Too Faced Cat Eyes Palette review

Quirky US makeup brand Too Faced have got a lot of exciting new launches coming out this month (more on those soon) but my absolute favourite of these is the new Cat Eyes eye shadow palette*. 

Formed of 9 complementary eye shadows, the Cat Eyes palette is aimed at creating really easy cats eye style looks with minimal fuss. I'm a massive fan of a feline black liner flick (and leopard print) so this palette is right up my street!

The shadows are broken down into three main looks: day, classic and fashion.  With each look there's one shadow designed to be used wet or dry which can double up as an eye liner. Obviously you don't have to stick to the set combinations they've suggested - they all mix and match really well. I love the names they've given to the shadows - they're all cat inspired, keeping with the overall theme of the palette.

Inside the palette they've included a quick guide to the three looks and how to create them yourself.  I think this is a great idea - it makes it a lot easier to know which shade should go where for the best effect! 

The day time shades are probably my favourites from the palette. I know I'm not exactly being imaginative here but the soft cream and bronze shadows are really lovely and while they might not be ground breaking they're perfect for an every day look.

If you are a bit more adventurous then try out the fashion shadows - these are quite usual for a cats eye style look so I think will be quite fun if you're braver than me when it comes to colour!

The shadows themselves are mostly shimmery and have a lovely soft texture and very pigmented finish.  You don't need a lot in order to get a good depth of colour and they blend together really well.  

I'd recommend using an eyelid primer underneath these as they do seem to fade quite quickly during the day without one, but I have it on good authority from Grace from All That Slap that Too Faced's Shadow Insurance primer will stop any eye shadow from moving! 

The Cat Eyes palette launches in mid-August and costs £32.  Do you like the look of this palette?
