Too Faced Sweet Peach Glow Peach-Infused Highlighting Palette ($42) is a new three shade highlighting palette that has a peach-infused formula which gives skin a pretty peachy glow. Too Faced Sweet Peach Glow Palette launched with the Too Faced Spring 2017 Collection that’s all about peach everything courtesy the popularity of the Too Faced Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette that launched a few months ago and sold out in the blink of an eyelash!
Let’s take a look at my review and swatches below.
Too Faced Sweet Peach Glow Palette comes housed in a pretty little tin which is decorated with a cute little peach. Inside you’ll find the same cute peach theme with a peach emoji located at the corner of the very generously sized mirror. The ombre peach compact is set off by a pretty gold face place that holds the wells of each of the powders. I mentioned in my Too Faced Papa Don’t Peach Blush that the packaging and kawaii nature of the entire Sweet Peach Collection is very Japanese-like. Some makeup addicts love the chic, modern packaging but I’m personally a makeup junkie that loves cuteness and Too Faced delivers with this collection. The peachy theme continues with the blush that’s imprinted with a fat, juicy peach and the highlighter and bronzer has a dotted peach imprint.
I liked the palette but the reviews that are incoming are harsh. Most people are very, very unsatisfied with the pigmentation here and I can understand why. It’s going to be a particular sore spot for contour and highlighting experts. I’m not an expert at either so, I thought it was rather a nice palette overall. I am in agreement that the pigmentation just isn’t quite here. It’s a very sheer selection of powders that are difficult to pick up due to their smooth, ice skating rink-like texture. I’d liken the density of the powders to NARS Dual-Intensity Blush. You need a dense brush or perhaps a kabuki to get the best color pay off here. I think most people thought that the blush shade would be the same as Papa Don’t Peach but they are actually different in both texture and color. I think the Sweet Peach Glow Blush was what I wanted Papa Don’t Peach to be as it has more of a golden sheen which Papa Don’t Peach lacked. This is a lighter shade as well and not quite as warm as Papa Don’t Peach. It shows up peachy coral on my skin but it does have hints of orange as well. It is sheer so building is required to get the best color pay off.
The Illuminator is possibly the best product in the palette as it does have a nice firm texture which means ladies and lads with heavy hands like me can diffuse the color to a pretty luminosity without overdoing it or creating a discoball finish on your skin. The most disappointing powder was the bronzer! If you’re going into this purchasing think to yourself that this is a great contour, highlighting, and blush palette you’ll be disappointed at the overall sheerness of everything here but in particular the bronzer will leave you feeling rather bad. It’ll add a nice touch of warm to your face but if you’re looking to use it as a contouring powder you’ll be disappointed as it is way too sheer for such a feat.
You’ll find this will work great on paler, lighter, and light medium skin tones but you might get more of a glow versus color on darker tones. The blush and bronzer won’t show up well on darker skin tones but the highlighter will work nicely on most skin tones.
One thing that deserves mentioning is this palette is considerably less scented than Papa Don’t Peach. When I applied Papa Don’t Peach I got a burst of peachy scent before and well after application. The Too Faced Sweet Peach Glow Palette I had to hold up to my nose and sniff to smell the peachy scent!
I liked the Too Faced Sweet Peach Glow Palette! I’d buy it again. I’m not a huge contour and highlighter expert so, this was a good pick for n00bs like me. I thought it gave my light medium skin tone a delightful golden peachy glow. I can see it be disappointing if you wanted a ton of pigmentation. Considering how heavy handed I am, I felt very comfortable the sheer yet buildable color here.
