Too Faced A La Mode Eyes Eye Shadow Collection

A La Mode Eyes Eye Shadow Collection ($36;, is one of Too Faced's Summer launches. Its a beautiful palette that features warm browns, a smokey blue, a gorgeous copper and a few other eye shadows in a high shine, shimmery, metallic finish. I've had A La Mode for a while now, so here are my quick thoughts with some photos & swatches! *Press Sample

The packaging is nice -  the shadows are packaged in a compact tin with a nice little mirror inside. The textures were smooth, bendable and quite easy to work with. Cannes, Soleil and Cote d'Azur were my favorites that I could just swipe and go when I'm not sure what to wear on my eyes. Monaco is nice for a pop of color and Jardin is a great lid color for lighter skin tones. I did find that the shadows in A La Mode had a tad more fallout than few other too faced palettes I've tried, but they were still easy to blend and all of them have a gorgeous sheen to the overall finish, once blended. The shadows in general wore about 6-7 hours, crease-free, with a good primer underneath. Overall, its really a beautiful palette, not every shade works for me, but there are some fabulous shades that I would buy even as singles. A La Mode also comes with a little booklet with step by step instructions to create various eye looks.
