We throw a lot of shade at Too Faced for coming out with the same old boring neutral palettes. With the same colors. And sometimes terrible color payoff. It appears Too Faced heard our cries because their newer releases are much better than what we’ve seen in the past. I was completely blown away by the new Chocolate Gold Eyeshadow Palette. So I had high hopes for the new Clover Eyeshadow Palette, too.
I Wasn’t Disappointed…
The Clover Eyeshadow Palette isn’t perfect but it delivers in many ways. For starters, it’s a hell of a refreshing change from the sea of neutral palette releases we’re bombarded with. We’ve gotten so wrapped up in warm neutrals that we’ve forgotten how to have fun with some color! Too Faced gave us a break from boring neutrals with the Clover Palette. And I appreciate it!
The Clover Eyeshadow Palette pays homage to the smallest (and cutest) member of the Too Faced family, Clover the dog. Too Faced owner, Jerrod Blandino, created the Clover Eyeshadow Palette as a tribute to his best friend and Too Faced mascot. Clover is seen as a fun, bubbly, happy-go-lucky pup with lots of spunk and friends that are depicted throughout his colorful themed palette.
Color with Balance
Brands tend to go overboard with the colors when they launch fun, colorful palettes like the Clover Palette. Too Faced did it just right, though! The Clover Palette isn’t just a bunch of random colors slapped together. It’s actually cohesive and features a few neutrals too. Making it surprisingly easy to create a complete look using the Clover Eyeshadow Palette.

Is the Clover Eyeshadow Palette Brown Girl Friendly?
Hells yes! Chocolate cuties can rejoice as most of the Clover Eyeshadow Palette is pretty workable. I got a chance to use it over the weekend and I was quite impressed with how many crease colors I had to work with. On average, I can squeeze at least 3 crease shades out of a single palette. However, I get a solid 4 crease shades with the Clover Palette including Love Is Love, Cuddle Buddy, Daddies Love Me and Fur Baby. Plus, a possible if you add Paw Print. I think ladies lighter and darker than me will be able to have some fun with the Too Faced Clover Eyeshadow Palette. And I appreciate Too Faced for not missing the mark on this one.
Is the Too Faced Clover Eyeshadow Palette Good Quality?
The colors are beautiful but the shadows were not all created equally in the Clover Palette. Most of the palette has great pigmentation. While some of the more pale shades could use a bit of building to really make them pop. There’s some iffy-ness in the blending quality, too. I wore Love Is Love as a transition shade over the weekend and loved how popped on my brown skin. However, Love Is Love got a little patchy and difficult to blend. The other shades I used (Daddies Love Me and Ruh Roh) played nicely though. So it’s not all bad.
I think the Clover Eyeshadow Palette is a rather nice bold palette overall. It’s much better quality than some of Too Faced’s previous palettes. Plus, it’s more thought out than any other colorful palette on the market. If you ask me. I think it’s well worth a try! You can find the Clover Eyeshadow Palette online at Too Faced for $49.
