Too Faced Life's A Festival Palette with 5 Looks!

Between the duochromes, packaging and the fact this palette is scented, Too Faced got me again with their recent Life's A Festival Palette. I actually scored this off HSN with a 15% coupon and their flex pay which helped out tremendously. Read on for my thoughts and looks!

It's actually been a while since I played around with brighter, more fun colored eye shadows. Understandably, they're not for everyone or every day, but man are they pretty!

This palette has a light, citrusy scent to it. I'm not sure why, but I kind of love when palettes are scented yummy. It's an added touch I've grown to enjoy and appreciate.

The component itself is so pretty. Bulky? A bit. But pretty, nonetheless. I've been leaving this out on on my dresser to double as a decoration. Between the colors, the rainbow, unicorn and holographic it just makes me feel happy to look at it.

The formulas themselves are a mix of great and okay. While all the colors are undeniably pretty, and the shifts in some of the duochromes are INSANELY BEAUTIFUL (side note: I'm a sucker for a good duo chrome), certain colors were not quite as pigmented and I did have difficulty packing them onto my lids to get as much color as I'd want. "Mystic Rain", which is a beautiful lilac/lavender with blue shift was particularly troublesome for me and I was disappointed because the color is amazing. "Artist Pass" worked nicely in the crease and lower lash line, but I also had trouble with getting think one to show up evenly on the lid as well.That being said, I found all of the colors that I did play with to blend together pretty well. I encourage you to go to your local Sephora or Ulta and swatch these beauties yourself because my pictures do not do the shifts the justice you can see in person.

I've bee enjoying playing with this palette and stepping out of my comfort zone a lot. Please keep in mind I am not, nor do I claim to be a professional makeup artist by any stretch of the imagination, especially with super unique shadow looks.

All the looks below I applied the eye shadows over an eyeshadow primer. The black liner on top of my mobile lid is the SuperHero powder liner/shadow from It Cosmetics.

  1. i really like the looks you came up with. i have this palette too and i think most of the colors are so pretty. and the packaging totally appeals to me since i'm really a 7 year old girl pretending to be an adult, and i love unicorns, rainbows, stars, and gold glitter. i do find that some of the lighter shades take some effort to build up and work better with a damp brush, like euphoric, the lovely pale golden orange shimmer, which is one of my favorites. i've only used it a few times so far, and i was super happy with the look i came up with yesterday using young & free in the crease, sunset dream, euphoric, and fireflies on the lid, funtasy in the outer v and blended over a sparkly purple eyeliner on the lower lashline, fireflies on the inner third of the lower lashline and beamin' in the inner corner. i think i may have also blended the crease with a bit of mystic rain too. but i was disappointed to find that funtasy faded away almost completely in the outer v after a few hours and fireflies faded on the lower lashline to a lesser extent. i had to touch them up quite a bit. i realized later that i had tested an older lorac eye primer that i never use to see if it's worth keeping, so maybe that was the reason those colors faded. but i was wondering if you've had any issues with any of the shadows fading after a while? i'm going to try to recreate the look using urban decay or too faced primer, which work well for me, and see if that makes a difference. i hope so! btw i found your blog through the beauty nerds facebook group. :) i'm tracey leigh on fb and pretty new to that group.

  2. this is tracey again. funny, i just realized that i have been to your blog before when i was looking for reviews about pacifica's pineapple curl conditioners. i didn't find many, but yours was one of the ones that convinced me to try those products. they are quite nice!
