I picked up this gorgeous nude palette a while back in Boots from Collection. It was such a bargain retailing at £3.99 (think it's currently £2.99!) & I couldn't believe my luck to find one without finger prints. Does anyone else find that the most annoying thing in the world?! Why can't people just use tester palettes..
First point I want to comment on is the pigmentation of these eye shadows. Oh my goodness, you seriously only need the tiniest amount on your brush & it does take a while to blend in, but they all have fantastic coverage.
The shades are also very shimmery. If you're not a fan of glitter or non-matte shades, I'd steer clear of this palette. I love glitter as much as the next 5 year old but even I struggled keeping it from straying down onto my cheeks when applying it!

My favourite shades to use together are Ochre & Golden Brown, such beautiful warm tones for a day time look, but I find Mink & Nutty perfect for a sophisticated evening look.
Have you tried any of the palettes from Collection Cosmetics?
Oh & I reviewed the W7 In The Nude palette a few weeks ago if you wanted to pop over for a read! I found it was a perfect dupe for the Urban Decay Naked palette.
