The eyeshadow palette is packaging is a slim cardboard palette with a see-through window on the top to view the shades. 

The palette is quite small, no bigger than the palm of my hand.

The packaging is simple, but very cute. While it is not the most protective, I would have no problem 
traveling or storing this palette. 


The palette contains 10 pressed powder eyeshadows, each 0.02 ounces. So there is not a lot of product in each individual pan.

The shades are a mixture of warm, neutral, and cool undertone neutrals. The finish of the shades is largely matte with a few satin finishes. 

There is no distinct smell to the palette.

Now let's talk about the individual shades:

Nude matte cool bone beige
Even Nuder matte neutral pink ivory
Sentimental matte cool fawn light brown
Vapid satin cool icy pink
Touched matte neutral medium brown
Moonstruck matte warm peachy beige
Rapture matte warm chocolate brown
Roused satin warm coral pink
Madly Deeply matte cool charcoal brown
Lightness of Being satin warm medium mauve

All of the shades had a nice buttery soft formula with excellent pigmentation, except "Nude". Nude had a much denser consistency which lead to less pigmentation and slightly more patchiness.

The formula of this palette reminded me of the LORAC Pro Eyeshadow formula. There is a little bit of powder kick up when product is picked up. The shadows can be quite powdery and the darker shades are more likely to have fall out. 

The shades were able to blend well on top of each other and other eyeshadow formulas. The colors were slightly buildable in terms of pigmentation.

This palette is amazing as an add on palette for combining with bold metallic shades and palettes. If you're one for light neutral eye looks, or you prefer matte finishes, you will love this palette.

The shades wore well for 8 to 9 hours before starting to crease when worn over top of a primer.

The Pink Nudes Palette is an excellent palette in terms of formula, color selection, and price! It offers the perfect selection of neutral tones that can be worn alone or in conjunction with bold shadows. With the exception of "Nude", I love every shade in this palette. I can wear this with just about every lip color and if I need a quick eye look, this is my go-to. I will say, if you have a deep skin tone, you may not get the versatility out of this palette that someone with fair to light skin tones will. The lighter shades in this palette may appear ashy.
