I’m a little confused? As the Too Faced That’s What Pretty Girls Are Made Of Palette isn’t showing up on the Canadian Sephora site? But I was sent it to review? So I’m gonna do it, as the sale is approaching fast. It does show up on the US site of course, and I’m hoping it’ll be in stores for the sale because that would be a total bummer.
Seriously though. THE NAME???? Too Faced That’s What Pretty Girls Are Made Of ??? I kind of hate that name to be honest. It’s a bit…silly. But if you’re looking for value, this palette has it!
That’s 20 eyeshadows you get in the shades Turtle Dove, Dream On, After Hours, Fawned of You, Knockout, Paper Roses, Kindness is Free, Mauvelous, Be You, Secret Lovers, Heaven, Shiny Happy, Honey Pot, Don’t Settle, Girly, Totally Fetch, Live it Up, Too Glam, Head Over Heels, Chocolate Moon.
Plus two blushes in the shades Papa Don’t Peach and Sweet Pink, a Chocolate Soleil bronzer and a highlighter in Inner Light too! And some cute little brushes stuck in there in case you dig ’em. I remember the days BEFORE my addiction started and I had no idea about REAL makeup brushes. I would have totally just used these brushes in the palette back then, because you can. You also get a deluxe Better Than Sex Mascara in the set, which I didn’t show and an obnoxious glittery pink bag to hold the palette in. 😛
It looks pretty similar to last year’s Too Faced Holiday palette that’s for sure, so if you have that I say you can skip this one. There are some repeat shades in the eyeshadows. The Too Faced That’s What Pretty Girls Are Made Of Palette has a better cheek section this year though compared to last year’s. And I also think the palette is more pink toned too. Which can be good if you like pink, but bad if you don’t. I guess pink goes with that whole pretty girls made of theme which I really detest. SOME OF US GIRLS LIKE BLACK. AND COMBAT BOOTS. AND KHAKI. AND CAMO. GEEZE LOUISE ALREADY I’m DONE.
Too Faced That’s What Pretty Girls Are Made Of Palette Swatchy Time!
I swatched the palette by rows this time. Two passes for each swatch.
And the cheek section swatchy time!
All in all, it’s not a bad palette. You get mattes, shimmers, metallics-everything you need. But I don’t think it’s as good quality as last years to be honest. I think the shadows aren’t as pigmented and smooth as last years. They’re a bit stiffer, chalkier, and not as easy to work with. I don’t know? I think everyone is kind of cheaping out quality wise this year to be honest. All the holiday palettes I’ve tried have been just ok, except for the Tarte Blush one. I mean they’re not bad, just not stellar if ya’ know what I mean. But maybe these value holiday sets aren’t supposed to give us A+ quality? Should they? They are giving us a lot of bang for our buck, yes? Am I being too much of a stickler? Maybe.
Here’s a look I did with some pink and blues from the Too Faced That’s What Pretty Girls Are Made Of Palette:
Not bad hey? I love blue eyeshadows! But then I tried a look with Mauvelous on the lid, because that shade spoke to me.
EH. It was just ok. Nothing special like I thought it’d be.
I don’t know, maybe I’m just being too picky? The shadows are ok, with some being better than others. But that’s the case with most of these value palettes I guess. It can’t be ALL perfect, right? The cheek products are really pretty though! That side of the palette I love, and kind of wish they’d sell separately.
I do think the Too Faced That’s What Pretty Girls Are Made Of Palette is worth the money though. In the US it retails for $56, so if it DOES get here I bet it’ll be $66 or so. A pretty good deal that’s for sure! But I’m a hardened makeup junkie so I expect just a leetle bit more. I personally? Think this is a skip. Sorry Too Faced!
I’m kind of disappointed with this year’s value holiday palette offerings to be honest. But again, maybe I’m being a bit too hard on the brands? I keep saying that hey? Am I? What do you think? I’m starting to feel like these are like “GIFT WITH PURCHASE” when it comes to quality. Is that bad? Or good enough?
*product sent by PR for review, thoughts are mine as always!
