Naked Cosmetics Twilight Collection: Swatches, Photos

By  |  13 Comments

One of my new favorite collections from Naked Cosmetics is their Twilight Collection. I didn’t really play with this collection until I went to IMATS Vancouver and saw it in action! One of the girls working for the Naked Cosmetics booth had the pink in this collection on, and I hadn’t realized before that these all are really gorgeous duochromes, which are my favorite types of shadows (meaning they have a different color sparkle than their base color!).

This collection is very color-appropriate for the name, as all the colors are cool-toned and kind of mystical :)

I’m obsessed with the colors in this set, they’re so gorgeous! The cloudy blue 2nd to the top left is so unique, as is the pink next to it with the peach sparkle, and I LOVE that purpley-black/blue! Lots of really different colors here.
The best part about Naked Cosmetics colors is using them wet, especially the lighter colors, as they just instantly come to life! These were all swatched over an ELF eyeshadow base, but if you were to use the colors dry I would recommend a shadow-enhancer underneath them, such as a cream color base or a white eyeliner pencil, just to help pack on the color. I have noticed that these are more sparkly when used dry, and more shimmery when used wet (I really hope that makes sense, haha!)
These are available for $60 as a set or $15 each from Naked Cosmetics. Just a tip- if you are in the industry, apply for their Pro discount (link to it is on the main page of their website) as it greatly reduces the price for the collections! :)

    I’m surprised there isn’t an amber and an onyx color in the stack. I do like the colors though.

    These are nice, yes, but TKB Trading has forever tarnished my respect for loose eyeshadow sellers that sell pots for more than $7. The thought of paying $15 for a pot of loose eyeshadow just makes me shake my head in disbelief :/

    Hi Leesha! These are sooo pretty! How do you manage to photograph sparkles so well? I find it kind of difficult. Is it all about the lighting or the camera?
