Too Faced Razzle Dazzle Berry Eyeshadow Palette review and swatches

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.

Too Faced Razzle Dazzle Berry Eyeshadow Palette Swatches (Dazzle, Pink Suede, Razzle, Berried Treasure)

Too Faced Razzle Dazzle Berry Swatches (Boys n Berry, Bad to the Berry, That’s My Jame)

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

Ulta Too Faced

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!

Pros

  • Anyone who likes berry shades.
  • Anyone who loves beautifully packaged makeup!

Cons

  • Drier matte shades
  • Fall out.
  • Eyeshadows that aren’t pressed well result resulting in breakage and chunks of powder.

Who

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.

    I love the idea of these palettes and wanted sooo much more when I saw the pineapple palette reviews (I’ve been good and haven’t bought anything from the collection yet), but these are so my colors. I think this is the one I’ll be picking up when I get the Ulta golden ticket coupon. I LOVE the look you created!

    • Isabella Muse

      I love the idea too! I WISH the quality was a little better but I had fun with them anyway ;-D thank YOU!!!!!!!!!!!! ;D

  • Susan

    Mine should be here tomorrow and I’m glad I ordered it. Thinking about it, this is what I wanted UD’s Backtalk palette to be, which I waffled about forever and never bought (didn’t need more blushes anyway). Also glad I returned that horrible Morphe Bling Boss because this looks so much better. Thanks for the swatches & review!

    • Isabella Muse

      Let me what you think please? I’d really like some honest opinions about it as I keep feeling I’m being too critical on it. I had fun with it regardless though and I’m glad I got it ;-D My pleasure! LMK how it goes!

      • Susan

        I got it and have played with a bit and don’t feel you’re being too critical. I like the colors and am semi-glad I got it, but the formula of some of the shades is weird. I had a hard time picking up the shimmers with a brush, especially the far right shade, That’s My Jam. My favorite color is the matte orchid, Boys N Berry. Razzle was very crumbly for me. After I used some of the shimmers, the pans look different, as if there was some kind of overspray. So… strange but OK. Not the best cool-toned palette, wish this had come out in the spring and not now when I’m almost ready for fall!

        • Isabella Muse

          I’m the same. Semi-glad I got it but now too wowed by it. ITA! The purple could work for Fall but not these purples if that makes sense. Oh well! I don’t regret it but not exactly the best eyeshadow palette I’ve tried!

          • Susan

            Yes on all counts. I love pink but not when the season turns to fall. I think I could make these shades work with some cool browns, though. And next spring I think I’ll have a lot of fun with it.

          • Isabella Muse

            that would look nice! but Agreed come spring I’ll be reach for this! btw with the glitters, if it doesn’t make you squeamish, you can pat them on with your finger! It works a lot better than a brush!

  • Carol G

    I’m still on the fence with this. I didn’t order anything from this collection yet either because I was waiting for reviews/swatches. I really like this color scheme but I also just received the Maybelline Soda Pop palette today (didn’t swatch it yet, I’m at work) and I am thinking that there are some shades in the Soda Pop that are very similar to this. That being said, I might just make do with the Soda Pop and skip this TF one. Or I might just wait and hope this goes on sale and then pick it up. Muse, did you purchase any of the blushes in this collection? Was just curious how those are. I have my eye on the cherry one…

    • Isabella Muse

      Hey Carol! I’d wait. Just play with it in store first before deciding! They do look a lot alike from promo images (didn’t get mine, it arrives Friday). I did indeed, I’ll have a review for them shortly…! I’m still testing them out!

  • Melaina

    I don’t trust any of the early reviews any more. 4 and 5 stars, glowing praise, just to read “I got this for free” at the end. While some I’m sure some are honest, it’s consistent high reviews for ‘influencer’ given products, for me to pay full price for a sub par product. (Becca Love, UD Lo-Fi, Smashbox/Vlada are a few recent that come to mind.) It’s just so frustrating.
    I very much appreciate your honesty.

    • Isabella Muse

      I’m amazed at the ones on the TF site all 4 or 5 reviews. I was worried I might be too critical of the formula. I’m looking forward to reading more reviews from honest bloggers like temptalia to see how my thoughts compare! and thank you <3 xo!

  • kjh

    Very pretty look. Sounds as if anyone who throws out the plastic insert shadow cover will live to regret it. Fally aparty is a big no for me. Sounds as if the formula needs improvement, but the shades are super.

  • Felicia Burton

    The shades look really pretty in your swatches. I have refrained from picking up either palette but I think I’m going to have to get this one now. I love the way your eyes look. So pretty. And I saw your comment earlier about you owing me some emails and comments and girl don’t even worry about it I know how busy you are. 🙂

    • Isabella Muse

      thank you Felicia! Again I’m behind replying to you! <3!!!!! you're comments always welcome! <3! thank you for understanding my dear!

  • Mikki

    I know my comment is a bit late to your post, but I actually had quite the opposite experience you had with some of the shades! And I definitely don’t think you’re too critical on this palette! This palette has its ups and downs.

    The mattes are really easy for me to pick up with my brush (I’ve been using the real techniques base shadow brush/sigma e25) and the shimmers/metallics never really crumbled on me. It’ll flake a bit but no crumbling. However, just like you, I found the shimmers/metallics were really hard for me to pick up with a brush. Typically my sigma e55 will pick up anything, but there was little to no pigment or it was patchy unless you super pack it on. Even with primer! The overall blendability was good, but I definitely think this palette needs finger application if you want it to work. At least that’s how I dealt with the anti-brush shades haha

    Maybe people are using different techniques? I really like this palette, but it for sure has issues if you don’t experiment on application.

    • Isabella Muse

      oh not at all late! I’m reading very few reviews I actually believe so I’m happy your commented so soon! Did you feel the mattes were a bit dry? I think maybe I’m so used to silkier textures like the one see from ABS I end up feeling like everything else is dry! I ended up patting with a finger for the shimmer/metallics. See if that works for you! It seems the best technique to apply those!

  • bella

    Those colors look so gorgeous on you! Just beautiful. I was re about Maybelline’s Soda Pop, and since I use the Maybelline city min palettes every day, I am going to check out Soda pop instead.

    • Felicia Burton

      Just want to say I got my Soda Pop palette over the weekend and I am quite pleased with it. Just as much fun as the lemonade one and the shimmery colors are gorgeous! All the shadows were super soft and buttery for Maybelline however I did find myself using my fingers quite a bit but that’s mainly cause I like to use the glitter. Smells a bit odd, not quite soda or grape. 🙂

  • Susan

    Update on my adventures with this palette. While I thought it was only OK after playing with swatches and was going to keep it, when I did a full eye look with it, my eyes started watering and watering. I think I’m allergic to something in it. So while I hate to return things I bought, this is going back to Ulta. Ugh, I don’t return anything for years and then in the last two weeks this will be my third return. 🙁 (this and two of those horrible Morphe palettes)

    • Isabella Muse

      oh no sorry susan! Fragrance maybe! 🙁 I’m sorry hun! that sucks!
