Illamasqua Neutral Palette Review & Swatches

Recently i was in London and knew i had to pop to the Illamasqua Store on Beak Street. I wanted to check out the new collection from the Human Fundamentalism and especially play around with the NEW Neutral Palette.

As soon as i saw it, i had to have it and the makeup artist who was helping me was so helpful and informative! I loved the service i received there and the artist really took her time explaining the products to me.

As you all know i love heavy eye makeup and this palette was perfect for me. It is so versatile that you can use the colours on an everyday basis for work or university but then if you're going out for the evening, you can wear it much more heavier.

The palette has four colours, three of them are MATTE and one which is a SHIMMER.

Stealth - This is a very light flesh coloured matte eyeshadow and reminds me a lot of Bobbi Brown Bone. This colour i would only use as a base or under my brow for s subtle highlight.

Wolf - My favourite shade out of the whole palette! This is an olive with a mixture of an antique gold and is a beautiful shimmery shade. This applies so smoothly to the skin. 

Vintage - A chocolate matt brown shade. I would wear this in my crease for a day time look but also the perfect colour to fill in my brows. Feels very satiny on the skin when applied.

Obsidian - The blackest of blackest shade! Ideal for creating super smokey eyes but also using as a liner for people who just want to define their top lash line instead of using liquid/gel liners.

From Top-Bottom: Stealth, Wolf, Vintage, Obsidian

Overall i love this palette and have the feeling i will be reaching for it a lot! The size is so practical to keep in my handbag or for traveling. It has the basic colours any girl would need.

The palette is available HERE and retails at £30.

Have you purchased anything from the Human Fundamentalism range? If so what did you get?


  1. Do you think its worth buying? Especially considering the Naked palettes are £35/£36? x

  2. Thats a hard question! To be honest i think it is good, just because there is a matte brown and a black, which is ideal for creating a smokey look but also using it to fill in brows. The other bonus is that it's so compact, i don't mind having it in my makeup bag xx

  3. Those shades are beautiful! I'd take this palette over UD Naked any time. Can't stand Naked.
