Blogmas - Lacura Barely There Eyeshadow Palette

19 December 2014
I spotted this palette 2 weeks ago in Aldi, it almost made it to the checkout but it was a tight week so I put it back, today (yesterday when you are reading this) I was in Aldi again and saw a lone palette sitting amongst some other beauty items and I decided it was meant to be.

I'm going to give a super quick review of the palette and give you some comparison shots of the Lacura Barely There Eyeshadow Palette and the Urban Decay Naked Palette because we clearly have a set of twins in the room.

The Lacura Barely There Eyeshadow Palette comes with 12 shadows (2 matte, 9 shimmers and 1 matte with glitter, each pan containing 1g of product) and a double ended applicator (brush and sponge) and features magnetic closure, there is no mirror, instead it has a clear window so you can view the shadows while the palette is closed, this was actually very smart because I can imagine a lot of palettes would have been opened in store had people not been able to actually see the shadows.

#1 - Cool, pale pink shimmer
#2 - Neutral, pink champagne shimmer
#3 - Neutral, matte beige that has pigment but I can't really see on my skin because I'm too tanned.
#4 - Warm, bronz-y brown shimmer, super pretty
#5 - Neutral, matte medium brown
#6 - Warm, gold shimmer

#7 - Warm, dark bronze shimmer
#8 - Neutral, chocolate brown shimmer
#9 - Warm, darkened pinkish brown shimmer
#10 - Cool, light greyish plum shimmer
#11 - Matte black with what looks like a light blue shimmer
#12 - Cool, medium grey that reflects purple and blue, awesome colour

The Comparison

As you can see we don't really have a true dupe palette here, but some are very close and I even prefer some of the Lacura shades over the UD ones colour wise, but if I'm dead honest I have to say that while this palette looks quite good for the price when it's swatched it doesn't translate so well on the eyes, I recommend a really good primer and using the brushes in the palette because they help to transfer the colour a little better. If UD is a little out of your price range but you like pretty things like this it can't hurt to give it a go, just work with it until you find a way to get nice colour pay off.

The Lacura Barely There Eyeshadow Palette retails for $9.99 at Aldi stores and if you want one run, don't walk because they are selling fast!

I'm not kidding if you want one go now.
Right now.
