It’s Saturday! So, that means I have swatches of some sort to show you all, and as promised I have something pretty fun and exciting to share. I don’t believe I have swatched a palette other than the small Wet n Wild ones in a long time on my blog. To be honest, I haven’t really wanted to buy any high end palettes since the Kat Von D one I bought. However, this one caught my fancy and I totally snagged it.
If you have an instagram account and follow any beauty personalities, you’ve probably seen this palette already. If you don’t know who Vegas Nay is, she has an instagram account with over 6 million followers and posts mostly looks from other bloggers. Her name is actually Naomi, and I think she’s lovely. I love how supportive she is of others and their work.
Anyway, this palette can be found on the Too Faced website, or at Ulta. It retails at $45, but of course you can save money with ebates on either the Too Faced site or Ulta.com. I actually got this palette with an extra 20% off + free shipping, free samples, and money back on ebates. I’m all about the frugal(ish) life. I will leave my ebates referall code at the end of the post, but don’t feel pressured to use it. I just think Ebates is an awesome way to get cash back on orders and halfway justify makeup splurges.
This is everything I got with the palette, and I feel that it’s a lot! The palette itself comes with the star dust shimmer, eye primer, and mini better than sex mascara. When I ordered I was able to snag two other deluxe samples, the primed and poreless primer and lashgasm mascara.
Ah, can we talk about that loveliness? There’s not a lot I love more makeup wise than a beautifully packaged palette filled with neutral shades. There are 12 shades in all in this palette, and the pans are pretty big. All in all, this palette is pretty big, but because it’s slimmer it’s still easy to store, in my opinion.
How did these swatch? For me, these swatched very well. The only one that felt a bit too soft and crumbly was “Jack Pot” and it honestly reminded me of the exact same texture as ‘Chocolate Martini” in the Natural Eyes palette.
Are there any repeats? The only ones that look like repeats from what I own are “Jackpot” which looks like Chocolate Martini and “Double Tap” which reminds me of Cherry Cordial from the Chocolate Bar palette. I think Double Tap may be more brown than red toned compared to Cherry Cordial though.
Is this palette worth it? This is my pure 100% honest and unfiltered opinion…yes. I really love this palette, but I truly adore most of the palettes Too Faced has come out with. They’re one of the only brands other than Kat Von D where I will plan out buying new palettes they release. I think this palette is an awesome collection piece if you collect, and I think it’s also an awesome neutral palette to have that has potential for fun and dark/vampy looks.
Too often I see neutral palettes only go for the everyday look range, and don’t put in darker shades to take it to that next glamorous step. But really, are we surprised that a palette that Vegas Nay has signed off on to not include some sultry shades? This palette has everything I look for in a palette: mattes, shimmers, glitters, a few fun colors, and a stellar matte black. For me, this is the kind of palette I can reach for without having to pull from other palettes.Not to mention, you get a stardust shimmer, mini better than sex mascara, and primer with your purchase.
Favorite Shades? I feel like I will get the most use out of Chandelier, Millenial, Girl’s Night, #selfie, Pink Pearl, The Strip, Double Tap, and Sin City. Show Girl and Golden Nugget will probably be the shades that get kinda ignored, but I don’t reach for bronze and gold shades often.
chandelier, millenial, girl’s night, #selfie, showgirl, jackpot, pink pearl, the strip, follow me
double tap, golden nugget, sin city
That black is almost as dark as I like my coffee.
What are your thoughts on this palette? Is it on your wish list? As for my wish list…it’s never ending it seems. Everyone is releasing awesome new palettes and lipsticks and I can’t keep up. Ha!
I hope you all enjoyed this review, and as always thanks for stopping by! If you’re new to my blog, I hope you decide to sign up for emails and stay awhile.
Have a good day, lovelies.

Thank you so much! It made my day to see my post 🙂 I’m so happy that you enjoyed it!
Sweet baby Jesus, are these shades pigmented or what!!?? I do the same thing you do… order with a coupon and samples and ebates which means hey I saved money I’m awesome! I actually save the samples though and sale them together on Ebay. Ususally 4-5 Too Faced samples will sale for about $20 so after shipping and fees that’s like getting another $16ish off your palette!
These are super pigmented! Too Faced shadows have always been high quality to me, but these felt different? But in a good way. I’m gonna have to start doing that with my samples. I love Too Faced samples, but all the ones I get from other places just go unused lol. I typically stick random ones in people’s orders on Poshmark if they make a big order.
Noooooo sale them as lots! I’m telling you, it pays off! Which in the end only means, MORE MONEY FOR MAKEUP! Hehe 🙂
Haha! That’s really the only reason I have Poshmark now if I’m being honest. I sell what I don’t use or swatched and didn’t like and then buy more makeup :p win win.
