Loose Powders -Too Faced -Peach Perfect Loose Setting Powder

It’s so hard for me to find a good setting powder for my dry, aging skin. This powder is amazing!!! It doesn’t stick to dry patches. It doesn’t settle into my pores or fine lines either. It also doesn’t give an overly powdery look, and seems to brighten my complexion!! Obsessed!!

Eye Primer -Too Faced -Shadow Insurance

I have been using this for a couple of months and I am so in love with it. I used UDPP from the time that it was launched in the hard-sided purple "genie" tube with the doe foot, and I thought it was the gold standard. After a while I tried other, less expensive options that worked about as well as UDPP, so I thought that all eyeshadow primers were about the same. During the recent Sephora VIB sale I decided that I wanted to buy UDPP again to see if the new packaging made any difference, but it turns out that for some reason (probably due to the way air can build up in the tube), Sephora only ships it ground since it is considered hazmat. Not wanting to wait longer for my package, I decided to try TFSI instead. There are a few TF products that I like, but generally their brand doesn't appeal to me very much, which is why I have stayed away from their eyeshadow primer. I am glad that I didn't let my bias sway me from trying this product though, because it is definitely a holy grail now. I have hooded and somewhat deep set eyes, so I definitely need a primer to prevent shadows from creasing. TFSI really does wear like iron, and it gives a little extra oomph to matte shades as well. The packaging is simple and effective, and for the price I definitely think it is worth it. It performs much better than the lower end primers I was using, and it outperforms UDPP for me as well.

It's a lovely palette, I think the name fits it well, It's perfect to create a "sexy", polished look with. The shadows are nice, blendable, not extremely pigmented but pigmented enough (I don't even want crazy pigment), there's no "dud" shadow. I took a star out because it's really expensive for how small it is. But honestly I love it and it's one of my favorite palettes. I attached a picture with my makeup done with this.

Brows -Too Faced -Brow Quickie

This is the only product that I need for my brows and it lasts super long. My brows are already naturally shaped and thick enough so they don't need to be drawn in or defined very much. I like this mascara since it keeps my brows neat and it covers foundation which always goes in my eyebrows. I use very little though and scrape a lot of the product off the wand before using it since my brows look scary if I add more than a little.


Mascara -Too Faced -Better Than Sex Mascara

I loved the travel size of this, it thickened and lengthened my lashes beautifully. However the full size one was the complete opposite, it would clump and barely lengthen my lashes, and no thickening whatsoever. The ends also looked really stubby which gave off that spider lash look, and I would find smudges underneath my eyes.


Bronzers -Too Faced -Sweethearts Bronzer

Bought this on vacation because I wanted something i could use while my skin was tanned, and a bronzer which would recreate the summer holiday-tan. This is perfect. In the summer it is really thin, glowy, melts perfectly into the skin and do not look powdery in the sun. In the winter it is still glowy, but no sparkly glitter. It also layers nicely over a heavier foundation.

Foundations -Too Faced -Born This Way Foundation

If you are looking for a yellow based light white fair skin toned foundation this could be for you. If your skin is sensitive and dry this foundation and color could work for you. I chose the color Snow. And Snow looks white with a hint of gold going on my face. But, it does darken or oxidize and provides me with the exact light shade I am looking for. I used to have greasy skin but now closing in on 50 my skin has become dry. My skin has the orange peel texture around my nose and lower cheeks. I have rosecea so finding a foundation that can fill pores, cover texture and look beautiful is a challenge but TooFace born this way does it for me. For those with the red flushed look a yellow based foundation is the key to covering that red tone and this shade does it for me.

Does it last?
Not like ELDW but it gave me a good 3-4 hours of coverage. I tested without a primer for 3-4 hours of coverage. I need to carry a blotting paper or brush and powder to make it last. The reason I like this foundation more than ELDW is that it is easier to take off and does not seem to break me out. The foundation makes my skin feel better not worse after wearing.

Lasting power? Can I make it last?
Yes. I have tried this with a primer and when I use a primer I get a good 6 hours out of the foundation. I am still playing around with primers as I don't love silcones.

Good for dry skin?
Yes, for me it was. I have dry flaky skin and it does not cover the flakes but if you can gently exfoliate and put this foundation on after moisture it can cover your skin nicely. Just be sure to let your skin dry after moisture before applying the foundation as I believe this can cause oxidation if you mix the foundation with lotion.

How does it feel?
The foundation has a beautifully silky feel that must be because of the coconut oil. This does not dry quickly so you can work with it slowly.

Breaks outs?
This did not break me out and I have sensitive, easy break out skin with a red rosecea all over. I was impressed that it covered my skin without looking too heavy. But be aware those of us with rosecea need a full coverage foundation. If you are looking to look natural barely there makeup like Bobby Brown or Nars this might bot be your choice. This foundation has a medium coverage to hide your skin.

Does it seep in wrinkles and lines?
Yes a tiny bit. But not like ELDW or Revlon Colorstay. I do not think it aged me but rather the shade brightened my skin tone making me look younger the way my skin looked years ago. It does have a powdery feel so if you are looking for dewy tanned from sweating in the sun after tennis, this is not your foundation. This is a foundation that gives a matte effect with sparkles or shimmer to create movement in the light. It is subtle and lovely.

I would buy this again. While the lasting power is not as great as other foundations the way my skin feels during and after use if far more important to me.

Mascara -Too Faced -Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara

I noticed a slight problem with this mascara pulling some of my eyelashes out while curling them. But, last night while curling my eyelashes the way I have for over 40 years, every eyelash came off my one eye using this mascara!!!! I am FLIPPING out and my eye is irritated and I just filed a complaint with Too Faced. I own MANY of their eye shadow pallettes, brushes, blushes, etc. 100s of dollars worth. I love their shadows, but will never use this mascara again. And for the record, my eyelashes curler was clean. Ladies, be careful...we need our lashes to protect our eyes... I don't want anyone to experience what I am going thru now.

I love this mascara however I found it dried out very quickly and the brush became brittle and started breaking.... got a good month out of it maybe less. Still love the mascara though, works beautifully.

It's an average foundation average price and bottle. Nothing outstanding about it for me it's meant to be full coverage but there's other brands out there like Kat Von D and YSL which do a better job. Wouldn't buy again not a bad product but equally not wow amazing either.


Lips -Too Faced -Melted Latex Liquefied Lipstick

foto

I love Too Faced products but this was just awful. It definitely isn't the worst lipstick that I've ever used but it's still pretty bad. I got this on sale at Sephora and even though I got bought them for a really good value, I will be returning every one of the eight lipstick colors I bought. This delivers none of what I want in a "lipstick."

First of all, they should call this a gloss. It's very, very sticky and sheer. If I wanted a gloss, I would have bought a gloss. Though I didn't mind the shine, I think that good lipstick needs to be pigmented to get the most bang out of your buck. The colors are nice but they're nothing I haven't seen before.

Second of all, the smell is absolutely dreadful. I ended up having to plug my nose when applying. It's such a strong fragrance that I wanted to puke. I really liked the colors "Rated R" and "I'm Bossy" but the smell made me never want to look at these products again. I wanted to test out how long it would last but the smell caused me to take it off right away.

Lastly, it has a very thick consistency that was super heavy on the lips. I prefer light-weight products that feel comfortable. After a few minutes, I had to take it off because it was so heavy and the smell ruined my day.

I wanted to love this product, buying eight of them, but sadly,


Palettes -Too Faced -White Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette

I really like this palette!!!! I know like many others I was a bit thrown off at first by the color combination, it seemed a bit...odd! However, after wearing it on a regular basis for the last couple of weeks I have to admit, it's really grown on me! Admittedly there is a particular theme to the colors, I wouldn't say it's a multi-use palette or for those who prefer a more natural, conservative eye look. I've mostly created sparkly pastel looks but I think they are actually perfect for winter time so, there you go. Pearl Candy has to be my favorite of the palette, it's a perfect inner corner highlight and Banana Date is so multi-purpose it's perfection. My other two favorites are Cookie Dough and Chocolate Syrup. I would say the weakest link in this palette is Black Sugar...too much glitter and not enough pigment. Lavendar Cake and Guilt Free are also quite sheer but I think they're supposed to be and they can be built up if need be. Wear seems comparative to the other Too Faced Chocolate Bar palettes, nothing THAT special but still just fine, especially over a good eyeshadow primer. Overall I'm giving this palette 4 lippies because despite maybe a tad too much glitter in Black Sugar and Frosted Apricot, I'm really enjoying the colors. LOVE!!!!

Highlighters -Too Faced -Diamond Light Multi-Use Highlighter

I’m a little torn on this one, but my only “gripe”, if you will, is the color, so it’s strictly personal preference.

The formula is absolutely Devine. This provides a finish like no other highlighter I’ve ever used. Completely sheer yet very present. It’s the closest thing to a real life photo filter Ive seen in that it creates a lovely sheen with undetectable texture - other than added “smoothness” (there’s probably a better word than that but I’m not going to use a thesaurus it’s just a highlighter.)

And, while I’m not usually swayed by packaging I would be lying if I said I didn’t feel like Too Faced was proposing to me as I opened this double jewel box and I couldn’t wait to say yes. This puts Tiffany’s to shame. The product itself is an emerald cut jewel so pretty I didn’t want to put a brush to it.

Now- the color was a bit of a disappointment to me because I expected it to be more chromatic - meaning, I expected it to have a more varied iridescent color play.

In the box it looks as if it will be a mix of blue, light gold and pinky peach. Once applied it’s pretty much all blueish. Which I don’t mind because I like cool shades, but I was hoping it would have a bit more “life” to it, if that makes sense.

Update: after having worn this a bit more I have to add-a heavier application takes on an ashy cast. Not a deal breaker but not ideal, obviously.

I’m looking forward to reading more reviews of this because I’d love to know what you all think.

Terrible. I find this foundation dry and cakey. It looks like I’m clearly wearing makeup. It has itty bitty glitters in it. This foundation ages my by at least 5 years...
