I managed to resist buying the L’Oreal La Palette Nude, even after hearing so many rave reviews as I don’t really need any more palettes but when L’Oreal sent me it I definitely let out a few squeals.
Being from L’Oreal this is a really affordable palette perfect for any beauty lover on a budget, 10 neutral shadow shades for under £15! The packaging is nice; sleek, secure and perfect for travel with a good size mirror. Theres a nice range of shimmers and matte which is really important for me. Formula wise I think it’s really nice but it’s definitely no Urban Decay Palette, the shimmery ones are really creamy, smooth and pigmented but the matte ones are a little bit lighter in pigmentation and not quite as soft. As I only typically use the mattes in the crease I don’t actually find this to be a problem but if you like them all over the lid than it’s something to consider, especially on darker skins.
It’s a beautiful palette but there are a few way I think it could be improved, there are only four shimmers which I think is a shame as they’re much better quality than the others and there are also a couple of shades that I wouldn’t wear and that I almost don’t think fit the palette. That said I’ve heard that the original La Palette Nude in Rose Gold has a few more shimmers so would potentially work a little better.
I have a few other drugstore palettes that I never reach for but I think this is one that I may keep and use from time to time. If you’re on a budget and looking a palette that offers more options than the typical quad or just want a palette to experiment with without have to invest £35+ then I would still say this is worth have a look at and considering.
