Primer/ Corrector -Too Faced -Primed & Poreless Skin Smoothing Face Primer

This is awesome for my oily skin. Although it doesn’t hide my pores as well as other products I have used, it makes my makeup go on beautifully and wears great during the day.

Other primers that initially hide my pores better might give me a nice look the first hour or two, but after that it’s all downhill. This might not cover the pores as much, but it definitely does not bring negative attention to them as the day goes on (Revlon pore filling primer, I’m looking at you 😑).

Instead, this primer makes my foundation mix with my oils in such a flattering way. I look dewey NOT greasy/textured and that was a big problem I kept encountering with A LOT of primers. Basically, by it wearing so well on my skin my pores look less noticeable even if it isn’t “pore filling” - if that makes sense?

I am even doing a side by side battle with the Tatcha primer and they perform the same (at least on my skin). Win, win, win!

Concealers -Too Faced -Born This Way Concealer

If this is how people felt with the Tarte Shapetape - I finally get it. Holy grail concealer has been found!

I have been using Tarte Shapetape since it came out, but it was always a product I had to work with to make it work for my skin (look at the past review I wrote on it). After figuring out how to make it work, I gave it 5 lippies; however, after using THIS concealer it now comes in second place.

The Born This Way isn’t too drying on my undereyes. I have no issues applying it and I’m even able to use setting powder like a normal person again (I had to be careful with the Shapetape because I could go from smooth to cakey with a slip of the brush). Now I realize that it was way too dry for under my eyes which was what was giving me issues with all my other products.

I recommend this concealer times 100 especially if you ever struggled with Shapetape. Love this!

Liquid -Too Faced -Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation

on 8/20/2018 11:36:00 AM

My HG foundation! I'm on my third tube (Natural Beige) and I can't say enough about this foundation! It's fairly lightweight and though it's called comfort matte, I'd say the finish is more natural. It's blends easily, though you may want to work in sections as it does dry a bit fast. There's a faintly peachy smell when you first apply, but it quickly goes away once the foundation dries. The true selling point for me is that this foundation is completely transfer proof. After applying the foundation and taking a phone call, I noticed the screen was COMPLETELY free of any residue. Do yourself a favor and head to Sephora for a sample, you won't regret it!

Pros:
lightweight
natural finish
medium coverage
blends well
transfer proof
convenient pump dispenser

Cons:
lightly scented
shade range could be bigger
pricey

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

This is not the setting spray for me. It leaves my face looking very shiny which is not what I'm going for in the dog days of summer. Also does not make my makeup last longer, and I hate the coconut smell. Just expensive spray that does not work for my skin.

Perfect setting spray and best one I have ever used and I have tried many. I find that this pairs perfectly with the Hangover primer and both help my foundation/makeup stay on all day. I love also spritzing this during the day for a pick me up .... just gives my normal skin a lovely glow.

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

Excellent primer!!!!! Works perfectly on my normal skin and pairs well with my new favorite foundation (Beauty Blender's Bounce Whip.) I do not find this primer drying as I do many others and it helps my foundation stay on all day. Love using this and then setting my face with the Hangover's Setting Spray .... perfect combination.

Primer/ Corrector -Too Faced -Primed & Peachy Cooling Matte Skin Perfecting Primer

on 8/17/2018 7:07:00 AM

I normally use the Too Faced Hangover RX primer, which I love and have repurchased, but received a deluxe sample of this to try with points at Sephora. I wanted to give it a try, but didn't want to commit to the full size. They are two very different products, that's for sure. Hangover is more of a lotion consistency, and the consistency and texture of this reminds me more of Benefit's Porefessional, which I don't care for. It's not exactly like that, but similar. I found I had to use more of this than the Hangover, as it doesn't spread as easily, nor go as far. It does have a bit of a blurring effect, that is very nice. It leaves my face feeling smooth after application. I think there is some oil control, but probably not enough if you are super oily. I felt like my makeup, especially my undereye concealer, didn't apply as nicely with this primer. Just too much drag, not as smooth. Maybe if I played and tried a few more of my foundations, I would find some that this worked better with, but since it is just a sample size, I didn't have that much to play with.

I think for someone who is looking for a more traditional primer, they would like this more than the Hangover RX primer. I see the complaint about that one is that it seems like more of a moisturizer and not so much like a primer, and that is somewhat true. For me, this isn't the right product; I don't think it's necessarily a bad product, but it is not for me.

Lip Gloss -Too Faced -Sweet Peach Creamy Lip Oil

on 8/16/2018 3:06:00 AM

I have this in Papa Don't Peach and let me tell you, it smells like heaven! It smells better than the Sweet Peach palette, which already smells quite good. It tastes delicious too if it gets inside your mouth.

The color is pretty opaque for a gloss, and is very comfortable to wear. Papa Don't Peach is a more pinky neutral shade that I find extremely flattering on myself. It's shiny, but not the shiniest gloss ever. It's moisturizing and long-lasting. Basically, I love it.

Concealers -Too Faced -Born This Way Super Coverage Multi-Use Sculpting Concealer

on 8/15/2018 2:09:00 PM

I have shape tape, effercernes, maquicomplete, Mac Pro longwear concealer, It concealer, Cle de Peau concealer, Osmosis, BE serum concealer, Nars radiant, and probably more. These are just in my current use pile. If there is a new concealer I will try it because I have very bad undereye circles. I also have some pigmentation marks that I conceal so the concealer must be multi-purpose. Also If it's crease free I will do cartwheels. This concealer does what others have failed to do. Cover, conceal, highlight and do it without creasing!

I had a little trouble with the colors offered. I'm NC 20 so I tried light beige, medium beige, vanilla and some other light colors. I thought light beige was wrong but it turned out to be the one because the colors oxidize a little. Darker colors were too dark and vanilla and lower were white on me.

Amount in the tube is awesome and like a foundation so I can use this on all spots without worrying about the amount. And it is available at many stores. I've been using this for 3 weeks so I think I have used it long enough to have an opinion.

Lips -Too Faced -Lip Injection Glossy

on 8/14/2018 7:52:00 PM

I have decent sized lips but I enjoy a lip plumper for a little oomph since everything loses a little volume on the other side of 40. Spotted this at TJ Maxx for 4.99 in the shade 'Milkshake' and decided to try it out. I love the subtle color which looks nice and nude not frosty pale on my complexion. The plumping buzz is more subtle than my beloved Buxom, but it's nice enough to keep using it. The texture is decent without any annoying too-thick texture to deal with so I am pleased. I went back for more the next day and they were all gone. Guess I'm not the only one that saw the value and went for it. Interested in other colors now.

Concealers -Too Faced -Born This Way Super Coverage Multi-Use Sculpting Concealer

I absolutely love it. I hate shape tape. I bought this in Swan and use it as foundation as well. It covers everything, doesn't sweat off and doesn't crease (I do set my under-eye area). Now, I've only been using this for about two weeks because prior to this I was using the Seam concealer which is a Korean brand. It has spf in it. I love that one too, but the tube is so small compared to this.

Mascara -Too Faced -Better Than Sex Mascara

foto

I purchased this mascara on ebay for a very low, decent price. It was one mascara I wanted to try, but was reluctant due to the actual price. I truly can't understand how this mascara got it's name, "better than sex." If that's the case, it's the worst "sex" imagineable, well, at least for me. This mascara was super messy, difficult to apply, and when it dried, it flaked. It looked terrible! I'm glad I did not pay full price. I will not repurchase. Seriously, L'oreal double end mascaras are much, much, better. Some of these high end brands really disappoint me. This was one of them. I'd also like to add that whoever gave this mascara it's name has a lot of nerve! :(


Lipstick -Too Faced -La Creme Mystical Effects Lipstick - Mermaid Tears

on 8/13/2018 6:04:00 PM

Beautiful! This is one of my very favorite lipsticks. From their Life's a Festival Collection, TF's Mermaid Tears is a shimmery, near-metallic, color-shifty lilac with a perfectly creamy texture. It's a little bit outside my comfort zone, but I'm glad I gave it a chance. This shade is just gorgeous!

No complaints regarding the staying power either. I don't feel like I have to reapply this a million times a day.

Great product overall and I'd definitely buy it again!

Lipstick -Too Faced -Natural Nudes

on 8/11/2018 7:21:00 PM

The Too Faced Natural Nudes lipstick is a collection of nude lipsticks. They are creamy "intensely coloured" bullet lipsticks that are infused with coconut butter to help hydrate the lips. They retail for $26.00 Canadian!

I am reviewing the shade Pout About It. Pout About It is a lovely warm rosy brown shade. It isn't a nude on my complexion but it is a beautiful colour nonetheless. It is definitely more brown than it is rose, at least on me. I am on the fairer side (Nars Sibera in the winter is my match although I do have a smidge of a tan right now!) to help give some context.

The formula of this lipstick is one I really enjoy. It's creamy but it's not slippery - the lipstick isn't going to give you a glossy look. There is a bit of a pull if you're applying it onto dry lips but it's not as intense as it would be if you were putting on a traditional matte bullet lipstick. It is moisturizing and very comfortable to wear, at least for me. The lipstick does have a scent to it. The website claims it is a coconut scent however I don't believe it's a *true* coconut scent. I personally don't mind the scent and I can't smell it once it's been applied. As for the intense colour claim - I think it's true! I can't say if that goes for every shade in the range but at least with Pout About It I found it was consistently pigmented and completely covered up my natural lip colour. I also find this formula has no issue playing with other products making it easy to layer/blend colours together if I want it to look slightly rosier or tone down a brighter pink shade.

I think the packaging of these lipsticks are adorable. The lid and tube of the lipstick are the same colour as the product itself and there is a pretty lace detail pattern around it. The bottom of it is a shiny gold with the Too Faced logo and as a whole it just has a very pretty aesthetic. I am a really big fan of the lipstick colour matching the outside of the tube because that makes it easier to identify the colour since the packaging is completely opaque.

I would definitely buy this again! I would also love to try some of the other shades in the collection.

I don't understand all the positive reviews either, I used this as a setting spray on my dry skin and I found it tacky and it smells like old coconuts. Cute bottle but did not notice any benefits while using this spray. I used it all up but I would not repurchase this again.
