The thing that first attracted me to Too Faced products was the packaging, it is so imaginative and girly and impossible to resist. The soon to be launched Too Faced Sweet Peach palette is no exception – it is the ‘alter ego’ of the Chocolate Bar palette! It is unashamedly sweet and has a peach scent as the name would suggest, this is all I can smell when I open the drawer of my make up box! It would be a mistake, however, to think this palette is all about the packaging, the eye shadows inside are a delight! It is a treasure trove of imaginative, bright and cheery colours. This palette certainly offers something different, even for seasoned eye shadow collectors. There is a definite focus on summer shades with pale gold and bronzes and a variety of pinks. The texture of the eyeshadows is smooth and they apply extremely well. I was particularly impressed with the depth of the metallic colours in this palette, especially ‘Lucious’ and ‘Nectar’. I have swatched my favourite shades below with the metallics at either end, but the photo just doesn’t do them justice.
I particularly like ‘Talk Derby To Me’ which is a sparkly dark purple (it looks almost Black against my pale skin in the photo!) and would be great for creating a smokey evening eye with a difference. ‘Luscious’ is a great pale bronze lid colour as is ‘Candied Peach’ which could add a wash of glittery pink to the lid or blended higher into the crease. But as well as the eye catching, bold colours Too Faced haven’t been afraid to include some very useful transition colours like ‘Charmed I’m Sure’ and ‘Puree’ along with some staples like ‘Peaches ‘n’ Cream’ and ‘Tempting’.
The array of colours is very inspiring, however, should you need any further ideas Too Faced have included a handy little booklet with three step-by-step looks for you to recreate and experiment with. I particularly like this little addition as eye shadows palettes can sometimes be a daunting place for anyone in the early stages of developing their make up skills and any help is welcome! But don’t forget to experiment and find your own style with this palette, there are endless options and you can have hours of fun!
The Too Faced Sweet Peach palette launches in May 2016 priced at £39.00. Make sure you get your hands on one, you won’t be disappointed!
