Too Faced Country Nashville Nudes Palette

 

Country Palette

I have not purchased a Too Faced eyeshadow palette recently (within the last 3 or 4 years, I think), so the first thing I noticed when I got my hands on this is the change in packaging.  Not only is it a bit sleeker than what I’m used to, but the new metal container has a magnetic closure.  I LOVE this feature.  It makes it easy to open yet secure when closed.  Good job on that update, Too Faced.

The Too Faced Country Nashville Nudes eye shadow palette contains 9 different shadows, 3 large and 6 small.  I have found this palette to be incredibly wearable on a daily basis.  I love the natural look of these shades.  All fall within the nude-ish spectrum while some offer a nice, but not outrageous, pop of color.  The pigmentation, formula, and staying power of the shadows very a little bit, but all in all the quality is pretty great and I have been loving wearing these shadows.

Let’s start with the larger shadows.  Each of these shadows are 0.07 oz.  Generally they are meant to be the all over color, so having a bit more of the base shadows is a nice touch.  This is a trait of many of the Too Faced palettes.

Cowboy Take Me Away- This shade is a beautiful peach color that goes on smooth and stays on quite nicely with a satin finish.  The shadow is soft and not powdery or flaky.  At first I worried this would be too pink toned, but it turns out to be an amazing all over lid color.

Famous in a Small Town- This is a warm toned white with a frosted finish.  If you’re going for a little more shimmer and brightness all over, this shadow is great.  The pigmentation is strong and the application is soft and smooth, with a great staying power.

All American Girl- You might notice that you can barely see this one swatched on my arm.  I thought it would be more pigmented but the only thing I really get is the shimmer, rather than the natural ivory tone that it looks like should come with it (my photo makes it look a little more taupe than flesh toned).  The application is still nice and smooth, but unfortunately the color payout isn’t there.  Of course, a shadow like this can still be useful when it comes to adding a little bit of frost to the over all look or as a brow highlight.

The smaller shadows are 0.03 oz.

Y’all-   A brownish gold.  Super high pigmentation, but a less smooth application.  This one seems to gather on my shadow brush and crumble a bit in the pan at the same time, making it easy to have some fallout on your face if you aren’t careful.  The color is nice though, once you get past the consistency of the shadow itself.

Paper Roses- A warm pink with gold toned frost.  I’ve always been afraid to put pink on my eyes.  Part of me just feels like it’s going to end up aiding in the look of red, tired, or irritated eyes.  What I like about this color is that it blends nicely with the other gold toned colors in the palette making it look (somewhat) natural and not overwhelming.  This is one of the few deeper pink shadows that I’ve been in contact with that made me think “pretty” rather than “scary.” The application is smooth, the color is pigmented, and it blends really nicely with the other colors, making it more wearable (in my opinion)

Nashville-  A beautiful grey toned purple.  This color is a little powdery, but it still applies smooth with a strong pigmentation.  I love this shade as a day time smokey eye or a nice pop of subtle color.  My green eyes interact well with purple toned colors, and this one is not overwhelming making it nice for day or night.

Dolly-  A deep, cool-toned, semi-matte brown.  Application is pretty smooth and it’s highly pigmented.  It’s a great crease color for smokey looks, or for day time it’s nice to use this to line your upper lids.

Rhinestone- A plum purple with silver frost and a little bit of glitter.  Pigmentation is a bit splotchy (as you can see in the photo) and the formula is a little too powdery, making fallout a risk and when applied the color starts to fade, requiring several layers for a deeper coverage.  It’s a pretty color, but definitely one of the least smooth in the palette.

Bluebird- A cool, deep navy blue.  This is the most difficult one to work with, as the shadow is chunky and the particles are rather large.  It looks as though there is some blue glitter in here, but that could also be the powdery pieces of shimmer.  Color payout is good, but it’s harder to apply and to blend.  My least favorite in the palette, but still a pretty color.

 

All in all, I love this palette! On most days I am a neutral shade eye shadow wearer and this palette allows me to stay on the neutral spectrum and feel a little bit more adventurous.  Because the shades are generally lighter, I recommend using a primer to ensure you get the most wear out of the shadows.  The Too Faced Country Palette is an Ulta exclusive, but can also be found on the Too Faced website,  and is $36.  The palette launched back on June 1, 2014 along with the Rock ‘N Roll Palette.

 

I am a huge fan of the Too Faced brand, especially when it comes to eyeshadows.  Thank you to the lovely people at Too Faced for sending me this product so I could have the chance to try it and write about it.  All opinions are my own.
