Current Obsession - The Nudes MATTE Palette

Friends, if you've been reading this blog for a while you know that I'm a hardcore beauty junkie!

Today I want to share with you a product that I've absolutely fallen in love with - The Nudes Matte eye
shadow Paula's Choice. Originally I was going to post about it in a Three Things post, but love it so much that I wanted to dedicate an entire post to it.

You might recognize the name Paula's Choice from THIS post, where I talk about the item that I absolutely cannot live without (seriously, I feel the need to have this lip balm with me at ALL times!) I also use Paula's Choice skin care, and can honestly say that it's completely transformed my skin in just a few short months. (Perhaps that's worthy of it's own post?)

So, here's what the palette looks like on the outside:

 ...but more excitingly, here is what it looks like on the inside:

 This palette contains 12 colors - 11 matte, and 1 with a slight, very wearable for all ages shimmer (pink sugar).

The names are (1) Cream, (2) Beige, (3) Pink Sugar, (4) CafĂ© au Lait, (5) Tan, (6) Chestnut, (7) Clay, (8) Plum Taupe, (9) Gunmetal Grey, (10) Chocolate Truffle, (11) Coffee (12) Onyx.

The colors are all on the warm side, and have a slightly creamy texture when you put them on. They blend flawlessly, and make a fantastic addition to your makeup collection!

Here they are swatched on my arm (the first two are hard to see, but cream - the very first one that you really can't see - is the perfect, matte vanilla shade!)

My favorites of the group are cream, as a beautiful brow bone color, tan all over and chocolate truffle as a liner. I also really adore pink sugar, the slightly shimmery one. I love it all over the lid, with a quick swipe of mascara for an everyday, super easy look. I'm thinking I need to pick up the Paula's Choice mascara next to see if it's amazing as this palette!
