Review || Catrice Cosmetics Absolute Nude Eyeshadow Palette

Hello everyone, hope you're all well! Hold your horses Ladies and Gents but I think that I've finally got a blogging schedule! I'm planning on posting on a Wednesday, Friday and Sunday with the occasional post here and there. With lots of exams coming up I don't want to neglect my blog so I need to be organised and maybe plan in advance for once. Anyway, today's post is going to be a little review of the Catrice Absolute Nude Eyeshadow Palette* which I won in Molly's giveaway recently.
Unfortunately the eyeshadows don't have names so I've numbered them from 1 through to 6. I'd also like to point out that the accompanying brush is much better than I would expect but I still prefer Real Techniques! 
Shade 1 works wonders as a highly pigmented, shimmery-but-not-sparkly, inner corner highlight or blended over the inner third of the lid. For an all over base colour, shade 2 works well, although I think it would have been better matte. Shade 3 is a deep warmed tone brown in the pan although doesn't transfer as well onto the skin. 
An alternative all over the lid colour would be shade 4 which works well with shade 5 in the outer third.  For real eyeball eyelid definition shade 6 transfers really well and is easy to blend.
Overall for only €5 this really is a bargain palette and something I would recommend buying if you can get your hands on one!
Thanks Molly!
