Brand new for Summer 2012 is this colorful Summer Eye Summertime Sexy Eyeshadow Palette by Too Faced ($36). This eyeshadow collection is limited edition and contains nine eyeshadow shades – some neutrals and some vivid summer colors.
I love the outside design of this Too Faced palette with the cool blue water, seashells, starfish and pretty flowers. There’s no way you can look at this palette and not think of summer fun at the beach!
The palette lid stays nicely secured shut with a strong magnet and flips open to reveal your shadows. Unfortunately there’s no mirror but they do hide a pocket in the lid that contains instruction cards for three different looks to try.
As with most Too Faced eyeshadows, these have great pigmentation. They are smooth and silky and in no way chalky. Here’s how Too Faced describes each of these awesome summertime sexy colors:
- Sugar Sand – dusty rose shimmer
- Plumeria – vivid pink
- Cocoa Beach – plum brown shimmer
- Peach Fuzz – golden peach shimmer
- Coral Crush – coral pink shimmer
- Chocolate Sun – rich brown shimmer
- Sunbeam – pale gold shimmer
- Mermaid – muted teal
- Toasted Coconut – matte caramel
I think this Summer Eye palette is so much fun! I love that they didn’t go crazy with just nine bright and bold unwearable colors. Having all the neutrals there too makes it so much more versatile. Even once summer is over, you can still get plenty of use out of this palette.
I will say that these eyeshadows are more on the shimmery side. So if you’re not fond of shimmery eyeshadows then this Summer Eye palette may not be for you. Currently this palette is out of stock at TooFaced.com but is still available at Sephora and Ulta. Did you purchase the Too Faced Summer Eye palette yet?
