I have been seeing this eyeshadow palette all over Instagram, YouTube & Blogs but I have never seen it in Australia. That is until the other day! I spotted it whilst at work and and noticed there were only two on the shelf, so of course I had to buy one! I couldn't wait to go home and play around with it! The normal price is $A26 but I paid $A18 as it was on special in my store.
I am a huge fan of nude shadows and I already own a few nude palettes so I really didn't need to pick up an extra one. Oh well! I decided that since they are shades that I wear quite frequently I will get quite a bit of use from it.
The palette comes in a hard black plastic case with a window so you can see all the shades through it. I really like the compact design. The case is sturdy so it makes the palette good for travelling or just throwing in your makeup bag! I think it will fit in most make up bags better than the Naked palettes as I always find they are a bit long for most of mine.
There is a good range of light, medium and dark shades and there are mix of matte and shimmery shades. It is split into duo, trio & quads. There is information about how to apply to your eye on the back of the palette (just make sure not to peel all of the sticker off while trying to open it... oops lol)
The pigmentation on the matte shades are a little sheer to start with but it actually gets better the more you use it. I would also recommend you use an eyeshadow primer as the shadow seems to perform better over the primer. It does wear quite well, it lasted me throughout the whole day although it did fade a little towards the end of the day, but I was already home so it didn't matter much.
I would recommend this as a great starter palette for those just starting their makeup journey or for those who want to experiment with nude shades. It is affordable in comparison to other more high end palettes, but if you can wait for it to go on special it's even better. I will get good use out of it and I really love the packaging too.
Have you tried this palette? How is it working for you? Let me know! Have a great week everyone!
