Loreal Paris La Palette Nude - Rose review and swatches

Monday, 8 December 2014

I love the colours in this palette, but if you're not one for pinks and plum shades on your eyes then this definitely isn't for you.

The quality of the shadows is fairly decent considering the price which works out as about £1.50 per shadow, but it is a bit hit-and-miss. I've swatched them all below so you can get an idea of what I mean, and the colour pay-off of each.

From left to right, numbers 3,4,7,8,9,10 are more pigmented than the others. With number 5 giving the least colour, but I do find this one is great pressed over the other shades to add a bit more shimmer. I've heard other reviews say that the mattes tend to be a little patchy, but I find this is also the case with a few of the shimmers, but by adding more of the shadow and blending a lot I find you can overcome this. That does require a fair bit of effort so if you like highly-pigmented, super quick eye looks then there's better palettes out there for you. But if you really like these sorts of colours and you don't mind spending a bit of extra time on your eyes, then I suspect you and this palette will get along very well.

The brush/applicator as with most palettes, is a bit crap but a welcome addition which means you don't have to carry around another brush if you're taking this out of the house.

The more I used it, the more I've become used to which colours work best together and which are more pigmented etc. so now I'm reaching for this all the time. It is a lovely palette which doesn't break the bank at all, which I find especially compelling considering my student budget.

These are available from Boots for £14.99 if you want to get your hands on one.

  1. The shadows are beautiful, definitely something I'd go for, but I like shadows that are easy to work with so will probably pass up on this. Thanks a lot for the review, great and informative :)
