Snatural Eyeshadow Palette No 1

Very disappointed in this palette. I bought this from an on-line popular retailer in the UK and also gave this a 2 star raiting, but they removed my review 2 days later. Presumably, the maker of the palette didn’t like my review. There are still no reviews for this palette on line with this retailer and they’ve been selling it for approx 2/3 months now. Firstly, it’s made in China. Eyeshadows are cheaper to manufacture in China. I was disappointed to see that & I was expecting it to have been made in USA or Italy and for this price point, I can’t see where the money has gone as it certainly isn’t in the packaging. Cheap and cardboard. The eyeshadows swatched well on my arm. However there are few mid brown shades that are very similar. They are all very powdery and there’s a lot of kick-back in the pans. The palette is white and therefore quickly gets dirty. The eyeshadows blend out a lot on the eye, virtually to nothing, so you have to dip in a lot to get any depth of colour. I would rather a more pigmented eye shadow that I can control than very powdery eyeshadow that blends to nothing and needs a lot of building. I have pale skin and there’s a mid toned lavender beige shade which looks like it would have been a good transition shade, however it doesn’t even show up on my eyelids. The shimmers are all very disappointing. If you are expecting a shimmery metallic pop then you will be disappointed as these are all flat metallic and very flat, even put on eye lid with a finger. I used various primers, Urban Decay, Anastasia and P Louise. I wasn’t happy with any of my looks as they just looked muddy. There is no very light metallic, apart from a light pink duo chrome, which looks white in the pan. This colour goes with none of the others as none of them have any pink undertones. The glitters are ok....but they’re very specific grey based tones, which are, I think, are hard to wear, especially for myself who has brown eyes. All in all, for the price point, I’ve wasted my money as this is not a palette I will reach for. If you have this sort of money to spend, I’d buy two Anastasia Palettes instead, or Natasha Denona’s latest offerings which exceed this in quality, by far.

I’m based in the UK and I reviewed this with the on-line retailer that I bought it from. I gave an honest but poor review and they published it, but 2 days later it was gone. I can only think someone wasn’t happy as my review was and still iswas the only review on line in the UK so far.....are all the others poor too? Well, here is my review. Firstly, the price point of this should warrant a good quality eye shadow palette and with his name on it, you expect that it will be. The packaging is cheap, all cardboard. It’s also made in China, where it’s cheaper to manufacture cosmetics too. I was disappointed, but hoping that the shadow formula would still be good. On initial swatching, the mattes and glitter formulas seemed quite good, but they perform so differently on the eyelids. I am pale skinned and there’s a mid toned Matt called Vintage, which doesn’t even show up. The mattes blend out very well, but they lose a lot of depth, so have to take a lot of building and I mean a lot. I would rather have more control with a more pigmented shadow than have to dip into the pan four times to get required depth. Due to this, they are very powdery. There’s a lot of very fine powder kick back with all the shadows and with the glitters, which are actually quite nice, but there’s a lot of glitter fall out onto the face within minutes. Some of the mid-toned brown mattes are similar in shade and tone, which disappoints too. The shimmer metallics are ‘flat’, really flat, none shimmer. You will be disappointed like me if you are looking for anything like that. I applied with finger too and it made no difference. There’s no really light shimmer metallic either, apart from a very light pink (which looks white in the pan, so is deceiving when buying on line) but as there are no other real pink toned shades within the palette, one or two have red undertones, it looks odd paired with any of the mattes. Staying power, in the times I’ve kept the shadows on my face, is good, with little fading, but I’ve always disliked the looks these give. I have used various primers with this palette ( Anastasia, P Louise, urban decay) and each time have either had to remove my shadows or I haven’t been happy. I won’t be using this again and it’s such a waste. It’s too expensive and there are a lot better out there for nearly half the price.

Neutral loving people, REJOICE !!!! The Snatural palette is gorgeous and a dream come true for someone like myself who is not a fan of color. For reference, my current faves (or used to be before Snaural found its way to me) are Tom Ford's Cocoa Mirage and Natasha Denona's Biba palette and now, Snatural, which has earned my No 1 Spot. The quality is excellent and the eyeshadows all pair nicely with one another and blend like a dream. I played around and created so many different looks and find that the eyeshadows can be layered and are truly buildable. Boudoir is gorgeous !!!!! and truly makes my brown eyes pop ..... Scott Barnes, please make individual and larger sizes of Boudoir, pretty please ..... even my H commented that my eyes looked golden and today, walked in, smiled and without prompting said "you look f@$*ing hot today." The only thing differently I did was use my Scott Barnes palettes, all fabulous, and I was having a good makeup day.... lol. ETA: I have been using this palette everyday since I received it and I wanted to add that a huge issue I have with a lot of palettes is when they have shades, which I cannot use e.g. golds and bronzy eyeshadows, because they simply do not work well with my coloring, however, I started out using all the shades which I normally would not think of using, but with the Snatural palette, I have NOT found one eyeshadow, that does work for me .... I am so in love with this palette .... I have been impressed with each eyeshadow and brown-eyed girls, let me tell you, Snatural is the perfect eyeshadow palette for us.
