I heart makeup's I heart Obsession palette in born to die- Review and swatches

Hello beauties!

 Today I am going to review an eyeshadow palette for the first time on my blog. Until recently I was not very comfortable with wearing eyeshadows on my hooded eyes but then I started searching and watching tutorials on how to apply eyeshadow on hooded eyes and since then I am hooked to eye makeup.
 Being a newbie I do not own many eyeshadows but I have bought some eyeshadow palettes just recently and I love playing with them. I heart makeup’s I heart Obsession range is one of the best choices for people who are new to eye makeup because you get a lot of good quality shades in very reasonable price. I wanted a neutral color palette that I can wear everywhere especially during day time so I chose the palette in “born to die” after that I have also bought “pure cult”but right now I am reviewing "born to die"only.
This palette contains 10 shadows and is a combination of matte and shimmery finishes. The shades in 1st row are shimmery whereas in 2nd row all shades are matte. All shades are reasonably pigmented but the paler shades are not as pigmented as others. Without any eye primer underneath they last for 4-5 hours on my eyes.
The palette comes in black plastic packaging with transparent lid along with a double ended sponge applicator.


The shades do not have any names so I am using numbers to identify them.

1st row
1st shade is very shimmery silver white shade with very good pigmentation and lasting power but it has an uneven texture. I use it on the inner corners of my eyes and sometimes on my brow bones as highlighter.
2nd is the tan brown shade with little shimmer.
 3rd, 4th and 5th are taupe shades with reasonable pigmentation and look almost similar when applied.
6th is graphite with silver shimmer perfect for evening smoky makeup.

2nd row

7th is pale pink but when applied it looks chalky white. This is not as pigmented as other shades and is least favorite of mine.
8th and 9th are two different shades of brown i.e. light and dark.
10th is a matte gray shade.
I would recommend this palette to everyone who want a good quality work safe palette at reasonable price. The palette is available online on makeup revolution and other makeup websites, I got mine from daraz.pk for Rs.650/-.
I hope you like my review. Have you tried any of the makeup revolutions products? What do you think about them? Share your thoughts with me in the comments I love to hear from you.
Bubye take care…
