Mascara -Too Faced -Better Than Sex Mascara

foto

What sex did the person who invented this has? It`s such an average mascara.
It feels and looks like a mascara you had in your makeup collection for 8 months and you suddenly remember to use again. It does not have a creamy consistency. It flakes on the eyelashes BADLY, it does not add volume, it does not separate the lashes and it`s impossible to work with on the bottom ones because of the size of the wand. Whenever I use this mascara I have to come with a second mascara on top of it to make sure my eyelashes look decent.
The only positive thing I have to say about it that the packaging looks cute.
Stick to brands like Maybelline, L`oreal and Max Factor if you want nice eyelashes. This is a huge waste of money.

Concealers -Too Faced -Born This Way Concealer

foto

If you have oily skin..do yourself a favour and skip this concealer. It's the type of product which will only sit on your face without doing anything helpful. I tried it with the Born This Way foundation and it disappointed me big time. I don't know if they are expected to work well together because i didn't see anything like that happening. It creases, it doesn't really blend into the skin or brighten up the look. It just settles into the fine lines and cakes up the look and clogs the pores, regardless of the setting powder applied on top.

Eye Primer -Too Faced -Shadow Insurance

foto

I have mixed feelings about this primer. I am not sure if it's just mine, but when i try to squeze it out of the tube a LOT of oil comes out of it, wayy before the actual product does. It looks exactly like an expired product, but weirdly..it works. It blends beautifully into the skin, leaving a very smooth texture, perfect for applying the eyeshadow. The pigment stays there, there's no smudging, no creasing and the eyeshadow looks perfect even after 10 hours.
It may seem like a product that can be replaced with a concealer; but truth is..it's on a different level. Highly recommend it!

Ok it's not better than sex but better than most mascaras I've tried... People at work thought I use fake lashes. The brush is the best. If I could have this brush and Lorac pro formula Im sure I would finally have a HG mascara

Pressed Powders -Too Faced -I Want Kandee Banana Pudding Brightening Face Powder

on 9/22/2017 1:40:00 PM

foto

I think this is a new product, it was in the front display area at Ulta. I like yellow tinged face makeup, it works for my light to medium coloring, and since I don't wear blush, it helps to brighten and add a touch of warmth to my skin. This was around $30 and I would definitely buy it again.

There is no real banana scent, which was a little disappointing, it just has a slightly sweet scent. It goes on very sheer, and is almost invisible on the skin, so don't expect a lot of coverage. Doesn't look heavy or cakes or settle into fine lines. I would say it's more of a finishing powder, so I wear it either over moisturizer or over tinted moisturizer. I have normal skin, tend to need a touch up after 4 or 5 hours with most powders, but with this one, I barely need a touch up at all, it has great staying power! I can't compare it to other Too Faced powders, because this is the first of the brand I've tried...but I'm definitely impressed!

Foundations -Too Faced -Born This Way Foundation

foto

I have mixed feelings about this foundation, as much as I wanted it to work...it`s a failure for oily skin. It is the first High End foundation I bought and since I didn`t know any better, I assumed it was the best out there; until I came across Estee Lauder Double Wear. It has a flawless coverage, it gives the skin a healthy glow and conceals any (minor) imperfections. However, after the first 2/3 hours, it becomes extremely cakey and it feels like it`s "melting" off the skin. I try to set it with Laura Mercier translucent powder, Mac Studio Fix Powder, nothing. Once the oil breaks through the skin, the entire face is ruined.
It`s still a beautiful foundation, and I try to wear it only when I know I won`t be outside for too long.
My shade is Porcelain and it complements my fair skin like no other foundation.


Bronzers -Too Faced -Sweetie Pie Radiant Matte Bronzer – Peaches and Cream Collection

on 9/21/2017 5:56:00 PM

So, I definitely bought this bronzer for the packaging and presentation. It's adorable, and it looks like pie (sort of), and it's a radiant matte finish. When I actually tested it out, I did enjoy it. I am very fair, and this is definitely a pigmented bronzer, so I have to be more careful when using it. It's definitely not as rosey as I was hoping, but it wasn't unwearable on my skintone. I tend to prefer rosier bronzers/contours (NARS Olympia is perfection for me) on my skintone, but this leans towards a warmer more true bronze shade. I wouldn't say this is a must have, but it makes me happy and I will enjoy using it up.

Liquid -Too Faced -Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation

on 9/21/2017 5:36:00 PM

I am not a huge fan of matte makeup in general, but a lot of reviews on YouTube were saying that the claims this is a "comfort matte" were true, and honestly, the packaging made me really want to try it. It is definitely a medium coverage, I tend to prefer full coverage, so I used about 2 pumps of this to get my preferred level of coverage (they are pretty small pumps, though). It looked great, not cakey at all when blended in with a sponge.

The shade Snow is probably the closest I've ever come to a perfect shade match, which I really wasn't expecting. The finish of this before I set it with powder was not what I could call dewy, but it definitely wasn't totally matte. I guess it was more of a satin finish, but a very subtle one. It felt a slightly tacky to me, but I don't tend to have time or patience to wait for foundations to totally dry down. I do use a lot of skincare on my face to keep it moisturized, so I'm sure that played a part in the finish.

I really put it to the test by wearing it on an 80°F 90% humidity day where I was out and about. It help up fairly well, except around my upper lip (when I sweat, it always starts on my upper lip, which is incredibly annoying!) where it noticeably broke down. It remained beautiful in all other areas, even where I had sweated, so not sure why it broke down only around my upper lip. I wear glasses and sunglasses, and I was kind of shocked at how little transfer this had onto them (there was still some, but less than usual).

Love the packaging, love the amount of product you get (1.6 oz vs the usual 1.0 oz). I'm not crazy about the whole peach scent, I bought the bronzer where it is definitely more noticeable, and I'm just not a fan. But it never lingers very long so it's basically a non-issue. I also love that it is photo friendly, I think I may have found my wedding foundation!

Foundations -Too Faced -Born This Way Foundation

This foundation has been a life saver for me! I never used to have to wear any base, just a little concealer and powder on my nose. Then I developed type 1 rosacea (redness on cheeks and nose and visible veins). It completely changed the way my face looked as I previously was very pale with orange-ish freckles and yellow undertones. My neck is still very pale yellow. These new pink/red/purple tones in my skin made pretty much half my wardrobe and entire lipstick collection look terrible on. Transitioning to regularly wearing foundation has been a learning curve, and most days I just want something quick and easy. I have found Too Faced Born This Way in Porcelain to be perfect for this. Plus it is fragrance free and doesn't irritate my dry, very sensitive skin. Been using this for around 4 or 5 months now so feel confident saying it is a non irritating product, for me at least! Applied over Laura Mercier SPF 30 primer or a good amount of moisturiser it just seems to glide across and sink into the skin, looking really natural and not like makeup at all. The colour initially seems slightly dark for my pale skin, but once spread on my face evens out and covers up the redness well, matching my forehead (where I don't apply any product). You can still see a few of the freckles on my nose peeking through which helps make it look more natural. I apply this with my fingers - using a brush or beauty blender was less successful. A brush picks up dry patches on my skin, and I found a beauty blender sheered the product out too much. The only downside is this - on really bad skin days when I am very flushed some redness does show through. Those days require something more like the Kat Von D liquid foundation. Also, the shade guides online are a bit off. Porcelain is touted as more cool/pink toned, but definitely pulls more of a yellow toned peach on my skin. I would recommend trying out samples or checking colours in a store. Also not sooo keen on how the packaging looks, but it functions just fine. Overall though, 5/5 for great natural looking medium coverage and a non irritating fragrance free product.

Palettes -Too Faced -Just Peachy Velvet Matte Eye Shadow Palette

on 9/21/2017 9:20:00 AM

foto

I was so excited to order this being that I love the original 🍑 palette and love anything 🍑. I was not let down!! I have tried all of the shades except for Chocolate Dipped and they're all really great quality. They blend beautifully and aren't patchy like a lot of mattes I have tried. I use MAC PLW Concealer with LM Translucent powder as primer so they wear like iron.

One of the only palettes I've ever owned that I use every single color except for the 1 really dark shade. This really is a palette you can create many looks with by itself. I do like to use it with the Sweet Peach palette for the shimmer shades though on occasion.

I'm NC15 with blondish hair and light green eyes. I tried the Urban Decay Naked Heat palette and found that I just didn't like it on my fair skin especially with the colors being so similar. So if you're not a fan of that one, I highly suggest trying this one. I think it would be great for someone starting out with makeup since you've got your crease, lid, highlight, and outer v shades all-in-one.

The ONLY drawback is that I'm not a fan of the scent. I love the original 🍑palette scent but this peach fig is a little too perfume-y for my liking and could be problematic for sensitive eyes.

Lips -Too Faced -Chocolate Honey

Got the metallic chocolate and all i can say is it smells good but its not pigmented its mostly a silver glitter with a little chocolate color. I got it on discount at marshalls but i regret this purchase. Not even worth the 6.00 I paid for it I can find cheap lip gloss that has the same sparkle and it doesnt stay on the lips long either.

Pressed Powders -Too Faced -I Want Kandee Banana Pudding Brightening Face Powder

on 9/20/2017 1:55:00 PM

foto

There are cheaper banana powders out there. Ben Nye makes a finely milled loose powder that you can buy in various sizes. For $16.50, you can get 42 grams of Ben Nye’s powder. The Too Faced I Want Kandee Banana Pudding Brightening Face Powder is $30 for just 9 grams. However, the Too Faced powder is pressed which makes it less messy than Ben's sifter jar.

The pressed pan is yellow but it has little flecks of pink and blue and green in it. It has a brightening effect on my skin applied lightly, but if I overdo it, it is noticeably yellow. (For reference, I wear NC20 in MAC Studio Fix Fluid.) Therefore I use it sparingly. It can be useful for compensating for temporary surface redness from sun exposure. I think medium skin tones may enjoy this more and can get away with using a heavier hand. Although I can set my undereye concealer with Banana Pudding Powder, I still prefer Charlotte Tilbury’s Airbrush Flawless Finish Pressed Powder for that purpose. Her powder sinks imperceptibly into the skin and looks more natural to me. However, the Banana Pudding Powder is more pigmented and better for color-correcting.

Too Faced formulated this face powder to smell like banana pudding. The vanilla is most noticeable to my nose. If you have sensitive skin that is easily irritated by fragrance, this won't be a good choice, but if you’re a fan of the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palettes and peach palettes, you might enjoy having a scented banana powder.

I don’t consider this to be an essential item for people who have never used banana powder before or people who do not have a specific purpose in mind for the powder. I like it, but it’s not something I reach for every day. I did not notice a pore-blurring effect.

However, I do recommend it for people who have been applying banana powder on a daily basis for years and suddenly need a travel-friendly option. Banana Pudding Brightening Face Powder comes in a handy compact with a mirror. It is a good substitute for your usual yellow-toned loose powder because it won’t scatter all over the inside of your suitcase, and the size is better for packing.

Palettes -Too Faced -Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar

I love this pallet so much!! I've finally found my staple eye shadow pallet. This truly is the pallet to rule them all. And even the negative points on how "dull" the blue is, I'm actually really glad that it is. I use it on my lower lash line with my brown eyes, and it makes my eye color look awesome without having a crazy neon blue. I would recommend this pallet to just about anyone, hands down!

Liquid -Too Faced -Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation

Where do I begin…I was so, so excited for this line because of all the amazing pre-release reviews on YouTube and plus one youtuber said it might work on mature skin. I’ve been looking for the right foundation for years (I have an entire drawer full of expensive crap that didn’t do what it was supposed to do). Well, I decided to give myself the foundation, blur and loose powder (loose powder was sold out) for my birthday (09/15/17) and boy is it well worth it. I purchased the color “Snow” and although it was a little too light on me, once I put the blur on, it looked like if I had a custom-made shade. In the description for “Snow” it also says that it has “rosy undertones” but I’m very neutral to sometimes slightly yellow and didn’t have any “rosy undertone” issues. Let’s start the review here, the foundation has almost two ounces in it, so for $36, it’s not that pricey (most come with only 1 oz. for the same price). Secondly, it is a light coverage but it is buildable and lastly but not least, this stuff lasts all day; it does not transfer; does not get shiny; controls oil; does not settle into creases and lines (I just turned 52); does not cake; doesn’t morph or separate; and did I mention…IT LAST ALL DAY! I also want to mention that around the midpoint of the wear day when I was out and about, I looked in a mirror and noticed a tiny bit of shine around my cheeks (I live in Miami where our seasons are “Summer…Summer…REALLY HOT SUMMER and Summer) and thought “oh well...I guess it didn’t meet the hype” but within a half hour, by some miracle, it had corrected itself and I had no shine whatsoever (I had heard some of the YouTubers mention this but didn’t believe it until I saw it myself). I honestly cannot explain the miracle correction but it happened. I purposely didn’t go to bed on Sunday (09/17/16) night until midnight so that I could have at least tested the product for 10 hours of wear time and it looked the same as when I put it on 10 hours earlier. Although it does not transfer or budge all day, it was not difficult to remove at bedtime.
