Philosophy The Supernatural Coloring Book Review and Swatches

This Muse wasn’t placing any bets on absolutely loving the new Philosophy Supernatural Coloring Book.

It’s a little expensive, a little bit too tiny for the price, and well…the colors aren’t exactly as bright and fun as I like ’em. Turns out it’s a total winner and comes with my highest Muse Approval to date.

They were so not kidding when they said this contained everything I needed to create a super natural face. Then I saw my face and now I’m a believer people!

Take the jump to hear the rave!

The Philosophy Supernatural Coloring Book contains all the essentials for creating a natural, nude, minimal makeup look. At first glance this purse friendly palette looked a little too tiny for it’s $37 price tag but after trying it out I was dropping to my knees in praise at how incredible it made my skin and face look.

Housed inside the flip top palette is a full size mirror, 2 eyeshadows, 3 blushes, and 2 lipglosses. You can pretty much create any number of looks with the palette but actually you’ll notice that you’ll end up using almost all the items in the palette to create one complete natural look.

You’ll get a nude and cream shade of eyeshadow, a nude bronze shade and a dusky rose shade of blush, one dusky rose cream blush shade, a deep brick red lip color, and a nude shimmering peach shade of gloss. Now the shades and blush have a chalky formula just looking at them but turns out they blend beautifully and seamlessly on the skin. The pigmentation is subtle on each product but it’s just enough to accentuate your features without overpowering them with color.

The palette is created with skin loving antioxidant rich colors that supposedly soften and brighten the skin. Well, I’m a believer as after use my skin looked incredibly luminous. The formula is also free of harmful ingredients such as parabens.

For my look below I used the cream shadow to highlight my high brow and proceeded to brush on the nude shade from lid to crease. On my cheeks I used a bit of the dusty rose powder blushes followed up with a little of the cream blush to deepen the shadow. I brushed the bronzer along my forehead and sides of my face. I completed the look with the brick red shade of lip color and topped with the gloss.

For Fall this has to be my most flattering look to date. I love how it looks like I barely have makeup on. I adored how it brightened my skin up and created a flawless look on my cheeks and face.

Overall, I must say although the palette looks a tad boring it actually packs a powerful punch. I liked it very much and was very impressed. Now let’s hope this won’t go anywhere otherwise I need to stock up and purchase a few of ’em. All in all a total Muse Approval for purchase. This one I can see myself reaching for again and again and again…

If you love your make super natural this one’s for you.

Loves it!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Oh…sometimes I think I gotta stop reading your blog *won’t be able to though* cause of all the makeup goodie cravings you cause!

    Anyhow, I wanted to ask you a little bit about eyeliners/Kohl pencils. I find that for my darkbrown eyes a black eyeliner can be a bit to harsh. Your eyeliner in these pics looks great! Are there any products/colors you’d recommend?

    I’ve been using Chanel’s Amber colored one (love it btw except for the hole it burns in my wallet) but…well, it’s the only one I use!
    Have had bad experiences with some since they cause eye irritation so I figured I give it a go asking the dear muse for sum advice =)

    Hm, this seems intriguing! No parabens and pretty, soft colors.

    Damn, another thing I might have to buy. 😉

    I actually have gotten rid of a lot of my face makeup recently, since it was getting old and I’m not fond of the idea of germs or bacteria… hehe. I don’t wear foundation but I do love blush! These look absolutely gorgeous. The lip colors do as well.

      hey mollie

      LOVE this. Check it out next trip to Sephora. It’s awesome! I’m the same I do a cleansing every month to see what’s lurking that needs to be tossed. I’m a germ-a-phobe 😀

      This is cutes!!!!!! No nonsense and easy to tote around!

    I found these, along with a bunch of other philosophy makeup, at “big Lots” for $3 a piece! I bought 2 of everything! This palette is, by far, my favorite! You’re right! It creates the most beautiful and softest look I’ve ever done! I’m going back for a couple more of these! I also got some of their cream blushes and LOVE those, too! The best thing about these products is they don’t irritate my sensitive eyes and skin. The bronzer shade in this palette is over the top gorgeous! thanks for the great review!
