Review: Models Prefer Nude Eyeshadow Palette

Hey Lovelies!

So I purchased this on a whim after seeing a gorgeous photo of it on Instagram. I can hear the collective groaning, another nude palette, really?! Yes really! I am standing by my choice as I truly love this palette. Warning, this gets a bit picture heavy. 

The Models Prefer Nude Eyeshadow Palette contains 10 neutral shades which are a combination of matte and shimmer formulas. Perfect nude palette alert? The shades are named and I will give each a quick description below.

Bare - this is a great highlighting shade as it is a yellowy beige matte shadow. Not hugely pigmented but not chalky. 
Sand - a lovely shimmer light golden brown colour. Minimum fallout and well pigmented.
Golden - a yellow gold shimmer shade. Minimum fallout and decently pigmented.
Glisten - a brown shimmer shade. A bit more fallout but great pigmentation. 
Earth - a dark brown matte shade with a tiny bit of shimmer particles. Bit chalky and somewhat pigmented.

Bliss - a champagne coloured shimmer shadow. Great pigmentation and buttery texture. 
Natural - dusty pink matte shadow. Medium pigmentation and no fallout.
Desert - deeper champagne coloured shimmer shadow. Great pigmentation and minimum fallout.
Nature - dark brown matte shade. Good pigmentation and minimum fallout.
Willow - dark brown shadow with red glitter particles. Decent pigmentation and slight fallout. 

I actually quite like the packaging of this palette. Black sleek outside which is not too bulky and quite a small size in comparison to the shades inside. There is a eyeshadow applicator inside which annoys me as who even used those anymore anyways! There is a large mirror which is handy if you had to apply this on the go or if you took it with you travelling. This would be great to travel with as it is such a small size and has so many shades which you could create many great eye looks with. There is even a guide on the back of how to create a great eye look. 

This retails for $12.99 AU at Priceline but is not listed on the website but I have seen it in several stores. I really cannot recommend this palette enough if you are a lover of neutral shades. Almost all of the shades have great colour pay off and minimum fallout, there is 10 shades to choose from, with a combination of matte and shimmer, all for under $15. Not sure what else you could want really (apart from the removal of the horrible eyeshadow applicator, grr!). 

Love Liz xx
