This week I tried out a new brand. Yes! Going wild here 😉 During my last visit to France, I instantly fell in love with this pink eyeshadow palette. Find out more about my new Nocibé eyeshadow palette below.
Nocibé is a French beauty retailer that offers a wide assortment of beauty products and perfumes. Aside from the big brands, they also sell their own private brand that is way cheaper. I often pass the store on my way to the KIKO shop but until recently, never went inside. This week I want to show you this gorgeous pink quad palette that I spotted on my recent visit.
Quartuor ombre éclat lumière
The quad eyeshadow palettes with “light shine” come in 9 different shades. The quartet of four colors are housed in a sturdy compact with a press button on the side. The modern but elegant look is completed with a window on top. On the back of the box there is even a small guide showing you how to apply a day and night look. This palette is just completely foolproof 🙂
I picked out the Be Smockey Pink quad eyeshadow palette. The colors are just stunning! It was such fun to swatch them and try out the looks on the box. The texture of the eyeshadow is soft and silky to the touch. All shades have a very nice color payoff, easily build up and come with a sheen finish. They really are a dream to use.
Swatching showed that the lightest colors look very similar and there is quite a gap to the darkest color in the series. The palette definitely fits its description as a “light shine” with its sheen finish but went a little overboard color-wise, in my opinion. I would have loved an additional color between the pale pink and the darkest one. This may also be why I felt the looks on the box were not really to my taste. I found the day look to be too light for my eyes and the night look to be lacking some elegance for an evening out. Blending the colors horizontally though gave a nice result.
The Nocobé quad eyeshadow palette contains four great eyeshadows that lighten up your eyes. With the high pigmentation and gorgeous finish these powders are a dream to use. The colors are absolutely stunning but overall a bit too light for me.
