What’s one thing all beauty-obsessed women have in their arsenal? A nude palette. That’s what.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past couple of years, you’ve probably heard a beauty blogger or beauty YouTuber talk about their love of nude palettes. The nude palettes that all seem to rave about, Urban Decay’s Naked, Bobbi Brown’s Nude on Nude palette, or Maybelline’s the nudes might all come to mind.
While I LOVE all of these brands and hope to own them all one day, let’s be real here. Some of us can’t afford to shell out those kinds of price tags very often. I budget, ALL. The. Time. Rarely do I ever have tons of money left over after all the essentials are paid, to be spending on those high-priced versions.
Over the years, I’ve become super money savvy when it comes to beauty, just take a look at these nails I did for example. So If you are SICK & TIRED OF PAYING FULL PRICE FOR A GREAT NUDE PALETTE, then this post is for you.
I’ve found two eyeshadow palettes that are just as good as those pricier ones, but for a 1/8th of the price!
The nude palettes I’m talking about are the L.A. Colors Day To Night eyeshadow palettes.
The first eyeshadow palette, Daylight, has a lot of warm colors such as rose, bronze, sand, and some great night looks as well with purples, and coppers and dark browns.
The second palette, Dawn, has a lot of nice rosy colors with hints of metallic, teal, deep purples, and some smokey colors such as deep browns and silvers.
What I like About These Palettes…..
So apart from the price, which I’ll talk more about in a minute, my favorite thing about these palettes is the variety of smokey/nude colors that make it easy for you to go from day to night, hence the name of them.
I also like the fact that they tend to stay on all day and pair great with subtle and even statement makeup looks.
What I don’t Like About These Palettes……
While the price is great (more info in a minute), the downside to these palettes is that it takes A LOT of product to get a more noticeable color payoff. Some of the shades aren’t pigmented enough to be used in a look, so I mostly use those for highlighters on my brow bone.
I also wish the packaging was a lot more practical. The top of the palette clicks too tightly together with the bottom part, which makes it hard to open. Other than those two things….. I would say these palettes are fairing very well!
