Pinch My Peach
Too Faced Pinch My Peach Peach My Cheeks Melting Powder Blush ($30.00 for 0.44 oz.) is muted, medium coral with warm, orange undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had medium coverage, which was hard to build up without the texture becoming thicker, powdery, and almost caked onto the skin.
While the product had a creamy feel to it initially, the surface seemed to dry out and get thicker, more powder-like after that initial use. It was harder to blend it out on my skin, and it seemed like it sheered out to nothing even when I felt like I applied quite a bit of product. The texture did not work well over base products as it just moved foundation a lot. This shade lasted for four and a half hours on me.

The formula is supposed to be a "cream-to-powder blush" that has "buildable color" and a "creamy, velvety texture" paired with a "radiant-matte finish." The consistency felt creamy to the touch, but it also felt a little powdery. It had a candy-coated shell initially--very shiny--but after one or two uses, the texture looked more matte and felt a lot drier. It seemed almost as if it was drying out over time, so ultimately, it felt more like a powder going on most of the time.
The texture was thinner and while it was no trouble to diffuse the product across the skin, it did not do so that evenly, and I noticed a lot of color that seemed to sit in my pores (like dots of deeper color). The coverage was more buildable when applied with a fingertip, but it was a challenge to get more coverage that was still blended as the color seemed to disappear as I blended it out (even just a little). The only way I could manage decent application was patting color on the apples of the cheeks with fingertips and lightly pressing to blend, and then going back with a bit of foundation actually blend out the edges. The wear was short end on bare skin at six to seven hours.
Over foundation, they were worse, as they lifted liquid foundations a lot, which resulted in uneven coverage and some unevenness in overall texture, too, as the cream-to-powder formula caused clumping with my liquid foundations (I tried three different ones with this blush formula).

“Caked onto the skin!” Oh dear. That’s really, really bad. This brand is a mess.
I’ve seen so many negative comments and reviews of Too Faced lately. Has TF gone downhill or have they always been like this? I only have the Sweet Peach eyeshadow palette (good, except for the cloying smell) and Better Than Sex mascara (too clumpy). I’ve never tried any of their other products.
I had high hopes for these when I first saw them but this has been a dismal failure. Too bad as they look so pretty.
That one is so bad, it doesn’t even show up on your cheeks! Ranks with those awful KVD blush duos from a few years back.
I just can’t even with Too Faced anymore.
