Too Faced THE RETURN OF SEXY Palette – Review, Swatches and Tutorial

IMG_9496

THE RETURN OF SEXY palette includes 15 eyeshadows, a full size Perfect Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner in Perfect Black and a Deluxe Shadow Insurance Eye Shadow Primer. The PACKAGING, made of sturdy plastic, is quite compact considering all the products contained inside.
Inside, the DESIGN of the three shadow collections is very similar to the Lancome Color Design Palette. The COLOR COMBINATIONS (bronze, purple and grey) are very pretty and can be mixed and matched to create many different and colorful looks.
The TEXTURE of the shadows is very soft and quite pigmented. During the APPLICATION, the do have the tendency to fall out and I was not extremely impressed by the LASTING POWER without a primer (still above the average but not as good as other Too Faced shadows I tried in the past), so make sure that you apply some of the awesome SHADOW INSURANCE that comes with the palette!
Behind the mirror, you’ll find three CARDS with step-by-step instructions to create several looks!
This palette is “shimmery”, “glittery” and everything BUT matte (the lightest pink in the middle MIGHT be the closest thing to a matte shade), so you’ve been warned! 😉

The PERFECT EYES WATERPROOF EYELINER is one of the best eye pencils out there: the perfect combination between a pencil and a liquid liner! It’s blackest black, very soft and…YES! It’s REALLY waterproof! 😉

THE RETURN OF SEXY contiene 15 ombretti, la matita Perfect Eyes Waterproof ed un campione deluxe del primer occhi, Shadow Insurance.
La palette e’ in plastica e, all’interno, la sistemazione degli ombretti mi ricorda il design delle palettes Color Design di Lancome. Le tre COMBINAZIONI DI COLORI (bronzo, viola e grigio) sono molto carine e possono essere usate da sole (per un look monocromatico) o mischiate tra di loro. La CONSISTENZA degli ombretti e’ soffice e piuttosto pigmentata.
Durante l’APPLICAZIONE, li ho trovati un po’ polverosi e la DURATA (senza primer) e’ leggermente inferiore rispetto ad altri ombretti Too Faced che ho provato in passato (ma sempre superiore alla media). Quindi, non dimenticate di applicare l’ottimo primer che si trova all’interno della confezione! 😉
Dietro lo specchio, ci sono tre SCHEDE estraibili con istruzioni dettagliate per realizzare tanti looks diversi!
Questa palette e’ brillante e super brillante (credo che il rosa chiaro al centro sia l’unico ombretto opaco!). E’ decisamente adatta a chi ama gli ombretti shimmer e glitterati. 😉

La matita PERFECT EYES WATERPROOF EYLINER e’ ottima e molto simile alla Pervesion di Urban Decay: e’ una combinazione di matita e eyeliner liquido, morbidissima, nerissima e resistente all’acqua! 😉
