Laura Lee Los Angeles Nudie Patootie Palette

Hey guys! So if you have been following my blog for awhile, you will know that one of my favourite Youtuber’s is Laura Lee. I bought her first eye shadow palette and I loved it! So when I saw that she can out with a new palette I immediately bought it. This eye shadow palette is called Nudie Patootie and features a range of nude shades and a few sparkly shades. It has 14 shades and costs $45 USD; it was around $65 CAD for with me shipping, and I did have to pay duties on the palette. The shipping was relatively quick.

The packaging on this palette is beautiful. I love the the pink gradient on the front with the name in a glossy embossed lettering. The logo and sides are the palette are rose gold which is so cute. The palette comes with a large mirror and feels sturdy. The eye shadow pans are about the size of a loonie. This palette is long, basically the size of my forearm. This makes it a little impractical to travel with because it doesn’t fit into my makeup bag. But the palette is so beautiful that it is nice to display.

The quality on this palette in unbelievable. The shadows are creamy and pigmented while being extremely blendable. I will say that the shadows translate a little darker on the lid.  For example, I went in with the shade Bare thinking it would be a nice light wash of pink and man it was PINK. The website says there are only two metallic shades, Au Naurale and Jaybird, but I find that Exposed is more metallic than shimmery. These shades are goregous and super reflective but are a little hard to work with. Laura (and the website) suggests to use a glitter glue or a wet brush with these shades. I tried the wet brush method and while it was beautiful, I did get a ton of fallout. I have yet to tried it with glitter glue since I don’t own any. The shimmers, besides exposed, are very easy to work with and both a brush and finger work well. There is a nice mix of warm toned and cool toned shades, so it is a very inclusive warm palette.

When I saw this palette I was blown away and thought it was beautiful. And then I got the palette and opened it and was like…what look do I do. I like the palette, but I find that the shades are not ones that I really gravitate to. I have created some nice looks from this palette and will continue to use it, but of her two palettes I prefer her other one more.

And that is my overall review of the Laura Lee Los Angeles new palette! Let me know if there are any other palette that you want me to review. Should I do a palette collection post? Let me know!

Laura Lee Palette Review

Hey guys! So today’s post will be a review of the Laura Lee’s first eyeshadow palette, Cat’s Pajamas. For those of you who have been following me for a while, you might that Laura Lee is probably one of my favourite beauty Youtubers. So when she came out with her own makeup brand, Laura Lee Los Angeles, I knew I was going to buy her first product. The palette retails for $40 USD. The palette is currently out of stock, but it’s restock date it being announced Friday.

The eyeshadow comes with 10 eyeshadow, which equals out to $4 per eyeshadow. I know some people had issue with the price, but I think that it’s worth it. The quality of the palette itself is nice. It comes with a mirror inside and also the packaging is so pretty! I love the sparkly outside, I can just sit and look at it forever. I think the price is reasonable, and comparable to prices that you would see for palettes in Sephora.

I think was also makes this palette so worth it is the quality of these shadows. They are amazing and everything I want in a shadow. They a creamy and pigmented. There is a little extra shadow when you dip your brush into the pan, but nothing crazy. The shimmery eyeshadows have a little fallout, but they are so pigmented that you don’t need to use any setting spray to make the shadow look good. Honestly it is such good quality, and I would say they are similar in texture and performance to the Jaclyn Hill x Morphe palette.

Finally I really like the colour selection. The top row has some warm browns, a gold and brown shade. The brown shade has purple and mauve shades. These are my personal favourite shades to wear on my eyes. Something I really like about this palette is that there is a matte cream shade. I hate when this kind of shade isn’t in a palette because I need a shade like this to set my eyeshadow primer. I think there palette is very well rounded; I have created both every day eye looks as well as bold glam looks. I think the only thing I would like is many instead of two similar purple shades a cool toned brown shade. This palette is definitely warmed toned, but I think one cool tone shade would be nice to use with the purple shades.

Overall I think this palette is amazing. I am very happy that I got it because I have used it so much, and I think this would be an excellent palette to travel with. I would highly recommend this palette to you guys. I am really excited to see what else Laura Lee comes out!
