Happy Too Faced Tuesday! A couple weeks ago I finally caved and picked up the Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette because of all of the insane hype. I really didn’t need any more eye shadow palettes in my collection, but who can say no to something that smells like sweet peaches?!
The smell: I’ve heard mixed reviews about the smell of the palette (since it’s so strong) but I honestly think it smells amazing! Such a nice sweet peach scent (like peach candy), and I don’t smell it once it’s applied. You can definitely smell it when the palette is closed, though.
In my personal opinion, Too Faced shadows always need a primer. I personally use NARS pro prime eye primer because my eyelids are really oily. With this primer I get a good 8 hours of wear with these shadows without creasing.
My main issue with this palette are that some shadows are seriously amazing, and some are just okay. I wish that the quality was more consistent for the price. You do, however, get a lot of eyeshadow shades for the money. Some of the shadows are too dry/powdery to use and tend to sheer out too much when you blend. But others are super soft and buttery, and blend like a dream.
Check out some swatches below:
Overall, I think this product was way more hyped up than it needed to be. It’s a really unique idea, and I love the peach scent! The packaging is beautiful and really sturdy (it’s a metal palette which is great for traveling). I also love the combination of shimmer, matte and satin in the palette. I do think if you have similar shadows, this can definitely be a pass. I’ll keep it and continue to use the shades I love, but I don’t think it’s a necessity to add this to your collection.
I also purchased a Sweet Peach Creamy Lip Oil in the shade ‘Peach Tease.’ These are described as a whipped Peach Lip oil that shines like a gloss and moisturizes like a lip balm. It is by no means long wearing, but it is super moisturizing and smells/tastes fantastic! The color payoff is awesome as well. It feels super lightweight and not sticky at all. Now at $19 each, it’s a little over-priced in my opinion. Still worth checking out though!
What are your thoughts on this Sweet Peach collection? Do you think it was worth all the hype?
