New! Wet N Wild AU NATUREL Nude Awakening Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

When I saw that Wet N Wild brought their Au Naturel eyeshadow palettes to Canada, I had to pick one up! For just over $5 for 10 shades, you can't really go wrong.  And, they are cruelty free! 🐰

The Au Naturel palette comes in 2 shades; Nude Awakening (the one I purchased), and Bare Necessities. The Nude Awakenings one was calling my name!

There are 5 matte shades in the palette which include an ivory, mid tone crease shade, and some darker shades. These are what really sold me on the palette, that plus the oh-so-amazing and unique burgundy shade in here! 3 of the lighter shimmer shades are great everyday lid colours. Personally, I would only use the last 3 darker shades as liners.

As you can see, I didn't sugarcoat the swatches. Although some of the shades are rather dry and crumbly, they apply rather well to the lids with a primer. There is fall-out but if you tap off your brush it's all good. These swatches are 2 swipes of each shade over a primer (since I always use an eye primer).

The lighter shades are not very pigmented but for that very reason, I find them great for everyday looks. The darker shades are pigmented, but some go on a bit patchy and can difficult to blend, so I apply the matte ivory all over which helps them blend more easily.

Here is a simple look using the very beautiful and unique burgundy shade that's in the palette. This shade blended more easily than the darker shades in the palette.

I find myself reaching for this palette daily since I purchased it and am really enjoying the looks that I'm creating with it

Have you tried this one of these new WNW palettes? What are your thoughts?
