Makeup Revolution – I Heart Makeup: Naked Underneath – Faux Fur covered palette

I think the combination of colours in this Naked Underneath palette from I Heart Makeup are really lovely.  I have very much enjoyed this selection of shadows for both day and night.  I haven’t really seen much hype about this palette and some of that may be because the packaging looks a bit tacky and childish, but I think this palette has been curated in a very thoughtful and dynamic way and that this is a great all-rounder palette.

The quality of the shadows are lovely: soft, pigmented and they blend very nicely.  These last well on my lids without creasing.

Swatches (top to bottom, left to right): Free, Stroke, Love, Hidden, 2004, Attention, Seeking, Covered.

There is a great mix of mattes and shimmer/satin formulas with 6 mattes and 10 shimmer shades.  The colours are also excellently curated with a mix of light, mid and dark tones as well as warm and cool tones.  I feel like it is obvious how the shadows could be pulled together for easy, but beautiful looks.  And there is a perfect matte transition shade for every tone combination which I LOVE!  Plus, there is a matte brow highlight (Free) and a bright inner-corner highlight (Wonderous), which, I might add, is also gorgeous all over the lid.

On a practical note, the fur fabric on the lid molts a bit and it does gather dust so even if you like this packaging, you can’t really display it.  For me, like I said at the beginning, the aesthetic of the packaging, well, it isn’t my thing.  The fake fur, the big jewel; it is all a bit glitzy and totally not my style at all, but the contents of the palette, which is what really matters, is quite beautiful.

I actually really like this selection of shades for travel and would happily take this away on trips where I needed a range of colours and the capacity to move from a very neutral everyday look to a dramatic, smokey or glam look but I don’t want to pack a tone of makeup.

This palette retails for GBP7.99 but I purchased this one on sale for GBP4.99 which is about AU$10.  At that price, for 16 eyeshadows, I think this is a steal!

If you would like to check it out for yourself, you can find the Naked Underneath palette on the Makeup Revolution website and they ship worldwide 🙂

Have a glorious day!
