This one needs no introduction — the Too Faced Sweet Peach collection has been teased and hyped up for MONTHS! It was finally released just before Christmas and while I know there are tons of reviews — and most have already purchased it or not — I wanted to share my thoughts on it. Did the products in the collection live up to the hype? Do you need to run out and snag anything? 🙂
Too Faced Sweet Peach Collection
This palette was released spring of 2016 and is what started the peach trend, but I did not purchase it. I was slightly surprised that I didn’t — because I enjoy my other chocolate palettes that I own — but I never thought myself to care for the color peach. Add to that, I didn’t think pinks and peaches looked that good on me. But since this was sent to me, and I’ve been using it for the last month, I’ve definitely changed my mind about peach eyes!
Okay, so let’s talk about the palette quality for a moment. All the shadows feel very nice, they swatch well, and nearly all perform amazingly, too. I think the only “dud” in the palette is Nectar. Whenever I use it, it just looks powdery and patchy. The purples in this palette aren’t the most pigmented shadows, but they build nicely. And from my experience, purples seem to be the trickiest when it comes to eyeshadows. Talk Derby To Me, Candied Peach, and Delectable all have sparkle in them, but when used with a brush the sparkle blends away and they perform/look like a matte. Which is fine by me! Tempting is almost like that, but still holds on to a little bit of shimmer.
Swatch Time! I swirled my finger into the pan, and then swiped it twice on my arm. No ‘double dipping’ into the pan.
Is It Worth the Hype?
If you like to use these types of shades, then YES! I think you should totally get this palette while it is available! As I said, only one shade was disappointing and all the rest performed so well. I loved all of the looks I came up with. Best of all, I had everything I needed in this one palette — highlight shades, transition shades, and even deeper ones for the outer corner. I am not sure if this is going to be kept on in the permanent line, but just in case…if you want it, get it while you can!
Right off, this looks like a palette best suited for very fair skintones. I know I am rather pale right now, but I still had my doubts on if I would be able to see these shades on my skintone. And while I can definitely say that I do see the product show up for me…it’s not the finish that is popular right now. The highlight reminds me of the Hourglass ones — very soft and natural. It’s not one that will blind you when you tilt your head. And to be honest, that’s the highlight I prefer. Something very natural and just brings a bit of life back to my mattified face.
The bronze shade is slightly warm, so its made to just bronze up the edges of the skin and I found it worked well for that. But, again, it looked very natural on my skin. Same with the blush — both were almost hard to detect on my skin. Once again, not what is popular on Instagram or Youtube at the moment, but it’s the makeup I prefer. 🙂 Here’s a live demo of me using the bronzer and highlighter from this palette, as well as other products in the Too Faced Sweet Peach collection.
Is It Worth the Hype?
I think that this is a beautiful palette if you like your makeup to look very natural and skin-like. But…I can’t get over the price. I was comparing it against other highlight/blush/bronzer palettes on Sephora and the ones that were comparable in price were bigger and had more pans/shades. The price for this little palette just seems way too high. :-/ So…yeah. I think it’s a nice palette, but not worth the hype and definitely not worth the price!
Not going to lie, out of all the products in the Too Faced Sweet Peach collection….I was the least excited about these oil lipglosses. You guys know I am not a lipgloss person! But, for the sake of a thorough review I’ve been using them for the past three weeks. The last week I’ve even amped it up to use them exclusively, reapplying throughout the day, and sleeping with one on at night. And…I’ve made the most interesting discovery!
My dry, flaky, winter lips have been getting progressively better with using them! Now I am not saying that these oil lipglosses are any different than other lip oils, but I am AM saying that there is something magical about hydrating your lips with oils. It really does work! I’ve been loving my lips since I’ve started wearing these daily! 😀
Okay, back to these lip oils in the Too Faced Sweet Peach collection! I honestly…don’t really like them for their color purposes. When my lips are dry the color shows up patchy and weird on my lips. They feel amazing — as I’ve already said — but the color doesn’t lay evenly on my lips and looks splotchy. I just don’t like it! I wish they were clear lip oils! Oh, and one other thing…they are sticky like a very annoying lipgloss, haha.
Is It Worth the Hype?
I honestly don’t think there was much ‘hype’ behind these…but I kinda think you should check these out. I know this sounds crazy after my previous paragraph, but hear me out! Lip oils are great for dry lips. And these are not badly priced for a highend hydrating lip oil. My suggestion would be to pick a shade that is close to your skintone and use that just as you would a lip balm. That’s what I’ve been doing with the Papa Don’t Peach shade. Since I am home I don’t care if it’s streaky or not perfectly applied, so I just twist it open throughout the day and swipe it on. I am pretty sure I’m going to speed through that tube quick!
This blush has a gorgeous shift from pink to gold and feels amazing when swatching. Very soft, pigmented — not powdery at all. This reminds me of the Milani blush in Luminosou — though one is more pinky-peach while the other looks more peachy-gold. If that makes sense. 😛
These are the days I wish I was on Youtube, lol, because I feel this swatch does NOT do the blush justice. It looks very pink here, but you can’t see the peachy/gold shift like if I was able to move my arm. It is really pretty! The color shows up nicely on the skin — more than the previous cheek palette in this collection. It’s also more pigmented. A little goes a long way. And it wears very nicely through the day. With this blush, you can either wear it very lightly, naturally, or pile it on if you like your blush to be seen from space. 😉
Is it Worth the Hype?
The price is high, but seems fair for highend — NARS, Marc Jacobs, Benefit, and Becca are all right around $30 as well. If you enjoy this shade of blush, I do think the quality is definitely there with this product. So it’s really up to your personal preference if this is worth the hype for you or not. 🙂
