Too Faced ♥ Sephora 15th Anniversary Palette Review & Swatches

Hi! So I recently was in Sephora (when am I not in there) and I spotted the Too Faced ❤ Sephora 15th Anniversary Palette and it looked amazing. I swatched it in the store and the colors were GORGEOUS. I had to have it. I’ve been wearing it a lotttttt lately. I just can’t stop. I know usually your supposed to take pictures and swatches before you start using it but I couldn’t help myself. So I’m sorry if the palette is a little messy :/ (I also apologize for the quality. I know it’s not the greatest but I’m using what I have right now which is my iPhone and natural lighting haha.)

Here are the pictures!

The palette is a tin material and is held together by magnet, I think. It’s not a very strong magnet but it keeps the palette closed. Along with the palette, they have also included a tutorial book with 15 looks, one for each of the 15 yea anniversary. The tutorials are super fun, I love them!

IMG_2612The inside of the palette has 10 eyeshadows, 2 bronzers, 1 blush, a little brush, and a mini version of Too Faced Shadow Insurance (which is an awesome eyeshadow primer). The two shadows on the left Piano Keys and Behind the Counter are matte. Piano Keys has tiny bits of glitter but they are really not noticeable. The rest are shimmery and beautiful. On the bottom of the palette there is one matte bronzer, one shimmery bronzer, and a peachy-pink blush.

LR: Piano Keys, So Cal, TF <3s the Cast, Jer Jer, 545 Market

Piano Keys, like I said, is matte with teeny tiny bits of glitter in it that really are not noticeable at all. It’s a soft off-white color.

So Cal is a light peachy-pink color.

TF <3’s the Cast is a golden olive green, reeeeally pretty.

Jer Jer shows up more true to color in the palette in the middle photo. It’s a copper penny color. Sort of reminds me of UD’s Baked eyeshadow from the BOS IV palette.

545 Market is a shimmery reddish brown color. Really pigmented.

LR: Behind the Counter, Soho, Envy, David & Marg, 1998

Behind the Counter is a matte, soft brown. For being a matte it is really easy to blend and work with.

Soho is a softer purple/lavender.

Envy is a deep purple shimmer.

David & Marg is a teal shimmer and is beautiiiiiful. It might be my favorite in the whole palette.

1998 is a bright purple/pink with gold glitter in it but the glitter is fine, not chunky, so there isn’t a lot of fall out when you use it.

LR: Chocolate Soleil Bronzer, Sun Bunny Bronzer: Lighter shade, darker shade, and then blended together, Who’s Your Poppy? Blush

Chocolate Soleil Bronzer…ok this actually smells DELICIOUS. Every time I use it, it just smells sooooo good. It’s a matte bronzer and I love it.

Sun Bunny Bronzer has two different shades. The top is lighter and the bottom a bit darker. They are both shimmery and when blended together they don’t look much different than the darker shade.

Who’s Your Poppy? Blush is a shimmery golden pink-peach color. I absolutely love this and I think it would look great on most skin tones.

 

I think the palette is great. I’ve never been too fond of TF palettes before but this one takes the cake. This palette retails for $52.00, and considering it includes 10 eyeshadows, 2 bronzers, and a blush I think it’s a really good deal.

It’s sold exclusively at Sephora.

Makeup on a friend – Emily

Hi guys! I had a day off last weekend so I decided to play with some makeup and use my friend Emily’s face as a canvas! The look we were going for was mostly neutral colors and of course a smoky eye 😉

This is Emily.

This is Emily 🙂

Too Faced Shadow Insurance

Too Faced Shadow Insurance

To start off the look, I primed Emily’s eyes with TooFaced Shadow Insurance to make sure the eyeshadow doesn’t crease and lasts alllllll day long.

On her eyes I used shadows from the Tarte Carried Away Collector’s Set (from the holiday 2012 collection) and Urban Decay‘s Naked palette.

Tarte’s Carried Away Collector’s Set

From the Tarte Carried Away palette, I used Pyramid Gold (bottom left with brush in it) all over her lid. Volcanic Ash (top left) was used in the outer corner to darken up the look and I blended it up into the crease. Snowfall in Paris (top right) was used in Emily’s inner corner to brighten the eyes and make them POP! I took Golden Gate Bridge (bottom right) and patted it on the center lid, over top of Pyramid Gold, to add some dimension.

Urban Decay’s Naked palette

To complete the look, I used Urban Decay’s Naked to blend out the crease and get rid of any harsh lines and for a brow highlight I used the color Virgin.

Benefit's Erase Paste

Benefit’s Erase Paste

Before we started, Emily applied her own BB Cream. Then to clean up the look I used Benefit’s Erase Paste in shade No. 1.

MAC MSF Natural

To set the concealer and the rest of Emily’s face, I used Mac’s Mineralized Skinfinish Natural in Light.

Bourjois Chocolate Bronzer

To warm up the face I used Bourjois’ Chocolate Bronzer. I love this bronzer and it smells soooo delicious, just like chocolate! For blush I used Tarte’s Amazonian Clay blush in magical.

To finish the eyes, I lined her eyes with Nyx‘s Collection Noir liquid eyeliner and put on a couple of coats of Benefit’s They’re Real! mascara.
