Channeling Too Faced II

The next palette in the Dollar Tree Too Faced look a likes is this smoky eye palette and as all Dollar Tree items go, this was only $1!
This palette is my favorite of the two as there are a couple gorgeous taupey shades and this runs more cool than the Natural one.
One again, what appears to be silver shimmer is just overspray.
The shades in this palette are gorgeous! The formulation of the eyeshadows in this palette are slightly harder and less powdery but still very pigmented. These swatches were done (as usual) without a base.
The shades actually look better when swatched in my opinion than in the pan. We have a medium toned brown that borders slightly more bronzey with a bit of silver in it, a silvery taupe, a gorgeous dark olive green which looked nearly black in the pan, a dark black grey, a silver and a blackened taupe/brown. Gorgeous shades!

All in all, I'm really impressed by these though I haven't worn them on the eyes yet. Just from swatches them, I think the texture will work well and I don't tend to have a problem with eyeshadow not lasting on my normal to dry lids. I would pick these up if you see them, they are after all only a bucks!


Have you seen these at your local Dollar Tree?

I haven't seen them but after your review, I'll get them. That's one of the things that holds me back from getting Dollar Tree shadows is that they can be chalky and not deliver. These seem to be a cut above the standard DT fare.

You know, these aren't the only TF palette dupes I've seen! I saw another version out there, that actually had that same cardboard packaging TF does, along with that same eye picture! Crazy huh! Thank you for the wonderful swatches!

@Kim: Me too! But the texture looked pretty decent in the pan so I thought I would take one for the team (glad I did)!

@Mimi: I've read of those popping up at some area Ross and Tjmaxx stores. I'm curious if they come from the same manufacturer.

Oh yay you swatched this! I saw them too (but didn't buy), and my first thought was that looks so much like Too Faced.

Does Too Faced know that someone is using their images? That is so strange!

@Jeweled Thumb
I remember reading on MUA that the Too Faced dupes at TJ Maxx and Ross are made by Almar Sales Co., too.

Because I read this and your other post, while at the DS today I saw both and grabbed them haha. You're right! They're actually quite nice, especially after getting the overspray off~
