GET YOUR PERFECT SECRET SANTA PRESSIE SORTED WITH NUDE BY NATURE'S GIFT SETS FEAT. SMOKEY EYES GIFT SET (LIMITED EDITION) REVIEW!


HAPPY MONDAY GUYS! 

If there's one thing that's on my mind...that would be Christmas! Featuring Nude by Nature, they have the most ideal and value gift sets ever! 

This year, I look to show you guys one of my favourite gift sets I looked to try out.

Ready? 

Featuring Smokey Eyes - Nude by Nature's Gift Set. 
 If there's one thing I'd love in a make-up gift set, that would definitely have to be a smokey eyes kit. With this amazing Smokey Eyes kit by Nude by Nature that consists of the all of the essentials needed to help you create the smokey eyes effect, now you can get your eyes sorted for this Christmas. The kit features an amazing collection of loose mineral eye shadows that's super pigmented. One great aspect of the brand is that it is Australia's number one mineral make-up brand. 

Normally priced at $53.80 for the all of the products in the Smokey Eyes kit, it's priced at an affordable $19.95 for this stunning Limited Edition 4-piece gift set by Nude by Nature. 

Included in the kit features of the following: 
  • Mineral Eyeshadow in 2g - In shade - Graphite 
  • Mineral Eyeshadow in 2g - In shade - Stone 
  • Mineral Eyeshadow in 2g - In shade - Ice 
  • Limited Edition Double Ended Eyeshadow Brush 
As for the Limited Edition Double Ended Eyeshadow Brush, this was an amazing extra item to the Smokey Eyes Kit, because you get two options on the effect you are wanting to achieve with the smokey eyes. It's always essential to have the most effective and useful brush when applying your smokey eyes on. There's a flat eyeshadow brush which allows you to place the pigment evenly onto the eye lids. Then on the other end, we have a domed shaped blending brush which allows for contouring and shaping through the crease. I love the domed shaped blending brush - especially for contouring because of how it is shaped and it just literally helps to blend product much easier to do so. 

The Mineral eyeshadows are just as pigmented as you would imagine. I love the shade in Ice and stone because they are definitely easy to wear on a daily basis. The mineral eyeshadows is so gentle that they contain the most gentle ingredients included in the list as per below: 
INGREDIENTS: Mica, Zinc Oxide, Kaolin, Isopropyl Palmitate, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Jojoba Esters, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Coco Caprylate, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Beeswax (Cera Alba), Zinc Stearate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Tocopherol, Glyceryl Caprylate, May Contain: +/- [C.I. 77891 (Titanium Dioxide) C.I. 77499 (Black Iron Oxide), C.I 77510 (Ferric Ferrocyanide), C.I. 77861 (Tin Oxide).
As you can see there's Avocado oil, Jojoba seed oil and Jojoba esters and Shea butter for its gentle and natural feel to the mineral eyeshadows itself. When I applied the Mineral eyeshadows onto my skin, it did not even feel heavy at all. Also, if you're wanting to create the full smoke eyed effect, then definitely utilise all of three colours as provided in the kit, being Ice, Stone and Graphite. 

I also noticed that the mineral eyeshadows come with a top cover where you simply shake the product out so that you don't waste any of the product as quickly. (Which is similar to a pepper or salt shaker). This makes it so much convenient and easier for me to apply on the eyeshadow without any spillage or hassles. 

Also, let's not forget the cute, chic-looking brown tin that comes with the four-piece set. You can ideally use the tin for storing away other make-up perhaps? Be inventive! At the end of the day, you get a nice, cool tin so that's always a bonus too

BEAUTY TIPS: 
How to use: With the flat eye shadow brush, apply Stone across the eye lid and blend slightly up above the crease on the outer side. With the domed blending brush, apply Graphite along the lash line and up through the crease (think of making a V shape pointing to the outside corner of the eye) and for a very intense effect continue along the bottom lash line to the inner corner. Use Ice to highlight the brow bone and in the inner corner of the eye. You can create a subtle effect by using less Graphite, or alternately use more for a very dramatic look. Finish with eye liner and mascara.

 NUDE BY NATURE, MINERAL EYESHADOW IN GRAPHITE

Featuring a loose pigment style mineral eyeshadow product that gives a nice, satin-matte finish to your final eye look. There's no hints of glitter or shimmer for this which is good - so literally anyone can rock this colour on their eyes, any time. 

The colour in Graphite, is definitely a bold look to rock and it's stunning as ever. I would use this shade to really give my eyes the ultimate smokey eyed effect. 


 NUDE BY NATURE, MINERAL EYESHADOW IN STONE

This shade is more on the light grey side which acts as the perfect base for the Graphite and Ice. When blended in with the Ice and Graphite shade, you can really instantly see the shading effect that you are wanting achieve.
