So, I didn't know Too Faced Cosmetics existed until I went into my first Sephora at the beginning of summer. While I was there I noticed they had a display for Too Faced and on it was the Summer Eye Palette. I totally fell in LOVE with it..the colours and the shimmer were right up my alley! I couldn't find a box though and when I asked the associate she said they were sold out and that should have been taken down. I was *so* disappointed. I came home and checked online, sold out. It's a Limited Edition palette, so I knew I wouldn't get one. I checked ebay and they were up to around $80. I wasn't paying that much for what I already considered an overpriced palette at about $45.
Patience payed off, when I finally found on on ebay in late August for about $35! Shipping was around $4, so it was still worth it! After I purchased it and I guess the interest perked up, she changed the prices to about $48. I was *so* happy that I found it when I did! Even now, when you look on ebay you won't find it for less than $80 shipped. Wow! Seriously! I am so, SO happy I have this! :)
This is what the packaging looks like, so pretty!
This is the back of the box. It says it's a limited edition resort-inspired eye shadow collection. I hate when companies hype stuff up to sell out by making it limited edition, such a scandal!
Inside the box, they included a sample of their shadow insurance. I already bought the full size and it's "ok".
And ta-da!!! This is the beautiful palette! So, gorgeous! At the top there is a slot that holds 3 cards that show you how to create a day look, a classic look and a fashion look. I'm sorry that I forgot to take pics of that for you girls! But, if I try the looks I'll post the card as well. Darren Geller. I pretty much only have one look when it comes to eyeshadow so we'll soon find out if I can make myself look like a clown! :)
This is the far left side. These shadows are bigger because they are the base colours. Top to bottom: Day look = Sugar Sand, Classic look = Peach Fuzz, Fashion look = Sunbeam. Sugar Sand is a shimmery colour and the other two are SUPER sparkly..which I adore!
Then, on the right you have the accent colours. The top row is Day look = Plumeria and Cocoa Beach. The middle row is Classic look = Coral Crush and Chocolate Sun. The bottom row is Fashion look = Mermaid and Toasted Coconut. I mixed and matched and used Coral Crush as a base with Mermaid as an accent and it looked amazing!!! The colour payoff and blendability were good and the shimmer was AMAZING. Just what I look for in a shimmer, with no fall out!
Here you can see the top row is day, middle row is classic and bottom row is fashion. Man, I just adore these colours!!! :D I am so afraid to use too much of it because I don't want it to end!! lol
What do you think?
Halfway through the week girlies!!!!
