Nabla is not a super well known brand but you hear from them here and there sometimes. So I like to check them out once in a while to see if they have any products I’m interested in. And then I found it: The Nabla Soul Blooming eyeshadow palette. I directly fell in love and ordered it. I really love the color story. It’s something different, something I didn’t have in my collection yet.

  • The Nabla Soul Blooming Palette retails for 35.90 € (~ $ 39.54) (nablacosmetics.com) or 35,95 € (beautybay.com)

FORMULA:

Overall the eyeshadows from the palette are very nice.
The mattes are nicely pigmented and blend well. They are very soft. The only thing is that the darkest shade “Carvaggio” is not as dark as it looks and swatches. It kind of blends away a little probably because it’s such a soft shadow that it won’t stick to the eyelid that well.

The shimmery shades (or “fluid metal”) also are nicely pigmented. But the shade “Anemone” is a little less pigmented. You need to built it up quite a bit which I don’t mind that much.
I don’t think the description “fluid metal” is that fitting for every shimmery shade though. I don’t think they are that metallic.

The first shade “Honey Drip” is the crystal shade. It feels kind of like a cream eyeshadow and is very unique. Very pretty but I think the best way to apply is with your finger. Applied with a brush it might not show up that much.

So overall the formula is good. Not my favorite though. I wish the shimmers were more intense. And the mattes are so soft that they can kind of blend away very fast. But that is just personal preference.

PROS:

  • Beautiful color story
  • Good pigmentation
  • Blend well

CONS:

  • The darkest shade “Carvaggio” is lighter than it looks (but that is just personal preferece)
  • Some shimmers (mainly “Anemone”) need to built up more

FINAL THOUGHTS:

I really enjoy this palette!
Such an amazing color story. Nowadays it’s really hard to find a palette that is more different. But this one is really unique. It contains some nice colors and also some neutrals.

Like I said the formula is not my favorite but I definietly don’t regret buying this palette. I really like it and get a lot use out of it.

So I think if you like the look of the palette you’ll probably like it, too. So I would recommend it.
