Too Faced Cat Eyes Palette

Wearing the new Too Faced Cat Eyes Palette (ring by Betsey Johnson, Sunglasses by Tory Burch, earrings and dress by Kate Spade)

Ragdoll, Siamese, American shorthair, tortie — whether you’re a sassy alley cat or a purebred princess, there’s something in Too Faced’s new Cat Eyes Palette for you.

Upon this new fall palette, Too Faced bestowed nine new shades, each with a kitty-themed name (aww!). Inside the leopard-print packaging hide six powder eyeshadows and three powder eyeliners, which you can use wet or dry (you can also use the eyeliners as eyeshadows), to create a variety of cat eye looks.

There’s more than enough here to take you from pampered house kitty to prowling jungle cat — phht! phht! — in a few swipes of your paw.

Meow!

The palette contains some warm and cool shades, with a mix of neutrals (beige, bronze, brown and black), and a catnip sprinkling of purple, pink and metallic blue gray.

Your cat nephew Tabs, also known as my boss, insisted that I wear the palette for a couple days before divulging my thoughts. I asked him this morning what he thought of the wearable daytime cat eye I did with the brown, bronze and black shades (Leopard, Tiger’s Eye and Panther), and he replied, “Mrrow. Meeee-ooow!”

Sadly, I am not fluent in cat, but I ran the phrase through Google Translate and got: “You look less to’-up than usual. I approve.” :)

I like the variety colors in this palette, and in my eyeshadow experiments with it I’ve found that it really lights up my lids. Most of the shades have a metallic, frost or glitter finish, which makes for beautifully glowing eyes.

I’m also wearing MAC Cantaloupe Blush and Too Faced 16-Hour Bronzer on my cheeks, and Too Faced Perfect Lips Lip Pencil in Spice and Too Faced La Creme Balm in Pink Slip on my lips

The shimmer can start to look a little heavy, though, and call out my fine lines, especially when I do a lot of layering with these products.

Using cream shadow bases like the MAC Paint Pots with them also makes the shadows seem like they’re sitting on top of the skin. I think a really basic primer, one that isn’t too thick (my favorite is NARS Smudge-Proof Eyeshadow Base), works best.

Also, for me, I tend to get the best results when I swirl a brush loaded with shadow on the back of my hand (it removes excess product and really works the grains into the fibers of the brush for an even application on the skin), then buff the brush head on my lids. When I do this, the shadow appear to merge with my skin, as opposed to just sitting on top of it.

As for the powder eyeliners, they work fine wet or dry, but I prefer to use them dry for really lovely diffused edges.

Here kitty, kitty…

I like the whole concept of this palette (hello, cat lady who loves wearing cat eyes?) and think it’s a lot of fun.

If you’re thinking about Cat Eyes for yourself, and if you also happen to be around my age or older, be sure to buff those shadows on your lids, and/or consider working in some matte crease colors. It’ll make the shiny finishes easier to pull off.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    I definitely expected more jungle colors for a cat-eye palette (a really great khaki for example), but the shades play more nicely on your warm skin than I expected.
