Too Faced + Vegas Nay Star Dust

Review & Swatches!

"Too Faced Cosmetics & Instagram superstar @Vegas_Nay have teamed up
for the perfect hashtag-worthy collaboration: 
an exclusive 12 shadow palette, a glittering Glamour Dust, 
deluxe size of best selling Shadow Insurance & Better Than Sex Mascara, 
and six original looks created by the social media sensation herself!"
This is a Limited Edition set exclusive to Ulta Beauty
With an amazing Price of $45usd (value $192!)
I've been following Naomi (@Vegas_nay) since I started my Instagram, she's such a inspiration!
I was so excited to get my hands on this baby the second it was available!
Swatches below!

 First let me talk about the presentation & attention to detail that never lacks with Too Faced!
Are you serious Too Faced, could you get any cuter?!
This Palette arrives in a chunky Pink cardboard box with a magnetic flap 
The box parts in the centre & opens like a book, displaying shots of Naomi & her Instagram work.
Each side opens at the top, with the palette in one side & the extra goodies in the other.
Too Faced continues to have the most amazing, creative products 
on the market with the cutest packaging!
The palette also opens like a little book, displaying the 12 shadows
3 Matte, 4 Satin, 5 Shimmer
All new colours & exclusive to this palette!
Highly pigmented, not what I would call buttery shadows, 
they have the same texture & colour pay off as typical Too Faced shadows, 
like the Chocolate Bar palette for example, blends out like a dream!
And the extras, all Deluxe Samples - Shadow Insurance, a anti-crease eyeshadow primer, 
Better Than Sex Mascara, one of my fave mascaras for long voluminous lashes 
And the glittering Glamour Dust, this is essentially a loose pigment for the eyes, 
 a stunning pale champagne gold shade. I love this in the inner corner!

Chandelier Sheen Cream/White

Millennial Matte Warm Caramel,

Girls Night Matte Warm Brown,

#selfie Shimmery Champagne,

Showgirl Metallic Copper Bronze.

Jackpot Shimmer Deep Brown

Pink Pearl Satin true Pinky Pearl

The Strip Shimmery Purple Grey

Follow Me Satin Hot Purple

Double Tap Satin Red Brown

Golden Nugget Metallic Gold

Sin City Matte True Black

Chandelier is described as a matte cream  but definitely has a slight sheen,

making it a beautiful highlight shade on the brow bone & inner corner

Millennial is a delicious medium warm caramel with a matte finish,

perfect in the crease as a transition shade for the other, more intense shades.

Girls Night is another warm matte shade, but a deeper more red-toned brown,

I like it in the crease or to deepen up the outer V & lower lashline.

#selfie is a beautiful silvery champagne with slight pearly shimmer,

this is also a perfect highlight shade, more shimmer then Chandelier.

Showgirl is a crazy beautiful, metallic finish, intense bronze shade,

The texture of this colour is so buttery, it applies well with a brush or your fingers

Jackpot is a deep chocolate brown with golden micro glitters

Highly pigmented, but slightly on the chalky side

Pink Pearl is exactly as described, a pearly pink with a sheen finish

The Strip is an interesting mauvey grey shade with intense silver shimmers/glitters

It's quite chunky & doesn't give much colour pay off, try using a wet shadow brush 

Follow Me is a intense blue purple with blue shimmer, this colour was hard to swatch

it doesn't give much pigmentation & can be patchy, once again try a wet shadow brush

Double Tap is a deep red brown, almost matte finish but has very fine violet shimmer

this is quite a dry shadow, probably the reason it comes off matte at first swatch

Golden Nugget holy sh** this is stunning! A metallic/foiled yellow toned Gold!

This has the same texture as Showgirl, buttery & amazing pigmentation

Sin City is a true Black with a Matte finish. No grey, no blue..Black!

The texture is soft & swatches the pigment evenly, not patchy.

(Eye look using Golden Nugget, Millennial & Girls Night)

This is an AMAZING set for the price! $45usd (approx $70nzd)
And would make a great gift for someone getting in to makeup or 
wanting to try some Too Faced products!
Remember this is a Limited Edition palette, so once it's gone!
Still available on & instore Ulta Beauty.
