I’m probably the last person on earth to pick up this palette but as much as I love Too Faced Cosmetics, I’ve actually not tried many of their eye shadows. I’d heard great things about the Too Faced Romantic Eye Palette, so I thought I’d start there.
It was between this and the Natural Eye Palette, but in the end there was just something really appealing about the colours of the Romantic Eye that sold me.
In particular, I was drawn to the shades Honey Moon and Cut the Cake. Also, rather than pick up another neutral, I though this seemed neutral enough with a little something extra.
So far, I’ve used the palette a handful of times and must say I’ve really been enjoying it. The shadows themselves are slightly powdery, kicking up a little when you dip your brush in, but overall, they have decent pigmentation, are fairly creamy and blend well.
The lighter shades are very close to my skin tone and don’t really show up in the swatches, but you can get an idea of the colours anyway.
I created two quick looks for you guys. The first is an easy daytime option. Minimal eyeliner (Stila’s Smudge Stick in Lionfish). I will admit it made me kind of sad that Honey Moon came across more golden than green but it’s still a lovely shade.

The second look is more “evening” appropriate, though I’d still wear it in the daytime, lol. I used Nars Via Veneto as a liner as well as Stila’s Liquid Liner (one of my all time favorite liquid liners in addition to Kat Von D).

Too Faced has also released some great Holiday Sets which have me really tempted! In particular, I’m lusting after the Melted Kiss Lip Set which is an an incredible value. For $25.00 USD you get to try out four smaller versions of the melted lipsticks (who ever goes through a whole lipstick anyway). Last I checked, it was sold out on Sephora’s website but the Melted Kisses Holiday Set is still available on the Too Faced website.
I’m also considering the Beauty Wishes Sweet Kisses Set. It’s the packaging, I tell you, so adorable! This kit retails for $34.00 USD.
I’ll probably end up picking up at least one of these. I’m further motivated by the fact that Too Faced is offering Free Shipping with purchase of any brush (use code TEDDYBEAR – Ends: October 28th).
What do you guys think of Too Faced as a brand? Interested in any of the eye shadow palettes or holiday sets? What are your recommendations?
