Hi everyone! It's been a while since I have actually found time to sit down and shoot/write blog posts :( Since our wedding is coming up soon, I've been pretty preoccupied as you may be able to tell from my lack of updates. I hope this one makes up for it because it's a pretty exciting one!
I know this collection has been around for a while but I couldn't resist shooting it - how adorable is the packaging? Here are some swatches for you all and hope you enjoy!
If you guys have followed me for a while, you will know eyeshadow palettes are my thing! I love any eyeshadow palettes that have a nice composition of colors and smooth, buttery formulas.
The Sweet Peach eyeshadow palette contain 18 different eyeshadow shades - mainly mattes and pearlescent finishes as well as one galactic glittery shade ('Talk Derby to Me').
The colors are somewhat similar to what you'd expect from the name of the palette, but I was a bit surprised too by the olive green shade ('Bless Her Heart') and a mixture of plum and purple shades too, making it a fairly versatile palette where you are not limited to create only a peachy look.
The eyeshadows are fairly pigmented as you would expect from Too Faced (probably one of my favorite brands for eyeshadow). I would say a fair amount of shimmer shades were slightly crumbly, but apart from that they have a buttery and smooth texture upon application and are even the matte shades were relatively easy to blend. Not to mention the pink packaging is insanely cute - definitely a bonus!
Moving on to a beautiful cheek palette that I have been taking with me on my recent trips abroad - the Sweet Peach Glow! Composed of a bronzer, blush and highlighter, the palette, like I said, makes a great travel companion with it 3-in-1 design. One thing I will say is that the bronzer is literally what it's meant to be - a bronzer, not a contour powder. I still traveled with my Rodial Contour Powder as it is the perfect shade for sculpting my face, however this bronzer is too warm to substitute for my Rodial. I would just brush it around the contours of my face to add some warmth, with a little pearlescent finish it adds enough glow to my face without looking too shimmery.
The blush and highlighter I absolutely love! The powders are finely milled, making the blush extra easy to blend, even on my dry cheeks. The blush also has an understated, warm glow that radiates from my cheeks, making it look naturally luminous. The highlighter is probably the best product out of the palette - whenever I wear it I get complimented on how my complexion glows! No chunky glitters - just a smooth and fine formula, just how I like my highlight!
Last of the powdered products is the Papa Don't Peach blush which is fairly similar to the blush from the Sweet Peach Glow palette, as you can see from the photo above. If you only require a blush without bronzer and highlight, this will do! Again, cute packaging and did I mention all the products literally smell of sweet peaches and cream?
Last but not least, lippies! Now I'm not usually a fan of lip glosses, but I was intrigued as they called these "Creamy Peach Oil Lip Gloss" - I'm a fan of oil whether it be facial oil or lip oils so I had to put these to the test. They were a huge help when my lips were almost crusty due to the dry weather in China, and again, they smell amazing on the lips. The lip glosses have a fair bit of tint to them, so the color actually shows up on your lips unlike some lip glosses where they just appear to be clear when you apply them. My favorite is Peach Tease and Papa Don't Peach - the former being a bright coral pink that brightens up the complexion and the latter, a very unique nude which seem to be a rare find in lip glosses. The formula is hydrating though a little bit thick, but I dig it because it makes my lips feel more nourished. Like I said, I'm not usually a fan of lip glosses but I do find myself reaching for these frequently if I want a bit of shine to my lips.
So that's it for my review and swatches! I hope to film a demo video on my Instagram soon but like I said, I have been traveling a lot so I haven't had the chance! Hope this post helped you out and let me know if you tried anything from this collection, I'd love to hear what you think!
