So far this year I've been really excited about new products, in particular new makeup products. What kicked it off was really the Tati Beauty Textured Neutrals Vol. 1 palette. I'm kinda revamping and decluttering my makeup collection some, especially with palettes and only keeping the formulas that I really love and what I use the most. So today I'm going to specifically talk about the Tati Beauty palette and let you see how it's laid out and what it can do.
This palette is super sturdy, has a soft matte black/grey finish (the same feel like a NARS classic compact or palette). It's heavy and has a great mirror. There are 24 pans. It's all color coordinated. There's a pressed glitter row, metallic row, sequin row, and a matte row. That's 4 finishes in 5 different shades. The colors are: black, brown, orange, tan, ivory, and a cranberry/wine red. The pressed glitters are true pressed glitters, not just pigment with some glitter in it. It's all glitter in the pan and they are impeccable and stay intact really well in the pan. That's my favorite row, but a close second is the Sequin finish. This is a really cool finish. Especially in the more Ivory color because it's a matte/satin finish with tiny flecks of glitter or shimmer that catch different colors in the light, like gold sparkle or a pink sparkle. It's amazing because it's very subtle in the pan, easy to apply, but stands out. I personally use those shades PACKED on, to the lid to maximize the tiny flecks and pigment. The matte finish is like butter. That black matte shade is the best one I've ever used but it's INTENSE. Do not underestimate the matte shades they are full of pigment and apply very full coverage. They blend beautifully, don't get me wrong, but they have a ton of pigment to them. I didn't notice much fall out, except a little fall out from glitter. I also don't notice a lot of kick up in the pan. I've not played a whole lot with the metallic row, other than just swatching them. They look like foil, which I expected no less.
I didn't, and still haven't, watched Tati's video debuting this palette. I've not watched any reviews. My friend Rhea got it and told me how insane it was and then sent me her swatches. I was so blown away by the glitter that I jumped on it as soon as it came back in stock. So I don't know of any issues or "drama" that might be out there concerning this palette for other people. I can only tell you that my experience has been phenomenal. I've been pretty rough with this palette and it's held up. I usually never accidentally disturb shadows with my nails or anything like that and sure enough I did on this one with the metallic and pressed glitter row (multiple times actually). It was absolutely no problem they just pressed back into the pan like before. I have gotten the palette dirty of course because it's a soft matte touch but because it is that soft matte texture on the outside, it wipes off very easily.
I know this is going to be permanent. From what I understand they only order as many palettes as they think they need and when they sell out of that stock, they order more. They offer after-pay which is awesome. With shipping cost it's a little over $50, I think, all together. I've paid more for less to be honest. This is a palette that is unlike anything on the market due to all the different formulas especially the row of pressed glitter. The matte formula in here is just like butter man. Kinda reminds me of Natasha Denona meets Jeffree Star matte formulas. The sequin finish is something I've not seen and you almost have to see it in person to understand what I'm talking about but I hope pictures will do it justice. I know there will be more installments later on to the line because this is only Vol. 1. I'm probably going to get them all, just being honest. This is definitely a "go to" palette for your everyday or smokey neutral looks and I'm cool with that.
