This blog post is really late, or you could say super early! This palette is exclusive to a few of us, and I wanted to get this blog post out before the debut, so there were some reviews out there beforehand! So this is the Fire palette by MY SIGN. And I am so honoured to actually have it! I won it via a giveaway, but I feel amazing as the minute this palette was announced, I wanted it! Having the Sagittarius collection already, this was NEEDED to complete my astrology makeup goals.
Also, I hope people enjoy the pictures! When the palette was delivered, I was relaxing at my desk with some candles on to set a little wintery mood, and thought, a fire palette needs a little fire right? And it’s completely different from my usual pictures, so let me know if you like them below too!
Packaging; The palette comes in a gold cover, with a normal black plastic palette cover, with the writing on the front in gold. I really love how there are 4 elemental palettes with star signs attached! In pictures I always thought it would be a little bigger but the pan sizes are quite generous for a small-ish palette. It is quite simple, and it is perfect travel size! Downside being, there is no mirror!
Product; The eyeshadows are so pretty! There are 1 baked, 2 matte and 12 shimmers. I have to say although it is very pretty, and sticks to the theme of Fire, the lack of matte shades bothers me. It leaves transition colours to a peach-red colour and a chocolate colour, and I really wish one of the orange shades was matte, as they would make a better transition! Some colours are definitely a lot more shimmery compared to others which are kind of encouraging? But the lack of mattes upset me a little! Side Note: I also felt the palette had a smell? Not a bad smell, but smelt kind of flowery? I’m unaware if it was intentional, but I could smell a very flowery smell? If you know, tell me below!
The pigmentation is AMAZING. The baked eyeshadow (the white) had me speechless because it is so stunning and acts as a good highlighter too. The colours were easy to blend, but I felt like they were too easy to blend making it redundant? I felt colours mixed together with a little too easy, so needed to be built upon, and blended lightly! I found it extremely hard to create or think of a look, and feel I am not that adventurous, but you learn by playing. I believe this palette would go great with the Soph X palette, as the shimmers would go great over some of her matte shades.

Price; As far as I’m aware this palette will be £6, and for 15 eyeshadows, that’s amazing! There are 4 different palettes you can get, and even though I am Sagittarius, I will most likely be buying the other 3 palettes myself hopefully! With my birthday being on Friday (24th), I may be lucky to actually get my hands on them after then!
Overall, I am actually really happy with this palette. I feel it’s very personal to me, and with the Christmas season coming up, the gold shimmers will be my BEST friend! I wish there were more red-burgundy tones also, but I also feel it’s a very edgy/unique relation to Fire, and it’s super hot! The pigmentation is crazy, and I would 100% recommend it.
The palettes have been announced to release on the 22nd of November (Wednesday) and you can buy them on the Tam Beauty website! I am unaware of when their release in Superdrug will be, but be sure to follow the brand on Instagram to stay updated, and see the other palettes!
