Probably the most anticipated makeup release for 2016 was the Too Faced Sweet Peach eye shadow palette. This palette was released two different times, due to the high demand. I managed to get one the first time around, and to say I was excited is probably an understatement. I’m pretty sure I was quite the spectacle at Ulta, hahaha. I love peachy colors, and actual peaches are one of my favorite fruits, so when I heard about this palette, I was VERY intrigued. Ulta had a test palette out, and after swatching some of the shadows, I was sold, particularly because of the colors Bellini and Just Peachy. I mean, this palette is just L-O-V-E.
I also LOVED that this palette was scented like peaches, but it’s not a natural peach scent. It’s more like a candied peach scent, but not overpowering (unless you just happen to have a sensitive sniffer). The one con I will say for this palette is that I felt like the lighter shades (White Peach, Peaches & Cream, and Georgia) do not how up very well on me. And again, it could be the formula, or it could just be that these shades are not as noticeable on brown skin tones. It doesn’t stop me from using them, but I don’t use them as much as the other shades. Here are the swatches, which I did by columns, instead of by rows.
All of the metallic shades in this palette are gorgeous, I love them. The one green shade, Bless Her Heart, is one of my favorites. It’s interesting though, because it can almost take on a greenish-gold color under different light settings. My favorite transition shades are Puree, and Summer Yum. Charmed, I’m Sure is another good transition color, but I usually go for Puree or Summer Yum when I use this palette. Now, let’s get into the look I decided to do with this peachy beauty!
Today, I decided to do a peach halo eye. I do a lot of halo looks, it’s probably my favorite style. I’m going to do something a little different today, and give a picture tutorial. 🙂 First off, here are all of the colors I used: Puree (blue box), Candied Peach (yellow box), Just Peachy (green box), Nectar (pink box)
Sometimes I do my face makeup before my eye makeup, and sometimes after. Today, I decided to go ahead and get it out of the way.
I look a lot more awake after makeup, lulz.
Next, I primed my eyes, and took Puree into my crease with my Elf crease brush. Then I blended it out with the Elf blending brush.
Next, I took Candied Peach into my crease as well, and blended it out, using the same brushes I just mentioned.
Moving on to my lids, I dipped into Just Peachy, which is GORGEOUS metallic, and used a flat lid brush to put that on the inner and outer parts of my lid. After that, I took the shade Nectar into the center of my lid. I went back with the blending brush and gently blended the crease and my lid to get rid of any harsh lines. UGH, IT’S SO PRETTY!! ❤
After that, I lined my lower lash line with Just Peachy and Nectar, to make it match my lid. Then I did my winged liner using the Revlon Colorstay Liquid Eye Pen, and then I lined my water line with my NYC City Proof 24 Hour eyeliner pencil.
For lashes, I used these eBay roulette lashes from Japan. I LOVE these lashes. I bought one pack to see if I liked them, and when I found out that I did, I ordered more. They have an invisible lash band, and it’s awesome.
Finally, on my lips I used this L.A. Girl Lip Paint in the shade Tango.
Annnnnd, this is the finished look!
“I feel pretty, oh so pretty…”
There we go, a nice, peachy, shimmery look! This palette is like the love of my life, I swear. And I squealed uncontrollably when I found out that Too Faced was going to make this permanent like their other large palettes!! Hope you all enjoyed this look, I’ll see you soon!! ❤
