Eyeliner -Too Faced -Glitter Pop! Peel-Off Eyeliner - I'm Half Mermaid

First off, as an avid festival-goer and raver I am LOVING all the releases of colorful and sparkly makeup. It's mostly the prestige brands putting out magical-themed collections but usually I buy a few things and love on them until they wear out.

ULTA sent me a $10 off anything (ANYTHING?!) card, and though initially I was looking for the Life's A Festival Palette, I settled on this liner. Anyone who has been personally victimized by glitter (it is the herpes of the crafts world after all) knows that it gets EVERYWHERE, so after seeing "peel-off" on the box, I had to try. I was really torn between I'm Half Mermaid, the hot fuschia one, and the baby lavender one - but told myself, GO BOLD, BUY THE BLUE ONE!!! (It'a actually teal.)

This is so opaque with TONS of glitter and glides on so nicely. It's not a flimsy glitter liner I'll tell you that for sure. There's also a generous amount of liner in each tube (like it should've been a lipstick tube or something) that it seems like I'm gonna have a hard time using up my first tube! I took off one star because it did lift up on the edge of my eyes already in the first few minutes but holymoly it is gorgeous and functional and I'm so excited to wear this to Las Vegas and all over the summer months!

I'll probably pick up other shades once the holidays kick in, because this is just a beautiful and cool concept altogether.

EDIT 5/25/18: Highly recommend applying this to bare eyes - just don't use this over eyeshadow priner which alters how it sets into a peel-off strip. On clean skin, it peels off in one clean strip with your fingers. Over primer, it sticks and tears off in goopy pieces - I think the formula bonds with the primer which makes it difficult to take off unless you have a makeup wipe handy.

Palettes -Too Faced -Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Collection Palette

I love love LOVE the colour selection, the pigmentation was decent but I had a bad allergic reaction to this and can't use mine anymore. So if you have sensitive eyes, you might wanna approach this palette carefully. It's such a pity, since the colours are so beautiful and work for day and night looks.

I can't say it is a bad primer, but I have a couple far superior to this one, like the Laura mercier one..This one goes on light, almost invisible..not sure it makes any difference on my skin really..or if my foundation looks any better..for the price, you can find better i think..

Palettes -Too Faced -Cat Eyes Palette

I have a few TF palettes (choc bar, bonbons, semi-sweet; peanut butter jelly, Natural love palette w 30 shades, Peach & this) so ive got like ~100 or so TF colors I reckon & not a dud in them. This palette is my fave out of them bcoz I love cat eyes & u can wet the right side colors to make them into powder eyeliner how kewl is that?! Mine was missing its brush but I got it for $13 off Ebay but the look card is kind of useless bcoz the shadows are arranged w how ur sup to use them basically. I love these colors esp how the lid color are bigger more product nice! I have grey eyes & this brings them out! I will definitely be buying more 9 pans esp if I can get them for $13 (yes it’s real it’s supposedly got a couple of dings but it looks perfect to me except missing brush.) normally these are $36 I would not buy them for that but $13 bring them on! I love Ebay. #uberwinning grade: A- (need liquid to wet liners so not very portable I like to use MAC fix + w it).


Mascara -Too Faced -Better Than Sex Mascara

I wanted to love this frosty pink packaged baby so much.. but it is one of the worst mascaras I tried. I can somehow deal with the big brush, but this flakes like crazy, leaving my cheeks speckled with black particles from the mascara an hour after application. It doesn't perform well in holding the curl either and instead of coating the lashes to increase volume, it just sticks them together and gives off this spider leg effect despite wiping the brush off before application. So sadly, I will have to give this only 1 lippy.

This product is hit or miss for me. Sometimes when I apply this I get a really nice finish and then other times I feel like it makes my foundation look grey. Do not ask me how. I feel like the texture is to sticky and sometimes making it hard to blend with my foundations. I rather use lorac pore minimizer primer.

So i Had high hopes for this since I love Better then sex mascara. Pros of this product is that it does give you volume to your eyelashes but I used this for a week and I do not know if it is the formula but I saw blurry. I thought something was wrong with my eyes it self. But this products seems to flake so bad and crustily lol if thats even a word to the point it blurs your vision. I would not purchase this again and I had high hopes for it. Save your money and go with Better then sex. It has been my holy grail for a couple of years and I will not be fooled into buying another.

Foundations -Too Faced -Born This Way Foundation

this was meant to be a perfect match for my skin tone and type. it is neither. i would not suggest this foundation for anyone that has sensitive, reactive, hormonal skin nor would i suggest it for pale complexions due to the choice in undertone pigments (and i generally use yellow toned foundations but this stuff was big bird level. just no.)

the foundation irritated my face so much i had to wash it off after an hour. in the hour that it was on it looked very artificial; no amount of careful application or blending made any difference. left an absolute ton of comedones on my face.

it photographs beautifully. if you have tolerant skin and take a lot of pictures of yourself this foundation is probably fantastic for the price - you do seem to get a fair amount of product for the money.

while I love the lenght and volume this mascara gives my lashes, I do think it makes them quite clumpy. I just brush through them with a spoolie after applying the mascara so it looks just fine!

Palettes -Too Faced -Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Collection Palette

The Sweet Peach palette contains 18 powder eyeshadows; White Peach (matte vanilla cream), Luscious (pearl peach champagne), Just Peachy (shimmering peachy pink), Bless Her Heart (golden moss), Tempting (bronzed black), Charmed, I'm Sure (matte medium cool brown), Nectar (pearly peachy cream), Cobbler (peachy pinked bronze), Candied Peach (matte coral with violet shimmer), Bellini (gilded peach), Peach Pit (satin perfect raisin), Delectable (matte smoky amethyst), Peaches 'n Cream (matte milky peach), Georgia (matte peachy pink), Carmelized (dark gilded bronze), Puree (metallic dark bronze), Summer Yum (matte gingerbread), Talk Derby To Me (shimmering black violet) .

This is tricky to review as it's not bad, just something I think is unnecessary. On one hand the shadow quality is excellent on all but one of the shades (Delectable is a bit patchy & needs building up), the shades are very wearable and the packaging is awesome. But on the other hand, there isn't anything here that hasn't been done before many other times, so if you have a few palettes already then you already have very similar shades to what's on offer here. If you are looking for a attractive gift for someone who like more neutral tones then I think that Sweet Peach is worth the splurge as the formula quality is great and the palette itself is cute, but I don't think this is a must-own palette for those of us who already own, ahem, a 'few' eyeshadow palettes, as there is nothing unique on offer.

So yeah; all in all this palette falls onto the ho-hum side for me, especially as the shades look different in real life compared to how they appeared on screen = it turns out that there are only two straight forward peach toned shades in the peach themed palette [Candied Peach & Bellini], as the pink or cream undertones on the other 'peach' shades dilutes them too much for the peach tones to show up on my skintone. I've gone to four lippies as I'll continue to use the palette, as it's easy to apply the shadows and they wear well, but next time I purge my eyeshadow collection this palette will be going as I think that the colour picks are pretty "blah" as they're all overdone. Too Faced's site/sephora exclusive peach themed palettes are awesome quality and uniqueness-wise, so I'd recommend trying them and leaving this one.


Lipstick -Too Faced -Peach Kiss Matte Lipstick

This lipstick has renewed my faith in lipstick and also, it has taught me what I exactly like in terms of lip products. It has a beautiful packaging that looks and feels luxurious and fun. The Lipsticks smell like peaches but it goes away and I don't smell it after applied. The collection has a nice variety of color but I honestly wish the would add more because I love the formula, lasting power and look and feel of it. All colors are a variation of a peach which I really like as an idea: from neutral to purple and not just a "peachy" shade. The lipstick acts as a stain and last for at least 6 hrs. On me while eating and/or drinking. I have bought 8 of the 20 colors available and I'm planning on getting back-ups just in case they decide to discontinue them.

Lipstick -Too Faced -La Crème Mystical Effects Lipstick "Unicorn Tears"

on 4/24/2018 12:30:00 AM

Little pricey for what it was.
I love mood lipgloss and lipsticks - I had toofaced's mood lip glosses about 8 or so years ago and they were sticky but fun.
I have Angel Tears and Unicorn Tears lipstick and they both perform the same: blotchy and uneven. Even when I pre-moisturise my lips, it goes on very uneven: heavy blobs of colour then streaks of sheer undercoat.
I was miffed at how much I spent on it to get such a poor performance.
I gave the Unicorn one away, and kept the angel one out of buyer's remorse.
I've seen a lot of reviews where people complain of blotchy coverage, yet others don't seem to have the issue.
Be wary - you won't know which way it falls on you till you wear it.

I love this thing. Simple, easy shadows and colours and I have to say it’s a win. I love the smell, and it’s something you can easily wear everyday! Purples are its only downfall (not as blendable or pigmented as I expect from a $60 shadow palette)!
