I have wanted the Nabla Dreamy Eyeshadow Palette for a while now but it was always out of stock on Beautybay.com (and I was not going to order it direct from Nabla because I didn’t like the shipping charge to Australia). Recently it came back in stock at Beauty Bay for $60.70 AUD with free shipping. BeautyBay post all over the world so if you are having trouble finding this palette head over to their site.
The palette is made from thick sturdy cardboard and is embossed with yellow gold, rose gold and silver stars…….it is very cute packaging.
The palette has twelve shadows consisting of five mattes, two pearl and four metallics. The pearl shades Immaculate and Vanitas are both duo-chromes. Immaculate is a white duo-chrome and Vanitas is a peach-pink duo-chrome, both have gold reflects.
The mattes in this palette are very soft and extremely pigmented. I only needed to softly dab my brush into the pans to pick up product. They all blended out effortlessly and none were patchy. They remind me of Viseart mattes (click here for a review of the Viseart Tryst palette)
The pearl and metallic shades applied perfectly with my finger and the intensity of the shimmer was strong even without Mac Fix Plus and a brush. The pearl shade Immaculate makes a beautiful inner corner highlight.
The only complaint I have with this palette…..and it is a tiny complaint, is that I had to use my trusty single Bobbi Brown shadow in Wheat as an all over lid shade to set my eye primer as this palette did not have a shade light enough for my nc20 skin. This is really not a big deal to me but worth mentioning.
I really love this palette! The formula is fantastic and it has some unique shades mixed in with the mattes. It does not lean warm or cool toned, making this a very versatile palette.
Full Disclosure: I used the Nars Eye base primer on my lids before using this palette as it is what I do every time I do my makeup. Links are not affiliate.
Overall I rate this product 9/10.
I would love to hear your thoughts on this palette! xx
