Hot off the makeup presses is the brand new Peaches and Cream collection launch by Too Faced!
There were a lot of items launched in this collection (video first impressions try on coming soon on that!), but the item that excited me the most was, as per usual, an eyeshadow palette.
This palette definitely used the Sweet Peach eyeshadow palette as a springboard, and added a (nearly fully) matte palette to help flesh out the collection. (Peach Sangria is actually satin, not matte.)
The scent on this palette is different from the Sweet Peach range – it is definitely a sweeter scent, very much like cream alongside the peach scent. I personally prefer the Sweet Peach scent more, but that’s all going to be up to someone’s individuals tastes.

I’m not one to dedicate a full blog post to an upcoming product launch by a brand butttt… there’s something really exciting coming from Too Faced!
As many of you know, the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette launch in April 2016 was an enormous hit for the brand. Sure, the Chocolate Bar launches set off their cocoa scented obsession, but until Sweet Peach hit, we’d seen nothing like it for the brand. The palette went out of stock so shockingly fast that the brand was left reeling and trying to figure out what to do. Once they realized what the demand was like for this palette, they went full throttle for a palette relaunch that was targeting holiday 2016. I can’t even imagine what kind of manpower they had to throw at that relaunch to get it in motion. Brands tend to work a year in advance, so I also have to wonder what projects they bumped in order to make Sweet Peach happen again.
So not only did the eyeshadow palette come back, but Too Faced also launched an entire Sweet Peach collection at us that included lip glosses, a face palette and their revamped Papa Don’t Peach blush. It seems like our obsession with Too Faced and peaches was neverending, and so… they went forward with Peaches and Cream.
So what is it and why is it different?
The Too Faced Peaches and Cream collection is the first time the brand is creating a line exclusively for for a retailer (Sephora, although it will be available on TooFaced.com as well). It’s also a PERMANENT range of products, so don’t get your knickers in a knot about not getting your hands on the product on launch day!
Even better? Because this is a line, and not just an individuallaunch, there will actually be seasonal launches for this range of products as well. So if you’ve got a passion for peach, you’ve got launches galore for the foreseeable future! I originally thoughg this was just a seasonal launch for the brand and I was excited. Now that I know it’s a full line, I’m OVER THE FREAKING MOON!

That’s a LOT of products!!! Are you interested in this collection? Think you’ll be picking anything up? For me, I’m just sitting here dumbfounded and in awe. I want EVERYTHING! At the top of the list is definitely that matte eyeshadow palette (shocking, right? lol). Quickly followed by the bronzers, the lipsticks, blushes and foundation.04
Limited edition for summer, the Too Faced Natural Love palette is a humongous 30 pan eyeshadow palette that focuses on neutrals. The fun thing about this palette (well, fun for me, maybe less so for others) is that it incorporates a lot of previously existing shades in Too Faced‘s collection. Since I never really bought most of their neutral palettes outside of the Chocolate Bar range, I was REALLY happy to see a lot of them in one big palette all at once!
Out of all of the shades in here, and considering how enormous my Too Faced collection is at this point, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that I only had three shade duplications: Heaven, Satin Sheets and Makeup & Chill. So if you haven’t purchased some of Too Faced‘s older neutral palettes, this is a very good jumping off point for you instead.
The Too Faced Natural Love palette is a limited edition item and can be purchased at sephora.com for $59 USD. I’m not currently seeing it on the Sephora Canada site, so check in stores if you’re Canadian!
Too Faced Neutral Love Swatches

Too Faced is expanding their Melted Matte range with their Summer 2017 collection and there are some really intriguing shades in the mix!
Too Faced has released six new shades with this launch, although I only have four which I’ll be featuring in this post. The Melted Matte formula is on par with other liquid lipsticks we’ve come to know in recent years: opaque colour (I’d actually say the Too Faced ones seem to have a more consistent colour payoff than other brands though), solid pigmentation, a matte paint like finish and excellent longevity.
The Melted Mattes are beautiful and they are not as dry as some of the formulas I’ve tried over the years (looking at you Colour Pop), however they are also not some of the most comfortable to wear either. I know everyone has a different tolerance for liquid lipsticks, and for me these are definitely okay to wear for extended periods of time. I do get a bit of that “cat’s butthole” lip we always talk about, but I tend to swipe a bit of chapstick on the inner rim of my mouth in order to smooth out that jagged edge. For those of you who are extremely comfortable wearing liquid lipsticks on the daily, I feel confident in saying you would find this formula to be very, very good.
Of the four shades I have, swatched out, Wicked is the only one to show a bit of streakiness (although that wasn’t the case on my lips!). With a single swatch of these Melted Mattes, you can see that you get an immense amount of colour payoff!
Jawbreaker is definitely the one I am the least likely to wear as these kinds of lavender-pink shades feel a bit comical on me! This one definitely sunk a little bit in my lip lines.
How freaking FUN is the name Granny Panties for a lipstick? I love it! This colour is definitely a grey with a mauve tint to it. Really, REALLY like this one.
In studio lighting, Wine Not? comes across as a red-brown, but I feel like in person it leans far more brown. Gorgeous colour, nonetheless!
I’ve saved the absolute best for last… Wicked is astonishingly pretty. This deep emerald shade is… dare I say… ACTUALLY WEARABLE? I was absolutely entranced with this lip colour as soon as I put it on. The pigmentation is second to none and the colour and tone of it are absolute perfection. This is the kind of green that I would feel the most comfortable wearing outside of my house. And if you’re looking for something fun for a green themed look, or even St. Patrick’s Day, this is absolutely a shade you should go for!
The Too Faced Melted Mattes come in a wide variety of shades that are a lot of fun to play with. (You can see my previous review here.) I love how opaque and unique the colours are – it seems like they’ve really tried something new with the colour range and I am hugely appreciative of that. Of the four I tried for the Summer 2017 launch, Wicked is hands down my absolute favourite. I can’t believe how gorgeous that shade is!
