I've been after an "all in one" face palette for a while, and when I spotted this kit I just couldn't resist! With all the hype surrounding the Too Faced 'Sweet Peach' range I had really high hopes for this peach scented, quirky product... But does it live up to the hype?
The palette contains a highlighter, blusher and bronzer - all designed to provide an illuminated look to the skin with a peachy glow. The ombre tin packaging and the adorable peach mascot are something I usually stir clear from when it comes to beauty products (I usually lust after brands like Hourglass and Nars), but in this case the fun and exciting branding just drew me in!
The sickly peach scent is a nice addition but ofcourse not a reason to spend £34. When I swatched the shades instore I was impressed, the highlighter reminded me of Becca's infamous Champagne Pop and the blusher and bronzer seemed fairly pigmented - and with the beautiful peachy undertones I expected. Annoyingly, when using a brush with this palette it's a different story, every single brush I've tried just doesn't seem to pick up any of the product. The formulation just isn't there for me, it's not finely milled or highly pigmented which is something I expect from a palette like this! It's a shame because it's not even just one of the products, all three of the shades lack pigmentation and that silky soft feeling I want from my base products.
Overall I'm pretty gutted I didn't do my research and made an impulse purchase. I did actually pick up the Papa Don't Peach blusher for a giveaway on my twitter which will be going live 21/01/17 at 5pm. I think that seems like a much better product from the range compared to this palette. If you want to enter my twitter is 'jodiemelissaxo'
