Real Techniques Modern Natural Palette Review & Tutorial

Our favorite affordable brush makers (and makeup power duo from the UK) are finally here with their first color cosmetics! Pixiwoo sisters Sam and Nick Chapman have launched two limited-edition makeup kits that include an assortment of makeup items. I purchased the Modern Natural Kit ($25) - a collection of natural, neutral eye, face, and lip products. Among the products and shades included are:

4 Eye Shadows:

  • Quick Sand - light champagne
  • Gold Metal - medium shimmery pewter
  • Caramel Mocha - medium matte brown
  • Nightshade - medium shimmery mauve brown
  • Dark Chocolate - deep chocolate cream liner
2 Cheek Products:
  • Coral Sunset - soft powder blush
  • Champagne - champagne cream highlight
2 Lip Glosses:
  • Copperhead - clear gold-laced gloss
  • Nectar - clear gel gloss with light peach tint

As I would have hoped, each of the products performed well to create a flatter, natural look. The shadows don't offer a wide shade variety, but the neutral-lover looking for the ultimate face kit shouldn't mind!

Things to be mindful of when purchasing is how light the blush is. It took some layering to build it up to the opacity to see in the video. I'm not sure it would show up on medium to deep skin tones.
