Screen Shot 2017-09-05 at 9.16.57 PM.png

Hey everyone! I am starting a new series on my blog titled Wow! or Waste?

Since so many of you have expressed that you really appreciate the price comparisons that I include in my product reviews, I have decided to do a whole series surrounding this, but with new makeup launches. Whether a whole collection has been launched, or just a new product, I’m going to evaluate whether each product is either a Wow! buy or a Waste? of money, in terms of the price and the amount of product you get.

I’m going to start this series by evaluating the Too Faced Peaches and Cream Collection, which is exclusive to Sephora.

“For the first time in Too Faced history, they’ve created an entire line exclusively for Sephora. The Too Faced Peaches and Cream Comfort Matte Collection is infused with refreshing peaches and sweet fig cream—ingredients known for their hydrating and antioxidant-rich benefits—to help keep skin moisturized, comfortable, and beautifully matte.”

Because there are so many products in this Peaches and Cream Collection, I will be breaking this collection up into sections.

Every day, I will publish a new post with two more items from this line, so be sure to keep checking back so that you can see whether the item you are interested in is a Wow! or a Waste?

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
– Parabens

– Phthalates”

Price and Quantity

This eyeshadow palette is priced at $55 CAD and has 0.48 oz of product, split between 12 different shades. For comparison, it’s difficult to find other palettes that play on the peach theme. However I’ve done my best to find the ones that are the most peachy, and for the rest of the comparisons I chose palettes that were largely warm-toned. Other eyeshadow palettes that are semi-peachy are the Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette ($59 CAD/0.54 oz/18 shades), the Kylie Cosmetics Royal Peach Palette (~$56 CAD/0.6 oz/12 shades) and the Viseart Eyeshadow Palette 10 Warm Mattes ($100/0.84 oz/12 shades). Other warm-toned palettes that provide good comparison are the Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette ($66 CAD/0.6 oz/12 shades), the Sephora Collection Sephora Pro Warm Palette ($85 CAD/1.12 oz/26 shades), the NARS NARSissist Loaded Eyeshadow Palette ($74 CAD/0.48 oz/12 shades), the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette ($55 CAD/0.28 oz/14 shades), the Stila Eyes Are the Window “Spirit” Shadow Palette ($59 CAD/0.51 oz/12 shades), and the Stellar Magnetic Eyeshadow Solar Palette ($50 CAD/0.22 oz/10 shades).

Here are the comparisons listed from best deal to worst deal:

Rank Company’s Product Mentioned Above Cost ($ CAD) Quantity (oz) Number of Shades Cost-Quantity Ratio for 1 oz of product
1 Sephora Pro $85 1.12 28 $76/oz
2 Kylie Royal $56 0.6 12 $93/oz
3 TF Sweet Peach $59 0.54 18 $109/oz
4 UD Naked Heat $66 0.6 12 $110/oz
5 TF Just Peachy $55 0.48 12 $115/oz
6 Stila Spirit $59 0.51 12 $116/oz
7 Viseart Warm $100 0.84 12 $119/oz
8 NARS NARSissist $74 0.48 12 $154/oz
9 ABH Modern Ren $55 0.28 14 $196/oz
10 Stellar Solar $50 0.22 10 $227/oz

Wow! or Waste? Hard to say since it is in the very middle of all examples given. I think what is important is that it is not a Wow! Therefore, you might want to research some other eyeshadow palettes before biting the bullet on this one. However, if the colour story of this specific palette is what draws you, then go for it, because it is sort of one-of-a-kind in that aspect! Ultimately you will also have to decide whether you prefer colour variety or product quantity.

Price and Quantity

This translucent finishing powder is priced at $38 CAD for 1 oz. This is an incredible amount of product for a finishing powder! For the comparisons, I tried to choose products that were specifically mentioned as a finishing powder, rather than a setting powder, and those that are supposed to have more of a natural glowy finish, as opposed to a matte finish. The other finishing powders that can be compared to this one are: The Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Microfinishing Pressed Powder ($45 CAD/0.21 oz), the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder ($55 CAD/0.35 oz), the IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Pressed Poreless Finish Airbrush Pressed Powder ($38 CAD/0.31 oz), the IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Airbrush Perfecting Powder ($45 CAD/0.33 oz), the Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Tinted Pressed Finishing Powder ($43 CAD/0.39 oz), the Urban Decay Naked Skin The Illuminizer Translucent Pressed Beauty Powder ($39 CAD/0.31 oz), the Algenist Color Correcting Finishing Powder ($53 CAD/ 0.32 oz), the Marc Jacobs Perfection Powder – Featherweight Finish ($58 CAD/0.45 oz), and the Laura Mercier Candleglow Sheer Perfecting Powder ($46 CAD/0.3 oz).

Here are the comparisons listed from best deal to worst deal:

Rank Company’s Product Mentioned Above Cost ($ CAD) Quantity (oz) Cost-Quantity Ratio for 1 oz of product
1 TF Peach Blur $38 1 $38/oz
2 Tarte Smooth $43 0.39 $110/oz
3 IT Cosmetics Bye Bye $38 0.31 $123/oz
4 UD Illuminizer $39 0.31 $126/oz
5 Marc Jacobs $58 0.45 $129/oz
6 IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better $45 0.33 $136/oz
7 Laura Mercier Candleglow $46 0.3 $153/oz
8 Hourglass Ambient $55 0.35 $157/oz
9 Algenist Color Correcting $53 0.32 $166/oz
10 MUFE Ultra HD $45 0.21 $214/oz

Wow! or Waste? This product is definitely a Wow! It has an incredible amount of product for the price, compared to all of the other finishing powders I saw on Sephora. If you are looking for a finishing powder, I would seriously consider researching more on this one!

Well that’s all for today’s Wow! or Waste? Were you thinking about purchasing either of these products? Will you go through with it now that you know their value?

    1. I have! I’m not quite sure how I feel about it yet. I love the smell, and it seems to be quite pigmented, however it seems to lay down a really thin layer when applied and you can’t really build it up. I got Sunday funday, so because it’s a nude I’m having a hard time telling how it is wearing cause it is like exactly my lip colour lol. I almost want to try a more vibrant shade so that I can more easily see how it wears! Regardless, it’s pretty comfortable. What are your thoughts?

    1. Thanks so much for reading! Personally, I was super taken with it when I first saw it but I swear I have all those shades in singles lol so for once I listened to my brain and didn’t go ahead and purchase.
