Deborah Secrets of the SMOKEY EYE caught my eye as soon as I saw PR photos. I bought quite a few as Christmas gifts as I like quality of both Nude palettes … not so much that of other 2.

Nude Beige was the one that I bought for myself. Name of the palette tells you all – this is collection of 6 eyeshadows in natural tones. If I only rate this palette color wise, I would say this is one of the prettiest nude drugstore palettes. They did fantastic job choosing which beige and brown shades to put in Nude Beige palette. They started with off-white eyeshadow, with fine shimmer. Personally I prefer shimmer for highlighting over matte, even though I’m hardcore matte eyeshadow fan. Shimmer or satin simply tends to look more natural and effective highlighter than matte finish.

Second shade is pretty similar to my skin tone so I tend to use it as all over shade when I’m doing one of those “put makeup on in 5 minutes” situations. Finish? I think they went for the matte one, but it’s more satin-matte.

Third one belongs into the family of taupe shades. Perfect color for quick eye contouring aka crease color.  As I prefer matte colors in my crease, this eyeshadow is pretty much perfect for my needs. Finish is very similar to the one in eyeshadow no. 2.

With no.4 pigmentation kicks up. First three are pigmented just not as much as last three. No. 4 is warmer brown eyeshadow with same matte finish as the no. 2 and 3. It blend nicely and this one is also my crease color + for outside corner.

Next one is cool browns shade with tiny shimmer. There is nothing wrong with this eyeshadow, but it doesn’t fit into my routine so I don’t use it much. Pretty much all the time I go for this eyeshadow I end up with smoky eye for daytime … and then I add dark lipstick and my “natural” look goes bye-bye. :D

Darkest eyeshadow in Nude Beige palette is dark brown one with slightly shimmer finish to it. I use 2 layers to get pretty and long lasting brown color. It performs well in crease too as the shimmer is not really visible.

Formula is dusty, but that is something I see lots of times with drugstore eyeshadows. I tapp of brush before application and don’t end up with panda eyes … quick and effective method. If eyeshdows were “cremier”, then this palette would be perfect for even wider range of users. I tested transfer with Zoeva 234 and MAC 239 brushes, but as those 2 are great at its job as is, I tried it with Essence brushes as well – no issue there. This palette received few bonus points because colors did not start to fade that fast … primer or bare eyelid.

Packaging is plastic and looks durable. You get very useful mirror and no crappy applicator which makes palette smaller and easier to store and transport. Weight 5g, cost 12 EUR, shelf-life 24 months after opening, make in Italy.

Swatches are made over base and in 2-3 layers.

  1. My favorite product is the MASCARA EXTRAORDINARY 5 IN 1 because it really lengthens my lashes & adds volume & it is a long-lasting formula!

  2. Do zdaj sem preizkusila samo en njihov mini lakec, ki je čudovite rdeče barve, vendar je na mojih nohtih grozno neobstojen. Tako da še nisem odkrila svojega najljubšega izdelka od te znamke. :)

  3. Moj najljubši Deborah izdelek je ena mini paletka s tremi senčili v violičnih odtenkih, ki mi je pa pred kratkim ravno zmanjkala, zato bi bila ta paletka odličen nadomestek. :)

  4. Trenutno imam v uporabi samo njihove lake za nohte, čudovit je mini v odtenku 37 Burlesque Red :party: Leta nazaj sem uporabljala tudi njihovo rdečilo HI-TECH BLUSH, mi je bilo zelo všeč :yes:

  5. Od Deborah imam 2 maskari, črn svinčnik za oči in lakce :) Najbolj všeč so mi pa kar maskare, saj opravijo odlično delo na mojih trepalnicah :yes:

  6. Hi! I had in the past one lipstick from Deborah, Rossetto Atomic Red and I loved it.It was very creamy and pigmented.

  7. Do Deborah izdelkov se kar nisem uspela priti, bo treba najprej se malo raziskati kaj bi mi sploh ustrezalo, ampak barve tele paletke izgledajo res krasno~

  8. Nimam veliko Deborah izdelkov v lasti, so mi pa laki gel effect in mascara 24 ore absolute volume neki najboljsega :) Laki so zelo prekrivni in obstojni, copic je sicer maxy,a meni noro ustreza. Maskaro sem dobila za darilo in bila prepricana,da me bo razocarala,je pa ena boljsih. Trepalnicam da lep volumen.Imam pa na WL te paletke, noro lusne so :wub:

  9. Meni so všeč Shine Tech laki, pa tudi nasploh imam največ njihovih lakov. Pred leti sem na veliko nakupovala njihove obarvane vazeline- ne vem več kako so se klicali, v beli embalaži z zelenim napisom. Top so bili.

  10. Moj najljubši Deborah izdelek je bil dolgo časa matt puder, ker mi je dobro prekril nepravilnosti in dolgo obstal na svojem mestu.

  11. Moj naljubši Deborah izdelek: hm, za enkrat sem poskusila le BB kremo in šminke, aha pa lake za nohte, vse mi je super, mogoče sem bila še najbolj navdušena nad šminkami.. ker pa sem frik na paletke, bi bila zelo vesela, če bi imela možnost preizkusit tudi to..

  12. i LOVE their nail polishes. They last really long time, colors are beautiful, and the are launching new ones all the time! Haven’t tried any eye shadows yet, only nail polishes, and lipsticks (they are gorgeous, too).

  13. Moj najljubši izdelek je hkrati najljubše rdečilo vseh časov – Deborah baked blush v odtenku 24 Rame. Tega res obožujem in ne vem zakaj ne kupim še kaj od njih. Mami sem kupila šminko, ki je prav tako super. Odlična ocena, sem čakala swatche te nude palete. Rose mi je všeč zaradi vijoličnih odtenkov:).

  14. Najraje imam njihov Ultraliner, ker se sama najbolje znajdem z applikatorjem-spužvico in mi je njihov všeč ravno zaradi tega. Poleg tega pa je tudi izredno dobro pigmentiran, lepo črn, kar hočem od svojega eyelinerja in cenovno dostopen.

  15. Moj najljubši Deborah izdelek je njihova šminka, ki pa je žal ne prodajajo več :/ Že par let je bila to moja najljubša vsakodnevna šminka, ker je perfektno pasala k tonu moje kože. Zdaj jo žal zmanjkuje in priznam, da pojma nimam kako bom preživela brez nje :(

  16. Všeč so mi Deborah senčke in mini lakci za nohte, ki so suuuuper obstojni in res lepih barv :) <3

  17. Obožujem njihove Shine Tech lake za nohte, na mojih nohtih so super obstojni, čopič ravno prave širine, barve so pa zanimive in sveže. Same pohvale :)

  18. Končno ena dobra ocena :D sem misla da ne bom nikoli dočakala :p drugače pa mam od njih najrajši nadlak in podlak ker res fajn podaljšata trajanje manikure :)

  19. Najbolj so mi všeč Deborah Pret a porter mini laki, ker so tako majhni, priročni ter imajo dober izbor odtenkov, ki jih pri nekaterih znamkah ne najdem :)

  20. Najljubši Deborah izdelek so vsekakor Pret a porter laki za nohte. Lepi odtenki, dober nanos in obstojnost. Najbolj sta mi všeč odtenka Love at first sight in Cashmere creme.

  21. Super giveaway, hvala! :rose:
    Men so super njihovi Pret a porter laki, sploh ploščat raven čopič, ki je potsal kar redkost v invaziji ovalno prirezanih čopičev :silly:

  22. Meni so pa všeč njihove maskare in rdečila za ustnice v rdeči barvi.Bi pa z veseljem se preizkusila paleto senčil.

  23. Najljubši izdelek je Milano red lacquer, tekoče šminke v odtenku 6, 7 in 2, najljubši pa je temno vijoličen odtenek :) Super giveaway in čestitam za 6 let :)

  24. Moj najljubši izdelek so Milano lacquers, imam tri, v temno vijoličastem odtenku, rdečem in nude, številka 6,7 in 2, tekoče šminke, z bolj jelly strukturo ampak super barve :) Sploh številka 6 :) Super giveaway in čestitke za 6 let! :)

  25. Jaz pa moram priznati, da nimam nobenega Deborah izdelka zato bi z veseljem probala tole paletko. :rose:

  26. Moj najljubši Deborah izdelek je bil dolgo časa matt puder, ker mi je dobro prekril nepravilnosti in dolgo obstal na svojem mestu. Včeraj pa sem si prvič privoščila dva njihova lakca in sem zelo zadovoljna <3
    Mi pa ravno ta roza nude paletka ne da miru in je že na wish listi :)

  27. Jaz sem jo pa ravno danes poslikala, tako da bo tudi kmalu na blogu. Mogoče me je roza nude na slikah bolj pritegnila, ampak v živo mi je pa beige nude ukradla srce :) Sem jo pa kupila predvsem za potovanja, da ne vlečem s seboj večjih paletk, ker ta zadosti mojim potrebam po enostavnem dnevnem in večernem ličenju. Sem pa do sedaj od Deborah edino 2 lakca sprobala in nič drugega.
