Sample Beauty are such an underrated brand, and I couldn’t wait to try the Sample Beauty The Reign Palette after being wowed by the Sample Beauty Equalizer Palette Volume II.
Sample Beauty can be found at Beauty Bay, and they have a pretty extensive product range. Keep on reading to find out more about the Sample Beauty The Reign Palette….
Sample Beauty The Reign Palette
If you’re new to Sample Beauty, they’re a UK based indie beauty brand and their products are all super affordable, and they’re cruelty free also.
The brand recently revamped their entire product range’s packaging, and everything now looks very sleek, and I love the whole aesthetic of the brand.
“An eyeshadow palette containing an array of rich, ultra-wearable mattes and royalty-like shimmers. Made for Kings and Queens.“
The Sample Beauty The Reign Palette is just £9.95, and contains ten powder shadows in sleek, matte black cardboard packaging. Each of the shades have square shaped pans, and the palette features a mirror inside the lid.
It’s very lightweight and compact, and whilst it is cardboard, it feels a little robust thanks to the cardboard sleeve it comes with, making it a great travel palette.

I was seriously wowed by the formula of Sample Beauty eyeshadows with their Equalizer Palette Volume II, so I couldn’t wait to try more palettes.
Many of the Sample Beauty palettes are quite colourful, but the Sample Beauty The Reign Palette appealed as it’s their only neutral palette.
It’s a beautiful, warm toned palette which gives me Natasha Denona Sunrise Palette vibes but without the purples which feature in that £60 palette.
All of the matte shades are extremely pigmented, and the shimmers perform like creams, smoothing over the eyelids without emphasising texture or lines.
Majesty has to be my favourite shades, as it’s the most amazing copper foil which looks like a liquid eyeshadow on the eyes.
Squire works as the perfect crease/transition shade for any makeup look when using this palette, and for under £10 it’s a fantastic palette. I’ve ordered a collection of their solo shadows to try, and I’ll be sure to share my review of those very soon!
