Senna Cosmetics Haute Nudes Palette in ‘Sultry’ – Review, swatches & a look!

Sunday, March 31, 2013 Sara Hassan , 23 Comments

Senna added two gorgeous makeup palettes to its collection last year - Mystic and Sultry. I got to try Sultry which is a warm hued neutral palette. There are now so many neutral palettes available on the market but this one, I can honestly say, offers something unique.

Haute Nudes Multi Makeup Palette
Gorgeous powder colors in perfect harmony are set in a sleek mirrored compact. Six shimmer and velvet matte eye colors light-up, shade and smoke the eyes. One soft sheer matte blush and one luminous highlighter make skin look radiant. Three pro mini brushes let you create any look you like at any time. Each palette contains one Get the Look Booklet that illustrates how to achieve two looks with one palette.

My thoughts
I have to say, all the colors in this palette work so well together! It has a great neutral color scheme that can be used to create looks for any occasion. Out of the six eyeshadows, five of them have a matte finish which is what makes it so special in my eyes. It's hard to find so many great mattes in one palette. A lot of people don’t usually gravitate towards matte shades for the reason that they’re chalky, lack pigmentation or get patchy but not these. The texture of these eyeshadows is phenomenal – soft, silky and really very smooth! They may not be so intensely pigmented on first swipe but they’re buildable with virtually no fallout and blend very easily.

Speaking of individual shades, the upper row begins with New Moon which is an ivory color suitable for highlight and the inner corner to make your eyes widen and pop. Right next is Sand; a soft beige which is a very wearable color. Then there is Tiger Lily which is a medium reddish brown. The bottom row has some sultry browns that I’m totally in love with. Palomino is a perfect brown crease color and it’s also my favorite. Tigress has a fine shimmer to jazz up your look a bit. Lastly, Havana is a deep brown; perfect to intensify your look. I have worn these everywhere from work to dinner and they stay put through and through with a good eye primer underneath.

The palette also has two cheek shades. Sunkissed, the highlighter, is a lovely peachy champagne with lots of shimmer. Even though it has the similar buttery soft texture, I’m not a fan of it since the shimmer seems to lack the grip which is why it spreads all over the face; the formula could’ve been better here. The blush, on the other hand, is a good one. Passion is well pigmented and has matte finish. It appears as a soft coral on me and it complements the eyeshadows really well. Though I don’t find it very universal as it may not appear  on deeper skin tones. There are also three mini brushes for on-the-go application but I don't find them very useful especially the blush brush. About the packaging I’d say it’s nice, simple and travel-friendly; I like it.

Overall, I’m impressed with this palette. I find myself reaching to this palette way more often for it’s perfect for day time looks. Of course, you can amp things up for a night out too! I wouldn’t say this palette has shades you’ve never seen before but the quality for matte eyeshadows is truly commendable. I'd  suggest giving it a go if your stash lacks good quality matte neutral eyeshadows; you won't be disappointed.

You might like it if...
  • You expect good pigmentation and soft texture
  • You're looking for matte eyeshadow palette
  • You expect easy blending
  • You  find it travel-friendly
You might not like it if...
  • The highlighter/blush don't show up on deeper skin tones
  • You find it pricey

    8. I literally have too many neutrals in my makeup collection but I still feel that I don't have some quality matte shades. I'm glad to see that there are FIVE matte shades, I definitely need this one, but maybe not soon. By the way beautiful eye makeup you did, I'm already a fan. :) xx

      1. Hey Saria, I'm not sure because good matte eyeshadows are rare to find in drugstore. You could however checkout the Luscious Divine Naturals Palette xx
