Turns out my Xmas present reviews are taking longer than expected what with the other reviews too. I’ve got another one for you again gifted by my beautiful mama.
SOSU by Suzanne Jackson is an Irish company that sell a range of makeup, lashes and beauty tools. You can purchase a lot of their products from Beauty Bay (see here). The Urban Bible palette has been made in collaboration with Keilidh Cashell. I love that the company is working with an Irish influencer and MUA. This palette is cruelty free, vegan and paraben free.
The palette is available on Beauty Bay (see here) as well as their website (see here) and retails for £30.95. I’m pretty sure that delivery from both websites will turn up pretty quickly. I’m not 100% on that as this was an Xmas prezzie so I don’t have delivery details.
The Urban Bible palette comes in outer sleeve with all shade names and ingrediants on the back. The palette has the same design as the outer sleeve with corresponding fonts and shade names. I love the design and names plus there is a mirror on the inside lid.
There are 16 shadows in this palette, with 11 matte shades, 3 shimmers, a foil and a metallic. There’s a beautiful range of colours containing neutrals and bright shades that you can mix and match for plenty of looks. The matte shadows are creamy, pigmented and easy to blend. All the rest have a beautiful shine to them and feel silky to the touch. These shades best applied with a damp brush to achieve great pigment. They can also be used as highlighters with a dry brush.
When doing the swatches, none of the shades required a double swipe to achieve good pigmentation although some do swipe better than others. The shade I immediately fell in love with was Chaos due to it’s colour that changes with the light-green or brown (check out the video on my instagram here). Aura and 1996 are also amazing shimmers that glide onto the eye. Majesty and Faith have really good pigmentation from the matte shades.
Overall, I am loving this palette. I think the packaging is unique and the shade names and colours fit with the aesthetic. It has a great range of shades with a mix of neutral and colourful that allow you to create a ton of looks. All of the shadows have amazing pigment whilst been easy to blend. I will definitely be trying out more from Sosu by Suzanne Jackson.
