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 beautiful palette as a gift. I swatched it immediately and took some flatlays because we all know palettes are never as beautiful as the first time you open them! If you follow me on instagram you have probably seen this palette a few times already 😉
Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes Palette Review
The Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes Eyeshadow 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 Peachy Mattes palette are creams, peaches, pinks and browns. Each shade contains 1.25g for a total of 15g of product. This works out to $3.67CAD/gram.
I always love Too Faced’s packaging. My Chocolate Bon Bons palette has the cutest packaging with heart shaped eyeshadow pans and I adore the packaging of the Natural Love Palette and my Natural Face Palette. The Peachy Matte Palette is no exception, the design on the outer cardboard packaging features a gold peach with “Just Peachy Mattes” printed inside it. Love it!
This palette itself has some weight to it. It’s gold reflective case and bubbled pink cover feels luxurious! The clasp to open the palette features two little hearts.
It also smells amazing. The palette is “infused with peach and sweet fig cream”. The scent is heavenly, it wafts towards me whenever I open it!
All the shades in the Peachy Matte Palette are what I would expect from a Peaches & Cream theme. The colour story 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 want something unique from every makeup look this palette isn’t for you.
There are a few shades that are very similar on the eyes. 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 palette is decently pigmented. The shadows aren’t as pigmented as my ABH Soft Glam Palette but they apply and build up well on the eyes. The lightest shade, Peach Meringue, is the least pigmented of the palette in my opinion. It’s a cream beige and doesn’t show up well against my skin tone. Peach Butter is similar, it doesn’t really have a lot of colour payoff on my skin. I use both shades to set my eyeshadow primer.
The majority of the shades in the palette blend well for me. Just Ripe is the one exception, it doesn’t like to move with my brush so I generally avoid it. Other than that I love how easy this formula is to blend! I need to be careful when working with the darker shades though, they tend to get muddy if I over-blend.
There’s a small amount of kick-up in the pan from these shadows. but I’ve seen a lot worse. Matte shades generally aren’t the issue when it comes to fallout & kick-up, shimmer shadows are usually the culprit! I typically don’t have see fallout under my eyes with these shades.
Too Faced Just Peachy Matte Palette Swatches
Top Row: Peach Meringue, Peach Tea, Peach Cobbler, Peach Tart
The top row of the peachy mattes palette contains brown & peachy 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 of the Palette moves to deeper peachy pinks. Peach Butter is what I use if I want some kind of a cut crease with 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 plum eyeshadow which I sometimes use in the outer corners of my eyes, but as I said before 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 kind of look you’re going for. It’s debatable if Peach Sangria can actually be called a matte. When I hold the palette to the light I see little glitter flecks. It still looks pretty matte on the eyes, but since this is supposed to be an all-matte palette I’m not 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 outer V of your eyes.
Look 1: Peach Sparkle
I’ve been updating all of the old makeup looks in my reviews but I liked this one too much to delete it. Plus my hair was curled, I’m so bad at curling my hair! When I succeed I want to savour the moment. I never wrote down what shades I used for this eyeshadow look ( I did for the next 3) but I do remember adding a pop of pink sparkle to the lid with the ColourPop Super Shock Shadow Tea Party! I still love using that SSS with the Peachy Matte Palette.
Look 2: Peach Daydream
For this next look I did something that I rarely do… I wore lashes without any eyeliner! I rarely go without eyeliner, I feel naked without it. These Esqido Peaches & Cream lashes have a black lash band and give the appearance of wearing eyeliner so it’s a good compromise.
For my second eyeshadow look I took the shade Peaches & Cream and blended through the crease, followed by Fresh Picked. I winged out the outer corners of my eyes with Peach Cobbler.
On the outer 2/3 of my eyelids I pressed on some Just Peachy and brightened the inner 1/3 with Peach Butter. This is where I would have liked to have a champagne shimmer shade in the palette. I worked with what I had. This would be a great look to wear out for brunch in the Spring & Summer.
My lipstick is the Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in the shade Peach Meringue!
Look #3: Peach Bellini
For this look I wanted a deeper, pinker vibe. I didn’t create a whole lot of depth in my last look because I wanted to keep it light & airy. Not this time!
I began with Fresh Picked in the crease, followed by Just Peachy at the edges. Next I dragged some Peach Cobbler through the outer V and went over it with Peach Tart to add some depth. I pressed the shade Peach Punch all over me eyelid. It’s such a punchy shade, I love it!
To finish off my look I pressed a small amount of my Tea Party Super Shock Shadow on my eyelids and applied a thin line of brown ColourPop Gel Eyeliner in the shade Call Me. Pop on some lashes, and Voila! You’re ready for a Summer Soirée!
My lipstick here and in the next look is the Too Faced Gingerbread Girl Melted Matte Lipstick!
Look #4: Smokey Peach
You didn’t think I would leave it at three looks did you? I absolutely had to show you one more eyeshadow look. This is a smokey eye featuring four shades only.
Peach Tea is the transition shade I chose for my crease. It’s more brown toned than all the other pinky transition shades so it pairs well with the darker shades in the palette. On the inner portion of my eyelids I used the shade Peach Cobbler, and blended it together with Peach Tart. I ran into a bit of trouble here. You can see that they didn’t quite mesh together well on the outer corner of my eyes. I rolled with it!
To add the dimension I wanted I used the shade Chocolate Dipped, in the outer corners. If I’m being honest have you ever heard of a chocolate dipped peach? I sure haven’t!
Do I recommend?
For me the Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes Palette checks all the boxes. Pigment? Check. Blend? Check (aside from Just Ripe) Fallout? Check. This palette won’t be for everybody. If you prefer shimmers or don’t like peachy makeup, well… I think it’s obvious this palette won’ be for you.
Many of the shades are somewhat similar so you aren’t getting something especially different from each shade; However, I do believe that they all complement each other well. There aren’t any shades that you can’t pair together so it’s fool proof as a colour story.
If you like matte and peach toned shades I highly recommend this palette. It may just be my first Holy Grail palette! I’m not planning on buying the White Peach palette, which is Too Faced’s shimmer version of this one. The peach shades are more “Me”!
