Too Faced Clover Palette Dupe - CColor Fairy Tale Palette
It’s Friday and we love an opportunity for swatching! Who doesn’t love a new palette review?!
*According to Cruelty-Free Kitty, Too Faced is cruelty-free. CColor Cosmetics claims to be cruelty-free.
Makeup Maven, Kayla, says: Too Faced “Clover” palette is $49 for 18 shadows & CColor Cosmetics “Fairy Tale” palette is $9.50 for 18 shadows as well. Both palettes have tin packaging with mirrors. I think Too Faced’s palette is a bit cuter with the cartoon candy, puppies & kitties on the cover. My eye immediately went to Too Faced over CColor. I always thought the “Clover” palette color story was odd but I also think it was an over looked palette as well. “Clover” has a slight scent but I can’t put my finger on what it is. It isn’t potent nor unpleasant. Side by side the palettes look identical. It’s truly amazing. While swatching all of the shades appear extremely similar except for “Cuteness Overload” in the Too Faced palette is more white while its corresponding dupe in CColor’s palette is more pink. All the shades in CColor’s palette match the reflects & shimmer in the Too Faced palette. My favorite shade is definitely “Best Friends” - CColor replicated that color extremely well. I wore both palettes on each eye for a little over a week trying out almost every shade in the palette at least once. I used at the most 4 shades with each eye look. I could not tell the difference after I was done. Both eyes looked the exact same. The only thing I noticed with CColor’s palette is that the shadows went on pigmented if I packed the shades on my lid but when I went to go blend them out the color just kind of faded away. Both brands are really easy to blend but with CColor, you do have to pack a bit more shadow on to get your desired pigmentation. This wasn’t a deal breaker for me. I did get minor fall out from both brands as well as kick back in the pans. Tapping off the excess from your brush before application helps with this, of course. Both brands lasted several days of 12 hour wear time. I was incredibly impressed with both palettes. CColor Cosmetics knocked it out of the park with this dupe. If you’ve been wanting to try Clover but didn’t want to shell out $49 - have no fear - CColor Cosmetics duped it! Buy our pick
