Too Faced Sweet Peach Limited Edition Eye Shadow Palette Review, Swatches & Giveaway

You are looking at THE MOST WANTED eye shadow palette of the moment! (Nearly) everybody and their greedy-greedy grandma (LOL...JK) wants The Limited Edition Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette! It took me four times to get mine and the one's I'm giving away! It sold out on Too Faced TWICE! It sold out on HSN (home shopping network)! It sold out online at Ulta (that's where I purchased mine). It sold out on Macy's website! It sold out on Sephora's website! Now they're delivering the palette to stores! To the best of my knowledge, it will be at Sephora April 15th, Ulta April 7th (some have lucked up, got a manager and they let them have it early) and Macy's May 15th (don't quote me on the Macy's date but it was in my notes) (Those dates are for IN STORE ONLY; Not sure about anymore online releases). When I received my palette, the first thing I wanted to do was smell it! The peach scent is more like a piece of hard candy peach scent, than an authentic juicy real peach. It still smells nice, but I just want you to know. The outside packaging and eye shadow casing have an ombre effect :) It's very pretty. It goes from a light pink to a rich peachy tone. I used primer on the back of my hands to swatch the shades and I have to give Too Faced credit ... The pigmentation is awesome (just ONE SWIPE for each color on my hand below). The colors are very earthy! There are a lot of browns, bronzes, golds, (and of course) peach tones. You're also given a white, green & purple shade. The purple, Talk Derby To Me is so deep it looks navy (at least on me). Just Peachy looks pink on my hands, but it's really iridescent (showing luminous colors that seem to change when seen from different angles)! It's pink, peach & yellow :) I love all the shades! I'm a neutral girl! This seems more like a Fall/Winter palette than a Spring/Summer one. So I see myself using this more later in the year. It has a working mirror and glamour guide to get you started. What stopped it from a Supersweet rating? All the shades are GORGEOUS, but when you look at the uniqueness of the colors that's where it falters. Some are, but many aren't in my opinion. What will Too Faced think of next? I purchased THREE of these! One for myself. One for a lucky reader of A Very Sweet Blog (use the rafflecopter widget below to enter - open worldwide - good luck everybody), and I purchased one as a Sweet Surprise for a long-time reader.

A Sweet Surprise! I want to award a Sweet Surprise (Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette) to Desle of Diva Desle Blog. Desle is a theatre actress and beauty blogger from Cape Town, South Africa. Her blog just turned four and it's a fun assortment of all types of beauty product reviews. I've always admired Desle's imaginative spirit & creativity. Her nail designs are the absolute cutest and she loves trying beauty products from around the world! I love her diversity! Desle and I share a love for Too Faced products (especially eye shadow palettes). Even though she is MUCH BETTER with eye shadow than I am. She always creates fabulous looks. I appreciate her sincerity. She communicates with bloggers on social media. She sent me the sweetest post card. We're always communicating on Snapchat. The other day, she was having car problems and had to take the bus BUT WHAT I ADMIRED was she made the best of the situation. Attitude and all! She will take a rainy day and bring sunshine into it. It's hard to get Too Faced products in SA, so I wanted to make sure she got this limited edition palette. So enjoy Desle and thank you for being a wonderful blogger & friend.  See other Sweet Surprises HERE. See all my Too Faced Reviews HERE.

I have heard so many good things about this palette but somehow I still can't see myself using it - I think it's the purple, green and pink shades that really put me off every time I see photos of it. There are so many lovely neutrals, and then those shades really break it up for me. But I hope the winner will enjoy it, and I hope you will too, Kim!

Shira said...

omg I've been dying to try this palette- the stunning colors, the packaging, all of it.... fingers crossed! :)

It's very pretty, but I honestly don't understand the madness... Their marketing team has some brilliant minds, seriously. x

Tanya Dufour said...

nerline said...

The pigmentation had me thinking, is this for reals? No wonder it is sold out everywhere. I love the packaging.

Mica said...

So good you managed to get such a highly demanded palette and give it a go Kim! The colours are really pigmented too, looks like it was worth the hype! :)

Good luck to everyone entering the competition! I'm sitting this one out as it will be a while before I have time to wear makeup again, ha! :)

I've been so excited for this review ever since I saw on Snapchat that you got it! That's so nice of you to spread the love, too. I tried to get this several times, but I did not have any luck with that. I still want to get it, but I'm okay with waiting now. lol


This looks like a palette that I actually NEED Kim, wow. The colours are also ones that I love, aside from the pale Georgis pink, and how sweet of you to do a sweet surprises. Congrats to Desle. <3 Hope your week is going well, finally catching up with blogs. :)

From the bottom of my heart thank you so so so much!!!! I really appreciate it. You got me crying. Sending you tons of love. Xxxxxx

aki! said...

Kim, this looks absolutely amazing! The colors do seem to conflict with the scents a bit though.

Also, I just noticed today, I'm blocked from your twitter? I'd love to know if I did something wrong... Hopefully I didn't though. =(

Unknown said...

Wow these shades are amazing shades! I could have fun with all those colors! Amazing giveaway!
