So I’ve been eyeing this palette for a while , I would stick it in my cart and then forget about it . Finally during an Amazon clothing haul I decided to go ahead and order it . Usually I would just order through the company website but I had a gift card. And now it finally has arrived , and I’m impressed with how nice the shimmers are . A few are almost holographic looking . Lets check out the packaging and swatches.
- Chocolat: is a deep matte dark mocha.
- Tart: a beautiful icy unicorn white shimmer with some pink shift.
- Creme a nice pale matte coral color.
- Macarons: sugary Mint shimmer, I used to have an Essence single that I loved that was this color.
- Custard: A matte almost neon Orchid color. Its like Alpha Doll but in eyeshadow form.
- Puffs: an irridescent pink shimmer. It reminds me of Too Faced’s Unicorn Tears.
- Berry Mousse: A color that blends into my skin , no kiddding its a matte sandyish color.
- Mont Blanc: A futuristic graphite shimmer. I love this color, it looks awesome!
- Crepes: A matte coral/peach color. It reminds of the pink sand dunes honestly.
So aside from Berry Mousse being about the same color as my skin , the colors all showed up really nice. I mainly use Berry Mousse as a brow shade any way but I could see using it for maybe a neutral look with a few of the other colors. The other shades showed up really nice and the metallics were great over a tacky base .I didn’t have any problems blending any of the colors or issues with patchiness. Well aside from Chocolat which sometimes need a bit more blending time.But it was nothing too bad. I can see using The Douce with a few of my other palettes , such as the Chocolate Bon Bons, Life’s a Festival and Sugar Pill Funsize .
And finally some looks :
Unicorn Dulce Look
So this was one was one of my favorites, I wore this out to meet some friends , and just loved how springy this was. I’ve been wanting a new pastel mint color along with the pink shimmer puffs. I looked into the new Huda Pastel mini palettes, the mint and the lilac. They really tempted me but I read so many online reviews about how pale they were. So I think this is a nice substitute for the pastel,shimmer look. The shadows I used were Creme’ and a bit of Crepes in my crease, Berry Mousse in the brow, and then I used the Nyx shadow base to kind of cute the crease and make a wing. I used Custard, Macarons,and Puffs on my lid, and repeated these colors on my lower lid as well. Also I remembered I used Tart in the inner corner of my eye as well. These pictures were taken a week or two ago.
Peaches and Cream look
So for this look I decided to use Berry Mousse on my brows, Crepes in my crease, which I tried to blend out, and Chocolat in my V to deepen the crease a bit. Afterwards I used my Nyx white base on my lid. Then I applied Creme and Tart to my lid. Its a really simple look but I thought it paired well with Fenty’s Purpsicle lipstick. I used to have a Hard Candy Peach palette that I think was supposed to dupe the Too Faced’s Sweet Peach, and I used the colors in a similar way. What I like the best about this palette is it does have peach/coral colors that don’t look too orangy, or pinky. So on to the next look.
Pan Dulce Look
So I really wanted to try out that nice silver Mont Blanc color, but I wasn’t sure exactly how I wanted to wear it. And finally I came up with this look based on some Mexican Sweet breads. I used Berry Mousse on my brow, mixed with a bit of Creme, then with a rounded brush I blended in Chocolat in my crease. after some blending I cut the crease a bit ( I’m not even sure its official Cut Crease tbh) with some Nyx white base. afterwards I patted in Custard in my outer corner near Chocolat. For the middle of my lid I used Mont Blanc, and Tart for the inner corner of my eyes. I repeated the shades on my lower lids , making sure to smoke out my outer corners with Chocolat. I then finished up with mascara, liner and Nyx Marshmallow Butter Gloss.
I think overall I really liked the palette ,and it definitely satisfies my need for pastel, mint, and peachy corals. I don’t have too many of these colors in my current makeup collection, as I destashed my Hard Candy peach palette , and my Essence Mint single. Plus I feel like this palette plays nicely with my Life’s A Festival ,Sugar Pill Funsize and Chocolate Bon Bon’s palettes. I was still pretty sad to see Huda’s pastel mini’s get some bad reviews, so I’m a bit iffy on buying those. A few of the shades like Tart and Mont Blanc do start to kind of crease after like 9 hours of wear, but I would say a glitter glue helps out with that to keep things in place. I would recommend this palette for those wanting some pastel candy looks or even a more adventurous neutral palette. I do need to try out my Robot Unicorn Attack inspired look though. I tried it out using Mont Blanc but I still haven’t perfected it yet.
