I’m putting the Laura Lee Nudie Patootie eyeshadow palette to the test! Is this 100% vegan and cruelty-free formula worth your coin?
Hello there, dreamers! Now. Straight up the Laura Lee Nudie Patootie eyeshadow palette is not a new release. It came out in 2018. So it might seem kinda out of left field that I’m talking about it here on Dream in Lace but after having SO MUCH success trying GlamLifeGuru’s Tati Beauty palette…I thought hmmmm. I like Laura Lee on YouTube. She’s having a Cyber Week sale. MAYBE I should pick something up — and so I did.
I don’t recall specifically what video it was, but I do recall in recent history Laura addressing that her makeup line didn’t have any new releases right now but she has several in the pipeline for next year.
So! I’m going to be booking myself a spot in line for those when they do hit market. For now? We’re going to take a look at her massive nude palette – because y’know. I just can’t get enough of those… ha!
Laura Lee Nudie Patootie Eyeshadow Palette
When the Laura Lee Nudie Patootie palette arrived on my doorstep I was honestly shook by the size. Trust me, these pictures do not do justice the scale of just how mighty this beauty is!! Trust me when I say the palette is LONG. I’m also quite smitten with the name. It’s just darn cute!
Tucked inside are 14 full-sized shades – with a generous mixture of 8 mattes, 4 shimmers and 2 foils.
I know from watching her YouTube channel that Laura Lee is pretty picky when it comes to eyeshadows. On more than one occasion I’ve watched her thumbs down shadows I actually quite like so I was eager to see what she would bring to the table with her own palette.
Down below, I’ll walk you through everything you need to know about Nudie Patootie and if it’s worth adding to your collection.

Meet the 14 shades included in the Laura Lee Nudie Patootie Palette:
- Stark: Shimmery ivory white
- Exposed: Shimmery pewter
- Undressed: Matte honey nude
- Au Naturale: Bronze foil shadow threaded with glitter
- Topless: Shimmery chrome pink threaded with gold glitter
- Reveal: Matte taupe brown
- Striking: Matte dark bisque
- Jaybird: Copper foil threaded with gold

- Butt Naked: Matte warm brown
- Strip: Matte golden mustard
- Buff: Shimmery deep brown with warm undertones
- Bare: Matte peach
- Nakey Nakey: Matte deep brown with cool undertones
Looking at the shade selection, I was immediately impressed!
While the palette is by name a neutral palette, it ventures into new territory that none of the neutral palettes already living in my collection touch. Such as, I really love the pewter shade “Exposed” and think it’s rather unique that Laura Lee included a mustard yellow as well as a matte pink.
Texture and Consistency:
Right away, I want to say that all of the shades included in the Laura Lee Nudie Patootie eyeshadow palette are SOFT. As such, they do come with a fair amount of kickback but it’s kickback I’ll take because of how easily they blend out. The shadows have a very buttery formula that smooths on easily both with brushes as well as your finger.
I’ll also say that the shadows are incredibly easy to work – no matter your skill level.
How long do the shadows last?
Here’s where I personally get super picky. I just cannot be bothered with eyeshadow that flakes off in just a few hours. I also can’t be bothered to touch up throughout the day. I like bullet-proof eyeshadows that last all day long – right up to the moment I wash them off. Well, these fit the bill!
Cruelty Free and Vegan Formula
Animal lovers rejoice because the Laura Lee Nudie Patootie eyeshadow formula is certified cruelty-free and vegan. Hallelujah!
Where Can You Can Buy the Palette
Unfortunately, at the moment the Laura Lee Nudie Patootie eyeshadow palette is only available on the Laura Lee Los Angeles website. Hopefully that will change down there road but shipping was quick! Laura Lee’s website also accepts Afterpay should you like to use that as well.
For the best value: I recommend picking the palette up through a bundle. Such as, I purchased a best-sellers bundle with the palette that also included a highlighting palette, lip gloss AND a loose highlighter for only $44. That’s a steal if you ask me!

Overall Grade: B+
Overall, I really am quite taken with the Laura Lee Nudie Patootie palette! It’s a massive palette that truly has a lot to offer in terms of versatility. The shades are everyday neutrals, but also quite different than any of the many other neutral palettes I already own. So all-in-all, Laura Lee’s created something that does add value to my makeup collection.
My only wish is that one of the matte blending shades was swapped out for a black. I’m all about smoking out a look with black shadow so that would have made for a wonderful addition to the shade lineup. If I was to vote one shade out, I think Butt Naked would go as it doesn’t really accomplish anything that Streak doesn’t already do when worn on the eyes.
