Wow what a great mascara, gives you long, thick and very black lashes, I don’t think you need false lashes with this mascara as it performs very well.
My lashes are fine and this mascara does so well to push them up.
It’s quite similar to the benefit their real but this one gives me more length and definition.


Liquid -Too Faced -Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation

This is one of my favorite foundations. Nice semi matte finish with medium coverage. Good oil control, it takes a while for my oils to break through when wearing it, especially when I set it with the Peach Perfect matte powder. I also love the scent. Will definitely repurchase.

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

foto

bought this because of the hype and its generous amount in the tube.
im in between shades for this, story of my life, however it does oxidize on me so i go a shade lighter and then im fine. i think im gold beige in this line, as my usual natural beige is too dark.

today is my first time wearing it and it has lasted.
i dont do the instagram concealer thing, just a few dots here and there and im covered.

the size &price of this is soo good. 15 ml (.5 fl.oz) for $29 USD.

i dont need to powder this on my combo-slightly oily summertime skin

I had wanted to try this foundation for years but somehow never did. I saw Jackie Aina released her shades in the extended line and it piqued my interest again. I went to Ulta bare faced and swatched 3 shades down my check, jaw and neck. The shade Snow was my match, which surprised me because it’s the 3rd lightest shade and I’m usually the 1st shade in all foundations. Snow is described as being formulated for fair skin with rosy undertones. I didn’t really have high expectations for this foundation (I stopped buying too faced complexion products when they discontinued the Absolutely Flawless concealer, the shade Vanilla was my ride or die.) I was blown away by the shade match of this foundation. This is my perfect, perfect match. I thought I already found my perfect match in a KVD foundation, but this actually matches me better. I use a squalane oil (very thin layer on my skin) and a natural matte primer underneath of the foundation. I have found that it applied nicely and evenly with a brush or sponge, although I do use less product with a brush. I’d say it’s a natural finish, which is what I have been looking for lately— matte foundation is becoming too much for certain parts of my face, it’s starting to settle or crack as I age. This doesn’t crack or get caked or overly oily. I still have to touch up, but I have found that with using the squalane oil, the foundation looks so much better on the skin. The coverage is about medium, you can def build it up, but I usually do not. I have acne scars (pits) on my cheeks and this doesn’t hide them but definitely doesn’t draw attention to those areas and makes them appears a bit softer. I’ve been using this for a bit now and I don’t plan on using anything else. I am will be repurchasing for sure.

I bought this foundation about a year ago. I am fair with cool undertones and the color Snow fits me very well. The older I get, the better my skin looks. It’s no longer oily and I don’t need or want much coverage. I see bad reviews here but I like this foundation better than most. It gives my skin a glowy, polished finish. My lifestyle is fairly casual and like a natural looking foundation. Born This Way fits the bill. The only down side is that I have some large pores and I can’t say it provides camouflage for that, but nothing does. I would definitely consider buying this again. The last reviewer said this foundation looks yellow to her, but on me it shows pink undertones.

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

on 7/8/2018 10:43:00 AM

I don't really understand the positive reviews, for me it did nothing much except make my skin feel tacky. I decided to switch from Urban Decay all Nighter to another setting spray because of the less favourable skin ingrediënt in it ; denatured alcohol. Too Faced feels refreshing at first and I like the coconut smell, it seemed to make my foundation go on a bit easier but it does get tacky so you have to work a bit more quickly. It does not work as a setting spray for me and it is not a fine mist but a mini waterfall that comes out, I would need to use the blowdryer for my hair again and this is not because I cannot aim...
Nope, unfortunately not a succes for me, went back to Urban Decay for now but always on the lookout for better products with skin friendly ingredients.

Loose Powders -Too Faced -Peach Perfect Loose Setting Powder

on 7/8/2018 8:47:00 AM

I love this powder. But I have sensitivities to certain perfumes and didn’t realize how much scent is in this. I use it to set my concealer around my eyes (which it’s perfect for) but have developed an allergic reaction in my eyes! I have tried discontinuing and it goes away, then using it again and it comes back. I was hoping I was wrong and it was something else because it is a very nice powder. It doesn’t settle into your fine lines around your eyes. They should really consider making their products unscented so everyone can use them. Guess I won’t be trying their chocolate eyeshadow palette like I had planned

The shade range is a joke here, everything is so yellow and there are no pink toned or Truely fair shades. Even swan is yellow.
I am glad to hear they are adding cloud to be a true fair pinked tone shade and several deep shades so I will repurchase cloud to try it.
The formula is hydrating and gel like but never sets down and will transfer. It just sets on skin instead of blending in..
It feels heavy on the skin but lays well over patches and is medium coverage
I am 0cr in Dior backstage, NW10 in Mac, hourglass vanish stick in alabastaer, br10 in YSL, 3.75 in luminous silk but 2 works too, the lightest shade in L’Oréal infallible pro glow, porcelain 0.5 in tom Ford, beige rose in Chanel, shade 1 in Charlotte tilbury, R230 in MUFE- If you are a similar pink toned shade do not go for swan or snow, wait for cloud because they will not match you.

So yellow, and they oxidise down more yellow.

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

This is one of my favorite lip products. I usually dislike wearing anything on my lips because I have to reapply throughout the day, haven't had to do that with this product. Goes on smoothly and stays on all day, just be careful eating oily food because it will come off. Doesn't dry my lips like other liquid lipsticks and doesn't feel cakey. Not bad for the price. Definitely my go to.

i have this in snow, and the color match is close (which is hard cause im ghostly pale) but, it just doesnt blend into the skin nicely. I think of this was a more radiant and glowy foundation i would like it more. As it is its more of a matte finish and it actually looks very bad on my nose. i wanted to like it. :(

So when this foundation came out I didn't give it a second thought since they didn't even bother making this in my color. However after severe backlash, they decided to expand their color selection and I thought "why not?" Surprisingly I REALLY like this foundation! Surprisingly because I prefer my foundation to be very matte with full coverage. Born This Way is the exact opposite. It gives you a slight dewy luminous look without looking greasy. It's lightweight and you can actually see your skin underneath. This foundation is excellent for those hot humid summer days and I suspect it will be good for the cooler months when you're not in the mood for that heavy flawless look.

I'm glad that Too Faced listened to their audience and expanded their color choices. It's 2018! No excuses for NOT having a diverse color selection.

Highlighters -Too Faced -Diamond Light Multi-Use Highlighter

on 7/4/2018 7:27:00 PM

This is my first Too Faced highlighter and I've really been enjoying it. It is the most expensive highlighter I currently own, ringing in at $42 Canadian.

The packaging was the first thing that drew me into this product. A part of me wishes the packaging was something sturdier/more elegant than cardboard given how it's designed to look but the packaging is adorable nonetheless. I love taking it out of it's fancy box and opening it up every time I wear it, it makes me feel like a princess.

In pan it's a beautiful highlighter to look at. It has a very pretty almost marbled look to it where you can see the different variants in colour and the way it was molded/engraved makes it look like a big diamond which I like! The highlight itself is dense/hard in pan, if that makes sense. I can easily pick up product on my finger or on a brush without there being kick up or crumbly powder left behind. It is easy to build it up for a more intense highlight however I am generally happy with just one or two swipes!

The website says that as you use the highlight or depending on where you take the highlight from the colour may vary. So far the highlight has always come off cool toned leaning blue for me. I love how it looks applied. Very glowy but not glittery and it doesn't emphasize any texture on my skin. It also lasts quite a few hours which I really appreciate.

I don't know if I'll repurchase it due to how expensive it is, plus I feel like it it will last me quite a while!

Eye Shadow -Too Faced -Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette

on 7/4/2018 7:10:00 PM

I am reviewing the original Chocolate Bar palette, not the semi sweet one!

I personally love this palette, but I completely understand why not everybody does. That being said, I likely won't repurchase it as it is expensive ($59 Canadian) and I feel like by the time I hit pan I'll be tired of the palette.

Pros: I think it smells delightful and the scent of it cheers me up whenever I use it.
The packaging is sturdy, I'm not afraid of this palette popping open if I travel with it.
The mattes are soft and blendable as are most of the shimmery shadows.
Save for Candied Violet the metallics/shimmers/frosted shadows applied beautifully, even prettier if spritzed with water!
It is incredibly easy for me to create a quick neutral eye look using just this palette.
The shadows are all named, which I appreciate!

Cons: The mirror on this palette is laughable, in my opinion. I wish they would get rid of the text and make the mirror itself larger. As it stands I use a separate mirror to do my eye makeup.
I wish that the shadows White Chocolate and Champagne Truffle had the same pan size as the other shadows. That would free up space for another two shadows!
Cherry Cordial is a shadow I have mixed feelings about. The colour in pan is beautiful but I really wish it was either completely matte or a metallic finish. It's an odd hybrid shade where it's mostly matte but there are sparkles placed throughout it.
Candied Violet is a mess and needs to be reformulated or simply taken out.
Haute Chocolate and Hazelnut are a little too similar for my tastes, one is every so slightly warmer. In my opinion the palette didn't need both shadows.

There is a *lot* of browns in this palette which makes sense given the name. If brown shadows aren't your jam then I wouldn't recommend the palette for you. If you want a palette for quick and easy neutral eye looks this one will certainly get the job done!

Clumpy, crumbly mess :(

The first time I used it, I was impressed. It did really elongate my lashes. My lashes still felt soft and I thought this could be a hit. Unfortunately it did come off in flakes shortly after application. I could not work with it and finally, it landed in the bin. Such a shame. I tried to give it to my sister, but she wasn't impressed either.
