I don’t own an embarrassing truck load of blushes because on my cheeks, it’s either nothing, or pink, or coral. I’m boring like that when it comes to blushes. Due to non-existent cheekbones, I spend more time on my best features – my eyes – to draw attention away from my flat cheekbones to my played up eyes.
I thought I’d heard too much good stuff about the Too Faced Papa Don’t Peach Blush so it was only time that it promptly went into my basket when it waved at me. Yup, I don’t look at makeup, they just stand up and wave at me, shouting “HEY JULI! IT’S MY TURN TODAY!”. Hoho.
Too Faced, like Urban Decay and Benefit, likes to package their powder products in paper boxes, albeit very sturdy cardboard ones. Another popular cardboard-made palette is the customizable makeup Z-Palette. I think paper gives a lot more room for design elements, metal probably makes printing a little more challenging.
Paper is more environmentally friendly too! Normally I shun the Too Faced palette boxes because they are wayyyy too bulky, but this one is just right.
On the cover of Papa Don’t Peach is a Madonna look-alike pinup doll of the 50’s. Wavy hair, highly arched and waxed eyebrows, crazily thick eyelashes, red lipstick and of course, warm peachy cheeks. So very retro. The packaging makes me wanna play dress up in a polka dot dress and dance a-go-go.
