Too Faced Country Fall 2014

Yee-haw time to embrace your inner country girl for Fall with the Too Faced Country Nashville Nudes Eyeshadow Palette! Wait, you can’t take the city out of this girl! But I guess I’ll give it a try for Too Faced’s sake!

Too Faced Country Nashville Nudes Eyeshadow Palette is one of two new palettes that launched with the Too Faced Fall 2014 Collection!

Take a peek!

Too Faced Country Nashville Nudes Palette

I love, love, love Too Faced Eyeshadow Palettes. They combine great eyeshadow shades with a fantastic formula and easy to follow instructions for creating eye looks.

The last few releases of the Too Faced Eyeshadow Palette Boxes have switched from cardboard to a new tin design. This is the case with the Too Faced Country Nashville Nudes Eyeshadow Palette! It comes housed in a sturdy tin compact featuring nine shades of eyeshadow as well as a mirror and easy to follow instructions for creating three Fall eye looks using the palette!

I think it terms of texture this particularly compact is my least favorite. Typically Too Faced shadows have an extremely soft, creamy texture with an easy to apply formula. But some of these shades are a bit thinner in consistency with a good deal of powdery kick up. Although different in terms of texture this a very nice round up of shades to create both cooler and warmer eye looks. However, beware, as I there is a good deal of fall out so wear a primer or cream base to lessen the mess while applying. The mattes is this palette were very soft and silky but certain shades such as Ya’ll had chunky glitter (I loved Ya’ll in all honesty but the chunky glitter sure is messy!). Other shades had issues being a touch dry like Dolly which applied a bit streaky or Paper Rose did have to be built up since it looks pigmented but applied sheerer.

I was both happy with it and disappointed. If I spent extra time and care creating my looks they came out very good. But the formula lacks the ease of use I’ve had with past palettes because the formula is a touch different so I had problems with pigment and had to built certain shades or issues with blending etc…so this does need a little TLC to get the best possible looks from it!

In the long end, Too Faced Country Nashville Nudes Eyeshadow Palette isn’t the best shadow box I’ve seen from Too Faced! It has some quirks that need to be ironed out for it to be a complete win. But on the other hand, if you’re anything like me, you likely want it to complete your Too Faced Shadow Box Collection eh?

    Rhinestone looks so rich and beautiful! I also love how buttery and blendable Too Faced shadows can be but I find a lot of their shimmery shades have issues with fallout. I do wish they weren’t so messy but I still like them!

    Hmm the shades look really pretty and it’s so cool how they include mini tutorials, but the amount of fallout you mention is kinda scary!
