City Color Cosmetics Timeless Beauty Palette

Great face palettes can be difficult to find.  Many have limited shade options that lean toward only light skintones.  The Timeless Beauty Palette by City Color has a fantastic range of colors including four blushes and three highlighters.  The pigmentation and longevity of this palette are fantastic considering the price point.  Let's take a closer look.

The palette itself is gold with a sleek, secure design which includes a full mirror.  My palette in particular does not stay open with the mirror at a 90 degree angle.  I don't think this is the case with all of them, so perhaps the hinge on mine was just a bit too smooth/loose.  Basically it has to be held or laid flat, which is my only complaint about the packaging.

*Note - there is a bit of an overspray on the highlighters, so once used, they may appear darker in photos.

Inside the palette there are four blushes - apricot, medium pink, lavender and light pink.  The formula is very smooth but does get a bit messy if you pick up too much product.  I just use a light hand (especially with the apricot and medium pink) to minimize product fallout.  They apply and blend beautifully to provide a more natural or vibrant flush to the skin.  The apricot and light pink have an oh-so-subtle sheen to them, but no glitter or sparkle.  Overall, they are very wearable and suitable for multiple seasons and skintones.

Below the blushes are three highlighters - a bronze, pink and taupe.  They're really vibrant and can therefore be used as eyeshadows as well.  I find this trick to be helpful especially since the deepest shade is much too dark as a highlighter my light skin.  I love the gold paired with my bronzers, it gives a beautiful glow especially for the warmer months.  The pink coordinates with so many of my spring blushes.  I think that is my absolute favorite!  Lastly is the taupe, which for my light skin, serves as a fantastic everyday eyeshadow.  It really makes this palette a "one stop shop" on days I'm in a rush!  The pink and taupe are particularly soft and give almost a metallic look when swatched.

Please forgive the lack of space between colors, as I try to swatch above a scar :)
