Foundations -Too Faced -Born This Way Foundation

Shade: Ivory (close to NC15)

I really do not like this foundation. I think how well this goes on your face is too dependent on your primer. There's quite some debate online about whether this is a water based or silicone based primer. But regardless, I have found that it looks absolutely like shit when I apply this over a silicone-based primer like the Maybelline Baby Skin primer. I've found that over a silicone-based primer it never really sets, and it just slides around. Applying powder on does not help. I don't normally deal with patchiness from foundation, but somehow this foundation manages to really just cake up in the most random places, and at the end of the day, it starts falling apart on areas around my mouth.

However this does apply normally with a primer like the L'oreal magic lumi primer (which looks to be a water-based primer). It looks beautiful upon initial application with a water based primer. But, there's a huge issue with this breaking down around my mouth. It just looks awful, and it's embarrassing if anyone sees me up close.

Overall, not a fan. I like my silicone primers too much. Also, regardless of which type of primer I use, the staying power isn't very good especially if you're someone who touches your face often, or if you like to take naps with makeup on.


Eye Shadow -Too Faced -Chocolate Bar

Absolutely beautiful pallete! Bought this for my mum as a gift, and she loved it. I did use it once or twice when we went on holiday together and the shadows are great! Good variety of mattes and shimmers. There's a beautiful pearly kind of shimmer and a deep teal which I literally fell in love with! (amongst others) Packaging and the palette itself were also beautiful. Nice touch that the shadows smell like chocolate too


Highlighters -Too Faced -Candlelight Glow duo

Gorgeous highlighters!
I'm very fair and both of these looked great on my skin tone, whether I mixed them or applied only the pearl or pinky shade. The packaging as with anything Too Faced is also beautiful and it has a handy little mirror inside it.

This foundation has a glow, does not look cakey. Covers pores and any of my imperfectipns. The cons are: its not long wearing and NOT kiss proof and NOT sex proof for sure!

Liquid -Too Faced -Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation

TEXTURED SKIN PEEPS: listen up. You need this. Nothing I've tried has ever covered my scarring and bumps more fully and more NATURALLY than this. I've tried EL Double Wear, Milk Blur Liquid Matte, PUR bare it all (which is a good one too), True Match, and many others.
This runs DARK: get a shade way lighter than you think you need. I am Mac NC 30, and my color is "light beige" in this, which on the website, looks way too light.
This foundation is so worth the shading issue though. It dries down to a matte, soft, skin-like finish that stays that way all day long. I don't use a primer or even powder this at all. The coverage I would say is medium, but builds (I've never found a foundation that builds nicely on me other than this) to full coverage.
And it smells nice! Not like a fragrance- this didn't irritate my extremely redness prone skin.

Palettes -Too Faced -Natural Eyes

This is my traveling palette, because of the size/ sturdy packaging. The overall effect is disappointing, though. You can't pull off more than two looks with this palette, so in terms of versatility, there's practically none. I was satisfied with the shimmery shades except for the erotica which is one of the worst eyeshadows I've used (apart for plagiarized makeup), no pigmentation or ability to build at all. It's like sparkling dust!! The color nudie (in the big pan) is very light, practically non-existent on the lids. Almost identical to cashmere bunny in the smaller pan. This palette seriously lacks a good crease shade. Just very bland, non-verstaile, subdued, none of which I look for in a palette. And the price is a insane for the lack of quality you get! Thanks too faced, now I'll never try your costly Chocolate - bars - whatever-they're-called pallettes either:)

Primer/ Corrector -Too Faced -Hangover 3-in-1 Replenishing Primer and Setting Spray

on 10/29/2017 11:36:00 AM

I bought this solely for the glow that it gives the skin. I sprayed my faced with it while buying other things in ULTA. The mist was quite wet and I didn't look in the mirror while in the store. saw my glowing complexion once I got in my car. I bought it and I have to say it is my best beauty purchase in a long time. i am tempted to say of all time but that sounds a little dramatic. I consider it THAT good. as for the nozzle, that is not good. it comes out too wet and after a few days started coming out in a straight line. i fixed the problem by pouring it into an empty Mario Badescu spray bottle. perfectly fine mist now.

Liquid -Too Faced -Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation

Mother of all foundations, I thought we had a winner. I had never tried anything from Too Faced before so I bought this to see what the hype was. I am NC30 but not as yellow so Light Beige worked well for me. It wore comfortably and it stayed on for a good three-hour tour. A lot of people compare this with ELDW but for me ELDW belongs to its own genre. For my oily skin which is getting a bit weird while aging, this is supposed to be a good foundation but unfortunately it won’t stay on even using my clear NYX primer which virtually keeps everything on my face. What a shame! I really wanted this to be my HG. Back to Revlon Colorstay and Almay TLC.

I really wanted to love this foundation! When i first applied it it looked great until it started oxidizing! It ended up turning a weird muddy looking color about an hour into wearing it! It did make my skin look really good though! Blurred my pores and fine lines! So i tried mixing it with one of my favorite foundations so i wouldn't waste it. After about a week of wearing if the cysts began....very disappointed! Hopefully other's have better luck! Not very many foundations break me out but this one made me look like a 15 year old girl again! :(

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

on 10/27/2017 1:02:00 PM

This is my new favorite palette! I've been wearing these eye shadows almost daily since I bought the palette a few weeks ago. The colors are just so great for daytime and can also be darkened up for a nighttime look. My go-to colors are Peach Tea in the crease, Just Peachy all over the lid, Peach Tart in the outer-V, and one of the two lightest colors on the brow and inner corner, with Chocolate Dipped as a liner. Peach Punch and Peach Sangria are very vibrant and I love these for a nighttime look.

As far as formulation goes, these are the best mattes I've ever tried. I don't have a lot of mattes in my collection, but the ones I do have are very pigmented but very hard to blend, and don't last on the lid! These shadows are pigmented, blend easy and last and last... even without primer, which is how I usually wear them for daytime, at work. I've never tried mattes that blend this easily, so I am sold on Too Faced mattes now. I also bought the I Want Kandee palette at the same time and those shadows (both mattes & shimmers) are lovely, as well. The palettes really complement one another... I often use one of the shimmers in the Kandee palette with the Peachy mattes... either on the lid or on the brow/inner corner.

The packaging is very nice on this palette. The magnetic closure is great and the large mirror inside is very welcome. I wish the Kandee palette had a mirror in it! The gold accents with the peach cover is really pretty.

I only have two minor complaints. One is the scent... it's OK and doesn't linger on the lids, but I can see how it would be a turn-off for people who are sensitive to scents. Why is adding scent necessary for eye shadows? Second is that 2 of the colors feel too similar to me: Fresh Picked and Peach Cobbler. They have slightly more red in them than I would like. Fresh Picked has slightly more peach and Peach Cobbler a bit more brown. I much prefer Peach Tea, which leans more brown with none of the red. I wish they had done away with one of those other two maybe done a more peachy/pink-brown, with less red.

Overall, I love this palette and it will stay in my portable makeup bag for quite a while!

It broke me out soooo bad all over my face!! The fragrance might be the trigger.

If you have sensitive skin, be aware. Do a patch test please.

Bronzers -Too Faced -Beach Bunny Bronzer

on 10/27/2017 3:32:00 AM

Ran out of my Milk Chocolate Soliel so thought I'd try Beach Bunny due to the good reviews and wanted something with a bit of shine and not so matte for the upcoming Summer in NZ. I really regret my purchase :( This bronzer goes so patchy and blotchy on my skin and it's sooo orange. It also just doesn't last on my skin, I was horrified when I came home today and I had one patch of orange in the middle of my forehead and the rest had just vanished. The sheen I was looking for is there in this, but the colour and longevity does not make up for it. I personally do not like this bronzer and will be going back to my Milk Chocolate Soliel as I have never had those problems with that one.

Blush -Too Faced -Peach My Cheeks Melting Powder Blush - Peaches and Cream Collection

on 10/26/2017 11:33:00 PM

I purchase this colour in the peachy shade, LOVE It! It looks bright in the package but went on subtle and really nice. They do 'melt' on the cheek just like cream blush. I use my usual blush brush to apply this in light strokes and they just melt in nicely. Have a good few hours of office wear, I like that it has a nice slippage to it. The smell is like fuzzy peach and is actually quite nice! Package is really sweet and cute too. Even though thiis is not on the cheap side of blush price, but a little goes a long way.

This is actually a very good foundation. It's matte but yet looks and feels light when using a sponge. It's a bit heavier when using a brush. I just wish it had a better color range
