When choosing a pretty autumnal nail polish last month, I came across this new palette from Catrice. Choc-Let It Be consists of 6 chocolate nude eyeshadows in one palette. Retailing at around €5.50, it’s very affordable so I couldn’t resist picking it up!
I have to admit that eyeshadow isn’t something I buy very often — simply because it’s not something I wear that often. While I rarely leave the house without applying some eyeliner and I love mascara for when I want to feel a little more put-together; eyeshadow only makes an appearance on special occasions. I typically go for a smoky look so I was curious to see how I’d feel about these more neutral colours.
There are six shades within the palette, ranging from the palest white to a deeper cocoa colour. There’s a nice mix of matte and shimmer to choose from and they’re all very buildable. One thing I don’t like about this palette is that it can be a little messy as you can create quite a lot of “dust” during application but really that’s not a deal-breaker for me. These shades are a good option if you want a more natural look for your eyes, whether for daytime or to complement a bolder lip in the evening. They last reasonably well too. All in all, I think this is a very decent buy — especially considering its price, you really can’t go wrong!
