Millions of Peaches, Only One Peach For Me

Peaches will always have a special place in my heart. Canned peaches that is. Let me tell you why. When I was a little girl, right after the communism ended in Poland in the early 90s getting a variety of fruits (or any products) was simply not an option. Every year for my birthday my mom would somehow manage to get a hold of canned peaches halves in a syrup, which, at that time, was a true delicacy. And even these days, although finding canned peaches or fresh peaches (which are way better than the canned ones) is not a problem anymore, I still have a lot of sentiment for peaches in a can.

That brings me to today’s post- Too Faced Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette. You already know why I love peaches and you know I love my eyeshadow palettes. I didn’t get a hold of the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette when it was first released about a year ago so when it came out as a part of a bigger collection in December, I grabbed it without giving it a second thought.

Surprisingly enough though, at first, I didn’t really care for this palette. I found the quality of the eyeshadows to be great, smooth and buttery, with very good and excellent pigmentation, I liked the variety of the shades in the palette. However, when I started playing with it, using the shades that looked the most appealing to my eyeshadow loving heart, I realized that once blended, all the shades looked exactly the same on my eyes. I started considering returning this palette as I felt it was a waste of money.

Then, I decided to use it more, try different shade combinations and before I knew it, I found myself reaching for it every day. It grew on me so much that it was the only palette I took with me a few weeks ago while going on a three day vacation.

I think that part of the reason why I love this palette so much is the peach-y smell of the eyeshadows, which I find completely addicting. I love the sturdy cute packaging and how easy the shades are to apply. Although I still find some of the shades to be very similar to each other (as you can see in the swatches below), the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette was definitely a good purchase and I am glad I decided to give it a bit more time instead of completely writing it off.

My favorite shades in the palette are: Just Peachy, Bless Her Heart,Summer Yum and Georgia.

Have you jumped on the Too Faced peach wagon yet? What are your thoughts on the eyeshadow palette and the rest of the collection? Do you own any beauty products that you didn’t care for at first and then they became your favorite?

Bonus points if you got the song reference in the title of the post. Double bonus points if you can name the band!

      I am usually horrible at song lyrics too. This song is one of Mike’s favorites and he always sings it when I use my Sweet Peach Palette (which on school days is almost every day). I wonder what it is about peaches that we like them so much and the syrup is delicious, I’d always try to sneak it a few sips!

    I love my peach palette! I’m so glad you gave it another chance and had better luck. I’ll have to get mine ready for this Spring. I did want to get the highlighter palette, but when I swatched it in person I decided it just wasn’t for me. I do love the packaging though! And the delicious peach scent!

    • Agata says:

      The peach scent is to die for. I still kind of want the Highlighter palette, the shades are really pretty but I have too many highlighters! One of the Sephora perks in the coming days/ weeks is going to be the Sweet Peach palette and a peach tote! It looks so cute!

      I am glad too. I got Chocolate Bar palette for Christmas and I still haven’t used it (#beautyblogger problems- have been so busy that I haven’t had time to take proper pictures of it).

      Now I am waiting for their Honey Palette that I saw on IG- it should be coming out soon!

    Millions of peaches, peaches for free! I love that song, but I can’t remember the name of the band right now…
    Anyways, I haven’t tried this palette, and the overall mediocre reviews on the other products in the collection made me stay away. I might grab one the lip oils though!

      I knew you’d know this song-it’s by the Presidents of the United States.

      I am really glad I kept my palette- I literally use it 5/7 days of the week, it blends so easily and has all the colors you need for an elegant, everyday look.

      I think the lip oil is one of the Sephora 100 bonus point rewards- maybe you could grab that before committing to a full size tube?

    I’m with Anne as I didn’t get the song references either. LOL! I’m not a fan of Too Faced as I think they are way too quick with releases and collabs but I know many adore the brand.

    • Agata says:

      It’s ok, I am not great on song titles/lyrics either but thanks to my bf’s music taste this one has become of my favorites.

      I think Too Faced can be a hit or miss, especially with their Christmas collections. The Sweet Peach palette is really good though and the smell is amazing! Have you smelled it?

    It’s amazing how you were able to paint that on your arm when all I can draw is stick figures, at the most. The design is lovely.
    I don’t think I’ll be picking this up because I’ve read mixed reviews but I’m happy you seem to be enjoying it! πŸ™‚
