A LOOK AT THE TOO FACED PEACHES & CREAM COLLECTION

THE TOO FACED PEACHES AND CREAM COLLECTION HAS FINALLY COME TO THE UK!

When Too Faced created the Sweet Peach palette, it was an absolute hit for me and is the only palette that I have hit pan on; I loved it so much that I bought the same palette as a spare in case I did hit pan in some of my favourite shades or if it was going to be discontinued. So, of course when they announced they were bringing out a Peaches and Cream collection out last summer, I was patiently trying to find blog reviews that would mention when the collection would be in the UK! Of course, it has only I launched on Debenhams this month and I decided to purchase a few pieces the day that the collection launched. Now, the collection was available from the Too Faced store in Carnaby Street, London or online at Sephora and Too Faced. However, I am not in London that much, at the moment, and I didn't want to have to pay tax and customs on a few pieces as that can sometimes double my end total. I patiently waited and finally I have some pieces in my hands.  I have been waiting almost eight months to buy this collection, so I was hoping that it would be amazing!

The whole collection has not launched on the Debenhams website, although I do believe they are only missing the lipsticks (so it is not a huge deal as I have too many lipsticks already that I barely wear). I only wanted to buy a few pieces from this collection, as it is quite expensive, and I wanted to get products that I knew I would use time and time again and they wouldn't just go in a drawer and only be used a few times. That's why I thought I would buy items that you would probably also be interested in buying that are staples in every makeup bag! I did want to buy the foundation as well as I have heard some good reviews about it but the shade selection on the Debenhams website didn't seem to show a shade that I could match to my skin. I think the foundation is definitely something you have to swatch in a store, and I do know that this collection has been released in a few Debenhams stores in some major cities. This collection is all about the mattes and achieving that matte makeup look, which is something that I am not usually a fan of but I am interested to see how this works with my skin type and what the end result looks like. Plus I am always a fan of any products that will give a soft blurred focus!

The Too Faced Peaches & Cream collection is available from DebenhamsSephora and Too Faced.




JUST PEACHY MATTE EYESHADOW PALETTE

Of course I had to buy one of the eyeshadow palettes in this collection; I decided to go with the Just Peachy all matte eyeshadow palette as this seemed to be a palette I would use a lot. There is the White Peach palette, but the shades didn't seem to be ones that I would use that often, whereas I love to wear really rich and warm peach shades in the Summer. In this palette there are 12 beautiful, buttery warm-toned shades that are perfect for creating any look for any occasion. I am not going to talk too much about this palette as I am planning on doing a whole dedicated blog post to it, but this palette is really pretty. I love how this palette is all matte as I usually tend to go for a matte eye look during the day and don't often wear shimmer shadows unless I am going out somewhere. It is obvious that Too Faced really thought about the shade selection for this palette; the shades are all so wearable, they compliment each other, they can be used to create multiple looks and they can be worn on almost every skin tone. These are such perfect shades for the Summer months and I know that this will be a palette that I will be using quite a bit this year. When I touched these shadows to swatch them on my arm, they feel a lot stiffer than other Too Faced palettes that I own, however when I use a brush there is a bit of kick up - but the kick up is not too major. These shadows apply so easily with any type of brush and the pigmentation is amazing. It is so easy to build up the colour and they blend out beautifully. My only criticism is that the peach scent is a lot stronger in this whole collection in comparison to the really lovely sweet peach collection; which is almost like a candied peach, whereas this scent is is not as sweet. The scent does sometimes give me a bit of a headache (only when I use multiple products at a time) but it is not too big of an issue for me, but could be a dealbreaker for others. This is a stunning palette and I will write a full review of this palette in the next few days for you to read all the positives and negatives (not that there is much wrong with this palette)!

This palette retails for £33 from DebenhamsSephora and Too Faced.

PRIMED & PEACHY SKIN PERFECTING FACE PRIMER

I am not always a huge fan of primers as I sometimes find that primers just accentuate any dry areas on my face. I often find myself only wearing primers that are specifically hydrating or if I have exfoliated with my Clarisonic Mia 2. When I was looking at the products in this collection, I decided to pick up the primer because I was curious to see how it would work with my skin type. I am actually a huge fan of this primer and have been wearing it quite a bit in the last week or so. Firstly, it is a cooling primer so is perfect for this warm days as it doesn't feel like you have a primer on. I actually love wearing this on its own without foundation on; it has a peach tint to it which seems to even out my skin tone and just leaves my skin looking like it has a Snapchat filter on. It does minimise the appearance of pores and gives a blurred finish to the skin. I love how it leaves my skin feeling soft and is definitely going to be perfect for anyone who has oily skin. If you have dry skin then this might not be the right product for you, but because I only have dryness in certain areas I can get away with wearing this primer. It also is great under foundation as it helps to make my foundation last such a long time. I do find that it takes some time to blend it as it does seem to sit on top of the skin but after some blending it gives me a flawless finish.

This primer retails for £27 from DebenhamsSephora and Too Faced.



PEACH PERFECT MATTIFYING LOOSE SETTING POWDER

Purchasing the loose setting powder from the new collection from Too Faced was a no-brainer as I needed to buy a new powder as my current favourite had recently run out. I am a huge fan of the Laura Mercier Translucent loose setting powder, but I wanted to try different powders to see if any were just as good. I would say that this powder is close but I still prefer the Laura Mercier powder more. I love the packaging of this powder and it looks so pretty. I also love that this has a peach tint to the powder which helps to even out my skin tones and it doesn't make me look like I am wearing a peach powder. It is definitely not a brightening powder for me skin tone, but if you have a deep skin tone then this could definitely be used as a brightening powder for under the eyes. This does not look cakey when I set my foundation with this powder. It also helps make my skin look flawless and natural, without being too heavy on the skin. It is so finely milled that it glides seamlessly onto the skin whilst still looking natural. I wouldn't say that this is a setting powder that is good for baking with. I am able to use a damp beautyblender with my Laura Mercier powder to set my under eye concealer but I cannot do that with this powder. When I tried using a damp beautyblender, it turned into a paste and became much more of a peach colour which was something that I did not want to put on my face when I had spent so much time blending my face makeup out. Apart from that, it is a great powder just not for baking with!

This loose setting powder retails for £20 from DebenhamsSephora and Too Faced.



PEACH MIST MATTIFYING SETTING SPRAY

Setting sprays are something that I need in my makeup routine; it doesn't matter whether I have minimal makeup on or if I have gone full glam, I need to have a setting spray. I had heard so many good things about this setting spray and I wanted to see what the fuss was about. I think this setting spray is more for someone who needs a setting spray that will mattify the skin and to control shine throughout the day. This definitely mattifies the skin and for me it makes me look too matte. Because I don't have oily skin, I don't have to worry about using shine-controlling products, but I know that some of you will have oily skin and then this is the product for you. I need a setting spray that will give me a natural luminous glow and this is just too mattifying for me. This does keep my makeup looking flawless for hours. I wore this last night and my makeup looked perfect from 6pm to 1am and it looked great, it was just too matte for me. I am also not a massive fan of this setting spray because of the scent. I have already mentioned with the palette that this collection's scent is a lot stronger than the sweet peach collection and it is just a bit too much for me when I use the spray. However, the scent does vanish after a while.

This setting spray retails for £27 from DebenhamsSephora and Too Faced.

The whole Peaches & Cream collection from Too Faced is available from multiple stores, including DebenhamsSephora and Too Faced. There are other products in the collection including cream blush, highlighter and bronzer, as well as a pressed powder, powder bronzer and lipsticks.





Have you tried anything from the Too Faced Peaches & Cream collection? Are you a fan of any of the products and are there any other products that you really would love to try?

  1. I have only tried the Better than sex mascara and shadow insurance from Too Faced. For some reason I haven't tried many of their products and I don't really know why! The packaging on pretty much all of their products are so nice. This collection sounds really nice. I love the look of the mattifying spray. I was looking at the hangover primer but I'm worried it won't be right for my skin as it's oily - I have read it's meant to suit all. Have you tried that one it may work well with your skin type.
