Recently this Sleek eye shadow palette – Au Naturel has become an everyday favourite of mine, here’s a quick review and swatches of the palette!
This palette is great for an everyday natural look or a beautiful smokey eye look for a night out! I’d say this palette is a great dupe for Urban Decays Naked 2 Palette, the colours are quite similar and it’s a cheaper alternative, great for those on a budget.
The top six shades are very neutral toned, when I use them everyday I have go back and reapply a few times to see any real colour (this is probably down to my skin tone though) and the shades pick up really well on my Real Techniques shadow brush.
The bottom six have really earthy tones, kind of reminds me of Autumn colours, these are really great for creating natural smoky eyes or the shades are buildable to create a dramatic look. The pigmentation of the bottom colours are excellent, a little goes a long way!
The texture of the shadows are a cream to powdery, when I use my fingers it feels really silky and smooth. They lift very well onto the brush and it glides and blends effortlessly but I found that the shimmery eyeshadows don’t really lift well or blend very easily. It takes me a lot longer to create the desired look and I really have work to get any product on to the brush.
Available at Superdrug.com for £7.99
Overall it’s a great palette, colours are lovely and neutral and for £7.99 it’s a great price! Looking forward to trying the other eyeshow palettes now!
