Youtube Review (w/ some other products)
Hello wonderful Makeup Geeks! It’s almost my favorite time of the year…FALL and I can’t wait!! I love doing fall inspired makeup looks with the stunning and vivid fall shades that become available during this time of the year. For the transition from summer into fall, I love doing a warmer toned eye and adding pops of summer shades. To make the shift and combine these two amazing seasons with today’s palette is perfect for just that. I also wanted to let all of you know that being southern through and through, some of that may creep over into my reviews so enjoy!
Too Faced recently launched their new “Pretty Rebel” palette. I have to admit, I am a sucker for packaging! I always have to remind myself to get past the bells and whistles of the package on to the actual product itself. So to be perfectly honest, at first I wasn’t planning on getting this palette. It looked fun, but I own some of the other Too Faced Palettes and I was somewhat disappointed in them. My expectations weren’t high on this palette, but while visiting my local Ulta, I decided to check it out. Can I tell you how much I love this?!?!?! I do have a few things I would like to see changed, but overall this is by far my FAVORITE Too Faced palette.
So have a seat and let’s get started on this rebellious review!
Like I said before, I am a complete packaging sucker. It draws me in, and I have to remember to look past the packaging and look more closely at the product. This palette has a magnetic bar so it stays closed without having a latch. The construction is sturdy, although I wouldn’t recommend this for travel. This palette comes with a mirror on the inside, but this is where I have a problem with the packaging. If they are going to include a mirror for the palette please include hinges so it can stay open while trying to use it!
The “Pretty Rebel” palette contains 10 vibrant eye shadow shades. There are a few that don’t swatch too well, but perform much better when applying them. None of the shades are hard to blend, the textures are rich, buttery and very creamy. What I really loved, (besides the dreamy texture) was the insane pigmentation on these. Too Faced has lacked somewhat in this department, but this palette certainly makes up for it! I used these shadows over an eye shadow base and on a bare lid. I found no difference in the way they preformed each way lasting well over 8 hours.
The top row Left to Right:
Dainty – Pale pink with a matte finish. Perfect as a highlight or to brighten the inner corner of the eye. This is also great for toning down any of the brighter shades, or for making a shimmery shade less shimmery.
Charming – Matte brown with a burgundy finish. This shade was one of the most disappointing for me. It was chalkier than the others and it didn’t apply as well. I wish this had been more brown, as the burgundy tone doesn’t match everything in the palettes as well as a regular brown shade would have.
Girly – Green/Brown duo-chrome and one of my FAVORITE eye shadows of this bunch. It’s rich, buttery and oh so smooth. Applies like a dream and is a true duo-chrome shade.
Totally Fetch – Bright cool-toned fuchsia with a pearl finish. This is a true vibrant fuchsia with a luxurious feel and texture. It applies easily and looks amazing!
Miss Sparkles – Deep Black with silver glitter. This was not my favorite color. If I’m going to use black I prefer it to be matte. I wish they would have went in that direction instead of adding the sparkles. The texture is very soft which allows it to blend well, however it feels somewhat chalky. The pigmentation is o.k , but it does layer and build up well.
Bottom Row L to R
Ringleader – Pearl finished light peach. Stunning color with a creamy texture and great color payoff.
Gangsta – Warm bronzy – brown with a frosted finish. The texture on this is just like the others, creamy and smooth. The color payoff is amazing as well. I wish this would have been more of a transition shade, but it’s slightly too dark for that. Never the less, it’s an amazing shade.
Instigator – True metallic gold. This shade is fighting with “Girly” as my favorite in this palette! The color is absolutely stunning. It has a molten metallic look to it and the texture is perfection.
Badass – Medium dark blue with small flecks of silver. The texture was creamy and it didn’t blend as well as the others, although it still wasn’t bad. The color payoff was also not as good as the rest of the shades but it can be built up.
Jail Bird – Metallic silver. If you are looking for a intensely pigmented silver then here it is! The pigmentation is crazy good and the texture is creamy and buttery smooth.
I love the concept behind this, the top row is your “pretty” and the bottom row is your “rebel”.
Overall this palette is amazing. It retails for $46.00 for 0.50 ounces. Each eye shadow is 0.05 ounces. I wish they would have made the shadows “Miss Sparkles” and “Badass” true matte shades instead of adding the glitter to them, because of that they are my least favorite eye shadows in this palette. So is this palette worth the money??….ABSOLUTELY! You are paying $4.60 for each eye shadow, which is almost unheard of. This palette also comes with ‘how-to” card including three different looks and how to do them. The quality of this palette and price completely make it worth it. The only downside is that this is a limited edition palette so you will have to pick it up quickly!
I hope that you are happy and blessed. See you soon!!!!
