and all are gorgeous:)  They are housed in a sleek, sturdy mahogany cardboard packaging with a magnetic closure.  The palette includes a double-ended brush E41/E40 Tapered Crease Blending Brush/Smudger brush which is one of Blank Canvas best selling brushes worth £10.38. Personally, I really appreciate this nice touch.  For once, I actually use the brush included in an eyeshadow palette, making the price of the palette justifiable.

Here comes the important swatches.  One swipe swatches on my moisturised arm (no primer) in natural indoor lighting.

  • Lily: a vanilla base colour
  • Goddess: shimmery champagne gold
  • Core: beige
  • Hibiscus: a warm medium brown
  • Brazen: a peachy brown
  • Carmin: a terracotta brown
  • Cocoa: cocoa!
  • Downtown: a chocolate brown
  • Forza: a caramel brown
  • Hickory: a deep brown (cooler tone than Downtown)
  • Strut: a orangey peach
  • Corruption: wenge (nearly black)

The formulation of these eyeshadows is outstanding.  There’s not a dud in the bunch!  Each one is soft, buttery and velvety smooth to the touch with excellent pigmentation.  There is a little powder kick-up but if you tap your brush before applying to your eyes, there would not be any fall-out.  All shades blend like a dream, working in harmony so you can create many looks from them.  You can have a wash of colours with Brazen or Strut, go smokey with Hickory and Corruption or go natural with the lighter shades in the palette.  Regardless of what look I have been sporting, these shades last all day on top of my usual eyeshadow primers.

I have tried numerous eyeshadow palettes from a variety of brands (for a overview of my collection, please check my Instagram) and I can say that the formulation of the matte eyeshadows in Blank Canvas Master Series Palette One can rival the likes of luxury brands Tom Ford and Viseart, etc.  That said, personally, I think the shades in Blank Canvas Master Series Palette One could do with a little more variation.  There are subtle different nuances in some of the shades which do not translate on my skin tone.  On different skin tones however, the nuances could possibly work well.

Overall, Blank Canvas Master Series Palette One is the perfect everyday palette.  There are so many looks you can create, with everything from the one wash of colour to full on intricate looks.  I simply adore the formulation of these eyeshadows!

You can find Blank Canvas Master Series Palette One retailed at £30.38 here.

Do these shades “speak” to you?  Have you tried Blank Canvas Cosmetics?

Much love always,

    Sandy, this palette has completely stolen my heart! Love how cozy and versatile all the shades are. It’s the kind of palette that can be paired up with a simple every day look but can also be used for a more dramatic and intense evening look. Great post and stunning photos!
