Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette

Hi everyone! I can't believe it's been two weeks since my last post, I feel so guilty neglecting my blog so much, it's just been so hectic with all the assignments I've got. I will try and fit a post in here and there but until the 24th of May which is my last exam I might not be frequently posting on here. Actually can't wait till that day comes and I get my life back! I've got some quite exciting things coming up which I'm wanting to blog about so expect some more lifestyle posts when I've finished uni which I'm really excited for because they are by far my favourite to write. Anyway I'm so happy I can finally write a post on this product, I've wanted it for so long ever since I saw photos of it floating around on Instagram before it was officially announced and that is the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette. I am so obsessed with Too Faced palettes, the Chocolate Bar palette is my favourite that I own and when I saw this I actually needed it. It was such a nightmare to get hold of though, with it being limited edition there was so much hype over the release date for everyone who wanted it in case it sold out and Debenhams kept changing the online released, then some stores released it earlier than they were supposed to. When they finally said an official online release date it didn't come online at midnight that day and I was refreshing the page constantly until it finally went up around 1pm and I was able to get it. Such a faff on but it's definitely worth it!



The packaging is just standard Too Faced, so pretty and girly, I absolutely love it I think I prefer the appearance of this to the Chocolate Bar palettes. It is a scented palette and it's got a really nice sweet scent like peaches, I don't think it's as strong as the Chocolate Bar palettes but it's still really nice.


I'm actually so obsessed with how pretty it is, honestly my ideal shades they're so gorgeous! You get 18 shades, all the same size and they're a mixture of mattes, shimmers and glitters.

- White Peach (matte vanilla cream)
- Luscious (pearl peach champagne)
- Just Peachy (shimmering peachy pink)
- Bless Her Heart (golden moss)
- Tempting (bronzed black)
- Charmed, I'm Sure (matte medium cool brown)
- Nectar (pearly peachy cream)
- Cobbler (peachy pink bronze)
- Candied Peach (matte coral with shimmer)
- Bellini (gilded peach)
- Peach Pit (satin purple bronze)
- Delectable (matte smokey amethyst)
- Peaches 'n' Cream (matte milky peach)
- Georgia (matte peachy pink)
- Caramelized (dark gilded bronze)
- Puree (dark bronze)
- Summer Yum (matte gingerbread)
- Talk Derby To Me (shimmering black violet)




Top row: White Peach, Luscious, Just Peachy, Bless Her Heart, Tempting, Charmed I'm Sure


Middle row: Nectar, Cobbler, Candied Peach, Bellini, Peach Pit, Delectable


Bottom row: Peaches 'n' Cream, Georgia, Caramelized, Puree, Summer Yum, Talk Derby To Me

I actually am so obsessed with some of the shades in this palette, I definitely have my favourites and there is others I wouldn't use. I know a few people thought it was a bit daft that there isn't actually that many peach shades in the palette and I do agree, but I really love the majority of the shades anyway. The quality definitely didn't disappoint, they're so pigmented and creamy, some are definitely better than others though. My favourite by far is Bellini I think it's so gorgeous, I also love Caramelized, Nectar, Luscious and Cobbler, they are definitely my favourites. I probably won't end up using the darker shades, especially Talk Derby To Me and Tempting, but I think I would try out the purples as they aren't too full on. I'm so happy with how nice the matte shades are as well, normally I find mattes too dry and chalky but the ones in this palette are so good. 

The palette was definitely worth the chew on to get it, but there is one thing which really annoyed me and that is the fact that it's limited edition. I just can't get my head round the fact that it is the SS16 collection, like so many of their other palettes have been, yet this one can't be made permanent. To me it's just a different variation on the Chocolate Bar palettes and they are permanent so why isn't this one? It's not so much the fact that I won't be able to buy it again because it takes me so long to work through palettes, I just think the fact that there is so much demand for it and not everyone can get one. It mostly bugs me though because I was seeing palettes on Ebay and Depop for double the price, this retailed for £39 yet when they got released in stores before the online date they were on these sites for £70+ and people literally had gone and bought multiple palettes just to sell on for double the price. Really annoys me that people try and take advantage of those who weren't able to get one in stores, I think this is the main problem of limited edition items that are so popular, and I really hope people don't buy from these dodgy sellers who just want to make money off you and Too Faced decide to release it again! Anyway that's my rant over it just really bugs me! Let me know in the comments if you've tried this and what you think!

  6. I wish I had this solely on the fact that there is a shade called Georgia :P

    All the colours are so lovely though! Also, sending you positivity to get through the exam period. Not long now!

  8. I had no idea that this is a LE, I thought it's a permanent just like the Chocolate Bar palettes. Dang, I wasn't planning to get it but knowing that it's a LE makes me want it, A LOT.

  12. I love the colors but I'm not a fan of peach scents so I probably won't go to the trouble of picking it up. I completely agree with you about online sellers! I couldn't imagine selling an item for more than double the price.

  19. Oh wow, when I first saw this, I wasn't sure how wearable the shades would be, but having seen your swatches, I definitely think I'm going to have to have a closer look at this palette...then again, I'm a sucker for anything 'pretty' I can put in my make up drawer!
