Too Faced Peach Palette Review

This limited edition Too Faced Peach Palette has finally hit Australia and I can now tick this beauty off my wishlist! If you read my "Current Wishlist: Part 1" post that I had made a couple of weeks ago, I had mentioned wanting to get this palette. It had released on the 24th of May both online and in-stores and stock was running out fast for good reason. It is a palette that you definitely want to grab your hands on and just take a huge sniff!

This highly demanded palette is filled with 18 shades of peaches, pinks, corals, bronzes, purples and creams, with a pop of olive green. These sweet shades are infused with a peachy scent that captivate your senses the second you open the palette up. The shades offered in this palette leans towards the warm tones but is reasonably versatile for all skin tones. Anyone complexion can take the plunge and rock out the shades.

If you own the predecessors of the Chocolate and Semi-Chocolate Palettes (both by Too Faced), you can guess that the pigmentation, quality and formula will not disappoint you. It is pigmented, easy to use and long-lasting. I did not expect any less and Too Faced delivered. There is one or two odd shades that does not do the palette justice but overall, it is a great item to have in your collection. Each pan holds 0.95g/0.03 oz. of product and you get a total of 18 shades to play with. It is definitely worth the dollar.

The palette is encased in the signature tin container, with peach imprints on the cover lid. It has a beautifully crafted ombre gradient going across the exterior of the palette and the pink and peach tones complements the nature of the shades. Each palette comes with a guide book to provide suggestions on how to use the shades on recommended eye-looks you can come up with. It also comes with a large mirror.

Now what's different about this palette than to its predecessors is that it doesn't have two larger pans present. It has all equally sized pans in the palette, which I personally dislike. I liked the concept of the two larger pans, it was unique and innovative. The two larger shades are the shades you use the most and would need the most product. So it makes sense to have larger pans, but for this palette, Too Faced had changed it and I can only guess for good reason.

Top Row
  • White Peach - a very light beige satin/matte shade, with slight yellow undertones
  • Luscious - a peachy, shimmer shade similar to BECCA Opal Highlighter, having a metallic finish
  • Just Peachy - a peachy, pink shimmer with gold accents, similar to orgasm from NARS
  • Bless Her Heart - a dull, subtle olive-green shimmer (I wish this shade was a lot more vibrant in colour)
  • Tempting - a dark brown, matte shade, very pigmented!
  • Charmed, I'm sure - an earthy, medium brown matte shade. This was one of the shades that wasn't as smooth as the other shades, in my opinion. It is better used with a primer. 
Second Row
  • Nectar - a slighter darker, light beige, frost-sheen shade, than White Peach
  • Cobbler - a muted, reddish-brown shade with a pearly sheen finish
  • Candled Peach - a bright coral/peach matte shade
  • Bellini - a gold-pink duochrome shimmer shade
  • Peach Pit - a dark, reddish brown with a little shimmer
  • Delectable - a burgundy purple satin shade
Third Row

  • Peaches 'n' Cream - a light, cream matte shade with pink undertones (great shade for blending!)
  • Georgia - a medium, peachy matte shade, with a hint of orange. 
  • Caramelized - a warm, bronze shimmer shade
  • Puree - a medium caramel brown matte shade, with a hint of orange
  • Summer Yum - a reddish-earthy brown matte shade, with a hint of orange
  • Talk Derby to Me - a dark purple/violet shade with fine purple sparkles. (there's a lot of fall out because of the sparkles - and another shade I disliked from the palette. It didn't blend well with the sparkles and it was harder to blend than the rest of the shades. Best to buildup colour slowly and always use a clean brush to blend so there isn't any uneven application)

Similarly to the other Too Faced Eyeshadow palettes, there were a few shades that were misses. But overall, the palette is great. It is pigmented, it is easy to blend (especially the matte shades) and it is very long-lasting. However, to be frank, this palette is nothing unique to past palettes that have been released in the last year. There are some shades in this palette that you might not have, but trust that you have at least 60% or more in your collection from another palette. If so, you can save your money on this palette and give it a pass - even though it is a limited edition. But if you don't have peachy shades in your collection, like I do. Then, this palette is a great collection of peachy shades that will compliment any skintone.

This palette originally retails for $78 AUD but the price has dropped since then and is now $72, along with the other Too Faced Eyeshadow Palettes. You can purchase these in any local Mecca Maxima store near you or online at Mecca.com.au. If not available online, you can alternatively order it from a third party forwarding (e.g. Shop and Box or Shipito) company and they can find it for you.

I hope you enjoyed my review and if you have any questions, you can comment below and I'll answer your questions or reply in a jiffy!

Stay awesome, guys!
