Mascara -Too Faced -Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara

It keeps the lashes soft but falls the next minute I apply it all over the eyes and the face I took the waterproof because they have told me that , but it is impossible to wear. Very expensive and very disappointing. Won't buy it again for sure...

Update: after using it some times, I came up to rhw conclution that if i put it only to my upper lashes it doesn't smatZ. But still...too expensive for the result...

Powder -Too Faced -Primed and Poreless Pressed Powder

on 7/27/2018 7:06:00 PM

Was so excited to buy this. THEN I drop it out of my hand and onto a table within two weeks of owning it and half the product is instantly lost. It shatters on the slightest impact and there's no going back. Which is annoying because there's not much product to begin with.

I frequently have to top this up during the day as it either vanishes or makes my skin really obviously dry and patchy looking. Wouldn't repurchase or recommend.

Palettes -Too Faced -Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar

on 7/27/2018 1:40:00 PM

I really love this palette and I found it at Marshalls recently for $25 fyi.

I'm not going to go into too many details because there are a lot of reviews all over the internet, but the reason this is my new go-to is because the formula barely has any visible texture on eyelids. Yes, there is some fallout, especially with the shimmery shades, but most of the shadows are pigmented, buttery, and blend very easily and smoothly. They just go on like a perfect cloud of pigment onto your skin. I find they last all day with primer. This palette leans warm-ish but overall it's neutral enough, a plus in my book. As with any palette, there are obviously some shades I don't really wear (black, glittery pink), but I've found uses for 80% of them. It's an amazing formula for non-18-year-old eyelids.

Palettes -Too Faced -Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar

The Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar is currently my go-to palette, and is my favourite Chocolate Bar so far - an unpopular opinion I know! It has a great variety of neutral shades with a few pops of color (the blue Blueberry Swirl and the pastel glittery Pink Sugar). The base shades, Coconut Creme and Butter Pecan are amazing. The matters are great quality, my favourite being Peanut Butter and I love the shimmers too, especially Rum Raisin and Caramel. All the shadows are soft and have little fallout. They are well pigmented and blendable - very easy to work with. This is a great palette for beginners! It has the famous chocolate scent which is lovely. The palette is quite sturdy, made of metal and has a magnetic closure. It is quite an expensive palette, especially in Australia but I love it and have used it constantly since purchasing it. I highly recommend it!

i have INCREDIBLY dry lips, it’s like the sahara over here, and these strike the balance between long lasting and hydrating perfectly. maybe they don’t last as long as other liquid lipsticks, but they’ve never made my lips hurt and that’s more important to me. i take a lippie off for the awkward shaped packaging that doesn’t fit in my lipstick holders

WOW! Really good mascara. My lashes look longer and more prominent when I use this. I was really impressed and would definitely repurchase.

Two minor negatives :
1- Can get a bit clumpy so just make sure to scrape off excess mascara from the applicator, I usually do this on the mouth of the tube and then its fine.

2- After wearing it for a long time ( 5-6 hours or more) it can start to flake and have fallout on the under eye. Not disastrous but a little annoying.


Foundations -Too Faced -Born This Way Foundation

I wouldn’t say that this foundation is bad, BUT! I loved its formula, I loved its coverage and how it feels like nothing on skin(this foundation is medium to full coverage), it’s just that I got oily pretty quickly. So I like to take my pressed powder with me.. I will highly recommend it for people with dry skin.

This reminds me a lot of the Shape Tape but I think I like this better, because the shade range is far more suitable towards my deep golden skintone and because the formula isn't as dry. I wear Medium Golden - Sand and it's perfect for my undereyes as well as the demarcation lines around my mouth. It isn't ashy at all, conceals well and layers well too! It's a touch hydrating which is great for my undereyes, especially when I set it because the finish is perfect. The only thing is I won't use it to brighten the middle of my nose anymore because that hydration factor that's so great for my undereyes is not so great for my oily nose!  But all in all, I've finally foung my OG concealer and as an added bonus, you get quite a bit of product in some really lovely packaging. I will repurchase again and again!

Lipstick -Too Faced -Melted Matte Liquified Long Wear Matte Lipstick

i WISH i could love this. the color (i have a dark mulberry shade) is beautiful, but i can't figure out how to get it to last without being terribly drying yet never actually fully drying down. it fades in the middle part of my lips, leaving me with a reverse-liner look even when i've exfoliated/lined/prepped extensively and waited half an hour to drink again. sigh. lovely packaging.

Lipstick -Too Faced -Melted Matte Liquified Long Wear Matte Lipstick

PROS:
• No transfer
• Wide color range
• Long wearing, no smudging
• Full pigmentation in one layer
• They never get crumbly
• Pretty comfortable
• Nice scent
• Beautiful packaging
• Don't dry down to a darker shade than in the tube

CONS:
• Up there in price

Overall, 9/10. Definitely in my top 3 liquid lipstick formulas. This formula is perfect, I don't find it drying at all and it NEVER gets flaky which is quite a rare find in a transfer-proof liquid lipstick. I have 3 shades (Child Star, Cool Girl and Lady Balls). I would definitely recommend this product.

Finally I managed to get round to using this last night and seeing for myself what the hype was all about (I have 2 friends who it seems to work great for). My lashes themselves are long thanks to a serum I use, however I wouldn't mind some definition, hence the Too Faced purchase which I got online for $24. Although this went on quite well and just required one coat, it did start to both clump immediately and then flake in a matter of hours. The flaking eventually got so bad that I had to remove it all together. I thought maybe my serum might have caused that, even though it had been 12 hours since applying it the previous night. But nope, same problem happened again.

I think there are some products which agree perfectly with some people and are the bane of other people's lives. Judging from the reviews this seems to be one of them!

Bronzers -Too Faced -Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer

on 7/21/2018 7:42:00 AM

I am not a big fan of bronzers. They generally don't look very natural on me whether I use them for contouring (my round face could do with some but it always looks peculiar) or to add a bit of colour to my pale face in summer. But I had a points perk little compact of this and decided to give it a try and, to my surprise, I really like it. It works well to darken my throat a bit so it matches my face (matching my face to my neck would have me looking like a sheet of printer paper!). And if I use a large, fluffy powder brush to dust this all over my face, it does give nice, natural colour to my skin and makes me look healthy rather than orange or artificial. I wouldn't hesitate to buy the full size of this bronzer and that is high praise coming from someone like me, who generally avoids them.

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

Anyone else think Too Faced has been meh the past few years or so? Especially lacking in the complexion department with their garbage Born This Way foundation and mediocre Peach foundation. I saw good reviews for this concealer when I was in the market for a new one after Tarte Shape Tape ran out which to be quite honest, was good but not amazing for me to repurchase.

I was able to find my shade easily and can even get away with a few of them (although I wish it was more neutral like Shape Tape offers but I can make it work). I ended up with nude because I wanted it to be light enough to brighten but not too light that I can’t wear it on its own.

Packaging - the wand is HUGE so if you’re one of those people who applies the triangles under your eyes after your foundation, you might want to go easy or you’ll be blending this down your cheeks. I prefer to wear this under foundation.

Speaking of blendability - so easy to work with and spreads like a dream but might take a little bit more time with a brush. I find the best application technique is a combination of patting and lightly swiping. This concealer is meant to be blended, not pressed into the skin. The consistency a lot thinner and less drying than Tarte ST.

Coverage - gorgeous, natural luminous finish. For something so natural, it sure packs a punch as this is the highest coverage, non-caking concealer I’ve ever used. Heck, it even covered my huge sun spot which no other concealer or even FOUNDATION has ever done in the 8 year history of me wearing makeup. Toss the Shape Tape, toss the Prolongwear, toss the KVD, and GET THIS.

I’m planning to get the next shade up so I can use it all over the face on days I don’t feel like wearing foundation. If after you try this and you feel like doing the same, just a warning it won’t last all day as an all over coverage but as a concealer YASSSSS.

Terrific -- what I expected Shape Tape to be. But this is more moisturizing, yet doesn't crease on me if I set it lightly with my small duo fiber brush and lightweigt powder (Hourglass Ethereal, W3l lPeople, MAC Extra Dimension Highlighter). I ordered it before it was in stores, and lucked out with Vanilla. I considered trading it in -- it's a tad yellow and I'd rather go pink than yellow, but the site describes it as Neutral. And it's fine, the color.

Great coverage, easy to apply, really a great find! There's another listing ere for Too Faced Concealer, which is their other one. This one is the one with the long name and extra words. i wonder how long they yanked around "Sculpting."

Highly recommended.

I just want to point out that there are DIFFERENT Too Faced Concealers, both named "Born This Way" (great, TF). There is an entirely different listing for the Newer super coverage sculpting one. Which I adore -- and I'm 62! If it covers and doesn't crease on ME, I can't imagine it doing so on younger buyers. I do set it with a small due-fiber brush and the lightest powder I have on hand. But then I am good for the rest of the day.

I know everyone's experience and skin is different, but some of these reviews, I feel, are about an entirely different product. This is just now in stores this week -- the end of July 2018.
