Happy Spring Everyone!

I hope you all had a great Easter. I took a break from blogging over the long weekend and wanted to recharge. Today I’m sharing my review of the Too Faced Love Palette. I actually bought this at least 6 months ago and have been meaning to post about this for ages. It is still available on TooFaced.com and at Sephora.


THE DEETS:

This palette is formulated with what they call “slurry technology”, supposedly making for intensely pigmented powder shades. The palette features 15 unique shades in mattes, shimmers and metallics, and also comes with a unique Perfect Black full-sized eyeliner with a smudger tip. This isn’t exactly affordable as I purchased this from Sephora for $68 CAN (it sells for $49US for my American readers).


THE PROS:

-Great colour ranges, it’s like 3 small palettes in one

-Colours are very pigmented when used wet

-Includes warm and cool tones

-Darkest shades are very pigmented and blend well


THE CONS:

-Shimmer and metallic shades lack pigmentation unless used wet

-Shimmer shades have a lot of fallout- do your eyes before your face!

-Some of the lighter matte shades are quite chalky

-Not enough matte transition shades


THE VERDICT:

I give this palette a 3.75/5.

The colours are gorgeous but the quality could have been improved to make these apply better wet or dry. The shimmer and metallic shades barely show up unless used wet (they are swatched dry in the photos above). The darker matte shades are very pigmented however and blend out very easily. I’ve definitely seen better pigmentation from brands like Urban Decay, MAC and Makeup Geek.

At $68 CAN I was definitely disappointed with the quality of these, as the palette is just really inconsistent from shade to shade. Also, there are only 3 matte shades in the entire palette so I find myself reaching for other transition shades in other palettes. BUT I do like the variety of shades and how you get 3 highlight shades, 3 dark crease colours, and then 9 other lid/transition shades.  Some palettes only have one main dark or highlight shade.

Overall this is definitely a fun palette to use for going out, but I don’t reach for it for everyday looks since so many shades are glittery or metallic.

    Awe, this is so sad! Even wet they don’t seem as vibrant as the chocolate bar shadows 🙁 And only 3 matte shades!? Shame on Too Faced! Especially when they make some of the best matte shadows EVER!

      I know, I think it was definitely more of a one-off product than a permanent item. It is fun to use for night time looks, but Fix+ is required for all lighter shades!
