There's a lot of department store/drugstore/high street makeup brand's I like and I have a good mix of budget and mid-range product's (sadly there's only one high-end product) in my Collection.
I'm a fan of affordable brand's like Australis Cosmetics, ChiChi and MUA and I was looking on the Makeup Revolution website which I'd only heard about recently (MR is a new UK budget beauty brand) so I was looking for an Everyday / Nude palette [I don't own any of the Naked palettes] and I found this one and I thought it was pretty and the name was fun plus it wouldn't break my budget.
The #Selfie Palette is by I Heart Makeup which I believe is part of Makeup Revolution and it comes with really pretty shades, nice nude shades with glitter and a couple of matte looking one's and there's also some darker colour's for a smokey eye. This palette was the bargain price of £4.99 which is NZ$10 and AU$8.95. The palette comes with 10 shade's and a good size mirror, the packaging is cute.
What I Like about this Palette:
The size of the palette, the mix of nude's and dark shadow's and the cute shade name's.

I haven't used this palette yet because I want it to be perfect for blog photo's so I'll be swatching this palette separately and I'm thinking I'm going to make a video about it very soon. Once I've had a bit of a play with some of the shades, I'll let you know what I think of it. I'm leaning toward's the everyday shade's of which there are 7 or 8 #Trashy (Grey), #Club (Dark Grey/Light Black) and How Many Likes? (dark copper) are the 3 darker shades so I'd probably wear those for a night-time look.
The neatness of this palette is it has a different coloured #Selfie lid depending on when it's open and the lighting, it's holographic. I've tried to capture the lid in photo's so I hope you can see what I'm talking about. This palette will sit nicely in a small to medium bag (I've recently downsized my handbag for practicality) I found my bigger bag's require more content's inside them to keep their shape.
The palette also comes with a Free Eye Shadow Primer in 3ml or 5ml. It's in a nude shade so I'm definitely going to use it underneath these shadow's. I have to wear an eye primer or my shadow's wear off, fade and look patchy so I'm hoping this one prolong's the shadow wear.
Let me know if you'd like a post on affordable drugstore/high street Eye Primer's because I've tried quite a few and have a couple of favourites and there's also been some fail's.
