Nabla cutie palettes

The new Nabla Cutie Palettes

Nabla is a brand that has really grown on me, and by the looks of it, the rest of the world as well. They are becoming more and more popular outside of Italy. They have been picked up by Ulta in the US, which is such a huge deal. I think I own every palette they ever came out with, and when they announced the new palettes in the Nabla Cutie Palette lineup, I didn’t even have to see them to know I wanted them.

A bit of introduction if you’re not familiar with the brand and their products. They started with single eyeshadows (which are amazing). Then they started releasing 12/15 pan palettes. Then, last summer they introduced a new format: the Nabla Cutie Palette. They are “smaller” 6 pan palettes. The pan size is actually bigger than any standard palette. These palettes are collectables and each one as a specific theme. Which is why each has the series number on the cover along with two icons representing the theme.

Now they’re expanding the line with 3 new palettes.


The Platinum Cutie Palette is inspired by metals, the platinum palettes is a cool tones palette with 4 gorgeous shimmers and 2 mattes:

The Wild Berry Cutie Palette is obviously inspired by berries, includes 2 shimmers 3 mattes and one Latex Matte, which is a very unique formula that I absolutely adore, introduced in the first Cutie palette. It’s a multidimensional matte that has some sheen to it and doesn’t look completely flat, unlike the other matte shades.

IncenseLatex matte | medium apricot beige
VenomSuper matte | intense berry
Bucolic BabyMetal foil | medium peach with strawberry reflects
Alchemy 2.0Metal foil | flamingo and teal duochrome
BlackberrySuper matte | intense blackberry
Botanic JuiceSuper matte | raspberry

Every shade in these palettes is fantastic. The mattes are always super pigmented while really easy to blend and the shimmers, especially the foiled formulas are super reflective and all glide like butter. This is not a surprise for me as the brand never disappoints with eyeshadows.
