we are all two faced.

My favourite eyeshadow palette of the moment? Too Faced: The Return of Sexy Palette.

I was given this set for Christmas, and have been using it constantly since then. This eyeshadow palette comes with three eyeshadow sets (15 eyeshadow shades in total), step-by-step instructions to create the perfect smokey eye, as well as Too Faced Shadow Insurance Eyelid Primer and a Too Faced eyeliner.



I am seriously obsessed with this makeup palette. Why? Here are my thoughts on Too Faced: The Return of Sexy Palette.

Too Faced Shadow Insurance:

I didn't think anything would beat the Urban Decay eyeshadow primer. To my surprise, I love the Too Faced eyeshadow primer even more! This has quickly become my favourite. Using a small amount of the product keeps my makeup lasting - without budging - for the entire day. The texture of the product is silky and smooth. The perfect eyeshadow primer!

Too Faced Perfect Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner:

If you are looking for a jet black eyeliner that is going to stay put, then you will love the Too Faced eyeliner. I was so impressed by just how black the colour was. I also really loved how rich and creamy the texture of the product was. This liner doesn't budge at all once it's on, so be careful when applying it! There is also a smudger at the opposite end of the liner, which was super handy for creating that smokey eye look. The only drawback to this eyeliner is that you have to sharpen it. I really prefer liners that twist up instead. Overall though, this is a fantastic eyeliner to create a smokey makeup look.

Too Faced Eyeshadows:

As you can see from the swatches above, this palette is all about shimmer! If you're not a fan of shimmer, give this a miss. If you love shimmer and smokey eyes, then this is the perfect eyeshadow palette. I love that the shadows are separated into sections - gold shades, purple shades, and warm greys. Each set is defined as either: The Ingénue, The Icon, and The Bombshell.

Each of the shadows is quite pigmented, shimmery and really pretty. I am a big fan of the champagne coloured shadow in The Bombshell set, as well as all of the golden shades in The Ingénue set. 

There is fallout with these shadows if you don't use a primer, so definitely make the most of the Shadow Insurance primer that comes with it.

Overall, I am a big fan of this set. The eyeshadow colours look so beautiful, and the eyeliner and eyeshadow primer are fantastic. This palette really is the return of sexy! 

Have you tried the Too Faced: The Return of Sexy Palette? What did you think of it?
