When I first saw this palette I knew I was going to have to make it mine. Too Faced does this to me all too often. I’m sure I didn’t need another palette to add to my collection, but just look how cute it is! And it smells like peaches! I don’t have too many peachy shadows in my stash. Or at least that’s what I tell myself.

The Too Faced Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Palette contains 18 eyeshadows. It’s a beautiful combination of peachy pinks, corals, bronzes, and purples. I absolutely love the corals! I don’t usually wear a lot of coral on my eyes, but it’s such a fun shade to experiment with. The shadows were nicely pigmented. I did have to swipe a few times for some of the swatches, but they built up nicely. They applied and blended beautifully. I did have issues with some of the darker shades. You can probably tell from the swatches alone. I mostly use those on my lower lash line so for me it’s really no big deal. But if you’re planning on using them on your lid or in your crease you might have a hard time blending those bad boys out. Delectable is actually much nicer on the lid than in the swatch. I’ll have to use it in a look later this week to show you what I mean.

Here’s a look I created with the Too Faced Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Palette. I definitely plan to post a few more later on. Also, please pardon my bare nails. I’ve been doing some baking this week and I never paint my nails when I plan to bake. I always feel naked when I post swatches with bare nails. Oops?

I have to admit that I mostly bought this for the packaging. Pink. Hearts. Yeah, it just had my name written all over it. That and I love the chocolate bar palettes. Even though they’re all fairly similar. I probably could have skipped this one and wouldn’t have missed much, but it’s just so darn cute!

This palette contains some really nice neutrals with a few brighter shades in both matte and shimmer finishes. I like that this palette contains a few more colorful shades. The Totally Fetch shade isn’t as nice as the one from my Pretty Rebel palette. The Pretty Rebel version was so buttery smooth and pigmented. This one is on the chalkier side and not nearly as pigmented. It looks much nicer and more pigmented over primer, but with the Pretty Rebel version I didn’t have to work so hard to achieve such results. The rest of the shadows were really nice though. Not that Totally Fetch isn’t nice. It’s just not AS nice as the Pretty Rebel version.

You can see a look I created with this beauty below.

I purchased this beautiful palette around the same time I moved. I ended up digging into it before I got around to taking proper pictures so please excuse me. I really hate doing that, but sometimes I really can’t contain myself. Oops?

What’s not to love about this palette? First of all, it smells heavenly! It smells like sweet, delicious cocoa. I can’t help but smell it whenever I open it. Is that weird? Well, it smells darn good!

The shadows are nicely pigmented. They applied and blended nicely. I had some problems with the first chocolate bar palette, but I didn’t have any issues with this one. Well, my only real issue was with the Blueberry Swirl shade. I was really hoping for a more vibrant blue. Something that would just POP out of all those neutrals. But instead it just sort of blended in. Aside from that it really is perfection. Or close to perfection at least. And it’s just so darn cute! I really do love whole chocolate bar theme.

Below you can see a look I created with this palette. I really think it produces the most perfect neutral look. And you can see what I mean about Blueberry Swirl just sort of blending in. I have it applied on my lower lash line. It sort of looks like a gunmetal grey rather than a blueberry anything.

Overall I really do love this palette. It definitely met my expectations and then some. I even kind of dig the Pink Sugar shade that no one else seemed to care for. While I agree it could be more pigmented, I kind of think the name fits. Pink Sugar doesn’t exactly sound like a vibrant pink shade (to me anyway). It seems like it would be sheer and glittery. Well done, Too Faced! Well done!
