Too Faced Then & Now 20 Year Anniversary Eyeshadow Palette

No comments :
I have a soft spot in my heart for Too Faced, because they are the first "more expensive" eyeshadows I ever picked up. Technically my Mom got them for me, we went to a department store called Cherry & Webb (they aren't in business anymore) and Too Faced had JUST launched. They were having a promotion where they gave us free t-shirts and everything. I got Trixie and Ice Queen, which were reformulated to be in this here Then & Now 20 Year Anniversary palette. As soon as I saw, I knew I had to pick it up because I have such fond memories of the original packaging/logo, and using the shadows that I had. I actually still have them for sentimental reasons, and I'm going to swatch them for you at the end of this post.
The palette has 20 shadows, 22 if you count the fact that 2 of them are split pans. The top row is the original lineup of shades from 1998, and the bottom are the new ones for 2018.
Twinkie - pale warm gold
Pixie Dust - pale cool gold with gold glitter
Dirt Bag - warm brown with gold glitter
Rizzo - metallic chocolate

Zsa Zsa - purply pink with silver micro glitter
Temper Temper - shimmery berry
Trixie - shimmery light purple
Villain - dark purple with violet sparkle

Ice Queen - metallic pale blue with silver glitter
Ooh and Aah - black with silver sparkles/metallic silver

Glitter Donut - metallic bronzey gold with gold glitter
Lost Boys - green with green and blue microglitters 
NSFW - taupey brown with gold and silver glitter
(I just realized that I didn't photograph Gretchen, the matte camel shade - will add it to the end of this post!)

Reality Star - bright pink with pink sparkles
I Can't Even - matte dark berry
Gigi - matte mauve

Shady Bitch - deep purple with multicolor microglitter
Chill Out - blue-violet with blue sparkles
Ooh La La - matte black/shimmery champagne

And now because I'm a dork and realized while editing this post that I never took pictures of the shade Gretchen, here it is:

Just for fun, here is the old Trixie/new Trixie and old Ice Queen/new Ice Queen. The formula now is much better, but the old shadows ARE 20 years old so I think that is adding to the fact that they're super powdery now - they were never like that when I originally used them lol

I have to say that a lot of the bigger Too Faced palettes tend to be hit or miss for me, quality-wise. This one is AWESOME. The mattes are smooth and blendable, everything is beautifully pigmented. They really put a lot into this one, and it shows. The shade Villain is GORGEOUS but has a lot of fallout - I definitely recommend using a sticky base with that one. But other than that, I've had no issues using the other shades at all so far, and I've been absolutely loving the palette!
