Freedom Makeup London – review & swatches

A couple of weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to receive a couple of Freedom Makeup products from the online store In the package, I found the following three products.

I was most excited about the bronzing trio, since I’m always on the hunt for the perfect bronzer/contour. This is the Bronzed professional Pro in Shimmer lights (you can get it here for 5,95 €).

The packaging doesn’t seem the sturdiest, but for the price, a bit of saving on that front can be expected. I am also not particularly happy about the fact that there is no mirror on the compact. The three colors can be used mixed together in a shimmery bronzer or used separately, which is how I use them. I normally prefer the colors to be physically separated in the compact, but each of the shades is big enough for my brushes so I don’t pick up the shades I don’t want to.

The swatches on hand don’t do complete justice to the product, since the brush picks it up a bit better, but this is more to give you an idea about the colors and shades. I really like the pink shade of the blush and the warmth of highlighter, but the actual bronzer has very poor pigmentation.

The next item I received is the Pro Conceal Palette in Light/Medium (get it here for 6,95 €).

Again, the packaging is nothing special, but I like the variety of the shades in this palette a lot, since I don’t own anything like this at all.

From the entire palette, I’ve been using the right two shades the most so far – the beige for actual spots and imperfections and the yellow toned shade as an under-eye concealer. The consistency of these concealers is quite soft, so I would definitely suggest putting a setting powder on top if you want them to remain in place for the entire day. Still, I think that regarding the amount of product you get in one palette, this is really good value for money.

The last surprise gift was the Pro Lipstick in 109 – Red Wine (available here for 1,95 € along with numerous other lovely shades).

This lipstick is right up my alley since I’m trying to step out of my comfort zone a bit with some bolder colors. It swatches quite lighter than it appears in the packaging, so it’s not a dark red, but rather a light red with a bit of fuchsia undertone. I love this lipstick and I’ll probably get some darker shades for the upcoming winter months.

I would like to see your reviews or opinions on the Freedom products as well, so leave them below!

    Ja, šminka je res čudovita 🙂 Moram pa reči, da je ta trio ogromen, ampak res OGROMEN, tako da ni ravno travel size 🙂
