Mascara -Too Faced -Better Than Sex Mascara

I wanted to love this mascara so badly. As a frequent user of Perversion, I was suggested Better Than Sex.

The packaging was heavy, yet you get less product than other mascaras of similar size.

The formula didn't build and smudged on my lower lids. Very disappointing.

I've been using this bronzer for the past 4 years... and i'm never going to switch it.
i love it, it doesn't come off strong and dark on the skin.

Loose Powders -Too Faced -Born This Way Ethereal Loose Setting Powder

on 10/17/2018 2:27:00 PM

I really love this powder as I think it gives a nice soft, matte finish. It's finely milled and just leaves a nice finish on the face. Love the packaging as having the sifter with a cap helps prevent spills and makes it very travel-friendly. I first tried the medium shade but it was a little dark and orange on me (I have tan, Indian skin). So I went with the translucent shade, which is perfect as it is truly translucent and doesn't add any color. Even better than LM's powder as that one still leaves a bit of a white cast, is more expensive, and is less finely milled. And I can tell this will last forever! Highly recommended!

Palettes -Too Faced -White Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette

I love the OG chocolate palette, so I figured to give this one a try. It smells amazing but the colors are... not great. It has some nice transition shades, but everything else is really sheer and barely pigmented. For $49 there’s hundreds of other options. Disappointing.

Palettes -Too Faced -White Peach Eyeshadow Palette

I can't write how much I HATE this palette, it is a total waste of money!

- Barely any pigment
- The glittery ones, well where's the glitter? When on, there's barely a speck on my lids
- The matte ones are SOO chalky - its like a thick layer of powder on my eyes with a hint of colour
- The darker ones are RIDICULOUSLY hard to blend.
- Wish i could return it
- Packaging is lovely but that's it

I didn't realise it was scented either, I don't get it, why?? Who's sniffing my eyes? .

Primer/ Corrector -Too Faced -Hangover Rx Replenishing Face Primer

on 10/16/2018 10:09:00 PM

I generally have had horrible luck finding a primer I like and that works for me, but I am on my third tube of this. So that is amazing to me. I love this stuff. I see it isn't very popular, which is unfortunate. But for me, it's been great. I see others say it's like a moisturizer. Fair enough, I can see the comparison. But I do feel that it does a great job of smoothing and prepping the skin for foundation. My foundation looks much better when I wear this. Now I have to say, not EVERY foundation I own plays well with this, but I think that is true of any primer you buy. I don't think that any one primer will work with every foundation. But this does work with most of my foundations. (I have a lot of foundations, too many,) I don't think this does a whole lot for increasing the longevity of my foundation, so that is a negative. But I use the Hangover RX spray after my makeup is done, and that does increase my wear time a lot, so I'm ok with it. In the summer when I am oilier, I don't use a moisturizer under this; when the weather starts to turn cold and heating season starts, and I start to get drier, I do use a moisturizer underneath. I also love the packaging. The pump dispenser works great, and I don't have any product waste with it. It keeps the product fresh. I haven't had any trouble with the pump not getting all of the product out of the tube. Overall, I find this to be a great primer for me, and I am happy to have found it.

Loose Powders -Too Faced -Born This Way Ethereal Loose Setting Powder

This powder is ok, and that's about it. I have other loose powders I like much better. It's not bad, it's just not great. It is visible on my skin after I apply it, even after I buff it in, which is a problem. A generous amount of setting spray helps with that. I can deal with the mess that the packaging creates, as I find the majority of loose powders to be a mess. But this product is too pricey to be as mediocre as I find it to be. I got this as part of set from HSN, and I would never purchase it on it's own.

I love this setting powder, but it doesn’t do an amazing job. It does a great job but I have other powders that work better (Beauty Bakerie Flour Setting Powder for instance). The packaging is also a real hassle, that sifter and the cap that seals the sifter works really nicely but is a real pain when you have excess powder with nowhere to put it.


Lip Gloss -Too Faced -Tutti Frutti Juicy Fruits Comfort Lip Glaze

How is no one on here talking about these?!

Picked this up yesterday at Ulta after finding myself in need of a new nude gloss. Needless to say, what I ended up with is not nude, but it is STUNNING! I grabbed the shade "Yummy Rummy" which is a STUNNING gilded bronze with a rusty undertone that is just sooooo flattering. It's EXTREMELY shimmery, with big gold glitter running throughout, but I love that kind of finish since it adds a lot of dimension to my somewhat small lips. (I have a big ol' liver bottom lip but my top lip is.... dainty.) I paired this yesterday with a plummy eye look, and today with an orange/gold look, and it works beautifully for both. This is a good shade for all seasons, it seems, as it's rusty enough to pull off a gorgeous warm look for Autumn, a dramatic gold for the holidays, or a pretty bronze glow for the warm months. It's extremely versatile.

The formula is to die for. It's not sticky at all, but is shockingly long-lasting for a non-sticky gloss. I don't find that this feathers at all and doesn't get all over my teeth, and it's comfortable throughout hours of wear. It's super hydrating and my lips look full and healthy during wear and even after I remove the gloss. When I do remove the gloss, the glitter is left behind. I don't mind this, but some may hate that. I do find that it gathers a teeeeeensie bit in the corners of my lips, but all glosses do that, so I'm not mad. No gloopy ring around the inside of my lips. No sliding all over the face. Definitely the best formula I've tried. There is a slight fruity scent, but it fades quickly upon application and there's no discernible taste.

The packaging is cutesy, which I know is polarizing; you either love it or hate it. I happen to love it. The little notch cut out of the edge of the lid is a cute touch, and I love the fruit print. The tube is sturdy and heavy, and the cap twists to an indent that keeps it closed. The applicator is a sort of flattened doe foot that coats your lips easily with one swipe, but also allows for precise application around the lip line.

At $20, it may be considered pricey for those who are gun-shy about purchasing high-end makeup. However, you get 7g of product, which is considerably more than I'm used to seeing in a lot of glosses (most of which seem to hover around the 5g mark). I don't mind spending more if I get more. In fact, this was the deciding factor between this gloss and another tube of the Bare Minerals Gen Nude Lacquer (which I also love, but you get WAY less product).

I'm definitely going to try other nudes in this range. I'm not one for super bright glosses, so not every shade blows my skirt up, but if the other nudes perform anywhere near as beautifully as this shade, I'll be pleased.

Lipstick -Too Faced -Melted Matte Liquified Long Wear Matte Lipstick

I’m not used to lipsticks that don’t transfer, so I was pretty uncomfortable wearing this one even though I always wore lipsticks like this before I went for kiss-proof ones. I love the formula but I wish it was a little bit dryer so that it doesn’t transfer! Would probably repurchase (Lady Balls is such an amazing vintage red). Quite messy if you use your mouth a lot through the day (eating, kissing, etc)

A great dupe for Tarte Shape Tape! The only difference is that Shape Tape is slightly thicker, but this one works great cause it has the same coverage as Shape Tape but isn’t as cakey! This didn’t crease under my eyes at the end of the day as much as Shape Tape does.

Beautiful color even my BF loved who hates makeup. It’s a deeper redder shade of gingerbread man. The shades are similar but if I only had to pick one it would be gingerbread girl!

Eye Shadow -Too Faced -Chocolate Gold Eye Shadow Palette

i never really dabbled much with eyeshadow in the past but with time i'm expanding my makeup comfort zone.

too faced was a name i recognized and understood to be a fun brand that still was on par quality-wise with department store products. i chose this specific palette for its color selection; i like shimmer but i also need to look professional. most of these shades suit that purpose. i also like the subtle cocoa scent - gimmicky, sure, but why not, right?

my issue is the fallout. oh my the fallout. now some have said that a primer could be useful but a primer isn't necessary to boost the pigment or prevent creasing. you can eliminate fallout 90% of the time by applying with your fingers as opposed to an eyeshadow brush (i was using a mac brush). i apply foundation with my fingers, but it seems finger paint-y in this context. it's also that much harder to wield control of the color.

all that said, i have received countless compliments from using this palette and my lids are still fresh after ten or more hours of wear. i don't think i'd repurchase this specific one (it'll probably last ages anyway), but i'll revisit too faced in the future.

Best. Concealer. Ever. Covers dark under eye circles like no other. Brightens up your whole complexion. Easy to apply and blend. Great color selection. A decent bit of product for the $29 price tag. Was about to repurchase the usual MAC pro long wear, but so glad I reached for this instead. So hydrating just like you’re born that way :)
