What a great versatile neutral shadow for an extremely budget friendly price! Nutty is very close to a lot of higher priced shadows in terms of colour – UD’s YDK, Nars Ashes to Ashes, Chanel Safari. It may not be an exact dupe for any of these but it’s close enough that for the price difference, I’m hard-pressed to quibble. As with all the WnW shadows, my experience is that these don’t travel very well and can crumble. I don’t know if it’s the packaging itself (which isn’t very sturdy) or the formula of the shadows or both but for home use, you can’t beat these and Nutty is just a great basic and versatile shadow to have.
For years, I used this in place of MAC’s Brule shadow, which costs 5 or 6 times more than this little beauty. Even after I got “the original”, I still continue to use this much lower priced version simply because it is a really great eyeshadow! The only “down-sides” are the packaging, which is cheap (but for the price, I don’t really care all that much) and the fact that these shadows really don’t travel well – none of the WnW ones seem to, in my experience – and so can crumble and make a huge mess. But other than that, Brulee is a fabulous product and great value.
