Too Faced The Return of Sexy Eye Shadow Palette 2 of 10I love organized face palettes for us non-beauty-pros, and this new set has 15 shades organized into three complementary looks. I especially love that this set comes with waterproof eyeliner and their much-praised Eye Shadow Primer (which extends the wear of your shadow).
