    Love it!
    • I love this palette! The colors are beautiful and I have tried them all. They stay on all day and into the evening yet are easy to clean off at night. I have used them as eyeliner, either just as the powder or moistening them for a more defined line. I'd like to see them also offered as single colors as I use a couple of them more than others. What a great addition to your lineup. Thank you!

    Game Changer for crepe eyes
    • I can wear eyeshadow again! A few years ago, I began to get that crepeness on my eyelids. I switched to matte eyeshadow, then to cream eyeshadow. Nothing helped. Eyeshadow just made me look older. Then I got this palette as a gift with purchase from PC. I not sure why, but I can wear this shadow without making my eyes look old--like Cruella DeVil old. Great product!

    Wonderful Eye-shadow.
    • This is terrific eye-shadow, with soft, blendable, matte shades. The only thing that they don't work well for is lining the eye; even when using a wet brush, I had trouble with them flaking all around my eyes. I would have given a 5 star rating if they were better as liner.

    GREAT palette! A couple of thoughts...
    • Kudos for delivering something that is INCREDIBLY hard to find (although it shouldn't be) -- a matte palette that is almost entirely nude and has high-quality shadows with wonderful texture. Another vote for selling these shades as singles when we use up our favorites. One star off because it's not *truly* "universal" - a second palette for cooler toned gals like myself would be perfect, several of these shades are too warm.

    Cafe au Lait!
    • Joining the chorus: please offer singles/refills! Cafe au Lait has become my perfect go-to shade and I would love to buy more. Some of the other colors are too dark or warm for my pale, cool-toned skin, but quality is spot-on: soft but not too powdery (I'm talking to you, Urban Decay Naked Basics). I'm studying tutorials to get a better idea of how to use the darker shades and make better use of the palette as a whole. Gunmetal Gray is becoming a favorite as well!

    Best eyeshadow ever!
    • Wow! Every time I use this, it looks beautiful, and I am no make-up expert. In fact, I didn't wear any make-up for years. These eye shadows apply so creamily and blend so well, that I want to wear it every day. The matte colors work well on my 47 y.o. skin. I will never go back to sparkly shadows. Even with my light, cool-toned skin, almost every color works well. I only wish there were a few singles of "fun" colors, like a neutral medium to dark blue or a peach.

    Moms heart grew 3 times this day
    • Really really like this palette. I must say, i am impressed. At first i wrote it off when i swatched it...BUT once i actually used it...i was impressed at how well the color blends. Which is big for matte shades....i mean, my own mom managed to actually ask about my eyeshadow....ANDDD went on to say "i like it, looks good" ....once i came to....i knew you deserved some love about these eyeshadows

    A surprising success!
    • I have freakishly sensitive skin around my eyes. It's tough to find eyeshadow that I can wear. I took a chance with Paula, and I love these! I still can't wear them every day or my lids do get irritated, but I wish I could wear it daily due to the look. They still wear much better than any other "pressed" shadows for this sensitive girl. Please sell the colors individually! The brush that came with it causes a flaky mess, but with my other brushes it has worked like a charm.

    Love it
    • I posted a 5 lippie review on Makeupalley under ashleywilkes for this palette, where I depotted all of the shades except for the black one and placed them into my Trish McEvoy planner. I REALLY hope you don't discontinue this palette. I'm going through the muted chocolate/nude shades like crazy. For reference, I use your Healthy Choice pressed powder in Neutral as a foundation and I also use your chocolate nude eyeshadow shades as a contour powder. They work great if you use the right brush.

    Great Palette - If You Are An Autumn
    • Unfortunately, I am a Summer skin-toned woman, and I find most of the shades to be much too warm/yellowish for my complexion. How about eyeshadow singles in a variety of shades with build your own duos and quads like Bobbi Brown or Urban Decay has? And with more cool toned shades! P.S. I do agree the texture of these shadows are wonderful - but most of them just don't look good on me.

    Love it, with one exception
    • This is a great palette, with a full array of highly pigmented shadows. My suggestion though is to have two shimmers for the brow bone instead of one. I'm out of the one, but still have 70/80% of the other colors left.

    Beautiful colors!
    • Lovely color selection that would flatter anyone (especially those of us who have outgrow shimmer and sparkle)! The only reason for the "4" stars is the price point. I think it's a little high and too close to expensive brands.

    • I got this to replace my urban decay naked basics which was my go-to palette to add shadows to looks that were incomplete. This palette has many more options and is much better in quality! It is a must-have to go with all of the shadows and palettes in your collection to really use them to their fullest. Buy this palette!

    Must-have!
    • I absolutely adore this palette. It is hands-down the most useful, beautiful, easy, well-rounded palette in the world! If you don't have very much eye shadow, this is a great starting and possibly ending point. The colors go very well together, you can create so many looks, and the quality and texture of the shadows is impeccable!

    Lovely!
    • I have never been an eyeshadow person but this palette might just change my mind. The colors are a nice mixture of warm and cool tones in cream, taupe, tan, chocolate, and coffee, plus the black and the pale sparkle. The palest color goes on a bit chalky but with a light hand it is still nice. The brush that comes with the palette is great quality and very easy to use for that first wash of color.

    Best matte eyeshadows ever!!!!!
    • I'm really impressed by the quality of these eyeshadows. The texture is very soft and creamy with strong colour pay-off. And the colours themselves are very lovely and versatile, you can do a soft neutral daytime look or go dark & smokey. Absolutely love this palette!! I've always worn shimmery eyeshadow since I started wearing makeup but this has opened my eyes to the beauty of matte. And the one shimmer color works beautifully as a highlight on the inner corner of the eyes - LOVE IT!!!

    Wonderful eyeshadow!
    • I highly recommend this eye shadow palette. I have never owned a palette with such high quality shadow and the range of neutral colors is great. I use my TrishMcEvoy angled crease brush with this palette which makes it really easy to blend the darker colors into the eye crease. Use an eye primer first for the best result. Wayne Goss is well known on you tube so I figured this would be a good product and it is. Paula and Wayne should collaborate more often!!

    Best Matte Eyeshadow Palette!
    • Wow! I'm shocked! Hands down the best matte palette out there. I am in love with the texture of the eyeshadows, and I use all of the shades (minus the shimmery one). The shades are mainly warm and neutral, but they are all lovely, workable colors. I wish Paula sold the eyeshadows separately too as I fear I will run out of a few shades. Since I received this palette, my MAC, Urban Decay, and Bobbi Brown shadows haven't been touched. Please don't discontinue this palette, Paula!!

    Beautiful Pallet
    • I'm exclusive to Lancome and MAC eyeshadow but thought I'd try. At first, I was disappointed on how it went on. I immediately used it with my Mac brush and realized it was Paula's brush that was not doing it justice. It goes on smooth and lasts. The matte is stunning and I have re-purchased. I want 2 of the lightest Paula for the base! - Lose the one "sort of shiny" 3rd lightest, it doesn't spread like the matte's. Only flaw.

So glad because I wouldn't have chosen it. I used a shade for my brows and because I was able to try this I'm now going to buy the Brow cream duo as well as the blonde tint brow...Love your ethics too...I'm yours for life

    Love it!
    • I didn't get this earlier because from the photo I thought it would be too warm. I have light neutral skin and don't prefer to use warm toned makeup. This is great! Glad it was part of a promo because now that I've tried it, I love it. It goes on so easily and I can apply it quickly. I've never used eyeshadow for liner before but I like these darker shades across my upper lashes and it is quicker to apply than eyeliner. The brush that comes with it is good for liner and contour.

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.
