As soon as I saw the Rodial Smokey Eye Sculpt Eyeshadow Palette* it was instant love! For an eyeshadow palette obsessive, this ticks all the boxes for the perfect nude palette. In today’s post I’m going to be telling you all about it and why you need it in your life.
This is designed to be the ultimate collection of nude eyeshadows, a mini palette of Rodial makeup joy. It arrives in matte black box, which is decorated with a silver Rodial logo, plus some simple white lettering. When you get inside, you find more classic Rodial packaging, a jet-black, soft touch palette. The palette is a very similar shape and size to the Urban Decay Naked Basic palettes, it’s a good size for chucking into your handbag or your travel makeup collection. When you flick open the palette you find the six eyeshadows and a mirror that spans the inside of the whole palette.
The shades feature everything you could need for that everyday eye, from that simple basic finish, to a full smokey eye with a winged liner. The shades are a range of textures (there are mattes, pearl and shimmer formulations) and the colours are just as good too. At the far left of the palette there is a light cream, followed by a whole range of brown hues (which include a gorgeous shimmer shade) and a black eyeshadow right at the end. My exposure to Rodial makeup has been quite limited, but bits I have tried have been really impressive. The Rodial Smokey Eye Sculpt Eyeshadow Palette really doesn’t let the side down, featuring a wardrobe of highly pigmented, creamy, blendable eyeshadows (you can check out the swatches in the picture below).
This palette would make a lovely gift for anyone makeup fan this Christmas. It’s definitely going to be the palette that I pop in my handbag, as it’s fantastic for touchups and for last minute desk-to-dancefloor transformations. The palette isn’t hideously expensive either, it retails for £35 and it really looks (and performs) like a premium product. Don’t miss your chance to add this beauty to your collection, you can pick it up here from the Rodial website.
