CAN A GIRL HAVE TOO MANY NEUTRAL EYE PALETTES???Well.... A perfect neutral palette is definitely necessary in every girl's makeup stash. Last year I got the Mirage Palette of Coastal Scents and I shared about it here!!! Recently I found this site called T Mart and found 2 awesome neutral palettes and really couldn't stop myself from getting them....
Guess what those palettes are called on their cover??? N*ked 2 & N*ked 3. Yup, you read that right.... They're dupes of Urban Decay N*ked 2 & 3. But on the website, they're called 12 Colors Earth Tone Eyeshadow Palette and 12 Colors Generation 3 Eyeshadow Palette. And ofcourse, they're dupes and they're just $10. So you can't expect the Urban Decay quality in this.
The colors are similar to UD, although not the same. There are 12 colors in each palette. There are mattes, shimmers and metallics. The color names are written below each shade just like in original and they are absolutely gorgeous.
The outer tin packaging is similar to UD. But the inner plastic packaging is of poorer quality. The mirror is nothing... Its just a tin sheet and hardly reflects good enough to wear makeup. But who am I kidding??? At 1/5th the price of the original, you can't ask for more. They include a dual headed brush with a shadow brush and crease brush on either ends and they're pretty good in size to hold by hand and the bristles hold the pigment too well.
The colors stay well on primed eyes for quite a few hours. Pigmentation is ok and you need to apply a couple coats the color to show very well. The mattes have no issues. The shimmers and metallics have fallout issues. If you see my below EOTDs, the shimmer has fallen all over below my eyes.
Here are a couple EOTD with these palettes - a very simple neutral everyday day look, a simple everyday night look with a hint of pink, and a smokey one ofcourse!!!
Guess what??? This I wore for a wedding in a sultry, summer evening and took this shot after I returned home after about 4 hrs. See, the eyeshadow hasn't budged a bit. The best part was it just didn't crease... While even many drug store brands crease, this one didn't. I'm way too happy!!!
Btw, the eye palettes in the 1st pic are Coastal Scents 88 Mirage Palette, T-Mart palettes reviewed in this post, Lakme Moondust quartet and Inglot Pearl Trio in 556...
P.S: The product was gifted by the company for reviewing purpose, however the opinions are of my own experience and are this post does not to advertise the product.
