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

foto

I got this when on sale at Sephora (about $22). So far so good but firstly the cons - and there is only one: I love peach smells but this is a very artificial/chemical-smelling one and very strong at that! Literally hits my nose as soon as I open the palette. Luckily it doesn't last long. Now onto the (many) pros...

- Fallout is less than most other palettes I've used
- These shadows all have great pigment, blend very easily and the mattes are very creamy
- It's complete and very easy to achieve a full eye look using just this palette
- There's a good range of shades, from warm browns to dark browns, plum, pinks and peaches
- It's versatile - can be used for natural daytime looks as well as for more dramatic night looks
- Lasts me up to 12 hours when used with an eye shadow primer (Urban Decay primer Potion is a good choice)
- Beautiful packaging - comes with a big mirror, yet small compact case and a magnetic closure, perfect for travels!

Definitely a re-purchase for me.

Lipstick -Too Faced -The Sweet Smell of Christmas Christmas Treats Liquified Lipstick Set

So of course I can never resist another Too Faced palette so I purchased the Too Faced Gingerbread Spice Eyeshadow Palette. In addition, Too Faced was also selling this The Sweet Smell of Christmas Christmas Treats Liquified Lipstick Set which for some reason I felt I just HAD to have! This is a selection of 4 travel (mini?) sized Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick collection of four colors which include Pumpkin Spice, Sugar Cookie, Cinnamon Bear and Hot Buttered Rum. I feel like all 4 are worth it...however.....

I wish Cinnamon Bear smelled more like Cinnamon!!!!! Mine doesn't, although some of you might have a different sense of smell than I have.....the color is awesome, but I'm disappointed with the fragrance.

And though i LOVE the scent of the Hot Buttered Rum color, I wish it wasn't QUITE so yellowish in color!!!!

Other than that I find that the price points is acceptable and overall I can definitely see myself wearing these all during the Holiday 2018 season. LIKE!

Lipstick -Too Faced -Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick in Gingerbread Girl

on 9/22/2018 4:07:00 PM

Yes...Yes...YES!!!!! This is a must have in your collection if you A. Love Too Faced and if you B. Love Gingerbread anything!!!! I was lucky enough to pick up the Melted Matte liquid lipstick in Gingerbread Boy from Too Faced holiday collection in 2017 and I gravitated right to this Gingerbread Girl Melted Matte liquid lipstick they came out with for this holiday collection for 2018. Same fabulous texture and pigment, same fantastic wear and the scent is to die for. I'm still using my Gingerbread Boy Melted Matte liquid lipstick from a year ago with zero changes in fragrance or texture. I tried to find a great picture of this to post, but haven't been able to find an acceptable one. I'd describe this color as a deep reddish mauve and hope I'm doing this fantastic color justice by that description!

Overall, I'd say this is a definite must have if you're a fan of Too Face's Melted Matte liquid lipstick formula. It's deeper in pigment and
the color is fantastic. LOVE!!!!!


Palettes -Too Faced -White Chocolate Chip Palette

I’m hit or miss with this one. I really wish it was more pigmented (totally agree with the other reviewers). The only shade I really like is the black one, as I use it for my eyeliner.


Palettes -Too Faced -Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette

I bought this at Ulta during their 21 Days of Beauty sale. I’ve been quite impressed with the quality of the shadows. I like how smooth and matte they are—definitely different texture from the Urban Decay palettes. I’d say this one is my favorite and I’m loving this brand!


Liquid -Too Faced -Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation

on 9/22/2018 11:15:00 AM

This is one of my favorite foundations. This lasts all day on me, gives me very good coverage but not too full and thick. It feels comfortable on the skin. Comfort matte is right!!! The scent is mild and goes away in a few seconds after I apply. I use this in the shade Almond (i am nc20 in MaC).


Foundations -Too Faced -Born This Way Foundation

Nothing special about this at all. Doesn't last that long on the face. Not terrible but no longer than a drugstore foundation would. Nothing overly nice about the finish. It's just ok. If it was a cheap drugstore foundation I'd say fair enough but for £30 I think you could find something better. Sinks into fine lines a little too. Wouldn't repurchase but don't hate it.

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

on 9/21/2018 2:09:00 PM

Doesn't really do anything. It's basically a moisturiser and not a particularly good one. You'd be better spending the money on a decent moisturiser instead. Packaging is quite nice as most of Too Faced packaging is and the smell is nice. Overall it's just a bit meh. Wouldn't buy it again.


Mascara -Too Faced -Better Than Sex Mascara

foto

Mascara (and sex) shouldn’t take this much work. One coat looks like...well, like I haven’t applied any mascara. 5 or 6 and I’m getting a little volume and my lashes at least look black. But come on, this stuff is expensive and marketed as the best thing to hit the mascara market ever. It’s not. It’s mediocre.

Better than sex? This isn’t even better than a high five from a guy you like who only sees you as a friend.

Eyeliner -Too Faced -Glitter Pop! Peel-Off Eyeliner - Lucky Bitch

on 9/19/2018 10:48:00 AM

I LOVE this eyeliner. I love gold anything and will try any gold eyeliner, especially if it involves glitter. This one is by far my favorite I’ve ever used. The formula is great – it’s easy to apply and the glitter is dense and not chunky. It doesn’t bother my eyes at all (even when I get too close to the waterline or inner corner), and it doesn’t drop glitter all over my face. It really does peel off, but I usually just wash it off…when I’m taking the time to do gold glitter eyeliner, I’m usually not really picky about how I take off my makeup when I get home lol. I use this as a regular line, as an accent over black liquid liner, or – my favorite way – all over the lid. That look is mesmerizing and it gets a lot of attention. You do have to do a couple passes to get a solid line of gold glitter, but it’s not bad at all. It’s also fun to just draw all over your face with it.

Brows -Too Faced -Brow Quickie

on 9/19/2018 2:18:00 AM

foto

overall: 7.5/10

This is a great product, but I think it's too expensive for what it is. It's a brow gel with fibres, which you can use over another product or standalone for the feathery look (which is what I prefer to do). I have the lighter shade of the two. It holds my brows in place and adds a bit of volume, but not a lot. I don't think I would repurchase it, just because I prefer pencils and this product is >$30 in Australia.

I am a sucker for the peach scent, but these shades are unflattering for my skin and eye color. I will not purchase.


Eyeliner -Too Faced -Glitter Pop! Peel-Off Eyeliner - Kitty Glitter

on 9/18/2018 4:44:00 PM

I am in love with these glitter eyeliners from TF. They are AMAZING! I have all eight of the shades that are currently available, they are THAT GOOD.

Kitty Glitter just might be my favorite one. It's made up of super-bright fuchsia glitter with a sprinkling of holographic glitter throughout. So cute and fun! And the wear is phenomenal. Once it's applied and dried, this eyeliner isn't going anywhere. Zero glitter fallout, and that's without any primer or glitter glue or anything else. And on my oily lids!

When you're ready to take it off, it really does peel off in one piece. At first I thought this was just a gimmick, but now I see it's actually really practical. You can just wash this off just like any other eyeliner if you want to, but now you've got glitter particles moving around all over your face. These glitters aren't scratchy at all but they're still glitter. The peel-off aspect is probably a really good idea from a skincare point of view. And also if you mess up your application (which you probably won't because these apply so easily), you can just peel it off and try again. Great stuff!

I love Kitty Glitter, and I love the other shades too. Excellent product. If you're looking for a glitter eyeliner, this line is the best one out there IMO. Very highly recommended!!!
