REVIEW: NEW Real Techniques Palette Swatches

I am a massive Real Techniques addict, I admit it!  Pretty much all of the makeup brushes I own are from the Real Techniques brand, created by two of my absolute idols – Sam & Nic Chapman (aka Pixiwoo).

They’ve just launched their first two makeup items – palettes, one of which I wanted to share today!


There are two palettes in the range; Modern Natural and Night Owl which consist of the basic essentials you need to create a look!

I have the Modern Natural palette, which has 4 eyeshadows & a dark brown gel liner, a blusher, cream highlighter & 2 lip glosses which all work to compliment each other beautifully for a neutral golden eye & highlighted base.
I love, love, love the fact that this palette contains a gel eye liner – I’ve never seen this in a palette before but as I feel naked without liner, this really has everything I need to create my signature smoky eyed look, in one kit.

The girls spent time choosing and creating the exact shades, textures and formulas they wanted for the products and I can agree that the pigmentation and quality of the products are great.  It makes the perfect travel companion so I don’t have to carry around individual products, allowing me to easily transform a day look into a night look.

All in all, this is a massive thumbs up from me.  Their palettes are only available from their website ( for  £14.86 (although it’s in dollars, they do ship worldwide)

What are your thoughts on the new Real Techniques palettes? Will you be getting one?

    I've just purchased the Real Techniques make-up brushes and I'm really pleased with them! This palette looks amazing too!

    What a beautiful pallette. Perfect for every occasion. I think that this pallette allows you to create a beautiful everyday makeup look as also building it up and intensifying it for a night out. Gorgeous colours!

    Really love the colours here, and can't believe it's under £15?! Definitely worth a buy 🙂

    This looks beautiful! I wish the packaging was a little more resilient though!

    I think it's a really good idea for a palette as it includes so much! I'm not a huge fan of the gloss but like you said, the gel liner idea is really clever and I've never seen a palette include that before.

    It looks really lovely! A nice all in one palette, not a huge fan of the packaging but for this price I can't complain 🙂

    This palette looks so lovely and perfect for anyone! This may be my next investment 🙂

    I've read mixed reviews on these palettes. I'm hoping that this was a sample palette to see how people liked each product and then they will create individual products.

  12. May 28, 2014 / 5:25 pm

    This looks lovely

  13. May 28, 2014 / 5:40 pm

    Although I think its a great palette the price seems a bit much compared to the brushes (which I adore).

  14. May 28, 2014 / 6:11 pm

    this looks gorgeous, and sounds fab too – almost too good to miss out on! x

  15. May 28, 2014 / 6:14 pm

    Really beautiful shadow shades!

    They're both nice palettes, but I'm kinda hesitant to purchase them because I'm scared the gel liner and cream highlighter will dry out. That often happens to cream products when they're included in palettes because of how often the products are exposed to air.

  18. May 28, 2014 / 9:32 pm

    Ahhh love this! I own quite a few of the real techniques brushes and so far, I haven't been disappointed! Looking forward to trying this kit 🙂 xx

  19. May 29, 2014 / 1:04 am

    I will definitely be getting this palette! Go Sam and Nic! xx

    that does look very beautiful… one day, I'd like to own as many Real Techniques products as I can 🙂

  22. May 29, 2014 / 1:37 pm

    I really want to try one of these palettes, I really love that they contain pretty much everything you need for a full face so you don't need to carry loads of little bits and bobs all the time! Considering how amazing the Real Techniques brushes are I definitely want to give these a go as well 🙂 X

    I am loving what I've seen from this palette so far! I'm happy to hear that you have nothing but good things to say about it too 🙂

  25. May 30, 2014 / 7:29 am

    Wow! I think I may have to go and buy me one. I had no idea they were launching makeup! I love their brushes so I cant wait to try these!

  26. May 30, 2014 / 10:29 am

    I love the idea you have most of the makeup you need on the go. Can't wait to see the other one 🙂

    something like nicola

  27. May 30, 2014 / 8:29 pm

    The palette looks fab! Will hopefully be getting my hands on them soon!

  28. June 1, 2014 / 10:46 am

    I love the modern natural palette. I realize that as one gets older, natural is the way to go. This looks like a great makeup to try for sure 🙂

  29. June 4, 2014 / 10:47 pm

    I'm obsessed with their brushes, and this palette actually looks really amazing! I've been using the Naked3 a lot lately (so much so that I felt the need to give one away on my blog) so I'm all about the natural look right now. Also I'm always down to add a product thats travel friendly to my collection. I'd 100% purchase this!

    One of my favorite makeup brand, but it is not easy to get this brand in my country. So sad 🙁

  31. June 20, 2014 / 5:45 pm

    I love real techniques, their products are incredible for the price. I would pay a lot more money for the quality of these products for sure!
