The lovely Cally from Cally loves asked me if I could do a The Good, The Bad & The ugly post on eyeshadow palettes. To be honest I have far too many palettes to fit in one post and I don't actually have any palettes that I would say are rubbish and not to spend money on. I mean yeah, I have some palettes that are far better than others but none that are that bad. So I thought I'd group together some of my favourite nude palettes...
Zoeva palettes are such good value, although they have recently upped their prices, but I still feel that they are a good deal. And this Spectrum palette is brilliant. It contains 15 shades, all inspired by nude and natural shades. Each shade is well pigmented, butter soft and easy to work with. There's also a good amount of matte shades, making a daytime look easy. They last all day on the lids without creasing or fading. And this palette is perfect for creating any nude eye look! I have a full review of it here.
Stila Eye Are the Window Shadow Palette Soul | £30 POST
This palette is so under rated! The stunning Rose Gold and Gold packaging houses 12 shades. Ranging from an off White to a super pigmented Black. These shadows are so soft, and by soft I mean soft. It has a good range of shimmers and mattes, warm and cool tones. The shade Kitten is one of the most beautiful shades I own - its an off White shimmery shade, that looks beautiful as an inner corner highlight or all over the lid.
This palette is more inspired by Pink hues. Does that count as Nude? I'm gonna say yeah. And this little purse friendly palette really took me surprise. It was sat in my draw for ages before I actually used it. And most of the shades are brilliantly pigmented and soft. Even the pale White is great, not chalky or transparent. And again, this contains a range of mattes and shimmers. It has no shade names which is so frustrating! But at £4, this is a total steal!
This little beauty was the go to summer palette last year. It has 9 Amber inspired shade. I have heard that the formula of these little shadows are not as good the larger MAC shadows, I haven't tried those, but I'm not disappointed by them. All are soft, smooth and easy to apply. The only shade I'm not really fond of is Kitties, this doesn't show up well on my skin tone. But my favourite shades are Cork (a medium mate Brown) and Creative Copper (A shimmery Yellow Copper colour).
I didn't name these swatches because i couldn't fit the names on!
This palette offers a twist on your every day neutral palette. With a range of colours ranging from burnt Oranges, deep Plums and perfect everyday neutral shades. I think Makeup Revolution palettes are amazing for the price! The pigment and formula are brilliant. Although the paler shades could do with a bit more colour pay off - at £6 a pop you can't really complain. Like with all Makeup Revolution palettes, there aren't any shades names.
So there are my current favourite nude palettes. Have you tried any of these? What's your favourite Nude palette?
Until next time...
