Too Faced White Peach Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

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 πŸ™‚

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.

    As you know, I did buy it but I haven’t been motivated to use it yet since it’s so springlike. My coloring is similar to yours so now I won’t be surprised going in if it is too light for me. I may use a primer with a hint of color, like UD Eden, to amp up the pigment.

    But I think they eye looks you created are nice! Not sure how hard you had to work to get those results but give yourself some credit for getting it to work for you.

    • Isabella Muse

      I am looking forward to your thoughts on it sis. I really, really can’t wait to hear what you think. I used it with a MAC Paint Pot and that helps a little bit but still quite sheer. I used a sponge applicator and piled on the color a good deal πŸ™‚ thanks! I’m not really great at contrasting/application/etc as you know but I try!

  • Janessa

    Ugh I’m so on the fence about this palette. I LOVE the packaging. And we know I’m a sucker for good packaging LOL
    But I’m just not wow’d by the inside. Maybe the next time TF does a 30% off coupon, I’ll take the plunge. But I’m pretty sure I’m skipping out on this for now πŸ™

  • Susan

    “Chalky” — the kiss of death for me. Thanks for saving me money, although tbh, I’ve given up on TF and it would take something totally incredible to bring me back.

    And hey, I just saw your beautiful selfie on Instagram! I know you have a certain look for your blog but I’d love to see you show more swatches etc. with your hair down. It wouldn’t distract from the makeup at all. <3

    • Isabella Muse

      I always say I give up but keep getting drawn back in πŸ™ I’m always sad when they disappoint me even though I KNOW I’m going to be disappointed. Oh gosh more like tired selfie πŸ™‚ We were goofing around last night and sitting up in bed with Martin and we were doing selfies and I felt compelled to post one like an idiot ;-D Not much of a selfie poster. But thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Typically my hair isn’t down in shots for the blog because I get up in the AM and get ready for work and snap a pic. I wear my hair up and away from my face for work ;-D So that’s what you see here ;D I know lazy of me but I hate my hair in my face when I’m working.

  • Kish

    This was just as I suspected. Too Faced’s quality has really gone downhill as they’ve made more of an effort to suck people in via Instagram garbage and flash. It’s a shame they don’t spend some of that advertising/influencer money on product quality. It’s sad to say, but they seem to be targeting younger markets these days and they can probably get away with lower quality with them, as they are graduating from the dollar store and Five Below makeup and don’t have a good basis for comparison.

    • Isabella Muse

      I hate to say it but you’re right, their demographic seems tween geared.

      • Susan

        Completely agree! Between the scented stuff (which I admit I thought was cool at first), the stickers, the unicorn junk, and the look-how-witty-we-are sex names, it’s so tweener-teenager.

      • Denise

        What tween can afford a $45 eyeshadow palette, though? I was strictly drugstore, all the way through college!

        • Isabella Muse

          They are actually pretty amazing consumers. I see 13-14 year olds at Sephora dropping some change!

          • Agona

            Yeah, I’m surprised at what parents give their teens for spending money these days, compared to what I had.

          • Isabella Muse

            me too. No joke I see kids around like 13 at most in Victoria’s Secret. I had plain white bras my mom brought for me when I was that age. Maybe I was a late bloomer!? I mean I got my period when I was 12 and I still was pretty much a really naive kind of kid at the time. Not to be morbid but I remember being scared and sort of crying when it happened even though my mom had the birds and bees conversation and we watched this video with Growing Up on Broadway with Aileen Quinn aka Annie at school which absolutely traumatized me lol! My mom even came to school that day to watch it with me and the other girls. Can you say mortified? It’s just girls are so much different now. I read an article that said girls are even getting their periods at a much younger age. They grow up way faster than I ever did. They have their own iphones, I mean I see these little chicks walking around with iphone x and holding Sephora bags and I’m like damn I was not that girl growing up. I dunno if I was just a weird kid or the generation is very much different from my own! I mean I was begging my dad for scholastic money when I was in 7th grade because I wanted ALL the books! Makeup and beauty were way over my head at the time.

  • Dee

    I wasn’t even tempted by this one although the packaging is adorable. I don’t think I could wear any of these shades and if they are chalky? No

    • Isabella Muse

      I was kind of hopeful I could pull them off but they are a bit too pastel for me. The chalkiness doesn’t help ;-/ They aren’t dry though. The formula is quite silky but no pigment :-/

  • Carol G

    Saw this reviewed on a few other blogs and the consensus was the same: too chalky, the shades are too light.
    Yes, TF better get their act together because they are launching some stinkers lately.
    I agree with the above comment about them trying to market towards the younger crowd.
    Haven’t been excited by anything by them in a long time…

  • Annie Marie

    Ugh, I should’ve known. :/ Typical Too Faced rolling out the pretty-packaged garbage. They’ve been going steadily downhill for quite a while now… I’m one of those people who didn’t really like the Chocolate Bar palettes (it just felt too chalky to me and anything I tried muddied together), but I liked the original 9-pan palettes like Natural Eyes and Boudoir Eyes… Summer Eyes was my baby while it was still around, I’m still so upset it’s gone. That was the only mostly-glitter color palette I’ve seen Too Faced release that actually worked super well… at-least for me. I’m not sure what others thought, but I obviously loved it.
    I still have yet to replace my original Natural Eyes, simply because I’m afraid to invest in another in case it’s now a dud purchase. :/ Every new shitty release just makes me extra nervous.

    • Isabella Muse

      lol I love the way you said “every new shitty release just makes me extra nervous” tell me about it πŸ˜€ They have some sort of new lacy, neutral eyes palettes releasing this Summer let’s hope for the best!

      • Annie Marie

        Honesty is my policy. πŸ˜› Gimmicky packaging does not a good product make (glitter, glitter everywhere, just why).
        And I guess I’ll keep my fingers crossed. :/ I think if they release one more failure of a product, a lot of us are just gonna abandon ship… which is a shame because sometimes they come out with good things and when it’s good, it’s really good… but at the same time, when it sucks, it sucks hardcore, so I definitely understand if they flee.
        Although I swear I’ll murder the founder if I see one more glitter-infused anything. >:/ Jerrod, buddy, for the love of pizza and breadsticks, please, just stop. No more chunky, dusty, fall-out galore, gets-on-everything glitter shades, you’re just sooo bad at it. Stick to satins and mattes, I can’t stand seeing those unused glitterbombs sitting there in my palettes, begging me to give them a purpose.
        ” Use me,” they say. ” Don’t let my existence be in vain. Please, use me.”
        ” I can’t,” I reply unblinking as I dip mercilessly into the color next to them, a soft satin with gorgeous pigment and payoff. ” I gave you a chance and you failed me.”
        ” I can change,” they cry out in desperation. ” I won’t fall all over your face this time. I won’t turn you into a disco ball after only an hour of wear. I won’t get onto your favorite dress.”
        ” It’s too late for that,” I answer, an uncaring goddess who once trusted a Too Faced glitter who spoke the same words, their promises ringing hollow, just like always.
        Then I slowly bring down the lid of my palette, their screams of anguish filling the room until it closes upon them with a soft click.

  • Christina

    Hmm, the shade range is fine for me, but I can’t stand chalky eyeshadows. I like the packaging and design, but I don’t own a single Too Faced product–shocking, I know!–let alone one that performs poorly. Their lip products are fine, and even some of their blushes/highlighters, but it’s just not a brand I’m aesthetically drawn to.

    After reading your review, I’m pretty sure I won’t pick this up. I was lucky enough to get the MAC peach palette, and that one is pretty darn great for my complexion, so no need for another peach palette.

    • Isabella Muse

      Which peach one Christina? The lunar year palette looked amazing but I was concerned it would be too light for me!

      • Christina

        Yeah the lunar new year palette inspired by peaches. Don’t worry. I’m 100% positive you can dupe every single shade in it! LOL! It’s not too light for me, but I think some of the shades would have been close to your skin tone.

  • Maria

    I did not order the too faced white peach since most of the shades are too light. I am still debating if I should get the ABH Prism palette on sale this week. Muse, do you have this Prism palette? Thanks.

    • Isabella Muse

      I don’t. I actually didn’t order it as the colors weren’t appealing to me at the time!

  • breyerchic04

    I love light colors, and particularly peaches and lilacs, so I really thought about this. But your review and another one made me pretty sure I don’t want it. I do want some new palette for this spring because I think the last palette i bought was Modern Renaisance. hopefully someone will come out with something awesome (I don’t want all mattes).

  • Lisa

    Luckily, this palette seems to work fine for me. I’ve really been drawn to more light shimmery eye looks and this fits the bill. I have the original peach palette and have always struggled to use the colors, they always seem to go muddy on me. With this one, I’ve been pretty pleased. I think with pastel mattes, because of the nature how light they are, more white has to be added to really make them opaque. My skin tone is light-medium and I love the light freshness of this palette
    But then again I’m in the minority with the Clover palette too. I think the packaging is adorable and I have had no problem with shadows themselves. In fact, I bought it cause I’m a completist :0) and really expected it to be awful. But I’ve gotten a lot of good looks out of it and have no issues with the quality.

    • Isabella Muse

      I’m glad to hear it Lisa!!!!!!!! ;-D I really hoped that the shades would work for me but some reason I could’t pull them off. But hey, I’m super glad they worked out for you ;-D that’s good news! Enjoy both palettes!!!!!!!!!

  • Alyssa

    I own the chocolate bar pallet and love it for the most part. Because of that I bought a Christmas pallet from them a few years ago, Macaroons or something. It was not up to par. Every release since then I’ve been thinking Meh, it’s not worth it. The only one that’s gotten good reviews from all my bloggers/vloggers I follow is the matte peach pallet, which I might consider but the colors are out of my comfort zone. No one seems to like Too Faced eyeshadows anymore.

  • Lynn

    I seem to be the only one but I love this palette. Finally some cool toned colours. I have all the TF peach palettes and use shades from each of them to create looks. I agree this latest one is on the powdery/chalky side but I love the shades so much, I’ll make it work.

    • Isabella Muse

      You aren’t alone πŸ™‚ there are quite a few people that enjoyed it! And heck if it works for you, enjoy it πŸ˜€

  • Ricki Simon

    I am wearing the shades one at a time or pairing them with neutrals from other palettes. Love the shimmers!

    • Isabella Muse

      That def works! If you don’t combine the shades they wear individually quite nicely as color washes!

  • jel888

    Saw the colors and immediately said, not for me. Just too pale. I’m really enjoying Boss Lady though! It was my first Too Faced palette, and it works for me.

  • Linda

    Your link for 15% off Tarte….for Halloween takes you to a post from 2014?

    • Isabella Muse

      what link is there? I don’t have a link for 15% Tarte in this post?

  • genevieve

    Personally, I thought many of the shades were too similar to each other, especially when used and given TF’s ability to disappoint, it might be an epic fail. If the quality was better, I think they would work well on darker skin tones, because on me (so porcelain) they wouldn’t show at all.

  • Tigerlaf

    This palette is basically a palette of transition shades only and two random darks. If you look at it that way (only as a supplementary transition palette) then it’s not bad, however, this was supposed to be a palette to create full looks with, and it failed miserably at it. You can’t create decent depth with only pastel transition shades and a random greyish black! Whoever approved of this color scheme needs to be fired, lol.

  • Christina D.

    Maybe it was your advance warning, maybe it was a different formulation, but I used the White Peach palette today and I love the results. Yes, there was a bit of fallout but I have no other complaints. Even with my limited skills, I managed to create a nice smokey purple eye.

    • Isabella Muse

      awesome! I’m glad to hear it! That’s a relief. A few people in the comments mentioning it being a good run for them. Maybe I’m just put off by the lack of contrasting shades. Enjoy it sis!

  • McRachel

    I am glad I skipped this. I like the lighter colors, because I tend to go for low contrast eyeshadow looks and focus more on mascara and liner. I’ve truly had mixed luck with Too Faced. I love my Natural Mattes palette, but I hated the Natural Eyes and Boudoir Eyes because I thought they had the quality of makeup you’d get at Claire’s. Based on those experiences, I did purchase the Matte Peach palette. The shadows were very smooth and easy to work with, but the colors all made me look like I’d been crying, or like an albino bunny rabbit. I am really so ready for these red based eyeshadows to be over. I really don’t like these types of shades on anyone that has fair skin unless they’re really doing something intentionally a little more gothic or really intense.
