Hello beautifuls, if you are regular to my Facebook Page, which by the way, had reached 4000 likes, you must be knowing that I am going to review makeup products and dry skin related products this week. So today, I am going to talk about the Nelf USA 6 Musketeers Eye Shadow Palette.

About Nelf USA 6 Musketeers Eye Shadow Palette:

It is opened by a magnetic flap.Inside there are 6 shadows, an applicator and a small but good quality mirror. There are pictures and guidelines of 4 different looks. 


My Experience: Today I am going to review the Nelf USA 6 MusketeersEye Shadow Palette in 04. First thing noticeable with the shadow palette is the beautiful packaging in black. The clever packaging is no fuss, has all the things that a palette should have, including a magnetic flap, a mirror, a double sided applicator and a guideline for the new makeup enthusiasts to try from. Now coming to the shades. I think the shades look outstanding in the palette. There are 6 colours- starting from top left, a dark pearlescent charcoal, a pearlescent moss green, a shimmery whitish silver, a shimmery copper, a true gold and a greyish silver. While swatching I found the 2 dark colours a bit flaky, while the gold and copper shades are maximum pigmented. The silver shades are also a bit difficult to work with as those have a tendency to crease. But as suggested on their website, it is better to use a primer underneath so that you can make maximum use of the palette in a better way. 

Nelf USA 6 Musketeers Eye Shadow Palette in 04 is a very nice palette given the price. The shades are wonderful and seldom have I seen a palette with such nice selection of shades. It is more or less usable for lovers of neutral and earthy tones, and perfect for smoky eyes look. I have 2 of my favourite shades in copper and gold. I am sure this palette is going to be used by me a lot. It has shades that can complement any skin tone.

So I have done a day to night look here, where I just used the lighter shades for the day time and lined with the charcoal one, while for the night time I used both the darker shades at the corner of my eyes and blended in the colour. The makeup lasted for a pretty good time, Although the darker colours started to smudge around the corners after 2 hours or so. But I guess using a primer would have prevented it.

   Night Look

Frankly, at Rs.425 Nelf USA 6 Musketeers Eye Shadow Paletteis a must-have in your kitty. I would strongly recommend it to all. The ingredients list is also clearly mentioned at the back of the palette so you can see if you are allergic to something. I would rate it a 4.3/5 and wish they will improve the pigmentation of the darker shades. And also, availability is an issue now.
