I don't know I dare call myself a beauty blogger when I don't own any of the Naked Palettes which we all know hold the trophy when it comes a nude shadow but I actually don't like them because they are either too warm, shimmery and don't get me started on the Naked 3 that thing is way too pink for me. Even throughout the plethora of palettes available throughout the beauty spectrum there isn't really one that has really wowed me apart from the Marc Jacobs Lolita palette which quell surprise we can't get hold of. So there is a gap in my life for that perfect put together palette and even though I have made up my own MAC quad that gets pretty pricey once you tot up the figures so I was looking for something more affordable and enter this beauty from Collection.
Welcome the Collection Nude Eyeshadow Palette which I think I whole heartedly say is the perfect nude palette for me. It isn't overly shimmery and sits on the right side of champagne for me and holds my number one requirement for a palette which is a shade for my brows and for £4 it doesn't make my purse weep. The packaging is little to be desired and a mirror would have been a plus but hey you can't have it all can you, although the cardboard does make it light to transport around with you. I hold my hands up I am not an aficionado with eyeshadow and I stick to one colour swept all all over the lid most days unless I am really going out somewhere fancy that I might put something in the crease to create definition. This makes easy work for us as the shadows are numbered so it easy to create a look without trying to work what looks good on the lid, crease and inner corner etc and then you mix and match the shades to suit your needs. I have been using the shades 1 & 3 from the middle row for my everyday lid needs and then the matte brown for my brows which isn't too red or too ashy so it is just right. The consistency of this palette is buttery soft and it isn't packed full of glitter/shimmer and it adds just a pretty iridescence to the eye without any fall out, no creasing and they last a good 4-5 hours on my oily lids without a primer so I'm impressed to say the least.
What do you think to this palette?
