Finally, I am reviewing the OFRA Cosmetics Pro Palette I purchased from The Makeup Show New York City back in May. What made me purchase the palette was the fact that it was so similar to the Urban Decay Naked palette everyone has raved over that I didn’t have, except this palette came in z-palette form, except with more colors. The OFRA Cosmetics Pro Palette has 15 eyeshadows, one of which is matte. It also has a bronzer, highlighter and a light rose blusher. Aside from the additional items, and minus the brush and mirror, this is a great, and affordable dupe for the Naked Palette.
The OFRA Cosmetics Pro Palette features nude eyeshadow shades, as well as some nice colors like fuchsia, teal and blue that will help you create a array of nude, daytime, evening and bold looks. Since 13 of the eyeshadows are shimmer (there’s one matte and one glitter), you must be a fan of shimmery eyeshadows to love this palette. Honestly, I was never a real fan of shimmer, but, surprisingly this palette has allowed me to create some gorgeous looks.
The bronzer is too light for my dark skin, so I mostly use it for blending out eyeshadow in my crease. The highlighter is gorgeous! I love the glow it gives. I honesty have only used the blush once. You’d think it would look ashy on my dark skin, however, it actually gives a nice natural-looking pop of color to my cheeks.
I’ve said the palette is a dupe for the Urban Decay Naked palette, and here’s how. The OFRA Cosmetics Pro Palette has numerous similar shades to the Urban Decay Naked Palette. If you look closely, you will see shades similar to Urban Decay’s “Virgin”, “Sin”, “Sidecar”, “Half Baked” “Smug”, “Darkhorse”, “Toasted”, and “Hustle” eyeshadows. The finish is similar, if not the same as well. The color pay-off is amazing. The colors are bold, and blend easily. These eyeshadows are well-pigmented with and without a base, and last throughout the day without a primer. Needless to say, I was impressed with this palette, which is why I used it religiously.
Another aspect of this palette that I love is it is similarity to the z-palette. This feature allows you to move around and switch out products in this palette and replace it with other items that you use most. Also, this palette is lightweight, and makes it easy for me to carry around in my purse. I totally regret not buying more than one; one for myself and another for my kit. There’s next time, right?
The only downsides, are the lack of matte and satin finishes, and a darker bronzer or blush for darker skin tones.
Would I recommend?
I would definitely recommend purchasing this palette, especially, if you love neutral, shimmery shades. It was super affordable, too! I think I paid $10-$12 for it. Aside from the additional items, and minus the brush and mirror, this is a great, and affordable dupe for the Naked Palette. I don’t care to have mirrors in my palettes anyway.
