Too Faced Boudoir Eyes Palette & Looks

How often do I spend money on high-end makeup? Not very.

I decided to treat myself, though, by stopping into Ulta and buying the Too Faced Boudoir Eyes Soft & Sexy Palette after reading reviews and watching YouTube tutorials.

A helpful fold-out card accompanies this palette; you can refer to each tutorial to achieve a suggested look for each style.

 Ooh-la-la! ;)

My boyfriend laughed out loud when he read the names, and I can't help but giggle every time I see them, too.

The colors are gorgeous. I love the romantic, come-hither appeal of the packaging (which is a durable tin), and the color scheme will flatter every eye color and shape.

Here are a few ways in which I have worn this palette:

I'm sure cheaper palettes are out there with just as pleasing results, but I am happy that I chose to give this palette a try. I can wear the shades to work and out at night, and black eyeliner only emphasizes the "seductive" factor.

My only complaint is that fallout occurs even with a primer. I used the e.l.f. eyelid primer in all of these "look" pictures, and some shimmer fell below my eyes--nothing that makes me look like I had a rough day or night, but my boyfriend asked me a few times, "Hey, is that glitter under your eyes?" :/

Also, if you are the kind of person who loves receiving sponges or brushes with a palette, you're out of luck. I like to use my EcoTools or my Mary Kay brushes regardless of what accompanies a palette, but I know freebies are always appreciated, especially for those who travel or keep makeup in a purse.

Should You Try It? If you have been curious about this palette and don't mind splurging a little, I recommend purchasing it and playing around with the colors. Soft, smokey eyes are always stylish, and you might giggle every time you read the names, too. :P

What: Too Faced Boudoir Eyes Soft & Sexy Palette

Pros: Beautiful, long-lasting eye shadows that provide several looks for day or night

I'll post a day and night tutorial soon so you can have some ideas how you can wear these lovely shades!

Pretty Panda's Pondering

  • I had such relaxing Memorial Day weekend. I swam every day, and I joined Brett and some friends for dinner Saturday night. 
  • I finally played my new copy of Hello Kitty Seasons today for a few minutes before I cooked some tilapia and yellow rice. Total estrogen attack!
  • Brett and I celebrate 6 years of dating tomorrow! 


  1. I think I will invest in this palette! I love the colors and I have been meaning to get a new look and also get rid of old makeup. I love your blog posts and your instagram pictures of the products you try! :)

  2. Purchased it this morning!! (along with $25 worth of other things to get free shipping from ulta) Can't wait for it to come in!

  3. Thank you so much, Jennifer! That means so much to me. :) Let me know how you like it!
