Before I get into the review, I want to just catch you guys up a little as its been a while since my last post. I want to apologise for the delay in posting, i’ve been super busy and only got back from holiday on Friday! Secondly, I want to tell you guys some really exciting news! I’ve teamed up with a brand new company who specialise in cruelty free glitters, lashes, and makeup tools. They’re called ada cosmetics and are based on etsy- you can shop here.

So, lets jump into this review!
When I saw that Too Faced were working on a brand new launch I was instantly excited. When I saw that it was a peaches and cream collection, I was even more excited as my sweet peach items are to die for. The only thing I was a little disappointed about, was that the collection is only exclusive to Sephora, which for us UK girls and guys, is a bit of a bummer. However, I hastily went over to the Sephora website on the day of the launch and tested the water. To my surprise, a little message from Sephora popped up saying shipping to the UK was now available and capped at just £6 for any orders over £75. I instantly started shopping.
The collection itself contains a wide variety of products that are all very reasonably priced, and seem to be targeted towards oiler skin types such as myself. To start myself off, I opted to go for the ‘Just Peachy Velvet Matte’ Eyeshadow palette (£37.10), the Peach Mist Mattifying setting spray (£26.38), and the Peach Perfect Mattifying setting powder (£26.38). I will warn you now, customs was a b****. My £6 shipping very quickly turned into £26 shipping, but I went ahead and ordered anyway.
I was expecting a very long wait for this parcel as it was coming from the states, however it was with me in just over a week. The package itself was very well wrapped to avoid any breakages. The products themselves came in beautiful boxing as shown in the header image, and the packaging inside was to die for.
Just Peachy Velvet Matte Eyeshadow Palette
This eyeshadow palette is amazing. Firstly, the packaging is gorgeous and feels nice and expensive. The shadows smell incredible, i’d go as far to say this smells better than the sweet peach collection! You get a nice selection of colours that allow you to create a variety of different looks, from day time glam to full glam! All shades, including the light shades are extremely pigmented and buttery. They all blend like a dream on the eyes, but I would say you need to tap the excess off your brush and build the colours up where they are so pigmented. This palette is quickly becoming one of my favourites, I haven’t put it down since I got it!
Peach Mist Mattifying Setting Spray
The first thing I noticed about this setting spray was that it contains 120ml which is more than most setting sprays- for example MAC Fix Plus is 100ml. This was a bonus for me as I drench my face in setting spray- no shame. This spray, again, smells incredible which makes drenching my face even more pleasurable. The mist on this spray is extremely fine, almost to the point where it doesnt feel like you’ve managed to spray your face. This isn’t a problem for me, as I prefer the finer mists as they don’t leave any white/wet patches on my face. This spray claims to be mattifying and its not lying. As someone with oily skin, finding a ‘mattifying’ setting spray that actually works and keeps my skin looking matte throughout the day is a struggle, but this does exactly that! This product gets a 10/10 from me.
Peach Perfect Mattifying Setting Powder
Im not usually a fan of loose powders as I find them incredibly messy and I’m not into baking, but when I saw this in the collection, I picked it up anyway in hope it would change my mind. This powder has done exactly that. You get a nice generous amount (35g), which is good as you always use more loose powder than you would a pressed powder. It also has a solution to help avoid messy travelling and storage situations! It has a very cute peach embossed little plastic cap which clips down when the powder is not in use to prevent any powder entering the lid and going everywhere when you open it! This is handy for me as it means I can carry this around in my handbag without the usual mess. Again this powder smells incredible, which is expected given how good the other two products smelt. It claims to be mattifying and again it isn’t lying. Combined with the setting spray, this powder keeps my oil at bay all day which is a god send! The powder comes in one colour which is ‘translucent peach’. Honestly I’m not sure how peach can be translucent but I gave it a go anyway. The powder does look a peachy colour in the pan, which gives the impression that it may alter the colour of the foundation or concealer underneath, but its true to its name and is translucent!
I would definitely recommend these products to anyone who is thinking about buying them or to anyone who has oily skin. I absolutely love all 3 of these and will definitely be purchasing more from the collection in the near future! Let me know if any of you guys have purchased anything from the collection and how you’re getting on with them!
