Sweet Peach

Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette ($49.00 for 0. oz.) is a re-release, but this time it is noted as permanent by Too Faced!

I reviewed it when it was originally released in March of this year. My review is largely unchanged; I do not feel that Too Faced took notes or went back and reformulated anything within the palette. There are minor variations between a few shades, but they are within what I’d consider normal discrepancies found between batch to batch. The most noticeable differences were the texture of White Peach, was significantly silkier and more pigmented as a result, and Just Peachy and Bellini had stronger, pink bases (particularly with Just Peachy) – but this can often be the result of how the shimmer (which are warmer in both instances) gets mixed in or caught by the light. Talk Derby to Me was more pigmented and softer in the re-released palette, but on the flip side, Cobbler was much drier and sheerer in the re-release.

My general review stands the same, though, which is that Too Faced’s formula begs for an eyeshadow primer. It is typically thinner and dustier such that the eyeshadows will sheer out or apply unevenly (or turn patchy when blended) without primer underneath. There are many formulas that at least apply well (even if they don’t last all day) without primer, but Too Faced’s eyeshadow formula is particularly difficult to use well without primer across the board–application, pigmentation, blendability, and longevity. The palette does have a strong, sweet peach scent, though I can’t smell it once applied to the lid.

In terms of the overall rating, the only change was in the Pigmentation rating, which is now 9, and in the original, it was 8.5.

Sweet Peach Glow

Too Faced Sweet Peach Glow Palette ($42.00 for 0.39 oz.) contains a highlighter, blush, and bronzer. The blush contains more product (almost double) compared to the highlighter and bronzing shade. Everything is housed in a pink-to-orange gradient, metal tin (like the Sweet Peach palette). The palette was good, though the shades themselves may be found within your stash already, and if you have a deeper skin tone, the blush and bronzer might not be visible enough for your liking. The texture of all three shades was firmer and denser but not really stiff–they are in the vein of MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinishes, NARS Dual-Intensity Blushes, etc. They blended out nicely and lasted for eight to nine hours on me. The palette has the same peach scent as all of the other Sweet Peach products.

Codes Elegants (274)

Chanel Codes Elegants (274) Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow Quad ($61.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a new, permanent palette released in the spring collection, though it gave me a New Year’s Eve vibe with all the shimmer and gold tones. The formula is the same as the other quads in the Les 4 Ombres range, which is supposed to be “vibrant, pigment-rich” with “long-lasting pigments” and “effortless application.” It’s a stunning set of shades that work well together, is easy to apply and blend out, and lasts for eight hours (without primer). The biggest “con” to this palette is just that the shades are more dupable, so you may already have similar golds and browns in your stash!

Chanel Codes Subtils (278) Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow Quad ($61.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette for spring. The formula is the same as the other quads in the Les 4 Ombres range, which is supposed to be “vibrant, pigment-rich” with “long-lasting pigments” and “effortless application.” All four eyeshadows had a really soft, finely-milled quality that made application easy–I had no trouble applying and blending out the eyeshadows to create a cohesive look.

Skin Twinkle Vol. 2

Tarte Skin Twinkle Vol. 2 Highlighting Palette ($42.00 for 0.70 oz.) is a slim, rectangular compact that contains four highlighters from white gold to medium bronze. It is a follow-up to last spring’s Skin Twinkle palette, and it is definitely much improved, because it did not contain a “universal matte sand” shade for brightening the under eye (which was definitely not universal), and that particular shade actually had a more papery, dry texture that was strange. This year’s palette was more consistent, and all four shades are highlighters, so it’s a bit more fitting for more skin tones as a result. The brand also increased the value/amount in the palette to 0.70 oz., compared to last year’s which only contained 0.49 oz. (and they are the same price).

If you aren’t already inundated with highlighters, it’s a nice set. All four shades were very dupable, though, so for those who already have a few go-to highlighters, definitely check your stash for redundancy. For the most part, they’re soft, smooth, blendable, and definitely yield a glow (rather high-shine than “natural” based on their marketing) with good pigmentation and eight-hour wear.

Dance 'Til Dawn

LORAC Dance ‘Til Dawn Eye & Cheek Palette ($18.00 for 0.532 oz.) includes two blushes and six eyeshadows housed in a slim, cardboard palette. If you tend to like LORAC’s softer formula and use primer, I think you’ll like the palette overall, but it did run softer and looser in the pan, so there was some fallout during application and reduced longevity (without a primer) for me.
