When wandering through Boots yesterday (no wonder I have so many advantage points, twice in one week?!) I noticed pretty much every brand had a 3 for 2 offer on cosmetics. If you could mix and match the brands I probably would have ended up with a few more bits, however I went in specifically looking for a new foundation, of which I’ll do another post about!
I was browsing through the brands and spied two pretty little palettes from the Boots brand 17; one had pastel colors and the other which I picked up was called metallic nudes.
The palette comes equipped with its own large mirror and double-ended spongetip applicator, perfect for if you’re on the go! There are six colors in the palette, all of which (as the name suggests) are metallic. The color pay off is brilliant for such an inexpensive product! I love how the colors aren’t set out in the typical way of a palette too!
On the top row of my hand are colors taken from the Urban Decay Naked palette and on the bottom are some of the colors taken from 17’s Vintage Love Metallic Nudes palette.
Urban Decay Naked colors from left to right – sin, sidecar, half baked and toasted.
As the swatches show, some of the colors from the Metallic Nude palette can easily pass as cheaper dupes for some of Urban Decay’s colors! Although the last colors swatched on my hand look completely different from one another, they look a lot similar in person as they both have pinky undertones which reflect the light!
I think this is a lovely little palette in every aspect; packaging, pigmentation, price and color!
Definitely worth its price tag!
