It’s not often I find a palette that I’m obsessed with. In almost every palette I come across, there’s always some shades I LOVE, and some shades I’m not too fond of. But not anymore. Yes, that’s right ladies and gentleman- I’ve found ‘The One’.When Sephora had a 50% off sale few months back, I decided to pick up the IT Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Essentials palette. And boy, have I found my perfect palette! Neutrals, matte, plus a highlighter AND a mascara included – what more could I ask for?!
The palette itself consists of 6 neutral, matte eyeshadows, ranging from creamy whites, to rich chocolate browns, and a dark, matte black shade. As it’s name suggests, this palette is perfect for everyday wear, but also holds the capacity to deepen up a look for a night out.
The shades: (taken from website)
- Imagine: Matte silk beige
- Wonder: Matte nude khaki
- Dream: Matte desert sand
- Passion: Matte nude taupe
- Intrigue: Matte earthy sepia
- Allure: Matte smoky gray
- Transforming Hello Light™: Radiant pearl
As for the highlighter shade, it’s soft, and not too ‘in your face’, which is great for day to day wear. So if your looking for a highlight that will blind people around, its best to look elsewhere for something more intense.
It also came with a travel/mini size of their Superhero mascara, which I must say, I’m very impressed by. Definitely will look into purchasing the full size once I use this one up.
On to packaging, it is very small and compact, perfectly convenient for travel. Plus, it shuts closed with a magnet, ensuring that the product won’t accidentally open and get everywhere. It also comes with a mirror, great for on the go.
If you’re looking for a compact, travel friendly, and just all round fantastic palette for everyday wear, I highly recommend you check this out!
What’s your go-to palette?
