Toofaced Cosmetics Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette

Palette Of The Month | Toofaced Cosmetics ‘Sweet Peach’ Eyeshadow Palette Review

Hey Everyone, I’m back for part 2 of my ‘Monthly Palette‘ Review, Today I’m sharing with you my review on the Toofaced Cosmetics ‘Sweet Peach‘ palette. If you didn’t see my part 1 on the Lifes A Festival‘ palette you can check it out here.

I have owned this palette for a while, It has been a favourite for a couple of years now but, I have to admit I haven’t picked it up in a while. When I was picking an accompanying palette to go with the ‘Lifes A Festival‘ Palette, I knew this one would probably go quite well with it.

During the last month, I used this on its own as well as with some shade from the ‘Lifes A Festival‘ palette. I felt that this gave me plenty of extra shades to help create some looks, mostly the mattes which the other palette didn’t have too many of, it also had some shade I could use to help add a bit of depth to my eye looks.

My Thoughts On The Toofaced Cosmetics ‘Sweet Peach’ Eyeshadow Palette

This isn’t the first time I have done a review on this palette but I was having a lot of trouble with the images on the original post, for some reason they stopped working so and I couldn’t fix the problem, so in the end, I decided to just delete it. Because I knew I would probably do an updated one at some point.

And that is why we are here right now. I still think this is one of my favourite palettes, from Toofaced especially. I think It has some stunning shades and finishes, but it’s definitely not full proof, it has its flaws which I will talk about later on in this post.

The Packaging

I love the packaging on all the products I have from this collection but I especially love the packaging on the eyeshadow palette. It’s very similar to the packaging on the Toofaced ‘Chocolate Bar’ palettes but it has peaches embossed instead of hearts or the rectangles that give that chocolate bar look.

The packaging is made of metal and is quite sturdy, on the inside it has a mirror though for me personally I find it kind of small so I tend not to use it.

Underneath each eyeshadow shade, the name of each is printed which I like, as a blogger and makeup lover, I love when brands print names inside the palette instead of on the back or on a removable plastic sheet, it makes it a lot easier for reference.

The Eyeshadows

As far as the actual eyeshadows go, I feel like even though this is an older palette now most of the shades still perform similarly to the way they did when I purchased it. The metallics still perform nicely, though I do think I like them better when I foil them and the mattes still blend just as nice.

This palette features 18 eyeshadows inspired by peaches and includes a mixture of finishes (satins, metallics, shimmer/frost, and mattes). It contains 0.95 g/ 0.03 oz for each eyeshadow or a total of 17.1g/ 0.54 oz.

I know when this palette first came out that a lot of people were confused by it because it didn’t have more peachy shades, but I personally can see that they were taking inspiration from different types and parts of the peach. The skin and flesh colouring as well as the peach pit and leaves on the peach tree, when you think about it that way you can see why they choose those colours.

I also love that like the ‘Chocolate Bar‘ palettes this is scented, but instead of a chocolate scent it has a peach scent, I know this isn’t everyone’s cup of tea but I love that I get a pleasant peachy scent everytime I open it.

Metallics & Shimmers

This palette features quite a few Metallic & Shimmer eyeshadows, some are more intense metallics and there are some that have less of shine and are more of a shimmer, or frost finish.

When playing with this eyeshadow palette this month I tried my hardest to use every shade and for a majority of the metallic/shimmer shade in here I really enjoyed using them. There were shades I just wanted to use over and over again and some that just didn’t draw me in but I tried to use them at least once.

I really enjoyed using ‘Luscious‘, ‘Cobbler’, ‘Bellini‘, and ‘Bless Her Heart‘. I would often use ‘Luscious‘ as an inner corner highlight when I used ‘Cobbler‘, ‘Caramelized‘ and ‘Bless Her Heart‘. I thought it looked really pretty but also I felt like I had to try something different because to me this palette only really has one shade that I thought was good as an inner corner highlight and that’s ‘Nectar’, which is a nice shade but I felt like it didn’t go with every colour in the palette.

I think it would have been great to have a light gold or peachy gold duo-chrome with a translucent base to use as an inner corner highlight or to use as a topper on some of the other metallic/shimmer eyeshadows.

I wasn’t a huge fan of some of the deeper shades in this palette in particularly ‘Peach Pit‘ & ‘Tempting‘, mainly I just wasn’t drawn to them but I like the fact that they have included a range of tones in here that could work on multiple skin tones.

Mattes

As for the Mattes in this eyeshadow palette, I think there is a good range of colours and tones but some of them are harder to work with than others. Particularly the deeper shades like ‘Delectable‘ I felt like it took a lot of building and looked quite muddy and patchy when trying to blend it out.

I made sure to feature some of the darker mattes in the eye looks which you can find further down in this post so that you could see what I was talking about.

While I love shades like ‘Peaches N’ Cream‘ & ‘Georgia‘ I feel like you didn’t need both. I often used ‘Peaches N’ Cream‘ as a base shade to set my eyeshadow primer, but I guess these would have been good for an all matte look but I could hardly see these on my skin tone which is very fair so I can’t imagine them showing up to well on deeper skin tones.

I guess you could use ‘White Peach‘ as a highlight on your brow bone or inner corner but instead of having a satin I would have loved this to have been that duo-chrome I mentioned earlier.

As for shades I really enjoyed, I dipped into ‘Puree‘, ‘Summer Yum‘ & ‘Charmed, I’m Sure‘ quite often, I thought these were good staple shades. I also dipped into ‘Talk Derby To Me‘ a few times but I’m not a big fan of mattes with glitter, in all honesty, I never really get why companies do that, but I used this to deepen my outer corner a bit or to line my lash line.

I loved pairing ‘Candied Peach’ with ‘Bellini‘ or ‘Just Peachy‘ for and all-over peachy look.

The Eye Looks

Look 1

What I used to create this look:

Base: Eyeshadow Primer set with an eyeshadow close to my skin tone.

Eyeshadow: I used ‘Puree‘ as a transition colour and then went in with ‘Summer Yum‘ to add a bit of depth, I then added a bit of ‘Summer Yum‘ & ‘Charmed I’m Sure‘ in the outer corner.

On my lid I used ‘Luscious‘ from the centre to inner corner (*foiled) and then tapped ‘Cobbler‘ in between ‘Charmed, I’m Sure‘ and ‘Luscious‘ to blend the colours together a little bit.

On my lower lash line I used ‘Charmed, I’m Sure‘ and smoked it out. For the inner corner, I used ‘Luscious‘ and then finished off the look with some brown eyeliner and mascara.


*For foiling I took some eyeshadow on my brush and sprayed it with setting spray to get the extra metallic look.

look 2

What I used to create this look:

Base: Eyeshadow Primer set with an eyeshadow close to my skin tone.

Eyeshadow: I used a mixture of ‘Georgia’ & ‘Candied Peach’ as a transition shade and then popped Delectable‘ & ‘Talk Derby To Me‘* on the outer portion of the eye and winged it out, making sure to also take it into the outer crease a little bit.

On the centre, to the inner corner of the lid, I used a mixture of ‘Bellini‘ & ‘Just Peachy‘(**foiled), for a pretty peach colour and then lined my lash line with ‘Talk Derby To Me‘.

For the lower lash line I used ‘Delectable‘ & ‘Talk Derby To Me on the outer portion and then added ‘Nectar‘ on the inner corner, I then added a bit of ‘Bellini’ in between two colours.


*The darker shades take some building up

**For foiling I took some eyeshadow on my brush and sprayed it with setting spray to get the extra metallic look.

Look 3

What I used to create this look:

Base: Eyeshadow Primer set with an eyeshadow close to my skin tone.

Eyeshadow: I used ‘Charmed, I’m Sure‘ in my crease and outer corner, and I blended it out with ‘Peaches N’ Cream‘. On the centre to the inner corner of my lid, I add ‘Bless Her Heart’ *(foiled).

On my lower lash line I added ‘Charmed, I’m Sure‘, blending it out and then topping with ‘Caramelized’, For my inner corner highlight I used “Luscious’

*For foiling I took some eyeshadow on my brush and sprayed it with setting spray to get the extra metallic look.


Final Thoughts

So for my final thoughts, I still love this palette and I have really enjoyed using it for the past month, so its still very much a favourite. I’ve found myself falling back in love with some of these eyeshadows and I love having this in my collection.

As for the palette its self its not perfect, there are shades in there that could have been much better, particularly some of those deeper shades and I felt like some of them definitely could have been swapped out for something more interesting.

But if you love the look of this palette and are looking for some peachy inspired shades then I would say this palette is a good one, if you were drawn to just a couple of shades, then check out Temptalia for similar dupes. She does very in-depth reviews and gives a great list of dupes for shades of various makeup items so if you are ever looking for a dupe her website is the place to go.
