Recently launched Too Faced The limited edition Hot Buttered Rum Eyeshadow Palette (€ 24.99). This palette contains 8 very nice warm colors.
Too Faced has released in the past more mini pallets. But after trying out their Matte Chocolate Chip palette, I was a little bit disappointed with the brand. The formula of this Chocolate Chip palette wasn’t great and in my opinion it didn’t have enough color pigmentation. So it wasn’t strange for me when they received some pretty bad reviews. But Fortunately, they really listened to their customers and are working hard to improve their products. The packaging, for example, looks really nice. So when I saw the hot buttered Rum palette, with those beautiful warm colors, I couldn’t wait to try it out.
The palette is compact and very handy if you want to travel with it. It is so small (the size of a business card) that you can easily put it in your toilet bag. The metal packaging is sturdy, so I think it can take a fall (although of course I haven’t tried it out). The palette contains of a pretty good mirror, which makes applying your makeup even more convenient.
It looks really super sweet, with a cup of hot buttered rum all over the package. On the back is also the names of each eye shadow. I was very curious if it actually smelled like Hot Buttered Rum, and yes! It smells delicious! The scent is not too sweet or powerful.
Although the eye shadows are very beautiful, they are not really unique. I think you can find these colors with any other brand. With the beautiful warm tones you can create a beautiful autumn look. I think these colors are ideal on any skin tone.
The palette has 4 matte colors, 1 with a golden shimmer, a frost and two metallic. They blend really great and the pigmentation is great too! Only the two colors Vanilla Extra and Bottoms Up should have some more pigmentation. Especially on my skin tone they do not come out optimally. A tip: when applying the Spiked color, you are guaranteed to have some fall out. So be alert!
All by all I think the palette is a real asset to my collection. With its beautiful warm colors, which is perfect for this season. You can create a nice natural look, but also a nice brown Smokey Eye for a more intense look. You can buy the Too Faced Hot Buttered Rum eyeshadow palette here.
