Pit Of The Peach Palettes: Too Faced Sweet Peach VS. Kylie Cosmetics Royal Peach
Earlier this year, peach themed cosmetics were ripe for the picking. Too Faced released their Sweet Peach Palette as part of their Sweet Peach Collection and are still pumping out fruity products with their Peaches & Cream collection rolling out this fall.
Around the same time, Kylie Cosmetics introduced her Royal Peach Palette. I couldn’t be the only one who noticed the influx of sweet, pinky, fruit cosmetics, right?
Luckily enough, I received both as a gift so I’ll cover the differences between the two!
Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette
This was one of those most-sought after palettes that immediately flew off physical and virtual shelves upon their release. "Sweet" isn’t an exaggeration, as this palette exudes soft, luscious, pink southern lemonade vibes.
There are eighteen colors in the palette which consist of light peach to glittering nude brows, vibrant pinks and a daring shimmering green, purple and navy (which I would consider more "black").
Yes, the palette smells like peaches! The whole palette smells like Gummi Peach Rings, which can actually be very distracting if I’m getting ready for dinner. The colors are very buildable but I haven’t ventured much into the darker colors because they seem a bit unfitting, but it’s great for a sweet daytime look.

Kylie Cosmetics The Royal Peach Palette
This palette is so drastically different that it feels almost wrong to compare them beyond the names. First of all, I’m not going to take off points because this palette isn’t scented. I don’t think people normally press their noses against their eyeshadows so I don’t think it’s fair for them to compete in that race.
Anyway, this palette has 12 colors, which are a lot bolder and louder than that of the Sweet Peach Palette. There are your usual nude browns, as well as a very bold red, pink, blue and purple. I love combining the red and gold for a rose gold look.
Although the Sweet Peach Palette is more blendable, I think the Royal Peach Palette is much more pigmented and suitable for a nighttime look. A similar complaint to Sweet Peach; I’ve found it difficult to use the really dark blue in this palette, as it doesn’t match the rest of the set.

Bold Colors That Command Attention
There is no battle really. These palettes are completely different and perfect for different uses in my opinion. The Kylie Royal Peach Palette is $45 and the Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette is $49, so you do get more colors with Too Faced but the pans are larger in Kylie's. I would recommend Too Faced for more versatile everyday looks and Kylie Cosmetics for an edgier look.
