as many of you know, i have been eyeing the too faced: the return of sexy palette for a little while, but i just wasn't sure i could bring myself to buy another $50 eyeshadow palette. well, i couldn't resist that pretty little palette, so i ordered it online (it's a sephora exclusive) and
impatiently waited for it to arrive..
when it got here, i was just a little excited about it!
check it out:
- the colors in this palette, especially the purples, are what immediately caught my eye and convinced me to buy it. unfortunately, i was a little bummed by the lack of pigmentation and blendability of some (not all) of these eyeshadows. i have always been impressed with too faced products, so i expected a little bit more quality and consistency in this palette.
- what really disappointed me was the bottom color in the middle section (primadonna). it looks SO different when applied. it doesn't even look purple at all. :(
- these eyeshadows are pretty shimmery/glittery and i did experience some fall-out with them. i love the glitter, but if you prefer more matte eyeshadow then this is not the palette for you.
- overall, i am happy with this palette, but i did feel a little twinge of disappointment because i had expected this palette to blow me away, but it just didn't. i do consider it to be a pretty solid shimmery palette, i just suggest swatching it in stores before buying it so you know exactly what to expect.
would you buy this palette?
