Unless you have been living under a rock, you’ve probably been eyeing up the Too Faced Sweet Peach 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 for a wide range of spring/summer looks.
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 and positive 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 really 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. The photos above show each colour after a few brushes on the skin and as you can see some have a really lovely finish. My current favourites are: ‘nectar’, ‘peaches n cream’, ‘caramelized’ and ‘bless her heart’. I find that these have been working really well on a day-to-day basis. However I have used some of the darker colours for evening events such as a date night with Edd or a family meal. 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 looks and the shadows last much longer than any others that I have used. I love the range of colours and the palette has been a lovely addition to my collection. Personally I wish that the palette did come with a brush but it just gave me an added excuse to treat myself to some new eyeshadow brushes as well. I’m excited to continue playing around with the different shades in the future. It’s also made me really keen in trying any other Too Faced products too.
