Review: Too Faced Romantic Eye Palette

     For those who may not be familiar with them, Too Faced offers a few really great eyeshadow palettes. The one I'm reviewing is their newest (and my personal favorite.) Prior to that their collection included the Smokey Eye, Natural Eye, and the Naked Eye.

     What I love about these palettes is that they're all designed to be very user friendly, which makes them awesome for people who are new to make-up. Each palette contains 9 eyeshadows which are color coordinated into three different "looks"- namely the Day look, Classic look, and Fashion look. However, that doesn't mean people can't mix and match all the colors in the palette- some of my favorite looks have been made using colors from all three "looks." The layout for the three "looks" is a highlight shade (which is always the biggest), a lid color shade, and a crease/liner shade (which is always the darkest color).

All the palettes come with "How To" cards as well, which clearly lays out which colors they have used  for each "look" and where on the eye they applied.

     But once again, people shouldn't be afraid to branch out from these instructions- these cards are designed more for novices so they can get the basic feeling of where to apply and what colors work together.

     Alright, now let's get into this particular palette.

     I have obviously used it, so it looks a little grungy.  The colors are as follows:
Day Look: Soulmates (a glittery light peach), I Do (a matte taupe), Un-veil (a matte dark chocolate)
Classic Look: Kiss the Bride (a matte baby pink), Cut the Cake (a glittery lavender grey), First Dance (a matte plum).
Fashion Look: Bouquet Toss (a matte off-white), Honeymoon (a metallic green-gold), Ever After (a glittery metallic brown).

    I hate that the matte ones don't photograph well. But I'd have to say Cut the Cake is probably my favorite color- its really cool and different from other greys out there.

     Too Faced eyeshadows are one of my favorite to work with. They have good pigmentation, blend well, and have interesting colors. I think the reason I've been loving this palette so much is because it has different formulations of the matte, glitters, and metallics that make it very versatile.

So all and all, this guy gets a A! Great for people new to make-up, and great for those with experience. Awesome colors, awesome to work with. Love it!
