Good things come in SMALL prices!

This palette by "Ess Mineral" is a little gold mine! One of the best aspects of this product is that it only cost 4 euros!!! (Which is around £3! Cheap as chips!) 

Yes I dropped the palette, which explains the broken one in the left hand corner, I'm very CLUMSY!!!
To be honest, I've never owned a "real palette" before. The closest thing I had to eyeshadows that I ever owned were either freebies from a Mizz magazine or my kids makeup set from back in the nineties. I've never really felt the need for eyeshadows... until now!  

I don't know how I lived without these 8 natural to nude colours which are pigmented to my exact liking, not too subtle and not too glaring. They apply beautifully and unlike most cheap brands they aren't very chalky at all! Plus they blend out like a charm. The brush isn't half bad either! What adds to this palette is that it is multifunctional, I can use the lightest colour as a highlighter because it doesn't have a lot of glitter in it and a darker colour would be perfect for contouring... The possibilities are endless! One colour even comes close to "Half Baked" by Urban Decay but of course a less expensive version which is great for a student like me! As a starter kit I'm pretty impressed with my little investment. 

Every colour colour is unique and adaptable to all styles. 
Look at all the pretty colours!
I recently bought the Ess eyebrow palette and a pastel Ess nail polish, so watch out for those reviews in the future! 

Oh! Before I forget and leave you wondering where you can get this palette, I got in touch with the company and they informed me that there is a website due for 2013!!! Yessss!!! *Happy me* 

Look achieved using the Ess palette, Maybelline's Long Lasting Gel Eyeliner and Maybelline lipstick (which I shall do a review on soon!!!)
Do you have a bargain in your makeup collection? If so, what is it?
