Eyes in the Mood for Something ROMANTIC?

Too Faced Romantic Eye Kit is something I have been in love with ever since the day I bought it a little over a year ago. It was one of my first Too Faced purchases, and it really made me love the brand. I don’t know what it is about the Too Faced shadows, but the color payoff and the creamy texture of them makes me fall in love.

This palette specifically comes with shades of purples and pinks that any girl can adore during the spring season. As most of you may know, all of Too Faced eye kits are set up in three sections: Day, Fashion and Classic. Although you can mix and match the colors to your own personal preference, I never draw outside the lines with my creativity and usually just stick with the looks they provide.
Top Row/Day: Soulmates, I Do, Un-Veil
Middle Row/Classic: Kiss the Bride, Cut the Cake, First Dance
Bottom Row/Fashion: Bouquet Toss, Honeymoon, Ever After

The Day look includes Soulmates, a cream colored highlight and all-over-the-lid color that's packed with shimmer. It's absolutely gorgeous. What I didn’t realize is that this color has a slight duo-chrome of pink! LOVE.  I Do is a matte taupe/gray color that I love to put in my crease, but it’s not the greatest in pigmentation due to my skin tone. The last color is called Un-veil, which is a darker gray/brown matte color that I love to put in my outer “v-corner” of my eye.

The Classic look consists of the pinks and purples. Kiss the Bride is a soft baby pink matte. Cut the Cake is a frosty lavender color that looks gorgeous in the crease. Lastly is First Dance, which is a deep and dark purple that I put in my outer corner. This color doesn’t have the same creamy texture as the rest of them, but nonetheless its extremely pigmented.

The Fashion look is my favorite section hands down. Bouquet Toss is a true cream matte color that goes on your lids like butter! Honeymoon is an olive color that is full of shimmer. I love putting on my lids for a dramatic look. Last but not least is Ever After, which is a shimmery dark cocoa brown that I enjoy putting in my crease for added depth.

This palette is the epitome of love, hence all the names of the shadows. Every time I wear them, I think my eyes will draw the man of my dreams in! (I know, wishful thinking!) Whether you’re a single girl like me or deeply in love, this palette is gorgeous. It’s looks good on the simple college girl or a future bride-to-be.

Do you have any Too Faced eye kits?
