I truly have never seen anything like the Coloured Raine Book of Shades ever before, did you? How amazing is it to have a place to store 72 eyeshadow singles all together? I mean, I was so excited when I saw Coloured Raine reveal this product. I was even more excited to find out they were sending it to me! In today’s blog post, I’ll give you all the details on the new Coloured Raine Book of Shades and let you know if you need it or not.
First of all, Coloured Raine has sent the Book of Shades to me as I’m on their PR list. Thank you so much, Loraine and the Coloured Raine team! However, this post is not sponsored and I’m only sharing my honest opinion.
A couple of weeks ago, I received the Coloured Raine Makeup Sponges which I have been using ever since. Because I love these sponges so much, Coloured Raine definitely set the bar high for themself. My expectation was high for the Book of Shades, as well as their Bossy Lash Kit they’ve also sent to me and which I’ll also review.
The Coloured Raine Book of Shades is a magnetic book that accommodates 26mm magnetic pans with a full-sized mirror. As I said before, you can store up to 72 eyeshadow shades in here! Why carry multiple palettes when you only need one book that holds up to 72 shades?
The Book of Shades retails for $42 and is available on the Coloured Raine website. By the way, Coloured Raine is a cruelty-free makeup brand and most of its products are Vegan, Paraben Free, and Gluten-Free too.
Coloured Raine Book of Shades
First of all, I really love the look of the Book of Shades. It’s very minimal because of the black and white vibes but with a gorgeous pop of color on the eyes. I really love the high quality of the picture as well as how it’s a beautiful close-up picture.
The Book of Shades is actually pretty heavy because of the super solid construction. I love this because I’m 100% sure this will keep my shadows safe. I don’t always have so much trust in my other magnetic palettes so I actually really like the steadiness.
It would be a bit heavy to take this beauty with you in your suitcase or handbag on a trip though, just so you know. At the same time, I wouldn’t be afraid to put this in my suitcase because it can definitely handle some bumps.
The thickness of the Coloured Raine Book of Shades
Here’s an actual look of the shade of the Book of Shades, as you can tell it’s definitely pretty thick and literally looking like a book.
The inside of the Coloured Raine Book of Shades
The inside is very sleek and includes a mirror, plastic overlays and sweet messages from Loraine. I’m not spoiling the things she wrote in the book, because I want you to see them for yourself. 🙂
I’m pretty sure this Book of Shades is perfect for MUA’s since you can store a lot of shades in here, you’ll have a mirror and it’s so solid. But also perfect for beauty lovers who own a lot of single shadows like me. I don’t even have that many single shadows to put in this palette actually, which is a good reason to buy more right?
For reference, I own a couple of Colourpop, Kylie Cosmetics, and Anastasia Beverly Hills single shadows which all fit into this organizer. This means you don’t only have to buy Coloured Raine single shadows for them to fit into the Book of Shades.
If you’re looking for a great way to store your eyeshadow singles, I would definitely recommend the Book of Shades. You don’t need multiple magnetic palettes to store all your single shadows and the solid construction is everything you need to make sure your shadows are 100% safe. The price of the Book of Shades is very reasonable considering the quality you get as well.
If I convinced you to buy the Book of Shades, you maybe want to check out the Coloured Raine eyeshadow singles as well over here. Beautiful shades to fill up the Book of Shades! I mean, we now have enough space to buy new single shadows. 🙂
What do you think of this Coloured Raine Book of Shades? Do you need one in your life?
This palette is so cool and interesting. The design and packaging is gorgeous – I’m totally looking into this! Thanks for sharing x
Right?! It’s super special in my opinion. Thank you!!
This is a pretty cool concept ! 72 is a lot of storage for shadows !
It’s a lot! I have space left and I’m pretty much an eyeshadow hoarder so that says enough lol!
This is a gorgeous holder for singles! I like the thought of being able to store nearly all my singles in one place!
It truly is stunning and so great for storing lots of single shadows!
I’m like you in that I have a bunch of single shades running around loose in my makeup bag. This is the perfect place to store them all. Although I have to admit, I would want to fill the entire thing up so there were no empty spaces. Which might not be so nice to my budget. Lol. I love the design and packaging though, and I will certainly never need to buy another case for shadows.
Totally get you, I really want to fill in all the empty spaces like right now but that’s definitely not good for my budget lol. However, I just really love how much space I have with this organizer and I probably don’t need another organizer ever again (if I don’t fill it too quickly haha).
I just received my book 2 days ago. It is super sturdy and absolutely stunning. However, mine has a really, really strong sweet chemical/glue smell to it. Is this normal? I’m actually hesitant to put my eyeshadows in it, as they may pick up that scent and then I will be using them on my sensitive eyes.
Oh no! I don’t think that strong smell is 100% normal, I didn’t experience it when I just got it. I just smelled again and I don’t notice any chemical/glue smell. I would recommend sending an email to their customer service to make sure it’s okay to use it!
Can someone please tell me whether KKW Beauty eyeshadow pans will fit into this organizer? Can’t seem to find their pan sizes anywhere. The only retailer that sells this in my country has a no returns policy and since 90% of my shadows are KKW I need to know before I purchase. Thank you!
The KKW Beauty eyeshadow pans will fit into this organizer! 🙂
