  1. “I don’t need this, I already have enough neutral palettes in my collection,” said no one ever.

  2. I love all the colours in this palette. I like how they have stuck to natural colours.

    I think I will have to keep an eye out for this one in the UK :)

  3. This looks so beautiful. I’m tempted to get but I certainly don’t need another palette! AHHH. Christine, what would you recommend – this or the Laura Mercier Artist Palette?

  4. Esmeralda L

    That looks stunning

  5. Looks like UD’s Naked palette has some competition!

    • I don’t own either Naked palettes (I know crazy, right?) but this is just stunning. I’ll have to see what Naked 3 looks like but if I don’t like it then this will be mine!

    First we have UD naked,then naked 2,then thebalm ,lorac propalette
    laura mercier..same style…why does everyone do a neutral palette in this style!

  7. Karla

    OMG for a second i thought it was the naked 3 lol

  8. Jen

    Wow, this looks stunning! Another neutral palette to add to my wishlist :)

  9. Savannah

    This color palette is perfect for this season and it’s for a good cause? Sign me up!

  10. I can’t wait to see the swatches and review for this one!

  11. This is a palette that I am really lusting after.. but I have SO MANY neutral shadows and palettes already.

  12. Veronica

    The palette actually looks to lean cooler for once, so I’ll definitely have to give this one a look. Can’t have too many neutrals in my book. 😉

  13. Clarins doesn’t generally do really flashy makeup but what they do, they do well. I have 2 shadow palettes from them which I love and their other “makeup products” have almost all been winners for me (I just wish fewer of them were “LE”). While I’m pretty chock-a-block with neutral palettes and eye shadows generally (and will probably cave on Naked3 because it’s more cool/plum-toned), I may pass on this just because it is so much like Naked 1 and 2, Stila In the Light, Bare Minerals Power Neutrals etc. etc. etc. I also love the information about the sourcing of the materials in this – sustainable wood in the brush, recycled aluminum for the palette – way to GO, Clarins!

    I’m way more intrigued by this than the Naked 3!! Clarins hasn’t let me down yet!

  15. Isela

    I think this is the most stunning neutral palette ever. I don’t own any of the Naked palettes but this one is coming home with me.

  16. Ashley Sarah

    I’m interested to see what the shades look like swatched and the quality. Clarin’s doesn’t usually get a lot of hype, especially when it comes to make-up. But they have some nice things.

    I am a bit weary of palettes, so many colors too sparkley, too too, however this one GETS me! Thank you,now going to hunt where to buy!!!!!!!!!!!
