I have been loving me a lot of Too Faced lately! It's great to branch out and try brands that I don't usually use too many products of. Too Faced is, or I should say, was one of those brands that I always loved but just didn't own much of. As soon as I found out they are coming out with a new eye palette, I knew it had to be mine! I wasn't planning on buying it this soon, but while at Ulta the other day, one swatch of all the colors and I was sold!
Packaging is to die for! I love the floral details, it's so cute, feminine and spring-y! It's the same as all the other Too Faced eye palettes, except Romantic Eye does not have the little drawer that houses a small brush. Honestly, I can't say I am that sad about it. The cardboard packaging is bulky as it is and there is no need to make it bulkier by adding a drawer with a brush that most of us will not use anyway.
We have the same instructional cards in this palette just like the other Faced palettes. There are three of them; Day, Classic and Fashion. I don't really use the cards, but they are a nice touch and if you need some inspiration, well, there you have it! )
Romantic Eye features a mix of nine shimmery and matte shades. Colors have a very buttery soft texure, go on super smooth and all of them have great pigmentation. I haven't experienced fall-out from any colors like I did with "Nude Beach" in Too Faced Natural Eye palette. None of the colors have glittery textures so nothing to worry about! Too Faced eye shadows never disappointed me thus far! I love the names of colors in this palette; as you can tell, the theme is bridal and wedding-like.
How would I describe these shades?
Soulmates - Shimmer - Pale cream
I Do - Matte - Taupe
Un-veil - Matte - Black
Kiss the Bride - Matte - Pale/Baby Pink
Cut the Cake - Shimmer - Lavender
First Dance - Matte - Deep Purple
Bouquet Toss - Matte - Pale Yellow
Honeymoon - Shimmer - Green/Gold
Ever After - Shimmer - Brown/Bronze
I am already in love with Romantic Eye and so glad that I decided to bring it with me on my trip! My most favorite shades are Cut the Cake and Honeymoon because I don't have anything like them in my collection :)
