I Want Kandee

Too Faced I Want Kandee Candy Eyes Eyeshadow Palette ($45.00 for 0.48 oz.) features mostly warm-toned shades with a few, slightly more neutral shades in it (like a taupe, plum, deep brown, and black). The overall quality was better than a lot of Too Faced palettes, though there were still some misses and shades that were prone to fading faster than average on me (without a primer). The formula was still on the thinner side, but most shades were fairly pigmented and not too powdery.

I don’t normally comment on packaging, unless there are noteworthy things to say about it, and that was the case here: it felt particularly well-done. The palette is housed in a tin that resembles a candy box and the back shows the eyeshadows as if they were chocolates in a box.

Sugared Strawberry

Sugared Strawberry is a light-medium coral with warm undertones and a sparkling finish. There were slightly larger chunks of sparkle in this shade, so there was a touch of fallout during application, but the texture was denser and smoother than is typical for the brand. Normally, Too Faced’s formula has a looser press to it, which tends to result in sheerer coverage and more fallout. This shade wore well for seven hours on me.

Ingredients

Mica, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Calcium Aluminum Borosilicate, Silica, Polyethylene, Zinc Stearate, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Phenoxyethanol, Flavor/Aroma, Sorbic Acid, Tin Oxide, Boron Nitride, Talc, Ethylene/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, Poloxamer 338, Carmine (CI 75470), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Yellow 5 Lake (CI 19140), Bismuth Oxychloride (CI 77163).

Cream Puff

Cream Puff is a light-medium, golden brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was smooth, soft, and a little powdery in the pan, but it applied evenly to bare skin and still had great pigmentation that did not sheer out when blended. It lasted for seven hours on me.

Ingredients

Mica, Talc, Boron Nitride, Ethylene/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Polyethylene, Zinc Stearate, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Phenoxyethanol, Flavor/Aroma, Sorbic Acid, Poloxamer 338, Silica, Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Manganese Violet (CI 77742), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891).

Sugar Plum (I Want Kandee)

Sugar Plum (I Want Kandee) is a medium plum with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic sheen. There seemed to be slight micro-glitter to it, which dropped off the lid during application (didn’t notice much during wear). It had opaque pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin, but this would be a shade I’d use with a dampened brush as the teture was a touch drier. This shade wore well for seven hours on me.

Ingredients

Mica, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Calcium Aluminum Borosilicate, Zinc Stearate, Polyethylene, Silica, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Phenoxyethanol, Flavor/Aroma, Sorbic Acid, Tin Oxide, Boron Nitride, Talc, Ethylene/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, Poloxamer 338, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Aluminum Powder (CI 77000), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77499).

Raspberry Cocoa

Raspberry Cocoa is a muted, medium-dark plum with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. Though it had some powderiness in the pan, it yielded full color payoff in a single layer, and it was easy to blend out and work with on my lids. The color started to fade on me after seven and a half hours of wear.

Ingredients

Mica, Talc, Ethylene/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Boron Nitride, Polyethylene, Zinc Stearate, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Phenoxyethanol, Flavor/Aroma, Sorbic Acid, Poloxamer 338, Silica, Carmine (CI 75470), Manganese Violet (CI 77742), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499).

Butterscotched

Butterscotched is a bright, medium orange with soft, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had excellent color payoff in a single layer, which diffused nicely along the edges but did not lose its intensity on the lid. The texture was smooth, a bit thin, but not powdery in the pan. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me.

Ingredients

Mica, Talc, Boron Nitride, Ethylene/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Polyethylene, Zinc Stearate, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Phenoxyethanol, Flavor/Aroma, Sorbic Acid, Poloxamer 338, Silica, Carmine (CI 75470), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77492), Yellow 5 Lake (CI 19140).

Sweet Toffee

Sweet Toffee is a medium-dark, coppery brown with warm undertones and a sparkling sheen. The consistency was drier and looser in the pan, and this shade felt a bit gritty compared to the other shimmers in the palette. I noticed that the shimmer separated away from the base color as I blended it out. On me, it lasted for seven and a half hours but had some fallout.

Ingredients

Mica, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Polyethylene, Zinc Stearate, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Phenoxyethanol, Flavor/Aroma, Silica, Sorbic Acid, Tin Oxide, Boron Nitride, Talc, Ethylene/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, Poloxamer 338, Iron Oxides, CI (77491), Bronze Powder (CI 77400), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891).

Frosted Pink

Frosted Pink is a light pink with subtle, warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had good color payoff in a single layer, which was only buildable to full coverage using a dampened brush. The texture was soft, a bit drier, and felt looser in the pan, so it did sheer out a bit and had some fallout during application. It wore well for seven hours on me.

Ingredients

Mica, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Polyethylene, Zinc Stearate, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Phenoxyethanol, Flavor/Aroma, Sorbic Acid, Tin Oxide, Boron Nitride, Talc, Ethylene/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, Poloxamer 338, Silica, Carmine (CI 75470), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Bismuth Oxychloride (CI 77163), Manganese Violet (CI 77742), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499).

Hot Chocolate

Hot Chocolate is a deep, reddened brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a thin texture that was prone to patchiness on bare skin. This shade needed a primer underneath it to make it decent, but it was still troublesome to blend out with a primer. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me before fading.

Ingredients

Ethylene/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, Zinc Stearate, Boron Nitride, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Talc, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Phenoxyethanol, Flavor/Aroma, Sorbic Acid, Poloxamer 338, Silica, Polyethylene, Mica, Carmine (CI 75470), Manganese Violet (CI 77742), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Ultramarines (CI 77007).

Taupe Berry

Taupe Berry is a medium-dark, grayish taupe with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was stiff and difficult to work with, which resulted in sheer, uneven color payoff that never wanted to blend out. It started to fade noticeably after six and a half hours of wear.

Ingredients

Mica, Boron Nitride, Talc, Ethylene/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Polyethylene, Zinc Stearate, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Phenoxyethanol, Flavor/Aroma, Sorbic Acid, Poloxamer 338, Silica, Manganese Violet (CI 77742), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891)

Licorice Rope

Licorice Rope is a deep black with subtle sparkle over a matte finish and a more neutral undertone. The texture was smooth to the touch but denser while still being on the thinner side (so it did not feel packed with silicones like some denser, creamier formulas do). This made for really intense coverage went patted and packed onto the lid, but it was less easy to diffuse and blend it out as a crease color. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me.

Ingredients

Talc, Boron Nitride, Ethylene/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Phenoxyethanol, Flavor/Aroma, Sorbic Acid, Poloxamer 338, Silica, PTFE, Zinc Stearate, Iron Oxides (CI 77499).

Banana Cream Pie

Banana Cream Pie is a light, golden beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque pigmentation, but the consistency was more powdery and prone to sheering out. I noticed that the stronger white base in this shade was prone to turning shades like Hot Chocolate gray. It wore well for seven hours on me.

Ingredients

Talc, Mica, Ethylene/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Boron Nitride, Polyethylene, Zinc Stearate, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Phenoxyethanol, Flavor/Aroma, Sorbic Acid, Poloxamer 338, Silica, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Ultramarines (CI 77007), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499).

Ice Cream

Ice Cream is a very pale pink with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was somewhat dusty in the pan and felt thin, which made it difficult to use on the lid as it would darken and absorb natural oils on my lid. It was okay as a brow bone highlighter, but the white base made it starker and harder to blend with other shades. It lasted for seven hours on me.

Ingredients

Talc, Ethylene/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, Cetearyl Isononanoate, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Phenoxyethanol, Flavor/Aroma, Sorbic Acid, Poloxamer 338, Methicone, Silica, Bismuth Oxychloride (CI 77163), Ultramarines (CI 77007), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499).

Thanks so much for these information. I definitely will be buying this eyeshadow palletes. I like the pink tones but I also like purple tones too! 🙂

I’m trying to decide between picking up this palette or the new peach palette! Which would you recommend quality wise and which one is more worth the money, disregarding color selection?

Again, as for the Sweet Peach eyeshadow palette, I’m pleasantly surprised that it’s decent to good. But I think for anyone who already owns Too Faced palettes, this is a repeat of what we already have – maybe not exact dupes for each single shade, but the whole palette feels like something they’ve already released several times.

Not bad! At least for Too Faced, that is. I read the ingredients list and didn’t see that one most dreaded ingredient that is sadly overused by TF, though! No sodium saccharin!!! Still not 100% that I’ll buy it, though.

Thank you for the review, Christine! I ordered this and have been dying to know how it performs. I can deal with the two misses in the palette because the rest of the shadows look so nice.. And that packaging!!! Did you find the scent appealing? Was it strong or subtle?

Loved this, thank you for reviewing! I bought it but haven’t used it yet and was debating whether I should gift it to a friend or not. I really wanted to see these color’s but not swatch my actual product. Maybe you can review the rest of the products in the Kandee Too Faced line? I’m curious about that liner she came out with and her Banana Powder.

Ginny, I was thinking the same about the colours – they’re really nice but so similar to palettes TF has already done many times. I’m tempted, but not a whole bunch.

I have to disagree with you for once. I had the complete opposite “review” of the Kandee palette! I have been using this palette for 3-4 days now (twice a day — day and night looks) and I love the quality. It is so much better than the prior Too Faced palettes. The colors are rich, long lasting, smooth and not powdery. The colors are on the cooler side, finally, since every single palette for the last year has been orange/red/burgundy, which are NOT good colors on me. I especially love the lavender shade.

On the other hand, the package is so so bulky. UGH. I am going to have to depot this giant tin thing. Unless this is your only palette, I feel like the domed tin just wastes so much space. It’s so thick and unnecessary. JMHO of course but I give the palette a B+ and the packaging a C!

This is, overall, a much better quality palette than we have seen from Too Faced for awhile. The shade selection seems co-ordinated, although I am not sure why TF sought to put a black in there – a darker plum, or shimmery grey would have been better.
On the minus side, these shades look like a lot of the others the brand has put out in recent years, nothing original or different.
Thank you for your review and beautiful eye look Christine.

I love the colours in this one and feel like shades I would reach for, but I’m liking the idea of this being an Ulta exclusive even if they do ship to Canada, any returns would be a hassle. lol

It feels like Too Faced keeps releasing the same palette over and over again (with different packages), they all look very similar to me. The last one that I felt interested on was the White Chocolate one, but the eyeshadows performed so badly that I gave up immediately after seeing some reviews/swatches.
