I’m so excited to be writing this post today! When the Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes Eyeshadow Palette released in August I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. I almost bought it in store the first week it was out but unfortunately someone had walked away with the in-store tester and I refused to buy it until I could swatch it.
I am so incredibly blessed because my Mom knew I wanted the palette and gifted it to me for my birthday! Best Mom ever, for more reasons than for getting me such a great gift. I swatched it immediately and took some flatlays because we all know palettes are never as beautiful to photograph once you’ve used them a few times. If you follow me on instagram you have probably seen this palette a few times 😉
Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes Eyeshadow Palette
The Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes palette retails at Sephora for $55CAD. It contains 12 Matte shades with the exception of one (I’ll get into that in the swatches). The colours in the palette are peachy orange, pink and brown. Each shade is 1.25g for a total of 15g total. This works out to $3.67CAD/gram.
I nearly always love Too Faced’s packaging. I love the packaging on the Chocolate Bon Bons and Natural Love palettes, and now the Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes palette. The design on the cardboard packaging features a gold peach containing the name of the palette.
The palette has some weight to it. It feels expensive with it’s gold reflective case and bubbled pink cover. The clasp to open the palette features two little hearts!
It also smells amazing. The back of the Just Peachy Mattes Palette reads “infused with peach and sweet fig cream” and I believe it! The scent wafts towards me whenever I open the palette. I love it, but if you are sensitive to scent be aware that it’s potent.
All the shades in this palette follow what I would expect from a Peaches & Cream theme. Each shade has a peachy undertone and the colour scheme features creams, peaches, pinks and browns. With a themed palette like this most of your makeup looks are going to look similar in one way or another.
I knew this going in and I’m fine with it, but if you don’t like peach tones this palette isn’t for you.
I’m disappointed with how some shades look almost identical to others on the eye. Peach Meringue and Peach Butter are the two lightest shades, and though the latter has a pink undertone they look identical when I wear them. Peach Tea & Fresh Picked are also very similar.
Pigmentation, Blend & Fallout
Almost every shade in the Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes Palette is insanely pigmented. The first time I dipped my brush in and applied to my eyelid I was like woaaah. I haven’t noticed any patchiness in any of the shades. The lightest shade, Peach Meringue, is the least pigmented of the palette in my opinion. It’s a cream beige and because of how pale I am it doesn’t show up well (Peach Butter is just a tad bit better). I use it mostly to set my eyeshadow primer so it doesn’t bother me.
Because of the crazy pigmentation I have to create my eye looks slowly so I don’t overdo it. Most shadows blend well but it’s best to work slowly and deliberately, especially when applying the darker shades in the palette. Just Ripe, the darkest shade in the second row doesn’t blend well for me at all. It needs to be built up and I always have a harsh line when I try to blend it out.
There’s a small amount of kick up from these shades, but I’ve seen a lot worse, especially from shimmer & glitter shades. I typically don’t have much fallout under my eyes if any when using this palette.
Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes
Swatches – No Primer
Top Row: Peach Meringue, Peach Tea, Peach Cobbler, Peach Tart
The top row contains brown/neutral toned shades. They aren’t really neutral, but it’s the closest thing you’ll get in the Peachy Matte palette. Peach Meringue is great for setting eye primer, and Peach Tea is a lovely orangey/tan transition shade. I use Peach Cobbler & Peach Tart to define the crease and outer corners of my eyes.
Middle Row: Peach Butter, Just Peachy, Peach Punch, Just Ripe
The middle row moves to deeper peachy pinks. Peach butter is what I use if I want some kind of a cut crease using this palette. It doesn’t show up well against my skin tone because I’m so pale, but on the eye it’s a bit more noticeable. Just Peachy is my go to lid shade when I’m creating a simple daytime look. Peach Punch was well named because the shade is so vibrant and punchy! Just Ripe is a deeper plummy shade which I sometimes use in the outer corners, but as I said above it doesn’t blend very well for me.
Bottom Row: Peaches And Cream, Fresh Picked, Peach Sangria, Chocolate Dipped
Peaches and Cream & Fresh Picked can be used as transitions, crease shades, or lid shades depending on what look you’re going for. Peach Sangria is the shade I was talking about in the At A Glance section of the review that isn’t quite a matte. When I hold the palette to the light I see little satiny flecks. It still looks fairly matte on the eye, but since this is supposed to be an all-matte palette I’m not quite sold on the flecks. It’s a gorgeous shade though and it blends like a dream! Chocolate Dipped is the darkest shade and is great for making an eyeliner effect or deepening the corners of the eye.
Wear Time & Versatility
I have no problems with getting long wear out of these shades. They’re a lot more pigmented on the eye than they are in my swatches. I swatched without a primer, but I always use primer on my eye so the shades are a lot punchier when worn. My eye looks last a solid 8-12+ hours!
Do I recommend?
For me personally this palette checks all the boxes. Pigment? Check. Blend? Check (aside from Just Ripe) Fallout? Check. Whether you like this palette or not will depend on if you prefer shimmers and glitter shades to mattes and if orangey tones are your thing. If not it’s a given that you probably won’t like this palette.
Because many of the shades are somewhat similar, like Peach Meringue & Peach Butter or Fresh Picked & Peach Cobbler, you aren’t getting something especially different from each shade but I do believe that they all compliment each other well. There aren’t really any shades that you can’t pair together.
If you like matte and peach toned shades I highly recommend the Too Faced Peachy Matte Eyeshadow Palette. It may just be my first Holy Grail palette! I’m not planning on buying the White Peach palette, the colours in this one are a lot more “me”.
