Unless you have been living under a rock, you’ve probably been eyeing up the Too Faced Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette. I, like many others, caved and brought it and never looked back since. Here’s my review…
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Too Faced; they are a cruelty-free cosmetics company specialising in lovely packaged and good quality makeup. This was a limited edition eyeshadow palette and when I’ve looked over the internet it doesn’t seem to be available anymore, however, if you head to your local counter they might be lucky enough to still have it. The palette is made of eighteen shades which I have been using separately or blending a couple of shades together.
One of the first things I noticed about the palette, other than the gorgeous packaging, is the scent of the eyeshadows themselves. The shades are infused with the juicy scent and antioxidant-rich essence of peach. As soon as you open the palette the scent wafts into the air that immediately puts me in a happy mood. Too Faced believe in the fact that makeup is so much more than applying a number of different colours to your skin. “It’s a mood booster and powerful ally.” The names of the shades are individual and inspired by summer and peaches, for example: candied peach, just peachy, summer yum and bellini. The colour range is unusual to any other palette that I own. It has a lovely mix of lights and darks, shimmers and mattes. They are also really good at blending to create the perfect smokey eye for any occasion.
The pigment is stronger on the darker shadows, however, that may just be my skin tone that makes working with the lighter tones a bit more difficult. The texture of the shadows are lovely. They aren’t chalky and don’t go everywhere like some of the Urban Decay shadows that I’ve used in the past. I’ve been using nectar, peaches n cream, caramelized and bless her heart on a regular day-to-day basis and I’ve opted for some of the darker colours for evening occasions. The eyeshadows aren’t tough to remove with a makeup wipe which makes me wonder how they are going to perform on a Summer holiday.
Overall, I love Too Faced’s Sweet Peach palette and think it is really good value for the money. I have loved experimenting with different colours and textures and I believe it is a lovely addition to my collection. Personally, I wish the palette came with a brush but it did give me an excuse to treat myself to some new makeup brushes as well. I’m definitely interested in trying more of the Too Faced makeup range too so if you have any recommendations on what I should try next then please leave me a comment.
