Nude palettes

Eye & Brow Contouring Palette, Catrice (020 But First, Hot Coffee!) (temporarily out of stock) “My main find and surprisingly is the cheapest. Shades are exhaustively correct. They are suitable for automatic sculpting of the eyelids: a matte beige on the whole moving eyelid, dark brown deepens the outer corner, a shiny creamy - amazingly highlights the inner one. The intensity is easily varied by layering. In the evening I make a languid Smokey, and when suddenly necessary, I tint my eyebrows with the same shadows and emphasize the cheekbones. Special thanks for the compactness. A palette is no more than a pager, if you still remember how they look :) In general, if there are claims to the million nude shadows that are available, try these ”, - Lena.

Mat Eye Colors, Make Up Factory, 070 (1159 rub.) - “I would not have thought that velvety matte shades can be watercolor. And that they can go this way. They fall smoky dust without sudden transitions and boundaries. Apply better with a brush. I do not know why, but these shadows are obviously more like it. Under the fingers, they can be completely shaded to zero. I would add some satin peach to the palette, and I would be very happy ”, - Lena.

Eye Shadow Quartet, Isa Dora, 44 Muddy Nudes (1125 rub.) - “Very soft, pigmented and creamy texture. Dusty, but, in general, not critical. But on cheers keep even without a base. That is necessary for every day, ”- Lena.

Redemption Palette, Makeup Revolution, Essential Mattes 2 (490 rub.) - “I have already said about one hundred million times and wrote that this palette is most excellent. In the light of the price around 500 rubles - just fly. To its advantages, in addition to the excellent quality of matte shadows for such ridiculous money, I will also carry a palette. The rare case when you have not one light base shade to choose from, but four. Of course, I am the queen of nuda, but I still get tired of painting the same thing every day, ”- Yulia.

Most Wanted Pallete, Artdeco, Nude to Go, (998 rub.) - “This is also a great palette, which I lost a little amid the Makeup Revolution. The quality is quite decent, the shades are good. Just when there is a palette with 12 shades on hand, the hand automatically reaches for them. But Artdeco has its own plus - not all colors are matte, there are three shimmer ones (and these are three normal chimmers). Again, on the issue of diversity ", - Julia.

Eyeshadow Palette, e.l.f., Mad for Matte, (577 rubles) - “A recent discovery that happened to me thanks to our Olya Tretyakova's love for iHerb. I'm not sure for 100% that the palette can be attributed to the nude one - the main part of the colors here is richly brown. But I use the left five shades every day - and I get what I need: "my eyes, only brighter and more." Shadows of excellent quality, problems with color output and shading - 0. Right wah! ”- Julia.

I-Divine Mineral Based Eyeshadow Palette (A New Day 430), Sleek Make Up (950 rubles) - “Having already checked out this palette, I was surprised to discover that this is some kind of mega-hit, I-Divine is already releasing either 7 , or 8 years (in different variations, of course), during this time 3.68 million pallets were sold, and about 1,325 pieces are bought in the world every day. Well, I'm ready to contribute, so that tomorrow they will be sold for a hundred or more more. 12 shades, 6 matte-satin, 6 shimmer, from sparkling champagne to dark chocolate, practice in nude nude as much as you wish, and eyelid - stand it. Some are a little dusty, some are not too willing to give color, but you can adjust, because they are layered well. The applicator from the palette goes straight to the furnace, of course, ”- Yana Z.

Non nude palettes

Full Throttle Shadow Palette, NYX, Easy on the Eyes (499 rub.) - “A monstrous outrage, just learned that the palette is removed from sale. But I will not remove from the rating. There is a chance that in the "Girlfriend" you can still find the remains, and some other NYX shadows have similar quality (for example, in the Contour Intuitive Palette). We have: two well-educated matte nudu and two metallic-tear. Inspired either by safari or by golden autumn: the color of fallen leaves and frost-nailed green. Apply with your fingers and only. Then the shadows almost do not dust and more densely, more uniformly fit on the eyelid. Especially good are soft-springy and saturated metallic. Why, why did they remove this palette from production ... ”- Lena.

Eye Shadow Palette, IsaDora, 62 Highlands (949 rubles) - “For the selection of shades of five points. The case when I didn’t know what I wanted, and IsaDora managed to guess my desires and hit the apple :) The lightest shade does not have large sparkles, but it miraculously highlights everything that needs to be highlighted. And most importantly, it is not whitish-mother-of-pearl (such look coarse, in my opinion), but warm, like baked milk. It mixes well with other shimmer shades, brown and olive. Matte khaki and eggplant are not knocked out of this everyday spectrum. But do not let him slide into banality.

In general, using the example of this palette, I realized that I was fed up with the trend instituted by Urban Decay Naked - to stretch colors in one scale. (Although the quality of Naked is excellent.) Yes, each shade is beautiful. But the most important thing for an artist is what? Inspiration. 8-10-16 pink / beige / gray shades inspire me ... today is not beautiful. If you suddenly - unintentionally - experience a similar feeling, there is a great chance that you will like the Highlands paletka, ”- Lena.

Masterpiece Nude Palette, Max Factor, 03 Rose Nudes (749 rubles) - “If, on the contrary, you do not agree with me, hold the Max Factor palettes. The first is in a cold beige scale, the second in a warm one, the third is pink-plum. Shadows are saturated and silky, just hand. Not too, however, universal, for all in varying degrees shining. It would not hurt a couple of matte. But such a quality for 700 rubles is still a search, ”- Lena.

Eye Love it Eyeshadow Palette, Misslyn (949 rubles) - “And this is exactly the case when you can create and stay within the law. I had two such palettes, in one instead of a green emerald green - rich crimson, and the rest of the range was also in ocher tones, but a little warmer. And this is a very correct combination, it also allows you to draw, as a whole, and not at all, either. And the emerald is here emerald, and crimson is a pleasant powdered raspberry, and I adore them both. True, I have a suspicion that they were limits. But this quality was equally excellent for both, so take any other combinations too. ” - Yana W.


Nude Look, Eva Mosaic (698 rubles) - “The shadows are so transparent that it is impossible to distinguish the difference between the four shades of the five. When I say “invisible makeup,” I don’t mean its complete absence ”, - Lena.

Color Catch Eye Palette, BeYou, 303 (745 rubles) - four shades for the “green nuda”, let's say. That is, three different shades of green, including, as it were, emerald green and, as it were, khaki, plus strong-shimmer cold white. So, you do not need any. White lays down as if you had a snowball in your eyes, the rest - form dirty stains of varying degrees of intensity, and all after three hours mysteriously disappear from the eyelids. Even with my, not fat and fertilized base. " - Yana W.
