NABLA Cosmetics has recently launched the Poison Garden Palette, consisting of 15 ultra-pigmented eyeshadow shades that include some unique colors to create a variety of make-up looks, from sweet and natural to smokey and mysterious. For today’s post, I’m going to review, swatch and show you a look using the NABLA Poison Garden Palette.
The NABLA Poison Garden Palette comes with a cardboard sleeve, both having artwork of shadowy matte, dark roses embossed in front combined with a dark enchanted colored, metallic background. The palette itself is made of cardboard, has a magnetic closure and feels very sturdy. I really think NABLA hits it very well with their eyeshadow packaging. The palette feels sturdy and looks beautiful.
Opening the palette reveals a mirror and fifteen shades in individual, square pans that all have the same size, containing 13.5 grams of product in total. The names of the shades are all displayed below the pans. The eyeshadows inside the palette have three different textures, which are Super Matte, Fluid Metal and Crystal.
For the NABLA Poison Garden Palette, the brand chose to include shades that could be neutral and classic in combination with warm shades and intense pops of colors. I really wish that NABLA did something more to fit the palettes theme. Poison Garden sounds really awesome and unfortunately, the shades as well as their names don’t have really anything to do with that theme like a green shade.
Here are swatches of the NABLA Poison Garden Palette. The shades of the first row are described as follows:
Zodiac (Super Matte) – Deep Midnight Blue
Fabric (Fluid Metal) – Light Sandy Champagne
Adoration (Crystal) – Wet effect top coat with Cobalt, Indigo and Magenta reflects
Berry Bite (Super Matte) – Bright Berry
Adagio (Super Matte) – Dark Brown
The shades of the second row are described as follows:
Zen (Super Matte) – Medium-Light Rosy Nude
Craving (Fluid Metal) – Duochrome Amethyst with Fuchsia and Peach reflects
Honey (Super Matte) – Bright Honey
Subliminal (Crystal) – Vibrant Rose-Copper duochrome with Red and Gold reflects
Archetype (Fluid Metal) – Burnt Bronze duochrome with Rose and Gold reflects
The shades of the third row are described as follows:
Rosita (Fluid Metal) – Metallic Dusty Rose
Majorelle (Super Matte) – Majorelle Blue
Narrative (Super Matte) – Warm Beige
Opera (Super Matte) – Wine-red
Canvas (Super Matte) – Light Custard
For this look, I used the shades Canvas (all-over base), Zen (transition shade), Berry Bite (inner half of the lids), Opera (outer corner of the lids and crease), Rosita (inner half of the lids and inner corner highlight).
I also used the NABLA Serial Liner to create a winged eyeliner and the Shine Theory Lip Gloss in Dresscode (full-face look below) from the Holiday Collection. Check out the full collection in this post.
I feel like the look turned out beautifully! Each shade I used was very pigmented and worked well together. The bright berry shade Berry Bite really makes it look unique and vibrant in combination with Rosita.
However, because of the strong pigmentation and unique shades, I do think that this palette is not suitable for beginners. A little goes a long way with this palette and needs to be carefully build up because it will become very difficult for a lot of shades to properly blend if you apply too much.
I would recommend the NABLA Poison Garden Palette if you’re looking for a versatile eyeshadow palette. I really like the formula of the NABLA eyeshadows. I think they’re of high-quality and are very pigmented.
The NABLA Poison Garden Palette is available for €39,90 Euro at NablaCosmetics.com and at Boozyshop.nl.
