Review and Swatches: Nichido Naturally Beautiful Palette

Hello guys! I am back with another review and this is rather interesting. I never knew that Nichido carries palettes until I watched Chriselle Sy's One Brand (Nichido) Makeup Tutorial. She used the Bare Basics Pallete so I went ahead and looked for it. The Bare Basics Palette is for ₱138 which includes 2 blushes and 4 eyeshadows, but I got this palette which looks like the bigger sister of the Bare Basics, the Nichido Naturally Beautiful Palette.

Basically this palette consists 7 eyeshadows and 2 blushes with shimmery or pearl texture. This costs ₱188 and I got this from Landmark Trinoma.


Let's talk about packaging. I like how sleek this palette is. It has a glossy black finish but at the middle it's matte. At the back you will see the palette description with the total product weight and manufacturing date.

I love the packaging. Although it is a bit difficult to open, I like that it doesn't feel cheap and it has a mirror inside.

Now let's move on to the eyeshadows. It includes 7 eyeshadow shades. The shades are very natural and is actually more in the pink side. It also has the basic white and brown shades.

The shadows are surprisingly pigmented, especially the 2 darker shades. They don't feel chalky nor creamy.

Now on to the blushes. It comes with the 2 shades of blush, a pink and a peach one.

These are also super pigmented and quite shimmery for my liking, but the peach one can be used as a good highlight shade.

It also comes with a dual ended applicator, on one end it has the sponge applicator while the other end is a quite fluffy brush that can be used to blend out the crease color.

I think for ₱188, this palette is good buy. The shades are totally wearable for everyday and is quite pigmented that you can use it for a long time. The blushes are okay, for me at least, but can still be very useful as a highlighter or as an eyeshadow.

Have you tried this palette? What are your thoughts? Let me know if this post is helpful by posting a comment below. Thank you so much reading and I will see you in my next post!

    When I was in college my first neutral palette was from Nichido. Now that I think about it, it's very identical to the Naked palette, but they don't have it anymore. Reading this makes me want to go to Nichido and take a look at their neutral palettes lol

    I have this palette, and I use it for everyday office makeup. It's pretty good! I use the bottom blush only, and most of the lighter shades of the eyeshadow.
