Australis Nudist Eye Shadow Palette



I was extremely happy to pick up the Australis Nudist Eye Shadow Palette on Monday from my local Target for only $9.95! I've been on the prowl for this one for a little while now after seeing another review on it.
I'm a big nudie fan, and I love natural colours as they're so easy to turn from an every day look to a going out look! 




Needless to say, the colours are gorgeous. Sadly, all of the colours are more glittery and there are no matted colours, which is probably the only downside of this palette. I'm a fan of glittery colours mostly because I feel they make my eyes really pop, but it is a bit of a shame to have no matted colours at all. You never know when you'll need them!



Here are a few of the colours swatched, maybe you can try to pick them! The lighter colours didn't really show up, which is why I didn't bother with all of them. But as you can see they are highly pigmented, and they go on beautifully. I'm really happy with the outcome of the colours, they're so easy to blend and manage too.




As you can see here, the colours aren't original to the palette but come from different Australis palettes before it, but I'm not complaining. A palette with eight nudie colours altogether for only $9.95 is an excellent deal.
The palette itself comes with a double ended applicator. I never, ever use these for some reason, but it's really handy as I feel this is an excellent palette to travel with, something I could throw in my handbag, and if I can't be bothered digging out my precious brushes, I have a handy little brush and mirror right there for me. So all in all, it's a very handy little set.
I would definitely repurchase this!


Have you tried the Australis Nudist Palette, or any of the colours from another palette you may have tried already? What do you think of nude palettes?

  5. Wow, such a good price! Lovely colours too, although I'm with you on the matte colours - the ideal palette needs to have both mattes and shimmers/glitters so that it's versatile enough to be used for day and night. But at that price, you could easily buy a couple of mattes to go with it and it would still be well under the price of Urban Decay's Naked palettes.

  6. Oh this is gorgeous! I really need to hunt this down!
    It would be even nicer if it had a couple of matte's; but like you said, maybe they should release another palette!
