Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes Palette
Today I’m sharing my Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes Palette review with you. It has been a long time since I’ve been enamored with a Too Faced palette. I hated the Sweet Peach palette because of its cloying scent and poor pigmentation. So I wasn’t planning on buying this palette until a few friends convinced me that I absolutely needed it because I love mattes.
Notably, the Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes Palette is vegan, gluten-free, and cruelty free. (*Too Faced removed the information that this palette is vegan from their website, so I don’t believe it is.)

Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes Palette Review
Too Faced claims that the Just Peachy Mattes palette is made up of warm peaches, buttery creams, and rich browns in an ombre layout for easy transitions, which in fact is true. They also claim that the palette is blendable and has intense color payoff, as well as smells like peaches and sweet fig cream. I’m particularly impressed that the scent of this palette is much fainter than the original Sweet Peach and it doesn’t make me gag. Nor does it irritate my sensitive eyes.
I love the Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes palette packaging. It’s simple and compact, barely larger than my hand. The palette has a weight to it, so it feels like it’s solid and safe for travel. It’s small enough to put into most makeup bags. I love that the names of the colors are printed underneath them on the palette. It has a mirror for those of you who love mirrors.
To clarify, this is a good palette, but it’s not a perfect palette. While the colors do blend together easily, it’s easy for them to go muddy if you’re not careful. When using the red shade, which I love, it often wanted to blend into an orangey brown tone, so I had to pat extra red on top.
The Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes palette is a very uncomplicated palette to work with. It’s easy to create cohesive looks with the colors in it. In fact, I personally find the light peaches, caramel, red and smoky brown to be flattering with my skintone and eye color.
I like using Peach Tea or Peaches and Cream as crease or transition shades. Peach Butter or Peach Meringue work as lid colors for me, or to blend out the edges of other colors. I love Peach Sangria or Peach Punch as accent colors. Just Ripe works well for helping to add depth in the crease. Chocolate Dipped works to line the eyes or deepen the other colors.
Surprisingly, I’ve not had a single fail makeup look with this palette. (i.e. a palette where I’ve had to take off my eyeshadow and start over). That said, I do seem to gravitate towards always using Peach Tea and Peach Sangria.
The matte formula works well for me. It’s buildable, which makes it very easy to blend. If it was too pigmented, it might be more difficult to blend. I think this is an excellent eyeshadow formula for beginners to start with.
If you’re looking for an all-mattes eyeshadow palette, the Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes palette should be at the top of the list. It’s great for my hooded eyes. It’s easy to pair it with other, more flashy palettes like the Urban Decay Heavy Metals palette because the mattes easily balance out the metallics. The color scheme works for both conservative office environments as well as for a night out on the town. You can create some pretty smoky looks with these colors.
