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

I so love this lipstick. I have this in 3shades, QueenB is my absolute fave. It is a beautiful mauvey purple that is not overpowering. It does not dry my lips and feels really comfortable. It is pretty long wearing in terms of liquid lippies, but I really do not mind a little retouch after eating or a few hours. I also have this in the shades Sellout (a brownish terracota shade on me) and Unicorn (a gorgeous bright violet). Unicorn is so pretty on days I want a bold lip.

I think I have finally found my HG foundation! I have super oily skin and texture. Alot of long wear foundations look too cakey or don't hold up, even with a primer. Bottom line, this gem does everything it claims. It does an awesome job controlling my oil and really is transfer resistant. I talked on my cell for over an hour and there was NOTHING on my phone! Also, for $36 , you get 1.6 fl, which is a lot more than the standard 1.0 fl oz. It is easy to apply and blend. It doesn't look like you are wearing makeup.

The only minor negative is the shade. It tends to run dark. I bought the shade Nude. I think its a tiny bit too yellow, but its not bad enough that I'm embarrassed. Great job with this one Too Faced. Highly recommend for oily skinned people

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

A matte version of the highly popular Sweet Peach palette. Less peachy in fragrance, by the way, in case it bothers you that the original peach palette is strongly fragranced. Likewise, there is no SACCHARINE in the palette so you don't get that sweet taste from the dusting up as you apply the shadows (notice that with the Peach Palette? Kinda weird.) You get twelve all matte shadows from cream to dark burgundy brown. It more or less works like the Kylie Burgundy palette but without any shimmer shadows.

I find that in a way, I get a better eye than from the Sweet Peach palette, more color payoff. Yet I don't get a good eye look unless I work hard at it. But there are a few colors that are essential, such as the Peach Tea, a warm gold peach and the Fresh Picked, an orangey peach. Peach Tea is a great transition shade for the crease, those golden warm shadows work well (like Peanut Butter from the Chocolate palette.) Orange shadow is said to brighten the eye and give you some warmth and life, so Fresh Picked is a useful shadow. These colors make my green eyes look very green (green absorbes reddish light and reflects green, so my eyes, which are a dark mossy green get a lot brighter.)

Of the two palettes, I'd say unless you must have shimmers, this is the better choice.

The packaging is a heavy metal squarish enamel with a big mirror unencumbered by a frame. If you like mattes and orangey burgundy pink tones, this is for you.

Yeeees, my fave.
The only drawback is the packaging - when you think you're finished with the product, you need to cut the top and scoop out the remaining bit.

My favourite mascara ever made. Gives me thick, full, long, black lashes. I have long and full lashes naturally, but this gives me the oomph I need to get it where I love my lashes without falsies. With max two coats. Also, the packaging is weighty and feels luxurious in my hands.

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

When I first looked at this palette in the Sephora website the colours looked amazing! I have Olive Tan skin and I love how warm toned purples and corals look on me. I didn’t have many eyeshadow palettes, so when I saw all the good reviews on this palette I was like you know what? I might as well buy it.
When I got it I started swatching, and I didn’t like it at all for some reason. The light shades on the left were so powdery they blended away, I can’t even use them, but the warm transition shades were amazing! The shade that I was excited about the most was Peach Sangria. But it swatches so bad!! My Zoeva and morphe eyeshadow brushes barely pick it up, so I was like I should just try to apply it with my finger and then blend the edges, but nope, it doesn’t work as well. I was so disappointed. Anyways the 3 darkest shades on the right swatched the best.
But sadly, all of the shades barely show up on my eyelids. I tried everything to make this work. I can use like 5 shadows in total that was a waste of money wasn’t it?
And by the way- the colours in real life look so much brighter, I wish they were as muted as they look like swatched in the Sephora website.
In conclusion, I spent so much money on palettes that don’t work, I should invest in something gurenteed to work- Natasha Denona palettes for example. Expensive but worth it!

This is such a glitter bomb on me. I may have been spoiled by the Hourglass highlighters. I will not purchase.

I like to use this product on my neck and décolletage. The smell is heavenly and a joy to use. I will repurchase.

I bought this once before they came out with more shades, and the shade closest to me was too dark and the wrong undertones (golden- pink undertones). Then I bought it again (in the shade Sand- medium tan w/ golden undertones) when they released new shades, and I think I'm just too oily with it.

I always buy foundations with yellow/golden undertones but wow this one is just too yellow. I want to try mixing it with my wnw photofocus just to use it up but I won't be repurchasing it.

My oily skin girls, STEP AWAY from the foundation sisters. Don’t even glance at this, it will stay on for a cool hour and look beautiful. Then after that, your hopes and dreams will die. The foundation will melt off and you’ll look like you set your foundation with Pam. It’s a no go for me

This mascara is amazing! It's really lengthening, somewhat volumizing and makes perfect seperated lashes! This one really impressed me. The only two cons are the price and that it dry out fast. This dries up in 2 months on me, and for that price, I expect more.


Eye Primer -Too Faced -Shadow Insurance

Hate Hate Hate Hate.

Got as a free gift w/purchase.

Dries powdery immediately as soon as it's applied.

Causes skipping, uneven pigmentation, muddy blend lines, rolling of shadow around the eyelid and crease area.

I have oily lids, this makes me feel like I have the eyelids of a 90 yr old. Lots of my shadows won't even stick to it.

Will be sticking to my Clinique concealer I've been using for YEARS as my primer.

Hate hate hate hate this product.

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

on 3/20/2018 12:50:00 AM

Ok. So. I went to Ulta to purchase the Too Faced Life's a Festival eyeshadow palette (freakin' awesome) and I got a little splurge happy, and purchased this.

The packaging and container are awesome. I wish they had amped up the tube a little more, but it's very classy looking as all Too Faced lipstick tubes are.

The Mystical Effects line (Mermaid, Fairy, Unicorn, and I can't remember, Tears) are all duo-chrome, dual-shift, sheer with underlying lip-stain that takes a few moments to take effect.

Unicorn Tears starts as a light blue iridescent that quickly gains a gorgeous underlying dark pink stain. It's supposed to be used over long lasting liquid matte lipstick to give it a 3d quality. I use it over Covergirl 24hr long lasting matte liquid lipstick, or Maybelline 24 hour super last in reds & pinks, after I let the matte lipstick dry, I dot on lightly, then coat with the included Covergirl or Maybelline gloss.

I did find it a little drying. Impossible to wear alone & heavy, without looking like an alien, and will gather in creases if worn by itself. Takes time to get used to, but certainly is a showstopper when you learn to use it right. Just like their highlighter, less is more, even less is just enough.

It's freaking IMPOSSIBLE to swatch the color shift!

Only said I wouldn't purchase again, because I want the Fairy Tears color, vs the Unicorn. 🦄🦄🦄

Palettes -Too Faced -Life's A Festival Eye Shadow Palette

on 3/19/2018 10:20:00 PM

The first reviewer did a good job describing the actual colors, so I won't go there.

When I saw this palette in the Ulta mailer, I HAD to get it. I'm a major sucker for true duo-chrome (color-shift) eyeshadows, so when I saw the awesome selection in this palette, it was bought already.

I'd say there's 4 true dual-shift colors (as in a true two color shift, not just a Holo/glitter/metallic compliment in the same color); mystic rain, beamin', unicorn tears, & artist pass. Euphoric, Rainbow Life, Sunset Dream, Dusk Teal Dawn, and Fireflies are metallic, Young and Free, Desert Vibes, and Funtasy are heavily pigmented mattes. Fireflies is described as a golden-green, and even shows as green in the glamour guide insert, but I find it to be a yellow-gold, no green tinge.

I certainly don't consider it a one-done palette, I use it in conjunction with my ABH Prism palette, amongst others. I do use it often though. It's perfect for that highlight/pop color element to your eyeshadow look, certain to get compliments all day.

I was disappointed in the packaging. It could've been really cute, but ended up looking cheap.

Size is fine, although I'll update when I see the actual bottom of the pans. Was super excited about the size of the Unicorn Tears dual-shift highlighter, will get a lot of mileage out of that.

Would replace immediately, has several colors you can't get outside of indie brands (fyrinnae arcane magic comes to mind, but it's loose and harder to deal with).

Wore really well, but you have to use the right primer, or it'll go on patchy. Need something that is tacky but doesn't roll or crease. TF Shadow Insurance or Hard Candy primer, or even UDPP won't cut it. I actually use Clinique concealer, because it's super tacky until you set it with powder (shadow) then it doesn't move. The dry primers will roll it around your eye, and you'll get a muddy look.

Palettes -Too Faced -Life's A Festival Eye Shadow Palette

on 3/18/2018 8:25:00 PM

Too Faced's Life's A Festival palette contains 12 powder eye shadows in three different finishes; Young & Free (matte bubblegum pink), Rainbow Life (vibrant coral pink shimmer), Sunset Dream (golden tangerine shimmer), Fun in the Sun (gold to green shift), Fireflies (gilded golden green), Funtasy (shimmer electric orchid), Dusk Teal Dawn (vibrant shimmering teal), Euphoric (peachy gold shift), Desert Vibes (matte warm caramel brown), Beamin' (pearl to gold shift), Mystic Rain (lavender to aqua shift), Artist Pass (teal to maroon shift). The larger pan at the bottom center of the palette is a duo chrome powder that is a highlight for the eyes and cheeks (Unicorn Tears - iridescent light blue to lilac shift).

You can technically make a variety of complete-look-in-one-palette looks with this palette as a couple of the shimmer shades contain only slight shimmer and are largely matte once applied [Rainbow Life and Funtasy], although the extremely small ratio of true-matte shades means that I do prefer to use some matte shades from another palette alongside this one to get the most out of it. Unicorn Tears does indeed make a poppy cheek highlight and you can use one of the lighter metallic shades as a fun cheekbone highlight - it is a 'happy times' festival palette, after all. I also think that the matte pink shade and shimmering pink & tangerine shades make pretty good blush shades, so this palette makes a great three-in-one product that is perfect to take whilst traveling.

Too Faced can be inconsistent when it comes to the formulas of their shadows, but the ones used for this palette are smooth and easy to work with; there is some fallout with the shadows, but that has never been a problem for me so long as the shadows apply and wear well, which these do [I have dry skin]. The formula is this palette contains rose quartz powder, which gives the shadows a gentle scent, which I can't fully describe as it is barely noticeable to me - if you're especially sensitive to fragranced makeup, then you might want to test the Life Is a Festival palette before buying it.


I'll buy this palette again if I lost as as most of the shades in it are unique to me. However I'm not totally happy with this the way that I have been with lots of my other Too Faced palettes; this is not a complete-look-in-one palette for 'everyday' looks as there are only two true matte shades in this palette, which is disappointing and could put some people of buying Life Is A Festival - a real shame, as their duo chrome/colour shift shades are stunning. There's no unwritten rule that every eye shadow palette has to be a one-and-done deal, but - call me lazy - I favour complete-look-in-one eye shadow palettes as I prefer not having to waste time when getting ready, with having to root through several palettes and singles to look for complementary base, highlight and crease and/or transition shades to pull everything together and "finish me off", whenever I want to wear shades from this palette.
