Nordstrom Natural Eye Palette: Review + Swatches!

While doing some holiday shopping at Nordstrom, I stumbled across one of their holiday eyeshadow palettes, the Natural Eye Palette.  I'm a sucker for neutral eyeshadow palettes, and am especially excited to share this one today because of its price: $15!!

This palette features 20 eyeshadows with a mix of matte, satin, frost, and shimmer finishes.  I love that is has both warm and cool tones in it.

Row One has four large eyeshadows in basic colors: a dark brown, chestnut, shimmering nude, and matte cream.

Row Two features six warm shades.  The first two here are very similar to the first two in Row One, except they have a satin finish.  The fourth shade over is beautiful, it's a deep green brown.

Row Three features six cool colors, and this is probably my favorite row of the palette.  I especially love the fifth shade over, it's a very light silvery nude, subtle but beautiful!

In the spirit of the holidays, this palette comes in a sparkly, glittery black case.  It's really cute, but if you aren't careful you may get a loose glitter flake or two on you!

Overall, I'm thrilled with this palette.  As far as actual quality goes, I wouldn't say the product formulation is up there with shadows like Urban Decay and NARS, but they are nicely pigmented and the color selection is great.  For the $15 price tag, I think this is totally worth it.  I'm surprised these haven't sold out yet!

What is your favorite neutral eyeshadow palette?
