Too Faced LE Stardust Palette by Vegas Nay: Swatches & Review

Too Faced is by far one of my favorite higher end makeup brands. Their branding and packaging alone sucks me in every time (Chocolate Bar palettes. *wink wink* )

I was so excited and grateful when I saw the limited edition Stardust Palette by Vegas Nay arrive in my mailbox! I couldn't wait to dive in to this palette! If you happen to not know who Vegas Nay is, she's an incredibly talented Instagrammer who posts fabulous looks! So it's exciting to see her partnering with Too Faced on this palette!

The Stardust palette retails for $45 and will be available for purchase online on Ulta and Too Faced's websites on August 23rd, and then in Ulta stores starting September 6th.

Starting with the packaging - In true Too Faced style, the packaging is again...adorable! It's pink, it's girly, it's fun. I love it! The outside box is a bit bulky, but it's because it comes with two separate sides as you'll see in the pictures below. It has a nice magnetic closure on the outside cardboard packaging, which is a nice added touch.  One side contains a glitter pigment, deluxe size samples of the Better Than Sex Mascara and Shadow Insurance, and also some look cards from Vegas Nay.

I love the collection of colors included in this palette. There are lots of neutrals for creating really beautiful everyday looks, but there are also some girly, fun shades like light pinks and a beautiful purple. Everything you need to create a complete eye look is included in this palette - a browbone highlight shade, blending shades, lid shades, and darker colors to deepen up your outer corner. So no need to go grab other shades for a complete eye look!

All of the shadows are nicely pigmented.  A few of the shades (Girl's Night, Double Tap, and Sin City) seem to have a slightly grittier texture to them, but I noticed that after using Double Tap, it became more buttery.  So I'm guessing as I use the other two shades more, they will do the same.  But I've used each of these shades on my eyes, and they still build nicely and blend well.

I'm really enjoying this palette! It's another win from Too Faced in my opinion!

  1. Oh, my goodness, I love Too Faced!!! Thank you Leslie for the swatches and information on this Too Faced LE STARDUST byVEGAS NAY. It strangely just does not strike me as one I want to run out to get, which is highly unusual for me when it comes to Too Faced. I'm impatiently waiting for the Too Faced 2015 holiday palettes because I know they were released sometime in August 2014. Their holiday palettes are great quality, as usual, and their decorative packaging steal my heart!!!
