Wow, so it’s been so long since I’ve actually written a blog post. I’ve had these photos sitting in my draft section for way too long and thought it was about time to get the post up. I’m a bit rusty so bear with me lol.
The Models Prefer Rose Nudes Palette has been out for awhile now and retails at $12.99AUD and is only available from Priceline (FYI Models Prefer is a Priceline exclusive brand). They have a couple of other palettes out in this range a Black (I guess for smokey looks) and the original Nude (which I also own, and is shown below next to the new Rose Palette). I get a fair bit of use out of both of the versions I own, they are easy shadows to use for my everyday makeup and the size of the palette which is smaller then my iPhone is so easy to travel with. They stayed during my recent Makeup Palette cull! (video coming soon).
This palette is a bit of a take on the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette with some of the shades coming in as close dupes. I have previously swatched and reviewed the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette as well.
Also random addition of the Models Prefer Paw Paw ointment in Peach because I bought this on the same day and thought it looked good next to the palette, this is also an awesome product and the Peach smell is delicious.
As you can see and as the name suggests the shades here lead more rosey and warm (funny that!) then the previous Nude palette. There is a mixture of matte, shimmer formulas and a shade that is almost like a pressed pigment which is the 4th shade from the top, a stunning copper (my personal favourite and most worn tbh). My gripe with this palette is the first 4 shades, I think so many light shades is unnecessary and would have preferred (HA HA) a more mid toned brown matte shade to use as a transition or crease colour. The lighter matte shades are also a little bit chalky and really need to be blended in, I generally just use these as a base for my makeup so you don’t really see them anyway. The rest are fantastic shades, the only other one I haven’t dipped my brush into is the darkest shade which is almost a black with small purple shimmers, it’s just not my thing.
Onto some swatches… Sorry these did have names but I lost the little insert thing.
In comparison with the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette, some of the shades are pretty close to duping the palette but the formula just isn’t as good. However, if you are on a budget or just want a couple of shades from the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette and they are duped in this palette, maybe check this one out.
Here I have swatched Buzz, Trick, Nooner & Blackheart from the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette and the corresponding shades from the Models Prefer Nude Rose Palette (the MP shades are the first of the shades swatched).
As mentioned previously the Models Prefer Nude Rose Palette retails for $12.99AUD and can be purchased from the mothership…aka Priceline 🙂
