Gingerbread Extra Spicy
Too Faced Gingerbread Extra Spicy 18-Pan Eyeshadow Palette is a new, limited edition eyeshadow palette that has 18 shades with a good split between mattes and shimmers. There were a few firmer, denser shimmers–almost like heavier, cream-powders–that could go on nicely with the right technique.
The mattes were more typical with the Too Faced formula, so they were soft and blendable but had some powderiness and sheered out a bit when blended out, so coverage had to be built up. I actually feel like the stiffer shimmers were the downfall of the palette; the mattes were very workable, and for someone who normally uses primer or prefers more buildable application, easy enough to work with.
The palette has a sweet, lightly spiced scent, though I didn’t notice it on my lids, just when I had the palette opened.
Too Faced Vanilla Wafers Eyeshadow
Vanilla Wafers is a light, warmer beige with a matte finish. It had a very soft texture but was moderately powdery, so there was some drop when applied and blended out, which can cause other tones to look faded or ashy, so I’d recommend applying this earlier on in your application (before deeper shades). It had nearly opaque pigmentation but sheered out to more medium coverage in practice. It lasted well for seven hours before fading visibly on me.
Too Faced Cookie Cutter Eyeshadow
Cookie Cutter is a light-medium peach with warmer, more orange undertones and flecks of peach and pink sparkle over a frosted finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that could be built up, though the texture was slightly drier and more prone to looking caked on/chunky when built up. On the lid, I’d recommend using it with a dampened brush to force the product to smooth out more. It wore nicely for seven hours before fading noticeably on my eye.
Too Faced Soft and Sweet Eyeshadow
Soft and Sweet
Soft and Sweet is a medium, pinky-coral with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer pigmentation with a moderately powdery texture. The color didn’t build up that well unless applied over primer, where it built up to semi-opaque pigmentation. There was some fallout during application due to the powdery consistency. It stayed on well seven hours before fading noticeably.
Too Faced For the Graham Eyeshadow
For the Graham
For the Graham is a soft, light brown with warmer undertones and a matte finish. The pigmentation was opaque in one layer, while the eyeshadow felt soft, smooth, and lightly powdery, so it sheered out a touch during blending but was rather minimal. It lasted well for seven and a half hours before showing signs of fading on me.
Too Faced In a Pinch Eyeshadow
In a Pinch
In a Pinch is a bright, medium orange with balanced, warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had opaque pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out nicely along the edges. It had a soft, lightly powdery consistency that sheered out slightly as I blended it out, but it could be built back up with little difficulty. It wore well for seven and a half hours before I noticed fading.
Too Faced Drizzle It Eyeshadow
Drizzle It is a deep, reddish copper with warm undertones and smooth, metallic sheen. It was intensely pigmented with a smooth, cream-like texture that wasn’t too densely-pressed into the pan but had no fallout or powderiness either. The eyeshadow applied beautifully and stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.
Too Faced Lick the Spoon Eyeshadow
Lick the Spoon
Lick the Spoon is a medium,-dark peach with warm, orange undertones and a frosted finish. It had good pigmentation with a slightly drier texture that was a bit dusty and worked better really pressed and patted onto skin to avoid fallout. This shade lasted well for seven and a half hours before showing signs of fading.
Too Faced Spicy Mami Eyeshadow
Spicy Mami is a deeper copper with strong, warm orange undertones and flecks of gold sparkle over a more satiny finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation applied dry and more opaque coverage applied with a dampened brush, though it was harder to blend when used with a dampened brush. It was very firmly pressed into the pan to the point where it felt like a stiff, cream-powder hybrid. I had to really push at and jab the surface of the eyeshadow to get product to release from it so I could pick it up and apply it to my skin. It was harder to apply the product evenly and blend it out as readily, too, though it seemed easier to blend out (at least) over primer. The color wore well for seven and a half hours on me.
Too Faced Extra Spicy Eyeshadow
Extra Spicy is a deep orange with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that adhered evenly and blended out without difficulty on bare skin. The texture was lightly powdery in the pan but didn’t give me fallout during application. It stayed on well for eight hours before I noticed slight fading.
Too Faced Half Baked Eyeshadow
Half Baked is a richer, darker copper with strong, warm undertones and a smooth, metallic sheen. It had excellent pigmentation in one stroke, which applied well to bare skin and blended out with ease. The texture was smooth to the touch, creamy without being too thick or too firmly pressed in the pan. It lasted well for eight hours on me before I noticed any fading.
Too Faced Butterscotch Eyeshadow
Butterscotch is a brighter, light-medium orange with strong, warm yellow undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color coverage with a soft, blendable texture that was lightly powdery in the pan but didn’t sheer out too readily when applied. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading visibly.
Too Faced Cookie Call Eyeshadow
Cookie Call is a deep, reddish-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff that was buildable to full coverage with less than half of a layer, and it made more sense to build it as the texture was lightly powdery so building up minimized the chance of fallout. The eyeshadow applied evenly and blended out well. It stayed on well for seven and a half hours before I noticed slight fading.
Too Faced Plenty of Dough Eyeshadow
Plenty of Dough
Plenty of Dough is a medium peach with warmer, more orange undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was drier, moderately powdery, and prone to sheering out as well as having fallout during application. The pigmentation was semi-opaque at best but often looked more semi-sheer to medium in practice. There was noticeable fading after seven hours of wear.
Candy Queen is a light, golden copper with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation applied dry, and the texture was a bit drier and more loosely-pressed, so I wanted to see if it improved with a dampened brush, which it did but not as much as I expected. The dampened brush helped the product apply more evenly and brought out the metallic finish, but I was able to apply it dry and build it up with minimal fallout. It wore nicely for eight hours with light fallout over time.
Too Faced Gingerbread Glam Eyeshadow
Gingerbread Glam is a medium, reddish-brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had opaque color coverage that applied well to bare skin with a smooth, even lay down of color that blended out well along the edges and only sheered out a touch when I did so. The texture was soft, lightly powdery but didn’t seem prone to fallout. It stayed on well for seven and a half hours before showing signs of fading.
Too Faced Hot Tamale Eyeshadow
Hot Tamale is a muted, medium berry red with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied fairly evenly but took more effort to diffuse and soften, especially along the edge,compared to most of the mattes in the palette. The eyeshadow had a slightly drier, dustier texture, though it only had a touch of fallout during application. It lasted well for seven and a half hours before fading visibly.
Too Faced Cinna-moan Eyeshadow
Cinna-moan is a muted, darker copper with warm, rusty red undertones and a matte finish. The pigmentation was nearly opaque in a single layer, while the texture was soft, a smidgen dusty in the pan, but it blended out well on bare skin with slight sheering out as it did so. I had no trouble building the color back up, though. It wore well for seven and a half hours before fading noticeably.
Midnight Snack is a medium-dark black base with flecks of cooler, blue-teal shimmer and micro-sparkle on top. The texture was incredibly firm and stiff to work with, which gave it a drier, draggier edge that was difficult to diffuse and blend out. If I cheated the edge and used something else to diffuse and blend it out, then it was workable. I had to jam and jab my brush at the surface to get product to come off of the pan’s surface. Once on, it stayed on nicely for seven and a half hours before fading a bit.
