The Too Faced Funfetti Eyeshadow Palette is a new, limited edition palette that’s available in the Too Faced Funfetti Collection which is an HSN Today’s Special. The set includes 5 full-size Too Faced products including this eyeshadow palette and I thought I’d review each piece individually with final thoughts on the set in another post.
Let’s take a look at the Too Faced Funfetti Eyeshadow Palette below.
Most people expected the Too Faced Funfetti Collection to arrive for Spring 2017 but with many things in the works this Spring from Too Faced like the Kat Von D release as well as the return of the Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette, Papa Don’t Peach Blush, and Peach Glow Palette we already have plenty to keep us busy. This Funfetti Collection doesn’t come as too much of a surprise if you follow Jerrod Blandino on Instagram because he’s been dropping at it for a while now.
You can’t purchase the Too Faced Funfetti Eyeshadow Palette by itself sadly. It’s available in a 5 piece set that’s $55 and also includes Funfetti Love Flush Blush, Funfetti Lipgloss, Better Than Sex Mascara, and Heart Flatbuki Brush. This price is available today only on HSN.com. If the set doesn’t sell out, the price will go up tomorrow.
The Too Faced Funfetti Eyeshadow Palette comes in a cute confetti decorated, pink, thin cardboard compact that features a heart shaped mirror inside and 12 eyeshadows. The palette is made in China.

The palette is a little, mmmm, uneventful. The shades seem dull to me and they are a bit mismatched so, I felt a little challenging pairing up colors. For my look below, I went rather boring with the standard gold and brown eye look you can get from most Too Faced Eyeshadow Palettes using the shades Pop, Fizz, Clink!, After Party, Party Crashed, and Girl Gang.
There’s not a lot of rhythm or reason with these shades and isn’t as cohesive as one would hope for. When using shades together they ended up blending together into one shade. It was difficult to get contrast from them because they were so similar.
I will say the colors are actually not exact dupes of Too Faced past palettes. Although similar they aren’t spot on dupes and if anything at all this is actually the softest Too Faced Palette I’ve seen from the brand as many of the shades are softer and duller with sheerer color pay off. They also have a softer consistency than anything I’ve tried from Too Faced in the past. They have a powdery, velvety consistency that’s very, very different from Too Faced normal formula. They also have a lot less shimmer. Too Faced’s eyeshadows tend to go very metallic on me and have a heavier formula loaded with shimmer. There are shimmers here but the effect is softer and lighter and almost fluffier in texture. It’s an interesting formula that applied and blended easily on my drier eyes but did fade quickly so, primer is key for all day wear. I could see myself loving this palette if the colors were a bit more richer. They just seem rather gloomy and dull like a rainy day!
This isn’t to say there aren’t some very nice shades in this palette. The mattes stand out as being soft and easy to apply. Also Girl Gang, Party Crasher, After party, and Funfetti all had excellent pigment. Funny as every single shade here had an excellent soft and easy to blend consistency. No dryness here, no chalkiness, no stiffness, nor issues with patchy application. It’s just the colors were a little uneventful.
There’s no doubt the Too Faced Funfetti Collection is an excellent deal. It’ll make a new makeup lover a very nice gift! But the palette might disappoint hardcore fans of the Too Faced eyeshadow formula. I can see myself using some of thee softer mattes as transitional shades and even some of the neutrals will work great for quickie eyeshadow looks! I wouldn’t completely write it off but I always like to let you know what you’re exactly getting into before you hit that submit button to buy!
