Too Faced Cat Eyes Eye Shadow & Liner Palette: Review and Swatches
Cat Eyes are truly one of the most classic, timeless eye makeup looks and to help make the process of creating cat eyes a cinch, Too Faced came up with a nine-shadow Cat Eyes Palette ($45 CAD) that helps create three different cat eye looks. I gave the palette a try so here are some swatches and my review........
Packaging:
Neatly packaged in a cute metal tin printed with a leopard design, the Cat Eyes Palette holds nine shadows, three of which can be used wet as liners. The tin has a magnetic closure, a small mirror on the underside of the lid and the palette comes with a instruction pamphlet that shows how to create the three different cat eyes.

Formulation:
The palette is divided into three trios, and each is intended for a different cat eye look: day, classic, and fashion. Most of the shadows are quite pigmented with the exception of a few which will be elaborated upon below. I found the three large base colors a bit too similar, making me wish they included a few more color variations.

Base Colors:
Purr: Subtle pale champagne nude
Meow: Matte soft nude
Kitten: Soft whitish cool tone pink satin

Accent Colors:
Tiger's Eye: Metallic dark copper, very pigmented
Pussy Cat: Satin soft violet, the pigmentation is a bit lacking
Kitty Glitter: Pale blue silver shimmer, very sheer

Liner Colors:
These are the shades that are intended to be used wet as liners.
Leopard: Chocolate brown satin with golden sparkles, this shade is a bit patchy but it works nicely wet as a liner
Jungle Love: Dark purple satin with pink sparkles, this color is also a bit dry and patchy
Panther: Matte black, this shade is difficult to work with, even when wet

I followed all the tutorials and created the three different looks. My favorite is definitely the day look as it looked the most natural. The other two are much better for night time and special occasions.

Overall:
This is an adorable palette with some easy-to-wear neutrals. The formulation is a bit of a mixed bag with the liner colors being a somwhat dry and patchy, even when used wet. All in all though, the value and the design of the palette make it worthwhile.

Availability:
Too Faced is available in stores and online at Sephora.
