Too Faced Sugar Pop Eyeshadow Palette

Look at this.  An eyeshadow palette with macarons on it.  Worth buying already, right?

Inside, the macaron theme continues - distinctly sugary shades which put me in the mind of cake.

As usual, for Too Faced, this palette is nicely laid out into three eyeshadow looks - Sweet & Spicy, the most neutral, least colourful variety; Sugar Plums, a mix of very pretty purple toned shadows; and Candy Coated, a somewhat bold combination of some very bright colours.

Rock Candy, Macaron, Malted Milk Ball

Did you know that Malted Milk Balls are actually just American for Malteser?  Anyway, of the Sweet & Spicy mix, Rock Candy is a pale matte cream base shade; Macaron is an interesting orangey peach with gold shimmer; Malted Milk Ball is a shimmering metallic mid-brown.

Sugar Plums: Strawberry Ice, Sugared Violet, Blackberry
The Sugar Plums combo contains Strawberry Ice, a frosty pale lavender toned pink; Sugared Violet is an amazing stormy violet with a metallic finish; Blackberry is a matte purplish brown berry.  

Candy Coated: Peach Fuzz, Bubblegum, Blue Raspberry
And the crazier Candy Coated combo: Peach Fuzz is a soft matte peach sprinkled with gold glitter; Bubblegum is a shimmery mid-pink; Blue Raspberry is a frosty aqua turquoise.

Being most scared of the Candy Coated combo, I tried it out - and found that thanks to the soft, blendable textures, I could recreate a slightly more subtle version of the very brightly coloured look illustrated in the foldout look book in the palette.  It's still pretty bright, but not eye poppingly bright.
At £32, this is a lovely little palette, with some interesting and unusual colour combinations in it, perfect for spring/summer.  It makes a nice change from the neutral palettes Too Faced are known for, and it's a great example of a wearably colourful palette.  Find it at Debenhams and all the usual Too Faced stockists soon.

  1. Love the colours in that palette! I have the habit of experimenting with eyeshadows and I get excited each time I see a different shade to play with. Thanks for sharing!
