Too Faced has experienced huge success in 2016 with its soft launch of Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette. Sephora (Singapore and worldwide) saw a major soldout on the first few days it reached the shelves.
I missed the purchase opportunity too.
That's why when Too Faced annouced Sweet Peach is going to make a comeback with a FULL collection, everyone went crazy and waited...and waited.
THE WAIT IS OVER IN SINGAPORE!
But one question that is on the many people's mind.... IS THIS WORTH THE HYPE?
As you can see, mine is not a full collection because I paid out of my own pockets (bought from the States during my last holiday). Hence, disclaimer first: THIS IS NOT A FULL REVIEW on the full collection. This post portrays a brief and honest first impressions of the two items I have in my stash at the moment.
SWEET PEACH GLOW Highlighting Palette (SGD62)
I swatched the whole collection back in New York's Sephora stores earlier this month. Although I have heard some negative reviews on this highlighter palette, I went with my gut and purchased it.
The peach-infused scent just gets to you... #resistanceisfutile. As for the "skin-loving ingredients" as per its claims, I couldn't be sure. The list sure is a long one.
Texture-wise, it feels smooth...not buttery-smooth, but good enough. The pigmentation is a little lighter than usual Too Faced blushers/highlighters, but this could be a plus point if you're looking for something more natural.
This palette is warm-toned and suitable for almost everyone, unless you are not into shimmers. All three shades contains fine shimmers which illuminates the skin subtly. The highlighter is really pretty in real life and very visible despite it not showing up as well in photos here. The bronzer is more pale than regular bronzers and it definitely wouldn't work well as sculpting powder. However, when you layer over the coral blusher in the pan, the duo pairs perfectly and a natural glow instantly endows the face!
Keyword here: Natural.
If you're looking for a Westernised, more obvious type of strobing/contouring effect, then this palette is not for you. Personally, I love it! It brings colours back to my pale face. I supposed fairer skin types who wants to look warmer will enjoy this palette most.
CREAMY PEACH OIL LIP GLOSS (SGD29)
Total of 8 shades
The reason why I picked up only one lip gloss is because of the dominance of nude-pink shades in the entire collection - I have too many nudes & pinks. There are only two brighter colours; and out of the two, only Tickle-Me-Peach managed to tickle my heart.
This lip gloss smells and tastes so divine, to the point even if you're like me who don't really like the shade range, you will want to pick up at least one!
Another plus point : this lip gloss moisturizes the lips supremely well. The moisture stays for a long time, even after the color wore off.
For my shade of choice, it is melon orange which fades down to a soft coral stain. As with other lip glosses, this couldn't last through a meal so touchups are necessary. Trust me, you will look forward to frequent touchups! Yummy.
If I had to answer the question of worth (and whether you should buy any), I'd say...
Get it. At least the eyeshadow palette. (Which I am going to score on sephora.sg, as we are speaking...)
- You'll never find another makeup line with such lovely peachy scent or taste.
- Product quality is excellent, like most Too Faced makeup.
- The package is too cute to resist!
- Your vanity needs it. (Both your vanity table and your inner-vanity, a.k.a vainess)
The last point is the most important. Ahem.
Too Faced Sweet Peach Collection is available online in Singapore now on sephora.sg.
