LORAC Nude Skinny Palette
LORAC Nude Skinny Palette ($15.00 for 0.45 oz.) is a set of seven shades of warm-toned neutrals ranging from pale beige to reddish-brown. This has now sold out online (it was still up yesterday, boo!!), so your only opportunity will be to see if you can find it in stores. I quite liked this one, so if you can find it, I think it’s well-worth considering for the wallet-friendly $15 price tag. I’ll be posting about the Navy palette tomorrow (which is also sold out online, sigh!), but a note in advance: not as impressive.
Zappos has it in stock! Thank you reader Jane for the heads up!!
Nude #2 is a brightened, medium orange-copper with warm undertones and a frosted, metallic finish. The texture is incredibly soft but almost a bit crumbly, though it is intensely pigmented. It lasted for eight hours on me with very slight fall out. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
Nude #3 is a light-medium, muted orange brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff, a soft, blendable texture, and lasted for eight hours. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
Nude #4 is a medium-dark, yellow-toned brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, while the texture was soft, it was quite powdery, which made it a harder shade to work with. This shade was slightly faded after seven and a half hours of wear. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
Nude #5 is a medium-dark copper with warm, orange undertones and a softened frost finish. It had excellent color payoff with a soft, smooth texture that was easy to work with. The color wore well for eight and a half hours before slightly creasing. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
Nude #6 is a medium-dark, golden brown with warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had nice pigmentation, and the texture was blendable and buttery, though a smidgen powdery. The color showed signs of fading after eight hours of wear. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
Nude #7 is a dark, burgundy brown with a mostly matte finish-. It had so-so color payoff, and the texture was soft but slightly powdery. This shade wore well for almost eight hours on me. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
