Frugal Friday – Australis Nudist Palette

Product Breakdown:

The Nudist palette is a palette containing 8 neutral shadows by Australis.

Australis Nudist Palette 1

Pigmentation:

I find the level of pigmentation across the entire Australis range to be pretty good, and these are no exception;

​Swatched on bare skin.

Ease of application:

I find these shadows to apply easily and blend well. The double ended sponge applicator, although not ideal, means that it can easily be used on the move or for through the day for touch ups.

Longevity:

Using an eye primer I got a full work day out of these. It is worth noting that I rarely have problems with creasing eye shadows.

Packaging:

As far as I’m concerned, the packaging is pretty good, has a mirror wide enough to see both eyes at once, reasonably stable, definitely makeup bag proof, but perhaps not hand bag proof.

Anything else worth mentioning?:

None of these shadows are new colours. If you are an Australis fan, you may well find you own many of these shadows, however it is convenient to have them all in one place.

As the name would suggest, this is clearly Australis’ answer to the Urban Decay Naked Palette. It is smaller and has fewer colours, however it is much, much cheaper and considerably easier to get in Australia than the Urban Decay Naked Palette.

My sources tell me this is a limited edition palette, so get in quick.
