Overall, I LOVE this palette! It’s so pretty! However, I wish it didn’t have 2 browns. I wish one of those browns was a teal blue, or a gold. Or hey, that the brown was a matte for contouring like Salted Caramel from the Chocolate Bar Palette. The eyeshadows themselves have great textures and finishes. They’re easy to work with. I think the palette is a great value for the price.

Yay!!!!! Bella Phyrra! Love the swatches and looks. So pretty. Cannot wait to get mine. Wahoooo!
Thank you! so happy to hear it
Ooh. this palette looks very versatile. I only wish it came with a few matte shades. I think it would be great to take with you on a cruise or vacation where you have limited space but wanted some basics to wear.
Agreed, one of those browns needs to be a matte
The eye looks that you created with this palette are stunning! I honestly wasn’t too excited when I first saw this palette, but after seeing how well the eye shadows perform, I really want to get it!
They are really great quality! I love the colors.
This is so, so pretty but would one matte have killed them?
I really feel like it would have been slightly more rounded with a matte brown instead of the two shimmery browns
Such pretty looks and sounds like a much needed palette. Great ideas and post!
So glad you like them
I would have liked to seen at least 2-3 mattes especially for a summer palette. Your review is extensive, much appreciated it
You’re very welcome!
Very pretty colors, and I love the looks you created. Definitely a Summer-inspired palette
So happy to hear it!
Every shade in this is so pretty, and they work really well together.
They really do!
GRR. I would def use ALL the colors in this. I think you made me want to buy this!
I could see you wearing these colors for sure
FABULOUS looks and swatches! I have this here and I finally photographed it but I need to play!
Yes, play with it, the shadows are great!
Your looks are spot on!!! Amazing job!
Thank you so much!
I have been really wanting this palette but haven’t sprung for it yet. I am with you though – I wish there was a teal in there… gorgeous eye looks Phyrra
You and me, we love the teal <3 Thank you!
Mine has been ordered. Thank you Ulta, your coupon destroyed the remaining self control I was hanging on to. LOL
Yay for a coupon!
I was just in Ulta a couple days ago and almost picked this up!
Monaco is beautiful!
I almost picked this up today but I don’t think I would use the bright pink and blue
Such a gorgeous palette with so many possibilities
That fashion look is interesting! I still like your Jardin/Monaco look the best of these.
I love this palette! My friend works as the Too Faced Rep at my ULTA and she did my makeup with it the other day when I went to visit her. Gorgeous colors and I love the looks you did!
I just bought this yesterday and it’s gorgeous! Perfect colors for Spring.
I almost bought this but didn’t because I won’t use some of the colors. You made some great looks with them though.
I love Too Faced and this palette is gorgeous. It looks great on you!
Love Monaco! Gorgeous looks you did with this palette
This is the first palette I’ve gotten really excited about in a while & you certainly did it justice with your looks!! Thank-you for the visuals. I like how your doing them in steps.
I agree you definitely did it justice as I am more excited to pick this up. And I am thrilled to have the help of five excellent tutorials since I am not very adept at creating looks with these lovely palettes!
I want this!
i love classic and pinked on you! jardin is gorgeous but sadly those shades don’t show up that well on my eyes
Your swatches and looks make me so excited to receive my order! I’m so glad I ordered this now. Especially love the Pinked and Fashion looks you did.
That palette is super pretty.
Hmm nice! The colors are pretty but I’m mostly a fan of the bottom row. De La Mer is amazing, I think I’ve seen a very similar shade though from an indie company on Etsy but the name of the company is not coming to me.
I love the eye looks you created with this palette! I was considering getting this palette but after seeing your post I had to have it right away. I got it at Ulta today and oh my it is so super pretty! The colors are gorgeous. I absolutely adore the charming tin packaging and hope Too Faced keeps making their beautiful palettes in them. Thanks so much for the amazing in depth review, swatches, and wonderful eye looks!
LOVE these colours! The Cannes and Monaco shades are so unique. I don’t have anything like this in my kit, so I might just have to make a trip to Sephora to pick this up!
I saw this palette recently in my local Ulta and I have to stop myself from getting it, but I love it sooo much! I agree with you about the brown and that teal would have been a nice addition. My hubby was with me, so maybe he’ll get it for me
