Too Faced x NikkieTutorials The Power of Makeup Palette

Too Faced x NikkieTutorials The Power of Makeup Palette
Too Faced x NikkieTutorials The Power of Makeup Palette

Too Faced x NikkieTutorials The Power of Makeup Palette ($56.00 for ) contains a slew of products for the eyes and cheeks. It’s a decent palette, but the eyeshadows have room for improvement, as they are not consistent. They also need to be applied over a primer in order to have decent or better pigmentation, to last at least eight hours, and for blending as some of the shades are drier and tended to sheer out when applied. Without primer, they have a more faded appearance and most of the shades lasted six to seven hours. I think the brand should have included their Glitter Insurance, instead of their standard Eyeshadow Primer (but worth reiterating is that Too Faced touts their eyeshadows as highly pigmented and long-wearing as a formula), because three of the eyeshadows, plus the glitter, absolutely need an adhesive base or else it is a one-way ticket to Fallout City.

As a lot of readers have noted in the initial launch post, the palette looks a lot like every other holiday palette Too Faced has released. I struggled a bit myself trying to pair the shades together, as it didn’t feel as cohesive as you might have expected, and the drier, more crumbly textures of the metallic shades didn’t blend well with the thinner matte shades. The two blushes and bronzers are permanent shades, though Justify My Love is a much darker, brighter, and cooler-toned shade in the palette than my single (by a lot). The highlighter, Champagne Truffle, is actually an eyeshadow from another palette, so you might have that already in your stash.

Ivy is a pale, muted white with a matte finish. It had a very smooth, finely-milled consistency with some excess powder that would kick up in the pan. It is chalky against my skin tone, for reference, and I tried to mix it with Painkiller to make it a workable brow bone highlight on my skin tone. On fairer skin tones, it should work better. It lasted six hours on me before disappearing. Urban Decay Bump (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Gesso (P, $16.00) is brighter (95% similar). Viseart Cool Matte #1 (P) is more muted (95% similar). Sephora Swan Song (P, $10.00) is warmer (95% similar). Wet 'n' Wild Three's a Party #1 (LE, $2.29) is warmer (95% similar).

Sugar Coated is a light pink with warmer undertones paired with a frosted finish and silver sparkle. It had good pigmentation, though the texture was drier and tended to sheer out on its own. The glittery bits blended away from the base color, so this shade would need an adhesive base to perform well. The color lasted seven hours before creasing and had fallout. Too Faced Pink Frosting (LE, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). Dior Garden Pastels #3 (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Harpooned Heart (LE, $16.00) is warmer (95% similar). Dior Rose Garden #3 (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). Sephora Ex-boyfriend (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). Shiseido Mist (WT 901) (P, $25.00) is more shimmery (95% similar).

Frosted Yum is a muted, light silver with neutral-to-warm undertones and a metallic, sparkly finish. The glitter of this one also separated away from the base color, so it didn’t stay where it was initially applied and resulted in fall out over time. The base color was mostly opaque and wore well for seven and a half hours before creasing. The dryness of the powder made it harder to blend with the matte shades in the palette. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Parisienne #3 (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). Sugarpill Grand Tiara (P, $13.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Make Up For Ever ME116 Silver (P, $21.00) is lighter (95% similar). Rouge Bunny Rouge Vivacious Maguari (P, $19.00) is less shimmery (95% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Irresistible is a sparkling, medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a metallic finish. Like the previous three shades, the glitter doesn’t stick to the base, which resulted in the sparkles transferring beyond the base color and would fall below the lid over time. I would highly recommend a glitter primer or an adhesive base to work with this palette. This shade lasted for six and a half hours before creasing. bareMinerals Standing O (P) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Treasure Hunt (DC, $18.00) is lighter, less shimmery (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Gold (LE) is lighter, less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Night Thrill (LE, $22.00) is warmer (90% similar). Chanel Eclaire (P, $29.50) is less shimmery (90% similar).

Urban Decay 1987 (LE, $19.00) is darker, less shimmery (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Painkiller is a muted, medium brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation with a very soft, finely-milled consistency that applied well to bare skin, but it did not work well with the more shimmery shades in the palette as it was too thin and dusty, so it did not layer well. This shade started to fade after seven and a half hours of wear. Too Faced Chocaholic (LE, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). Too Faced Cobblestone (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). theBalm C3 (LE, $16.00) is warmer (95% similar). Illamasqua Heroine (P) is lighter (95% similar).

Lancome Woody Bar (LE, $19.00) is warmer, lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Makeup & Chill is a deep, reddish brown with a matte finish. Though the powder was silky and soft, it was also powdery in the pan, so it kicked up a lot of powder in the pan with even a soft touch of a brush. It applied well to bare skin with full, opaque coverage that wore well for seven and a half hours–it’s just a shade you have to use carefully to avoid initial fall out. Ciate Queen Bee (LE) is lighter (95% similar). LORAC Bark (LE, $19.00) is warmer, lighter (90% similar). Tarte Siren (LE) is darker, more shimmery (90% similar). Anastasia Violeta (LE, $12.00) is lighter (90% similar). Smashbox Java (P) is warmer, darker (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Cocoa (P, $22.00) is warmer (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Bittersweet (LE, $28.00) is warmer (85% similar). Inglot #327 (P, $6.00) is warmer (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Bark (P, $28.00) is darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Mystic Hour is a deep bluish-teal with a frosted finish. This shade had a lot of potential, but it fades immediately after applying–it just doesn’t retain that depth and intensity it has in the pan on the lid. Even over Too Faced’s primer, it was still underwhelming; I would try using it wet and over a glitter primer as the drier, frosted consistency would likely benefit from both changes. This shade started to crease after seven hours of wear. Make Up For Ever ME230 Peacock Blue (P, $21.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Too Faced Mint Chip (LE, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). Giorgio Armani #18 (P, $32.00) is cooler, less shimmery (90% similar). bareMinerals Controversy (LE) is darker (90% similar). MAC Pre-Packaged (LE, $16.00) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Guerlain Les Aquas #3 (P) is brighter, less shimmery (90% similar). Sephora Stormy Seas (113) (LE, $13.00) is cooler (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Wham Bam is a bright, medium-dark purple with warmer, pink undertones and a soft, pearly sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a soft, lightly drier texture that blended out fairly well and didn’t seem to fade immediately like Mystic Hour did. The color wore well for seven hours on me. Coloured Raine Fetish (P, $6.99) is darker (95% similar). MAC Selena (LE, $16.00) is warmer, lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Flash (P, $19.00) is cooler, lighter (85% similar). MAC Butterfly Party (LE, $32.50) is more shimmery (85% similar). Sugarpill Hysteric (P, $13.00) is lighter, more shimmery (85% similar). Tarina Tarantino Violet Storm #5 (LE) is cooler (85% similar). Fyrinnae Snowboarding (P, $6.75) is cooler, brighter, lighter (85% similar). Illamasqua Trance (LE) is cooler, lighter (85% similar). MAC Zip Me Up (LE, $16.00) is more muted, lighter, less shimmery (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Wanted is a deep black with a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage with a firmer texture, which made it harder to get color out of but also seemed to impede blending, as it applied unevenly and was difficult to pull and diffuse from wherever the powder initially landed. The color had noticeable fading after six and a half hours of wear. Urban Decay Blackjack (P, $19.00) is cooler (95% similar). Too Faced Stiletto (LE, $16.00) is more muted, darker (95% similar). Divergent Dauntless Ink (LE) is lower quality, warmer (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty About Last Night No. 12 (LE) is cooler (95% similar).

I Will Always Love You is a bright, medium coral with warm undertones and a soft, golden shimmer. You can find my original review for the formula and shade here for a more detailed look at claims and the like. Suffice to say, this wore a lot like the permanent version I have, but it appeared to be a bit less shimmery and had stronger pink tones while wearing the same (eight and a half hours but way short of the 16-hour wear claimed). Too Faced Papa Don't Peach (LE) is lighter, more shimmery (95% similar). NYX Synthetica (P, $7.99) is more shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Reflex (82) (LE, $45.00) is darker (95% similar).

Justify My Love is a bright, bold, cotton candy pink with a satiny finish. It is much, much brighter and darker with stronger blue undertones than the permanent version (read my original review here). It is also more pigmented, so that’s an upside, with a slightly looser consistency. The color wore well for nine hours, a half hour longer than the permanent version did for me. Colour Pop Mochi (DC, $8.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Colour Pop Thumper (P, $8.00) is cooler, less shimmery (90% similar). theBalm Down Boy (P, $21.00) is less shimmery (90% similar).

Chocolate Soleil is a muted, medium-dark brown with subtle, warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. The powder was firmly packed into the pan, which made it difficult to work with as I struggled to chip away at it to get any color coverage. For swatching alone, I had to scrape away the top layer to get enough pigment to show up on my arm. I had to do the same to apply it to my face. It was unexpected, as Too Faced includes this shade in palettes regularly, and it’s typically quite soft and silky. The color lasted for eight hours on me. Tarte Park Ave. Princess #2 (LE) is lighter, less shimmery (90% similar). IT Cosmetics Warm Radiance (P, $34.00) is cooler, lighter, more shimmery (90% similar).

Champagne Truffle is a light, pinky-white with a golden sheen. It had semi-sheer color coverage that was buildable to mostly opaque pigmentation. It seemed less pigmented than the previous palette version (where it was released as an eyeshadow). The color lasted for seven and a half hours before separating on my cheeks. Disney by Sephora Treasures Untold (LE)(100% similar). Make Up For Ever S502 White Sand (P, $21.00) is warmer, darker (95% similar).

Black is a deep black with cool undertones and a satiny sheen. The Sketch Marker formula is supposed to be a long-wearing, waterproof, and vivid liquid eyeliner. It was very pigmented with a smooth, fluid consistency that applied easily and did not seem too watery nor did it apply unevenly. The tip had enough flex that you could maneuver around the curves of the eyelid without issue. The formula takes a bit of time to dry down and set, so if using on the upper lash line, I’d keep my eye shut for about 20 seconds after applying if you can. It did not bleed when I tested it under water. It lasted for eight hours on me. Illamasqua Abyss (P, $27.50)(100% similar). Bobbi Brown Really Black (LE, $24.00)(100% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Deeper (01) (P, $55.00) is darker (95% similar). Urban Decay Perversion (P, $20.00) is cooler (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Blacquer (P, $25.00) is less glossy (95% similar).

Glitterally appears as a light silver glitter that reflects pink, blue, and gold as it catches the light. It is a loose glitter, so it has virtually no claims on its own. It is a product that needs to be used with something else–adhesive, mixed with gloss, etc. in order to adhere and wear for any length of time. If you apply it on bare skin, it will just dust away. None of that is a criticism, and as there’s not much to rate it on, you will not find this one rated.

Too Faced Honey Bear & I Want Candy La Cremes

Too Faced Honey Bear La Creme Lipstick
Too Faced Honey Bear La Creme Lipstick

Too Faced Honey Bear La Creme Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy plum with warm undertones and fine gold shimmer paired with a lightly glossy finish. It had a creamy, melty consistency that’s emollient and very comfortable to wear, but it does move around a little more than your average lipstick does. It lasted four hours on me, and it was particularly hydrating while worn. MAC Amor Prohibido (LE, $17.00) is lighter, less shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Strip (DC, $22.00) is warmer (90% similar). Giorgio Armani #526 (P, $32.00) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Ramblin' Rose (P, $17.00) is less glossy (90% similar).

Too Faced I Want Candy La Creme Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a bright, medium pink with warm undertones and a fine silver shimmer paired with a glossy finish. The texture was lightweight, thin without being clingy, and had a moderate slip. I saw that some color welled into my lip lines, but this wasn’t that noticeable from a normal viewing distance.

(As a note, I Want Candy seems to be MIA from most retailers–I was able to find it still listed on Ulta, but it is out of stock, so I’m guessing it’s been discontinued.)

Formula Overview

Too Faced La Creme Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.11 oz.) is supposed to be a creamy, hydrating, and pigmented lipstick. The majority of the range has a signature texture: lightweight, creamy, moderately slippery, and feels like it melts against the lips. The color payoff varies from semi-opaque to fully opaque, though some of the glittery shades are sheerer (but packed with glitter). The formula is usually hydrating on me with average wear (about four hours).

Too Faced Totally Cute Eyeshadow Palette

Too Faced Totally Cute Eyeshadow Palette

Too Faced Totally Cute Eyeshadow Palette ($36.00 for 0.39 oz.) is a new, limited edition nine-pan eyeshadow palette with several neutral shades and a few pops of color. One of the selling points is that the palette has a soft pink exterior that was designed for you to decorate with stickers, which are included. (If you purchased directly from Too Faced, you’ll get an additional sticker sheet.) I wish I could say it was a decent palette, but I actually found it surprisingly difficult to apply, even when I used it with Too Faced’s Shadow Insurance Primer. The difference in application with primer was minor, while the longevity was the most improved by primer. The mattes were thinner, and they didn’t blend as well with the denser, metallic shades. The standout shades were Clover and Storm Cloud, but shades like Shooting Star, I Love TF, and Meow! were more time-consuming to use.

Double Scoop is a pale, yellowed beige with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was very silky and smooth, but it kicked up excess product. On my coloring, it is chalky and doesn’t work as a brow bone highlighter (too stark) — that doesn’t impact the rating, it’s just a note I’m passing on. It started to fade after seven hours of wear.

Bunny Fu-Fu is a medium-dark, burnt orange with warm undertones and a matte finish. While very finely-milled, it was dusty and thin to work with, which made it very hard to use on bare skin, and even using Too Faced’s Primer didn’t fix it, as it didn’t adhere as well as it should have. I had some fall out when used, as some of the eyeshadow would dust and sheer out (even after tapping off excess prior to getting the brush near my lid). It lasted for six and a half hours on me before fading. LORAC Tangerine (LE, $19.00)(100% similar). Inglot #123R Top (P, $6.00) is lighter (95% similar). Anastasia Isabel (LE, $12.00) is more muted, darker (90% similar). Kat Von D Analogue (LE) is darker (90% similar). Kat Von D Rust (Contour) (P) is darker (90% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Chocolate Donut is a deep, slightly muted plum with warm, brown undertones and a mostly matte finish. (There appeared to be subtle sparkle strewn thorugh the pan of product, but I really didn’t detect it when I used it.) The texture was soft and smooth, but a little dusty, and again, it tended to sheer out and did not apply evenly on bare skin. It had semi-opaque coverage, and it was not buildable beyond that (it just kept sheering out!). The color faded noticeably after seven hours. LORAC Burgundy (P, $19.00) is warmer (95% similar). Tarte Mulberry & Bright (LE) is darker (95% similar). Tarte BFF (LE) is lighter (95% similar). Too Faced Double Tap (LE, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Shooting Star is a light, golden beige with warm undertones and a fine, frosted shimmer. The texture felt silky-smooth to the touch, but it was also the type of eyeshadow where some of the shimmer separated away from the base color, so it can be a little messier to work with and harder to blend out without getting shimmer in unintended places. This one might work better over a sticky base, as Too Faced’s own standard primer did not improve it. It started to fade after seven hours of wear. Smashbox Flirt (P) is lighter (95% similar). L'Oreal Iced Latte (P, $7.99) is cooler (95% similar). bareMinerals Presto (P) is less shimmery (95% similar). Giorgio Armani Gold Ashes (12) (P, $39.00) is more shimmery (95% similar).

Clover is a pop of medium, grassy green with strong, warm yellow undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good pigmentation with a soft, smooth consistency that was blendable and easy to work with on bare skin. This shade started to crease after seven and a half hours of wear. Viseart Boheme Dream #6 (LE) is lighter (95% similar). Fyrinnae Dragon's Wing (P, $6.75) is cooler, lighter (90% similar).

Storm Cloud is a deep, bluish-teal with purplish undertones and a frosted sheen. It had intense color coverage with a smooth, cream-like feel to it that blended out well on the skin. It started to crease after seven and a half hours of wear. MAC Deep Blue Green (P, $21.00) is darker (95% similar).

Unicorn is an iridescent, very light white with a pinkish sheen. It had mostly opaque pigmentation with a denser, firmer texture that wasn’t difficult to use, but it was noticeably firmer compared to most of Too Faced’s eyeshadows (particularly for their more shimmery shades). This shade started to crease after seven hours of wear. LORAC Gluten Free (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Pearl (LE, $32.50) is more shimmery (95% similar).

I Love TF is a bright, medium fuchsia pink with cooler, blue undertones and a sparkly, lightly frosted finish. The texture was looser and drier in the pan, and I had a lot of trouble getting this shade to adhere to the skin–bare lids or primer–as it would immediately fade and look patchy. It might work better wet and/or over a tacky base. I had to layer it five or six times just to get it show up marginally in the eye look, and I had to just pat it on and avoid blending it in order to keep any of it visible. This eyeshadow lasted five hours on me before fading significantly. Urban Decay Cake (LE, $19.00) is darker, less shimmery (95% similar). Too Faced Totally Fetch (P, $16.00) is darker, less shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Noise (LE, $19.00) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Sugarpill Smitten (LE, $13.00) is brighter, darker (90% similar). Too Faced Monaco (P, $16.00) is warmer, darker (90% similar). Buxom Party Girl (P, $12.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Woodstock (P, $19.00) is warmer, darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Backlash (LE, $19.00) is cooler, lighter (90% similar). Fyrinnae Superstar (P, $6.75) is brighter, darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Viseart Boheme Dream #7 (LE) is brighter, lighter, more shimmery (85% similar). Maybelline Pink Rebel (P, $6.99) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Meow! is a blackened purple with warm undertones and a satiny sheen. It had decent pigmentation with a lightly dusty consistency. The eyeshadow could have diffused and blended more readily along the edges, as it had a drier, more dragged out appearance without using a more forgiving eyeshadow to soften the edges. It lasted for seven hours on me before fading noticeably. Dior Eclectic #5 (LE) is darker, less shimmery (95% similar). Colour Pop Straight Trippin' (LE, $5.00) is warmer, darker (95% similar). Tarte Glamorous (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Shadowy Lady (LE, $16.00) is more muted, lighter (90% similar). Makeup Geek Taboo (P, $6.00) is cooler, lighter, less shimmery (90% similar).

Disney by Sephora Wonder by Wonder (LE) is warmer (90% similar). bareMinerals Center Stage (P) is more muted, lighter (90% similar). bareMinerals In Vogue (LE) is cooler, less shimmery (85% similar).
