If you follow me on Twitter , I shared the picture of the palette I’ll be reviewing today… 😊
It’s the Taos Neutral Eyeshadow Palette!
A little introduction; TAOS cosmetics is a Nigerian makeup brand established about 2 years ago. They have really nice eyeshadows and their lip velvetines look amazing(been eyeing them for ages…lol)
So, they recently released their neutral eyeshadow palette and when I saw it, I jus had to have it. Why? Because it looked so much like the Morphe 35O palette(which I’d been wanting since forever). It was sold out on their site and also on Beautyrevng initially but after a little stalking, I got it from Beautyrevng. And I’m super excited to share with you guys..💃🏼
It comes in a black palette and on opening it, 35 eyeshadow pans stare at you; with colours ranging from nudes to oranges and browns(basically warm colours).
This palette has a mixture of matte and shimmer shades(so you can go from day/subtle looks to night/dramatic looks. The shades are sooo pretty(I could stare at this palette all day🙂)
As for pigmentation, these eyeshadows are pigmented. “The true test of eyeshadow pigmentation is a matte eyeshadow”(that’s my quote yo!)
The matte eyeshadows in this palette are really pigmented,especially the coral and orange shades. The shimmer ones are very pigmented and 1 or 2 of them could serve as beautiful highlighters(especially #4 and #10).
There is minimal fallout from the matte shadows but I didn’t experience any fallout from the shimmer ones. I noticed that the colour payoff was better with an eyeshadow primer.
The swatches of the shades are below(I numbered them from left to right: #1 – #35)
I really like this palette. I think it’s good value for money and a great buy for everyone. If you’re a beginner, there are lots of shades to play around and learn with. It’s also good for a professional because you don’t have to carry so many palettes when you’re on the move. Plus it’s a Morphe 35O dupe(from what I can see).
I wish it had a mirror and a matte black shade, but I know I’m reaching..
It’s a great palette and I’ll score it an eight and a half out of ten.
