L’oreal La Palette Nudes – Review, Photos & Swatches
L’Oréal Paris Color Riche La Palette consists of a symphony of tones specifically chosen by our make up designers to create your own glamorous & sophisticated eye looks.
From neutral mattes to rich shimmers, create timeless looks for any occasion.
I love the packaging of this palette. Compared to their western counterparts, this has a prettier, sleek and more travel friendly packaging. I also loved the embossed design in one of the shades in each palette. It makes the palette look a bit more high end. It includes a mirror and a very usable dual-ended applicator. The mirror is big enough to see both your eyes and the dual-ended applicator comes with a narrow yet thick flat ended brush and a sponge. In case you’re wondering though, both ends of this applicator, in my opinion have a good quality. The brush is not scratchy and the sponge has a different texture. I’ve used both multiple times already and the brush doesn’t shed and the sponge doesn’t tear or whatever.
L’oreal La Palette Nudes comes in two palettes: Beige & Rose. Beige is a collection of warm, neutral tones, hence the name. While Rose is a collection of pinks, burgundies and blush-toned nudes. Each palette contains 12 shades and I really like the color combination of both palettes because it allows you to create the most subtle to the boldest eye look.
Beige comes with 5 matte shades. The rest are a combination of metallics and shimmers. Rose, however, only comes with 4 matte shades then the rest are metallics/shimmers. I did take note the number of matte shades because, if you know me, I love matte shades and it’s important for a palette to have an ample amount of matte shades because it helps you create a more seamless/flawless look. (Oh taray!)
I’m borrowing Gen-zel’s arm again and this is the same photo you saw in my previous post when I posted about the event. Anyhoo, majority of the shades in both palettes are a bit creamy, very blendable and with decent pigmentation. The pigmentation does remind me a bit of Mac eyeshadows but less creamier. It’s definitely buildable and can be a lot more vibrant when applied on top of an eyeshadow primer.
In my opinion, and also from using this palette for a couple of months now, Beige actually contains more shades that are a bit more pigmented than the shades from the Rose palette. Don’t get me wrong though, I love the Rose palette as well. The matte shades here are nice transition colors and all of them have a nice color pay off.
I both of these photos, I used both palettes in my eye look. I used the Beige palette to contour my crease and to darken the outer V. Then I used Rose as my eyelid color, inner tear duct and brow bone highlight. When used with an eye primer, they last throughout the entire day on my lids. I haven’t used this without an eye primer yet (sorry) because I really want to intensify the color so I can’t tell you it’s longevity when used without one.
Overall, I’m very impressed with these palettes. Despite being from the drugstore, their packaging is superb, it does not feel flimsy, and it all of the shades deliver a nice quality. Sure the price may be a bit steep (Php 800/palette) but you get 12 shades. You’ll be able to use all of the shades because all of the colors in each palette are nicely curated allowing you to come up with lots of eye looks. Just use your imagination!
