Too Faced Country Nashville Nudes Eyeshadow Palette
Too Faced Country Nashville Nudes Eyeshadow Palette ($36.00 for 0.39 oz.) includes nine eyeshadows; three are larger (0.07 oz. each) and six are smaller (0.03 oz. each). It’s an Ulta-exclusive palette that launches on June 1st. Some of the shades are really nice, some are lacking pigmentation, and a few are on the powdery side. If you usually use a primer, I think you’ll probably be okay, but it doesn’t work as nicely as the Rock ‘n’ Roll palette.
I double-checked with Too Faced, and they confirmed June 1st as the launch date on Friday (5/30). Unfortunately, I don’t have any other information on whether there is a new date, it’s simply late, or if there is some other reason for the delay. I highly suggest calling your local ULTA before making a drive to visit. Update on 6/3/14: Too Faced says there are shipment delays to retailers at this time, and the palettes are now pushed back to end of the month.
Cowboy Take Me Away is a light peach with a satin finish. It had excellent color payoff, while the texture was soft, blendable, and smooth–not at all powdery. The color lasted for eight hours on me before fading. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
Y’all is a muted, golden brown with a frosted sheen. It had decent pigmentation, and the texture was blendable but somewhat powdery and wasn’t as smooth to apply. It wore well for seven and a half hours before fading. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
Dolly is a dark, subtly cool-toned brown with a semi-matte finish. It had good color payoff, and the texture was fairly soft without being powdery. It lasted just over eight hours before I noticed fading. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
Famous in a Small Town is a brightened, warm white with a frosted, slightly metallic, finish. It had great pigmentation, and the consistency of the powder was soft, smooth, and buttery. The color stayed on the lid well for eight hours. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
Paper Roses is a medium, warm-toned pink with gold shimmer and a frosted finish. It had really good color coverage, and the texture was soft, blendable, and smooth. This shade managed to wear well for eight hours. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
Rhinestone is a muted, dark eggplant purple with neutral undertones and a soft, pearly finish. It had decent color payoff, but it could have been more intense, and the texture was somewhat powdery, which made it prone to sheering out on the lid. It would be best applied over a primer or slightly tacky base. It looked faded before eight hours of wear. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
All American Girl is a golden ivory with a frosted sheen. It was semi-sheer, and the texture was very thin–almost hard but not really stiff–which gave it a very smooth application, but the payoff wasn’t there. This shade showed signs of creasing after seven hours of wear. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
Nashville is a muted, cool-toned, gray-purple with a soft, frosted finish. It had good color payoff, and the texture was fairly soft and buttery, though just a bit powdery. The color lasted well for eight hours. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
Bluebird is a sparkling, navy blue with cool undertones and a soft, frosted finish. It was dry, almost chunky in a way, though the shimmer isn’t glitter and feels somewhere between shimmer and sparkle in regards to particle size. It just didn’t bind well together, unfortunately, which made it harder to work with. The color started to crease after seven hours of wear. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
