Hey guys ! how are you all doing ?
For girls starting out with makeup or girls on a budget, Its sometimes difficult to select a good neutral eye shadow palette which will fit the bill perfectly. Neutral eye shadows are an essential in any makeup for creating everyday looks or soft smokey eyes for day time looks. So today I have an eye shadow palette which meets all the requirements of a good neutral eye shadow palette.
Catrice Absolute Eyeshadow palette
There are 4 palettes in this range each consisting of 6 eye shadows.
With Urban decay having their naked palettes and Naked basics palettes, it sparks interest in the hearts of makeup addicts like me. Drugstore options sometimes seems limited but now many company’s are releasing their inspired version of ‘naked’ palettes. Lets have a look at this palette which I have used for quite sometime and loving it.
Description– Six nude shades in one palette: subtle sand, delicate beige and brown in various facets. Some matt, some with a shimmer. The soft eye shadow texture with high pigmentation and colour dispersion creates natural-looking eye make-up, yet is also ideal for smokey eye styles in the evening. With a practical double-ended applicator.
Price– 4,99 €
My thoughts- These eye shadows come housed in a simple plastic black case with a transparent lid. It doesn’t feel cheap but its a simple no-fuss case. For the price, its an excellent palette from the drugstore.
1st shade- A shimmery champagne shade. This was the most chunkiest of all when swatched and at first I felt it wouldn’t work. But it worked beautifully and was not at all chalky. There’s fallout with this eyeshadow but it works.
2nd shade– Its a light mauvey pink. Smooth and easy to work with.
3rd shade– medium brown with mauve undertones.
4th shade– bronzre with hints of gold.
5th shade– medium brown with little silver shimmer
6th shade– dark brown with tiny gold shimmer.
Texture and pigmentation-
Apart from the first shade, all others are amazing to work with. They are smooth and build well. They are decently pigmented and since they are buildable, it reduced the chances of going overboard with them.
Surprisingly, they stay put for 6-7 hours. I haven’t tested them for more than 7 hours and I have always used a primer underneath, but I can guarantee they will last a long time.
I think this is an amazing palette to throw in you make up bag and for make up on the go. I have even used them with my fingers and they blend and apply easily. I love using this on a daily basis. They are not chalky and well pigmented except the first shade. But with tapping of the excess, its an amazing highlighting shade. There’s much losing than gaining but its ok. I am very impressed with this palette and I would definitely recommend to try this one out.
Here’s my look of the day with this palette-
Have an amazing day lovlies!! 🙂 🙂
