Hi beauties!
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..💃🏼

Product Description:

Want a classic everyday look/ a complete Hollywood glam? You cannot go wrong with this eyeshadow palette from TAOS. A little birdie told us it is a perfect dupe for the Morphe 35O.

My thoughts:

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.

  1. I’m having a hard time choosing between this Taos neutral pallete and the Nuban intense eyeshadow pallet. Please could you do a review on the nuban Intense eyeshadow pallet


    1. I don’t have the Nuban palette so I can only speak from what I’ve seen of it. It depends on what you want really. The Taos palette has more matte shades while the Nuban has more shimmer shades. Most of the shades in the Taos one are warm toned/brown/orangey while the Nuban has more cool toned colours.
      I hope this helps you making a choice.
      Thanks for reading!
