What do you love about the palette and why?
Ever since I saw the first photos of this palette it owned my heart. And then it showed up in store, I had a chance to play with it and fell even more in love, everyone who's talked to me recently knows I was set on buying it come payday! . So what's so amazing about it? Well it's the warm toned palette I've been waiting for, it's muted orangey browns without being too bright orange. Just the right amount of warmth and colour that I find complements my brown eyes like no other. All the mattes are buttery and soft, easy to pick up with minimal fallout and maximum payout . The shimmers are lovely and stunning, especially Honey, it's such a vibrant and beautiful gold you have to see it to understand. I've been loving the Naked Reloaded formula and this seems like it's even better somehow!
What is favourite shade from the palette?
Totally all the mattes! I live for Swarm and Keeper, one of my favourite looks to do is using Swarm all over the lid, Keeper in the crease with Sting in the outer corner of the eye to add more dimension, nice, easy and simple, for a perfect day to day look.
Top Tip for creating a look with the Palette?
Don't be afraid to experiment with mixing and matching colours, they all go so well together the turnout is always beautiful . And secondly, I love using the 'foiling' technique with the shimmers, dip your brush in a colour then spray All Nighter Setting Spray 118Ml - Urban Decay on top and apply, eyeshadows look even more vibrant and eye catching this way.
Here's a look I did yesterday with it, I used Swarm in the crease, Drip in the outer corner, Amber (foiled!) in the middle of my lid, Honey in the inner corner and Flyby just under the brow bone, my go-to date night look for a while . It was daytime meaning I couldn't really catch the beautiful shimmers too well, so sorry about that! You can see it's a pretty good daytime look as well, and then it comes to shine full force when you're in a nighttime setting.
As far as cons go, I've got to admit, the eyeshadow quality is impeccable, but the brush is sort of disappointing. I did my swatches with it and it took me a while as it just doesn't pick up eyeshadow as well as other brushes I have. I would have preferred if they stuck to the Reloaded format, sleeker, a bit more elegant and no brush.
Would you recommend this palette to a friend?
Yes yes yes yes! 100 times yes! Like I said earlier, to me it's a perfect warm palette without being too crazy, just ask @Julia or @SophieG1 how obsessed I've been with it haha. It's a very versatile neutral palette, you can have everyday looks and at the same time you can pull off a stunning sultry look or a lovely messy grungy one, total win!
