I love when drugstore companies come out with new foundations, I cannot wait to try this one!!

A special antioxidant and vitamin complex plus SPF 20 work together to make your skin look healthy all day. Give your skin a luminous glow. Available in multiple shades from light to deep.
If you love the colors in this palette then you will love this!! I love Too Faced palettes, especially these 9 pan palettes. The formula is just like the others – fabulous! They are very creamy and soft. They really blend well and apply so nicely with a brush. They last all day and don’t crease if you use a primer.
It is supposed to smell like peanut butter and honey but I don’t think it does. It just has an artificial scent to it. It isn’t bad, but I just can’t smell the honey. It kind of smells like the Chocolate Bar Palette with a hint of artificial peanut butter.
As far as the colors go – they aren’t not my favorite colors. I really love the formula and I love how cute the palette is, but these are not my kind of colors. This will look so amazing on people that can pull of these shades, but for my skin tone it just doesn’t work. I really like these shades though: Peanut Butter, Creamed Honey, Honey Brittle, and Feelin’ Nutty. That yellow shade, Honey Buns, is so pigmented!! I really love that pop of yellow. It isn’t an everyday shade for me but it might come in handy around Halloween.
I don’t think this palette is a must. But if you love Too Faced or if you are a makeup junkie like me then you probably need it 🙂
Nothing can keep us from sculpting – Love Contours All! This uh-mazing NYX Cosmetics palette has literally everything you need for complete definition. It includes pigmented eyeshadows in edgy, neutral tones, blendable highlighting and contouring shades, and beautiful brow powders. Yes! You can create a whole look using one sleek palette. Hold on, this heart just skipped a beat.
This palette, like most NYX palettes, is amazing!!! If you love any of the NYX most recent palettes like the Avant Pop Palette, you will love this one. This palette is really good!! It has everything you will ever need for many different looks. You can use all of these shades on your eyes and in many different ways, they are so versatile. I love all of the shades in this palette!
All of these shades are so pigmented, you can see by the swatches. They also work so well with your brush and blend really nicely. The matte shades in these palettes are my favorite. The shimmer shades are nice too but I just love matte eyeshadows. Do you see how black that shade is?? YEAH!
The contour and highlight shades are so amazing as well! They are so pigmented and the perfect shades.
The only downfall is they are a little powdery and there’s some fallout, but I can live with that.
This palette is totally worth it and if you can get it from Ulta with the buy 1 get 1 50% off, it is even more worth it!

Create a spectrum of out-of-this-world eye looks with the Cosmic Metals Shadow Palette– a new eyeshadow set inspired by NYX Cosmetics Professional Makeup’s beloved Cosmic Metals Lip Cream. Powered by six pigment-packed eyeshadows, this gorgeous set loads your lids with rich, metallic color and incredible color payoff.
This palette was just okay, it didn’t really WOW me. Partly because I LOVE matte shadows and these are all shimmery shadows. If you love shimmery shadows or the colors of these shadows then you will love this palette.
The eyeshadow formula is really good. It is nice and creamy and pigmented. these are dry packed shadows but they almost feel wet when you apply them on the skin. It seems like that happens with most foiled shadows though. They blend really nicely and look beautiful on the lids. They will crease if you don’t use a primer. But other than that I think they are great drugstore foiled shadows. SWATCHES:
