Foundations -Too Faced -Born This Way Foundation

This foundation is nice although it isn’t my favourite. I’m still looking for a go to foundation. It is pretty nice overall and it has great buildable coverage from medium to full and it’s feels lightweight. It works great with dry skin bc mine is really dry. Not bad I would recommend but I feel like there’s better foundations than this. Not the best or the worst.

This is my favourite liquid lipstick I have like 20 of them because I love them so much. Although I will admit its not very long lasting but it is very nice. 10/10 would recommend buying on of these.

I received this as a gift. I really wasn't sure if I would like it or not, so I had been looking at it and talking about it, but just couldn't decide if I should buy it. I'm glad I got it. I really do like it. I think the only color I never use is Candied Peach. It's just too peach for me. (I know, it's a peach palette!) But the rest of it, I can find many ways to put these colors together. The quality is great, as I expected. No disappointment there at all. I love the packaging. The fragrance, it is a bit of a fakey peach scent, but I don't really mind it. I really find all of the formulas in here to be quite good. I think it's a good value for the money as well. It's not the palette I reach for the most by any means, but I definitely use it enough that even if I had bought it myself, I would think it was money well spent.

Foundations -Too Faced -DEW YOU Full-Coverage Fresh Glow Foundation

Smells good (cucumber-y) but stings the skin a bit. Although it isn't as drying as many full coverage foundations are, it is not dewy as the name would suggest, nor does it have any glow. Not a perfect color match for me, either. Fairly full coverage, fairly long-wearing. Not the worst I've ever used but forgettable.

Palettes -Too Faced -Gingerbread Spice Eye Shadow Palette

Smell is overwhelming gingerbread so if you like that go for it. I felt it was more teeny bopper than anything. The colors are similar to the ones in the chocolate bar palettes. A lot of fall out and the lighter mattes don't show up much at all. Like I said good for teens just starting out with makeup. Very cute though if you collect palettes.


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

Couldn't use it half the time because it would pill up and I'd have to get up to wash my face and start over with another primer.

Very much liking this. I use it to disguise the odd blemish that I get every now and again and after my Mac Studio Finish this is one of my top favorite concealers. No need to use setting powder, I just dot it where needed using a tiny 2mm craft brush - believe it or not, and I'm all set...no shifting unless of course I was to touch my face (which due to being acne-prone I never do). The only reason I've deducted a lippie is because unlike Mac there's no SPF in here so I have to apply separately before concealer, without which I always notice my blemishes darken after even a couple of hours of UV exposure. Got this in 'Tan' shade. Will repurchase.

This aged me like no other concealer I’ve tried. My lines under the eyes were magnified and it only got worse during the day. Will use my sample up, just because it shouldn’t go to waste, but I will look 5 years older while using it.

Mascara -Too Faced -Better Than Sex Mascara

I have been using this for the past three years. I have tried all the brands and this is the best. The only problem is that I have noticed in the past couple tubes that it's been drying out faster than before... I hope they fix it soon.


Mascara -Too Faced -Better Than Sex Mascara

I deleted my original review, because I feel as I've given this mascara more time to get used to, I actually love it now! The first 2 applications went on so messy, as this is a thin formula. But on the 3rd try, it was a lot easier to work with. At first, I thought the problem was also the brush. But I got the hang of it all, and it is a pretty good mascara! The name kind of deterred me at first, but I just thought of it as any other mascara, to give it a fair assessment. I also got a great deal when I purchased a tube on ebay for only $8 (full size!) Otherwise, to be honest, I don't think I would have purchased it. If I can find it for that price ever again, I would definitely buy another tube.

I like this better than Just Peachy and BTW. Long wearing, hydrating, and most important, Does not oxidize on me! Tried all of them in the same color, too. Hope this doesn’t get D/C.

I bought this because of the raving reviews all over the interne but I must say I‘m disappointed.
First of all the shades I swstched were all super yellow or orange. I picked the shade Porcelain which was the best match for my NC20 skin but still more yellow than I would’ve liked. Almond might have been better but that’s online only where I live so I didn’t want to take the risk...

First I don’t like the packaging. Too bulky and the applicator is too big and picks up too much product. Now if you use the „typical YT-Guru amount“ you’ll probably find the applicator perfect. But I use what I would consider a normal amount, probably half what you see people on YT use - so still a fair amount for "outside people". But I still have to be careful to not apply too much which I rarely come across when it comes to concealers.

Now I could overlook all of the above if the concealer was amazing, but it really isn’t anything special. It’s hydrating for sure and initially it lookes good and smooth but as far as coverage and lasting power go it’s pretty mediocre. I‘d say it‘s medium coverage and lasts only for a couple of hours before creasing. I don’t know what it is but when I wear this concealer my mascara budges like crazy, so after only 4-5 hours I have black lines and dots underneath my eyes.

It’s not a horrible concealer but really not worth the hype imo. I wouldn’t repurchase it or recommend it to anyone. As a reference some concealers that I like are the Mac Pro Longwear in NC15/20 and the Nars pot concealer in Vanilla.
Those have higher coverage and last an entire day on me and I don’t get that weird mascara smudging underneath my eyes whith them.

I apply all my liquid concealer with a brush btw as this works best for me. Application of this concealer with a BB looks really nice, too but as I had more concerns with the staying power and not the initial look application didn't really make a difference for me. I do set my concealer with a good amount of powder but I don't bake.

Bought this concealer because of the hype but honestly its overrated af. Its even drier than shape Tape so if u have dry skin, forget about it. It kinda reminds me of a cheap drugstore concealer cause the pigmentation is good, but it has a dry complex, and creases too much. Compared to Bye Bye Concealer by IT Cosmetics, i would definitely say they have same coverage and Born blends better but Byebye is better for dry skin. Still not sure if I will buy BornThisWay again.

I love this pallette. Use it all of the time. I do start with eyeshadow primer before applying. Whichever color I choose, it stays put for a my entire 11 hour work day.

I bought this because I heard it's a good value for the amount of product you get in a concealer. I own this in Snow and it's a good light, yellow-toned shade. Since my skin is extremely sensitive, I'm glad that this does not break me out or irritate my skin, but since I'm also dehydrated, I was very surprised that it did not emphasize my flakes. Under the eyes it does look a little heavy, so I do not like using this with a brush, preferably a sponge. With a brush it just seems to be too much and cakes up. It does well all over the face as a foundation as well, if you'd prefer to use it in this way, sheered out. In my opinion, this would be a medium to heavy concealer, considering it is in a liquid formula.
