I firmly believe there is no such thing as having too many neutral brown eye shadows. *nods affirmatively to self* Ever since I watched a video by Emily Noel (here) on her recommendations for “nude” or “naked” eye shadows, I had been dreaming of a particularity beautiful piece from Physicians Formula. But as all good things go, it was incredibly if not impossible to locate. I had never seen this one in the drugstores here and I had been worried it was a limited edition release which I missed. I even did an ebay hunt only to find that I was too late to purchase the single one that I found. All seemed lost and I had no hope of ever seeing it…until…
I was dropping by a local drugstore on a tight schedule to pick up a much need mascara and with the only five minutes I had available I made a mad run across the aisles when suddenly a tag for a Physicians Formula sale caught my eye. Low and behold one Nude eyes palette was just sitting there on the hanger all by itself!
While it certainly isn’t hard to find a brown eyeshadow set (usually in a duo or quad) in the drugstore, it’s very difficult to find a palette with a large variation. Pigmentation also comes as a huge problem with drugstore eye shadows but having previously used a shimmer strip kit before, I feel reasonably safe with my purchase.
As you see here, this set leans on the cool/taupe side of brown and although I would usually shy away from this side of the spectrum the NYX Ts17 trio had me braving to try something new. I think someday I will end up with the Urban Decay Naked palette or the Too Faced set but for now I’m always going to be looking for affordable options and this seems like a great way to start!
Have you spotted this palette in your drugstore yet?
