Neutral/nude palettes have been around for a while now, and there is a version or two by every brand.  Despite that, I am always happy to try out the next new "Nude" palette, especially when it's  by a brand that's easy on the pocket like this Magnif'Eyes Nude Edition eyeshadow palette by Rimmel.  The Magnif'Eyes eyeshadow palettes are available in 5 color themes - Nude (pictured above), Smoke (as the name suggest, a darker smokier collection), Spice (warm neutrals – I really wanted this but couldn't find it at my local Target), Blush (rose/plum-toned neutrals), and Color (this one has some brighter shades – teal, copper, gold, along with some neutrals and darks).  I got to try out the Nude edition (thanks to PR folks), and for my medium-dark skin tone, this works great as a soft-neutral eyeshadow palette.  Scroll on for swatches and photos.

Rimmel Magnif'Eyes eyeshadow palettes feature 12 shades, housed in a sleek palette with a dual-ended sponge-brush applicator included with the palette.  I haven't used the applicator (the sponge end at least isn't something I can use more than once), but I do find the space useful for carrying a small brush of my own.  The Nude edition palette features a mix of shimmers and mattes with shades ranging from soft creams and browns to darker browns and grays.  There is no black in this palette, and the smokey effect in this palette comes from darker browns and grays.

On my medium-dark skin tone, this colors in this palette show up as soft-neutral tones.  There are some lovely shimmery copper and browns in here, but the taupes and grays are my favorites.  The eyeshadows feel soft and are reasonably pigmented.  I do think they perform best over a primer and/or when layered with an eyeliner.  The swatches below are on dry skin – no primer, no moisturizer, and I haven't wet the eyeshadows.

Rimmel's Nude edition Magnif'Eyes eyeshadow palette is a great pick if you are looking for easy-to-wear neutrals, eyeshadows that would be great for a daytime, soft smokey eye, and also a great pick if you want an inexpensive neutral eyeshadow palette.  Paired with a darker eyeliner, this palette can also be used for darker makeup looks.  The eyeshadows do need a primer and show up best when layered, but for the price, I find these pretty awesome.  I am a bit biased, though, because these are the sort of colors that I reach for most often.  My go-to makeup look would be one or two of these shadows used all over the lid and a darker eyeliner smudged along the lashline, and this palette is perfect for a simple eye makeup look like that.

As is perhaps the case with every other neutral-nude eyeshadow palette out there, I have seen reviews mentioning this as similar to the Urban Decay Naked palette.  I don't think this is a close enough dupe, and the eyeshadows in the pricier UD version are more pigmented (in my opinion), but I don't own any of those palettes, and really for the price, the Rimmel palettes are a great substitute :D
