Amazing Primark ABH Norvina Palette Dupe (Violet Mist Palette)



So in my primark eyeshadow haul post, I showed off this potential ABH dupe as one of my finds. ABH is my all-time favourite eyeshadow brand and whilst I love it so much, it’s pretty pricey I’m always on the hunt for a good dupe (you know me). I also wasn’t that compelled to buy the actual palette so I decided that this 6 euro dupe would be a good halfway-meeting.

To find out what I think of the palette and to see whether it measures up to the Urban Decay one, keep reading!  (Also to clarify once again as I did in the previous post, neither this eyeshadow palette nor the shades in it have names, so it’s gonna be tricky to describe them but I think I can do it at least some justice).
