I recently got chance to try out some of the products from the Blank Canvas Cosmetics and I have tried these enough to finally share my thoughts on this space.
A perfect Matte Everyday Eyeshadow palette that ticks all the boxes is hard to find. Blank Canvas Cosmetics did it by creating An Art of Perfection- A Master palette called Master Series Palette One that is matte and has variety of browns, has warm undertones and blends like a dream.
As seen on my Instagram, I have not stopped wearing this palette since the day I got my hands on it. The palette has variety of neutral shades to create number of looks. From a soft day time look to a heavy smokey eye, you name it and this palette has got you covered! The texture of eyeshadow is most beautiful and I have stopped wearing my other eyeshadows because I have only been reaching for this bad boy. I was not much into browns but this is the ONLY palette which made me love browns so much. This says a lot! These eyeshadows are super pigmented and blend like a dream.
Price & Packaging: The palette retails for just under £30 and comes in cardboard packaging with a matching sleeve. There is a good quality mirror in the palette along with their bestselling vegan friendly E40/41 dual ended Tapered Crease Blender/Smudger brush worth over £10 which makes it easy to deposit eyeshadow on the lid and blend from the other side. The stiff flat shader end (E40) can be used dry/damp to apply eyeshadow. The fluffy dome side (E41) can be used to blend seamlessly. This also makes it superb for travelling. I can tell this palette is going with me everywhere.

Shades: The palette has the perfect balance of 11 velvety matte shades ranging from a gorgeous vanilla base colour and peachy tones to dramatic dark browns. It also contains 1 shimmery champagne highlighter shade. The palette is perfect for daytime natural to an ‘out-on-the-town’ smokey eye looks.

All shades translate so well on my medium skintone. The pigmentation and formulation is fabulous. The eyeshadows stay all day long (even without eyeshadow primers) which is so important. These blend beautifully without effort.
I love the fact that the shade names are printed on the palette itself and also at the back of the palette. I often lose the plastic sheet (on which names of shades are written) that some palettes from other brands come with.
This palette is Gluten free, Vegan Friendly, Fragrance Free and Paraben Free and not tested on animals.
Rating: 4.5/5 Highly Recommend as this is the Only eyeshadow palette you’ll need!

All their brushes are handmade from extra soft, high quality anti-bacterial, easy to clean synthetic fibres.
