With fall collections in full swing, we’re slowly saying sayonara to the bold brights we’ve been seeing since last spring. While I’ll sincerely miss all those fun pops of color (and I’m not quite ready to give them up until at least mid-September), I do welcome some sassy, sexy shades in my world! One fall offering I could not pass up is the new ‘The Return of Sexy’ eyeshadow palette from Too Faced. The fall collection from Too Faced has seriously ROCKED so far. (Oh, hi La Crème Lip Cream Lipsticks and new Perfect Eyes Eyeliner shades!) Let’s just say, it doesn’t end there.
Without further ado, meet your sultry new best friend—The Return of Sexy. This pretty palette holds 15 generous pans of color-coordinated neutrals, passionate purples, and sexy greys. Also included; a full size Perfect Eyes Eyeliner pencil in Perfect Black (it’s amaze and stays put for me), and a deluxe size tube of Too Faced’s cult-fave eyeshadow primer, Shadow Insurance. When I first read the price for this, I did a double-take, because it had to be incorrect. At $48, it is literally a steal. If it were only the eyeshadows for $48—that would break down to $3.20 a shade. But guess what? You’re also getting a full size eyeliner that retails for $18 on its own. So you don’t need to be a mathematician to see what an insanely KILLER deal this is. (And let’s not forget the three how-to cards and Shadow Insurance.)
If you’re as excited about this as I am now, let’s take a closer look!

3 How-To Cards, Shadow Insurance, Perfect Eyes Eyeliner in Perfect Black
The eyeshadows can all be used wet or dry, and will give a little bit more of a sheer, candle-lit look once you start blending them when dry, but still look pretty stellar. What makes them come alive is when you amp up the color with a mixing medium or water, so the options are pretty much endless when you start combining the wet/dry finishes and shades together.
The one thing I can say however, is this palette *might* not be a good fit for everyone. While there’s a mix of finishes in the palette, you’re going to find that it’s predominately a palette of glimmers, shimmers, and pearls. If you’re a more subdued matte or satin lover, this may not be for you. Very pretty, and fun nonetheless—and this will carry over into the holiday season VERY nicely!
(The perfect brushes to apply these with? I’m using Too Faced’s own Essential 3-Piece Eyeshadow Brush Set, which I highly recommend—and it’s affordable.)

Perfect Eyes Eyeliner in Perfect Black
This is a GORGEOUS collection of shades with glimmering finishes, and quite the value—I might add! 15 eyeshadows, a full size Perfect Eyes Eyeliner in Perfect Black, and a deluxe size Shadow Insurance for $48? Surely you jest—but it’s true! If there was one thing I could change, I’d probably swap out two of the shades in each of the three groupings for mattes or softer finishes. Aside from that, I’m in lurve.
