There has been a lot of hype around this limited edition Too Faced palette. When it first came out in spring 2016, it sold out almost instantly. Too Faced announced they wouldn’t restock it again but here we are a few months later with the Sweet Peach palette out again and a couple of other peachy goodies on the market as well. I was lucky enough to get my hands on this palette when it first came out and I wanted to share my thoughts on it with you in case you were wondering if it’s worth the splurge or not.
Let’s start with the packaging! The 18 eyeshadows are packed in an ombre peach-embossed tin which looks absolutely adorable plus it’s very sleek and sturdy. It has a magnetic closure and it comes with a mirror inside which I think makes the palette very travel friendly. Inside there is a great variety of shades from pinks, corals and purple to browns and two black tones. I am very happy with the colour selection even though I was expecting more peach shades to be included.
The eyeshadows come in all sorts of finishes- matte, satin and shimmer and the best thing about them is that they all smell divine! Maybe not like actual peaches but more like a sweet flavoured candy. Trust me, you won’t be able to stop sniffing this palette every time you open it. The pigmentation of these shades is insane! They have such a nice buttery formula and they are so easy to apply and blend. I don’t find the eyeshadows to be chalky and there’s hardly any fallout when you put them on. Here are some swatches without any primer underneath:
|L-R: White Peach; Luscious; Just Peachy; Bless Her Heart; Tempting; Charmed, I’m Sure|
|L-R: Nectar; Cobbler; Candied Peach; Bellini; Peach Pit; Delectable|
|L-R: Peaches ‘N Cream; Georgia: Caramelized; Puree; Summer Yum; Talk Derby To Me|
This has rapidly become my favourite palette and I use it almost every single day. I tried to narrow it down to my top three shades but it was simply impossible so my top five are: Luscious; Bellini; Puree; Charmed, I’m Sure and Peach Pit. I definitely think this palette is a must-have in your collection if you are a beauty junkie. The Too Faced Sweet Peach palette retails for £39 and it’s worth every penny! Does it live up to the hype? Absolutely yes.
