EYESHADOW PALETTES, MAKEUP

Eye Looks of the Week 2/10-2/14 with the ND Love Eyeshadow Palette

MU looks 2.10-2.14

I’m back with my thoughts on the formula and the performance of the ND Love eyeshadow palette that I swatched last week. I have to say that I watched a few reviews on YouTube and the consensus was very mixed. Some people complained about the mattes being patchy while others didn’t. I got lucky and haven’t experienced any patchiness or inconsistencies.

Even though I only did 3 looks this week, I managed to use all of the shadows. It’s been super cloudy here so most of the lighting in the pics look like sh*t. I have a new ring light on the way so this shouldn’t be an issue after this week. Keep reading to see my looks and the rest of my thoughts (and ignore my brows again).

Look #1

This look was inspired by one I saw on Natasha Denona’s IG page. I tried something different by going in with the crease shade before doing the transition. Commitment had fallout even when applying with my finger. Trust went on smooth and is deeper than it looks in the pan so it was a great shade for the outer V. Dream was very beautiful and easy to apply (this shade was patchy for others).

Look #2

This was another look inspired by Natasha’s IG page. I had no issues with any of these shades. I do wish that Heartbeat was a bit deeper, but I think that can be achieved by adding a little bit of Commitment. There was some fallout with Pure Love, so make sure you do your eyes before your base if you plan on using this shade.

Look #3

First was applied to the inner corner but it didn’t feel like the look was complete so I added Lifetime on top. I didn’t experience any fallout or patchiness with these shadows. Sorry for the crappy pic but it was the best I could get.

Final Thoughts

Overall I love the ND Love eyeshadow palette and found it easy to use. I recommend using a dense brush to pack the color on and then using a fluffy brush to blend. If you go in with a fluffy brush first, you won’t get much color payoff with these shadows. Not a bad thing, just something to keep in mind.
Another thing to note is that I used the Urban Decay Primer Potion eyeshadow primer for the 3rd look. The colors weren’t as vibrant as they were when I used the Anastasia Beverly Hills eye primer the other 2 days. That being said, the shadows in the palette work best when using a tackier base like the ABH primer.
If you experience any patchiness with your shadows, look into exchanging or returning it because I had no issues. Seems like there may have been a bad batch with those problems as reviews have been 50/50. I’m keeping my palette since the performance was good for me, so keep an eye out for more looks.
Will you go pick this palette up? If you already have it, how do you like it? If you want to see other color combinations let me know. Leave me a comment below.
