Today, I am back from my Christmas break (it was lovely, thank you, and I got skincare and make-up so expect some more excited reviews coming soon!) to rave about a product that was such a big part of my autumn: the NYX Ultimate Palette in Warm Neutrals.
It looks like this:
It’s simple, modern and sleek. It’s also really obvious that I’ve been using these three middle colors a lot! But it’s a clean packaging with fairly good-sized pans; and overall the palette is very practical. It’s thin so it’s easy to grab with you when you’re travelling or if you want to keep it in your purse, you still get quite a lot of product for the price and the only thing I can say is that it’s only missing a little mirror (as far as packaging goes… Otherwise I have many more things to say).
These tones were all the rage during autumn, and I must admit I was a little stressed out about putting such bright, reddish colors on my very pale skin. But it worked out fine! It’s actually also really good to pop up a look during the winter (because I mostly wear black and navy blue or dark green, so I always need a little bit of color) and it works great with blue eyes. To be honest, I think it’s a color palette that works with all eyes and all skin tones; because there’s quite a lot of choice and it’s very pigmented. At least, I think so!
There’s a nice mix of shimmers (my favorite) and mattes, and they blend beautifully together. The colors go so well together it’s almost impossible to get it wrong, which encourages you to try new looks and styles.
This is a great palette at an affordable price (I got it on the Boots website for £16, which is a little more expensive that most palettes in this general range of make-up) for such good quality, and it allows so many different eye looks that it’s definitely worth it. I think it’s a perfect palette for beginners, as well, since it offers a lot of choices while being easy to blend, resulting in nice, varied looks.
There are two little flaws, however: there’s a little bit of fallout, and the palette could be bigger (I was quite surprised at the size when I first saw it, but got used to it since then!). There’s still a lot of product and it’s definitely a palette you can trust, so if you would like to purchase it, here’s a link: http://tidd.ly/af388195 *)
Definitely a 4/5 stars, and a great palette for all abilities! Also a good gift idea since the colors are so trendy and easily wearable.
I hope this will have been enjoyable and helpful, and I’ll see you very soon for more articles and videos!
