Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette

Too Fcaed, Sweet Peach, Eyeshadow Palette, Holiday 2016, Spring 2016, Beauty, Swatches, ReviewIf there was one beauty release I’ve been the most excited about, it is without a doubt the Too Faced Sweet Peach eyeshadow palette. When this beauty of a palette was first revealed by Too Faced, I just knew I had to get my hands on it! I even sat refreshing the Debenhams website every couple of minutes waiting for it to grace the screen and finally when it did I was lucky enough to snap it up! It was released as a limited edition palette back in Spring but luckily it is to be re-released for the upcoming holiday season! So, if you like what you see then you don’t want to miss this when it’s back in stock!

If you are familiar with the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palettes then it is a very similar idea and set-up. Except obviously this palette has a peach-y theme with a pretty peach-y pink outer casing and instead of the eye shadows having a chocolate scent it has a dreamy scent of peach! It also retails for the same price at £39 which is just a little higher in price than the Urban Decay Naked palettes however it contains a larger quantity of product so makes it worth the splurge.

Too Faced, Sweet Peach, Eyeshadow Palette, Review, Swatches, Holiday 2016, Spring, Beauty, MakeupThe palette contains 18 different shades similarly to the other large Too Faced palettes and offers a mixture of shimmery and matte shades. It is a very versatile palette with a varied shade range from summery corals and pinks to bronze-y shades as well as a selection of deep purple tones, rich browns and even a gorgeous olive green that would work well particularly at this time of year. I am particularly fond of the gorgeous light peachy and bronze-y shades that make for a golden-y eye look that wouldn’t look out of place on a Victoria Secret model! Not that shimmery eye makeup will turn me into a model but still it is worth it for that gorgeous effect!

From my experience with Too Faced eyeshadows, I have always been impressed by the formula and there is no exception with this palette. The shadows are buttery smooth, easy to blend and work with and also have great pigmentation. They also have a great lasting power too keeping in place from early morning til evening! Basically an all round good palette with a good formula and also a selection of shadows that are that little more unique than the usual neutral palette.

Having got back into wearing makeup again on a daily basis, I have been sticking pretty much to a solid consistent routine using the same products again and again and rarely changing it up. For someone who adores Autumn and particularly the makeup trends at this time of year, surprisingly I haven’t turned to dark lips and eyes, instead I’ve been loving a more Summer appropriate look with dewy skin, a peachy eye look and nude lips.

My base is the one area I’ve been sticking to a constant routine and hardly changing up. I start by priming with the Jouer Anti-Blemish Matte Primer which feels nice and calming on the skin but I can’t say it’s helped improve my skin long term. I then go in with my trusty Nars Sheer Glow foundation and top it off with the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer on any blemishes, again another favourite of mine! I then conceal under the eyes with the Mac Prep and Prime Highlighter in Light Boost with the yellow toned liquid working to highlight under my eyes and discard any darkness.

Before setting my base with the Chanel Les Beiges Powder, I use the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid Highlighter in Opal across my cheekbones and blend it out with my Beauty Blender. Before finishing off my face with a bit of bronzer to warm up my skin a little. Of course I am still obsessed with my favourite Honey Bronzer from The Body Shop.

I then move onto eyeshadow using the beautiful Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette which is full of gorgeous peachy and brown warm tones. I like to create a simple shimmery golden-y peachy look using mainly Nectar, Luscious, Cobbler and Caramelized which creates a gorgeous ‘golden goddess’ look that gives off extreme VS Angel vibes! Damn yeah! To finish off my eyes I coat on my favourite Make Up For Ever Smoky Extravagant mascara which leaves my lashes looking thick and full.

To finish off my look, I like to dabble in a few different lip shades since lipstick is my thing, if you haven’t noticed all ready! Currently though, I am loving one of the new Urban Decay Vice lipsticks in the shade Backtalk. A gorgeous cool toned pink with a comfortable matte finish. LOVE!

September Favourites

Kat Von D Liquid Lipstick, Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette, Sephora 55 Airbush Brush Collection, Review, Lovesick, VanillaIt’s hard to believe that the countdown to Christmas is now on. Three months people, three months. Summer is over and Autumn is beginning (finally!). Festive season excitement behind, September is now over and it’s time to round up my beauty favourites from the month. This month, I didn’t try many new things or change up my makeup that frequently but there is still a few items that I am desperate to have a little rave about!

A product that I’ve had in my stash for so long and for so long has received the silent treatment is the beauty that is the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette. I was so excited when this palette was released that I refreshed the Debenhams website basically every minute for hours waiting for it to be in stock. Obviously as you can see I was in luck but I did buy it at an inconvenient time as Summer came and I hardly wore makeup so this palette didn’t get much use! However I have pulled this out again to start getting use out of it especially since I need to review this beauty asap which I will do! The palette has some gorgeous golden-y peachy tones that make for a great everyday look and the shadow quality is impressive!

The next product I’ve been loving is an old favourite that many of you will be sick of hearing me rave about! I finally repurchased the Nars Creamy Radiant Concealer (full review here) which I just adore. I had been dabbling in a few different concealers recently and none of them offered the coverage and longevity that the Nars one delivers. I basically couldn’t wait any longer and had to get this wonder product back in my life. You either love it or you hate it but for me as a concealer for blemishes, it works incredibly well. Full coverage that lasts all day without being cakey! Perfect!

A couple of new products in my stash. Firstly, the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lovesick which is finally now stocked in the UK *happy dance*. I had been desperate to try these lipsticks for ages and I am so glad to have tried them now as they are so worth the hype! I love a good liquid lipstick and this is definitely one of my favourites. The shade Lovesick is a great cool toned pink shade that makes a great everyday shade. The formula is also comfortable and basically so far so good!

Lastly, a makeup brush that just blew me away from the first use, the Sephora #55 brush which I mentioned in this haul. I had heard so many great things about this brush so couldn’t wait to finally get my hands on it. I am also glad to say it lives well and truly up to all the hype. It is the perfect size for foundation and is beautifully soft. It is also not overly fluffy but also not too dense either which makes it just perfect! The handle on the brush is also a lot longer than most other makeup brushes I own which I really like. Most importantly though, it blends in foundation beautifully and with a natural finish!

Life Lately #5

May-life-lately-lifestyle-update-blogger-blog-beauty-makeupAnother month has came to an end meaning it’s time for another life lately post. Anyway I am sure you may be aware that I spent a lot of time over May studying for my exams hence my pretty messed up blogging schedule, apologies! My exams have finally came to an end thankfully and it’s been nice having the time now to just chill after spending the first half of the month buried into a pile of notes. With uni over for the year, it is rather strange not having a lot to do just now but at the same time it’s pretty nice to just relax for a bit!

So, in between my busy and quiet times of the month, I also went to see Busted live which was all kinds of amazing. If you are not aware, Busted are a British boyband who were basically my childhood and after 12 years they got back together. So it is an understatement to say I was excited. I left that night not feeling any disappointment! Again, please! That is probably the most excitement that happened this month except I did pick up the Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette which was obviously incredibly exciting. I mentioned it briefly here but once I get a little more use out of it I will pop up a review! Other than these incredibly exciting events, I have also spent a lot of my time off binge watching Parks and Recreation. I am obsessed and also kinda sad that I am nearly finished cause I just never want it to end. Sad life, indeed!

So whilst this month has been pretty quiet-ish, I am off to enjoy the sun come June. So since I am away I may be absence around these parts for a while in terms of replying to comments etc however I will have posts over my normal Mon-Wed-Fri schedule. As well as that, most of my posts will be Summer based so I hope you enjoy!

Catch up with May posts: May Goals, Minimal Jewellery Collection, Best Places to Buy Beauty Products, The Blush Tag, High End Products Worth the Splurge, Favourite Drugstore products and the Beauty Blender vs Real Techniques Sponge.

My Current Spring Glowy Makeup Menu

Spring-glowy-fresh-dewy-beauty-makeup-look-peach-palette-too-faced-highlighter-glowI would always think of myself being more into Fall makeup preferring bold lips and a semi-matte complexion however as of lately I am all over the fresh glowy bronzed look perfect for Spring. I have to blame the sudden summery weather that has hit the UK recently making me go all heart-eyed emoji over all the highlighters and shimmery bronzers! I also picked up a swoon-worthy peach-y toned palette that has Summer written all over it and I thought I would share my current favourite picks for a glowy, bronzed, looks-like-I’ve-been-on-holiday look. P.S Happy 500 posts to me 🙂


To start, I’ve been loving mixing in my Nars Sheer Glow foundation with the Nars Copacabana Illuminator . The foundation offers a long lasting satin base which offers a great build-able coverage. Teamed with the liquid highlighter, it adds a glowy effect to the base. I then as normal go in with concealer on any blemishes, I am currently using the NYX Concealer. I then use the Mac Prep and Prime highlighter in Light Boost to highlight under my eyes.  To finish, I then set my base with the Chanel Les Beiges powder to slightly mattify but still allow a a bit of shine to come through.


To amp up the bronze-y glowy look, it’s all about the cheek products. Instead of my usual matte bronzer, I’ve been all over shimmery bronzers lately. I have been obsessed with the Soap and Glory Wonderbronze Shimmer Brick that I couldn’t wait to dig out again! This bronzer just adds a gorgeous sun-kissed look to the face. On top, the Tarte blush in Exposed acts well to compliment the bronzed look by adding a little more warmth and definition to the face. To achieve that overall glowy look, the Becca highlighter in Champagne Pop is the perfect addition. The formula is super buttery and smooth and the shade is just perfect.


A very exciting new addition to my makeup collection and that has sparked my love for all the spring makeup lately is the Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette. Unfortunately this is a limited edition product and I believe no longer available so apologies for mentioning it but damn is it beautiful! The shade range is perfect and great for creating a light shimmery peach-y bronzed eye. After adding some mascara, I then move on to lips and I am loving a peach-y combination. I’ve loved mixing a bit of Charlotte Tilbury Sexy Sienna with Bitch Perfect for the perfect mix of coral-y peach and a light glossy nude.
