NABLA Cosmetics Platinum Cutie Palette Review & Swatches
NABLA Cosmetics Platinum Cutie Palette is a new six-pan palette that featured two shimmery shades, two glittery shades, and two matte shades. All six shades were pigmented, blendable, and longer-wearing, though the glitter shades had slight to light fallout over time, so they would be better used with an adhesive base/spray to help them adhere more reliably. The two shimmers were exceptionally lovely to work with and seemed to “melt” when applied for a very seamless finish.
NABLA Cosmetics Tenebra Super Matte Eyeshadow
Tenebra is a blackened taupe with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had good color coverage that needed to be built up for full coverage. The texture was soft, velvety, and finely-milled with light powderiness in the pan but blended out well along the edges over bare skin. The eyeshadow stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.
Gem System is a medium-dark pewter with cool undertones and a glittering, sparkling sheen. It had a very wet-like look when applied that was highly reflective while also twinkling. It had finer glitter particles in it from what I could tell, but there was light fallout during application (definitely not bad and impressive for as glittery as it was), regardless of whether I used it with a fingertip or dry brush. The consistency was smooth to the touch, lightly creamy with moderate slip. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, which wore nicely for eight and a half hours with light fallout over time.
Rich Darling is a medium-dark, plummy taupe with subtle, warm undertones and a metallic finish. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which applied well to bare skin with a smooth, even lay down of product. The texture was smooth to the touch, lightly creamy and denser but not stiff or difficult to pick up with a brush. The color showed signs of light creasing after nine hours of wear.
Priceless is a light, golden bronze with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The texture was incredibly smooth and cream-like, dense without being too firm, and I was impressed by how well it picked up with a brush despite seeming to have a denser, creamier feel to it. It had rich color payoff that adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out nicely without fallout. It lasted well for nine hours before creasing slightly.
Luxuriance is a bright, light-medium silver with strong, cool undertones and a glittering, metallic finish. It appeared darker and lighter depending on how much light was reflecting off of the surface but often looked like a lighter, brighter silver in person. The texture felt smooth to the touch with light creaminess but wasn’t too dense or too thick.
It worked well with a dry brush as well as fingertips, though fingertip application minimized fallout potential a little more than a brush, which had light fallout. It had nearly opaque color coverage in a single layer that adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out well along the edges. It wore well for nine hours before creasing faintly, though there was slight fallout over time.
NABLA Cosmetics Aristocracy Super Matte Eyeshadow
Aristocracy is a muted, medium brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was somewhat powdery, though it wasn’t particularly prone to fallout, and it maintained its near-opaque coverage in a single layer when blended out. You’ll want to add a bit more product on top if full coverage is desired. The eyeshadow applied evenly and blended out with ease. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading noticeably.
