L'Oreal Paris Color Riche La Palette Nude 2 Eyeshadow Palette: Review and Swatches
It certainly feels like 2015 is the resurgence of the nude palette. With new releases from Shu Uemura, Dior, Lise Watier, and just about every other brand, the nude palette is all the rage once again. And now, L'Oreal has released two new nude palettes called the Color Riche La Palette Nude 1 and Nude 2 ($29.99 CAD). To see some swatches of the Nude 2 Palette, filled with taupes, mauves, and plums, click.......

Packaging:
The La Palette Nude 2 comes in a fairly compact rectangular plastic black case. On the lid, there is a clear window that lets you see the shades inside and on the underside of the lid, there is also a long strip of mirror. The compact comes with a duo-ended brush/sponge applicator. The overall quality of the packaging is decent but it's nothing dazzling or luxurious.

Formulation:
The overall color scheme of this palette is quite cool. There is a mixture of satins, shimmers, and mattes. Most of the shades (each shade is 1.75g) are smooth and pigmented, with a couple of the mattes a bit patchy.
  • Shimmery pinkish ivory highlighting color, very smooth and pigmented
  • Shimmery pinkish brown

Overall:
This is a lovely palette with lots of easy to wear mauves and taupes. I like the abundance of matte shades as they make great blending colors. I wish the packaging was a bit more fancy but for the value it's pretty unbeatable!

Availability:
The La Palette Nude 1 & La Palette Nude 2 is available in stores now.
