La Palette Nude 1 by L’Oreal Paris
Looking for a stylist!
So I did! And as it turns out, it’s a pretty good palette. Maybe a little warm for my taste, but that’s just because I’m so fair and cool toned.
So I did a couple of different looks using a few of the shades that popped out to me most and while they may not look very different from photo to photo, it confirmed to me that there are a lot of different combinations to be made with these shades. There are a lot of colors, which is fun for someone who loves to experiment with makeup, but if you want a smaller palette for just the eyes, I don’t think you can go wrong with the Naked 2 Basics palette. It’s less fussy than a palette with 10 shades, and keeps it simple if that is what you prefer.
pardon my resting angry face.
There are a million more combinations, but I liked layering these shades together. The biggest difference I have found between drugstore eyeshadows and high end eyeshadows is their pigmentation, blending ability, and lasting power. These shades blended well, but didn’t pack as much pigment or staying power as high end eyeshadows, like Mac or Urban Decay. But it’s less than half of the price of the very similar Naked 2 palette. So, it’s a judgment call if you are wavering between the two, or just simply don’t want to spend more than $16 on a eyeshadow palette. La Palette Nude 1, that I used here, gives you a lot of options, but you’ll have to wear an eyeshadow primer (this is my favorite) to make sure the shades stay put and last all day.
Do you have this palette? Are you happy with it?
