Undone Beauty Curator Eye Palette in Bare Review

59

I have added to my growing Undone Beauty eyeshadow collection with the addition of the Curator Eye Palette in Bare. I have also reviewed their Curator Eye Palettes in Soul and Soft. Spoiler but I love this palette just as much as the others I’ve tried.

⭐️Some Undone Beauty products are only available at Ulta and others are only available on the Undone Beauty website. This palette is available at both.

The Curator Eye Palette in Bare is $14.00. It contains ten shades; five mattes and five shimmers/satins. All of the shadows can be used wet or dry and the packaging is plastic with a click shut closure. With that basic info out of the way, let’s talk pros and cons!

😄Pros:

  • This is just the absolute perfect neutral palette. It’s not cool or warm toned, simply neutral. As odd as this may sound, I actually think this is the only true neutral palette I own.
  • I absolutely love this color story. Is it a little bland? Yes but it’s so flattering on the eyes and easy to create looks with.
  • This eyeshadow formula contains castor oil. That makes them not only hydrating but also very creamy and easy to blend.
  • All of the shades, matte or shimmer, create almost no fallout.

😣Cons:

  • I HATE the layout of this palette. The rectangles are big enough for fingers or brushes but you do have to be careful. I would be so much happier if they were spaced but this layout does create a more compact, travel friendly palette.
  • I did notice creasing with these shadows if I didn’t use a primer. I assume that’s due to the castor oil and more creamy formula.
  • The shimmers lean much more satin than metallic. They’re very subtle and while they do have a “glow” to them, they’re definitely not what I would consider to be shimmery. I do think they’re beautiful but I wish there was at least one really good metallic in the palette. However, since they are more on the satin side, they can very easily be used in place of a matte. So, kind of a pro and a con.

Swatches & Shade Descriptions:

These eyeshadows do not have names or shade descriptions on the website so I will describe them to the best of my ability. I’ll be going from left to right. This photo was taken with flash to show off the shine.

Eyeshadow Looks:

I created four looks using this palette. I almost always use an eyeshadow primer and set my primer with a cream or white colored shade, which this palette does not contain. I will be using the names I gave the shades above to describe which ones I used.

I really like every look I did with this palette but this one is my favorite. It was super simple but still had a little depth.

  1. I applied the Fourth Right shade on to my lid and blended it up into my crease. I also used it in my water line.
  2. I applied the Fourth Left shade in my inner corner and on my brow bone.
  3. I smudged the Fifth Left shade on my lash line.

I liked this look but this was the main one where the shimmers disappointed me. They looked much more impactful in the swatches than they did on the eyes.

  1. I blended the Third Left shade into my crease.
  2. I applied the Second Left shade on my lid.
  3. I applied the First Left shade in my inner corner and on my brow bone.

I love this look almost as much as the first one I created. The soft brown and bronze shimmers are my favorites of the whole palette. I used the L.A. Girl Shockwave Lip Liner in Gingerbread on my water line.

  1. I blended the Fifth Left shade into my crease.
  2. I applied the Third Right shade on to my lid.
  3. I applied the Fourth Right shade in my inner corner and on my brow bone.
  4. I smudged the Second Right shade on my lower lash line.

For this look, I did use a couple of shades from the Undone Beauty Curator Eye Palette in Soul. I wanted my lid and inner corner shades to be a bit more impactful and metallic than what I could get from this palette alone. I also used the L.A. Girl Shockwave Lip Liner in Chai Latte on my water line.

  1. I blended the First Right shade into my crease and applied it on the outermost part of my lid.
  2. I smudged the Second Right shade on my lower lash line.

Brushes Used:

If you are curious about any of the other products on my face, you can find these looks in my recent posts on Instagram.

Final Thoughts:

If you’re looking for a go to neutral palette, I don’t think you’d be disappointed with this one. It’s a beautiful palette and I’m glad that I own it. Does this look like a palette you’d enjoy or is it too plain? Thanks for reading and have a great day!
