REVIEW: Too Faced “Star Dust” by Vegas Nay

 

If you are a beauty junkie or like to dwell in the makeup world, you are bound to hear the brand name “Too Faced” and/or “Vegas Nay”, not necessarily together though. Too Faced cosmetics has teamed up with the famous Vegas Nay, and given us a wonderful limited edition “STARDUST” palette this holiday season. If you do not know Vegas Nay yet, have a look at my previous article where I met her and attended her workshop.

Today I am going to show you this new edition with in-depth review, swatches and lots of pictures.

SHADOWS & SWATCHES:

The 12 eyeshadows are a good mix of matte and shimmery finish. The colors lean more on warm side. The shadows are definitely pigmented with or without primer but a primer will increase the staying power.
