Harry Potter-Inspired Eyeshadow Palette | Review

Harry Potter-Inspired Eyeshadow Palette | Review

Hello lovelies, and welcome to my Harry Potter make-up review! (Harry Potter make-up??? I know, right!)

I’m a bit late to the Wizardry and Witchcraft Palette train, but I finally got my hands on this beauty and (as an embarrassingly huge Harry Potter fan) I’m so excited!

For those who might not know, this palette is by Storybook Cosmetics, a wonderful company that makes beautiful, cruelty-free fiction-inspired make up and tools – you can get matching wand shaped make up brushes SWEET LORD.

This particular eyeshadow palette, as you can probably tell from the title, is inspired by Harry Potter! The colours are magical, as are the names (Bewitched, Merlin, Potions, etc). I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited to get my hands on a make up product before.

The first thing I want to comment on his how stunning the packaging is. Storybook Cosmetics really put so much love and detail into the design. It all comes in a material bag with their logo on the front (I can’t decide whether I’ll keep the palette inside it, or re-use it for storing other loose bits and pieces!) and a protective sleeve over the front that replicates the front of the palette.

Harry Potter make-up review

The palette is designed to look like a book, which I think is a clever nod to the brand name. I also received a Storybook Cosmetics bookmark with my purchase which again I think is a lovely touch.

Speaking practically, the lid is magnetic which I love. It has a big mirror on the inside, too, and that had me extra excited when I saw it.

Now, into the quality of the eyeshadow itself.

I can’t say I’ve used all the colours. In fact, I have only used 3 – Sorcerer, Bewitched and Charms – but based off these I am wholly in love. The glittery colours aren’t at all gritty which I have found with some shimmery eyeshadows before, and they are all so pigmented. A small amount goes a long way with these, as I found out pretty fast when I tried to apply what I thought was a normal amount of the Sorcerer eyeshadow and ended up feeling like a clown. Overall, the consistency and the colours are BEAUTIFUL and I definitely think it’s worth the money, especially if you’re a Harry Potter fan as the novelty of the palette adds to the experience of using it too.

Let me know what you think of this palette and what colours are your favourite ♡

      Thank you, Jess! It really is so pretty, and Beauty Bay had it on discount when I bought it as well so if you’re interested maybe keep an eye out and see if they bring back that deal ☺️

        Aw thanks for letting me know! I have so many palettes though I think I need to stop buying them until I actually start using the ones I have haha!x

    I’m not a fan of harrypotter but this is such a cute little palette! So gorgeous and pretty x

      I suppose even with stuff like this is doesn’t matter if you connect with the inspiration behind it, as long as you love the product itself!

    I’ve love to have this. Never heard of it before, maybe because its only in the UK? Im a big Harry Potter fan so this is a must have. ☺️

      No, I actually think it’s an American company! I just got it off a website that delivers to the UK that stocks loads of different make-up brands. If you’re interested in it, there’s a link at the end of my blog post to their .com site, you should definitely check it out, it’s beautiful!

    oh my god! Is this real?! A Harry Potter inspired palette?! Not that I wear much makeup but I am such a big fan of Harry potter! Looks fantastic! xx corinne

      That was my reaction too when I first saw it! I’m sure the same company is bring out a Van Gogh palette and a Star Wars one, too, it’s insane!

    I’m not even a huge fan of Harry Potter but this palette is stunning, the colours look lovely and the packaging is just wow. Not heard of Storybook Cosmetics but will definitely be looking into them now! Great post, thanks so much for sharing 🙂

      The packaging is maybe my favourite part, I wasn’t expecting it to be so detailed and beautiful!! They’re bringing out so much more cool stuff soon (I had a nosey on their coming soon section on their website) you really should check them out!!

    This palette is gorgeous! I don’t usually buy anything Harry Potter related even if I absolutely love Harry Potter, but I would totally buy this palette lol

      Ah, why is that? I’m such a nerd for Harry Potter merch hahaha, I’m glad you like this palette though, it really is just as beautiful in person/to use!

  9. March 18, 2018 / 10:58 pm

    The shades in this one are a little too out there for me so I can’t see me picking this one up but those brushes that go with it are insane!!! I think I’d think they were too pretty to use though x

      They’re so pretty but I feel the same, I think I’d end up having them on display rather than using them which is rather pointless haha!

    These look so pretty! I never thought of trying out fiction themed pallets before as I always thought the quality would be less focused on but this looks so pretty!

    • March 19, 2018 / 10:11 am

      That’s what I would’ve thought as well, but this company have nailed it 🙌 the quality is great!
