Hi lovelies! With the recent release of the Naked 3 (I am eagerly waiting for mine to arrive!), I have been re-discovering the other neutral palettes in my collection. Today I thought I would talk about another of my purchases from Target in the US from last year's holiday adventures. I had heard a lot about Pixi on YouTube so along with the Pixi Radiance Powder I also picked up this Nude Shade Wardrobe.
First of all, the palette comes in a green cardboard box type of packaging, which is not too bad I think. However, one thing that I love about the packaging is the fact that the shades are arranged like a little mosaic - very similar to the Napoleon Perdis highlighter. As you can see from the picture above, the lighter shades are on the left and the darker shades are on the right.
The palette contains a range of shimmery as well as matte shades (although I think the majority are shimmery). The colour selection in the palette is great as it contains pretty much all colours that you would need in order to create a natural daytime look or a sexy smokey eye. I find that the eye shadows last a lot longer when I use primer. Without primer they last around 5 hours before they start creasing.
Overall, I think that this is a great palette for a beginner or anyone who is looking to have a range of neutral shades but without breaking the budget. The eyeshadows are nicely pigmented and not too chalky either. I recall that I paid around $26.00 USD for this palette at Target although after doing a Google search for it, I found that it was selling for only $9.00 on ASOS.
Have you discovered any cool products whilst you were overseas? Please let me know below so I can look out for them when I am travelling next time.
