It was only last week that Pippa announced she was collaborating with Blank canvas and was releasing her very own palette called "Pippa". I was one of the lucky few to get a first glance and I was super excited to receive this in the mail the other day. 
Pippa O'Connor is an Irish model, mum and blogger, she is an extremely inspirational woman for all us Irish gals and her down to earth personality makes her very relatable. So its safe to say many of us girlies were super excited to get our hands on this palette.

I felt like I needed to share my first impressions on this palette and what better way then by doing a blog post. I will do a tutorial using this palette on my Youtube channel very soon.

So true to form this palette came beautifully packaged and rapped. This is the norm for blank canvas they always package their Products so well. Blank canvas is an Irish owned beauty brand which specialised in makeup brushes and they are super affordable and high quality.

So the palette cost €34.99 and comes in beautiful baby pink packaging you can get it directly from Blank Canvas . On the front it has Pippas signature and on the back a little bio on Ms O'Connor and the names of all the shadows which are named after her loved ones and pets (which I find so endearing). I love the touch of the roses on the packaging it give a very girly feel, if the pink wasn't girly enough for you :) . 

So inside the palette you get six matte neutral shadows and three face products a yellow undertoned highlighter, a matte cool toned blusher and a matte bronzer. There is a huge mirror in this palette so its perfect for traveling with. I have never tried any of blank canvas eyeshadows or face powders so I wasn't sure what type of quality they were going to be. 

To be completely honest I was blown away by how creamy and buttery the shadows are and even the face products are highly pigmented. The colour selection is beautiful and you can really achieve a lovely neutral look with this palette.
A matte black in a palette is always an indication to me of the quality of the shadows, as you can see from the swatch its highly pigmented and its super creamy. I love that BC included a warm and cool tone transition brown in this palette. 

Highlight (LULU): This beautiful highlight is named after Pippas Mum who sadly passed away and its described as a champagne colour. I think this highlighter is amazing its so pigmented and a little goes a long way, this is perfect for the top of the cheek bones, inner tear duct and under the brow bone.

Blush (PIPSY): A light pinky peach shade which is easy to wear on most skin tones as its a buildable colour. Its so smooth on the skin and has a supper buttery texture.

Bronzer (Amour): I wasnt sure about the bronzer showing up on my skin tone as I wear self tanner but I was pleasantly surprised again its a very buildable shade. Its a warm bronzer so not something I recommend for contouring with unless you like a warm contour. This shade blends out nicely and didn't look muddy on my skin.

So the reasons I would say to get this palette is due to the amazing quality, the high pigmentation, versatility and the beautiful packaging. The only thing that would put me off the palette is the price point but considering you get three face products its not too bad. I highly recommend it to beginners as you get great wearable neutrals. My favourite shadows are Tobi and Lulu and feel I will gravitate towards these shades the most. I am also highly impressed with the matte black its right up my ally, pigmentation wise.

So for all you Pippa lovers I say grab this goodie before its gone. I am very happy to have it part of my collection and I know I will get a tone of use out of it. 

Congrats to Pippa on this exciting project.
Lots of Love,
Ash xxxx
