Too Faced Peach Perfect Mattifying Setting Powder ($32) is a new silky matte finish peach-tinted setting powder that launched with the new Too Faced Peaches and Cream Collection late last week. I know what you’re thinking, “But you always say you don’t use setting powder!”
Too true my friends, too true! But how could I resist a setting powder that smelled like peaches? Call me crazy but that was a key selling point for me. No joke! Remember scented dolls growing up? Rose Petal comes to mind! She smelled like roses!
Anyway, in reality I rarely use loose powder that often but sometimes I get bit by good marketing.
Here’s my thoughts, review, and swatches of Too Faced Peach Perfect Mattifying Setting Powder.
Too Faced Peach Perfect Mattifying Setting Powder comes housed in a double-lid chunky plastic jar that holds 1.23 oz of powder. The packaging is adorable. The enameled gold lid has a cute peach emblem decorating the front and the jar has a nice weighty feel to it. I truly believe they did a great job with the packaging on the Peaches & Cream Collection and it is vanity worthy. It’s quite cute but also, has a certain expensive look and feel to it as well. This does have a dual lid one of which unscrews and beneath that a lid that snaps up. I found the double lid both useful and annoying. The double lid ensures that you don’t have messy powder everywhere when you open the first lid. However, if you’re one that taps powder into the lid to apply you’ll find the double lid can get in the way of doing this. I found it a little messy to tap the powder into the first lid without the secondary one getting in the way a little. I’m used to just tipping the jar of my powder upside down and allowing it to flow into the lid and proceeding to open it. That’s impossible to do with the secondary lid in place. Tapping it into the lid is doable just a bit awkward. But the double lid also means it’s completely mess free and very easy to travel with so, this packaging has many benefits.
Too Faced markets this as a lightweight loose powder wwith a peach tint that brightens skin and has a comfortable 12 hour matte finish. They also recommend it as perfect for baking under eyes. This is a talc-based powder that doesn’t contain silica. The talc works in favor of the texture as it isn’t slippery as silica and it feels very soft, silky, and finely milled. As promised it smells like yummy peaches and can be smelled during the application but doesn’t linger during the wear.
I thought the consistency was beautiful on the powder. It’s soft, silky, and blends easily on my drier skin. It also reduced shine on my forehead very easily without clinging to the drier areas around my face. The finish was very smooth. The shade is indeed a soft beige peach but it applies translucent but as with many translucent powders you have to be careful not to overdue it as it can look pasty and chalky. A light dusting is plenty to set my foundation and keep the minor shine I have on my forehead at pay. The matte finish is indeed comfortably lightweight and doesn’t look or feel dry. I have my doubts it’ll keep oil at bay for 14 hours. My shiny forehead got about five hours in before it started to look a bit oily again.
Too Faced Peach Perfect Mattifying Setting Powder is definitely worth a haul if you use setting powder often and don’t mind the talc-based formula. It’s soft, silky, easy to blend, and easy to wear for all skin types.
