Beautified: Too Faced Pumpkin Spice Palette

It’s beginning to look, and feel, like fall. So, it’s only natural everything is suddenly pumpkin-flavored, scented, or colored. And make-up is no different. Too Faced Cosmetics recently came out with two limited-edition products for fall, aptly named Pumpkin Spice Palette and Pumpkin Spice Matte Lipstick.

Too Faced Pumpkin Spice Palette, $49

This palette has 18 warm shades, including:

  • Whipped Cream (warm light beige)
  • Crisp (warm peachy pink)
  • Fall For It (medium peach)
  • Pumpkin Spice (rustic yellow)
  • Ginger Spice (pumpkin orange)
  • Cocoa Drizzle (light chocolate brown)
  • Fall Vibes (green gold)
  • Sweetie Pie (light yellow brown)
  • Falling For You (gray green)
  • Spice, Spice Baby (light red brown)
  • You Spicy (magenta)
  • Warm & Cozy (deep red brown)
  • Oh My Gourd (ballet pink)
  • A La Mode (rosy nude)
  • Wanna Piece Of Me? (silver lilac)
  • Love You A Latte (dusty mauve)
  • PSL & Chill (multi purple)
  • Spice Of Life (deep purple)

Melted Matte Pumpkin Spice Lipstick, $22

It goes on like a gloss, and dries into an ultra-matte opaque finish.

The Review

Both have a very subtle hint of pumpkin spice but are not overly powerful. Out of these two items, I especially loved the palette. It’s mostly mattes, which is a good thing. I think the six metallic shades are (mostly) somewhat dull and take a lot of layering to get that vibrant glittery sheen you’d expect from a metallic shade. That said, there are a few shades that are especially my favorite. I could see using Whipped Cream, Fall for It, Cocoa Drizzle, Warm & Cozy, and Love You a Latte regularly. And, I think Pumpkin Spice, Ginger Spice, Spice, Spice Baby and A La Mode, while not something I would use every day, are still beautiful.

The formula itself can become a little powdery, but does not really have any fall-out. (There’s a very subtle fall-out from some of the metallic shades.) The shades blend beautifully, but some are more pigmented than others.

The liquid lipstick is a very vibrant orange-red. It goes on smooth and lasts. I have no qualms about the product whatsoever, but the shade itself is orange-red, which can be hard to pull off. It definitely leans more heavily on burnt orange, as the name would suggest. That said, it’s not a color I’d wear often or past fall.
