I wonder… At what point in history did the word “cool” turn into a way to say that you liked something?
“Keanu Reeves asked you to marry him? That’s cool.”
“Wait, you adopted a fifth cat? SO COOL!”
“How cool is that Ilia eyeshadow palette?”
Cue segue into today’s review! 😂
The Ilia Cool Nudes palette is pretty cool — both in terms of color temp and how cool it is to use — and it’s all about easygoing eyes.
It comes with six moderately pigmented powder shadows. You get:
- A matte nude beige
- A shimmering bronze-taupe
- A matte lavender gray
- A matte cool brown
- A matte burgundy
- A shimmery dark golden violet
Ilia wrapped everything up in a very sleek but simple, modern-looking white case with a mirror.
First, these shadows blend like they mean it! No harsh lines here. I do a few swishes with a tapered blending brush, and I’m good to go.
Next, there’s barely any fallout from them, and the wear time is quite good.
