EYE SHADOW

Too Faced ‘A Few of My Favorite Things Palette’

$56

.

This is a review of the Too Faced A Few of My Favorite Things Palette $56.  Its important to note this palette came out a few years ago and it was limited edition.  So, its not possible to get this particular palette anymore.  DAMN YOU Too Faced for making for making limited editions and putting eye catching glittery makeup in beautiful intricate packaging with cute names.    DAMN YOU!!

Now that my rant is over lets really look at this eye shadow palette closely.  I mean real closely.  Although the shadows are beautiful, this palette in my opinion is the most over hyped and talked about palette over the years.  Many people refer back to this palette time and again.

Yes, the packing of Too Faced makeup is second to none.  I’d like to know how much the company budget is for graphic design services and prototypes before any makeup is considered.  I have a sneaky suspicion the budget for packaging may be higher than the budget for the actual makeup.  Too Faced obviously has their finger on the pulse of design that gets customers to open their wallets.

EYESHADOW

.

The Too Faced A Few of My Favorite Things Palette includes the following shadows:

.

  • 12 nude shades…  A mix of light browns, medium browns, flesh tones and golds.
  • 5 dark shades…  1 cool brown, 1 dark blue, 1 dark brown, 1 burgandy and 1 black.
  • 3 other shades…  1 purple, 1 green and 1 glittery blue.

.

Okay so that is everything!  I feel fairly confident you can get 12 nude shades, 5 dark shades and 3 other shades from the drugstore without much of a problem, without fancy packaging and for less money$$$.
