Neve Cosmetics / Elegantissimi Eyeshadow Palette

Neve Cosmetics Neutral Palette Elegantissimi* £21.95

I'm a big fan of eyeshadow palettes especially neutral tones, so when this beautiful palette by the brand Neve Cosmetics landed on my doorstep I couldn't stop umming and awwhing over the beautiful shades. That's the great thing about neutral palettes. Whenever I go travelling I always take a neutral palette. They are so versatile you can change a day look so quickly to an evening look. Neve Cosmetics has a range of different palettes depending on your tastes, plus you could even custom your palette depending on what shades you like and want to use and travel with. Whilst this isn't a new idea it's still a very handy idea which is very practical. 

The name of this palette is Elegantissimi and I would agree, it's very elegant. The shades all work well together and are very pigmented. Some shades feel more buttery but they are all pigmented well and blend lovely on the eyes. Etoile is a beautiful champagne shade with a subtle shimmer, perfect for highlighting, this is even lovely on the cheek bones. The size of the shadows is very generous as you can probably tell from the photos. Noisette and Smoking are both one lid shades which look beautiful all over the lid and buffed into the crease. I've worn both of these shades during the day. Then just adding a touch of Espresso in the corner really intensifies the look. The shadows can also be used wet for a more deeper look, these would work well for eye liners which I am hoping to try soon. I'm on the look out for a small fine eye liner brush, so if you have any suggestions please pop them below!
This palette is also magentic so when you've used up the shadows youc an replace them, or if you wanted to try other shades you can swap them!

 Coco, Etolie, Butterfly, Bonbon, Noisette, Smoking, Peluche, Croissant, Espresso, Black Sheep

You can purchase the amazing Elegantissimi as well as the other range of amazing shades online from www.cutecosmetics.co.uk

They also have an amazing blush/bronzer palette which looks lovely! I don't own a blush palette but if I did it would be something like this, it has a lovely selection of berry, pink and coral shades as well as the added extra of bronzer for contouring and also a highlight!

What shadows have you been reaching for this Autumn?
