Even though it has been out for quite a while now, I finally got around to picking up the Too Faced Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Collection Palette ($59 CAD). The palette itself was originally released back in early 2016, and I somehow managed to miss it completely. It was re-released a few months ago as part of a larger collection and by that time I didn’t feel the need to rush out and purchase it first thing.
The Too Faced Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Collection Palette follows the format of the brand’s very popular Chocolate Bar palettes. It contains 18 different shades, in a mix of both matte and shimmer finishes. This palette, like the Chocolate Bar palettes smell like chocolate, smells like peaches. Surprisingly what I thought would be an overly sweet and cloying smell is actually pretty pleasant and not overpowering at all.
As you can see from the photo, the first row contains three shimmer and three matte shades. If the shades were on their own, I probably would have skipped both White Peach, Luscious and Just Peachy. Not because they aren’t nice shades, they just don’t happen to be my cup of tea. Bless Her Heart is my hands down favourite shade in this row. It is such a gorgeous colour and is absolutely brown girl friendly.
The second row of shadow in the Too Faced Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Collection Palette is probably my favourite. Despite my love for warm shadows, I don’t really own any other shadows that are quite like these ones. It’s interesting to note that the last two shades, which look kind of purple in the picture, don’t actually show up as purple on my skin.
Out of all three rows in The Too Faced Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Collection Palette this last row has to be my least favourite. Nothing about any of the shades stands out even remotely. It’s just so blah! Don’t get me wrong; it’s not so bad, but I feel like I own a million shadows in these shades already.
While not a bad palette, I was expecting a lot more from The Too Faced Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Collection Palette. For one, I expected it to contain more ‘peach’ shades instead of just smelling like peaches. When it’s all said and done, while it’s nice to own this palette, you can certainly do without it because there is certainly nothing earth shattering about it.
