After trying out the Ace Beaute Floral Vintage Eyeshadow Palette, and now the Falling for You Eyeshadow Palette, I can definitely say their formula is one of my favorites. This beautiful fall palette is usually $35.00 but I found it on Mercari for $10.00, an absolute steal.
The Falling for You Palette contains twelve shades: four metallics and eight mattes. The packaging is sturdy cardboard with a magnetic closure and a full mirror. With the basic info out of the way, let’s talk pros and cons!
- This color story is fall in a palette but of course, you could use it year-round. I could see the red toned and yellow shades being gorgeous in the summer while the pinks and purples would be stunning in the winter.
- This is a primarily matte palette and luckily, the matte formula is great. Every shade is blendable and creates very little fallout. Some of the brighter colors may look intimidating but they’re easy to work with. At this time, Ace Beaute makes my favorite matte formula.
- The metallics are gorgeous, especially Cider and Spice.
- I love the theme and packaging for this palette so much.
- The metallics aren’t the easiest to work with. They’re hard pressed and have an almost sticky feel to them. They apply best when used with a finger and I don’t love that. The gold shade, Cider, also created quite a bit of fallout.
- The matte shades, Pumpkin Pie and Autumn, are way too similar once blended out.

I created three looks using this palette. I almost always use an eyeshadow primer and set it with powder. I really don’t have much to say about each individual look because I like them all so I’ll just jump into the step by step process.
- I blended Squash above and lightly into my crease.
- I blended Autumn into my crease and onto the outermost part of my lid.

If you are curious about any of the other products on my face, you can find these looks in my recent posts on Instagram.
I really love this palette but I don’t think it’s worth the full $35.00 price tag. If you’re interested in it, check Mercari or wait for a sale. What do you think about this color story? Let me know! Thanks for reading and have a great day!
