Happy Thursday to you! I hope you’ve had a good week so far and are gearing up for a great weekend! Today I am reviewing the IT Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Palette that I got for my birthday a few weeks ago, let me just tell you it is stunning. Keep reading to see all the deets on this palette.
IT Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Palette Review:
What is it?
It is a palette with 14 luxe matte shadows and 1 transforming pearl shadow. The idea behind it is you can take the transforming pearl shade and put it on top of any of the matte shades and it creates a totally different color and sheen. It is something like I’ve never seen before. With this technology this palette can have 56 colors because you can wear them matte, pearl, wet, or dry…how cool is that?
Packaging and Price:
The packaging is a pink velvety plush material that I can definitely see getting dirty, luckily mine has stayed fairly clean for now. It has a nice sized mirror on the inside for on the go touch ups, and each shadow has the name printed on the package, which I love. It is $42, which I think is a great price for a palette. You can buy this on Amazon, Ulta, or QVC
I’m in love with this palette, I seriously have not been able to put it down since I got it. The colors are so wearable and blend like a dream. If you are a beginner or just don’t have time to blend your eye shadows forever these are probably the easiest eye shadows to blend. Every color is super creamy and pigmented. Even though these are matte shades they don’t come across like a dry chalky matte like some do, these are just perfect. You can create so many different looks using this palette, from barely there neutral makeup to dark sultry and sexy. This is also a great palette for mature eyes or hooded eyes because shimmer shadows aren’t the most flattering for those types of eyes. But if you aren’t mature or have hooded eyes this palette is still amazing for you too because of the transforming pearl shade, it literally transforms the shadow, as you can see in the last picture…same black shadow but the right one has the transforming pearl on top. It’s the best of both worlds!
If you are looking for an eye shadow palette to put on your Christmas list and you want a neutrals palette I highly suggest this one, it’s amazing!!!
Does this look like something you would love?
i have this one and want to get the latest one for christmas. i’m a palette junkie!
Haha me too girl!! :)
This looks so beautiful, I’ve been really wanting to try this palette. I’m loving the swatch of Violet. Have you tried using them wet?
You should definitely get it, it’s a great price and it’s beautiful! Honestly I hadn’t tried them wet until I saw this comment, so this morning I used Violet wet and it’s more intense which is really nice. I will say it doesn’t blend as well when they are wet, but it’s still worth it to play around with!
It is indeed a lovely palette! I like when the put blue tones, but everyone seems to be wary of blue. I think it can be gorgeous, no need to be scared!
Yea you are right people are a little more hesitant to wear blue eye shadows. I think blue is beautiful on the eyes if it is done the right way! :)
Oh shoots, I just bought the newer IT palette, but after seeing this review I kinda wish I had gotten this one instead. I will have to add this to my Christmas wishlist for sure!
Say, anytime you want to link up your beauty posts, just like this eyeshadow palette review, I would love to have you over at the Beauty Frenzy Friday link party! (every linked up post gets pinned and has the chance to be featured the following week!)
Aww I haven’t really seen a lot of the new one, but I’m sure it’s super pretty too! Definitely add this one to your Christmas wishlist because it’s amazing!!
And thank you so much for telling me about your link party, I have been looking for Beauty Link Parties since I started blogging and have only found a couple. I totally just linked up with you! :)

Glad to have you! I too have been on the hunt for a good beauty related link party and haven’t been able to find one. I love them for finding new DIY and food blogs, so I was really hoping to find a few good beauty linky parties. After not having any luck finding one, I just decided to create my own! Hope to see you partying each week :)
Well I am glad you started one because I didn’t really want to yet, haha! I will definitely be partying each week, I signed up to be reminded by email!! :)
Thanks again for telling me!
Ohhhhh these colors are so pretty! You should show us some of them on your eyes because your eyes are GORGEOUS! Would you say it’s better than the Naked palettes?
They are so pretty right?!? Aww thank you, I will definitely do more of that when I get my real camera for Christmas haha! I think it is different from the Naked palettes, more unique first of all. I love matte shades for blending and transitioning colors and the Naked palettes don’t have many mattes. :)

I want one!! I am going to end up spending so much money on beauty products because of your blog. These colors are great, definitely something I would wear every day.
Haha and what is wrong with that? Lord knows I spend tons of money on beauty products all year long haha! These are definitely really great wear everyday colors!!
Daisy @ Simplicity Relished
Palettes are great! I always feel inspired to try different color combos. To be honest though, I think the max number of colors per palette for me is 4… when there are more, I tend to get overwhelmed, haha!
Haha I know what you are saying, sometimes with my Naked palettes I get in a rut and only use the colors I know how to work with, then other times I try to switch it up!
Katie @ Hot Tea and the Empty Seat
So many amazing colors! And that’s not even too bad of a price! Love!!! Def adding this to my Christmas list :)
I know the price is really good for what you get, and how many colors you can actually create with it. I hope you get it for Christmas! :)
