L'Oreal La Palette Nude Review & Swatches

Everyone seems to be jumping on the naked palette bandwagon and finally a drugstore brand have jumped on and its a corker. L'Oreal La Palette Nude comes with 10 neutral shades featuring 6 shimmers and 4 mattes. When I saw this in its stand all alone (only one left) I knew I had to get it. 

First up the shadows are placed in a sturdy black plastic palette, pretty standard and although not the fanciest of packaging it does the job and looks good. The palette also comes with a big mirror and a dual ended brush but to be honest its pretty crappy so I would recommend tossing it aside. Moving on to the shades. Like I mentioned it comes with 6 shimmers and 4 mattes and the shimmers are defiantly the winners of the palette. The mattes are a little meh and are only good for the crease area as they tend to be a little streaky if placed across the lid however the quality of the shimmers will make up for the disappointing mattes. The shimmery shades are fully pigmented, buttery and easy to work with. As the palette is called 'Rosy' the shades are meant to be on the rosy side of things but personally I feel the shadows are more purple/ mauve toned so I think if you avoided the Naked 3 because of the rose toned shadows then this might be up your street as I think this palette will suit more. 

The palette is priced at €22.99/£14.99  which is a little pricey for the drugstore but L'Oreal isn't usually the cheapest of makeup when it comes to drugstore products so it was expected but I feel you do get a great quality product for the price and a product that you will get a lot of use of. Also I feel it has switched some things up in terms of stepping away from just browns as there are some gorgeous plummy brown shades in this palette that compliment the eyes so well. So overall the price isn't too bad.

I do recommend checking this palette out, I have't be able to put it down since getting it so I do feel it is a little gem to have in your collection and I guess you can never have too many neutral palettes, can you?
