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

This happens to be one of 5 primers that I currently own. Out of all of the primers that I own this is the only one that is silicone free, which is why I was very interested in trying it, plus, it has probiotics in it and other ingredients designed to revitalize the look of ones skin as well as provide a smooth base for you to put your foundation over. Overall, I do really like this primer, and will definitely continue to purchase it again.

Because it retails for $32, I buy it when I have a chance to get it at a discounted price off of the TF website. First off, I happen to have dry-to-very dry, sensitive, acne prone skin. Also, I do suffer with seborrheic dermatitis on my face as well. Plus, I do currently use generic Retin A 0.1 cream on my face also, so dealing with flaking is something that is a constant battle for me. I do normally stick to using fragrance free products on my face, due to how sensitive it is and my having experienced a lot of negative experiences in the past, when I have used products with added fragrance to them. However, thank God this primer does not negatively affect my skin at all. The smell that it has is of a synthetic coconut scent. It is tolerable, as I do not find it something that I find bothering me throughout the day at all.

The product has this light lotiony texture that spreads very easily, and I have not experience it feeling greasy or tacky on my face at all. It dries down rather quickly. Now when it comes to how it performs in making my makeup last any longer than other primers that I own, I can personally say that this primer does allow for my makeup to stay on a very long time. The only major difference is that it provides a level of hydration to my skin at the same time, while it's doing it's job towards keeping my face well primed, and keeping my makeup look as fresh as possible, for as long as possible. So it's really like using a light hydrator+moisturizer all-one. Which is great for me, because I am really not a fan of using moisturizer and then primer underneath my foundation, because it just feels like too much is on my face.

Unlike other primers, this one expires 6 months after you first use it. When most primers, stay fresh for up to,12 months. However, because I truly adore this primer, I am willing to deal with such. Now, I do feel that this primer is one that can work for all skintypes. And, would be especially for a lot of people to use especially during the Fall and Winter Seasons when the weather is very cool or cold out and you definitely need a little something extra to perk it up!

Palettes -Too Faced -Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Collection Palette

I wasn't planning on buying this when I went into Ulta but a different palette that I wanted to try was out of stock. I figured this would be a good choice because the Chocolate Bar was my first high end purchase ever and I’ve had that for a couple years now so I had the expectation for the quality of the Peach to be great too.

I don’t find the scent to be too strong, it just smells like those gummy peach ring candies lol. Basically if you know that meme/video where the little girl is doing a makeup tutorial and she stops completely just to smell the lipgloss really hard, thats how I am with this palette.

I always use primer on my lids because I have oily skin and even when I swatched this in the store it was very pigmented. Bless Her Heart and Nectar were two shades in this palette that stood out to me when it first came out and I really wanted it. Peach Pit and Delectable were the actual first two colors I used along with Nectar for an inner corner and they all went on smoothly and blended well.

Even when using a fluffy brush for the crease I did not get much kick-up from the shadow. The shimmers are very smooth in application. For the lighter matte colors I do find myself needing to dip back into the pan maybe twice to build them up so they are more vibrant on my skin tone. For better payoff I can use the NYX Milk pencil and then use a flat small brush to pack the color on, with the shade Georgia (shows up as a pastel pink on me) that method works well.

In reviews that I’ve watched on YT people were not too thrilled with Talk Derby To Me but to me it is like a blackened smoky version of Black Forest Truffle from the Chocolate bar. There can be fallout with the glitter getting underneath my eyes but I do my eyes before my face so it can be swept away.

I am very happy with this palette! I love the gradient on the packaging and the raised peach detail.

Eye Shadow -Too Faced -Chocolate Bon Bons Eyeshadow Palette

This is not my first Too Faced palette. Since my skin runs on a little warm I had wanted a warm-toned palette. So I tried the Semi-Sweet first and hated it. Most of those colors were too dark and I could never get an eye look to actually look good. I tried the Peanut Butter palette next and didn’t like that either - most of the shades were so glittery - glitter fall-out everywhere! I was going to give up on Too Faced and then I was talked into the Bon Bon palette. I looove this palette so much. It's not the warm colors I was looking for, but with my fair complexion it's so much more flattering. So if you're more on the fair side I would recommend it. You might have to work a little for color payout for lighter shades, but I actually appreciate that – I’m not looking for super saturated color. There are only 2 shades I never use: pecan praline (too cool-toned gray for me) and Café Au-Lait, as there is a lot of glitter fall-out. I’ve even used Totally Fetch (if I want to slightly intensify the lighter pink colors or just bright a little warmth to an eye look) and Earl Gray (as a liner or to smoke out an eye look). I took off a lippie, as I think this palette is pretty pricey.

Foundations -Too Faced -Born This Way Foundation

I have oily skin, I got a sample of this from Sephora. I went in wanting to just try this because I had heard people RAVE about this foundation! Now, I LOVE too faced products. The hangover primer, shadow insurance, highlighters. Of course, my ride or die makeup product better than sex mascara. But this, sadly it disappointed me. it made me so shiny in my t-zone and even on the places on my face that never gets oily. It lasted for about 3 hours for me without getting oily, and it didn't fade. One thing I noticed, the more oily I got the heavier it felt. This didn't break me out, the coverage was medium to full coverage, it is buildable, which will help if you need more coverage in certain areas like me. This doesn't cake IF you apply it right ( not too much powder, less it more, etc...) If you have dry skin this will work amazing for you. It's hydrating and has a beautiful skin like finish. It's just if you have oily skin like me, I would get a sample to try this first before you purchase this. Overall wonderful foundation, if I wasn't oily I would totally buy this again. Also, DISCLAIMER!!! For my more emotional ladies out there, I had a crying fit with this on at school and it DOES NOT that through tears, it will streak and come right off!!

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

on 9/17/2017 6:49:00 PM

Too Faced is a brand I don't shop. The packaging doesn't appeal to me as a minimalist aesthete.
While on a shopping high with my SA at Sephora, I paid for my pile of goodies and came home to oogle and fondle my beloved new babies when I noticed this peculiar compact gleaming at me so I naturally inspected it!

I decided that I needed to get over my bias and try the damned thing on my face. Am I ever glad I did! Though this bronzer claims to be "matte" it adds a low key radiance to the cheeks. It is all at once the perfect amount of bronze and blush for my NC20-25 with olive undertone. Very nice texture as well. I am so very pleased. It does have a synthetic candied peachy smell but didn't bother me or my sensitive skin.

Though I will not be whipping this compact out for touch ups, it'll be in heavy rotation in the coming colder months to warm up my face.

A strong like!!

Liquid -Too Faced -Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation

on 9/17/2017 5:51:00 PM

This is the foundation that I was looking for! I have combination to very oily skin. I am Nc25/30. I chose the "Nude" color. It has a slight scent that fades. This foundation provides a natural finish. It isn't matte, but I don't get as oily with this foundation as with others (Kat Von D excepted.) I doesn't transfer like Kat Von D's. It isn't heavy, but lightweight and buildable. You can easily get medium coverage with one layer and full if you apply two. I apply another layer in areas that I need it instead of concealer. (But, I still use the Born This Way Concealer under my eyes because the color cancels out dark circles and it doesn't crease (if applied with beauty blender.))

**But how does it compare to Fenty Beauty's hot launch?**
It all came down to the best color match.

I tried the Peaches and Cream foundation side-by-side with Fenty Beauty's Pro Filt'r Foundation in 210. Fenty Beauty's Foundation had no scent and was thicker and harder to blend, but not a big deal to me. I used my fingers to apply both these foundations.

Both performed the same! I tried one on one side of my face, and the other on the other side. Also w/wo the Fenty Primer. That didn't make a difference either. Unfortunately, the Fenty colors that I could try didn't fit my skintone. (My Sephora did n't have the full range yet.) Too Faced's "Nude" color is slightly darker. So I chose Too Faced but will switch to Fenty Beauty should the fragrance in the Too Faced product irritate my skin.

Bronzers -Too Faced -Milk Chocolate Soleil

This is finally a bronzer for fair skinned people! It is not orange either! This product smells faintly of chocolate like all of the products in this line, but the scent is not overpowering. The color is pretty much the same as the picture, and is a rather neutral, light colored bronzer that looks good on fair skin. I have bought a number of bronzer products in the past few years, and this one suits my skin tone the best, which is fair to light. It warms up a sallow complexion perfectly.

Liquid -Too Faced -Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation

I was hesitant to try this foundation because I have dry skin however, as long as I'm well moisturized and use a hydrating mist this is indeed a "comfort matte". I use a damp sponge to apply this and love the medium coverage with just one layer. I am not looking for full coverage but do believe it is buildable with a second layer or perhaps applying it with a brush would do the trick. Color range can be a bit tricky - these shades tend to run a little dark - I got the shade light beige which would typically be my non-summer shade but this is matching my tan well. I'd have to use a much lighter shade in the cooler months. I do not detect a heavy fragrance with this and I have a super sensitive nose. Love that this comes in a squeeze tube with a pump, and you get 60% more product for the price than a typical foundation package provides, and the design is so pretty! The liquid blends easily and leaves you with a soft (but not flat) matte finish. It doesn't settle into fine lines or pores at all, it more or less looks like it becomes one with your skin. I wore this for 12 hours each day when testing it out before coming to the conclusion that this foundation is the bomb! No creasing, no caking, no transferring, no need to powder (at least not on my dry skin), doesn't cling to any dry flakes/patches, just beautiful, flawless, even skin tone. Cream and powder products (concealer, blush, highlight, contour, bronzer) apply easily over top and do not remove the foundation in the blending process. Easily removed with my usual cleansing balm at the end of the day.

I'm kind of blown away by this foundation, I was really skeptical that it would work on my dry skin but I really do love it. So happy to have another foundation to use in my collection that makes me feel beautiful and doesn't require any touchups at all throughout the day. One of my friends has oily combo skin and she loves this foundation as much as I do so Too Faced did a great job with this product. Highly recommend.

Update 10/16/2017 - now that the weather has turned cooler I have started adding a couple of drops of Squalane oil in with my foundation (an essential for me when my skin is especially dry) which doesn’t affect the coverage or the wear, it simply helps with keeping this comfortable on my skin.

Yes, it does have a fragrance. The fragrance dissipates quickly. It is a medium coverage, but easily build able to full coverage. My whole face looked just as fresh and great 10 hours later as it did right after I was finished applying my makeup. It settle a small amount into my deep fore headlines, but using a setting powder on that area solved that. The rest of my face- this foundation di not budge, did not transfer, did not crease, had a beautiful finished all day long.

Blush -Too Faced -Papa Don't Peach

on 9/15/2017 10:08:00 PM

I don't normally wear shimmery blushes but the cute packaging, scent and name of this blush drew me in.

Papa Don't Peach is a beautiful bronzed peach with gold shimmer. When I swatched it at Sephora, I could not stop staring at it and how it glowed.

The packaging is probably the most adorable packaging in my collection but Too Faced always delivers when it comes to fun packaging.

The scent is kind of addictive. I was worried the fragrance would irritate my skin but so far so good. The flush you get is eye catching but subtle.

The thing about this blush is, it's a little trickier to work with if you are oil prone or have larger pores, like another reviewer mentioned. The glitter just emphasizes pores like crazy. When I first applied this product, I was a little shiny and my pores looked like craters. I was horrified and disappointed but thankfully this was was easily fixed with a brush of my Laura Mercier Transluecent powder. I didn't have any problems after that. I imagine a primer that blurs pores would probably fix this as well, though I haven't tried that yet.

While I wouldn't say this is the perfect blush on me, I am definitely going to continue using it. It's a quicky, easy way to warm up your cheeks and add a little life to your complexion.

Primer/ Corrector -Too Faced -HangoverRx 3 in 1 replenishing primer and setting spray

on 9/15/2017 3:47:00 PM

Finally a setting spray that actually does not remind me of hairspray. This 3-1 product works best as a setting spray, but is OK as a primer. I like that it does not leave a shiny finish to my makeup, like MAC and Smashbox. I still use MAC Prep and Prime to spray brushes for eyeshadow, although this product would work as well. Feels nice on my dry skin and does not cause my makeup to gather in lines and wrinkles. This may be the best primer I have tried. Highly recommend!!

Palettes -Too Faced -Sweet Peach Glow Highlighting Palette

I was a little bit skeptical prior to buying this palette because I had read great reviews only coming from people with very fair or fair skin. Well I'm tan and I'm sooo glad I bought it!! The highlight and blush shows up beautifuly on my skin and the bronzer gives me a light contour with a healthy glow. The product lasts on the skin but almost always use a setting spray. The peach scent is light and delightful. Overall a really nice product I would recomend and repurchase.
