After making it through my trip to the dentist yesterday without shedding a tear, I decided to reward myself with a quick trip to Sephora. It was all I could do to erase the memory of those silver hooks coming at me in that awful chair (have I ever mentioned that I think my childhood dentist was a sadist?)!
As I was tooling around the store, I bumped into the new Too Faced Romantic Eye Classic Beauty Shadow Collection kit.
For 35 smackaroos ($35), you get nine cool-toned powder shadows in a range of shimmer and matte finishes, divided into three rows of suggested “looks” — Day, Classic and Fashion.
Swatches of the Day look colors from the left: Soulmates, I Do and Un-Veil; for reference, I’m an NC35
Swatches of the Classic look colors from the left: Kiss the Bride, Cut the Cake and First Dance
Swatches of the Fashion look colors from the left: Bouquet Toss, Honeymoon and Ever After

These shadows are a tactile experience, for sure (but one vastly more pleasurable than a trip to the dentist). They feel like eye kisses, or soft velvet on the skin, and while I like how shiny the shimmer and pearl shadows are, I don’t expect to be able to wear the pale mattes. Judging from the swatches, they look a little chalky on my skin; I’m guessing they’ll look far better on lighter lovelies.
AVAILABILITY: Available now at Sephora and Ulta stores, and also online
