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. The formula is this palette contains rose quartz powder, which gives the shadows a gentle scent, which is barely noticeable to me - but if you're 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 - there's no unwritten rule that every eye shadow palette has to be a one-and-done deal, but - call me lazy - I'd just prefer not having to waste time when getting ready, by having to root through several palettes and singles to look for complementary base, highlight and crease and/or transition shades, whenever I want to wear shades from this palette.

- Skin looks brighter.
- Not expensive as SK-II treatment essence.
- Does not contain paraben.
- Nice glass packaging (purchased a while ago).

- Contains Phenoxyethanol - for those are avoiding it.

It does take a few uses to see the results, so be patient :)

Moisturizers -First Aid Beauty -Ultra Repair Cream

on 3/18/2018 8:07:00 PM


I bought this as I have extremely dry skin and eczema. This did not help one bit. My skin soaked it up, thought all was well, then one minute later my dry flakes are back. Was not impressed, and it is pricey.

Toners -SKII -Facial Treatment Essence

on 3/18/2018 8:03:00 PM

- My skin looks brighter and feels softer.

- Expensive.
- The last time I've used the product, it contained paraben.

For the price it's worth, I feel there are other dupes out there that can do a similar job at fraction of the price.

I have extremely dry skin. This has been my go to for the past couple of years. Never fails.

Liquid -Laura Mercier - Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Foundation

The application and texture is so smooth on this foundation and the packaging is great. However, it separated off my skin and became cakey after a few hours. I did try it for a couple of days with and without primer I tried to exfoliate before and nothing helped. My skin is sensitive and it did not make me break out.

Nail Tools -OPI -Crystal File

on 3/18/2018 7:53:00 PM


It's not like those cheap glass nail file on eBay. They're durable and does the job. They've lasted me for a while and still going strong.

It is a little expensive considering it's branded and stocked in the big department store. But if you're tired of replacing those emery boards, this is for you.
Just be careful not to drop them as they can crack.

Primer/ Corrector -NYX -Pore Filler

on 3/18/2018 7:48:00 PM


I suffer from very large pores and terrible redness. I use just a very thin layer of this, and then a very thin layer of Hard Candy green primer before my foundation, Revlon CS. I then finish with Neutrogena shine free pressed powder.

My nasty skin looks completely flawless. I don't know how this product would look on it's own. I do take issue with the price but like others said, a little goes a long way.

Will definitely be repurchasing.
