Can’t seem to be catching a break from the cold and snow of Winter? Well, I hope my blog post will be able to cure those Winter blues! I will be discussing one of the best warm toned, peachy palettes I’ve ever purchased. Today I will be sharing swatches and my overall thoughts on the Sweet Peach eyeshadow palette by Too Faced.
I have had this palette for a while, and I have used it to make many eyeshadow looks – because of the enormous color profile of this palette, it is extremely easy to do an extremely smokey eye, or even a simplistic look with a shimmer on the lid. When I was swatching some of these shades, it was difficult to have the mattes swipe completely opaque in just one go, but with another swatch, they were good to go! A swatch also doesn’t tell someone everything about an eyeshadow color because they may perform completely strange in a swatch, but blend seamlessly on the lid. I’ll be including pictures of the swatches without flash and with flash as well so you’ll be able to see the color in both lightings!
Regarding the first column on the palette, the three shades we have are White Peach, Nectar, and Peaches ‘N Cream. White Peach is a light beige satin with yellow undertones; I had no issues swatching this or wearing it on my eyelids! It was extremely smooth and soft to the touch and was buildable. I’d give this shade an overall A. Nectar is a light-medium golden color with a frosty sheen; this shade has great pigmentation, but was easily sheered out when put on the lid – this could either be a positive or a negative depending on what you wanted to do with this color! This shade gets the grade of a B from me.Peaches ‘n Cream is a light, yellowed peach with a matte finish; it was a bit hard to swatch and did end up becoming quite powdery the more I dipped my finger into the pan. However, it blended extremely well on the lid and picked up nicely on the end of an eyeshadow brush. For this shade, I’d rank it as a B.
For the second column, we have Luscious, Cobbler and Georgia. Luscious is my favorite shade in the palette, as you can see by the amount of use that this eyeshadow pan has; it is a muted, medium coppery-brown with warm undertones and a very metallic finish. The texture of this is extremely smooth and easy to apply – although, I love using Max Fix+ in order to make this shade pop even more! I would give this shade an A. For Cobbler, I would describe this color as a medium-dark, reddish brown shade with warm undertones and a pearly sheen to it. This shade had good color payoff and was easy to blend because of the smooth texture it has. I’d rank this as an A-/B+. Georgia was another matte shade that was hard to swatch; it is a medium peachy-toned orange with warm undertones. This shade is not very pigmented when first applied to the lid, but was buildable. If you didn’t use an eyeshadow primer, the shade dragged on the lid and was very sheer and patchy. I’d give this shade a C.
Next up, we have Just Peachy, Candied Peach, and Caramelized. Just Peachy is medium toned rosy-pink with a gold finish – it looks very similar to a blush shade by NARS (which will not be named since it’s a bit inappropriate!). This shade sheered out pretty quickly on my lid and it was a bit hard to build up the color; it seemed to fade away pretty quickly. I’d give this shade a B-. Candied Peach is a medium-toned matte orange shade with a bit of pink mixed into it. I wish this color came off this way when I applied it, but unfortunately it doesn’t come out this vibrant on the eyelids. It was a bit powdery and disappointing; I’d rate it as a C+. Caramelized is a medium-dark toned bronze shade. This shade had amazing color payoff and was easy to work with – I’d give it an A!
For the fourth column, we have the shades Bless Her Heart, Bellini and Puree. Bless Her heart is a muted, medium-dark olive green shade with a sheen. It also has some deep brown undertones! This shade is extremely unique because I have nothing like it in my collection. It has good pigmentation, but was a bit dusty when I was swatching it in the pan. I’d give this shade an overall B+. Bellini is a light peachy pink with a warm, golden shimmer in it. It had good pigmentation and blended well on the lid. It also wasn’t dusty when I was swatching it. I’d give this shade an A. Puree is one of my favorite matte shades in this palette; it comes out exactly the same color that it looks like in the pan without having to build the color up. It is a medium brown with warm, reddish undertones in a matte finish. I would give this shade a B.
Second to the last row, we have the shades Tempting, Peach Pit and Summer Yum. Tempting is a deep, blackened brown with warm undertones and a sheen to it. This color was extremely smooth and was highly pigmented in one swipe. Tempting also translates onto the lid very well; I’d give this shade an overall A. Peach Pit is a dark, reddish brown had it has a pearly finish to it. It has really good pigmentation, but it was drier than other shades, causing it to be harder to blend out – if you give this shade some attention and time, you’d be able to blend it out well; I’d give Peach Pit a B overall. Summer Yum is another of my favorite mattes in the palette; it’s a medium-dark, red brown with some very warm undertones. This shade has good color payoff and blended very well – it’s easy to buildup and doesn’t turn muddy. I’d give this shade an A in my book!
Finally, we have the colors Charmed, I’m Sure, Delectable, and Talk Derby To Me. Charmed, I’m Sure is a muted medium-brown with subtle warm undertones and is a matte shade. It’s beautiful when combined with Summer Yum and Puree as a crease shade. The eyeshadow was extremely soft to the touch, but ended up being a bit powdery when applied onto the lid – I think this would perform best if you applied an eyeshadow base first and then put down the color. I’d give this shade an overall B+. Delectable is a dark plum shade with warm undertones in a matte finish. This shade is very dry – it has a dusty texture to it and caused a lot of kickback to occur in the pan when dipping a brush into it; this made it hard to use. I’d give it an overall C. Talk Derby To Me is an extraordinary shade; it is a blackened purple with bits of sparkle throughout it. It was a bit patchy to apply at first, but if you spend the time to actually pack it on, you’ll be good to go. I’d give this color an overall B-.
Overall, I’d give this palette a 4.5/5 stars! I love so many colors in this eyeshadow palette, but I do wish that a couple of the darker shades were a bit easier to blend on the lid – sometimes when you add too many of the dark shades on top of each other, they become muddy. However, the mattes blend like a dream and the shimmers are stunning. 🍑🧡
