Hey there friends.
I kinda dig the trend of drugstore neutral palettes lately. Ok, trend of two, but I passed on the Maybelline The Nudes palette since reviews tended to be rather awful. Still, it’s a start! And this palette…oo baby is it ever good.
Between this and the first La Palette Nude, these are definitely the colors I’d use the most. I’d compare the colors in the first palette to Urban Decay’s Naked Palette; warm bronzes and browns and whatnot. These are more neutral to cool-toned purple shadows, much more up my alley 😀 The one complaint I have is that the 4 shimmery shades are nothing to write home about…especially the two mid-tone shadows (2 and 5 from the left), they just lack intensity.
No flash v. flash, 1-2 swipes on bare skin. Damn, those mattes though!! I love that over half the palette is matte, and the texture is so creamy and smooth. As the colors get darker, they only get more pigmented. Not to over-compare, but this is the palette I wish the Naked 3 was. And only $15! *dies of joy*
Oops, couldn’t wait to take pictures before I swatched. #noragrets
Packaging is pretty solid btw (mirror!), and even though the included brush is rather gimmicky, I’d totally take this traveling. I need to stop bringing expensive makeup when I travel because I might lose it and then the world would slowly crumble to ash around me.
So what do you think? Pretty nice, eh? I might pick up the first one to gift to someone I lurrrvvv, or just keep selfishly even though I already have 23945083299 neutral palettes. But like, not THAT neutral palette, ya feel me?
I’ll post a few looks with this lil guy when I get some free time. *laughs quietly to self*
Follow me around! I post a bunch of blog previews and other neat junk.
