I originally had thought to post my review of this palette and then wait a few weeks to share a tutorial with the palette…but after playing around with this palette, I thought it would be best to combine the two.
I know I’m going to be giving away my review…but I honestly wasn’t very impressed with this palette. But before I spill all the beans, let’s jump into the tutorial!
Too Faced Cat Eyes Palette Tutorial
Step 1: Sweep Meow All Over Lid
Make sure you apply primer before starting any eye look — this will help your finished work last much longer, and also help to amp up the colors in your shadows.
Once that’s done, apply Meow all over the lid. This will helps all the colors blend together.
Step 2: Pat Tiger’s Eye in Outer Corner
Keep it concentrated only in the outer third of your eye. Don’t worry if the colors aren’t blended together — we’ll get to that in a little bit. 🙂
Step 3: Sweep Leopard in Crease
This will help blend the previous colors together and also deepen up your outer corner.
Step 4: Press Purr onto the Center of Your Lid
Place it right into the center, and blend toward the inner corner of your eye. Once again, don’t worry about how it looks, we’ll blend it out in a minute.
Step 5: Blend!
Now is the time to take that big, fluffy, clean blending brush and sweep all the colors together into a seamless look.
Step 6: Line the Eye with Panther (wet)
Spritz a bit of facial spray (I used my Evian Facial Mist) onto your flat liner brush before picking up the color and lining your eye. If you aren’t a fan of winging out your liner, then don’t worry about it. 🙂
Step 7: Highlight Your Brow Bone with Meow
You don’t need much on your brush, just enough to highlight right below your brow bone and blend into your crease.
Step 8: Brighten Inner Corner with Kitty Glitter
I wanted a pop of color in my inner corner, so I thought Kitty Glitter would do the trick. It looked like a beautiful sparkling silver in the pan….but as you can see from the pictures, it didn’t really show up that well. This was the color I was most disappointed with in this palette.
Step 9: Darken Lower Lash Line with Tiger’s Eye & Leopard
To complete the eye look I took a mixture of Tiger’s Eye and Leopard on a brush and swept it under my lower lash line.
The rest of the steps are just finishing up this look!
Step 10: Apply Black Liner in Waterline
I always like applying black liner in my water line. I feel it smokes out the look a bit more — which is something I always like going for.
Step 11: Apply Mascara
Now just take your favorite mascara and give your eyes a really good coat!
My Mini Review of the Too Faced Cat Eyes
As I said above, I wasn’t too impressed when I swatched the colors on my arm the first time. And then when I used it to create this eye look, I liked it even less.
While the color swatches showed up on my arm pretty well (except for Kitty Glitter…I gave up on that one, lol), it took me several tries to get it to show up that well. Another thing I noticed was that when I would try to blend out the colors….I felt like the color would disappear.
While I used a primer before doing this eye look, it took me a good bit of work to build up the colors to what you see in my tutorial. I own several drugstore shadows that show up and blend much better than this palette.
So, to sum it up, I really can’t recommend this palette. Several of the colors are dry and chalky, and just difficult to work with. And for $36…I feel like you could just save up another $6 and buy the LORAC’s Pro palette and get amazing pigmentation, blendability, and longevity of wear.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above from Too Faced in the hopes that I would mention them on my blog. Regardless, this does not guarantee a review or feature on my blog. I only share information that I think will be useful for my readers and I only recommend products I have personally used and liked.
