Too Faced Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Collection!

Purchased by me

 

The elusive Limited Edition Too Faced Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Collection ($49) has finally become mine! I was beginning to think it might be urban legend. I had tried to purchase it from Ulta Beauty and it was sold out, from Too Faced online– it was sold out, from Sephora-sold out. I was finally able to score it from HSN at just the right time. I know blogger friends that also tried HSN and you guessed it–sold out only minutes after I purchased it. Was it worth the wait? Read on!

You may notice the pan that look almost empty–that is Tempting and it had shattered in shipping and was ALL OVER EVERYTHING!  Seriously, I had to wipe it off the outer cardboard packaging, the tin palette itself, the corners, the closure and several of the other eye shadows. It was a frickin’ mess! I didn’t dare return it for fear I would NEVER get another, so I cleaned it up and moved on. It’s a good thing it was only a black shade of I would have pitched a fit.

On to better things–the palette! The Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Collection consists of 18 shades of peachy pinks, corals, bronzes, and pops of purples that will have you looking summer-fresh year-round. The mix of matte and shimmer is perfect and I love the gentle peach scent! Also included is a Glamour Guide with three looks for inspiration.

Shades are:

  • White Peach – a satin creamy white
  • Luscious – gorgeous shimmery peachy gold
  • Nectar – matte pale peach
  • Cobbler – shimmey rosy bronze
  • Peaches n’Cream – matte beige with icy peach undertone
  • Georgia – matte ballerina pink with beige undertone
  • Just Peachy – matte salmon pink
  • Bless Her Heart – shimmery light olive
  • Tempting – matte black? dunno ‘cuz it was crushed
  • Charmed I’m Sure – matte mid-brown

Packaging is a darling and sturdy tin box with a mirror but no brush. If an when I ever finish the palette, I will ise it as a place to keep eyeliners. Outside packaging is a cute cardboard box. The shade names are written on the palette which I appreciate. For those of you worried about the scent, my palette was subtle though I will say more potent than the chocolate palettes. Still, the scent varies.

I have to say I am SO glad I persisted in pursuing Sweet Peach. I adore the peachy, pink and bronze shades. I am a bit confused about the two purple shades, I don’t see how they fit into the theme. I get Bless Her Heart (a lovely green) but purple? I would much have preferred a block of a peach blush wouldn’t that have been nice?

Too Faced surpassed themselves with this palette. I was underwhelmed with the Peanut Butter and Jelly palette but they have more than made up for it with Sweet Peach. All the shadows, even the matte shades are creamy and soft. The two shadows I had some trouble with were Delectable and Talk Derby To Me–both are a bit dry and applied slightly patchy. Wouldn’t you know, both of the purple shades that don’t coordinate with the rest anyway. I will say, it you are truly a cool toned girly, this may not be as much use to you as it should be. Most of the colors lean warm.

Truth be told, I don’t use mattes all that often but Sweet Peach is going to change that. My swatches are done without primer, though you may want to use one as the mattes tend to sheer out.

I love the way this look turned out. I used White Peach on the brow bone and inner corner, Luscious on the lid, Just Peachy in the crease, Caramelized on the outer corner and Summer Yum to line.

I was curious about Bless Her Heart, the green shade so I tried it out.  I used Peaches n’ Cream on the brow bone, Bless Her Heart on the lid, Delectable to line upper lashes and Talk Derby To Me to line lower lashes.

I’m delighted with Too Faced’s Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Collection. The quality, selection of shades and cute packaging has me giddy. I’m really enjoying creating looks with this palette. It does definitely have a lot of warm shades so if that doesn’t appeal to you, you might be better off with one of the chocolate palettes–the original Chocolate Bar is my favorite.

I hope Too Faced keeps up with the fruit theme, I would love to see a Fall palette with an apple theme–warm browns & greens and maybe a red blush. Or how about a mixed berry palette: strawberry, blueberry, raspberry? A harvest palette? What do you think?

Bottom Line: I’m glad I waited for Sweet Peach!

  11. Kira T says:

    I love these colors! They scream Spring!

  12. No wonder you never gave up, the shades suit you well. I feel bad for that black though, but if you don’t need it then that’s fine. I love the first look on you! I hope you do that more often.

  13. Just peachy and candied peach are gorgeous. Very pretty palette.

  14. marciaf says:

    They need to hire you to give them ideas! There are a few shades I’d love from this palette but in general it’s too warm for me. I like though that it’s a change from their other more neutral ones.

  15. A harvest palette! Sign me up for that one 🙂

  16. This is probably the most coveted palette from Too Faced 🙂 I didn’t get it, but it sure looks pretty!

  17. After nonstop site stalking, I managed to get one from my local Ulta. I wasn’t feeling well, but I sent the hubbs in to my local and he was able to nab it for me. 😀 I’m still in the admiration/keep it as a pet phase. (I do that with new makeup.) I need to get it photographed and start using it! lol

  18. FabZilla_Kath says:

    It’s a gorgeous palette. I’d freak out if I see the shattered e/s.

  22. Aleya Bamdad says:

    I want it. I want it bad. I don’t have a lot of the colors so there’s no reason that I shouldn’t get it….

  23. Very pretty shades indeed!

  24. Ryan Escat says:
