Most Helpful Positive Review Easy to use, pigmented, beautiful neutrals palette
Happy Friday everyone! Today I'll be reviewing the new & beautiful White Russian eye & cheek palette from @buxomcosmetics that I received complimentary from @bzzagent in exchange for my honest opinions. This palette is a gorgeous neutrals based palette with matte, satin, shimmer, & sparkle finishes across 6 primer infused eyeshadows & two newly released wanderlust blush shades. The eyeshadows themselves are buttery, easy to apply & blend out well with little to no fallout for me. Each of the shadows are pigmented on my medium, neutral undertone complexion (swipe for swatches). The back of the box tells you how to create the iconic & stunning look featured on the front of the palette. I own a standalone wanderlust blush & love it so I was excited to see two included here with the same buttery smooth & pigmented formulation. Moscow is a matte pink blush while New York is more of a peach blush with subtle shimmer. What I love is the versatility of this product! It includes shades of eyeshadows that can be used for everyday looks or even create bolder, smoked out looks. In my cover photo I used the palette to recreate the look on the front of the palette & it's truly gorgeous! Depending on how you dress it up it or down I've paired this look with casual & more chic, dressy outfits. Did I mention it comes with a full size mirror? This retails for 39.00 & for 6 pigmented shadows & two blushes I have to say it's worth the cost for the high quality. I highly recommend this palette as it can be used proficiently by beginners & pros.
Most Helpful Critical Review Less than Ideal
The shadows and blushes were very chalky and not very pigmented at all. While blending, the shadows tend to separate. There is a decent amount of fallout as well, but due to the pigmentation being so faint, it doesn't create much of a mess on your face makeup which I guess can be seen as a pro to some. The formulation of the shadows and blushes really just weren't something I was impressed with. I definitely would not recommend this product, not even to someone who prefers the "no makeup" look. For the price, there are much better products out there.

This palette is beautiful! I love the tones and shades and the packaging is really pretty. The colors are super blendable and such a pretty color story. A nice mixture of mattes and shimmers. Definitely a beautiful palette for anyone
So easy to create

This palette is so easy to create and use. On the back of the palette it tells you step by step how to create a beautiful glam look. The blush is soft and pink.

This is my first pallet from buxom!! I got it complimentary from Bzzagennt! I am very impressed with how smooth it was when I applied it. Thought it was going to look cakey (thank god it didn't) and i didn't have to reapply that much throughout the day. I would just spray setting spray, and it looked good again! Fan!

Persh from San diego Ca
This is the most beautiful and complete palette , you have eye shadows and blush its like an everyday palette to have a little color and shimmer in your face
Mg575 from California
Buxom white russian is a convenient cheek and eye pallete to take anywhere. Love when there are two types of makeup in a pallete. I like the neutral colors. I was a little disappointed with the pigment (could just be my skin type and tone though). The colors are versatile enough for an everyday look or dramatic for an evening look.
I love it!!

Perfect pallet for my pale collection
Vionny from Florida
First when i saw it i fell in love the colors were gorgeously pigmented stayed on all day!
raqhernz from Los Angeles
I enjoyed this palette because it has 2 products in 1. The eyeshadows and blushes were pretty colors but most of the eyeshadows weren't shades I would normally use, that's the only reason why I give the palette four stars. All the shades were pigmented enough and there was minimal fallout. I trust the brand Buxom and believe it has high-quality products so I do recommend it.
This is a great combo you can use when traveling.
Fab at Fifty from LA burbs
Easy breezy - tuck this into your travel bag, and off you go! instead of bring multiple makeup items, you have a pretty set of a complete look with out the hassle of bringing 6-8 different items.
I love it
Amecrz from AZ

Ochoa1226 from Fort Smith,Ar
This palette is AMAZING !! The colors let you make a natural look or a little dramatic not much eye looks. The cheek colors are nice ! Not over barring soft packaging is nice as well
Nice colors and versatile
Dailywithyose from Florida
It is a very nice palette, with soft colors and you can create different looks; I love that it brings matte colors and satin colors. I like that it brings 2 options of blushes [Full size] (One matte and one semi-gloss). I liked the presentation of the boxe that it brings a look of what you could do. The outer packaging has a super smooth finish.
Not to die for
Nati from New York City
The palette is good. It has basic colors to use everyday.
What I LOVED: The blushes. Omg. They're *chef's kiss"
What I didn't love much: The pigmentation of the eye shadow. I feel that I have to use and layer it a lot for it to show up.
Perf nude palette
Estefania from Los Angeles
The packaging is simple and cute. Moving on; this palette is perfect for an everyday natural look. The White Russian palette has 2 blushes and 6 eyeshadows. It is hard for me to find a blush that suits my olive complexion because some are too pink or too dark. Both blushes are pretty, but the shade "New York" suits my complexion better. As for the eyeshadows, they are not patchy and very minimal fallout. Overall, if you like natural looks, I definitely recommend this palette.
The perfect nude palette to your collection

The packaging is cute. Moving on now; the White Russian palette has 2 blushes and 6 eyeshadows. The colors are perfect for an everyday natural look. So if you like natural looks, this is the palette.
I have trouble finding the right blush shade for my olive complexion, but the blush that compliments most my skin is "New York." The eyes does are not patchy and very minimal fallout. Overall, I definitely recommend the White Russian palette.
Love this palette
Christy from California
I love this palette. This is my first time trying buxom products and I can't wait to try more products from this brand. My fave colors in this palette are Reveal, Indulge and Smoke Show for the eyes and my fave blush shade is New York! I love how high pigmented they all are.
Low pigment, too many shimmers
A from N/A
The deep browns in this palette are full of glitter! The shade options left are barely there colors with almost no pigment. Blushes are good, but overall very disappointed!
Gata86 from USA
I love that this palette has different earth-is tones. I am not much of a bright pop colors person so this is perfect.
I like the way it goes on and is not cakey.
Cute but... from Texas
I really wanted to love this palette, colors are beautiful but for some reason some of the formulas were better than the others. I really would have loved a matte dark shade instead of the glittery brown, that one in particular was hard to blend. The blushes I loved! I dipped into both and they have a beautiful rosy flushed finish!
