Too Faced Fantasy Island Eyeshadow Duo
Take a Getaway to Too Faced’s Fantasy Island
Too Faced Fantasy Island Eyeshadow Duo ($17.00 for 0.08 oz.) is described as “peacock” and “gilded lime.” I picked up several of Too Faced’s duos when they were on sale at HauteLook, and while they’re not quite as deeply discounted, they are on sale on Too Faced right now.
The left side is a blue-based teal with a subtle golden iridescent shimmer-sheen. Too Faced Neptune is actually a bit similar, but the finish is different–more of a sheen than a traditional frost; it also read a bit greener against my skin tone. Urban Decay Minx is a bit greener and has glitter. MAC Shimmermoss is slightly greener. L’Oreal Endless Sea is bluer. Inglot #413 is similar.
The right side is a pale gold with a dirty, green-ish tinge; it keeps it from being too yellow or too warm. It has a frosted, slightly metallic finish. bareMinerals Wicked is greener. Tarina Tarantino Wonderful is just slightly more mint-like, less yellowy. Inglot #364 is matte and greener. MAC Valiant is similar, slightly less green.
Too Faced describes the formula as being “pigment-drenched [and] long-wearing.” Both shades had excellent color payoff, and the textures were soft, dense, and buttery. They were a dream to use–they applied true-to-pan on the lid without having to pack them on, and I didn’t experience any fall out, creasing, or fading while I wore the two shades for eight hours (without a primer). The finely-milled powder made these a cinch to blend, too!
