Review & Swatches: Too Faced Summer Eyes 2013 Palette

Hey guys and dolls,

I picked up a bunch of new eye shadow palettes while I was in Cali and I thought I’d start reviewing and swatching them for you. Yesterday I posted my review of the Maybelline Eyestudio Quad in Coral Oasis which you can see here. Today it’s the Too Faced Summer Eyes 2013 Palette ($36). I picked mine up at Naimies Beauty in North Hollywood But I’ve also seen it here on Ulta.com  and on ebay.com

TooFaced_SummerEyePaletteThe palette was originally released in 2012 in the traditional Too Faced cardboard boxes. This 2013 edition is housed in a sturdy metal tin. It also comes with idea cards. This palette contains three large shadows which could double as face highlighters and blushes as well as six other shades in a variety of colors and finishes.

TooFaced_SummerEye_1TooFaced_SummerEye_2TooFaced_SummerEye_SwatchesSeashell: A cool and light toned peachy pink with a matte finish.

Peach Fuzz: A cream shade with a peach undertone and tiny gold micro glitter.

Sunbeam: A yellow based cream with satin finish.

TooFaced_SummerEye_Swatches_2Plumeria: A cool toned frosty pink.

Coral Crush: A coral peach shade with gold micro gitter

Mermaid: A shimmery cool toned turquoise blue.

TooFaced_SummerEye_Swatches3Cocoa Beach: A cool toned taupe brown with a shimmer finish.

Chocolate Sun: A warm toned dark brown with gold micro glitter

Toasted Coconut: A cool toned medium brown with a matte finish.

THE VERDICT:

9/10 for this gorgeous summer palette. I love the packaging, super sturdy and travel friendly. There’s a great range of shades to create a soft summer look but easily vamped up for a smokey night time creation. The pigmentation is very lovely. Its not the most pow wow in your face pigmentation but the color payoff is great to create soft summer looks and warm smokey eyes. The fall out is minimal with this palette…just remember the cardinal rule..tap your brush before you apply. The texture of the shadows are amazing, super buttery and soft. Truly easy to blend together and out for a seamless look. The longevity of the shadows with a base last all day long, even on those warm summer days. I love the inclusion of the Shade Mermaid and Coral Rush..as well as the different tones of brown to really create dimension to your look. The only downfall with this palette is the similarity between the shades Peach Fuzz and Sun Beam. Apart from that this is one of my favorite summer palettes at the moment 😀

Have any of you tried this palette? Whats your thoughts?
