Review of the Dominique Cosmetics Rustic Glam Palette

Something I’ve been wearing every day for the last week is Dominique Cosmetics Rustic Glam palette, I was going to do a week in makeup using this palette then my skin and eye were driving me crazy… so instead I’m just going to do an old fashion review rather than the looks I created using this palette. The Rustic Glam palette is the newest eyeshadow palette released by Dominique Cosmetics that retails for $44 USD and contains twelve shades.


The packaging of Dominique Cosmetics Rustic Glam palette is similar to her other palettes, specifically the Berries and Cream Palette. It’s slim with a very pretty design on the outside. It is rather large compared to most palettes due to the length. So it’s not something that’s easy to put into a makeup bag or on the go. I don’t have issues storing this as I keep my eyeshadow palettes sitting upright in a bin, but if you use just a makeup bag it might be too long.

The palette itself is made from hard cardboard and includes a mirror on the inside the length of the palette.


This palette while colorful is rather neutral as the colorful or more bold shades are muted. Basically if I think of a Tarte Cosmetics palette when they do a colorful palette. Not that it’s a bad thing, as I’ve had fun creating every day makeup looks using this palette. The shades in the palette are:

  • Fringe – Cool toned matte beige
  • Evil Eye – Matte vibrant blue
  • Free Spirit – Cream matte
  • Cactus – Muted matte green
  • Dream Catcher – Baby Blue Shimmer with Blue Flecks
  • Wildflower – Muted pink matte
  • Suede – Matte orange brown
  • Bohemian – Copper bronze Foi
  • Desert Queen – Matte muted orange
  • Wanderlust – Champagne gold foil with a green undertone
  • Moon Child – Black Shimmer with Blue Flecks
  • Gypsy – Purple foil with silver flecks


I love the matte formula from Dominique Cosmetics. The shades have good pigmentation and blend nicely on the lids. You can also build up the shades instead of going all in at once if that’s how you enjoy applying your makeup.

There is some kickback in the palette but I don’t have any fallout on the cheeks from the matte shades and most of the shimmer/metallic shades. The only shade I had issues when it came to fallout was the shade Moon Child if I apply it with a packing brush. If I apply it with my finger, I do not experience this issue.


I can wear these shadows all day long without creasing or fading even when I don’t use an eye primer. As I did several days when I was wearing this palette, but they do perform better when applied over a concealer or primer. The longest I wore the shadows before it started to wear and/or I just took off my makeup was ten hours. I could’ve pushed it further, but that was as long as I was in the mood to wear makeup on any of the days I’ve worn the palette.


Love ya,

    Those colors look amazing, not your typical palette in that it focused more on brights and less on neutrals 🙂

      Yes, more focus on color than neutrals without being a typical rainbow palette.

    These colors are stunning, I’d love to try the DC palettes one day.

    I can’t help but notice that you’ve taken the exact same content structure & headings that I’ve been using in my eyeshadow palette reviews for the last 2 years, including the “pigmentation fallout & blend” heading. Is this a coincidence or not? I’ve never seen anyone else format there reviews in the exact way that I do so it’s a little shocking to me reading this post.

      I love the matte formula from DC.

      Wanted to do something different with reviews, so I started doing it to organize my thoughts more when I’m writing out reviews. Totally just realized you also do that, must’ve been unconscious (in the back of my mind from reading your blog) as I didn’t mean to copy your formatting. I can switch it up in the future.

        They’re definitely on my list! I think I want the latte palette first 🙂

        I totally get wanting to switch things up! I love your blog and reading your reviews, and I get how that can happen when we’re reading other blogs all the time lol. Thank you for understanding! x

        Latte is probably my favorite of the DC palettes.

        Thank you for understanding. Again I’m so sorry about that, totally didn’t mean to do that!
