Laura Lee Eyeshadow | Cats Pyjamas and Nudie Patootie

Laura Lee Los Angeles…Eyeshadow Palettes

If you have been living under a rock most of you all know how much I love eyeshadow palettes, Im such an eyeshadow palette junkie. There definitely my favourite part of makeup. I lost track of how many I have but can’t help adding more to my collection…

A lot of influencers have been releasing their own makeup lines and one I had been looking forward to the most was Laura Lee Los Angeles. Laura Lee is a beauty influencer on youtube with over 4 million subscribers. I have watched Laura for so many years and love her personality. When Laura announced she was coming out with her own cosmetics line I freaked out. I have always loved Laura’s makeup looks and wanted to get my hands on some of her products. Laura released the Cats Pyjamas palette in October 2017 and most recently the Nudie Patootie palette.  I waited until both were released on Beauty Bay here in the UK. I wanted to purchase them together so I could put them both in this post…

Laura Lee Cats Pyjamas Palette

When the Cats Pyjamas Palette came out there was a lot of mixed reviews on it. From the packaging, its name, to the shadows and it’s price. I watched Laura’s video on this palette and actually liked the shades. It was released during the autumn/fall season and the colours fit quite perfectly for that time of year.  I was instantly drawn to the 4 mauve/pinky toned shadows. And of course the gold/bronze shadows too…

Now I must admit I believe the packaging is a little crazy as the outer box has a pink floral design and the packaging on the palette is a silver sparkle. It’s a little too much in my opinion. I think Laura tried to put too much together and then a lot of people said the name didn’t match the palette design. Now if you watch Laura you will know she loves cats and this is why she named her first palette the way she did.  There is also a little cat down one side of the palette, I found that very unique. Besides the design the palette is stunning…

Cats Pyjamas has 10 shades, 1 semi-matte, 5 matte and 4 shimmers. The palette costs $40 dollars on her US site and £35 on Beauty Bay here in the UK.  When I seen Cats Pyjamas in person I was shocked as I had heard a lot of mixed opinions and to me the shadows looked gorgeous. Both the top and bottom rows are gorgeous. I have added swatches of both rows below…

From T-B the shade names are Okie Dokie, Scatter Brain, Bomb Diggity, Cray Cray and Redonkulus

You can’t go wrong with these shades. These are your neutral, brown and warm tones shadows. I absolutely love these shades and find them very wearable. You can also use the mattes as transition shades too. I adore the shade Redonkulus, how stunning is that colour! Redonkulus is described as a copper shimmer shadow…

From T-B the shade names are Quirky, Kooky, In One Ear, Out The Other and Odd Ball

I was a little disappointed with the matte black in this palette. But then again I don’t always wear matte black shadows. When I swatched Odd Ball I found it very patchy and this swatch was after 2-3 attempts. Besides that the other 4 shades on this row are stunning. I have been loving Quirky and In One Ear…

Do you need this palette? Is it the bee all and end all? Is it a MUST HAVE?? In my opinion no but if you love shades like this then pick it up. I picked this up without even thinking do I need another palette. I have an obsession, an expensive one at that.  Overall I love the shades and I’ve adored the shimmers in this palette since I got it….

Laura Lee Nudie Patootie Palette

Nudie Patootie is Laura’s second release in her cosmetics line. When Laura announced this palette I was more excited for this one than Cats Pyjamas. I absolutely love nude shadows and the name is fantastic. I think the outer packaging on this one is so much better. It’s a lot more sleek but stunning at the same time. To me it looks like a nude/blush pink packaging. I think the design is more appealing on the eye too. I love how she still includes her logo on the front but she also has her emblem on the side of the palette too. Laura talked about this in her video reveal for the palette. When you open the palette is it much larger than Cats Pyjamas. It has the name ‘Nudie Patootie’ in capital letters embossed on the front. In the bottom right hand corner is Laura’s logo for her brand in gold reflect text…

Inside the palette you get a really good quality mirror and 14 shadows. The shadows include 8 matte, 4 shimmer and 2 foil shadows.  Nudie Patootie costs $45 on her US site and £38 on Beauty Bay here in the UK. I did not hesitate with this palette at all. Laura announced in her video that this was also being released here so I waited to pick it up here to avoid hefty shipping fees. I am absolutely in love with this palette, it’s me in a 14 pan product…lol. I have included swatches of both rows below…

From T-B the shade names are Stark, Undressed, Topless, Streaking, Uncover, Strip and Bare

I have not got a bad thing to say about any of the shadows in this row. They swatched beautifully and I am living for the shades Uncover and Strip. In my opinion this is the most nudist peach row I’ve seen in any palette that’s for sure.  I also loved the shadow Undressed it looks stunning on the lid..

From T-B the shade names are Exposed, Au Naturale, Reveal, Jaybird, Butt Naked, Buff and Nakey Nakey

This row is the so beautiful I was so impressed with these shadows. Laura included 2 foil shadows and they are absolutely out of this world. Trust me if you like foil shadows you will love these.  I have had no problems with any of the shadows in the palette, they blend beautifully, the shimmers are incredible and the foils look stunning on the eyes..

Is Nudie Patootie a MUST HAVE? YES in my opinion. If you were to choose Cats Pyjamas or this one I would go with this one. I feel like this one is going to be a favourite with a lot of people. I have seen a lot of great reviews on youtube for Nudie Patootie. I already love it and it’s become of my favourite releases so far this year…
