Too Faced Sweet Peach Glow Palette

too faced sweet peach glow palette
The Too Faced Sweet Peach Glow Palette is an all-in-one cheek palette containing bronzer, blush, and illuminator.

This illuminating, blushing and bronzing palette gives the natural radiance of a glowing peach sunset. Give your skin the appearance of being bathed in the most beautiful peachy golden light.

The packaging is tin with a magnetic closure and the mirror is a decent size. It has the same artificial peach scent as the other products in the line, which I love. The blush contains 5.5g / 0.19 oz and the highlight and bronzer each contain 3.0g / 0.10 oz.

murad2I have spoken often about how frustrated I am with the pregnancy mask that never went away, and how I have been on the hunt for products that will help… the new Murad White Brilliance collection focuses specifically on hyperpigmentation and uneven texture and tone – it’s like this line was made for me. I have super short reviews for each product below, because I have been using them together I can’t speak to what the serum and essence have done individually… I can say that overall since adding these products to my routine 3-4 weeks ago, I think my skin feels smoother, looks brighter, and I haven’t had any negative reactions.

I honestly think I have found my winning combo. I will be putting off reviewing new skincare products (except moisturizers… I love new moisturizers) for a while because I want to give my skin a few months with these and maybe… just maybe… I’ll be able to go foundation free this summer! If I am successful I will be sure to post about it, because it would be a huge win for me.

all three of these products are vegan, gluten-free and tested on people, not animals ♥

I am in love with this cleanser. I have been using it for about a month now with my Clarisonic and it leaves my skin feeling clean but not at all dried out. Usually I have to apply my serums and lotions immediately after cleansing, but I don’t feel rushed to after using this. I love the twist cap packaging and the light floral scent – it smells like something you’d find in a spa. It retails for $43 CAD at Sephora.
