I’m SO excited today to tell you about Neve Cosmetics new build your own palettes. I do get pretty excited about makeup, but I’m excited about this especially because these eyeshadows are easily some of the best I’ve ever used, oh and they’re really affordable too!
If you’re not familiar with Neve Cosmetics. they’re an Italian based brand but you can also buy most of their products from Cute Cosmetics and Cocktail Cosmtics in the UK. I’ve previously reviewed a load of their products including an amazing brightly coloured eyeshadow palette, as well as some lovely nude lipstick shades, and I’ve always been impressed.
So lets take a look at their new custom palettes! Firstly you choose your palette, which has four pan spaces, and comes in a range of six colours. Each empty palette is EUR 5.90 (£4.20), and they’re made out of a sturdy, glossy finish plastic, with the Neve Cosmetics logo printed on the lid.
You then choose your single eyeshadows to add to your palette. Neve have a massive selection of 50 different eyeshadows, with a variety of finishes. They also have single blushers, bronzers and a highlight that fit this palette too. Each single eyeshadow costs from EUR 4.20 (£3.06) meaning your completed palette could cost as little as £16.44. (Also these products are all on sale at the moment, so it would actually work out cheaper still!)
And this is the palette I created – isn’t it just beautiful!? I’m so pleased with it! The eyeshadows are so much prettier than I could have ever imagined!
If you look at the eyeshadow page on the Neve Cosmetics site here, you’ll see that the eyeshadow images really do not do the products justice at all. Just look at Fenice below, it’s such a beautiful shimmer shade, but unfortunately this does not translate on Neve’s site. This just shows how good product imagery really does make all the difference!
Let’s take a closer look at the shades. First up is Fenice – an intense warm coppery duochrome shade with a pink glow. This is definitely a wow shade for me, I love copper shades and I think they look stunning on any colour eyes too. This shade is just perfection to me!
Next up is Abracadabra – this is a pale cerulean blue duochrome shade with a very light green shimmer. Again a gorgeous shade that would look lovely as a wash of colour across the lids.
And Chimera – this is a stunning deep purple duochrome shade with pink shimmer and auburn glitter.
And lastly Mela Stregata – this is a really interesting colour, it’s described as a fuchsia purple duochrome with aqua green shimmers. It looks amazing when it catches the light!
I’m just in love with all of these shades, you really could create endless looks with them and I can’t wait to get stuck in and start experimenting! Also, I love that they’re all a decent size, so you’ll get plenty of use out of them.
And of course the all important swatches. JUST LOOK AT THE PIGMENTATION GUYS! I really was wowed when I first tried these out, the shadows were all buttery soft, easy to apply and blend and the pigmentation was just out of this world.
These shadows truly are stunning, as well as being beautiful to work with. I’m so glad I’ve had the chance to try them out, I’ll have to make myself another palette soon – maybe as a Christmas treat!?
