Too Faced The Return of Sexy Palette | First Impressions

Hi Beauty Lovers!

Thumbs up for consistent posting these past few weeks! I hope you've enjoyed my more frequent post's - and dare I say better quality photographs as well as my venture into YouTube.

To keep this post from spilling into next week I'll be giving you my first impressions on the palette and shades overall and reviewing the swatches and individual shades in another post - I did this with the Urban Decay Vice 3 palette and I think it worked a lot better.

As I mentioned in a previous post I bought a few products from Debenhams during a sale, and this was an item I'd had my eye on for a while, so it swiftly and without regret got added to my basket.

I find myself at a loss for words with the packaging, I love some elements to it, like the gold lettering and the embossed print in the case, however I just do not like the feel of it one bit. It's nothing detrimental that would ever stop me using or reaching for the palette, I just cant quite put my finger on what it is that I don't love about it.

The inside of the palette oozes luxury, the eye shadows are so gorgeous and shimmery, they scream night time glam. As you can see from the photographs, the eye shadows are logically grouped into coordinating colours which relates to an eye look Too Faced have created, the neutrals are 'The Ingenue', the purples 'The Icon' and the greys 'The Bombshell'. Without a second thought my favourites are The Ingenue shades, there completely my style - I love any gold eye shadow!

This palette wont be for everyone, you really have got to be a fan of shimmer, because the one thing this palette lacks is a matte shade. This need not be a problem, I'm sure if you delved into your make up stash you'd find a matte eye shadow somewhere. Also this, in my opinion isn't your every day palette, for me it has the look and feel of a 'going out' palette. Dont get me wrong, there are shades that would look beautiful for an everyday look, but for me its not one I reach for on a typical work day.

The palette comes with a mini Shadow Insurance Eye Primer and a full sized Perfect Eyes waterproof black eye liner. It costs £38.50, but the eyeliner alone retails at £15, so broken down like that it seems like a reasonable priced palette.

There are some gorgeous shades included, ones that have caught my eye are a bright gold and the rosey pink - hopefully they swatch and look amazing.

What do you think to this palette?
