Love purples? Me too. In fact it is a bit unhealthy. I just adore purple everything. This is my first Too Faced single eyeshadow purchase & after much swatching I knew it needed to come home with me. There are some other shades I have my eye on but I’m happy to say this is my first. If you love purple, shimmer, & something a bit different you’ll likely dig Too Faced Exotic Color Intense Eye Shadow in Violet Femme too.
The packaging itself is quite the standard from Too Faced. Ultra fair pink & gold is what I’ve come to expect. The eyeshadow itself looks like an abstract black flower. I definitely appreciate the peek window so I can see the shade. Pretty but simple. If you are used to square/rectangle shadows this might be a bit of a challenge to store. I took it showing my nail so you can see the size reference. This isn’t all that big.
When you first pick up this shade, it doesn’t look all that spectacular. It looks like a pretty violet with slight shimmer. Pretty but not out of this world.
Swipe your finger over the shadow for the first time & you’re off to wonderland. The sheen beneath is absolutely crazy! When it hits the light there is not doubt that the gold shines through. It isn’t crazily pigmented but that is actually what I like about this particular shade.
When applied, I find you get fallout. Both of the swipes above (one is a heavier swatch while the other is sheered out) are applied dry. I’ll be doing an eye look with this shade wet which is when it really shines. This shade in general applies better wet, spongetip, fingertip, or with a firm brush.
I seriously love this color & only wish I had bought it during spring! I think it is going to be really pretty with some of my bronze shades as well though!
Have you tried this color? Any other Too Faced eyeshadow singles I need in my life?
