Wish List: Too Faced Summer Eye Palette

For my wish list:

Don't get me wrong, I adore neutral palettes, but look how fun & summery this palette looks! It's about time for a palette with a pop of color! Which is probably why the Too Faced "Summer Eye Summertime Sexy Shadow Collection" exists in the first place. I really love the idea of having a palette that can give you a soft, natural look as well as a bold, nighttime statement! I've never been a huge fan of a super black smokey eye, so my "going out look" tends to focus on adding a bright color.

I've played with these shadows in the store but have yet to make a purchase. One thing I've noticed is that a lot of these shadows are a lot more glittery than I expected. The glitter seemed to be able to stick to the shadow well without a lot of fall-out, so it doesn't look like it's going to be like Urban Decay's "Midnight Cowboy" (aka super glittery with TONS of fallout). The neutrals on the left column are Sugar Sand, Peach Fuzz, and Sunbeam. Sugar Sand, a dusty rose champagne, is my favorite of the 3, with the best pigmented and shimmer. Peach Fuzz (Peach shimmer) and Sunbeam (Pale gold shimmer) are very sheer with a good dose of glitter. They're very pretty, but I'm not quite sure about the strength of the pigmentation. The middle column contains the bold, fun colors, including Plumeria (Bright Barbie pink), Coral Crush (Coral shimmer), and Mermaid (Teal). Plumeria and Mermaid have a satin finish and smooth texture. Coral Crush contains glitter and is my personal favorite shade. I've been dying to try a coral shadow! The right column contains Cocoa Beach (Medium brown with gold glitter, Chocolate Sun (Rich brown shimmer), and Toasted Coconut (Matte caramel brown). All 3 shades are fairly similar to me but with different finishes. Toasted Coconut is also the only matte shadow in the palette. Ideally, I would've liked to see at least one more matte shadow in this collection.

For those of you who've purchased this, what do you think so far?
