Nabla eyeshadows

Some of my friends and blogging gals (aka Maria J.) know that I really wanted to try ColourPop eyeshadows. However, there were some problems with ordering so I searched for another option. I stumbled upon these Nabla eyeshadows and I immediately ordered 4 of them with their own palette.

I chose all similar colors because I really wanted and needed some burgundy colors, reds and oranges. As you can see, I bought 2 mattes and 2 shimmer eyeshadows.
I'll start from the separate casing I bought. There were more options, from the safest black palette to the light blue one with gold details. However, I didn't want plain black one. I wanted something fun. And I'm so glad I got this Freedomination palette cause I honestly love it. It has this watercolor marble effect with gold details that shine under the light. Sides are nice metallic light purple color. Palette is made from nice cardboard with magnet closing which to this day hasn't opened once without me actually opening it. Also, bottom of the palette is magnetic so you can place your metal pans in there.
Nabla eyeshadows are cruelty free and vegan. They also have no silicones, parabens or mineral oils. These were made in Italy. They advise you to use them up to 12 months after opening. Also, for about $8 you get 2,5 grams of eyeshadow (I got refills). Palette was $9.50. I got everything from Pink Panda site (Balkan area only), but you can find them on their official page and order some goodies.

First color I knew I had to have is Paprika which is warm orange shade. It can work great as a transition color and also as an eyeshadow all over the lid. Next one is Farenheit which is reddish color, also warm-toned. I used this one all over the lid in this particular look I did. I topped it with Daphne No. 2 which is dark shimmery magenta color. It's not really a perfect match for Farenheit, but they work well together. Last one is Ludwig. This one is shimmery bronze color, darker than Paprika, but like an absolute perfect match. As usual, shimmers are better when applied with fingers, but for more subtle look apply them with a flat brush and they look great as well.
Soft day time look I did. Also, my first look with these eyeshadows.
Verdict? Although I only have 4 eyeshadows (and I'm planning on buying two more to fill in my palette), I can say I can do at least 10 different looks with them. Eyeshadows are super pigmented. They are easy to apply, easy to blend with very little fallout. I don't think it matter whether you're a beginner or an expert, these eyeshadows are great! I would highly recommend!

Recommend 2 more colors I should buy to complete my palette!


  1. Daphne is really pretty! I've heard great things about this brand but I haven't had the chance to try it yet, their new palette looks amazing x

    1. I haven't tried anything else, but these are absolutely amazing! Let me know if you buy anything from them, I'm interested in other stuff :D

  2. Lovely tones looks really good with your eye colour. Maybe try something of more purple tones?? :)
