The Pretty Rebel Eye Shadow Palette comes in an extraordinary range of 10 new shades in stunning, high pigment formulations for rich color payoff. Pretty Rebel comes with our signature how-to Glamour Guide with three beauty looks to get you started.
PACKAGING – I really like the packaging of this one. The combination of black and gold was definitely not tacky. It was very put together. The black ribbons (not really sure what they are, if they are ribbons or straps) overlapping each other, totally signifies the ‘Rebel’ side of the palette. The palette also comes with decent-sized mirror allowing you to see at least half of your face while doing your eye makeup. It has a magnetic closure, similar to UD Naked/Lorac Pro‘s. The box’s design is also similar to the palette’s. It also came with an instructional guide on how to achieve certain looks (3 looks) using the said palette.
COLOR PAYOFF/PIGMENTATION – ‘Too Faced Pretty Rebel LE Eyeshadow palette’ is consists of 10 new shades. Three are metallic, two are matte, two are shimmery, the other two are frosty and the last one is a satin, pearly finish.
• Dainty (Matte finish)
• Charming (Matte finish)
• Girly (Duochrome/iridescent, metallic finish)
• Totally Fetch (Satin, pearly finish)
• Miss Sparkles (Shimmery/sparkly finish)
• Ringleader (Frosty finish)
• Gangsta (Frosty finish)
• Instigator (Metallic finish)
• Badass (Shimmery/sparkly finish)
• Jailbird (Metallic finish)
All of these shades have an amazing color pay off and they’re ridiculously pigmented as well. Each color is true to the pan and they’re very buildable to your preferred intensity. Among all of these, my favorites are Girly (which is a very beautiful metallic, duo-chrome finish, perfect combo of brown & green), Totally Fetch (a fuchsia pink color, reminds me of Mean Girls – of course!), Instigator (more yellow-toned gold than ‘Half-Baked’ from Urban Decay Naked & ‘Gold’ from Lorac Pro), Badass (blue shimmery/sparkly finish with fine, silver specs) and Jailbird (a true silver color, reminds me of a silver spray paint when swatched, because it’s THAT pigmented). You guys know that I love my neutral palettes, however, these colors are just AH-MAZE-BALLS! All of these shades are a perfect match for each other and not even one of them are out of place. Whoever thought of putting all of these colors together is a genius! (probably a ‘Pretty Rebel’ too if I may say so, lol).
FORMULATION/TEXTURE – These babies have the creamiest texture. They glide on like butter and they’re very easy to apply/blend. Since they’re so pigmented, a little of them goes a long way, especially the shimmery & the metallic ones, so they’re a bit prone to fall-outs (not that major though). Just remember to tap your brush off the excess so you wont end up with fall-outs all over your cheeks.
PERFORMANCE/LONGEVITY – As mentioned, they’re only prone to fall-outs since they’re heavily pigmented. But you’ll only encounter that in a few shades, (like Jailbird & Miss Sparkles) it’s not really a major issue for me, since sometimes I myself forget to tap my brush and I dont’ see those fall-outs that often. And as previously mentioned, they were very easy to apply & blend. They were not powdery nor chalky. The consistency of these eyeshadows are just amazing. On bare lids, these eyeshadows lasted on me for six hours but with a primer, they lasted me for over eight hours, nearly the entire day, without creasing or fading.

I love it! I don’t know how else am I going to say it. It’s uber pigmented and it’s something I don’t mind having even though I have tons of neutral palettes. The nice pop of color (Totally Fetch, Badass & Jailbird) was genius. Every color goes together with this palette. You can never go wrong.
If you are into neutral shades, but you’re looking for a good hint of color (particularly jewel-toned), then this is for you. I don’t regret buying this at all. I know that I already have Naked & Lorac Pro, but this is really different from all of the palettes I own. It’s a good balance between day and night shades. It’s the perfect palette for those who want something that they can wear on a daily basis, but can also accommodate their after hour events.

Overall, I really REALLY love this palette. If you’re into neutral and jewel-toned shades, then this is for you. Like I said, they’re really pigmented and they’re worth checking out. I hope that you find this post helpful and if you have any questions, then please let me know.
