You guys! So, I said back in April that I probably wouldn’t be reviewing another Too Faced eyeshadow palette, after that whole experience with the Natural Love palette. I told myself I wasn’t going to purchase anymore Too Faced shadows, as I feel, from my own experience, they just don’t work so well… for me.
Yet, here we are again.
I saw this collection and I just had to have some things from it. One of those things was… the Just Peachy Mattes eyeshadow palette. When I tell you I sat for days, debating, going back and forth over buying this palette, that’s no lie.
When I also tell you I kept my Sephora receipt handy, expecting to return this palette… that’s also no lie.
What this is : “Just Peachy Mattes is infused with refreshing peach and sweet fig cream in our exclusive modern comfort matte formula for intense color payoff that’s beyond blendable. Create endless looks with 12 matte shades of warm peaches, buttery creams, and rich browns that smell and feel oh so good.”
*Reatils for $45 at Sephora and on the Too Faced website.*
I’m really into peach shades and I skipped the whole Too Faced Sweet Peach collection… but for some reason this one really jumped out at me. I don’t know exactly, what made me want this palette. The color scheme is gorgeous and right up my alley, so maybe that’s why. I’m more into shimmers and duo chrome shadows… we all know, I love my glitter and sparkle! 🙂 However, I do love a good matte.
I went into using this palette expecting the shadows to be dry, have no pigment, and just perform very poorly. What I got from this palette is the complete opposite!
First, let me just say this palette smells ah-mazing! You get that peachy, sweet, I don’t wanna say cream scent, but something like that. I can’t put my finger on the exact scent, but it smells like a yummy candy or something. Seriously so good!
These shadows were far from dry. They are creamy, buttery, and so blendable! So easy to work with… and the pigment… yes! The pigment is wonderful. The shadows blend out perfect, are not muddy, they just perform so well and create such beautiful looks. Literally, everything I was expecting this palette to be… is the opposite. It is such a good palette! The shadows have very little to no fall out!
I can’t tell you enough, how impressed I am with this palette. Me? Impressed with a Too Faced eyeshadow palette? I can’t remember the last time I was. That’s no shade towards Too Faced at all. I love their products, I just find their eyeshadows to not do it for me. This one, though? This one is excellent! I don’t know if they changed their formula… I don’t know what they did, but if they continued to make palettes like this one? My opinion on their eyeshadows would totally change.
I also picked up the Sweetie Pie Bronzer. I originally purchased it because it’s so cute! I know! I’ve used it twice so far, I really do enjoy it! I will say, it does kill me to mess this up. It’s so gorgeous… but I gotta push through and use this! I didn’t buy it to just sit there.
I think I’m going to purchase the Mattifying Setting Powder and the Matte Foundation next from this collection. I’ve been hearing such good things about them and I’d like to try them out.
Have you picked up anything from this collection? If so, what did you buy? Or what are you thinking of buying? Let me know!
Feel free to come say hello on my Instagram! I post almost daily… and give mini makeup reviews, etc. I’d love to connect with you over there! ThattgirlJenn (same name as here)
