If you read my last post, than you saw that I recently got this palette from my husband as a birthday gift. In my last post I gave you my first impressions on this palette.
I finally got the chance to play around a little bit with this palette to form my thoughts and give my opinion on what I think.
Is it worth it? Do you need it? Is it mind blowing? Or is it terrible?
So what I liked about this palette was the color scheme. (Besides the cute packaging) the colors are ones I really love and see myself using. As you know, I’m not a huge fan of Too Faced eyeshadow palettes. Love their blushes, mascara, lip products, etc. Eyeshadows are just kinda… meh, to me. I don’t hate them, I just feel there are other companies out there (that I own and love) that are better performance wise, color wise, and just overall better all around. Not to say Too Faced shadows are the worst, just not my favorite or ones I “need” to have, nor, do I gravitate to palettes I own currently.
With that said, from the three or so other Too Faced palettes I own… I’ve never had a problem with pigmentation, or performance (At least none have been as bad as the Kylie Cosmetics Holiday edition palette I own) Their shadows have always worked for me, so I was expecting similar results with this palette as well.
I found the shadows to be pigmented. Not crazy pigmented, I did have to dip my brush in a couple of times to build up the color I wanted. That wasn’t really an issue for me though, I do have some other high end shadows that require a little build up for the color I’m trying to achieve.
The shadows were easy to blend, didn’t become muddy or fade. They lasted a long time. I honestly didn’t have any problems with them. Overall, I was pleased with the look and performance of this palette.
This palette is small and would be very easy to travel with. It’s a perfect size and great if you’re on the go, or just need to slip in your makeup bag for any touch ups. I do find it cute and I like the convenience this palette offers.
Personally, I don’t think you need this palette. It’s not a “must” have, at least in my opinion. It’s cute and gets the job done, but so do many other palettes. If you’re a lover of Too Faced or like to collect their eyeshadow palettes, then I’d say go for it. It would look good in any makeup collection. I do like this palette, however, I don’t think you necessarily need it if it’s not in your budget, or price range, or if you’re on the fence about purchasing it. It’s a good palette… it just isn’t “wow” worthy, I guess? If you get what I mean.
My favorite colors from this palette are Bee’s Knees & Honey Brittle. Going Nuts was one I had to work with a little bit. It wasn’t as pigmented as I expected.
Do you guys own this palette or want to get it? If you do have it, what are your thoughts? Do you love it? Hate it? What are your favorite shades from this palette? Let me know!
