Too Faced Fantasy Island Eyeshadow Duo
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!

A+
Two excellent eyeshadows in one pan! They coordinate well with each other, but more importantly, they're both amazing--rich in color with beautiful, to-die-for textures.

    I don’t really wear blues, but this combo looks fantastic! Such beautiful sheen!

    I never expected that blue to swatch so vibrantly-definately more beautiful than in the pan.

    I’m loving all of these Two Faced reviews! I’ve always been so curious about the brand, and now that they’re getting more attention, I’ve been picking up some stuff. And I’m happy to report that I’m loving all of it!

    I have colors similar to the blue, and I doubt I’d ever wear the yellow, but it looks like something I’d like to have just to stare at it because they’re both gorgeous!

      I feel the opposite; I’d wear the gold, but the blue isn’t for me. I also don’t like that they’re not in separate pans-it would seem a bit awkward to use one & not the other. However, I do agree they’d be beautiful to just stare at!

    I really like the Too Faced duos too. I am not as big a fan of their larger palettes, but the quality of the duos is quite good.

    Thank you for reviewing Too Faced. I love this brand!

    Awwww! This was my very first high-end eyeshadow purchase back in high school. I wore it everyday. Now that I’m older, I reach for neutrals more often than not, but your review, Christine, makes me want to grab another!

  9. Great colour combiation, that blue looks amazing!

  10. Such a pretty duo! I can’t believe I don’t own it!

  11. I just wish they were in 2 separate pans. I don’t like when shades get mixed together!

  12. This is a REALLY pretty duo and I think Fantasy Island is the perfect name for it!

  13. Chiara

    I own it, it’s a fabulous duo!!!

  14. Monica

    This seem rather similar to that mineralize e/s duo by Mac, of which I can remember the name for the life of me!. I do love the colors but since I have the one from Mac I wouldn´t buy this

  15. That blue is absolutely phenomenal! I don’t think it’ll work with my skin tone, but it’s worth a shot.

  16. Love love love Too Faced shadows! Glad to hear this duo lives up to their usual quality!

    I already own this duo & I love it so much! Too Faced is an awesome brand with lots of great products (Primed & Poreless Skin Smoothing Face Primer & their eyeshadow primer, Shadow Insurance (one of my HG items)
