Review + swatches – Too Faced x Kat Von D Better Together Ultimate Eye Collection, Better Together Cheek & Lip Kit, and Better Together Bestselling Mascara and Liner Duo

Too Faced x Kat Von D Better Together Ultimate collection review and swatches

I’m a bit late on the bandwagon but earlier this year, Too Faced and Kat Von D released a collaboration collection, combining both of the brands’ classic styles into one. I was curious about this collection because I like Too Faced products, but I’ve never tried Kat Von D.

The highlight of this collaboration is definitely the Better Together Ultimate Eye Collection (C$79). This a two-palette eyeshadow kit that sticks together with heavy magnets. On one side you have Too Faced’s classic sweet neutral eye look with some pinks and lots of shimmers, and on the other you have Kat Von D’s more glam, sultry eye look featuring darker shades. I’m very happy that each side actually creates a very cohesive eye look on their own, and the colours work together seamlessly and are pretty much fool-proof.

The Too Faced side features two matte shades, two shimmery metallic shade, one satin shade with gold glitters, and another shimmery satin shade. The quality of these shades is fantastic, and each of these are one swipe wonders, giving you incredible colour payoff with fantastically smooth texture and blendability. The only shade that didn’t perform as well was Better Together, which was slightly patchy and blended unevenly. Otherwise, even the two matte shades were perfect.

On the Kat Von D side, I was going crazy over the shade Swoon, which is a duo-chrome metallic red. I now know why people are so in love with Kat Von D shadows, they truly are quite amazing. While the Too Faced side was quite warm, the Kat Von D side is noticeably cooler, but even then you can create a plethora of different eye looks with just this one palette. One other thing is that the shade Devotion, which is a matte black, is so crazy deep black, but still very pigmented and smooth. I was really disappointed with some of Urban Decay’s matte blacks before, so this definitely beats it out of the park. The only shade that was disappointing on this side was Lovestruck, the neutral golden shimmer. It had very little colour payoff, and was also harder in texture than the others.

The Better Together Ultimate Eye Collection also comes with a full size Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara in Black and full size Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper (black). These alone have values of C$55 together, so the palette is essentially only C$24, which is pretty awesome.

My personal favourite of this collaboration is the Better Together Cheek & Lip Makeup Bag Set (C$47). The makeup bag features a cute dog with a glitteyr background on one side (for Too Faced), and a Sphinx cat on the other side (for Kat Von D). It also comes with a mini Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in Muse (shimmering nude), a mini Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in XO (matte oxblood), a mini Too Faced Love Flush Blush in So Happy Together (peony pink), and a mini Too Faced Candlelight Glow Highlighting Powder in Rosy Glow (golden sheer). This kit is a great discovery set for you try out multiple fan favourites at once, all housed together in one cute makeup bag!

Lastly, there’s also a mini Better Together Bestselling Mascara & Liner Duo (C$28), which contains minis of the Faced Better Than Sex Mascara in Black and  Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper. If you’ve never tried either of these formulas before, this would be a nice set to pick up.

In terms of my overall thoughts on the collection, I was a little bit surprised from the price of the mini sets. The Ultimate Eye Collection is a great buy, especially if you are already a fan of the Tattoo Liner and Better than Sex mascaras. I was expecting that the Bestselling Mascara & Liner Duo would be priced under $20, and the Cheek and Lip Makeup Bag would be under $40. Maybe I’m just used to Sephora offering value products all the time, who knows, but my first impression was a bit of a sticker shock.

Other than that, if you’re fans of either Too Faced or Kat Von D, I do highly recommend picking up the Ultimate Eye Collection, the eyeshadows in the two palettes are simply beautiful.

The Too Faced x Kat Von D collaboration is available now at Sephora.

Review + swatches – Too Faced Sweet Peach palette

Too Faced Sweet Peach palette review and swatches

Ever since I first heard about the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette, I was hooked and I knew I wanted this. I wasn’t expecting that this palette quickly became the obsession of the rest of the beauty-loving internet as well, and this palette became one of the hardest products I’ve ever tried to buy. After 15-hour day spent refreshing Sephora, I finally got my hands on this elusive Sweet Peach (C$59) palette!

Too Faced Sweet Peach palette review and swatches

This is my first time trying Too Faced eyeshadows and to be honest I have mixed feelings. The shimmer and metallic shades are absolutely breathtaking, applying smoothly and richly. I am extremely disappointed in the matte and glitter shades though, as they are very powdery with a lot of fallout. While I was swatching this, the eyeshadow was falling off my fingers and arms and onto the floor and my pants… that’s how powdery they are. You will no doubt need a sticky base if you are planning to layer the matte shades.

I also found this palette a bit too warm for my skin tone, with the exception of some shades. When I use this, I usually concentrate towards the left side of the palette, rather than the right side which has more of the poorly performing shades.

The big, BIG bonus is that it smells absolutely delicious – like candied peaches! I can’t stop sniffing this, so just based on that I would tell all makeup lovers to get this…

Too Faced Sweet Peach palette review and swatches

My favourite shades are Just Peachy and Bellini, both beautiful peachy duochrome shimmers. I also really love Cobbler and Caramelized. These are the easiest shades to wear, in my opinion, and aren’t too warm for my skintone.

The best performing shades were Luscious, Just Peachy, Tempting, Nectar, Cobbler, Bellini, and Caramelized. The worst performing shades were Charmed, I’m sure, Peach Pit, Delectable (the worst of them all), Summer Yum, and Talk Derby to Me (another fail).

Do you need this? I would probably say no. I have read other reviewers say that this palette is comprised of colours from other Too Faced palettes, so if you already have a bunch of the other Too Faced palettes, I would say definitely skip. But if you are like me and love that peachy sweet scent, um yeah you would want this.

Too Faced Sweet Peach palette is sold out everywhere online, but they hit Sephora stores on Friday, April 15, so get ready to go early if you want to grab one of these!

Review + swatches + look: Too Faced Born This Way Foundation

Too Faced Born This Way Foundation in Vanilla and Warm Nude review and swatch

Too Faced Born This Way Foundation (C$49), new for summer 2015, is an oil free, full-coverage, luminous finish foundation. Currently vailable in 12 shades with 6 new shades coming out this fall, it is infused with coconut water for hydration and boosting radiance, alpine rose for brightening and promoting elasticity, and hyaluronic acid to hydration and smoothing the skin’s surface.

The shade Warm Nude is the perfect match for my NC25 skin tone. Warm Nude is yellow-based but definitely a lot more neutral leaning. I also received Vanilla which is a tinge too light, which normally would be okay but it’s also too yellow. Vanilla would be better for NC20 skin tones.

Too Faced Born This Way Foundation in Vanilla and Warm Nude review and swatch
Too Faced Born This Way Foundation in Vanilla and Warm Nude review and swatch

For a long-lasting foundation, Born This Way is very hydrating. Even though it is high coverage, it feels ultra light on the skin, and melts in like silk. In terms of hiding imperfections, it does an amazing job at covering redness and small blemishes. The freckles on my cheeks still peek through, which is great because it’s not an entirely mask-like effect. Pore coverage is above average; the foundation smooths over most of my pores leaving an even look. The finish on this foundation is a satin – not quite dewy and not quite matte. If you have dry skin, you don’t need to powder afterward. I powder anyways to help with lasting power, and also because I prefer the matte look on work days.

The most impressive thing about Born This Way Foundation is that last power is incredible – I wore this for a full 14 hours (apply at 8AM, remove at 10PM) and the foundation looked almost exactly the same as when I just applied it, maybe even better due to it blending with the natural oils on my face. Because of its hydrating properties, oil control weren’t great and I generally have to blot after a few hours, and then throughout the day. Despite the blotting, it still stayed mostly intact on my face throughout the day.

I can’t say enough good things about this foundation. I’ve previously found full coverage foundations that I liked but I didn’t love, whereas I really love Born This Way Foundation. I have been finding myself reaching for this almost every day since I received it. For a full coverage foundation, you end up with flawless, yet natural-looking skin at the same time, which really is magical.

You can purchase Too Faced Born This Way Foundation at Sephora in stores and online.

Review + swatches – Too Faced Love Flush Long-Lasting 16-Hour Blush

Too Faced Love Flush blush review and swatches

Too Faced Love Flush Long-Lasting 16-Hour Blush (C$32) is a new blush formula from Too Faced, released this summer, that claims to wear for up to 16 hours of fade-proof, smudge-proof colour.

The formula of these Too Faced Love Flush blushes is just incredible – they are super soft, almost creamy, and also pigmented. The soft texture allows them to completely melt into the skin, blending the edges with the rest of your face and creating a beautiful glow. There are subtler shades for every day, such as “I Will Always Love You” and “Baby Love” (my favourite!), as well as bolder shades such as “Your Love is King” for those nights out.

In terms of wear time, I found this to wear very well past the 10 hour mark, but fading around the 12 hour mark. I normally apply this at 8AM and then by 10PM and time for removal, it’s mostly faded. It doesn’t live up to its claim of 16 hour wear, but at the same time, a subtle blush wearing past the 10 hour mark is still very impressive.

Too Faced Love Flush blush in I will Always Love you review swatches

I Will Always Love You is a bright peachy orange with gold shimmer. This one is beautiful for the spring/summer as you look towards lighter blushes. The peachy orange tones in this one will also imitate that skin-kissed look for when the flowers first start to bloom.

Too Faced Love Flush blush in justify my love review and swatches

Justify My Love is a cool-toned medium pink with silver shimmer. This one doesn’t work as well on my neutral-to-warm skin tone as it’s very cool-leaning, but on cool-toned ladies, I can see this looking very beautiful.

Too Faced Love Flush blush in baby love review and swatches

Baby Love is my favourite of the bunch. A beautiful soft dusty rosy nude with fine gold shimmer, it’s the perfect blush for every day. It’s the least pigmented of the five here, and it also has the most visible shimmer.

Too Faced Love Flush blush in your love is king review and swatches

Your Love is King is a warm deep pink (almost berry red) with a satiny matte. This is the most pigmented of the five shown here and is also the one with the least shimmer. A tiny bit goes a super long way, and it blends out to an incredibly beautiful berry flush. This one will work well on any skin tone, fair to dark, as you control the intensity.

Too Faced Love Flush blush in love hangover review and swatches

Love Hangover is a light-medium coral pink with a satin finish and a bit of a gold sheen. It is just beautiful and a must-have for coral blush lovers. It’s not super shimmery, rather it’s more of a golden glow, when paired with the pink-toned coral will look good on most skin tones. This one is my second favourite of the five here and is something I reach for regularly on summer weekends when I’m going out for a stroll with the boyfriend.

Overall, the Too Faced Love Flush blushes are a winner. I just can’t get over how soft and silky the textures are, and how easily they blend into my skin for that natural glow. I’ve been wearing Baby Love almost exclusively since I received it, and I just love how it’s such a beautiful, everyday colour. While I can’t really think of a true downside to these blushes, I do find that most of these are warm-toned blushes so cool-toned ladies might have trouble finding something that suits their complexion. All in all, I believe that they’re worth a perusal the next time you’re at Sephora.

You can purchase Too Faced Love Blush blushes from Sephora in store and online.

Review + swatches + look: Too Faced Natural Matte Eye Palette

Too Faced Natural Matte Eye Palette review

Because a girl can never have too many good, neutral palettes, I am here to review the Too Faced Cosmetics Natural Matte Eye Palette! This delightful little palette retails for $48 CAD, and comes with six smaller, darker shadows and three larger, neutral shadows. The palette offers a whole arsenal of warm-toned nudes that are universally flattering on all skin tones.

I simply cannot say enough good things about this palette! As someone who typically prefers shimmery eyeshadows, I am incredibly impressed with both the versatility and the ease of application of these matte shades. To create a quick, simple look, you really can’t go wrong with sweeping one of the larger, nude shades across your entire lid and then picking a single color from the right-hand side to accentuate your crease.

Too Faced Natural Matte Eye Palette review

Heaven is likely my least favorite shade of the bunch, as I find it a little too softly pigmented for a highlight shade. Meanwhile, Honey Butter has very orange pay-off when applied to the lid, so I often find myself skipping it altogether.  The payoff on Lace Teddy also isn’t quite as nice as on the other shades. On the other hand, I can’t get enough of Risqué and Strapless! Generally I use the two shades together to create a smoky eye, but if I need something a little more natural I simply pair Strapless with Nudie for a more day-friendly look.

Too Faced Natural Matte Eye Palette review

My only reservations with this product are mostly related to its packaging. The compact itself is a metal tin, however the top lid is fragile and flimsy. I try to be extra careful when opening it up because I can easily see the hinge breaking if you weren’t being delicate with it. Additionally, I don’t love the names of the shadows – I know it can’t be easy naming all the subtle variations of an entire brand’s eyeshadow line, but these names feel really silly and young to me. “Sexspresso”, “Strapless”? They seem to be shades that would appear on makeup for teens, rather than for an adult brand.

That being said, the shadows themselves perform exceptionally well and strike the right balance between being pigmented enough on their own, while still allowing you the option to build-up their intensity with multiple coats. Overall, these shadows stay put through a busy work day and provide an excellent range of matte, nude tones that can be played either up or down. For $48 CAD, I think the Natural Matte palette is an excellent choice and a great value.

All-nighters & ultra simple fresh-faced FOTD

I had another all-nighter on Monday night/Tuesday morning while working on my business law assignment. I finished early in the morning and had time to kill so I decided to put on some makeup, also partly because my skin looked so horrible and sallow after another night of no sleep. You can see the crazy sallow face here:

This was my face after I gave it a quick, deep cleanse with some cleansing oil and Clinique Liquid Facial Soap. Its not as scary as before and there is some warmth back into my skin after washing it with nice warm water.

You can see that makeup makes a world of a difference.
Products I used
Face
Eyes
Its a very simple FOTD that you can do in probably 5 minutes flat. I love how the Graphic Lights palette is already pretty blendable, although some colours can get quite chalky.

I’m not wearing any falsies, so you can see that without them, I have almost no lashes XD. Also you can see that the Jill Stuart powder foundation has almost no coverage, as it doesn’t even cover up my freckles… *sigh*

This is before my lashes got combed out, haha. Oopsies.
Let’s end off with a funny face.

I realized today that I constantly have low blood sugar. How do I know that? I tend to feel ultra tired after a while with no eating. And I’m not just making up a reason for my pigging out… lol. I’ve noticed this pattern for a while now, especially when I’m in Kingston and I sleep for a bit longer than I usually sleep. Maybe its because I’m not eating a balanced diet or something, because it never happens when I’m at home and living with mom.
Anyways, what do you think about this look? And don’t forget to follow me to get updates about the one-year anniversary contest that I will have coming up! More full-size products have been added to the prizes.

Swatches and review: Too Faced Decade of Glamour Pt 3


This is part 3 of the swatches for the Too Faced Decade of Glamour Palette. If you missed out parts 1 and 2, you can check them out here and here, respectively.
Part 3 is going to focus on the right flap of lip products. There are 9 lip products in total in this palettes, which is why it is taking me so long to swatch everything.


This is Girly Grapefruit Beauty Balm from Summer 2004. It is a very sheer pink, that has some shimmer. Because it is a lip balm/gloss duo, it is also quite moisturizing and rich. Compared to what it looks like in the pan, it offers pretty good colour payoff as what you see is what you get, kind of thing. This would make a good everyday colour.
This is Ring Pop Bauble Gloss from Spring 2000. It is quite sheer, but very iridescent. I would think this is better layered on top of something more beige.
This is the lipstick (top) portion of Vanilla Ice Juicy Jewels from Summer 2003. This is VERY creamy, and one of my favourite consistencies from all of these lip products. It applies with very good pigmentation and it does a very good job at hiding my original lip colour. I would say this would make an awesome nude lip.


This is the lipgloss (bottom) portion of Vanilla Ice Juicy Jewels from Summer 2003. It is a gorgeous colour, with very good payoff as it comes out to be a very beautiful gold/copper shimmer. This would be beautiful on top of the lipstick that comes in the same tube.


This is Love Bites Glamour Gloss. Originally, I loved this colour when I was applying it because the pigmentation is amazing and the colour looks quite nice on. However when I was taking the picture, it looked somewhat blotchy, like the colour wasn’t distributed evening. Nonetheless, I still really like this colour, it is a near-raspberry, with gold shimmers.
The next and last part, will focus on the face products, as well as a thorough review of the mascara, eye liner and lip injection. Stay tuned!

Swatches and review: Too Faced Decade of Glamour Pt 2

This is part 2 of the swatches and reviews of the Too Faced Decade of Glamour Palette. You can check out part 1 here.
This time, we are going to focus on one flap of lip products. The products that have been swatches are seen below.

This is You’re no Lucky Girl lipstick from Fall 1999. It is a very nude beige colour that has medium pigmentation. I have pretty pigmented lips so in combination with this lipstick, it turned out to be beige-rose in the end. This is very creamy and applies smooth. This would make a really good lip colour if you were looking to create a nude lip. Even though it is quite creamy, it took me a large number of swipes with my lip brush in order to get enough product to cover both my top and bottom lips.
This is Marcia Marcia Marcia lipstick from Fall 1998. It looks bright pink in the palette but it lacks pigmentation. It turns out to be a pearly baby pink. It is creamy but doesn’t apply as smoothly as You’re no Lucky Girl. The pearl also seems to settle into fine lines, which is a turnoff for me.
This is Tattle Tale Gossip Gloss from Fall 2000. This is a very shimmery bronze colour. This would look gorgeous layered on top of a beige or fuchsia lipstick as it will create a lot of dimension. I wouldn’t say this is something I would wear on its own as it lacks a “base colour,” so layering would be the way to go. It smells great though!

This is my favourite out of the four. It is Sabotage Gossip Gloss from Spring 2003 and it is a very shimmery raspberry gloss. I would definitely wear this on its own because it has good pigmentation. You also don’t need too many swipes because the product is very smooth. It is somewhat sticky, but smells great.
Overall, I would say that this palette offers some good lip colour/consistency choices. There are 5 more lip products that I will swatch next time, but just from these 4, I am pretty much sold. The Too Faced Decade of Glamour palette is available at Sephora.

Swatches and review: Too Faced Decade of Glamour Pt 1

This is part 1 of the swatches and review of the Too Faced Decade of Glamour palette that I had previously purchased at Sephora. This part will focus solely on the eyeshadows.



Here are the swatches:

Top: Astro Turf (dark lime green), Zsa Zsa (purple with glitter), Label Whore (Taupe with green shimmer)

Bottom: Pixie Dust (gold), Ooh and Aah (metallic silver), Lovey Dovey (beige shimmer)

I am actually quite pleased with the pigmentation in most of the colours with the exception of Pixie Dust. While swatching these, I actually only had to swirl my finger 2-3 times to get the colour intensity that you see in the picture. However with Pixie Dust, I probably swirled my finger 7-8 times and still nothing much is showing up.

The shadows are all very smooth and easy to blend and apply. Zsa Zsa is the most glittery with obvious chunks of glitter and some shimmer. Labour Whore and Lovey Dovey are shimmers, Ooh and Aah is a metallic silver, Astro Turf is more matte than the others, although it does have some shimmer in it, and Pixie Dust I just couldn’t figure out what exactly it was. I was guessing Pixie Dust is supposed to be another metallic, but because of the lack of pigment, it was really hard to tell.

I would say these colours, with the exception of Lovey Dovey (and Pixie Dust due to lack of pigment), wouldn’t exactly be appropriate for work or daytime wear. They would definitely look gorgeous for a dinner or a holiday party. I am quite impressed with Ooh and Aah as it is a pure metallic silver with nothing special. Nowadays it is harder to find a pure colour because everyone likes new combinations of stuff, but this is good. I also really like Label Whore because it gives you a different colour payoff depending on which angle you look at it from: it is more multi-dimensional. I personally don’t wear green eyeshadow, so I doubt I will be making much use of it, but I just might end up creating a Christmas themed look some day in December when I feel inspired.

Overall, I still think this is a really good value to have because you have everything else on top of the eyeshadows. Also, I feel that this will make a really good kit to take with you when you’re going on short trips when you won’t be doing too many looks. I have a feeling I will be bringing this with me to the UK and Asia next year, along with some of my Dior stuff.

I will be swatching and reviewing the lip products and face products separately in later posts, so if you’re interested in it, watch out for that.

Review, NOTD and more pictures of the Too Faced palette


Here is the NOTD. I recently did a haul from Sephora and I was looking for some new nail polish, so I ended up getting this. This is Sephora by OPI in Opening Night, which is a dark blue with some shimmer. This picture was taken with flash, and you can see the shimmers more obviously and the colour looks more blue than in real life. When you see this in real life, it looks VERY dark, almost black, and the shimmers are not that obvious. I was looking for a shimmery dark blue nail polish and it didn’t end up being what I was looking for exactly. Nonetheless it is a gorgeous colour and I have a feeling I will be wearing this quite often.

What I love most about the Sephora by OPI formula is that it is extremely fast drying, something that Essie completely failed in. The colour is also very opaque (depending on which colour you get) and you get a very smooth finish. Believe it or not, in order to reach the opaqueness in the picture, I only applied ONE coat. There are no streak lines, even though I reapplied the polish to parts of the nail afterwards; everything still managed to blend in nicely.

Also, unlike the Essie that I had used for my previous NOTD, this formula is quite long lasting. I haven’t had much tip wear and no chips even after a few showers and once of scrubbing of scalp vigorously while washing my hair. This is my second Sephora by OPI nail polish, the other one being Mermain to Order, but I am quite happy with its formula overall and I can say I will be buying more.


Now for more pictures of the Too Faced Decade of Glamour wardrobe palette that I previously purchased from Sephora.

This palette includes NINE lip products! I think it is a bit too much as they could have included more eye products, but the colour selection is really good. I like that it is not all pinks, or red, and not all neutrals, there are some of each. There is also a mixture of glosses and lipsticks.


There are also 9 eyeshadows, a pure bronzer, a pure blush, and a bronzer/blush in one (the powder with the sillouette of the girl), a mini Lip Injection (plumper), a mini eyeliner and a mini mascara. I am looking forward to trying out the eyeshadows, the bronzer/blusher combo and the Lip Injection. After my last experience with a plumper, I’m hoping this one will be better.


Swatches and reviews of this palette will come later!

P.S. I have been super busy with assignments and presentations lately. I have 5 presentations and 3 major assignments in the span of 2 weeks, so please bear with me if I am not updating as much. Thanks so much for understanding!
