Love Urban Decay but can’t afford to fork out nearly £40.00 for their Naked palettes? Primark has got you covered with the release of their new £4.00 eyeshadow palette collection.
There are four palettes to get hold of and these include Minerals, Nudes, Smokey and Bronze.
When I went shopping recently I got my hands on the Nudes palette. The palette had a mixture of matte and shimmery shades although the majority have a shimmer consistency. The shades are quite a broad mix of delicate neutrals and darker more intense colours.
When I searched the shades I was really impressed with how pigmented they are. I only needed one swipe for deep intense colour, even the lightest shimmer has quite a vibrant shimmer. My favourite shades have to be Beached Blonde and barely Berry.
Most of the shades were quite soft, although I found some of the matte shades were easily breakable and a bit messy.
Using the palette I went for two looks; one was quite soft looking using the lighter shimmery shades, whilst the other used darker nudes.
Want a delicate look for the day? Here’s how to create it.
1. In the inner corner of my eye I applied Bleached Blonde, a subtle pink shade
2. I gave the look more intensity by darkening it with Skinny Dipping a bold raspberry pink shade
If you’re looking for something to take you from day to night then Divine Intervention may be worth trying.
1. I used Cafe Creme on the inner corner of my eye
2. I wanted to add a smokey effect so used Wood Nymph on the outer 2/3 of my eye blending the two shades together.
After applying I did feel Cafe Creme was a lot lighter then I thought so I’m not really sure the two shades worked that well together. In retrospect Wood Nymph and Caught Red Handed may be a better combination.
When I applied the eyeshadows there was a small amount of fall out but nothing to worry about. Other than the initial fall out the eyeshadows lasted all day without creasing. The eyeshadow is really long lasting and the shades look just as intense in the evening as they did when first applied.
A fabulous budget buy from Primark that is a must have in your beauty collection. You get a great range of shades that have great staying power and pigment and it costs less than a fiver.
You can buy the palette in most bigger Primark stores.
