    Great colors!
    • Love this palette! Colors are true and last all day for me w/o using a shadow primer.

    Nice but would prefer a duo or trio
    • I purchased the Nude Mattes, which I love for they are truly matte. I see many other companies making a similar pallette now, but they have the shimmer base. I don't often use the dark colors and would prefer a duo of light/medium or trio of light/medium/dark.

    Pass if you have yellow undertones.
    • Wish this worked for me. It's beautiful in the box, the color selection is perfect, swatches wonderfully. I have medium-light with lots of yellow undertones: every single color ended up the exact same grey mud on my eyes. Luckily, I found a good home with a pale, pink undertone friend and she loves it. I find the color selection similar to Sonia Kashuk's matte neutral eye palette which works well on me. Great palette for those pale pink girls out there, not so much otherwise.

    Absolute Favorite!
    • I really didn't need another eyeshadow palette in my collection. However, I seriously love the makeup artist Wayne Goss so I had to buy this. This works extremely well on my skin tone. (I have NC 25-30 Olive/Yellow tone). I actually use this with or without the primer every morning. I find this palette works better on my actually eyelid then swatching on my hand. I just absolutely love love love this palette. I highly recommend this palette to anyone.

    I've Been Trying to Use This
    • I have had this palette a while now, and I am a HUGE fan of Paula's products. I just cannot get this to work for me, and it just sits on my makeup counter. Maybe I don't like super-pigmented product. This just streaks and makes me look freakish. Then I have to take off all of my eye makeup to redo it. NOT a good thing to have to do when getting ready for work in the morning. I could see this working if you have a long time to blend and blend and make a masterpiece, but wow, too much work.

    Keep it simple
    • I really like this pallet. The colours really work for me. It's almost impossible to find matte, natural colours out there so when I heard about this pallet I jumped on it and I'm glad I did. The powders are soft and blendable. I like the colours. I also use it for my brows. The price is so reasonable! Oh, and you don't get one of those horrible sponge applicators with it. It comes with a very nice shadow brush. I love the one light shade with the shimmer, too. Very nicely done.

    Not so much
    • I was initially very pleased but now I'm not so keen. There aren't enough mid-tones. The palette goes from lights to darks with not much in between. Also, the colours are unrelentingly brown. I know Paula is a fan of brown eye shadow for everyone, but my brown eyes look fabulous in plums, too - whereas I can't wear the ochres or anything with a hint of yellow, which many of these shadows have. The brush is too stiff, and the pigments too light. Not my favourite PC product.

    Nice palette for checking out colors
    • I don't regret getting this palette - all but one of the colors work for me. However, I do find that I use a few of the colors (cafe au lait, clay, plum taupe) a lot more than others, so in the end I'll run out of some colors a lot sooner. For this reason, I would not repurchase at $40. If Paula were to offer custom duo or even quad compacts, then we'd be in business! These shadows apply smoothly and last all day. And to my surprise, the included brush is great!

    Amazing palette!
    • I have recently become a huge fan of Paula's Choice skincare products and being a fan of Wayne Goss too, I decided to try this palette. (I was also influenced by the many positive reviews here). When I first received the palette, I was skeptical that it would work for me as I tend to use only light shades, except for eyeliner. I watched all of the excellent tutorials by Moniquca and learned how to make it work for me. Now I'm in love with it, wouldn't want to be without it! Excellent quality.

    Not as great as I was hoping for
    • I thought this would be a great palette b/c I don't wear a ton of makeup and was tired of searching grocery store brands for the colors I wanted. However, like all of the store brands there were only 2-3 colors I actually liked. Plus most of them are matte which I think just blends with every other one. For $40 I really wish I had paid more attention to the return policy b/c I would have returned it. I do like the brush that came with it though and since they can be pricey it not a total loss.

    Best makeup purchase!
    • Beautiful, silky-smooth texture and wonderful staying power! The colours are richly pigmented and blend easily. I'm not a fan of light-coloured eyeshadows but this collection allows for some very subtle highlights when the lighter shades are paired with the gorgeous dark tones. Great for eye lining and brows too, with a slightly damp fine brush. The only improvement (for me at least) would be to include a mid-toned greyed green , but that's just a personal preference. Well done Paula!

    Not so sure
    • I really really wanted to love this palette, but I just can't rave about it the way others have. I'm not sure why nobody else seems to feel this way, but for the price and the expectation that I have of Paula's Choice products this was a bit of a letdown. The colors are lovely, but I find the shadow applies poorly and creases terribly, especially when applied with the provided brush. I don't have oily skin, but when I wear these without primer I get severe creasing within a couple of hours.

    Beyond fantastic
    • This eyeshadow collection is da bomb! The best ever. I've so far used just a few of the shades, but I'm sure that I will use all of them at some point or another. I can't wait for a fancy evening event so I can go all out and create a beautiful smokey eye with them. Thank you Paula. Please never, ever discontinue this item.

    Excellent color and quality
    • I love collections that have matte shadows and they are hard to find. I kept trying to resist purchasing these as the cost was a bit high for my budget. With my birthday discount I was able to justify it and I am glad I did. The brush is such a great quality. The colors are excellent with a lot of pigment so a little goes a long way. They do have a slight moist texture so they glide on well and look beautiful over my NXY primer. I think I will use 11 colors

    I've been waiting for this!
    • I've wanted a good nude palette in a matte finish for so long. This one fits the bill completely. There are loads of colors, some with a gray-ish tone and some warmer, so everyone should find a favorite. They are all subtle and nice for daytime wear. You will find one shimmer color on the far left side, which is lovely for a brow highlighter. Thanks Paula! Not everyone wants to have a shimmery, glittery face!!!

    Eyeshadow junkie approves!
    • I am an eyeshadow JUNKIE, no joke! And these are the best matte shadows I've ever used; most mattes look chalky and don't blend, or have low color payoff. Plus, I've been searching for the perfect MATTE mid-grey with limited luck. The one in this palette is IT! Please please must have singles! Only reason for 4 rather than 5 stars is the box; kind of light and I'm afraid of dropping it. And oh, I also have very sensitive eyes; these are fine.

    Neutral colors
    • I wasn't sure if this palette would be a good one for me because I look horrible in warm browns. I called and asked about the colors before ordering and they assured me that it was a neutral palette that someone like me, with cool undertones, could wear. When I first saw it, I was concerned because most of the colors look very warm in the pan but I will say that when I put them on, they do seem very neutral. I'm glad that they included one shimmery color with the matte's.

    Beautiful quality
    • I've been looking for a fabulous matte, neutral palette with great pigmentation and after I purchase this I actually threw out all my other eyeshadow. I use every single colour: the darkest shades are great eyeliner, especially when used with a wet brush and the medium shades are good brow definers. I would definitely purchase singles if you made them too.

    Can't believe that I don't like this...
    • Maybe I just don't know how to use this, but I have tried many times, and I give up. I LOVE Paula's skincare line, and am in my second decade of using her products. These shadows are just way too dark for me, unfortunately. Of course I am still a fan of the skincare line. This palate has gone into the drawer of the never-used stuff.

    Beautiful product
    • I was SO thrilled when this eye shadow palette was offered a few months ago. Any time Paula comes out with something new it's like Christmas. The palette is what I've been looking for. It has every color I could want and then some. It comes with a great quality brush, the colors last, it's not flaky, the colors are buildable and there are some great eyeliner options. Another beautiful high quality product!

    Best Makeup Buy!
    • I don't usually spend $40 at a time for eyeshadow. But I reasoned this was actually great value if it turned out to be a good product. It's actually a GREAT product! So worth the money. I've had compliments since wearing this palette that my eyes look lovely (using same application techniques I've always used, just new shadow). I have blue eyes that can look grey to green and every colour in the Nude Mattes palette works for me. Beautiful texture, great pigment, so easy to blend. LOVE IT!

    Love It!
    • This is a great shadow palette. The choices of colors are outstanding, blend easily and last all day. You can combine colors for an individual look, and use them as liners. I fill in my brows with one of the colors. The addition of the brush is a nice bonus. It's very handy for lining the eye, as well as applying color all over. Thanks, Paula. How about another palette with more edgy colors like purples, blues, turquoise, etc.?

    Don't be fooled by the packaging
    • Being a makeup junkie and a fan of Wayne Goss & Paula's Choice, I have to say when I saw the packaging for this palette I was unimpressed (it looked rather plain). That all changed as soon as I started using it. The pigmentation is amazing and if you love neutrals & matte shadows, this pallet is for you. I have so many high-end eye shadows/palettes (Chanel, Charlotte Tilbury, Dior, etc) and this is the palette I reach for almost everyday. Wayne & Paula know what they're doing!!! So satisfied! :)

What makes this product unique?

This unique eyeshadow palette features 11 velvety, true matte shadows plus one highlighting shadow in universally wearable shades—the kind you’ll find in any good makeup artist’s kit! In fact, the experts at Paula’s Choice consulted with makeup expert and YouTube sensation Wayne Goss on the creation of this palette.

The superbly blendable and buildable shadow colors range from soft ivory to rich brown and smoky black, making them versatile for day, night, or any time in between. The slim, mirrored case is recyclable and includes a professional-quality synthetic hair brush that allows flawless application and unlimited looks.

This palette includes 12, 0.04 oz. eyeshadows: (1) Cream, (2) Beige, (3) Pink Sugar, (4) Café au Lait, (5) Tan, (6) Chestnut, (7) Clay, (8) Plum Taupe, (9) Gunmetal Grey, (10) Chocolate Truffle, (11) Coffee (12) Onyx.

Who is this product for?
This eyeshadow palette is suitable for all skin types and flatters all skin tones.

Product Ingredients:

Talc (texture enhancer/absorbent), Mica (texture enhancer/mineral pigment), Magnesium Stearate (binding/anti-caking agent), Dimethicone (silicone-based texture enhancer), Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Polyisobutene, Synthetic Wax (binding agents), Mineral Oil (texture enhancer), Methylparaben, Propylparaben (preservatives), Tin Oxides (cosmetic pigment).

May Contain: Iron Oxides, Titanium Dioxide, Black 2

DIRECTIONS: Use the included brush plus any of your favorite eyeshadow brushes to create your ideal eye design. Be creative! The single semi-matte shade (labeled Pink Sugar) has just a touch of shimmer, perfect for adding dimension and highlighting.

Do you have shade descriptions for each color in the palette?

We certainly do! From lightest to darkest, the descriptions are as follows:
  1. Cream: pale ivory
  2. Beige: light, neutral beige
  3. Pink Sugar: pale pink with soft peachy-gold shimmer
  4. Café au Lait: light, warm taupe
  5. Tan: light brown
  6. Chestnut: russet brown
  7. Clay: warm medium brown
  8. Plum Taupe: medium cool brown
  9. Gunmetal Grey: deep, warm grey
  10. Chocolate Truffle: cool medium brown
  11. Coffee: deepest brown
  12. Onyx: classic black

Can I use these powder shadows wet or dry?

Yes. As with any smooth powder eyeshadow, wet application (by which we mean applying with a damp, not drenched, brush) intensifies the color and can be great for using powder eyeshadows as liner. Within the palette the Coffee and Onyx shades are brilliant for lining wet or dry! Applying these shadows dry gives a softer yet still pigmented look that you can easily layer if more intensity is desired.

What’s the level of shimmer in these shadows? Are they truly matte?

Other than the Pink Sugar shade, every eyeshadow color in this palette has a true matte finish—no hint of shine. But unlike matte shadows from years past, this modern matte formula never looks flat or “dirty”. It can be difficult to find truly matte eyeshadows that also have a smooth, even application and stunning appearance but Paula’s Choice Nude Mattes Eyeshadow Palette provides just that.

How long will these powder eyeshadows wear?

To some extent this always depends on what else you apply around your eyes, especially to the eyelid area. When the eyelid and underbrow area are prepped with a matte-finish foundation and/or concealer or, if you prefer, an eyeshadow primer, these shadows should wear from day to night without fading or creasing.

Can I use these with other types of eyeshadow?

Yes! But do keep in mind that mixing powder eyeshadows with cream or cream-to-powder shadows can shorten their wear time. For best results, mix with other powder eyeshadows or long-wearing shadows such as M.A.C. Paint Pots.

Who is Wayne Goss?

UK-based Wayne Goss is a popular, wonderfully talented makeup artist who has become a YouTube sensation due to his hundreds of makeup how-to videos. From contouring to bronzing to applying the perfect smokey eyeshadow design, Mr. Goss has proven his talents and won the support of millions of devoted fans. Paula’s Choice is thrilled to be working with Wayne Goss on this eyeshadow palette.
