GRAFTOBIAN High Definition Color Palette in Warm 2

Hey girls, so another HD make up I bought from Steph is the Graftobian High Definition Color Paletter in Warm 2. I decided to get the palette instead of the single pots since:

1) I was having a hard time choosing which color would be best for me
2) Getting 5 colors in a palette would be perfect to just mix and match for different clients
3) A little goes a long way, the palette will last me a long time

Formulated to yield flawless High Definition results whether or not you're in front of a camera.

Directions: Apply with white foam sponge wedge or makeup brush. Set with face powder.

The HD Cream is very very veryyyy pigmented! As you can see from the swatch the coverage is great! Mind you I used very very very little for the swatch. Also the consistency is like Cinema Secrets foundation. Smooth, silky and easy to spread. The only thing I noticed about this is it should be kept in a cool place otherwise oil settles on the surface of the product. But its pretty simple just put it in the fridge for a bit, take it out and store it back in your train case.

The swatches were done on my inner arm therefore it is at least 2 shades lighter than the shade on my face. So basing it from the swatch, Desert Sand and Golden Sunset are the closest shades to my face. So what I did was I mixed both colors together to see the outcome, and it seemed right. I couldn't swatch it on my face right then since I wasn't in the mood yet to put anything on my face.

There you can see Desert Sand and Golden Sunset mixed

I still have yet to see the different combination I can come up with using the 5 different shades. But it seems that the possibilities are endless. Weeeh! :) So later in the evening I had to go to a Christmas party, Perfect time to use my new products. Here's my FOTD using this palette.

Finally tried the Graftobian HD Pro Powder with this. I used it to set the foundation very very lightly since I didn't want heavy coverage and it was perfect!

Again you can get this palette at www.hdmakeup.multiply.com from Steph on hand! So yayyy! :)

Definitely worth it for 5 colors! Yayyy!

Toodles! :)


  1. Swatches look almost identical to cinema secrets kit #3 :)

  2. @Maui we should do a side by side comparison hehe

  3. I have the Graftobian palette too and I love it! :)

  4. hi caby! Can you reco a shade for nc30-35? I am looking at desert sand. What do you think? BTW, have you checked the online stores in US that sells various hd lines like joe blasco, temptu, rcma, yaby, etc etc..? It is quite cheap!

  5. @Maryjoyce I suggest mixing buttermilk and dessert sand since dessert sand is a little bit close to nc40 while buttermilk is like nc 30-ish. And yeah I have been to online stores that sell hd makeup. I''ve bought from a couple its love! :)

  6. The use of technology and internet has spread in every step of our day to day life. Eh last edition of such involvement of internet has been witnessed in money lending business.
