WORTH THE HYPE? TOO FACED SWEET PEACH
If you weren't lucky enough to score the Sweet Peach shadow palette by Too Faced the first time around, fret not because the brand has just rereleased it. Expanding on the collection, there is now a blush, highlighting palette and peach oil lip gloss that comes in 8 shades.
Getting my Peach palette during the original launch was my own version of mini-makeup-hell, aka; calling 3 local Sephora's before being able to locate a store that still had them in stock. I love the palette so much that I've barely used it for fear of running out so I'm glad to see it stocked again. On the other hand, considering I did buy mine under the guise of it being "limited edition", it's a bit annoying as well. Regardless, I'm glad to see the line has expanded and I did go out to pick up a few goodies to go with my peachy shadows.
TOO FACED SWEET PEACH COLLECTION
The one that started the craze, The Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette ($59) comes in 18 flattering peach scented shades.
GET THE LOOK
I used Georgia (light peach), Candied Peach (bright shimmery peach) and Summer Yum (peachy-brown) in the crease of my eyes. I popped Bless Her Heart (golden moss), in the outer and inner corners of the eyes and Bellini (gilded peach) in the centre of my eyes. I used a green eyeliner, from Make Up For Ever in shade I-34, on my waterline to accentuate the peach tones.
The packaging is as cute as the shadows are delish. If you like warm shades, you're gonna love these.
If you like sheer, shimmery, natural blush then you're gonna love Papa Don't Preach, $38. I typically go for highly pigmented matte blush and this is the total opposite. My skin is a light-medium olive shade and I find this blush is too subtle. I layered bronzer under mine to give it more oomph.
The shades are sheer and very moisturizing since they're infused with peach oil. I'm wearing Tickled-Me-Peach, $24, the darkest shade from the collection. It reads like sheer deep peach shade on the lips. This gloss smells and tastes peachy so if you're sensitive to scents, beware.
The Sweet Peach collection is adorable but also pricey. If you have to pick one thing up, let it be the Sweet Peach eyeshadow palette. The colours are beautiful, unique and diverse enough to suit lots of skin tones.
Skip the blush if you're above a medium skin tone since it's super sheer and might not show up on your skin.
The glosses are fun, but nothing special at the end of the day. Save your money and look for similar colours and comparable formulas at the drugstore instead.
As for the highlight palette, I'd say test it out at Sephora before brining it home since 2 of the 3 products I tried where hardly impressive.
