Neve Cosmetics have a range of seven different eyeshadow palettes; all of which contain ten eyeshadow pans, as well as selling the eyeshadow and blush pans individually. I love a good neutral palette so when I saw the Neve Cosmetics Elegantissimi Eyeshadow Palette €26,80/£19.46*, it was love at first sight. The Neve Cosmetics Elegantissimi Eyeshadow Palette contains a range of neutral shades that have a wet/dry formula which is enriched with vitamins to ensure longwear and comfort. The shadows are packaged within a long, purple, plastic palette which feels quite robust, but there isn’t a mirror included unfortunately. Each of the pans are huge and contain 3 grams of shadow, and are magnetised so you can remove and reposition them should you wish to.
Coco: a matte pure white.
Etoile: a extremely pale butter colour with a satin sheen.
Butterfly: a matte cream.
Bonbon: a matte pale apricot.
Noisette: a pale hazelnut with a satin sheen.
I am seriously blown away by all ten eyeshadows in the Neve Cosmetics Elegantissimi Eyeshadow Palette.. the pigmentation is incredible – all of these swatches are without a primer. I’ve never seen eyeshadows of this quality from any other brand before, they’re just so buttery and smooth with next to no fallout especially as the pans are so huge too. I cannot rave about this palette enough, it really does put the likes of the Urban Decay Naked Palettes to shame considering this palette is only £20. There isn’t one disappointing shade within the palette, and the mattes are the best I’ve ever tried which is a pretty bold statement – I hope they choose to launch more palettes as this one is amazing!
