Ahh, I have such mixed feelings about this palette! As much as I love the Too Faced Sweet Peach eyeshadow palette (I raved about it here), I’m not sure I’ve fallen for this one. With Too Faced shouting left, right and centre about their new additions to the Sweet Peach range and with all the hype surrounding this collection I had really high hopes for this product. But does it really live up to its claims?
The palette retails for £34 and it comes with a bronzer, a blush and a highlighter which are meant to give your skin a radiant peachy glow. They are packed in a little ombre tin and it comes with a decent sized mirror. Too Faced got it right with the packaging and the peachy theme is more than obvious with the peach emoji in the corner, the blush that’s imprinted with a big peach, the bronzer and highlighter which have dotted peach imprints…oh and did I mention the product smells like peaches?
When I swatched these shades in the store I noticed how sheer the colours were and I had to sit there for about 30 minutes to convince myself to buy the palette and see how it works with brushes because when it comes to more expensive makeup I never really purchase something unless I’m 100% that it’s worth the money. The bronzer looked like a nice warm, peach toned shade that could be perfect for adding a sun kissed glow to the skin. The blush is a shimmery, peachy coral and finally the highlighter has a subtle, warm peach tone.
When you pick up product with your fingers all three shades seem fairly pigmented but when using a brush with this palette, it’s a completely different story. There’s no colour pay off and just to achieve a nice, subtle glow you really need to swirl that brush into the palette like there’s no tomorrow and build up the products on your face. Their texture is quite firm in the pan and another issues that I have with these shades is the longevity. All three seem to fade after a couple of hours and the biggest fail is the bronzer with barely any pigmentation. I have quite a pale complexion, and I’m talking about NC15-20 pale, and I still can’t seem to make this bronzer visible on my face.
If you’re going into purchasing this thinking that it’s a great all in one face palette you will be quite disappointed. Many people thought it would be suitable for contouring but that’s not the case. The most you can get from it is a subtle definition. And I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone who has a medium to dark skin.
