Firstly, Happy Labor day to all my American friends 😀 Its officially the end of summer which means autumn is beginning. The thing I love about autumn is the cozy atmosphere, warm colors, and comfy knit wear. But most of all I love that I now get to play around with all my gorgeous emerald and metalic shades for the eyes, and bold, dark, wine stained shades for the lips 😀 So whats more fitting then showing you guys the much talked about Too Faced Pretty Rebel Palette!? Today I’ll be showing you some swatches and giving a full review.
North American’s can find this palette at your nearest Too Faced counter ($46). For all my Europeans and Intenationals, you can purchase this item from the British retailer beautybay.com (36 British Pounds).
What It Is:
Even pretty girls break the rules. Be as rebel as you want to be with 10 powerful after-hours approved (and all new) shadows in the deepest jewel tones, the most bad ass metallics and one scene-stealing pink.

Now here’s an actual look at the shadows
Charming: Cool toned brown with slight purple and mauve undertones in a matte finish. Swatches patchy and uneven but actually works really well in the crease for some definition or as a transition shade. Its pretty pigmented but a bit chalky and a tad bit rough in texture. Yet it was easy enough to blend.
Girly: Metallic green with a brown duo chrome. This is a way cool shade. I love these duo chrome shades. Its really pigmented, very smooth in texture and easy to blend. (Wet N’ Wild also has a similar shade in the Comfort Zone Palette that’s pretty insane).
Totally Fetched: Hot pink with a slight purple sheen and tiny tiny barley-there glitters. This is a majorly intense pink. The glitters are so fine you can barely see them so its more of a matte shade. Its super pigmented, easy to blend and has an ok smooth texture.
Miss Sparkles: Dark grey/black matte with blue glitters. This one is a bit chalky and decently pigmented (its not the darkest black or anything!!). The glitters totally show up and don’t seem to fall out too badly during wear. This shade does look really cool on the lid as a great crease or outer V shade.
Ringleader: Soft, pale, creamy-pink with slight gold shimmer. The swatch doesn’t do it justice but this is a really gorgeous shade and works lovely as an inner corner highlight or all over lid color: great pigmentation, blendability, and smooth buttery texture.
Gangster: Mossy copper toned brown with a metallic finish. Great color pay off, easy to blend and amazing texture.
Instigator: Metallic gold. I love this shade especially wet. Very metallic indeed, easy to blend and really pigmented. Again the texture is silky smooth on this one.
Baddass: Cool toned blue with silver glitter and shimmer. This is a really lovely blue with a silver reflex. Sorry if I’m being redundant but this one is really pigmented and super smooth too.
Jailbird: Metallic silver. Wow this guy is so intense, richly pigmented and buttery soft.
4/5 for this palette. Firstly the packaging is really gorgeous. It’s so unique but still totally functional. The bottom shades were a major stand out. Every single one was pigmented, rich and smooth in texture and easy to blend. Unfortunately the top row lacked a little bit in terms of swatching. Although Charming and Ms. Sparkle swatched a little patchy and felt rougher in texture they actually work really nicely on the lid and are pretty pigmented…had these been a tad better in terms of texture then his palette would have gotten full marks 😀
Here’s a look I did using Ringleader on the inner corner, Instigator on the lid, Totally Fetched in the crease and outer crease, Miss Sparkle on the outer-v, and Dainty on the brow bone…
All in all this palette is Pretty Rebel LOL!!! Honestly, this is a great palette for anyone out there looking to splurge on an awsomely intense and highly metalic palette. The shades work really lovely on the lid and make for some really unique and wow looks 😀
Have any of you tried this palette?? What I’d love to hear your thoughts?
