A Look and a Review with Too Faced’s Romantic Eye Palette


I have always been curious about the Too Faced eyeshadows, especially the ones you see neatly put together in the small, compact form, with the eyeshadows expertly coordinated.

I was lucky enough to receive the Romantic Eye palette from the company and was first taken with the beautiful packaging it arrived in. Not only does Too Faced pay very close attention when it comes to the details in their products, they also left no stone unturned in the package quality.

Upon first glance, what I initially like about this palette is its small, compact size. It’s ideal for throwing into the purse, for the day or a business trip, and makes touch-ups throughout the day a breeze.

One thing I believe sets Too Faced apart from their competition is that they include cards with this palette (tucked neatly inside lid) that give you three different eyeshadow combination ideas for this palette. They’re easy to follow, in English on one side and French on the other. I feel this really takes the complexity out of the equation for beginners, instructs those who aren’t quite confident in makeup application, and gives inspiration for more advanced enthusiasts.

I was really impressed with the pigmentation of these eyeshadows, their lasting power and how vibrant they remained from application to the end of the day. I was also most impressed with the eyeshadow ‘Kiss the Bride’; it’s generally hard for light pink shades to show up on my fair skin, but not this one! One swipe and it’s THERE!

    Z, I am so happy to see this (and the youtube tutorial) – you know I’ve been eagerly awaiting your opinion and the look(s) you’d do. I’ve got quite a few TF palettes and they are all great (you’d have loved Enchanted Glamourland but it was LE from 2 Xmases ago). Just to let you know, the terms “Classic”, “Fashion” and “Day” refer to the types of looks given by the groupings of the 3 shadows in each horizontal row. The one you called “Classic” is actually “Kiss the Bride” and “Fashion” is “Bouquet Toss” (such sweet names, especially when you compare them to some of the UD shadow names…Booty Call, Mildew, Roach…)

      LOL I really AM such a dork! That’s what I get for not paying attention! Haha! I’ll go back and change them in the post, as for the video, well, my dorkiness will live on in infamy! LOL! ;)

      I agree about the names – I really question who over in Marketing at UD thought ‘Bootycall’ was appropriate. Yuck.

        Hey, you are hardly a “dork” (a makeup obsessed, eye-shadow loving fanatic, yes, but a “dork” – NEVER). I can hardly ever remember the names of some of the shadows and always have to check back to see what they’re called (and it’s even worse with Inglot – they just have numbers and I never remember if my favourite is 422 or 442 or 424!!!) As for UD’s names (and some from TF too, I have to say), I guess they think they’re clever and “edgy”. I’m just glad they don’t have shades called “Sexual Assault” and “Rape”.

    Very pretty Zabrena. :) The TF shadows look lovely on you ,but to be honest I’m not totally won over by TF eyeshadows. To me it seems like all the makeup companies dupe each other colors. Very rarely do you find an original shade. Then were “duped” into buying too much makeup that looks the same. I guess that for now I’m more into MAC. It’s nice though to look at other brands. How do you compare TF’s Kiss The Bride Vs. MAC’s Girlie? Or if not Girlie,a different pink MAC shade. Kiss The Bride is a pretty shade though. I wonder if you can get it without the palette. Probably not.

    • Mariella says:

      I don’t know that I agree. I bought this palette just for Honeymoon because I looked everywhere for something similar and couldn’t find a dupe anywhere. Because I thought I had dupes of all the other shades (I actually don’t – some of them are quite different from what you’d think), I didn’t want to buy a palette for just one colour but in the end, I did because I couldn’t find anything like Honeymoon. The same applies for some of the colours in the Smokey and Natural at Night palettes – unique colours that I couldn’t find elsewhere.
