From all luxury makeup brands, Kevyn Aucoin has a special place in my heart. Not only it offers my favorite concealer and mascara, but also, it’s one of the brands that followed for years. This holiday season, Kevyn Aucoin releases NudePop Pro Eyeshadow Palette that features a lot of creamy neutrals and glitter eyeshadows. I had a chance to swatch the palette before it launches at Sephora and I’m super excited for you to try this new release.
If you remember last year’s Electropop Palette that featured 12 metallic looks, the new Kevyn Aucoin NudePop Pro Eyeshadow Palette is its cousin. The creators picked 3 most loved chrome shades and spiced them out with matte and satin neutral eyeshadows. That way, you can create lots of different looks using just one beautifully designed palette.
“NudePop is all about neutral eyeshadows, redefined. Each of 12 rich creamy textures are flattering on all skin tones. Take your look from day to night with one swipe payoff!”
The palette comes in a heavy plastic packaging with the model photo and gold embossing on top. The bottom lists eyeshadow shades and product details. There is a big mirror inside and 12 wisely arranged shadows.
Each shade from this 12-shades eyeshadow palette is designed to use both wet and dry. The NudePop Pro palette features 12 shades, some of them are matte, some are satin, and the rest are chrome.
Creation (satin), Surreal (satin), Hue (matte), Graffiti (chrome), Sculpt (matte), Sketch (matte), Mosaic (chrome), Design (matte), Canvas (matte), Masterpiece (chrome), Portrait (satin), Mural (satin).
I didn’t notice any inconsistencies with the shadow pigmentation. The mattes are buttery and the metallics are easy to blend. The shades work the best if applied on top of a concealer or eyeshadow primer, but even if you decide to skip the skin prep they perform beautifully. I especially enjoyed the shade Mosaic — it’s not your typical metallic brown and I love pigmented it is.
Below, are the swatches of the Kevyn Aucoin releases NudePop Pro Eyeshadow Palette. I swatched vertically from left to right.
$57 at Sephora. Launch Date: 9/21 online, 10/5 in stores.
The Best Part
With this palette, they got me at the packaging design! Also, love the pigmentation of metallics – it’s out of this world! It’s been my favorite palette to use lately and I can’t get enough of it!
The Worst Part
Many people already have too many neutral eyeshadow palettes in their collections, so it might be repetitive.
It’s a great gift for yourself if you are a fan of the brand! Because it features such a fabulous design, it will be also a great gift option.
