When I first heard of Pretty Vulgar cosmetics I was very intrigued by the brand. I love the packing of there products it just makes me want to try and buy it. When I usually decide to pick a new product I always go for either lipstick or a palette. It always comes down to those two choices and I know I should branch out but that’s what my Boxycharm is for, to give me things I wouldn’t normally buy.
Anyway, I’m getting off topic, so when I was looking at what to buy, the palettes were just calling my name. Each palette is inspired by a different bird. I was debating between the Pretty Birdie and the Nightingale palette. The Nightingale palette won because I love a cool tone eyeshadow looks. Now let’s just dive into the Pretty Vulgar Nightingale Eyeshadow Palette.
The Pretty Vulgar Nightingale Eyeshadow Palette has 12 shades with colours chosen to create a deep, sultry look. It is formulated for long-wear and highly-saturated, blendable matte, shimmer, and pearl smoky-hued eyeshadows are perfect for a night out.
The price for this palette is C$43.00 which is good. The palette includes 12 shades so that would be about C$3.50 per eyeshadow. To me, that is a good price I love anything that would equal to under 5 dollars per pan. Majority of palettes start around C$40.00 so I think the price is reasonable, no complaints from me.
The packaging I think is cute. The shadows are in a birdcage which is cute and a bird on the front of the palette.
The pigment is just okay, some are good and some need a little help. I find I get good pigment with the shadows except for the top row and as you can see from my swatches you can barely even see them. For some reason those 3 shadows I have a little more trouble. I find I have to keep picking up more and more eyeshadow to get the pigment I need and want. Now is this a huge problem, no but it is something to keep in mind.
This palette needs more work for blending then some others. You would just have to spend a few extra time blending. The shade Swoop I find is the one I have the most trouble with but just give it a little extra love and it will blend out for you.

This palette doesn’t have too much fallout just very little I find. I also wouldn’t rule out a palette just because of fallout. As long as the shades blend and still has some good pigment I am happy. I dont mind doing my face makeup after my eye makeup. Which I usually do unless it is a very simple quick everyday look.
Also talking about everyday looks, I think this palette is described for doing smokey eye looks which you can do but you can do a simple day looks with it as well. You can see in this post a couple eye looks that I have done but you can definitely scale it back or add a lot more drama.
