Too Faced Summer 2009: Too Faced Pinch My Petals Blush Review, Swatches, and Photos

As part of it's Summer 2009 Collection Too Faced introduced three new stand alone blushes entitled Pinch My Petals Blush.

I love that Too Faced has extended their rather cute, retro glam girl packaging to their single product cosmetics. They normally reserve this style packaging for their popular Quickie Palettes so I'm quite delighted that they created three single blushes in this design. I'm actually hopeful that this could set the wheels in motion for them to extend themselves further on such packaging. Each blush features a different pin up girl, too cute! These are a flip style durable cardboard compact with mirror. Too Faced Pinch My Petals Blush ($19.50 USD) is available in three shades so far which are Pinch My Petals (sheer pink), Mocha Mi Amore (muddy brown), and Papa Don't Peach (peach/coral).


















If I'm honest I really didn't like Mocha Mi Amore or Pinch My Petals. Mocha Mi Amore was terribly dark on me and quite muddy, not a flattering shade at all. And Pinch My Petals was too sheer to really enjoy and a tad on the chalky side as well. The real star of the collection is Papa Don't Peach which could pass for a subdued Orgasm-like shade. The pigmentation was lacking a tad bit on both Mocha Mi Amore and Pinch My Petals plus the matte finishes just weren't working in the least for this Muse however Papa Don't Peach definitely had a nice slightly shimmery finish with plenty of pigmentation, quite a lovely Summer shade.


Overall, I love the packaging, liking the price (not too bad a deal at $19.50) but was a tad disappointed only one of the three shades worked for me. As I mentioned I look forward Too Faced possibly introducing other items with this style packaging, that much is a big win for me.

Anyone try?

Love 'em?

Leave 'em?

Tell the Muse!
