Hey guys and happy Saturday! Sorry to be mia yesterday, my family went for a little overnight outing, so we were a wee bit busy. Today we’re going to discuss warm toned eyeshadow palettes as well as my thoughts on the new Tarte Tartelette Toasted eyeshadow palette. Warm toned eyeshadows are all the rage right now, and I’m not mad at it. Warm tones are my personal favorite since they flatter my undertone more so than cool toned shadows, which tend to make me look sick. Today I’m going to show you swatches of the warm toned palettes I own. Hopefully, if you’ve been looking at getting one, this post will help you decide which might be right for you! So, let’s go ahead and get into it.
First we’re going to discuss the new Tarte Tartelette Toasted palette, let’s take a gander, shall we?
I think Tarte nailed it with this palette, it’s well-rounded, user-friendly, and easy to create complete looks with. I think this palette is suitable for beginners but in general, anyone would enjoy it. Two BIG thumbs up from me!
Next up is the Tarte Pro To Go palette. This is a mini palette but it packs a punch, with almost everything you need to create a complete look (missing a cream/white shade, in my opinion) I think this little palette is a top contender! The formula here is pigmented, smooth and the shadows blend nicely. While this palette doesn’t scream warm toned, the main crease shade pulls warm, there’s a nice gold, a few neutral shades and some nice plummy jewel tones. I think this palette is great for those just dipping their toes in the shadow game, or anyone that doesn’t wanna drop big bucks on a palette (it will only run you $23.00!).
Next is the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette. Again, this palette is beautiful, pigmented, easy to work with, and has everything you need for daytime looks to dark nighttime looks. This palette isn’t primarily warm like some we’re going to discuss but there are definitely quite a few warm toned shades in it. The mix of warm, neutral and cool make it more versatile for more people. I think this palette would suit most anyone from beginner to advanced, highly recommend!
Next is another Too Faced palette, the Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes. This is one of my top favorites in terms of eye shadow palettes. It’s got everything I need to create simple, light daytime appropriate looks but also, dark nighttime looks. I love the shade selection, I love the formula, it smells like a peach, I think this palette is really user-friendly and easy to work with. 10/10 would highly recommend! 🙂
Next is the Urban Decay Naked Heat palette. *Le sigh* This palette is the most aesthetically pleasing to my eye, I think it’s the most intriguing and most beautiful to look at, but? This beaut is not user-friendly and I would say, not for beginners. I would actually venture to say that Urban Decay shadows in general aren’t for beginners. They are REALLLLLLY pigmented and you’ve gotta be careful and know how to blend. I absolutely love this palette, I think it’s the most unique warm toned palette that I’ve tried. The metallics in this palette are so unique and even the darker mattes, I’ve never seen anything like them. Who is this for? A makeup lover with some experience in blending. Haha! This is a palette I’ll go to for a nighttime dramatic eye, I don’t usually gravitate to it for daytime looks but I can definitely make it work… and it’s worth it for those stunning metallic shades.
Last up is the Colourpop Yes, Please! palette. Since I just did a full review on this palette (that was actually my last post! Go check it out if you want the full on nitty-gritty), I’m going to cut straight to the chase, I don’t think this palette is necessarily the best for beginners, I think this one leans SO warm that it can get “I have the flu and am sick” really quickly (haha!). Similar to the Urban Decay, this one almost leans completely orangey/red with not much else to work it and that can sometimes be challenging to work with. This palette is nice and I’ve achieved some really pretty looks with it but be careful if you’re still new to the eyeshadow game (but really, do whatever you want, there are no rules in makeup!). Bonus? This will only cost you $16.00, and the quality competes with these high-end shadow palettes (with a few small caveats… see my full review for those details), win win! Overall, nicely done Colourpop.
To sum it all up! My favorite palette of all of these is probably the Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes palette, I reach for it almost everyday that I wear makeup because it’s so versatile and blends so easily. If I want a pop of shimmer, I just reach for the highlight I’m using that day, use my finger to pop a little on the center of the lid, and in the inner corner. My other favorite is the Tarte Tartelette Toasted palette, I think it’s really well-rounded and easy to use. If I was going to recommend one to a beginner, I’d say the Tarte Tartelette Toasted palette, for sure. I love all of these palettes here though so if one catches your eye, it’s got my stamp of approval and I recommend it! With that, we conclude this review, swatchfest, warm toned palette goodness.
