This is the only palette I've ever owned where I have actually used all the shades. I love the fact that it comes with little cards that tell you how to achieve a certain look and where to put the shadow -this is something that I have always been bad at. I actually bought this out of determination to become better at eyeshadow! So far it's working and I can see that my skill has improved. It's such a pretty palette too and fun to play with. Do not regret spending $50 on this and I'm glad I bought this instead of Naked3,
I tend to stick with more demure, classic or nude eyeshadow palettes but had to have this for my collection (more due to my obsessive nature!!!). This palette is so much fun to use for a real Hollywood Glam look when going out with my hubby. I love the rich, intense colors and haven't had issues with fall-out but do adjust my make-up routine when using darker, more vibrant eyeshadow colors and will apply my under eye make-up afterwards. I really like all the color sets but do tend to use the purple combination since it makes my green eyes POP like crazy. I like this and have purchased additional palettes for gifts for my nieces and son's girlfriend.
If you're looking for a "gilded" eye look (not glittery but shiny) AND extra bonus features - this is it. When I first used it I made the mistake of using too much when applying. When you use TOO much of this on your brush with this eyeshadow - it will fall over over your eyes/cheeks - even with primer - I had to practice on my hand a few times to get a feel for how to use this; it's not like most eyeshadows I have used before. You have to blend it into your skin - once you get it on right - it's staying! Even without primer (which it comes with). The colors are intense, while not being overpowering. This palette is definitely not "matted" or "muted". One could wear this to work or out - adjusting eyeliner intensity (which it comes with also) and darkness of shadows used (comes with color directions for night/day). My favorite colors are the "Bombshell" ensemble - the grey/blues really seem to make green eyes "pop", but I enjoy the entire array of colors and mix/match all the time. Also, there is a great instructional video on Sephora.com .
So far I have tried all the three day time looks on the cards and they looked really nice. The cards are really handy. The shades are beautiful and easy to blend. I like this palette very much, it's my first Too faced product ever. I don't even mind the crazy fallout with this. Usually I apply thick coat of moisturizer under my eyes before using glittery shadows and when I'm done I just wipe it off and all the fallout goes with it. My undereyes get moisturized meanwhile I do my makeup :) The packaging is awsome!
I wasn't sure if I would like this due to the mixed reviews. I got lucky because I absolutely love it! The colors are all so gorgeous. Yes, they are shimmery (a couple glitters) but some of us like shimmery colors! I had little to no fallout with a primer (UDPP) and was able to create several beautiful looks using this. This really is similar to Japanese eye shadows in the texture of it. I've found that the best way to apply is with your fingers or a sponge tip applicator and pat it on (don't swipe.) If you like only matte shades, then run from this.
I REALLY wanted to love this. :( I like the sturdy yet sleek packaging, and the colors are so beautiful to look at. I also love how Too Faced gives you the picture cards with guidelines on how to create specific looks with the palette. But this palette was overall just a huge disappointment, in my opinion. The shades which looked so vibrant had very little color payoff on my eyelids. All it gave me was a sheer wash of color with glitter that fell all over my face and got in my eyes. & I tried a variety of eyeshadow primers underneath. The shadows seemed to irritate my eyes as well, and I do not have sensitive eyes. I switch between wearing contacts & glasses. The included eyeliner made my eyes extremely irritated & watery, & I have never had this issue with any other eye makeup product, ever. I can't imagine wearing it with my contacts, as it was getting in my eyes & clouding my vision with glasses on. I'm sure with contacts in it would have been even worse. This palette is very overpriced for the quality of the products in contains. I did like the Too Faced shadow insurance (eyeshadow primer.) This is to date the ONLY product I have ever returned to Sephora.
This was the first Too Faced palette that I ever bought and it's still one of my favorites. I have sensitive eyes so I am always a little wary buying a new brand but this one does not make my eyes itch even with the shimmer and tiny glitters! I take it with me when I travel because there is a look for every outfit in here. I love bright colors and shimmery shades (on my eyes but not my face) but I'm not a huge fan of glitter (it. gets. everywhere.)- and this palette is perfect. If applied correctly, there is very little fallout. I use a matte nude primer for day looks as it will tone down the color payoff, and for intensifying the look I use a coordinating colored primer (or colored eyeliner works too) and dab and press on the shadow with an eyeshadow sponge rather than using a brush and then blending with my shading brushes. I love the versatility! The liner it comes with is super creamy and lasts all day once it sets. You can smudge it after applying but after it sets, it doesn't budge and I live in a very hot and humid region and have oily skin. The only thing I don't like about the liner is it's not a really fine point, and I usually have to sharpen it for each use because of its creamy consistency- it seems to deposit more product than a pencil with a firmer texture. It is a very vibrant black though, which I like.
Oh my! I LOVE this pallet. Such beautiful colors, very soft shadows, blend like a dream, one of my favorite pallets at the moment. Love Too Faced eye shadows/ products.
I had been eyeing this palette for a while, but was hesitant to pull the trigger due to the mixed reviews. I typically wear either purple, brown, or black eyeshadows, so this was perfect for me. Ulta having 20% off on Too Faced is what made me finally commit to purchasing. I don't regret purchasing it at all, but I see why some people are unsatisfied with it. I definitely am not one for a natural look (for reference, I would NEVER purchase UD's Naked palette). If you enjoy getting all dolled up, this won't disappoint.
After reading so many reviews of this palette stating that it was much to shimmery, I was reluctant to buy, and considering this palette could not be found in Aus I could really only go off online reviews and swatches.However the purples in this palette kept calling my name, so I caved in and bought it. Contrary to many of the reviews i have read I personally do not find this palette to be completely full of shimmer shadows. Yes it is shimmery but there are also a few metallic finishes which personally I find more wearable then full on shimmer. I love the texture of these shadows, they are so creamy that they almost look wet in the pan. One of the main things I love about this palette is that the shadows can be used wet or dry, depending on which you chose will determined the overall look of how these shadows look on your eyelids. I personally love the texture of this palette much more then I like urban decays shimmer shadows. I don't find these shadows at all muddy like urban decays. The only downfall I can find is the lack of matte eyeshdows! The only way of getting a professional looking eye is to mix these shadows with some matte from other palettes or brands. Substituting matte colors is not a problem for me, let's face it we all have a million other eyeshadow laying around. Of course this palette is not an everyday palette, it is not safe for work and I personally would not wear this during the day. In my opinion this is a clubbing or night out palette. So when thinking of buying this palette I think you really need to to decide if it fits all your purposes. Please don't buy this thinking you will be able to wear it everyday or be able to make a complete look with it. You will be disappointed if you purchase it for those reasons, but if you are looking for a glam palette that will take you through the night then look no further, you will not be disappointed .
The palette also comes with a mini primer (not my favorite) and an waterproof eyeliner. The eyeliner worked wonderfully on the lash line but I did not find that it stayed on my wet line very well.
