Well, what do we have here. The most raved and talked about eyeshadow palette of this season, the Too Faced Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Palette. There's no way that you haven't heard of this peachy-scented palette if you're a makeup lover, Too faced has also lauched peachy scented blush and lip gloss to the Sweet Peach collection. Well here's my two cents on this much hyped Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Palette. A little heads up, I am so not sold on this peachy scented gimmick, and here's why...
Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette
Just Another Overrated Eye Shadow Palette ? (review)
|Swatches of the Too Faced Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Palette (min 3 layers for each shade)|
For me, I have had heard a lot of people talking about this Sweet Peach palette and it took me a while before I decided to head down to Sephora to get myself one of this overly hyped palettes. So the excitement was incredibly high. But as soon as I played with the shades, I noticed the pigmentation was not the same as I would expect all mapped out in my mind. The colours are very pale especially those matte shades and it doesn't feel as creamy as a high-end makeup palette should be.
I don't expect all the shades to be a hit but at least I expect those pink Peachy shades like "Just Peachy" and "Candied Peach" to be on point since it's a Peach palette after all. Both the shades are very powdery not creamy and the colour is so pale that I have to layer and layer just to make the colour visible on my lid. Needless to say about those even lighter shades like White Peach, Nectar, Peaches 'n Cream are barely there,
Aside from that, never have I had to deal with patchy eyeshadow unless it's from a cheaper makeup brand. As you can see from the swatches on my hand, the "Delectable" and "Talk Derby To Me" was so patchy that I could barely make a smooth swatch with it. So imagine how much time It would take to blending the shades on my lid.
Anyway, I created a simple eye makeup look using only the Sweet Peach palette shades. Even after all the "Just Peachy" & "Candied Peach" shades layering, that's all the colour that is showing on my eyes.
