Sephora 500 Point Perk: Too Faced Palette!

I have been saving my points from my Sephora Beauty Insiders card for awhile now waiting for something good to come along. I usually miss it when it is a good item so I am glad I was paying enough attention this time. When I saw that this Too Faced palette was the new 500 point perk, I decided it was time to trade in some of my points. I have not used the Too Faced Shadow Insurance before or any of their eyeshadows, so for me this is a perfect opportunity to try some new products. (Click Here to sign up for Sephora's Beauty Insider program if you are not already a member!)
The Too Faced Eye Love palette is basically a sample palette with 2 eyeshadows and instructions for a look from each of the 4 Too Faced eye palettes. Each of their regular palettes come with 9 eyeshadows and retail for $35. This palette will cost you 500 points from your beauty bank at Sephora. It also comes with a mini Too Faced Shadow Insurance. It does not include an applicator, but that is just fine with me. (I probably wouldn't use it anyway!)
What you'll find inside!
All of the swatches below were applied with my finger to my clean, bare arm. They all have a really nice texture and there is a good mix of finishes. Heaven, Smolder and Like a Virgin are all matte, the rest have shimmer. Based on the swatches, I love Push-Up, Honeymoon and Ever After. (There I go with those neutrals again!) I also really liked Satin Sheets and Like a Virgin. Heaven almost completely disappears on my skin, but I think it would work great as a highlight color. I didn't like Silver Spoon as much as I thought I was going to, I feel like it is just a little too bright metallic silver for my taste. Smolder goes on more sheer than I thought it would. I'm not sure if I will use it much though, I don't use black eyeshadow a whole lot except to line. I have not worn any of them yet, so I can't really review their staying power but I will let you know when I do.

Overall, this is a nice selection of different colors from different palettes by Too Faced. If you have the points in your beauty bank and have been thinking of getting one of the full size palettes, this is probably a good one for you. You can try them this way and see what you like, and you may even find that this is enough and you don't need the full palette. Personally, I really liked the gold shade Honeymoon in the Romantic Eye palette, but I wasn't sure I wanted to spend $35 on the whole thing. With this, I got the shade I really wanted and a bunch more to try out. Win win situation!

If you have never redeemed your points before, it is super easy! If you have enough points in your beauty bank if will ask you during checkout if you would like to redeem them for one of the available rewards. There are 100 and 500 point rewards. This Too Faced palette is still available online for 500 points, and the current 100 point rewards are: Clean Cotton T-shirt Eau de Parfum 0.21oz, Dior Instant Eye Makeup Remover 0.5oz and Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Stick in Brooklyn 0.004oz. They change all the time though! When you decide what you want, you just have to checkmark that product during checkout and it will add it to the cart for you. It will actually give you the points from whatever is in your cart that you are about to purchase too.
