I really rate Lottie London as a brand, and was gutted when they pulled out of Superdrug. I can totally understand why brands like Lottie London and Sleek are pulling out of Superdrug and moving to other retailers, as there’s such a massive push on the Revolution brands. Lottie London are now available on ASOS, Feelunique, Skinnydip London, Lookfantasic and Pretty Little Thing. When making a recent Feelunique order, I spotted some of the newer launches and I ordered a couple of their newer palettes including the Lottie London The Mauves Eyeshadow Palette.
The Lottie London The Mauves Eyeshadow Palette is just £4.95, and contains nine powder eyeshadows. The palette is part of a four piece collection of nine pan palettes with The Jewels, The Rusts, The Rose Golds and The Mauves. I bought two of the four, but I have to be honest, I am planning on getting the other two as I’m so impressed with the two I have. I think £4.95 is such a great price for drugstore palette, and I’m totally onboard for a more compact palette.
I feel like 2019 was the year when brands made massive, bulky palettes which I’m not sure the average beauty obsessive needs. Sure bigger palettes are fun, but who really needs more than 20-30 shades in a palette? These palettes are nice and compact, and they really remind of the Huda Beauty Obsessions Palettes which are one of my favourite palette collections, however they’re all £25-27 each. You could purchase all four of the Lottie London Palettes for under £20 which is crazy in comparison.

Lottie London The Mauves Eyeshadow Palette Review and Swatches
I have tried the Lottie London x Thuy Le Palette in the past, and I was really impressed by the quality of the eyeshadows. However, that’s the only palette of theirs I’ve tried, so I wasn’t sure if the quality would be similar, especially as it’s such a smaller palette. I think these beautiful swatches speak for themselves – just look at them. They’re even individually named on the bottom of the palette, which many drugstore brands don’t even bother doing with their eyeshadow palettes.
All nine shadows are fantastic quality, and although they do look amazing in this photo, they look even better in real life. The palette includes a mixture of matte, shimmer and metallic eyeshadow finishes, with no disappointing shadows at all. I particularly loved the look of this palette because I’m all about the cooler tones, and I loved that the four corner shades within the palette are all the matte shades.
My standout shades would have to be Tempt as it has the prettiest, foil finish which looks almost wet in the swatch. Power is my perfect transition shade for any cool toned eyeshadow look, as it’s a lilac toned browny grey which works as the perfect foundation for any eyeshadow look using this palette. I really like that you have two deep shades; Dusk and Midnight, which allow you to create a really intense evening look but you have softer shades too. For a nine pan palette, the shade selection really is perfect, and I am blown away by the quality of this £4.95 palette. It is a stunner of a palette…
