Too Faced Joy to the Girls Eyeshadow Palette

Too Faced Joy to the Girls Eyeshadow Palette
Too Faced Joy to the Girls Eyeshadow Palette

Too Faced Joy to the Girls Eyeshadow Palette ($46.00 for 1.30 oz.) contains fifteen eyeshadows (0.06 oz. each, which is larger than the average full sized eyeshadow at 0.05 oz.) and a full-sized LashGASM Mascara (which is available separately for $21). Too Faced is listing the value of the palette at $275, and Too Faced has discontinued the majority of their eyeshadow singles, so it’s hard to say. Based on the pricing of their original eyeshadow singles, the eyeshadows have a total value of $180; going by the price per ounce of Exotic Color Eyeshadows, the eyeshadows have a total value of $270. To be fair, though, the majority of Too Faced eyeshadows are sold in palette form, so few people are actually purchasing singles extensively. I’m reviewing the eyeshadows (not the mascara), so it is intentionally absent from this post.

The big takeaway from this palette is that a lot of the shades are on the powdery side. They’re very soft, and as a result, they can be powdery, which means they are more prone to sheering out, fading while worn (I highly recommend layering a primer underneath with these), and if you have drier eye lids, the powderiness might emphasize flakiness around the eyes. If you like soft mattes and less intense colors overall, you may find this palette suits your needs. If you want really bang-on color and loathe powdery finishes, you’ll want to look elsewhere (I recommend Too Faced’s Pretty Rebel Palette in that case).

Cookie Dough is a light-medium, subtly warm-toned beige-brown with a satin finish. It had good color payoff, but it very much blends in with my skin tone so it may be hard to tell–I just assure you that it is. The texture is soft, smooth, and finely-milled. Inglot #337 (P, $6.00) is darker. Kat Von D Unrequited (P) is warmer, darker. Burberry Pale Nude #2 (P) is darker. See comparison swatches.

Cheers! is a warm, light-medium beige with a frosted finish. It had good color payoff, and it had a very soft texture–a smidgen powdery. MAC Jest (P, $15.00) is similar. Urban Decay Sin (P, $20.00) is a cream product. Make Up For Ever #30E (P, $20.00) is a cream product. Disney by Sephora Splendid (LE) is similar. MAC Summer Haze (LE, $21.00) is darker. MAC Sweet Heat (LE, $21.00) is darker. bareMinerals Custom Made (LE) is a touch pinker. Inglot #397 (P, $6.00) is more metallic.See comparison swatches.

Prancer is a coppery brown with gold and copper shimmer/sparkle. This shade had an oddly dry but powdery texture that didn’t bind together at all, so it was sheer and loose. I would only recommend using this over a tacky base or trying it with a damp brush. Sleek MakeUP Sunset #10 (P, $9.99) is similar. theBalm Manic Maribel (LE, $16.00) is less sparkly. Bobbi Brown Tiger’s Eye (LE, $21.00) is darker. Urban Decay Chopper (P, $18.00) is lighter. Urban Decay Penny Lane (LE, $18.00) is less sparkly. MAC Retrospeck #2 (LE, $15.00) is similar. bareMinerals Hoopla (LE) is less sparkly. See comparison swatches.

Sugar Plum is a neutral-warm purpled burgundy with a pearly finish. It had a very powdery, almost loose, consistency so it was semi-opaque applied and tended to flake away a bit. If I used this shade again, I’d try applying with a damp brush. Kat Von D Wonderland (LE) is darker. LORAC Deep Purple (P) is similar. Disney by Sephora Wonder by Wonder (LE) is darker. Tom Ford Beauty Enchanted #4 (LE) is warmer. Illamasqua Queen of the Night (LE) is similar. MAC Sketch (P, $15.00) is warmer. Make Up For Ever #79 (P, $20.00) is less shimmery. See comparison swatches.

Mulberry is a muted, neutral-cool purple with a matte finish. The texture was soft and finely-milled, though slightly powdery so use a gentle touch when using your brushes with it. The color payoff was fairly good but can be prone to fading and sheering out. MAC Stormy Pink (P, $18.50) NARS Charade #2 (P, $24.00) Benefit Rain Check (P, $20.00) See comparison swatches.

Snow Angel is a pale, light beige with neutral to cool undertones and a matte finish. It doesn’t turn chalky against my medium skin tone, but it might not work as well for deeper complexions since it seems to have a white base. It was soft but not powdery and had nice pigmentation. Urban Decay Bleach (LE, $18.00) is warmer. Wet ‘n’ Wild Newport Nights #1 (LE) is similar. Disney by Sephora A Wish (LE) is similar. theBalm Adagio (P, $16.00) is also similar. Urban Decay Kinky (LE, $18.00) is cooler-toned. Urban Decay Anonymous (LE, $18.00) is warmer. Urban Decay Walk of Shame (P, $18.00) is a touch darker. MAC Lithe Spirit (LE, $15.00) is whiter. MAC Vanilla (P, $15.00) is darker. MAC Blanc Type (P, $15.00) is warmer. L’Oreal Endless Pearl (P, $7.99) is slightly warmer. Bobbi Brown Ivory (LE, $29.00) is similar. See comparison swatches.

Powdered Sugar is a pale, light pink with a matte finish. It had good color payoff and a soft, velvety texture that was just a smidgen powdery. LORAC Light Pink (P) is darker. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Tease #3 (P) is more shimmery. theBalm Matt Chung (LE, $16.00) is cooler-toned. Chanel Variation #1 (P) is slightly shimmery. Chanel Premier Regard #2 (P) is darker. Benefit Pinky Swear (P, $20.00) is pinker/darker. See comparison swatches.

Too-Too is a light-medium, warm-toned pink with subtle peach sparkle. The sparkle isn’t very present, but the underlying base color had good color payoff while the texture was soft and finely-milled. MAC Sugar Snack (LE, $15.00) is less warm-toned. Inglot #359 (P, $6.00) is darker. See comparison swatches.

Yule Log is a dark, warm-toned brown with bronze, brown, and burgundy shimmer and sparkle. It had fairly good color payoff and applied evenly. MAC Constructivist (P, $18.50) is a cream product, less sparkly. Urban Decay West (LE, $18.00) is less sparkly. Bobbi Brown Chocolate (LE) is similar. MAC Friendly (LE, $15.00) is warmer. Bobbi Brown Cocoa Berry (LE, $21.00) is darker. See comparison swatches.

Chestnut is a medium-dark, warm-toned brown with a satiny finish. It had good color payoff, and while the texture was finely-milled and soft, it was a little powdery. MAC Her Cocoa #4 (LE, $15.00) is more frosted. MAC Divine Decadence (LE, $15.00) is similar. MAC Copper Strip (LE, $21.00) is a cream product. NARS Galapagos (P, $24.00) is darker, redder toned. MAC Eclair (LE, $18.50) is a cream product. MAC Lie Low (P, $21.00) is lighter. MAC Twinks (P, $15.00) is similar. MAC Mulch (P, $15.00) is warmer. Benefit Dandy Brandy (P, $18.00) is similar. Inglot #421 (P, $6.00) is more frosted. See comparison swatches.

Twinkle is a medium-dark gold with warm, yellow undertones and a brownish base. It had a frosted finish and a slightly metallic sheen. It had good pigmentation and wasn’t powdery. Fyrinnae Lucky Charmed (P, $6.80) is greener. MAC Gaelic Gold (LE, $15.00) is warmer. MAC Old Gold (P, $21.00) is greener. Inglot #430 (P, $6.00) is yellower. See comparison swatches.

Joy is a light-medium blue with a frosted, metallic sheen. It had fairly good color payoff, but it was a little uneven when applied. It’s a shade best applied in two layers by patting on the color and then lightly blending. Maybelline Icy Mint (LE, $6.99) is a cream product. MAC Lucky in Love (LE, $21.00) is greener. Giorgio Armani #10 (P, $33.00) is more metallic. See comparison swatches.

Spike the Punch is a warm-toned peach with soft pink tones and a white sparkle. It had good color payoff, and the texture wasn’t powdery–soft and smooth. MAC Perky (P, $18.50) is a cream product, darker. Too Faced Ringleader (LE) is more metallic. Wet ‘n’ Wild Newport Nights #2 (LE) is similar. theBalm Stubborn (P, $16.00) is more frosted. See comparison swatches.

Chimney is a medium-dark gray with a satin sheen. It had fairly good pigmentation but was a little dry, so it wasn’t fully opaque or even. Illamasqua Graphica (P) is a cream product. Urban Decay Poison (LE, $18.00) is darker. MAC Diesel (LE, $15.00) is similar. MAC Moody (LE, $15.00) is darker. MAC Nighttrain (LE, $15.00) is also darker. See comparison swatches.

Coal is a medium-dark black with subtle warm brown undertones and a matte finish. It’s highly likely you have something in your stash like this–most matte blacks, unless they’re super dark, will be similar. This one had good color payoff when I applied with a brush, but it is prone to sheering out so it doesn’t look too intense applied unless you layer it. With a black, sometimes blendability is more important, and that’s one area this one is good in. See comparison swatches.

Tom Ford Lavender Lust Eye Color Quad

Tom Ford Lavender Lust Eye Color Quad
Tom Ford Lavender Lust Eye Color Quad

Tom Ford Lavender Lust Eye Color Quad ($78.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a pink and purple themed palette. Tom Ford’s eyeshadows have four finishes: “sheer sparkle, satin, shimmer, and matte.” They’re supposed to “offer a spectrum of intensity and effects” with “excellent adhesion.” Overall, it’s a good quad, though not without its imperfections. The sparkly shade does produce some fall out during wear, though it’s minimal, it’s something to note. The lightest shade is on the sheerer side, which may be right up your alley if you intend to use it as a highlight shade, but for those who wanted something more opaque, it will be a let down. The colors go well together, and it’s certainly a very a harmonious set of shades.

Lavender Lust #1 is a pinky lavender with white sparkle. It had fairly good color payoff, and the texture was soft, finely-milled, and smooth. This shade wore well (no fading or creasing) for nine hours but had some slight fall out over time. CoverGirl Blazing Purple (340) (P, $4.99) is a bit darker, less sparkly. L’Oreal With a Twist (LE, $7.99) is darker, purpler. Urban Decay Grifter (P, $18.00) is darker. Giorgio Armani #1 Spring 2012 #1 (LE) is cooler-toned. See comparison swatches.

Lavender Lust #2 is a medium-dark, smoky purple with subtle, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had very nice pigmentation and applied smoothly and evenly. It wore well without fading or creasing for nine hours. Urban Decay Voodoo (LE, $18.00) is cooler-toned. MAC Black Grape (P, $21.00) is more sparkly. Dior Constellation (864) #4 (LE) is similar, less metallic. theBalm Lavish Latoya (LE, $16.00) is darker, cooler-toned. Urban Decay ACDC (P, $18.00) is slightly darker. See comparison swatches.

Lavender Lust #3 is a pale, lavender-tinted white with a pink iridescent sheen. It was semi-opaque in pigmentation, though the texture was incredibly soft and finely-milled. I checked it a few times, as it’s such a light shade that it can be hard to tell opacity against my skin tone, but it’s more opaque than sheer–there’s some translucency there, though. It seemed like it might be a satin finish. It wore well for almost eight hours but looked somewhat faded after nine hours of wear. Fyrinnae Unicorn (P, $8.25) is cooler-toned, lighter. MAC Digit (P, $15.00) is cooler-toned. MAC Ready to Party (LE, $21.00) is more metallic. MAC Triple Impact (LE, $21.00) is more metallic, less pink. Guerlain Attrape-Coeur #1 (LE) is similar. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Datura (P, $14.00) is purpler. See comparison swatches.

Lavender Lust #4 is a dark, red-toned purple with violet and plum shimmer. It had a satiny finish, and it had decent color payoff, but the texture was noticeably drier than the other three shades–soft but dry. It’s a shade that I’d probably use damp more often than not. With a fluffy crease brush, the dryness wasn’t noticeable during application. Urban Decay Tornado (LE, $18.00) is darker. Le Metier de Beaute Matte Plum (LE, $30.00) is similar. MAC Highly Charged (LE, $18.50) is a cream product. MAC Grape (LE, $32.50) is brighter, warmer. See comparison swatches.

Chanel Fascination (41) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad

Chanel Fascination (41) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad
Chanel Fascination (41) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad

Chanel Fascination (41) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad ($59.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a cool-toned, bluish-gray quad is one of two quads released with the Jeux de Regards collection. The color selections in the palette are on the more basic side, with the most interesting shade being a navy blue with a slight duochrome, which was greatly hindered by its powdery texture and sheer color payoff, so it really lost a lot of its intrigue once applied. It’s somewhat better when applied damp, but it still doesn’t have opaque pigmentation, though the powderiness goes away. If this one shade had performed better, the quad as a whole would be quite nice (the other three shades perform much better), but I really want to see all four shades perform well. The problem child of the palette also noticeably faded within six hours of wear, while the silver shade lasted slightly better for seven hours, and the remaining two shades were still going strong after eight and a half hours of wear.

Fascination #1 is a medium-dark, purplish-blue with an iridescent aqua sheen. It almost has a duochrome finish, but it gets lost as the color payoff is quite weak. Even when applied damp, it doesn’t yield more than semi-opaque color (it appears smoother in color but still sheer). Fyrinnae Wicked (P, $6.80) can also be somewhat powdery, but it’s a much deeper, darker color with a stronger purple base. Urban Decay Prank (LE, $18.00) is darker. MAC Bleuluxe #2 (P) is more sparkly. Maybelline Seashore Frosts (LE, $6.99) is a cream product. Clinique Big Blue (P, $16.00) is a cream product, less duochrome sheen. See comparison swatches.

Fascination #2 is a cool, purplish-white with a satin finish. It had fairly good pigmentation, and it wasn’t powdery and applied smoothly. theBalm A3 (LE, $16.00) is whiter. Tom Ford Beauty Cobalt Rush #1 (P) is more sparkly. Sugarpill Tako (P, $12.00) is whiter. MAC Flawless Figure (LE, $15.00) is more frosted. MAC Vellum (P, $15.00) has a stronger sheen. MAC Crystal Avalanche (P, $15.00) is similar. See comparison swatches.

Fascination #3 is a dark gray with a cool, purplish undertone and a satin finish. It had excellent color payoff, and the texture was just right–soft but not powdery, dense and buttery–so it applied beautifully on the skin. Urban Decay Redemption (LE, $18.00) is similar. LORAC Slate (P) is bluer-tinted. Disney by Sephora Flotsam (LE) is similar. theBalm Matt McDonald (LE, $16.00) is bluer. NARS Mandchourie #2 (P, $24.00) is also bluer. Bobbi Brown Gunmetal (LE, $21.00) is similar. See comparison swatches.

Fascination #4 is a blackened navy blue with a hint of green/teal underneath and a satin finish. It had very nice pigmentation and applied smoothly, evenly, and blended out well. Sephora Collection Midnight Swim (16) (P, $13.00) is greener. MAC Blue Spruce (LE, $15.00) is more muted. Guerlain Les Aquas #1 (P) is similar. Make Up For Ever #60 (P, $20.00) is brighter. Tom Ford Beauty Cobalt Rush #4 (P) is similar. See comparison swatches.

Kat Von D Spellbinding Eyeshadow Palette (Part 1)

Kat Von D Spellbinding Eyeshadow Palette
Kat Von D Spellbinding Eyeshadow Palette

Kat Von D Spellbinding Eyeshadow Palette ($55.00 for 1.20 oz.) contains twenty-four eyeshadows that are designed to work together in pairs (though you can surely use them as you wish); twelve of the shades are touted as never-before-seen. Each eyeshadow is 0.05 oz., which is the average weight of a full-sized eyeshadow, so the palette is an excellent value overall. The eyeshadow formula is supposed to be highly pigmented, long-wearing, and “crease-free.” Overall, this palette is a good choice for a new holiday palette for yourself (or your wish list) or someone else. It has a good mix of colors and neutrals as well as a variety of finishes, so there are plenty of looks to be created. The texture of the palette was generally soft and smooth, with the only downside being occasional powderiness because of how soft the eyeshadows were. The color payoff was quite good with a few exceptions.  The majority of shades wore well for eight and a half hours without fading or creasing, but shades that were powdery did tend to look faded after seven to eight hours of wear.

L’Oreal Amber Rush Infallible Eyeshadow

L’Oreal Amber Rush Infallible Eyeshadow ($7.99 for 0.14 oz.) is a warm, reddish copper with orange undertones and a frosted, metallic finish. It had great color payoff both wet and dry, and it applied smoothly and evenly. It wore well fourteen hours, and I didn’t see any signs of creasing, only very slight fading. Dior Meteore (661) (P, $30.00) is browner. LORAC Garnet (P) is less shimmery. Tom Ford Beauty Pink Haze (LE, $40.00) is pinker. NARS California (P, $24.00) is darker, less metallic. MAC In the Sun (LE, $21.00) is less metallic. MAC Mythical (LE, $15.00) is similar. Estee Lauder Cosmic (P, $24.00) is darker, a cream product. See comparison swatches.

Iced Latte Infallible Eyeshadow ($7.99 for 0.14 oz.) is a warm, champagne beige with a frosted, metallic finish. It is semi-sheer when applied dry, and then it is semi-opaque when applied wet. This shade is best applied with a damp brush patted on in two to three layers. It wore well for nine hours, and it was somewhat faded and slightly creased after ten hours of wear. MAC Vanilla Diamond (LE, $21.00) is similar. Milani Champagne Toast (P, $6.99) is a cream product. Estee Lauder Halo (P, $24.00) is a cream product, less metallic. Benefit Bikini-tini (P, $20.00) is similar but a cream product. See comparison swatches.
