I was going through a few posts in this series and I’m actually surprised at how many palettes I own!! And I haven’t reviewed them all just yet so look forward to more posts in this series.
This post is going to be focused on the Just Peachy Mattes palette I bought on a whim, for really no reason other than just wanting it. The colours are stunning as you’ll see below. I also compared some of the shades to my Too Faced Sweet Peach palette.
What it is
A long-wearing eyeshadow palette with 12 highly-pigmented, matte hues for endless eye looks. Matte shades of warm peaches, buttery creams, and rich browns. (Sephora.ca)
$55.00 CAD (0.48 oz/ 15 g), this works out to $3.20/g. It’s not too bad per gram compared to my other palettes.
It seems like Too Faced used a plastic gold-coloured packaging. It’s a sturdy package but it’s not like the tin packaging of the chocolate bar palettes. This has a magnetic closure with two cute peach clasps. I love the gradient peach/pink to white cover.
I love the mirror in this, it’s the size of the packaging (3×4 inches) and is high quality and super clear. I use the mirrors in my palettes whenever I put on my makeup so it’s important to me that they are as nice as this one is.
The inside is a matte black so the colours really pop against it.
If you’re a person who hated the Sweet Peach Palette scent, you are going to be in for a treat! This has such a small hint of Peach that it’s barely there and really enjoyable. It’s not even as strong as the chocolate bar palette.
Except for Peach Sangria that has sparkle, all of these shadows are matte (which is made obvious by the name). I love these reds, browns and peaches. They also swatch amazingly and have a great colour payoff on the lids.
If you look at each row individually the four shades going across work together to create one look, which makes it easy if you want to throw together something quick. Although the tones in this palette are similar I do think it’s very versatile.
Colour Comparison to Sweet Peach Palette
Since I have the Sweet Peach Palette (“SP”) I wanted to compare this against the Just Peachy Mattes Palette (“JPM”). Not surprisingly, a couple of shades were VERY similar;
I colour coded each shade I wanted to compare in the photo above. Each is swatched below.
SP White Peach vs. JPM Peach Meringue – White peach is a white with a hint of pink while Peach Meringue is more yellow but the difference is hardly noticeable.
SP Candied Peach vs. JPM Just Peachy and JP Peach Punch – I thought Candied Peach in the Sweet Peach palette was shade in between Just Peachy and Peach Punch. Candied peach is a bit brighter with flecks of glitter but otherwise, I think they are very close.
SP Charmed, I’m sure vs. JPM Peach Tarte – These two colours might as well be the same shade in my opinion.
SP Summer Yum vs. JPM Peach Cobbler – Summer Yum is slightly more orange in tone (it’s my favourite shade in this palette) but other it is similar to Peach Cobbler, they even have the exact same texture and feel.
SP Georgia vs. JPM Peaches & Cream – In the pans I thought these would swatch similarly but on my arm, they are pretty different. Georgia is very pink while Peaches & Cream looks more orange.
I don’t think it’s worth having both palettes. If you can stand the scent, I would recommend the Sweet Peach Palette because there is a wider variety of shades and finishes. However, if the scent of the Sweet Peach Palette is too strong for you but you want similar peach and brown shades then I recommend the Just Peachy Mattes.

Application and Wear
This applies like a dream! I enjoy how my eye makeup looks when I use this palette. It’s easy to blend and build and eyeshadow application easy because it’s so pigmented. None of the shadows are patchy.
This also wears extremely well. The colours don’t fade and I can go a day with it holding up. If I’m going to be going out after work I’ll wear these shades in the morning because I know they will last. I wear concealer on my eyelids which does help, but overall this lasts fairly long.
In the look above I started with Peach Butter all over the eyes. I blended Peach Tea into the crease and darkened the outer half of the crease with Just Ripe. All over the lid, I put Peach Punch and then used Chocolate Dipped as liner along the lash line. In the lower lash line, I used Peach Punch on the inner portion and Just Ripe on the outer portion. I finished the look off with some Lancome Monsieur Big Mascara.
- blends well
- very pigmented
- great packaging
- barely there scent
- similar shades to Sweet Peach Palette
In my collection, I can grab shades from different palettes that I think would work similar to the ones in this palette. Even so, I enjoy the application of these shades very much and prefer this palette when creating a warm-eyed look.
If you have something like this in your collection, like the ABH Modern Renaissance Palette, there isn’t going to be anything new here for you. That being said, if you were on the fence about this particular palette, I think it performs extremely well and would recommend getting it.
Have you tried this palette? What about other more recent launches from Too Faced?
Lots of Love,
