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|
|Candy Coated: Peach Fuzz, Bubblegum, Blue Raspberry|
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.
