Christen Dominique, beauty influencer and YouTuber, is the CEO and Creative Director of Dominique Cosmetics. She started her brand after several years of being a part of the beauty YouTube community and lots of beauty knowledge she already had from her freelance MUA career before YouTube.
“I wanted to create a brand that put the transformative power of makeup in your hands. I thought back to my freelance days, remembering the need for products that could be multi-purposed. I factored in the most helpful pan sizes, the shades and formulas that were missing from the current market, and even the packaging was designed to bring an experience to life, and make you feel something. I wanted you to have access to the most prestigious, innovative products without breaking the bank. With lots of time, research, and even more love, Dominique Cosmetics was born.”– Christen Dominique about Dominique Cosmetics.
The Dominique Cosmetics The Latte Palette is designed to work for all skin tones, eye colors, and makeup artistry skills. It supposed to be easy to work with, blendable, and buildable palette. I’ve put those claims to the test and swatched, used, and played around with The Latte Palette. Now I got a full impression of the palette, I’m ready to share my thoughts.
Dominique Cosmetics The Latte Palette
The Latte Palette features ten shadows, five warm tone neutrals, two fun pops of color, and three foils to finish off the look. The palette retails for $42. The shades in this palette all have coffee-inspired names:
• Hazelnut: Matte warm brown with a red undertone
• Caramel: Matte light taupe with a cool undertone
• Vanilla Crème: Matte muted yellow
• Mocha: Matte chocolate brown
• Pumpkin Spice: Matte rustic muted orange with red undertones
• Espresso: Foil brown with gold flecks
• Macchiato: Foil Champagne with gold flecks
• Crème Brulee: Foil copper rose gold
• Cold Brew: Matte deep teal
• Double Shot: Matte purple with red undertones
The palette is cruelty-free and paraben-free.
The Latte Palette Swatches
The first thing I noticed, was the softness of the shadows. All the shades really feel buttery soft and are very pigmented. The only shade that needed a little bit of help was Creme Brulee, which I felt like I needed to go through a first layer before I got the payoff I got with the other shades. After I was through that first layer, I didn’t any pigmentation problems anymore.
Sometimes when shades are very soft, they’re also very powdery (think of Anastasia Beverly Hills palettes). That’s not the case with these shadows. I barely had any kickback in the pan and no fallout on the face. Besides that, all the shadows are very easy to apply and blendable. I personally really liked how these shadows performed, swatched on the arm as well as on the actual eye lids.
I can see how this is a very universal palette, it could be worn by several skin tones as well as eye colors. Moreover, the palette has a nice variety of colors in it as well and I like the pops of color. They’re not too bright and still fit the neutral vibes of this palette, but still, give you a little bit extra if needed!
Another thing I appreciate about this palette is the beginner friendliness. If you’re just starting with eyeshadow, this palette is going to be your best friend. But that doesn’t mean only beginners can use it, because I think a lot of MUA’s and everyone in between is going to love this palette too.
If you’re looking for a good, easy to work with, neutral eyeshadow palette with the right amount of mattes, foils, and pop of colors then I would recommend getting this one for sure!
