The Palette for today’s review, the Matte Eye Shadow Collection, is not only cruelty free, but also Vegan-friendly: there are no animal bi-products.
Too Faced Cosmetics does not test on animals.
“No way, Too Faced loves animals! Our products are totally cruelty-free.”
I’m not sure what is more amazing. The fact that the Founders of Too Faced, and Jeremy Johnson, started their company only 14 years ago and are now a global company; or, that despite unlike other companies that no longer have cruelty free status, Too Faced has stayed true to their vision and remained cruelty free! Thank you, Too Faced, for caring about your customers, and the welfare of animals!
The Matte Eye Shadow Collection was first available exclusively at Sephora in the Fall of 2011. Now you can find this, and other Too Faced “Glamorous Goodies all over the world.”
Too Faced Cosmetics believes that “the modern way to wear matte is to keep it soft, sexy and sophisticated.”
The three large eye shadows are each 0.07 ounces.
The six small eye shadows are each 0.03 ounces.
(Metric: three large eye shadows are each 2 g ; six small eye shadows are each 0.9 g).
Price: $36 ($75 value)
Opening and closing the Palette is easy with a magnetic closure:
There are three cards with directions for creating different looks with the shadows: Day, Classic and Fashion
Tufted Suede: caramel
Chinchilla: warm brown
Coffee Bean: the way I like my coffee- (dark, no cream, thanks!)
Velveteen Bunny : vanilla
Pebbles: stone grey
London Fog: navy
Fresh Linen: light pink
Vintage Violet: violet (gorgeous! and a very different violet from any of the eye shadows that I currently own). Not quite sure how to describe the violet color! This is my favorite color!!
Midnight: soft black

I followed the instruction card to create a Fashion Eye:
Lots to love about the Matte Eye Shadow Collection. It has both cool and warm tones. The shadows applied very easily, and were blendable. There was no fall out from the shadows; they didn’t crease, nor did they fade at the end of the day. *Note, I used Too Faced Shadow Insurance Primer. There are instructions (How-to Cards) in both English, and on the opposite side, French. Vegan-friendly!
