I’m a natural palette lover so when this palette got revealed I immediately felt attracted to it. It took me a while to finally buy the palette but here it is! Let’s get into the details.
First of all, I have to say that I really respect Youtube influencers who are starting a beauty brand. I really trust them, because I know they’ll be critical when it comes to making high-quality products. Moreover, I have been watching Laura Lee a couple of months and I like her so it’s nice to support someone who you really like and who you think really deserve your money.
As I said, I’m a natural palette lover and so this palette fits me perfectly. The packaging is super pretty! It kinda has KKW Beauty vibes with the pale pink but the front has an ombre effect which I think is really nice. It’s super chic, simple but looks luxurious at the same time. It has a rose gold logo and details on it and I’m obsessed with rose gold lately. The palette feels a little bit heavy, which doesn’t make it feel cheap. Only by the looks of the packaging, I would say this is worth your money. I feel like Laura really put a lot of effort into the packaging, so my expectations are really high for the actual eyeshadow.
Here’s the inside! What a beauty! I already thought this palette was super pretty (otherwise I wouldn’t have bought it duh haha) but it’s even more pretty in real life. Pictures don’t do this palette justice. It definitely has all sort of shades and formulas to create a perfect look. You can go supernatural for a work day or go super glam for a night out. This palette has it all and that’s why I love it so much, the variety of looks you can make with this palette is insane!
I love that the palette has the names of the shades inside the palette and not on the back. The huge mirror is a plus as well. The palette is pretty long when I compare this to my other palettes but it’s not too long. It doesn’t bother me. The palette has 14 shades and each pan contains 0.06oz/1.65g. That’s a normal amount of product, it even has a little bit more amount of product than a Colourpop pressed powder or Urban Decay Naked palette. And the Naked palette is even more expensive.
This is the first row of the palette swatched. Left picture is with natural light and right with a flashlight. Top to bottom: Stark, Undressed, Topless, Streaking, Uncover, Strip, and Bare.
How pretty?! The colors are super pigmented and easy to swatch. None of them was hard to swatch, chunky or whatsoever. Uncover is definitely my favorite color of this row, I love it!
The second row of the palette. Left picture is with natural light and right is with a flashlight. Top to bottom: Exposed, Au Naturale, Reveal, Jaybird, Butt Naked, Buff and Nakey Nakey.
I was literally shocked when I swatched this row. I thought the first row was already extremely pretty but this row is perfect as well. I was a little bit scared of the two more chunky looking glitter shades Au Naturale and Jaybird but they both swatched super buttery and didn’t feel chunky at all. I don’t like extreme glittery eyeshadow so I was like ‘I’m not sure about these two colors.’ But I really really like them! They’re super pigmented and glittery but not ugly glittery as you know what I mean. Not chunky glitters but just a good shiny eye is what you get with these colors, nice! As you can see, all the other shades are pigmented as well and not hard to swatch.

As I said before, this palette has 14 shades and each pan contains 0.06oz/1.65g. The price for the palette is $45 on Laura’s site http://www.lauraleelosangeles.com and €42,50 on www.beautybay.com for my European followers. It’s possible to order from Laura’s site as well but you have to keep in mind that you might have customs charges.
Laura Lee Los Angeles Nudie Patootie palette is vegan and cruelty-free. Not only just her palette is vegan and cruelty-free, all her other products are as well. It’s stated and labeled on her website.
I’m super happy with this palette! I think I can make so much super gorgeous eye looks with it, thanks to the variety of colors and formulas. It has enough mattes shades, metallics and glittery shades which is perfect. Laura did a great job with this palette and I’m excited for all the products she has coming in the future. This palette is amazing! I really recommend this palette.
Hope to see you next time loves,
