Side by Side

NABLA Cosmetics Side by Side Eyeshadow Palette ($45.00 for 0.39 oz.) is a new(ish) 16-pan eyeshadow palette that included a mix of mattes and shimmers, though it had more mattes than shimmers. The first three rows were warmer-toned, while the last row was a bit cooler in tone. The quality was decent–some of the mattes were a little powdery and needed to be built up in coverage but the palette was easy to work with overall.

Bonjour

Bonjour is a medium peach with warm, more orange undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a silky-smooth consistency that was a little powdery in the pan but blendable on bare skin. It stayed on well for seven and a half hours before fading visibly.

Formula Overview

$8.00/0.09 oz. - $88.89 Per Ounce

The brand has a few different powder eyeshadow formulations, and because they don't just differ in finish but in price, they're listed as individual formulas on Temptalia, but for ease, I wanted to keep the same overview available so it's easy to get a big picture overview of their powder eyeshadows generally!

Super Matte Eyeshadows are "highly pigmented, completely opaque" with a "full, velvety" finish. The Super Mattes have a more finely-milled, velvety, and more substantial texture compared to the brand's Soft Matte eyeshadows, and I also found that they were much more pigmented than the Soft Mattes, too. There was more fallout during application if I wasn't careful due to the Super Matte shades being so pigmented, though. If one prefers building up coverage, the Soft Mattes would be more suitable. The eyeshadows in this finish tended to wear seven to eight hours on me.

Top Coat Wet & Dry Eyeshadows are supposed to give a "wet effect" and can be used wet or dry but are suggested to be used by "dabbing them on with your fingers" or "trying it wet." I found that these varied--some were really soft, blendable, and extremely pigmented with more fleck-like sparkle and others were drier and firmer with a thinner texture that was stiffer to work with. Most of them did apply best with fingertips or with a dampened brush over a dry brush. This finish is more interesting than the others, but I'd pay attention to the specific shades as there was some inconsistency. The wear time ranged from six to eight hours and slight to moderate fallout.

Satin Eyeshadows are supposed to have a "gentle sheen" with "the finest pearls" that will have "excellent adhesion" and be "long-lasting." They can also be applied wet or dry, and some shades did apply more smoothly or had better pigmentation when applied with a dampened brush, but the majority were easy to work with dry. The texture was smooth, firm but not too dense, and most shades blended out easily as the formula wasn't stiff to work with. Most shades lasted seven to eight hours.

Soft Matte Eyeshadows are supposed to give a "soft and delicate" effect while blending "easily." While the brand mentions "soft and delicate," the swatches they provided of the shades in this finish were showing opaque coverage in one layer, so the expectation would be for true, full color coverage, but a lot of the shades in the finish seemed more muted (which could be interpreted as "soft and delciate"). My experience was that the pigmentation ranged from medium to opaque but most shades were buildable, and I felt like buildable, matte eyeshadows are much needed and quite versatile--there's a huge difference in a poorly pigmented eyeshadow and one that can be pigmented, just requiring two layers--the latter gives one a lot of control over how it can appear in a look. The shades in this finish seemed to fade a little faster on me with six to seven hour wear on average.

Pearl Eyeshadows are supposed to "apply evenly, blend well" with "excellent skin adhesion" and "long-lasting" wear with high pigmentation. These are your m re typical shimmery, powdery eyeshadow formula with light creaminess, moderately dense textures, and are usually quite easy to blend out. Most of the shades had semi-opaque to opaque pigmentation that lasted between seven and eight hours on me. Some shades were very metallic and others were a soft frost.

Ray of Light

Ray of Light is a light-medium gold with strong, warm undertones and a smooth, metallic sheen.

It had rich color coverage that wore nicely for eight hours before fading a bit.

Halftime

Halftime is a light brown with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had semi-opaque, buildable color payoff that adhered well to bare skin but sheered out a bit when blended out due to the more powdery consistency. This shade showed signs of fading after seven and a half hours of wear.

Magic Moment

Magic Moment is a light-medium, reddish-copper with moderate, warm undertones and faint pink sparkle throughout. The pigmentation was mostly opaque, while the texture was lightly emollient but felt a bit more firmly pressed into the pan so it needed a heavier hand to pick up product evenly on a brush. It stayed on well for seven and a half hours before fading visibly.

Body and Soul

Body and Soul had more of a transparent base with flecks of copper and pink sparkle throughout. It wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably. It was listed as having a transparent base and as a top coat, so the sheerness was as expected. The texture was lightly emollient, thin, and had decent adhesion on its own but I’d recommend using an adhesive spray to minimize fallout over time.

Paradiso

Paradiso is a rich, honey gold with strong, warm undertones and a shiny, metallic finish. The color payoff was opaque in a single layer, which adhered well to my lid. The consistency was creamy, smooth, and dense without being too thick. It lasted nicely for eight hours before fading a bit.

Clan is a darker taupe-brown with neutral, almost olive-leaning undertones and a matte finish. The texture was moderately powdery, which made it more prone to fallout and sheering out during application. It had semi-opaque coverage that was buildable when layered over a primer only. This shade wore well for seven and a half hours before showing signs of fading.

Soft Matte Eyeshadows are supposed to give a "soft and delicate" effect while blending "easily." While the brand mentions "soft and delicate," the swatches they provided of the shades in this finish were showing opaque coverage in one layer, so the expectation would be for true, full color coverage, but a lot of the shades in the finish seemed more muted (which could be interpreted as "soft and delciate"). My experience was that the pigmentation ranged from medium to opaque but most shades were buildable, and I felt like buildable, matte eyeshadows are much needed and quite versatile--there's a huge difference in a poorly pigmented eyeshadow and one that can be pigmented, just requiring two layers--the latter gives one a lot of control over how it can appear in a look. The shades in this finish seemed to fade a little faster on me with six to seven hour wear on average.

Pearl Eyeshadows are supposed to "apply evenly, blend well" with "excellent skin adhesion" and "long-lasting" wear with high pigmentation.

Most of the shades had semi-opaque to opaque pigmentation that lasted between seven and eight hours on me. Some shades were very metallic and others were a soft frost.

Better Society

Better Society is a medium, coppery-brown with moderate, warm undertones and a sparkling finish. The consistency felt more loosely-pressed together with some dryness, so I’d recommend applying it with a fingertip or a dampened brush with the latter helping the most to apply the color more evenly and with less fallout. It had mostly opaque coverage but sheered out a bit when applied dry. It stayed on nicely for seven and a half hours before fading visibly but had fallout over time.

Cedar Wood

Tempera

Tempera is a medium-dark brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was somewhat powdery, so there was light fallout as I applied and blended out the eyeshadow, though it was blendable and easy to work with otherwise. It had semi-opaque, buildable coverage that was better applied over a primer. It lasted well for seven and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

$8.00/0.09 oz. - $88.89 Per Ounce

The brand has a few different powder eyeshadow formulations, and because they don't just differ in finish but in price, they're listed as individual formulas on Temptalia, but for ease, I wanted to keep the same overview available so it's easy to get a big picture overview of their powder eyeshadows generally!

Super Matte Eyeshadows are "highly pigmented, completely opaque" with a "full, velvety" finish. The Super Mattes have a more finely-milled, velvety, and more substantial texture compared to the brand's Soft Matte eyeshadows, and I also found that they were much more pigmented than the Soft Mattes, too. There was more fallout during application if I wasn't careful due to the Super Matte shades being so pigmented, though. If one prefers building up coverage, the Soft Mattes would be more suitable. The eyeshadows in this finish tended to wear seven to eight hours on me.

Top Coat Wet & Dry Eyeshadows are supposed to give a "wet effect" and can be used wet or dry but are suggested to be used by "dabbing them on with your fingers" or "trying it wet." I found that these varied--some were really soft, blendable, and extremely pigmented with more fleck-like sparkle and others were drier and firmer with a thinner texture that was stiffer to work with. Most of them did apply best with fingertips or with a dampened brush over a dry brush. This finish is more interesting than the others, but I'd pay attention to the specific shades as there was some inconsistency. The wear time ranged from six to eight hours and slight to moderate fallout.

Satin Eyeshadows are supposed to have a "gentle sheen" with "the finest pearls" that will have "excellent adhesion" and be "long-lasting." They can also be applied wet or dry, and some shades did apply more smoothly or had better pigmentation when applied with a dampened brush, but the majority were easy to work with dry. The texture was smooth, firm but not too dense, and most shades blended out easily as the formula wasn't stiff to work with. Most shades lasted seven to eight hours.

Love Ritual

Love Ritual is a light taupe with subtle, warm undertones and a cooler, silvery sheen that gave it a more metallic finish.

It wore nicely for eight hours before fading a bit.

Why do I love this palette so much? I mean, I’m sure I don’t need it, right? Just going off of all my MAC Pro Pan singles, ABH Sultry dupe palette by CCosmetics, alone, I’m fairly certain I can dupe most of these shades. But not all.

What a huge palette for you to review Christine! This would have taken ages for you to do.
Now to the palette: I am not really a fan of this one – the shades are commonplace, lots of them live in other palettes and probably better done.
Better Society would have been lovely if it were a pressed shadow, not so loosely packed in.
The shimmers were pretty – I liked Love Ritual the best.
For those who don’t own many neutral palettes and prefer a lot of mattes – this offering would suit you.

Thanks for your review Christine! Wondering how you feel this compares to Biba as I know you have rated that palette highly amongst your most used!

I bought this palette upon release, and I must say, Love Ritual and Cubism along with Better Society (over sticky primer) are the standouts for me, the ones that make me want to use it again. Most of the other shadows help complete the look. The one that disappoints me is Body and Soul. I don’t have too many palettes so this is a nice all-rounder that I can see myself using regularly.

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
