Too Faced Tutti Frutti Razzle Dazzle Berry Eyeshadow Palette ($34) is a new scented eyeshadow that launched with the Too Faced Tutti Frutti Collection recently which is available exclusively at Ulta.
I can’t believe I’m saying this but out of the two eyeshadow palettes that launched in this collection this is probably my favorite shade range. I thought that Sparkling Pineapple would have been the palette I’d like the most in regards to colors but turns out I’m liking the colors in the Razzle Dazzle Berry Eyeshadow Palette more. Although the formula is sadly not that great…..!
On that note I will say so far, I’ve had a freaking blast playing with this collection if nothing else. I was up at 4 AM this morning and after my workout, shower, and breakfast, I got to work blending my little heart out and creating a look and I really loved how it came out. Even though the formula is problematic I can see myself reaching for the palette again to recreate the same look!
One of the things I find myself mentioning over and over in my review of this collection is the packaging. I’m sorry but I’m a packaging h0r! I love good packaging and it’s really a make or break thing with me when it comes to makeup at times (although as I’ve gotten older I realize that packaging is not everything). Too Faced really did a good job with presenting this collection. I know, I know I’ve ranted plenty about their juvenile packaging in the past but I really love the fruit-theme. Please forgive me?
The palette arrives in a gold plated compact featuring a lilac pink backdrop with big raspberries. The back of the palette has the names of each shade printed on it and inside there’s a generously sized mirror that has a cute little raspberry smiling at you. Like all of the collection the palette has a unique fruity fragrance. It smells like some sort of sugary raspberry flavored gum. I thought it was pleasantly and unlike the Sparkling Pineapple Eyeshadow Palette it didn’t disappear after I used the palette. I didn’t smell it during application either. The palette is Made in France.
Like the Sparkling Pineapple Eyeshadow palette the formula on some of these shades is very dry or two loosely packed. I have to admit I was kind of shocked when I read reviews on Ulta and Too Faced’s website because it’s mostly 4 and 5 star ratings and I can’t help but wonder what am I missing here or perhaps I’m a little critical.
Dazzle and Pink are two mattes that had a drier texture and I found difficult to pick up with my eyeshadow brush. Razzle is a metallic shade which is also difficult to pick up with a brush and best gently onto the lid with a finger for the best application. The shade is a little crumbly though and loosely packed which results in fall out. Berried Treasure is one of the best shades in the palette with a soft, velvet texture. Boys N Berry is equally dry but picked up easily with a brush. Bad to the Berry was quite dry and had glittery fall out. That’s My Jam! is a beautiful metallic with too soft texture that causes the shade to break as soon as a sponge or brush is swiped into it. It’s almost as if this shade had a cream texture as it just breaks off in really big chunks.
Having said all this, which sounds bad I know, I didn’t have too many issues blending my look out and the application was fairly good aside from some fall out. The colors are quite pigmented as well but some of the mattes apply a bit sheerer and need to be built up.
It’s not going to win any awards that’s for sure. But I can’t lie and say I didn’t really love using this! I don’t regret the purchase at all. Sometimes you gotta deal with crappy formulas to create cool looks and that’s how I feel about the Too Faced Razzle Dazzle Berry Eyeshadow Palette!
What do you think of it?
Where to buy
Too Faced Razzle Dazzle Berry Eyeshadow Palette is a new scented eyeshadow palette that’s $34 and contains seven berry eyeshadow shades each of which is 0.03 oz each. The formula on these shades is either too dry or loosely pressed which resulted in breakage and chunks of shadow flying around. I didn’t have issues blending the shades thankfully but they did prove a little difficult to pick up with my brush due to the drier texture. There was some fall out with the metallic and shimmer shades as well which meant extra time spent cleaning up. This wasn’t a great palette but there is some fun to be had with these shades!
- Anyone who likes berry shades.
- Anyone who loves beautifully packaged makeup!
- Drier matte shades
- Fall out.
- Eyeshadows that aren’t pressed well result resulting in breakage and chunks of powder.
I can see the Too Faced Razzle Dazzle Berry Eyeshadow Palette for anyone that’s easily enticed by great packaging or for those that collect and display makeup. The formula isn’t the best but the shades are fun and funky which will make it appealing for those that favor bolder, vibrant looks.
