Today as seen in the title I am going to give you all my personal opinion on this new limited edition palette by Too Faced & NikkieTutorials! I have seen this palette all over social media lately & when I showed my sister 2 palette I would have loved for my birthday this was the one she purchased! As always I was ecstatic, I love me some new palettes (: I had some extremely high standards for this palette because welll, for one it’s Too Faced & two NikkiTutorials is a major influencer for makeup & Youtube. Let me just hop into the review before I give away too much!
To begin with this palette comes with 9 shadows, 2 Sweetheart blushes, Chocolate Soleil bronzer, & a highlight in Champagne Truffle! You also get a little baggy filled with cute goodies! You receive a full-sized Sketch Marker, a mini Shadow Insurance, a Glamour Dust in Glitterally, & a limited edition Better Than Sex mascara in purple! The packaging is great, I love that it opens like a book & displays everything the way it does. It gives you everything you need right in front of you. This palette as soon as you open it has an amazing scent of chocolate, I dieeddd and went to heaven with that! Overall this palette retails at $56, which to me is a bit pricey but for what you receive it is worth it.
Now with all collabs the collaborator gets to mix and match to create their own shadows. I personally LOVED the shadow choices. This palette gives you a great variety of neutrals and bolds allowing you to create whatever kind of look you want! I will have to say that they do swatch beautifully (shown below), but not all the shadows are up to my standards. I have watch several videos of different Youtubers applying these shadows to their eyes so I was amazed at the pigment as anyone would be, I was pumped to start playing around. I did not own a great gold or silver shadow so this was perfect for me. Unfortunately when I picked up my flat shader brush and started dipping into the shade Irresistible I was very disappointed. The color did not have the payoff I wanted, was full of fall out and glitter. I was expecting a very opaque swipe/pack when applied to the eye, but it gives more of a sheer dusting. The shade is buildable, but from a $56 palette I do expect great pigmentation out of all shadows, this happened with Frosted Yum as well sadly. Besides that problem all of the other shades seem great so far. The shade Wham Bam is amazing, everything I would want from purple shadow along with Mystic Hour being a great blue/green. Those shades are amazing!
Some swatches: All done as seen in the palette. (L-R)
As I said the swatches are very pigmented! All the shades feel very soft and buttery, it is almost addicting to swatch these shades. They all look great when pressed into the skin.
Ivy, Sugar Coated, Frosted Yum
Irresistible, Painkiller, Makeup & Chill
Mystic Hour, Wham Bam, Wanted
As for the extras, again it was a hit & miss for me. But these are all my personal opinions!
Sketch Marker: This one was a big no for me. I think the pigmentation is like no other. It is a very black eyeliner & gives a matte look at the end. I personally feel that this is a very hard product to work with. It doesn’t glide or bend the way I would prefer it to, it makes creating a winged look very hard for me. I would take my Physicians Formula pen over this one for sure.
24+ Shadow Insurance: I love love love this product! I think the longevity of my eyeshadow is amazing when I used this. No creasing or smudging happened when this was applied before my shadows. 2 thumbs up for this product (:
Glamour Dust: I have been dying to get my hands on a eye glitter. I think they are beautiful and allow you to create bold or flirty makeup looks. This is what I hoped for out of a glitter! It is very finely milled & silver so it reflects a lot of light. I think this glitter can change an everyday look to something special. Another thumbs up from me (:
Better Than Sex purple mascara: By far this little goodie in my favorite of them all. Purple mascara?! How coool 😛 I am so pumped to use this to create fun edgy looks. You all know I am all for the purple makeup & being crazy with this color so this product was no different for me. 10 out of 10 for this!!
Again guys these are all my honest opinions, I know I can be brutally honest sometimes but that’s what I am all about! I want you all to have the best opinions you can before purchasing a product, especially some that are pretty pricey.
I hope this one helped make a decision for you(: If you would like me to review a different product let me know & I will be glad to do so.
ps: I still do really like this palette because my fav little sister got it for me. #onlysisbestsis
Stay tuned for a MOTD with this palette ❤
