Too Faced The Return Of Sexy Palette

Sexiness overload! And the shimmers in this palette is not for the faint of heart.

The first real eye palette i bought!
This palette is basically a very convertible palette that will help you get through the day by providing you with a day-time look and enhancing it later to become a night-time look, with a step-by-step illustration guide. It also comes with a deluxe~sized primer (which i accidentally threw with it's box. I really don't want to remember that anymore), and a full-sized Perfect Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner. I will review the liner separately since it's too awesome to just be a small part of this post. 

Celebrate the return of bold beauty with fifteen must-have shades inspired by our favorite timeless beauty looks from past to present: The Ingénue, The Icon and The Bombshell. From sexy neutrals to passionate purples and gorgeous grays, this palette provides timeless eye looks for both day and night. The Return of Sexy comes with a full size Perfect Eyes Eyeliner in Perfect Black and a deluxe size Shadow Insurance Eye Shadow Primer.

Here's the illustrational cards neatly tucked in the back of the palette's mirror. So cool!
You can do 3 day to night looks if you follow the cards, You can either be: The Ingénue, The Icon or The Bombshell. Whichever your mood leads you!
And of course you can mix and match to make more looks and practice the creative goddess in you.
Each themed look has 5 eyeshadows as base, lid, crease and liner. Including the primer and the waterproof eyeliner this palette comes with, you can definitely achieve a 'fabulous' complete eye makeup!
Before we go to the swatch~fest, i also want to mention the palette's snap case, it's a beautiful sturdy plastic that has some gold embellishment. Unlike other palettes, its thicker and a notch heavier. It has medium~sized mirror inside too, good for quick touch ups.
So far, i believe all the shadows here have shimmers, ranging from a soft sheer to some glittery sparkles overload. So if you don't like shimmers, this palette may not be for you.

Eyeshadows are applied without the use of a primer.

The Ingénue: A naive, innocent girl or young woman.
This part of the palette is the neutral side. Everyone loves a neutral eye makeup, and personally, this is my most used part too. You'll get a neutral gold/bronze look with this one. The gold/bronze shimmer is just perfect for summer, and any other day!

The shade names are fun, and i really enjoyed reading them!

The Icon: One who is the object of great attention and devotion; an idol.
This palette is a pretty purple orchid shade. You can never go wrong with purple specially when going on a night out! This screams diva!

The Bombshell: One that is sensationally shocking, surprising, or amazing.
This part will give you a gorgeous smokey eye look! The shades are more of the colder hues.

Wrapping it up most of the shadows in this palette if not all, have creamy butter~like texture, really easy to pick up, but the downside is the fallout. I experienced a lot of fallouts in almost all the shadows. And it's a bit tricky to apply to get the most of the color to show-up. I've gotten the least color payoff with an eyeshadow brush. But i get the best intense color payoff when applied with my fingers. Or maybe, i just need to buy me~self a better performing eye brushes. (another reason to shop, yey!)
The bases in this palette are also good highlighter for the crease bone!
The staying power without primer is 4-5hours, and if with primer will give you a 8-10hours of wear without creasing, as per my experience.
