Peach shades have been long time favourites of many when it comes to makeup, especially lipstick and blush. More recently, thanks to the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette, it’s started a whole peach eyeshadow craze. I’m not complaining though, because I am one of those people in the craze, haha. Since the peach eyeshadow craze is pretty new, there aren’t many palettes out there similar to the TF Sweet Peach. So naturally when I came across this Etude House Play Color Eyes Juice Bar Palette, the question “Could it be?! Could this palette finally dupe the Sweet Peach palette?” came immediately to mind.
In the Etude House Play Color Eyes Juice Bar palette, it looks like many shades are similar to the Sweet Peach. However, after swatching both palettes side by side, it’s clear that the answer is still no, it’s not a dupe. At all. Only two shades are similar enough to be dupes, which are the shades Bellini and Tempting from the Too Faced palette. Even though it’s not a dupe for the Too Faced Sweet Peach, it is still a very gorgeous peach palette. There is a good variety of light to dark shades, and a good mix of mattes and shimmers (also one glittery!). There is a shimmery light gold shade, called Bubble Bath (most right) that is a beautiful highlight shade, and Raw Cacao (most left) is amazing to smoke out any eye look.

Even though I’ve heard amazing things about this palette, I was a little worried about the formula and pigmentation of these. I’ve tried some Etude House single shadows that were just …meh. However, I’m happy to report that the formula of these Etude House Play Color Eyes Juice Bar palette eyeshadows are pretty good. They’re very soft and buttery, and the pigmentation depends on the shade, but overall is pretty good. The only shades where the pigmentation are a miss for me, are Raw Cacao and Soft Peach.
These eyeshadows are very easy to pack on for full-on colour, with a brush or your fingers. They also blend seamlessly into each other. However, these don’t last very long on their own on my oily eyelids, but that’s pretty normal. With an eyeshadow primer underneath, these can last the entire day.

Where to Buy?
Overall, it’s a pretty good palette. Would I run to the store (or their website lol) to get it right away? Probably not. The palette has a good mix of peach shades that are pretty unique and not easily dupable, but they’re honestly not something I would wear every day. But of course, that’s just me! If peach is your thing, and you’re sick of using the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette all the time, this is for you!
