The NEW L'Oreal La Palette Nude Eyeshadow Palettes Have (Almost!) Landed in the US

Remember back in October when I posted a pic of the new La Palette Nude eyeshadow palettes that L'Oreal was releasing in Canada and the UK? And remember how I said I really hoped that these were also coming to the US?

Well guess what?

(retail: $15.84 each at Walmart)

Many thanks to reader @mmullins35 on Instagram for this one! @mmullins35 spotted the new L'Oreal La Palette Nude display at her local Walmart this week (empty but with a "Coming Soon!" sign) and kindly shared some pics.

Keep reading for a look at BOTH (yes, there are two) palettes in this range...

NEW L'Oreal La Palette Nude 1 and La Palette Nude 2

There are two palettes in this range:

La Palette Nude 1 - "Light to Medium Tones"; contains Ivory, Beige and warm browns
La Palette Nude 2 - "Medium to Deep Tones"; contains Taupe, Mauve and cool plums

There is also a double-ended brush in each palette (brush on one end, sponge-tip applicator on the other).

Now I know what you're probably saying, because I'm saying it too: $15.84 seems pretty steep for a drugstore eyeshadow palette, and this is the WALMART price. I would expect this to be closer to $20 when it hits the drugstores.

The good news? Since you read this blog, you know you'll never have to pay full-price as long as you're patient--you know I'll hook up with ways to save on this! L'Oreal goes on sale at the drugstores constantly, and there are always drugstore rewards and coupons that you can use on top of the sales. It may take some strategizing, but we can do it!


From what I can tell online, the UK and Canada have one palette in this line (not two like in the US), and it is called Nude Rosé (you can see it on the L'Oreal UK website HERE and you check out a review with swatches HERE). It doesn't appear that the UK's Nude Rosé is a shade-for-shade match for OUR Nude 2 palette, but lighting and different cameras can play tricks on photos, so you never know. Our Nude 2 could be the same as the UK's Nude Rosé...we'll have to see.

Have you spotted this display (full or empty!) in your area yet? Thoughts?

Thanks so much, @mmullins35, for the great sighting and pics. I really appreciate it!


  1. Well dammit. But dammit in a good way! LOL

  2. I want this. I didn't get the Maybelline nudes because I don't trust Maybelline with eyeshadows in general, but I do trust loreal.

    1. I'm curious how these will compare to the Maybelline palettes since L'Oréal owns Maybelline. I really like some of the shades in the Maybelline Nude Palette I reviewed a while back. Super pigmented and easy to blend. :) Hope these will be similar!

  3. I went to walmart the other day and behind the receipt it had $5 off 20 any L'Oréal products good till march!

    1. Nice!! That will be excellent to use with this! :)

    2. Where did you find the coupon I'm sorry I'm confused....Thanks in advance.

    3. @Iowa The coupon is the back part of the actual receipt ~

  4. i'm going to need one of each, please!

  6. I saw this display today at my Walmart! I wonder how soon it will be released.

  7. Well, shoot there goes my money!! LOL. I'm definitely going to have to try that Nude 2 palette. (I don't care how pale I am,lol!) Regardless, it's super exciting!!!

  8. Oh my, my , my the palette with the Rose colors (Nude 2) in it is calling my name! I haven't been to my Walmarts in awhile to see if they have out up the display for them, but I am sure hoping they have and that they get them in soon.

  9. I still need to buy the Maybelline Nude palette and now I need both of these new L'OREAL nude palettes as well.

  10. I have to have these. Even if it means fighting the crowds and subsequent anxiety attack that goes along with a friendly trip through my Walmart. I desperately need a relatively inexpensive/ high quality nude palette or two. I bought the NYX Nude On Nude after Goss recommended it and I hate it. I still can't understand why Wayne steered me wrong but hopefully these two gems will make up for that. I may need a twelve step program post acquiring them. I can't be the only Walmart shopper that always ends up in the checkout lane where they conveniently sell hard liquor can I? ;-)

    As always Miss G and your awesome readers/ helpers, thanks for the heads up on this one.

  11. I'm very curious to see how the darker version is going to turn out. It sounds like it's going to be very pretty!

  12. It's been awhile since this post. Anyone found this? Reviews? TIA.

  13. Well worth the almost $ 16.00 at Walmart! Beautiful palette and you get a ton of shadow! Makes me wish I never bought Maybelline's version for $ 9.98, not worth it at all!

  14. Don't bother buying this palette. It's colors are pretty!! But the pigment is TOTALLY lacking. I'm returning mine!!

    1. I totally disagree, the pigmentation is amazing for drugstore. These last for 12+ hours on me. I got one today( for a gift) for less than 8.00 after coupon and Target coupon.
