Nude 'Tude Palette Review and Swatches

Outside Packaging.

For quite some time now, I've been lemming over this palette. With a 50% off sale, I couldn't help but pick it up. 

The shadows are housed in a cardboard frame with magnetic closure. The packaging is similar to the Naked 1 and Lorac Pro Palette. But the material of outside is a smooth paper consistency. Anyway, I won't bore with super details of the packaging. Onto the pictures:

a satin titanium white
Stubborn: a satin, shimmer light pink
Selfish: a cool metallic light brown

Snobby: a warm satin/shimmery cream
Stand-offish: a metallic warm pink
Sultry: a matte warm, almost neutral brown

Sophisticated: a cool medium brown with micro golden glitter
Sexy: a matte plum
Serious: a matte black (yay!)

Seductive: a metallic bronze
Silly: a dark cool brown with macro glitter. (to me it's macro if I can pick out the individual bits of glitter)
Sleek: a matte cool coffee brown.

Swatches of Nude 'Tude Palette
Packaging: 4.5/5: The packaging is really adorable with the 50's theme going on. Because it's housed in a cardboard box, however, it isn't perfect and can easily be broken when stepped on. (Don't ask. But one of my palettes needed some serious bandaging.) Size-wise, it's a similar size to the Lorac Pro Palette, so it's not that hard to transport.
Pigment: 4/5: Overall most of the shades are very pigmented and are very easy to swatch. Some colors however, such as Stubborn, applies somewhat sheer, although is pretty buildable. The rest of the colors however, are fully pigmented.
Quality: 5/5: The shadows are very buttery soft and easy to blend. Because of the versatility of colors, they make for easy day to night looks.
Overall: I'm very pleased with this palette. It compliments my other palettes (Lorac PRO and Naked1) really well.
