I snagged this palette off an Instagram seller for only $15, and boy am I glad! As much as I love the shades, the original review does reflect the formula: powdery. I know I’ll only be able to wear them with the Urban Decay primer (which will defiantly make it long wearing) to avoid any fading and creasing, which is my biggest problem and pet peeve with shadows. The one I received was highly pigmented, although some claimed to be sheer, none were a problem for me and were visible on my fingers at the first tap. However the pans are regular Too Faced size, and with being limited edition for the holidays you’d think they’d be just a bit wider. So that’s my only disappointment, too little of something so scarce!
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.
