Review & Swatches: Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes Eyeshadow Palette

I've been after an all matte palette for a while and have toyed with the idea of the Morphe and Tarte ones. BUT THEN Too Faced released this palette and I was totally here for it. After swatching in person and being able to see that the pigmentation and quality was to the level of Too Faced that I had come to expect - and the fact that it smells of peaches!

The packing is perfect too - super slick, small enough to travel with and a pretty gold and peach ombre on the front. It has a snap shut lid too like the top of a clutch bag so it's satisfyingly safe and compact.

The shade selection is near enough exactly what I wanted with some great neutral crease shades, a few warmer hits of colour and a couple of darker shades to amp up the looks. I could definitely have done without the far left column as they're pretty light for my complexion and I can't see myself using them a huge amount.

I decided to have a little play around and see what kinda looks I could create with the palette alone. I went for a light neutral look, a darker smokey neutral look, then a smokey look with a punch of berry shades.

This was a very light and neutral look that I enjoyed wearing. It was easy to create and the shadows worked perfectly together. Like I said I don't think I'll get all that much use from the lighter shades from the palette but it's good to know they can create a really easy light, everyday look. 

I used Peach Meringue as an all over base. Peach Tea in the crease and for transition, Fresh Picked in the crease to deepen the colour, Just Peachy packed on the lid then Peach Butter on the brow bone for a bit of highlight.

I really enjoyed using the darker shades in the palette to create a warm toned smokey look which would be great for every day. It was also really easy to do and the shades went really well together.

I used Peach Cobbler in the crease as a base then Peach Tart in the crease to deepen it. Chocolate Dipped in the outer v and to darken it up a bit then smoked this partly onto my lower lash line. Finished it with Peach Cobbler on the lid and blended them all together.

Probably my favourite shadows from the palette, and the main reason I gravitated towards it in the first place. I created a deep berry toned smokey eye using the more berry/peach toned shades in the palette.

I used Just Ripe in the crease and lid as a base. Peach Sangria in the crease and then smoked out onto the lower lash line. Finished with Peach Punch on the lid and blended all together.

Overall as a palette all the shades performed really well. Naturally, some of the lighter shades were very close to my skin tone, but worked great as an all over lid colour. Even the palest shade in the palette would work well over an eye primer to set it or as a brow bone highlight. Blendability was great, pigmentation was a lot better than I was expecting. There was a little bit of kickback in the palette itself but that's very normal for matte shades. Peach Sangria was the only shade I noticed with considerable fallout but that wasn't a huge turnoff for me. As an stand alone palette it's great, especially if you like neutral, easy eye looks but this paired with a palette with high shine/foiled shadows would be a great combo.

I really like this palette so far and I'm looking forward to creating more looks with it! Have you tried this palette? What do you like pairing it with? If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to drop me a comment below!
