I’ve got a brand spanking new collab with the crazy ass that is Miss Uppington! In all honesty, I’d stay far and wide away from her blog, unless you like utter trash. I’m joking,
I think obviously! Please do make sure you check her out (and her blog) and have a look at her thoughts about this palette!
We both are subscribed to the beauty subscription box – Look Incredible. In this months box, we received the ‘Too Faced Funfetti Eyeshadow Palette‘, which I believe is now disconnected.
Since this was my first ever Too Faced palette, I was literally so excited to have a play around with it! I have only tried out one of their Funfetti blushes before and since I fell head over heels with that, I was expecting good things from this!
The 12 different eyeshadow pans come packaged in a pink, cardboard flip palette with a heart shaped mirror in the inner ‘flap’ (cringe).
Even though it would be easy to whip out and use anywhere due to the mirror, I’m not sure how intact the eyeshadows would be after being in your suitcase for a while.
Also, It’s 2017 and the palette still says ‘It’s Fun To Be A Girl!‘? Wake the fuck up Too Faced.
Before using the palette, I was actually quite pleased with the shade selection. There’s a nice mix of mattes and shimmers, pinks and purples and then some more neutral colours too, and I am in LOVE with all the shade names such as ‘Feelin’ Good’ ‘All Nighter’ and ‘Pop, Fizz, Clink!’.
I never actually swatched this palette before I started to play around with different looks as I wanted my first thoughts and feelings to be all written here for you guys.
I first went in the with shade ‘You’re So Fancy’ in my crease and blended this out. So far, no problems. From now on I honestly couldn’t tell you what shade I used apart from ‘After Party’.
It’s actually a really weird palette to describe. As soon as I start to add in more than 1 shade, the colours sort of merge together, to create just a single shadow shade… Usually, you can tell what shade been put in the crease and then on the lid etc. but with this, you can’t tell what colour is where. It just turns into a sort of muddy colour, even when I tried to use the pinks and purples. The only way I managed to get a clearish difference between the crease and lid colour was to wet my brush and literally pack on half of the contents of the pan onto my lid.
Even though they can all merge together, they are a total BITCH to blend. I swear once I take this off of my lids, my eyes are going to be bright red from how vigorously I had to move my brush to try and not get an obvious line.
Also, I kept wanting to grab for other eyeshadows outside of this palette. Even though I originally thought that this had a good shade range in, I feel like it’s going to be pretty difficult to get a good amount of different looks out of this, and for a palette that had 12 shades, it should be pretty easy. Not with this.

Even though Too Faced palettes are always super hyped up, I think I’m going to give them a miss. I really wanted to get my hands onto the Peach Palette, but if its anything like this, then I don’t think I’ll bother. If I had brought this on its own for £30, I would have been super disappointed and most likely have tried to get a refund.
- Has mirror inside palette

If you’re too lazy to read the whole review but want to know what I thought, here it is: This palette is bloody shiet.
Again, please check out Abby’s review and let me know if you’ve tried out this palette and what you thought of it.
Am I wrong about this palette? Maybe. Will I use this in the future? It’s unlikely.
