Looking for a great everyday palette with creamy nudes, matte browns and subtle golds? Lend me your eyes & ears cause I'm going to introduce you to Faces Mineral Eyeshadow trio in Beechwood

Packaging-Compact ,simple & sleek. Comes along with dual sponge tipped applicator and mirror in the palette.

Shades in natural day light

The shadows are very finely milled and buttery smooth.The shades are easy to apply and have minimal fall out. The dark brown shade is matte and nude beige and gold both have pearl finishes.
The trio has a similar color combination as Maybelline Expert wear eyeshadow quad- Chai Latte, but Faces trio is more blendable and easier to apply than Chai Latte quad.

 Swiped on bare skin without base. Gold shade has the best pigmentation out of the three shades.
As promised here's the eye look with the trio-I've not used any base in this look, I've used the pale creamy nude shade on the lids, gold on the inner corner and dark brown shade on the crease & outer corner. I've used Faces Metallic Brown eyeliner pencil.

4.5 grams of palette costs INR 599/- I got mine as gift with purchase of 3 Faces eyeliner pencils.

Overall Thoughts-This palette won't leave you ecstatic, but it works as a fabulous everyday neutral palette for office wear.Gold shade in the palette is gorgeous on its own and can be a great all over lid color as well. I'd recommend this, if you are starting out with makeup or looking for great everyday palette.

  1. Wowww you got this as a gift??? nice ! I was eyeing this but bought the maybelline one as thats more reasonable, this ones bit costly but ya after all these are mineral eye shadows, would buy once my maybelline one is over!

  2. Ooh looks pretty.. I wasn't sure if this would be good coz I bought faces mineral compact powder and it was a dud! The powder was coarse and applying it was a pain and it would just look awful! This looks promising. I find faces is better at colour cosmetics than basics. Love their eye pencils too! Thanks for the review! :)

  3. agree, totally looks like chai latte

  4. Manya-Oh yes I'm glad finally some gift with purchase product which is actually worth using.Personal I don't set much store by mineral makeup,but yes compared to chai latte quad this is easier to blend, do check it out once you hit pan on your Myabelline quad

  5. thePURPLEspirit-Yes even I'm a new convert to Faces eyeliner pencils, I'd been avoiding this brand but I'm might impressed with their eyeliner quality.Not sure about their mineral compact,personally I feel compacts/foundations should be perfect match and even if one needs to spend a little more money totally worth it, considering how long it takes to finish them
    I wouldnt say this is the best eyeshadow trio I've tried, but it works well for everyday neutral looks

    Vanity- Oh yes, uncanny similarities, though the gold is more muted in this one.
