This is just a quick post – it wasn’t something I was planning on blogging about, but I’m so pleased with mine that I wanted to share it with you. Share what? Well! I joined a Kickstarter campaign a few months back, by a company called Crowd Colour. If you haven’t heard of Kickstarter, it’s basically crowd-funding and if the campaign hits its target total, you receive whatever incentive you’ve signed up for. It’s great as if they don’t reach the target, you never pay any money, so there’s very little risk of losing money.
Anyway! More importantly… Crowd Colour are offering something I personally haven’t seen on the market before. They produce various sized makeup palettes and then allow you to customise them with your own photos/designs/wording. I chose the medium white palette, which came with a free personalised lipstick. The Kickstarter got fully funded really quickly, so they actually expanded their goal and included an extra incentive of a matte liquid lipstick. I haven’t had mine yet but should hopefully get to make my choice soon.
Customising your palette is really easy – they have a simple system where you upload any photos you want to use. You can easily resize them and move them around. You can also add extra text to the palette if you wish. If you’re feeling a bit creatively-challenged, they do have some of their own designs you can use too! As you can see, I decided to theme mine around this blog – I have my logo, some collages of photos I have taken and a cute makeup quote. There was quite a short limit on the characters you could use to personalise your lipstick (no images, just text). I chose to simply have my blog name on the tube. There were loads of colour choices – I went for this pretty mid-toned pink. The formula is lovely and creamy!
The palette is magnetised, so it can hold any loose makeup pans without the need for glue or adhesive. This is absolutely perfect for some of my favourite loose eyeshadow pans by Mac, Makeup Geek and Morphe! The small palette plus lipstick is £8, the medium plus lipstick is £10 and the large is £12. This is a bargain, as similar Z-palettes are double that price (plus most don’t have a big mirror either, so this is great!) As you can see, I’ve started to fill my palette with my Mac and Makeup Geek shadows. Love it!
You can find more details on their website – I believe they are planning to start offering the service on there soon, once the Kickstarter has completely finished. Keep your eyes peeled!
