This is the second of the two music themed palettes that Too Faced released in June 2014. The other was the Country Palette featuring eyeshadows in “Nashville Nude” shades. Both of these eyeshadow palettes are Ulta Exclusives and can only be purchased there or on the Too Faced website. They retail for $36.
The Rock N Roll Rock Candy Eye Shadow Collection features 9 different eyeshadows that create many amazing looks. Like most of the Too Faced palettes, they come with 3 different looks: day, classic, and fashion. The 3 larger shadows are 0.07 oz each and the 6 smaller shadows are 0.03 oz each.
The packaging is thin and easy to use and the look suits the palette’s name very well. The palette has a magnetic closure, which makes opening and closing very easy, yet still secure, and there is a mirror on the inside, along with a few diagrams of suggested looks for the various shadows. I love the cute musical names for each color. The musician in me is pleased 🙂 You’ll notice that the words are printed in white. I did this because you couldn’t make out most of them in the photos. The packaging itself is gold print on the black tin.
Rockability- A neutral, matee beige color that’s on the lighter side. Great for an all over neutralizing color, the color payout is high and the application is pretty smooth.
New Wave- A baby pink with white sparkle, however it looks more sparkly in the pan than when applied to the skin, so the glitter doesn’t really show up much on the eyes. This leaves you with a matte pink shade that has the same use as Rockability.
New Romantic- This is a more golden beige color, still on the neutral side, with a pearly, luminous (without being overwhelming) finish. The color payout is strong and the application is smooth.
Rap- Yellow gold with a metallic, bright finish. The color payout is very strong and it’s staying power was also strong. The formula was quite powdery as it gathered on the brush and int he pan, but the application itself was pretty smooth aside from a little fallout.
Pop- A frosted, deep plum. The pigmentation isn’t quite as strong as some of the others, but the color is beautiful. With a good base and an extra layer ( my swatch was two layers) the color is stronger. It blends nicely making it easy to work with.
Glam Rock- A taupe with white glitter. While it looks shimmery, the shadow itself is matte. Application is soft and easy with decent color payout, and the glitter shows up more in the pan than on the eye.
Ska- Warm brown with a metallic finish. The color payout is strong and the application is soft and blendable.
Heavy Metal- A deep, dark royal blue with shimmer and a pearl finish. It’s slightly on the powdery side, but pigmentation is strong and the application is smooth.
Punk- Deep forest green with green shimmer. As you can tell, it took a few layers to get this color to appear dark and solid, as it fades out without a good primer. The pigmentation is initially strong and the shadow is slightly powdery.
All in all, this is a wonderful palette, especially for people who like to play with darker colors. It definitely gives off a Rock and Roll vibe with it’s smokey eye potential and deep, metallic tones. I wanted to thank Too Faced for giving me the opportunity to play with and review this beautiful palette. I recommend it for any eyeshadow lover.
I was sent this product for consideration for a review, but I was not paid. All opinions are my own.
