Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes

Too Faced is one of my favorite brands because I love many of their products and they usually have some of the cutest packaging. So when their Just Peachy Mattes palette was released I pretty much purchased it within seconds online. I feel like people were quite torn over the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette but I personally love that one, so that was reason enough for me to get excited about another peachy palette. I also really like that this one only comes with matte shades. And not to mention it smells heavenly like peaches and cream!

As much as I love glitter and sparkles nice matte eyeshadows are essential to creating the perfect eye makeup. You cannot do a look without at least one or two good matte shades, so I love me a good all matte palette. I especially like to use only matte eyeshadows on days when I really want to tone down my eye makeup and keep it subtle and natural. Now I already own a few all matte eyeshadow palette but none like the Peachy Mattes. I absolutely love the color selection this palettes has to offer.

The Peachy Mattes definitely has more peachy shades than the Sweet Peach palette but it still has a big enough variety of shades to be a fairly versatile palette. You can create very subtle and simple day-time or work appropriate looks as well as dramatic going out looks, which is something I always look for in a palette. Additionally I really enjoy the packaging. I almost feel like they sort of updated their packaging from prior collections. It’s still cute but more sleek, which makes the palette look a bit more luxurious than some of the other Too Faced palettes. It also comes with a nice sized mirror and since the packaging itself is very sturdy it’s perfect for traveling or weekend trips.

But now onto the actual eyeshadows. So far I’ve liked most of the matte eyeshadows in the Too Faced palettes I already own. I always thought they weren’t anything special but nice nonetheless. The eyeshadows in this palette however I love. They’re so nicely pigmented, blend so easily and last all day.

I feel like this would also be a great palette for people that are only just getting into makeup because it comes with such a great selection of matte shades, which are so easy to work with. All the colors in this palette go so well with each other, which makes this palette a lot less overwhelming and makes it super easy for everyone to create pretty looks.

As I already mentioned it was definitely the color selection that drew me in with this palette. I love the warm toned peachy shades but I think my favorite shade out of the entire palette would have to be Peach Sangria. It’s such a gorgeous berry shade and perfect for fall in my opinion. Peach Tea and Fresh-Picked make lovely transition colors and Just Ripe is my favorite to darken up the outer part of my crease. I love Peaches and Cream as a lid color and Peach Tart in my crease. Although I would not have necessarily needed two very bright highlighting shades there is not one shade in this palette I don’t use because I like them all. Fortunately the quality in the eyeshadows is very consistent in my opinion, which is why there honestly isn’t a shade that has disappointed me.

Ever since I’ve gotten this palette I’ve been using it non-stop and I would recommend it to anyone that’s looking for a good matte eyeshadow palette because I genuinely think it’s a great add to anyone’s makeup collection!

Too Faced Boudoir Eyes Palette

SAMSUNG CSC

About a month ago I added this little beauty to my make up collection and I’ve absolutely been loving playing around with it. I knew that I wanted to get one of the Too Faced palettes but I originally wanted the Natural Eyes one. After thinking about if for a while and looking at the different palettes I did, however, went with the Boudoir Eyes one because I already have quite a few pallettes including lots of natural eyeshadows and this one still has neutrals but with a bit of a twist.

But first let’s talk about the packaging. I mean, how adorable does this little gem look? The palette has quite a girly and cute design and it comes in a metallic box. It’s not big and chunky, which makes it quite perfect for traveling. I’m such a sucker for pretty packaging and Too Faced as a brand seems to always have some of the prettiest things out there. Just looking at their products makes me want to buy them all. I know that’s bad but I just can’t help myself.

When you open the palette the eyeshadows are divided into sections ranging from highlighting shades to really dark shades. The pallet comes with a little guide book, that gives you tips or inspiration for make up looks but once you remove the little booklet you find a little mirror under it. The size of the mirror isn’t all that amazing and there are palettes that come with better sized mirrors but it’s definitely enough for checking your eye make up or for touching it up.

Now on to the important things. The actual product! I pretty much love all of the shades this palette has to offer. The range goes from highlighting shades to neutrals to dark ones, you can use perfectly for a smokey eye or evening make up. Another plus is the great quality of the eyeshadows. They are so easy and soft to apply, which makes them really blendable. None of them has been irritating in any way and I have quite sensitive eyes, so that’s always good.

Moving on to the different shades:

In The Buff

This is a nice highlighting shade though not my favorite as it can be a bit chalky and yellowy looking but on certain skin types this would be perfect.

Satin Sheets

This might be one of my favourites from the palette. Satin Sheets is a bit of a peachy gold shade with a bit of shimmer to it. It’s absolutely beautiful and perfect for an every day make up look.

Birthday Suit

Birthday Suit is more of a champaign bronzed shimmery shade, which is a really pretty shade for a very natural look.

Fuzzy Hand Cuffs

This one is a light brown matte eyeshadow, which is great for in your crease if you are going for a very soft look and only want to create a bit more definition.

Sugar Walls

Sugar Walls is a bit similar to birthday suit but a few shades darker.

Lap Dance

Lap Dance is another darker shimmery brown, which is great for within your crease and looks so pretty when you blend it out.

Voulez-Vous

This one is such a unique shade. It’s a bit of a greyish dark purple. I really love this shade because you can create the perfect somkey eye with this and it adds a little bit of a twist with the dark purple.

Garter Belt

This one is more of a greyish brown and mother matte as well. Another grade shade for an evening eye make up.

French Tickler

French Tickler is another shade I think is so cool. It’s black but it contains these gold shimmer particles, which makes it such a unique black in my eyes. I also love to use this instead of an eyeliner when I’m going for a softer look.

I know I’m not the best at describing eyeshadows but I hope this still is a little helpful. Now I have some swatches for you. Some colors were a bit harder for my camera to pick up but I hope you can still get a good idea of what the different shades look like. The shades are in order of my description.

To sum it all up this palette is definitely one I would recommend. The packaging is lovely, the eyeshadows are of good quality and since the palette is quite handy it’s great for traveling or when you go stay over night somewhere as the shade range allows you to go from a natural every day look to a fancy evening look in no time.
