The idea of soft neutrals with a bit of a golden, peachy edge and a strong liner definition was too tempting to pass up so I placed my order for the Nectar & Nude palette (£37.50)
The slim palette has a built in mirror and the
double ended brush is usable.
The palette contains: Pale Cream
(matte sheer cream), Soft
Buff (matte warm rose brown), Golden Bronze
(metallic/sparkly gold/copper bronze), Pink
Bellini (glitter peachy pink), Earth (matte warm brown) and Rich Caviar
(matte deep brown/black)
My feelings on this palette are mixed, I do like the matte shades,
though could have done with Pale Cream having more pigment to
cancel out lid discolouration and I find Earth can look rather dry
on my lid. Whereas I think Soft Buff works well as an easy
neutral on the lid or crease and the pigment of Rich Caviar is
extremely good. Having tried BB sparkle shades before I knew Pink
Bellini would have that harder texture that requires application
with a finger rather than brush and did encounter the expected
fallout, however the shade itself is really pretty and does give
some lift to the matte neutrals.
My main gripe with this palette is with Golden Bronze, its the stand out colour in the palette
but the texture and application is a let down, pigment is very
sheer and it does not apply smooth, instead having a very crumbly
feel. I've had metallics from BB before and this just
doesn't seem the same.
This palette does creates
a natural warm daytime friendly look and the more
glitter/sparkle shades can be added to give a bit more
dimension, but I would strongly advise swatching this in store (unfortunately every time I went by my counter they
were using this palette in makeovers so I never got the
chance to swatch before buying) as the textures may make you
reconsider if this should come home with you.
