L'Oreal La Palette Nude in #02 Beige review & swatches

Eyeshadow palettes that have more than 4 eyeshadows are a rare find in the drugstore, that's why the appearance of L'Oreal La Palette Nudes caused a bit of the stir in the beauty community. There are 2 variations available, out of which I picked #02 Beige. 

This is a beautifully curated palette that contains everything you need. The packaging is good quality, sleek and handy. It's equipped with a full-length mirror and a double-ended applicator. As far as the shadows are concerned, there are mattes, satins and shimmers, dark and light shades, basically everything you need to create a day-to-night look.

The quality of the shadows is decent, but it didn't blow my socks off. The shimmers are buttery soft and perform exceptionally well, but the mattes are on the dry side and tend to lack in the pigmentation department. The good thing about all of the eyeshadows is that they are neither powdery nor crumbly and they don't cause fallout.

What I don't like about the palette is that it's definitely a warm-toned one and I look much better in cooler taupes than in peachy browns and yellows. There's one beautiful taupe shade and a nice dark brown and a navy black which suit my taste and complexion, but that's not enough for me to enjoy the whole palette. I'm giving it away to a friend of mine whom it'll suit much better.

1. Self sufficiency: The palette contains shades shat are varied enough to make one complete look.
 2. Variety of shades: Even though we get here a nice selection of neutrals, they're not terribly diverse. But then, this is a nude palette, so a lot of diversity is not expected.
3. Variety of finishes: The variety of finishes is just right, you get here a selection of mattes, shimmers and sparkles.
4. Variety of looks is limited. This is a palette that will offer you a basic, office-friendly look that can be amped up to a sort of night-time appropriate look. 
5. Pigmentation varies from shade to shade.
6. Uniqueness: This palette is unique in the drugstore, but there are other comparable products on the market.
7. Performance: The shadows are just all right. Nothing to write home about.
8. Packaging is very practical, with its sleek design, well-fitting lid and a mirror.
9. Availability: unavailable in Poland, can be bought online from
10. Value for money: This palette is a great value for money.
