It Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Matte Luxe Shadow Palette Swatches

[ Edited ]

 

For all of you who might be interested, here are some swatches of this beautiful palette:

 

( In natural light )

 

( In artificial lighting )

 

 

 

( In different kind of artificial lighting ( white ), not with the camera flash )


From left to right: Sheer Joy ( not really visible on my pale skin ), Soft Light, Warmth, Soulful, Mocha, Violet, Midnight, Noir, Love ( barely there ), Sunrise, Sunset, All Heart, Java and Iconic. Aaaand I forgot to swatch the transforming shade. :smileyhappy: I'll do it tomorrow. I have to take a photo of the swatches outside with natural light, anyway.

 

As you can see, the eye shadows are not what is considered to be true matte ( not in my book anyway :smileyhappy: ). They have subtle, barely there, sheen to them. They are so incredibly soft and buttery, very pigmented, they blend very easily, all in all very easy to work with, and they are simply gorgeous! :smileyhappy: Full review after I play around with them for awhile... :smileywink:

 

The packaging is kind of cheap looking. It's simply cardboard, with some plushy/velvety looking fabric on the outside. It's dirty pink. And I mean it really, really looks dirty. Not very appealing at all. But it's functional. It has a very strong magnet that keeps the palette securely closed. And it has a mirror inside. All in all, I don't like the packaging at all, except the strong magnet which I actually really like. But the thing is - I love the eye shadows so much, I don't even care about the packaging! :smileyvery-happy: But I have to say, I actually like this packaging way more than the packaging of TF Chocolate Bar palette which is a complete disaster! Now, THAT is a cheap stuff right there! Absolutely terrible!

 

And here they are, as promised - the swatches in natural light:

 

 

 

 

The long swatch all the way on the left side is Transforming Perl. I didn't swatch the shades with this transforming shade over them, because, honestly, I don't care about transforming this beautiful colors into something else. But if you'd like to see how the shades look "transformed", let me know. I'll swatch them for you :smileywink:

!!!  Is there a 20% off coupon without exclusions out right now?  I didn't get any e-mails about it.

No, I don't think there is one without exclusions right now. But I know they did have one in January and February. So maybe in a couple months they will. I signed up for their emails/program and they usually send me the code/coupon during the promotion. I don't know exactly how they choose the dates though.

Thanks for swatching. If you get the opportunity, can you let us know the staying power for the shadows in this palette?

Re: It Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Matte Luxe Shadow Palette Swatches

That's the plan :smileywink:

I'm totally picking this up.  I was wondering about the pigmentation because you never know with matte shadows.  Thanks so much for posting these swatches and your thoughts on it.

The pigmentation is amazing! And not only the eye shadows are so very pigmented, but that softness!!! Oh my, they are so, so, soft and buttery, like no mattes I've ever tried before! And they blend like a dream. I'm curious about staying power, though, but I think there will be no problems there... But, we'll see :smileyhappy:

I have to admit, I grab the IT palette more than the Lorac Pro...*gasp*!!

Re: It Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Matte Luxe Shadow Palette Swatches

Lol me too. i got both of them around the same time and I have to admit I was way more excited about the Lorca palette but I've bat rely used it a few times compared to this one.

Re: It Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Matte Luxe Shadow Palette Swatches

I'm loving this palette so much more than LORAC Pro. I've never really been *gasp* a fan of LORAC Pro... :smileyhappy:

Re: It Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Matte Luxe Shadow Palette Swatches

I don't think that's possible, Andy.  I adore my LORAC pro!  :smileyhappy:

Re: It Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Matte Luxe Shadow Palette Swatches

I love mine too! But I'm tired of using the same colors on my sisters. I always use gold or pewter as the main color and I always use taupe, mauve, sable, espresso, and black! I rarely go for slate... i barely made a dent in it hahah

Ooooh, you totally reminded me how much I used to love Garnet! Garnet is such a beautiful color! Gotta take dust off of it, and put it to some use :smileyvery-happy:
