Too Faced Sweet Peach Collection (Photos and Thoughts)

Like many a makeup enthusiast (addict), I waited up until the wee hours on December 14th to get my hands on Too Faced’s Sweet Peach Collection.

I purchased the (cult mania) Sweet Peach Eyehsdow Palette, Papa Don’t Peach Blush, the Sweet Peach Glow Kit, and the Lip Oil in Tickle-Me-Peach.

The eyeshadow formula is very comparable with Too Faced’s full-sized chocolate bar palettes, so if you like those, you’re not in for any nasty surprises. They’re finely-milled, soft, buttery, and non-powdery.

The blush is a deep, bronzy peach, and it doesn’t have glitter, but it has a satin finish (definitely not matte). Would work well on deeper skintones. I had to use a light hand not to overdo it.

The Glow Kit is absolutely phenomenal. Seriously. The neutral bronzer is matte, so it makes a good contour, and the highlight is shimmery without being insane. This kit has its own blush, a slightly lighter pinky peach that can be built up.

I only ordered one lip oil because I’m not really a gloss fan, but it’s full coverage, smells amazing, and is hydrating like a balm. 

The peach scent is strong with all products, and they’re made with real peaches, so if you’re allergic or not into that, definitely give it a miss.

Here are some photos, including a quick look I did to try all the products. I’m happy to say there’s not a dud in the bunch. Highly recommend.

The Sweet Peach Collection is available at (The eyeshadow palette is now permanent; some of the rest is limited [Too Faced has been weirdly confusing about this], so hurry)

I was not compensated for this review, and I purchased these products with my own money. 


Urban Decay Moondust Palette Everyday Makeup Look

Eyes: Urban Decay Moondust in Lightyear on lids; Moondust Specter in inner corners; matte taupe from Naked 2 in crease (I can’t remember which one-oops); Marc Jacobs fineliner in Blacquer on upper lash line; Benefit Roller Lash mascara 

(Note: The Moondust palette works best if you use 1-2 colors at a time and let them be the stars. If you use more than that, you risk getting really muddy and having a glitter bomb on your face.)

Lips: Lipstick Queen Saint Pinky Nude base; Lipstick Queen Butterfly Ball in Smitten on top (My lips are almost colorless on their own, so even sheer lip products show up strongly; on many people, this combo would show up as more sheer and less ruddy)

Face: Cover FX Natural Finish foundation in N10; Cover FX illuminating loose powder

Cheeks: Benefit Bella Bamba blush (lightly); Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer in Luminous Bronze Light (very lightly)

Misc: Brows – Benefit Brow Zings in #2; Concealer – L’Oreal Magic Lumi Highlighting Concealer in Fair
