Review on imagic flash palette (dupe-Makeup Forever 12 Flash Color Case)

This is a short review on a product that I discovered a few months ago and wanted to share with you all. I had seen the Makeup Forever 12 Flash Color Case online , the prices were well out of my budget, retailing for £81.54 in the UK which is roughly $99.99 in the USA. I knew the palette was good as I had read many reviews and watched makeup tutorials where the product had been used.

After researching online (Ebay) I came across a product that looked very similar to the Makeup Forever Case. It was the ‘imagic  Fashion 12in1 Color Case Makeup Paint Palette Eyes Cheeks Lips Cosmetic Makeup’ however, there was one MAJOR difference, it only retailed for £7.11 (what a bargain!) so I purchased the item without a second thought and hoped that it would work well as part of my Special FX makeup. The shipping was a few pounds extra.

Once I received the item, which did take a few weeks to reach me, but I was very patient! I  wanted to compare both palettes to see what the difference was because they looked very similar. So I made a trip to my local Makeup forever store to compare the ingredients in both products. The ingredients for both products are listed below:

It’s an exact replica! Both the products are very creamy, and blend well into the skin. They are highly pigmented and the texture is the same. But why pay £81.51 when there is an exact dupe more than half the price.

There was only one con that I did notice about the imagic Flash Palette bought from Ebay, some of the colours were a little lower than others, but there was not a lot of difference. It does makes me wonder whether this was a faulty Makeup Forever product that was sold to another company because the colour, pigment and texture are the exact same. But I guess we will never know.

I have continued to use this product in many of my Special FX makeup looks. Some of which you can find within my timelapse tutorials on my blog and YouTube. Like I said, the colours are very pigmented so you do not need a lot when you apply and so far it has lasted me 5 months and I have only just scraped the top, so i know it will last me a long time.

if you are looking for an exact dupe to the Makeup Forever 12 color Flash Palette, I recommend getting the imagic  Fashion 12in1 Color Case Makeup Paint Palette Eyes Cheeks Lips Cosmetic Makeup which can be bought on Ebay. I have included the link below:
