Yay ! they finally restocked and put it on sale! I know it seemed like a super gimmicky , and we’ve probably seen the colors before . But something about this palette seemed really cute . Now online there’s not too many pictures or video reviews of Papaya Pop, and I honestly had no idea how this would look on my skin. So I went into this kind of blind with only a few swatches shown online. Also I tried out a liquid concealer, it was a bit too light . But I topped it off with my normal powder foundation and added some blush to look a bit more normal.
First off lets check out the cute packaging.
So the packaging is really nice with a hard plastic cover with the cute papaya art and the bottom is this nice possibly plastic but feels kind of like metal shell. The magnet closes well, and it feels totally secure enough to put in your bag. The names are on the back and I may have the mixed up but I’ll do my best as I know Umbrella Drinks is the awesome duochrome. The shadows themselves smell really nice , kind of like Papaya candies. This is my third scented palette from Too Faced, but I didn’t find the small overbearing.
And now for Swatches. I took multiple photos but I will only post two of the better ones to show off the shift of Umbrella Drinks.
The shadows themselves are buttery and light, but can be built up. The lightest pink color is a very pastel pink but I was bale to build it up, the other colors were awesome and could just swiped on my arm. I was impressed with the yellow shade as it does look like an actual papaya color. The light shimmer is very sheer but can be built up and used on the inner corners of the eyes or as a brow highlight. I really liked the dark plum color and it was surprisingly easy to work with. And of course my favorite Umbrella Drinks had a slight glittery feel to it but I was able to pat it on my eyes with a pigment brush for a cute look. There was some fallout but I cleaned it up with some tissue before I did my face.
The Pastel Pink is Mai Tai Me Up, its very light but can be built up . I used this matte on my brow for my look.
Island Fling is the Shimmery White peach color is really pretty and works great in the crease but I my try it layered over another color.
Ay Papaya is a coral color , it leans more pink coral on me but I can see it going more orange coral on others.
Umbrella drinks is my favorite shade in the whole palette. I love the shift and how it looks.
Papaya Don’t Preach is a more vibrant pink, its a lot brighter than Mai Tai Me Up. Its actually a good papaya fruit color.
W’sup Beaches is a really nice matte plum, I honestly was surprised how well it worked with the rest of the colors and how is blended out. Perfect for a smokey look.
And Bikini Optional is a nice papaya rind yellow color. wow they really did a good job with the color story.
And Now finally my eyes. I decided to use the whole palette , for this look. Most reviews I do at least 3 but because this is smaller palette I thought this singular look really showed off the colors. I’m sure I could do more and when I do I’ll post them on WordPress. Also I took multiple pics to show off Umbrella Drink’s color shift.
Overall I was really happy with the quality and pigment of the shadows. I think the purple is deep enough to use as a V color, so you can make kind of smoky papaya look. Also I did use a white shadow base over my eyes, but not the swatches. I feel like they were more pigmented over the base , and looked way more vibrant. So totally use a primer or white base if you want the colors to pop. I have swatched the other Tutti Frutti palettes when I was in Ulta last year. And I honestly think this palette is better than both the Pineapple and the Raspberry palettes. I thought the Raspberry one was a bit patchy when I swatched it, and so I passed on it. While the Pineapple one was better , the color story didn’t grab me. I will say I got this on sale with free shipping and I think the sale price is probably the best. I don’t think it’s entirely worth $34 as the pans are small and its travel size. But the quality is good , just not for $34. The sale price of $17 with free shipping is great though. So while the sale is on , it’s definitely worth it if you like the color story and fruit scented makeup.
And for the mini review, The Born This Way , Multi-use Sculpting concealer in Almond was pretty good. But I concealed too much and had to warm up my face with my normal powder and some Milk Blush. It wears well and isn’t greasy. I had two other sample colors but they were too dark and they were out of the other shades. But I assume they probably work well and maybe I can give them to someone who needs them.
Well Thats all for now , I hope to have more reviews and stuff up later this week. Have a good week everyone:)
