Who me? Purchasing a set of brown eyeshadow, some nary a hint of shimmer? Yes, it’s true. As much as I love, crave, and adore bright, shimmery eyeshadow, I do take a trip to the neutral side of the eyeshadow palette every now and then, as evidenced by my recent Urban Decay purchase.
NYX Cosmetics The Natural Eyeshadow Palette had been on my mind for well over a week, and that meant it had a home in my makeup collection.
Silky smooth and as utterly blendable as the other NYX shadows I’ve ever tried, these six simple shades are basics that every makeup user has to have. While I wouldn’t call this a dupe for Urban Decay’s suite of Naked palettes in terms of pigmentation, this pretty palette is a nice selection of shimmery golds and tans with no crazy fall out to worry about.
My eyes? They’re very happy with my newest acquisition and will be sporting these colors on bright lipstick days and also paired with brighter colors in my makeup collection.
My Final Thoughts: Consider this palette a bargain win! This is a nice set of basic browns that can be worn their own and also to blend with other, brighter colors.
Availability: Available online and at Ulta Stores.
Gluten-free? While none of the ingredients contain wheat, NYX does not specifically test for gluten.
