The story about obtaining the Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Palette is not as sweet as (peach) pie. In fact, it took me 3 separate orders before I finally was able to have it in my possession. First, I was able to grab it on the HSN.com website (would ship on April 26), but because I wanted to be able to share it with all of you and because I’m quite the impatient being, I waited until I was able to place an immediate order before I could cancel it. So, yes, I was successful on my first try, but too much of an overachiever. So, when Sephora released the Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Palette, I “ran” and ordered it, but because I was being too hyper about the palette, I didn’t realize my mistake of the wrong address. After calling Sephora, they told me it was no problem and to call when the tracking number was emailed to me, and so I did, but they had to cancel it because they said it sold out shortly before I was able to place an order. So, thankfully, I realized I had my back up of the HSN.com order if all else failed. But, somehow, Sephora restocked and I grabbed it WITH the correct address. Then, I cancelled the HSN.com order and released it to someone else, hopefully. Now, let’s talk about the palette and how it performed.
The packaging of the Sweet Peach Palette is adorable. It is in a sturdy tin with raised peaches. The strong aroma of peach hits you as soon as you pull the palette out of the box. The scent is artificial, and smells a lot like peach hookah, rather than the fruit scent. When you open it, it has a beautiful yet whimsical look continuing through. The mirror is a decent size, and there are 18 eyeshadows housed within.
Taking a closer look at the eyeshadows, you see they are all peachy keen names.

For my eye look, I used Candied Peach on the lids, Puree in the crease, and Bellini in the center of the lid, and Luscious on the browbone.
Overall, I must say that this palette was definitely a major want for me because my son is my personal Georgia Peach, as he was born in Atlanta, Georgia. I also love peaches, and craved them majorly when I was pregnant with my son, so it’s even more so the reason I call him my Georgia Peach. It did have plus points and negative points. Some of the shadows were a bit more powdery than the others, but the shadows I used in my eye look did not have any fall out. When I swatched them on my arm, I saw some of them creating fall out, but overall, they performed really nicely and blended well. I love the peach-inspired shades! The scent was a little overwhelming but doesn’t translate onto the eyes, which really made me happy, and it was altogether a fun palette.
What do you think? Will you be trying your luck for this palette?
