Too Faced White Peach Eyeshadow Palette ($45) is a new Spring 2018 permanent eyeshadow palette that’s being added to the Too Faced Peaches & Cream Collection at Sephora and on their website. The White Peach Eyeshadow Palette comes close on the heels of the release of the Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes Velvet Matte Eyeshadow Palette which is a deeper, warmer selection of shades. This go around Too Faced went with lighter shades in a variety of finishes that includes mattes, satins, and shimmers.
I actually liked the Just Peachy Mattes Palette a lot however, upon seeing the White Peach Eyeshadow Palette I was a little at odds with what sort of looks I could create using the plums and peaches they included. I totally lack the creativity to create a look using purple and peach but I was determined to enjoy the peachy shades in this palette because I love these kind of shades. I did try to combine purple with peach in my look below but I failed miserably 🙂
My problem though stems from the fact that the shades are a little too light for me. I have a light medium skin tone with warmer undertones and the shades were way too light and sheer for me. After trying the palette though I realized it wasn’t so much the fault of my skin tone but the formula itself as the shades sheer away when blended and the colors don’t contrast well not to mentioning they are quite chalky.
Here’s how things went down with the To Faced White Peach Eyeshadow Palette.
Too Faced White Peach Eyeshadow Palette ($45) arrives in a gorgeous light lilac ombre palette with a cute little peach decorating the front and a peach clasp to keep it closed. Inside you’ll find a generously sized mirror and 12 uniformly sized eyeshadows that are 0.04 oz each in size. I said it a few times in the past and I’ll say it again in this review, Too Faced did a fine joy with packaging on the Peaches & Cream Collection. This palette really is presented in beautifully pleasing way. I wish the eyeshadows inside were as high quality as the packaging. The palette is bulk made in the US and assembled in the Dominican Republic.
As with the all the items in this collection this has a sweet peach and fig scent which I find very pleasant. It’s a lot stronger than the scent in Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette. However, if you’re sensitive to fragrance in your makeup you might not love the scent but I find it quite cute and pleasing.
The palette features a how-to-get the look guide which came in handy for me as I was a little loss creating looks using these shades. It isn’t because they aren’t pretty it’s just because the shades sort of run together. I love some of them as they are quite pretty but when you’re trying to pair them up together into one look it can get a little confusing due to how sheer they apply and also, how completely different they are to each other. It could be me but I took one look at it and felt a little overwhelmed. There are so many really cute shades here but I couldn’t pick out two that contrasted with other well and just sort of jived together if that makes sense. My first look I thought Peach Suede and Glistening Peach would be a good duo but they don’t exactly contrast well since the shades are quite similiar just with different finishes of matte and shimmer.
Another issue is the mattes are so sheer you have to pile and pile and pile color on to get a good pay off. I want to say, “Well it’s probably my skin tone!” but in reality, it’s just that the shades are very light, sheer, and chalky in finish. The texture of the mattes, which dominate the palette, is fairly soft and silky but they blend into nothingness as you apply. The shimmer shades like Glistening Peach and Peach Passion have better color pay off but with a good deal of chunky fall out.
For $45, it’s a bust. This just didn’t work for me at all and I think even someone with a fairer skin tone will struggle with it as well. The shades just require a bit more rhythm and reason not to mention they are sorely lacking pigment.
