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.

For a full rundown and dupes for shades in this palette check out Temptalia’s review.

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.


Thank you for checking out my review,

Next months palette is…

Violet Voss ‘Flamingo’ Eyeshadow palette

In case you didn’t catch my part one of January 2019’s palette review I chose the Violet Voss ‘Flamingo’ Eyeshadow palette for my next review.

Being summer I can’t get enough bright fun colours so I wanted to dip into another fun colourful palette for February. 

This palette is fairly new to me and I’ve had a play here and there but I can’t wait to try it out some more and share my thoughts with you.

See you soon,

Inexpensive Beauty & Makeup Organization + Video| Life Of Dahlia

Inexpensive Beauty & Makeup Organization + Video| Life Of Dahlia

Hey Beauty & Makeup Lovers, Today I want to share with you some inexpensive makeup storage ideas, I also have my first video where I talk about Inexpensive Beauty & Makeup Organization so go check that out. It’s my first video so I apologise in advance for the awkwardness. I’ll including all the links and some pictures of how I organize my makeup in this post.

As you might know, I did up my Beauty Room this year, one of the things I wanted to do for my makeover was to find some nice ways to store my makeup. I was so surprised to find out how expensive some of the storage options were out there, so I had to get creative, That’s where stores like Kmart & Target are great.

Draw Organizers: For Individual Products

I have a couple of different types of acrylic drawer organizers that I like to use and both are super inexpensive. I recently picked up two cosmetic organizers from The Reject Shop, they were $8 each (pictured above left) and have different sized compartments, I keep one on my vanity to put my project pan and everyday items in and keep the other one in a draw for my face powders, bronzer, blushes etc.

You can purchase this organizer at your local Reject Shop or find similar ones below:

Kmart Australia also has some great draw organizers in their kitchen section, they come in lots of different sizes and are only a few dollars each.

Letter Holders: For Eyeshadow & Face Palettes

My main struggle has been to find a way to display my palettes, I recently found out that Kmart has these great inexpensive letter holders. I saw on Its Mandy Moo’s Instagram where she featured them in one of her Instagram stories and knew this was what I had been looking for so I had to check them out at my local Kmart.

You can pick them up for $4 each and they come in a few different colours, I’ll link them below:

Cups or Jars: For Brushes, Lipsticks and Eyeliners

I love using cup, jars, pots or vases to store my lipsticks, eyeliners, mascaras and makeup brush. They come in lots of different shapes and sizes and you can pick them up from Kmart, Target or your local discount shop (reject shop, cheap as chips etc)

Here are some similar ones:

Inexpensive Beauty & Makeup Organization | Life Of Dahlia

Candy Jars: Lip Balms, Single Eyeshadows & Pigments, etc

I love using candy jars to store my makeup sponges, lip balms, mini lipstick and single eyeshadows or pigments, they look great and it also gives me a place to store them.

I’ve listed a few similar ones below:

Acrylic Draw Sets: For Capsule Collection or Everyday Items

These are similar to what I showed in the video, I’ve had mine for a long time so they don’t stock the ones I have anymore but Target.com.au have the ones pictured above that are quite similar, the drawer set is pretty much identical. These are great if you have a capsule collection or are an average makeup user, meaning you only use your most loved items and don’t have more than you need.

I’ll include links to the above items:


Thank you for checking out my post & video, I hope that this has been helpful and given you some ideas on what you can use to display and organize your makeup collection. If you have any questions feel free to leave them below and I will try my best to answer them.

If you have a quick minute before you go, check out my YouTube Channel and subscribe, hopefully, I’ll be posting some more content there pretty soon.

Until next time,

Halloween Edition - Cruelty-Free Special Effects Makeup Brands | Life Of Dahlia

Halloween – Cruelty-Free Special Effects Makeup Brands | Life Of Dahlia

Hey Everyone, Its October Yay, I’m super excited not only does that mean its acceptable to wear dark and spooky attire it’s also my birthday month. I’ll be turning 31 this year kinda scary, the last year had gone so fast. I just wanted to note it actually spring here in Australia but that doesn’t matter I’ll for sure be rocking my skeleton leggings and pieces from the recent Blackmilk ‘Immortal Beauty’ collection which I’ll be posting about soon.

With Halloween being only a couple of weeks away, I thought that I would share with you a list of Cruelty-Free Special Effects Makeup Brands. I’ve been using Tag body art paints, unfortunately, these aren’t CF but I did not know that at the time of purchase I’ve had them for a while, however, some of the brands I have listed below should have some great CF alternatives.

Cruelty-Free Special Effects Makeup Brands

All the brands listed below are cruelty-free, it is either stated on their website or they have a cruelty-free certification but I also recommend doing your own research for your own benefits & beliefs. These brands may not be 100% vegan, I’ll include information on certifications and whether they are also 100% Vegan if I can find that information.

* Glitter Girl’s glitter is a bio glitter (“Our Glitter products are made from plant-based film (cellulose). The material is derived from the fibres of eucalyptus trees, one of the most widely available and fastest growing trees on the planet.” – from the Glitter Girl Website) Which means that it’s also friendly for the planet.

Cruelty-Free Beauty Brands

Some of these beauty brands are great for creating spooky makeup looks, Manic Panic and Lunatick Labs specialise in alternative and spooky themed makeup products.

Australian Special Effects Stockists

(that stock some CF SFX brands.)

These are some Australian Stockist that stock cruelty-free brands including some of the ones above.


I hope that this post has been helpful for you. Since choosing to go cruelty-free I’m definitely learning a lot and I’m trying my best to stay on top of researching brands to check their cruelty-free status. I do find that its all up to personal opinion on what you are okay with purchasing. When brands have a certification from Peta, Leaping Bunny or Choose Cruelty-free it makes it a lot easier to know that they are doing the right things.

For whatever reason, not all brands have done that, so I also like to check out what other cruelty-free bloggers or influencers are using when I’m deciding, especially when a brand that doesn’t have a certification. But It’s all personal preference.

I hope this post will be a good resource for those wanting to get some cruelty-free makeup for Halloween or just to do special effects makeup.

I hope to see you in my next Halloween post,

First Impressions The BH Cosmetics Zodiac Eyeshadow Palette | Life Of Dahlia

Hey beauty lovers, today I’m testing out the BH Cosmetics Zodiac eyeshadow palette, This post is a little bit different kind of review for my blog its based on my first impressions of using this palette. I usually test products out for a few weeks before giving a review but I thought it would be fun to try something different today and do a first impression.

This is actually my first time trying out BH Cosmetics so this is a double first impressions, I had absolutely no idea what to expect. I picked this up from Glamraider.com for $35 which is pretty good if you ask me, they provided great customer service with express shipping and half-refunding me, after realizing they didn’t have the other one I ordered. I will definitely be purchasing from them again.

My First Impressions of The BH Cosmetics Eyeshadow Palette

My first impressions of this palette were pretty good, I’m so excited to have this palette in my makeup collection. I was so surprised when I first dipped into a couple of the mattes eye-shadows to find out that they had great pigmentation and blended out nicely. I didn’t feel like I had to work to hard with them or dip back in to the pan multiple times to get the pigmentation I desired which was great.

I used two of the baked shimmers in ‘Libra’ and ‘Virgo’ for the look I did, I loved the colours and the pigmentation was really nice. I dipped into the large baked highlighter in the middle for face highlights, it was stunning (though it doesn’t show up well in the photos.)

I experience little to no fall out on my face from the matte’s but I did experience a some from the shimmer eyeshadow that I used, there was also not much kick up in the pan either.

The eyeshadow held up pretty great through out the day with not much fading. I always use a eyeshadow primer I thought that would be a good thing to mention, I did experience some creasing but I think that was because I used a concealer on my eye lids to help conceal the veins that are visible.

The Look I Create With The BH Cosmetics Zodiac Eyeshadow Palette

First Impressions The BH Cosmetics Zodiac Eyeshadow Palette | Life Of Dahlia

What I Used To Create This Look

  1. Aquarius (matte- colour: tan) as a transition shade.
  2. Pisces (matte – colour: deep eggplant brown) in outer corner & crease.
  3. Libra (shimmer – colour: burgundy) all over lid
  4. Virgo (shimmer – colour: ) inner corner

Have you tried out the BH Cosmetics Zodiac Palette? What are your thoughts on it? let me know.

I can’t wait to try out this palette more and maybe purchase some more from this brand in the future. I’ll do a follow up review at some point to give my full thoughts on this palette after trying it out for a longer period of time.

I hope to see you in my next post,
