After missing out on the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette earlier this year, I’d forgotten all about it. That is, until Jerrod Blandino teased about the restock this Summer. BUT! It wasn’t just a restock, it was a full on peach infused collection! One that would include a blush, a highlight/blush/bronzer palette and lipglosses. That pretty much rekindled the flames for everyone that missed out the first round. Including myself.
On December 1st, during the Sweet Peach launch party, the palette was pre-released on the Too Faced website. I happened to catch the IG post earlier that evening so I knew around 9:45p PST they were going to have a limited amount available for early access.
9ish is usually bedtime for my little monsters and that’s when I’m laying next to L and nursing him to sleep. It was a great time for a pre-sale launch, ha. I logged into the Too Faced website and made sure to have my info ready as it would be the first purchase I’d make via their site (I usually get everything on Sephora for VIB credits).
Once 944p hit, I reloaded the direct link to the palette and was able to add it to my cart. I started to check out but the website refused to load after I’d selected to pay via PayPal. After witnessing the site lag and then ultimately crash I figured I would just have to wait until 12/14 to order/try again. The queue was over 8000 (and climbing) at that point and I was ready to give up and go to bed.
On a whim, I opened a new browser window and the site loaded! The palette was still in my cart so I went ahead and checked out via Paypal. I was surprised others were still waiting in a queue at that point as I was able to check out without an issue. It must’ve been some kind of technical glitch. However, I’m surprised the company wasn’t fully prepared for influx of traffic for such a coveted palette.
In any case, my order went through and I received an email confirmation right away. Now we’ll see how long it will take for this much hyped, long awaited, peach scented palette to arrive.
