Fenty Beauty Galaxy Palette Review & Swatches

Fenty Beauty Galaxy Palette Review & Swatches

If you read my last Fenty Beauty post, you’ll know how much I’m loving RiRi’s new makeup range. She recently launched her Galaxy Collection, which included some new lip products, some multi-use eyeliners and her first ever eyeshadow palette. I really can’t resist a glitter palette, so when I saw the Galaxy Palette was all shimmer I had to pick it up.

This palette is currently £39 at Harvey Nichols, and contains 14 shimmer shades. It’s got crazy pigment for a shimmer palette, each colour is completely different from the others in the palette and some are slightly holographic so appear to be two-tone. My favourite shades for this palette are probably Meteor Crush and Space Owt, which are both pink-purple shades. I also really love the shade Midnight Bolt which is a bright blue.

I personally stay away from more expensive palettes, but I think the price is definitely justified considering the quality of the shadows as well as the depth of the pan which (based on the depth of the bottom of the palette) is quite big, meaning you’ll get plenty of use from these shades.

The packaging is also stunning, being holographic and octagon-shaped as opposed to a plain recatangle. Both pretty small/less important details but they really help this palette stand out from its competitors. One thing that was a tad annoying about the packaging is how easily fingerprints show up on the palette – almost immediately after taking it out of the box I had marks all over it – but they do wipe off with a clean cloth.

Swatches for this palette are below, let me know which shades you’re loving in the comments!

    Jupiter Sand looks so similar to a MAC eye shadow I have that was in a limited edition quad and I bought that simply for that shade, so that’s the shade I’m loving the most from this palette. But, tbh, I love the look of them all and really need this palette 😍

    Ooh I didn’t even know that there was a palette, I’m so behind with fenty! The packaging is beautiful and the shades look so out there and glittery aswell, I love it! Cosmic Ocean and Meteor Crush are looking like they’d be my favourites!

    These shades are absolutely stunning but I don’t think I’ll be picking up since I have so many palettes and know I won’t be using not if these colours! It’s such a great holiday palette x

    Ah I am so undecided on this palette, as it does look really pretty, but I doubt I would use it. The swatches do look really pretty though xx

    Emma this palette is insane! I am so jealous, I NEED! I actually think it’s very reasonably priced, you get so many shadows for your money! Meteor Crush is gorgeous, I love the holo effect!

    These shades look absolutely gorgeous!! I’m not big on eyeshadows though so I did pass on these. I did however pick up one of the LE liquid eyeliners and my goodness it is so pigmented and beautifully glittery – can’t wait to pull it out for all the holiday events this upcoming season!
