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.

    Hi Muse, I was happy with this palette. I got both it and the Papa Don’t Peach blush, and while I like both, I actually like the blush in the palette the best. It seems to have a little less shimmer and a bit deeper color than the Papa Don’t Peach blush on my skin (light warm). If I had to only get one, I’d buy the palette instead of the Papa Don’t Peach blush.

    • Isabella Muse

      I was too although I expected a lot more pigment! I do too!!!!!!!!! I liked the blush a lot more than the Papa Don’t Peach one πŸ˜€ It also didn’t cling to my drier areas the way papa don’t peach did which was a plus πŸ˜€

    I got this from Ulta with 20% off and paid with my points. I’m glad it was free because if I paid for this I would have been disappointed. I haven’t tried it yet, but I’m very fair & it should work for me, that’s not the issue. I took it out of the box and thought for a $42 item it was TINY! It’s cute and all, but I don’t think it should be $42. It’s overpriced for what it is, unless I’m missing something here.

  • Melissa

    I’ve been debating on this or just the papa don’t peach blush. I don’t contour so this might be the one for me. A nice glow from the highlight, and the bronzer doesn’t look too dark. I’m light skin like you. Thanks for the review!

    • Isabella Muse

      My pleasure Melissa! You should be happy if you’re lighter skinned! It works nicely on lighter tones in my opinion!

  • Kelli Rae

    I got it as well as the blush too, as I went through hell and high waters to get the eye palette when it came out months ago. I ended up using my coupon and ponts too, so it wasn’t too pricey. I like it as well. I’m fair to light and I’m also no contouring expert and this does the job for me. I can definitely see though where some people are disappointed. This was a set I couldn’t pass up. Been waiting like the rest of you for months ! Waiting on the lippies to come to stores Great reviews as always Muse β˜ƒ

    • Isabella Muse

      Aw thanks Kelli! I think it’s great for people who are heavy handed or lighter in tone but I can see it being disappointing for darker tones. It’s just not pigmented enough for medium/darker tones! I’m glad you liked it! I liked it too! and I’m glad you used it with your coupon/pts! DEAL! yay! πŸ˜€

    I really don’t understand why they put shimmer in the bronzer. I feel like in this current era in makeup, the interest in shimmering bronzers is slim among makeup buyers. Still, I can’t figure out if I want this palette despite the fact that I will never use the bronzer…

  • CAROL G.

    I think people need to realize this is called a “glow” palette so it’s not going to be extremely pigmented. I have it and swatched it on my hand but haven’t actually worn or worked with it yet. I’m glad you suggested using a kabuki brush so that’s what I’ll do when I do end up using it. I do agree that it was kind of expensive for the size.

    • Isabella Muse

      too true! It’s just that there’s a blush here, so people likely expected a bit more from that! But all in all, I liked it! I just don’t think it’ll be a good pick for darker tones!

  • ame

    I am NC10-15 and the blush doesn’t even show up on ME, not even piling it on. SUPER FAIL. The highlight pan is awesome, and that’s about the only positive I can say about it. I got it from HSN for half price using that Visa Checkout thing, and I am still debating whether or not it’s worth keeping even at half price. It’s basically a highlight/blush topper thing.

  • Jo Anne Roberts

    Well, here goes! I am passing on this palette as well. Your review told me all I need to know! Im a medium/light olive tone and when I first saw the youtube video for application, I thought the model was very fair skinned. Knowing that, it looked good on her but, felt, it still looked light. Prob. The idea though. Im 56 so, I try to use matt bronzers and very light shimmer for highlighter. No wrinklee yet, but, still feel, this palette just won’t deliver to this mama! Im def. Buying the blush though. Very informative review! Thank you!

    • Isabella Muse

      Hi Joanne! I’m glad you thought the review as helpful πŸ™‚ It might give you a hint of a glow but sadly, if you want the blush to show up that might be a problem as it is very, very sheer πŸ™

  • Sara Marie

    Hello there, I was just wondering if the too faced sweet peach glow highlighting palette is safe to use on the eyes as well (like on the inner corner or like an eyeshadow)?
