I can’t resist shimmery eye shadow the same way I cannot resist intricate packaging. With that being said it’s no wonder Too Faced’s Romantic Eye palette ended up in my makeup loving hands.
This beautifully packaged palette contains 9 shadows (5 matte, 4 shimmery) to help create sultry, smoky eyes. Honeymoon, a yellow gold, is my absolute favorite.
There are even mini cards in the package with application techniques, an extra sweet touch.
The verdict? I’m on the fence on this one. Priced at $36, it’s not a must-have by any means and I think you can find similar palettes with better quality for a little bit less. While I love Honeymoon, Ever After, and Soulmates, the quality of the rest of the shadows is just ok. Mattes are a hard texture to conquer and the ones in this palette are streaky and patchy.
If you’re waffling between this palette and Urban Decay’s Naked or Naked 2 palettes, get either of the Naked palettes (and this is coming from someone who owns neither).
