This is the first Too Faced palette I’ve bought and I didn’t know what to expect. I always considered them to be Urban Decays poorer sibling. It seems to be they bring out very similar products that just aren’t quite as good but cost more money. Anyone else get that impression? Anyway.. I was pleasantly surprised by this little box of shadows so I thought I’d share some swatches with you. I know it’s been out an age already so it’s hardly breaking news but for those of you still wondering here are some swatches and my take on the product.
When you get it opened up you see that in a similar way to Urban Decays Book Of Shadows the bulk of the product is wasted packaging. There’s a tiny “drawer” in the front that houses a dual-ended applicator of no use to anyone and in the lid there’s a pull out section with “how to” cards which is a nice detail. It is unfortunately missing a mirror which is disappointing and makes it not so great for travel but if it’s going to live on your vanity then a mirror is wasted anyway! As with all of the Too Faced shadow collections there are 3 rows of colours offering 3 different looks each with a base, a highlight and a crease shade. This totally takes the hassle out of your everyday eyes which I think makes this a great little package. I really like the design they’ve used on these collections and I think I’ll be purchasing some of the others.
Top Row Swatches – “Day”
Middle Row Swatches – “Classic”
Bottom Row Swatches – “Fashion”
I favour the Classic row for everyday with a little of the Cocoa Puff from the Fashion row and the Velvet Revolver from the Day row. I love my neutrals and all but for the crazy yellow gold Honey Pot this is a really useable, beautiful palette for everyday eyes. I wouldn’t swap it for my beloved Naked palette but it’s definitely a valued addition to my collection.
In the above photo I’m wearing colours from the Classic row. Silk Teddy, which I have all over my lid and highlighting the inner corner is the stand out shade for me.
Do you have this? What’s your most used shadow?
