As a neutral lover, the Dose of Colors Baked Browns palette caught my attention quickly and ended up in my shopping cart during their Black Friday sale. In today’s post, I’m going to share my thoughts on this palette. Is it a hit or a miss? Let’s find out together!
I have been wanting to buy Dose of Colors products for a while now but for some reason, I’ve been holding off. I knew that Black Friday would be my moment to buy a couple of products to try. I made my list of products I really wanted and got them during their sale.
I actually bought the Dose of Colors foundation since Kelly (GlamByKelly) has been raving about that one and I bought the Marvelous Mauves palette because of a post I saw on The Newbury Girl. I trust both lovely women so I got these items. However, as a neutral lover, I couldn’t pass on the Dose of Colors Baked Browns palette and so here we are today!
Dose of Colors creates cruelty-free cosmetics that are user-friendly, functional and always on-trend. They’re determined to bridge the gap between artistry, efficacy and comfort one product at a time.
Dose of Colors Baked Browns Palette
The Dose of Colors Baked Browns palette contains 5 matte shades for a variety of beautiful sultry smokey to everyday neutral eye looks. The shades included in this palette are described as the following:
- Tea Light – Off white
- Deserted – Sandy Caramel Beige
- Outdoorsy – Tawny peachy brown
- Cherrywood – Reddish rusty brown
- Rock Bottom – Chocolate Brown
The Baked Browns palette is available on their website and retails for $32. Moreover, the palette is cruelty-free, talc-free, and paraben-free.
Dose of Colors Baked Browns Swatches
The formula of these shades feels very soft, almost buttery. It’s a very smooth and pigmented formula as well. I had no problem picking up the product on my finger or my brush. The shades swatched beautifully on the arm as well as performed very well on the eyes.
I noticed that the Dose of Colors Baked Browns palette does have kickback in the pan. The formula is pretty powdery and you’ll definitely notice this when you put your brush or finger into the palette. However, with tapping of the brush, I didn’t have fallout on the face.
Since the formula is so soft and pigmented, I think it’s also more powdery. However, I don’t really mind it being more powdery. I feel like this is pretty similar to what I experience when using an Anastasia Beverly Hills palette. The palette is slightly more powdery than the average palette but it does have some great payoff. It is worth the mention though, because if you don’t like powdery palettes then I won’t recommend this one.
The shades are super easy to blend, are pigmented, smooth and great looking! I actually really like this palette and I love using it as my go-to daily neutral palette.
I felt the need to check if the prices for the Dose of Colors Baked Browns Palette is similar to other brands or not. I choose KKW Beauty and Natasha Denona to compare them with since they both have 5 pan palettes too.
- Dose of Colors – $32 : 5 pans = $6,4 per 1.7g/0.06 oz.
- KKW Beauty – $25 : 5 pans = $5 per 0.90g/0.03 oz.
- Natasha Denona – $48 : 5 pans = $9.6 per 2.5 g/0.08 oz
In fact, I actually think the KKW Beauty palette is overpriced but that’s another discussion lol. As I compare these three, I think the Dose of Colors Baked Browns palette is fairly priced.
Overall. I’m glad I’ve bought this palette. The quality is what I’ve expected and I love using it. I do miss my metallics shades a bit but on the days I prefer a matte look, this palette is everything!
What are your thoughts on this palette? I’d love to know!
A lovely review, I’m a sucker for matte brown shades!
Thanks for sharing
Thank you so much, Katelyn!
I agree that the Dose formula in these palettes is def powdery and produces kickback in the pan (and fallout on the face), but I don’t mind given how easy these shadows add to apply.
I’m curious – do you have the friendcation palette? I wonder if the matte formula is different bc it is different from the formula in the iluvsarahii palette
I don’t have the Friendcation palette sadly, have been thinking of purchasing it for at least 100 times lol but I didn’t. I don’t have the iluvsarahii palette either, is this one less powdery than this formula?
Yes it is! Very very different formula!
This palette is stunning. I love brown shades for eye shadows as they work well for every occasion and they are perfect for every day. I just bought Huda beauty Obsessions mini Topaz palette as it has wearable shades for every day. xx
Ooooh, I love that Huda Beauty Obsessions palette! Hope you’ll enjoy it! xx
I worry about the ingredients in this palette. I went to purchase it but looked at the ingredients list and the yellow and red dyes in it are flags for cancer. I really love the shades in this particular palette , but will have to pass for health reasons.
I wish our products were better regulated in the USA.
