Australis "Nudist" Palette Swatches/Review
I bought this little palette from Target a few weeks ago. I am a big fan of Australis products, they are always on trend and very inexpensive. By now I think most cosmetics companies have bought out a natural eyeshadow palette inspired by the UD Naked Palette. This palette comes with 8 neutral shadows. There was no tester for this product in store so I didn't really know what the colour pay off would be like before I decided to buy it but for the price you can't complain. The swatches don't really do the colours justice.
Colour pay off: The first 3 colours in this palette are very chalky and similar in colour and texture. The last 5 colours have great colour pay off, they also have a buttery feel to them unlike the first 3 (my favourite is the second last shadow).
Packaging: I like that this is really sleek and compact although I do not like the brush that it comes with.
Where to buy: Kmart, Target, Big W etc.
Wear time: I used a primer (UD Primer Potion) under these shadows and they lasted around 6-7 hours.
The only fault in the palette (apart form the first 3 colours) is the fact is has no matte shades. They are all shimmery. For me, I like a matte shade to use in my crease so I wouldn't be able to just use this one palette for a look.
All in all this is a great little drugstore palette.
Would you wear these shadows?
