We are CONSTANTLY looking for dupe products in the beauty world. Most of us can't afford a ton of high end brands or any at all. You have to be careful in your dupe search though. Some dupe palettes can be counterfeit or have harmful chemicals in them. I received this palette from a website called ShopHush. I am an affiliate with the company after doing much research on them and the brands sold within the site. I have been playing around with this palette for some time and wanted to take a closer look at it for you all and see if it is a dupe for the Too Faced Peach Palette. Click the Read More for the full review!
The Face Candy Sugar Palette retails for $10 on the ShopHush website and app. The Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette retails for $49 on the Ulta website. That is a HUGE difference in price! The palettes are both a tin material and both have mirrors that are on the small side due to the product name taking some of it up. The Too Faced Peach Palette contains fragrance to make it smell like peaches along with other ingredients. The Sugar Palette is fragrance free so even sensitive skin people can use it. The shadows in both the Too Faced Palette and Sugar Palette are made with Talc and Mica. It is the first two ingredients on the ingredient lists for both palettes. Both palettes have quite similar ingredients. They are both cruelty free as well even though Too Faced was just acquired by Estee Lauder which requires animal testing through China. Too Faced has been a member of PETA since 2001 however, and maintains they are still cruelty free. Both palettes also contain .95 grams of products.
Now, looking at both palettes side by side, you can see that there are obvious differences. The placement of similar shadow colors and the some colors in general are completely different. However, if you do look for matching colors, you will almost find it in every single one. There might be a slight color difference, but you can definitely tell that Face Candy was trying to dupe the Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette. So, that begs the questions, is it worth getting over the Sweet Peach? Lets break it down and see.
The first row of the Face Candy Sugar Palette:
Glaze (Matte Light Pink)
Cherry Pie ( Pink Shimmer)
Cinnamon Sugar (Golden Champagne Shimmer)
Blueberry Pie (Blue Toned Purple with Purple Glitter)
Gingerbread ( Warm Toned Brown Shimmer)
Brownie (Warm Toned Matte Dark Brown)
These shades are all quite nice with the exception of Blueberry Pie. While on the finger it looks fantastic, swatching it is a whole different story. Its hard to not get a patchy placement and lose a ton of pigment when trying to blend it out. Also, the purple micro glitters in it fall out and you are left with what you see in the picture above. What looks like a dark brown matte shadow. If you don't mind that shade of the blue toned purple it is suppose to be, great, but I was a bit let down. Other than that, the rest of the shades are amazing and creamy and blend like a dream. The shimmers are so amazing I would of never guessed they came from a $10 palette.
The second row of the Face Candy Sugar Palette:
Latte (Yellow Toned Matte)
Sugar & Spice ( Pinkish Brown Shimmer)
Hot Cocoa ( Warm Toned Brown)
Chocolate Cake (Red Toned Brown)
Mocha (Red Toned Bronze Shimmer)
Blackberry Tart( Matte Purple with Micro Glitter)
The second row swatches are also very good. I think my least favorite is Blackberry Tart. There seems to be a theme with the shades I do not care for. You can tell from the swatch that it is patchy and doesn't blend well. Its very chalky in formula, but you can work with it on the eyes if you go slow and use a little by little technique. The other shades are creamy and blendable and very pigmented and once again, the shimmer shades blow you away.
The third row of the Face Candy Sugar Palette:
Whipped Cream ( Matte Vanilla Cream)
Creme Brulee (Yellow Toned Satin)
Candy ( Peachy Matte)
S'mores (Warm Toned Brown Shimmer)
Pistachio ( Green Moss Shimmer)
Liqourice ( Satin Black)
These shades are gorgeous! Even the black blended out well and was pigmented without being patchy. I love the moss green in the palette and it is so creamy and the peachy pink matte is a favorite transition color for me! Over all, I was very pleased with this row as a whole.
My over all conclusion with this, I would rather have the Face Candy Sugar Palette. I do not have the Sweet Peach Palette, but I have swatched it in store and played around with it. The quality of the Sweet Peach Palette is a bit better than the Sugar Palette, but the shades and formula are so close that it really does not matter. Especially when the price is almost $40 cheaper. The only major difference in these palettes is that the Too Faced palette smells like peaches while the Sugar palette does not. The shadows in the Sugar palette are pigmented and creamy and pigmented. I didn't care for Blueberry Pie or Blackberry Tart, but you can work with them. The shimmers in the palette are incredible and will blow you away. You definitely feel like you're getting a steal with this palette only being $10. The ShopHush website has a ton of dupe palettes for all sorts of high end palettes. I think its amazing for people who can't afford high end. This is a way to get the same type of palette with great formulas still. These are not counterfeit and do not contain harmful chemicals either. It makes you wonder how a company can do all that for $10 yet we are charge at least $50 for high end when they are almost exactly the same in quality. I vote SHOPHUSH!
