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.
