I was asked to write a review for this from Trendmood as I purchased their Nabla x Trendmood Box and this was included. But again, I paid for the item—just at a better value than if I were to buy it individually.
I love the color story here and yet I'm sort of stumped at how to combine the shades without looking like I'm going clubbing. That being said, these are great shades for a cool pop of blue eyeliner look. I would recommend this particular palette if A. You don't own many blue eyeshadows in your collection and B. You're specifically interested in the more dramatic shades.
Unfortunately, I've found two duds in this palette—at least in my eyes. The top middle shade, Air, is a super sheer satin light blue that I find difficult to build on my extremely fair skin. And the middle bottom shade, Alma, is just okay. It's a duochrome white base with blue reflect. In my opinion, most people own this type of shade. I own at least four of them and this is by far the least exciting one—and this includes a colourpop shade.
Additionally, the shade Quiet Storm is beautiful but I would recommend a glitter glue as you need to build it a little otherwise you get a messy looking dark base with very few glitters. But once you, it's the most gorgeous shade. The most impressive shades in terms of formula are Sapphire and Marseille, which is disappointing because I think we all own a creamy bronzey shade like Marseille. Blue Hour is a perfectly good matte that is opaque and fairly smooth so no complaints there. I prefer the Platinum palette as well as the Side by Side palette if you're looking to try Nabla for the first time. If you know their formula and you like these shades, I don't think you'll be disappointed—especially for the price.
Beware if you have allergies or skin sensitivity. First time using this brand (21 day sale purchase Cutie palette Midnight) and first ever full on "blue look" I had a welt appear on the upper inner eyelid ( transition color area). I have no known allergies. Irritation started driving to work and co worker saw the welt within two hours. Took a week to resolve. I suspect Air was the culprit but lined my lids with Sapphire so could have transferred up as I have hooded eyes.(Also used Blue Hour outer lid and quiet storm as halo) Later did a patch test on my inner arm, with no reaction. Haven't got the courage up to try on the eye again. Colors are beautiful. Not sure if blue is an issue overall, this formula, or just a weird one off but wanted to share for allergy prone folks

These colors work well together to create a look. They can all "sing" together in the band LOL. Blue is a hard one. Most palettes don't coordinate well and this one is perfect. Try it when it's on sale.

I adore this! I bought it on an impulse during the 21days sale and thought uhoh, am I really going to use blue eye shadow? But it's so so pretty, it looks amazing, I even added some nabla glitter on it and wow, one of my favorite looks I've created. Now one of my fav palettes

I am so glad I picked this beauty up during the 21 day sale. It contains matte,metallic and shimmer shadows which all perform beautifully. All are very pigmented and blend effortlessly.

Love how I can make great blue Smokey Eye looks this palette. Never underestimate what you can do with a colored theme palette.
Molly from Phoenix
Obsessed with the Nabla pallettes and this is no exception!!! I would pay $24 for the duochromes alone in this palette. They are so beautiful. The mattes are exceptional quality No regrets and you won't either.

Received this palette in a Trendmood box. I prefer cool tone palettes so this was right up my alley. Formula was easy to work with and palette was versatile for its size.

They are more beautiful than on the pictures, and have a lot of color in them, especially Quiet Storm!
I received the products from Trendmood Box.

This eyeshadow palette has some stunning shimmery blue shades, and the formulas are buttery smooth with minimal fallout.

I just can't believe how beautiful this palette is. The light blue matte seriously impressed me with its saturated color payoff. The dark blue shimmer is stunning!!! Couldn't be happier! *Received on a Trendmood Box*

The neutral shade helps to warm up the blues to make it slightly more wearable for daily looks. The lighter blue is a tad ashy on my medium warm skin tone but all other shades apply like a dream. The darker blue is so vibrant on the lids. They really scream for attention. I love the application and the wear time which has been 6 to 7 hours for me in the southern heat. I received this in my Trendmood box. But I still love it.

I've never tried anything from NABLA but have always heard great things so I jumped at the chance to purchase the latest TRENDMOOD Box that featured a NABLA takeover. This palette was included and I am in love. The formula is extremely buttery and smooth and the colors are gorgeous. My favorite is Quiet Storm. Absolutely stunning. The palette is a great size and easy to travel with. I love that a large mirror is built in (I hate when palettes don't have mirrors!) the colors are bold but include some that also allow for a more subtle look if I choose. I will be ordering more from this company. The formula is high end but the price is affordable. I'm extremely pleased.

I love this eyeshadow palette!! I didn't have any trouble with the eyeshadows. If you love blues I think this is a great option, the shadows blend smoothly and the shimmers are amazing. There was a bit of fallout with the palette, but if you do your eyes first it shouldn't be an issue!

I have about six of these palettes and ALL of them are great quality and have thoughtful color stories. I definitely recommend this one - it is the most impressive in person. I actually said WOW when i opened the package. ***Received in the Trendmood Box.

Received in Trendmood Box. Love that the entire Nabla brand is vegan & cruelty free! This palette is absolutely stunning! Pictures do not do it justice. So excited to play with these fun colors!!
GZ from Dallas
I received this in a Trendmood box, and liked it so much I bought the side by side and two more cuties palettes from Ulta. I like the Nabla formula and color payoff, they last through work and beyond.
Clau from Miami, Florida
I received this palette from the Trendmood box and I loved the colors. The blues are beautiful, the shine in the metallic shades are great, and the eyeshadows pigmentation is wonderful. Nabla does not disappoint with any of its palettes.
It's a very nice palette. It has great packaging and colors. You can come up with many different looks with this palette.
Cambry from Pendleton, Oregon
I received this palette in my TrendMood Nabla takeover box. Just like the other cutie palettes, this one doesn't disappoint. Nabla knows what they're doing when it comes to shadows. I love that you can wear so many different looks with just one of these six pan palettes. The blue shades in this one are absolutely stunning.
Gypsy from Miami
This is such a great blue palette. The colors are vibrant and blend well. I could have done without the bronze shade as I don't feel like it brought anything special to a 6 pan palette. I would have prefered another matte blue shade, but other than that, it's a great palette.

Although not wearing too much blue eyeshadow, this is an exception to the rule as the shades and the quality areexcelletn
