Good! At last, a palette that’s very well worth the money – at £19.50, the Cafe palette, based on coffee shades (explain the green Zoeva!) is such good value. Compared to other cardboard fit palettes, it’s easily equaling, if not bettering, the quality I’ve seen recently. I will add though that all their other similar sized palettes are £17.50 and I don’t see what’s different about this one for the £2 hike.
There’s a mix of matte and metallic in the palette and I absolutely love Nuanced History, the pinky/buff shade in the bottom left of the palette and I’ve worked out the green! It’s taken from ‘coffee cherries’ – red when ripe, green like the palette shade when unripe. They’re basically the beans before they’re ready.
The swatches from bottom to top are: Microfoam, Distinct Experience, No Added Spice, Tasting Note, Herringasse, Nuanced History, Micro Roasting, Cup of Joy, Talk Write Read, Shine Bright. I guess you would say that the colour selection is next level neutrals – some strong, some soft and plenty to accentuate. I really like this palette – it hasn’t launched yet but I’ll try and flag when it does.
