Blush -Too Faced -Love Flush Long Lasting 16-Hour Blush in "Baby Love"

foto

I got this as a set along with the lip injection. While the lip injection is a total pain, the blush is super cute. I got the travel size so I cannot say much about the packaging, but I really like the colour – a pretty coral-orange, and I really like the lasting power because most powder blushes doesn't stay on my face. And I also like the fact that this blush is not very pigmented in a very good way, therefore I can layer them to the pigmentation I prefer. I would purchase them if they were on a sale, since it's crazy expensive where I live.


Foundations -Too Faced -Born This Way Foundation

So, I like this foundation a lot. This may be due to a few things:

1) I have dry/very dry skin. It is very hydrating and sits on my skin beautifully. For me, it also looks better as the day goes on. More natural and a little dewy. Because of this, I'm not sure how well it would work for those with combination to oily skin, but I could be wrong!

2) I find that if I really pay attention to the ingredients in my other face products, the foundation looks smooth and flawless all day. If I use any silicone or oil-heavy skincare or primers with the foundation, it breaks up and starts to slide off my face within a few hours. Switching to water-based products drastically improved the wear time and look/feel of the foundation on my skin. The foundation also seems, for me, to perform better when set with a talc-free powder. This may be a fluke, but I suspect that it does make a difference.

I love the medium coverage, the satin finish, and how it wears on me throughout the day. I use less concealer when I wear this. No real detectable scent for me, and it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin.

My main gripe is the color selection. I'm in the shade Swan and it just barely works for me because of how yellow-toned it is. I'm also so pale that there is no way I'd be able to wear a shade besides Swan. The price is high, but I can live with it since I've decided to only splash out on foundations that really work well for me.

Overall, this feels nice on my skin, looks natural and radiant, and I look forward to applying it daily.

Concealers -Too Faced -Born This Way Concealer

Geez! So surprised by the bad reviews! My skin is light in tone and combo/ oily around my tzone. I apply this under my eyes, a dot on my lids, a few dots down my nose and on any blemishes on my chin. I blend with my fingers and set with powder. I personally really like this! I get that you need about 2 layers under the eyes for dark circles, but to me this looks great and cuts out the need for foundation. It looks natural and it is oil free and the shade 'light' matches my skin perfectly. I have repurchased, and my first tube lasted me around.. 6 months? I will continue to repurchase this!

Eye Shadow -Too Faced -Peanut Butter and Honey

on 7/12/2017 8:35:00 AM

The Peanut Butter And Honey palette was a surprise for me; a surprise in that I really enjoy it, whereas I was underwhelmed by the vlogger-approved and raved about Peanut Butter And Jelly palette. The brand's general product inconsistency didn't inspire confidence - so much so that I didn't even bother buying this palette, instead receiving it as a gift from a family member. I've now gotten a little bit of my faith in this brand back, and reach for this much more often then I do for PB&J...


The matte base/highlight shades are flattering to my skintone and super soft, though I prefer to use the base shade 'Creamed Honey' as a lid colour as it contains a few flecks of shimmer, and I don't like to use shimmer in highlight or base shades as my eyes are hooded. Much better selection of base shades in comparison to those in PB&J - two of those contain more shimmer, so I don't use those much and when I do it's not for their intended use.

The stars of the palette are the "Peanut Butter" selections; you get four tan/brown eyeshadows [one shimmer, one microglitter, and two mattes], in the Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar's extremely popular 'Peanut Butter' shade and three new coordinating warm-neutral shades. These four shadows are lovely shades, and apply, blend and wear really well. I don't really like microglitter, but this shadow has a lot less fallout in comparison to the microglitter shade in the Peanut Butter and Jelly palette, so I do wear it sometimes and am happy enough with it.

And then we come to the "And Honey" portion of the palette - if you have blue eyes, then you'll be thrilled with the two matte shades in peach and yellow, as they make your eyes pop. Same great quality as the shadows in the peanut shade selections, though as the shades themselves are light and soft, I'm concerned that people with depth to their skintone may struggle with getting the most from them, so I've removed a lippie as they limit the palette a bit in terms of ease of usability.


One quick whine? This palette [like the PB&J] is only sold in US Ulta stores, so the rest of the world has to pay more for this [shipping & import and custom taxes] then we'd pay for one of TooFaced's 16 pan palettes in store, when buying this one through the TooFaced site. Rather unfair to all of the brand's international fans when the PB&J proved to be extremely popular, so the brand knew this would be highly likely to be in high demand too.

So I bought this the other day after hearing mixed reviews. For since I can remember I've loved MAC Upward Lash, but this has converted me! Absolutely love Better Than Sex, really easy to apply and beautiful result. Couldn't recommend more!

Lipstick -Too Faced -Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick

foto

I have a few of these, and I think the colors are pretty and the formula is really wearable. Fuchsia can bleed a little bit, but the other colors I have (Nude, Peony, Berry, possibly another that I am forgetting) seem to stay in their proper place better. I like the spongey applicator on the tip, which surprised me because I thought I would hate it. It makes the application very comfortable, though it is not super precise. On the lips, these wear about the same as a traditional poured lipstick does on me, so if you're looking for longevity this might not be the product for you. I like that these lip colors are very pigmented and opaque yet not matte, and they feel really light on the lips. I doubt I would buy other shades of this product, but I will continue to use what I have, and I would possibly even repurchase Berry if I ever used it up.


Lipstick -Too Faced -Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick

This product is a nice lipstick option for those who don't like the traditional liquid lipsticks that can sometimes be drying. The Melted lipsticks are non drying and apply very smoothly. They are not as long wearing as other lipsticks but they do last a while. I like how this lipstick doesn't have a perfume or floral taste to it like some other lipsticks do. The colors are all beautiful and blend in to give your lips a pop. My more detailed review and swatches of many colors is below.






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

foto

I don't usually hate primers, but my goodness I hate this one. I got a deluxe sample as a 100 point perk from Sephora, so I used it a few times, and every time it was just all kinds of bad. First off, this stuff smells hella weird, like stale beer or something. Off-putting smells for face stuff don't always deter me completely though, as some truly funky smelling stuff still does its job well. This primer, however, did not do its job well at all. My skin is combo, but still manageable, but somehow this primer activated every single oil gland in my face, causing my foundation to slip off. I have tried all manner of face primers and have never had something like that happen. The icing on the cake was that it irritated my sensitive skin and gave me painful breakouts. I know some people love this product and swear by it, but it did nothing to make my skin look more alive or less dull (unless you consider super oily to be an improvement.) If you have sensitive skin or are prone to irritation, stay far, far away from this product.

Palettes -Too Faced -Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette

foto

What's not to love about this incredibly lush palette? I've not felt the need to review it as there's been a massive buzz over it since it's release. But, I just repurchased the chocolate bar and I've fallen for it all over again, so I thought I'd share the love! The colors are decadent; the powders so buttery soft and blend like a dream! As a new MUA I find this palette works on every person, young or mature, and every skin type/color. The mattes are smooth and pigmented and the shimmers literally melt onto the lid to give that soft glowy (not glittery) pop! This palette has been a huge investment, as you can create every seasonal trend out there with it. You can do a soft, dreamy summer bridal to a dark smokey, club look. I reach for it time and time again over all of my other palettes. I will most certainly continue to repurchase!

On a side note: I wish Too Faced would bring out a trio palette with Salted Caramel, Marzipan and Semi-Sweet. Hit pan on these three too quick, and I could use a couple of backups! 😄

Bronzers -Too Faced -Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer

on 7/8/2017 11:19:00 PM

I absolutely love the scent and the packaging of this product. I feel so good and happy when using this. The product itself is great also. I use the Dark Chocolate shade which is a nice fit for my tanned Asian skin tone (I am a Warm Beige in the Born This Way foundation). It lasts all day and it doesn't look orangey or muddy on me. I love this and will definitely repurchase but a little goes a long way with this so this will definitely last me a long time! Worth the money!

Only downside is that it isn't the best colour for contouring. As a bronzer, it gives you the perfect sun-kissed look, but for contouring it's not neutral enough and is slightly orange. I have tried to contour with this and it just doesn't fit. But that's alright because it's not meant to be a contour product anyway.

Mascara -Too Faced -Better Than Sex Mascara

So much hype around this product and I personally just couldn't understand why. Don't get me wrong, it was a nice mascara, but it just didn't live up to my expectations which was disappointing, especially considering the price.

It lengthened and volumized my lashes and didn't flake or anything throughout the day, but I would need to apply about 3 layers just to achieve the same effect as only 1 layer of Benefit's Roller Lash or even Maybelline's Lash Sensational. It also doesn't really provide much lift or curl. I much prefer those latter mascaras over this. I'm really glad I only bought the mini version instead of the full size. It's an okay mascara but there are better options out there and for the price that it is, I won't be repurchasing this.


Foundations -Too Faced -Born This Way Foundation

Hands down the best foundation I've ever used. It does not look cakey at all, lasts all day, did not oxidise on me, and it truly does give a natural born-this-way finish. I love love love the coconut scent of this and the shade Warm Beige is a perfect match for my Asian skin tone. I have received so many compliments when wearing this foundation. Even a stranger on the train asked me what foundation I was wearing because she really liked how it looked!

However, I have noticed it tends to melt around my nose after a few hours, but it doesn't bother me too much because everything else about this product is great.

I have oily skin so I set this with the MAC Blotting Powder and finish off with a spritz of Urban Decay's De-Slick setting spray to keep the foundation looking matte all day long.

Palettes -Too Faced -Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar

foto

I have tried for a long time to like this but every time I use it, it just does not look good on my eyes! I am extremely pale with blue eyes /blond hair and these shadows just have too much orange tones in them and it doesnt look good on me. These orange tones clash with my eyes and skin so they make my eyes look tired and sallow and gross! There are a couple cool shades in this but they are boring and this palette isnt worth $50 for only a few okish shades.

And dont even get me started on how disappointing the blue shade is...

I truely regret purchasing this!
