I won’t lie, as I’m doing these, I’m finding myself having more and more fun messing around with makeup. I used to loathe having anything to do with it.
Part two here will be specifically about Too Faced products, which I’m finding myself liking quite as lot. I didn’t want to throw myself wholly into them, so there’s nothing like foundation or concealer or the like in here (as you can tell by the post title), but I may come back to the brand and see about trying them.
Also — I have somehow managed to corrupt or somehow mess up the pictures of the products that I took, so the only one that remains is the one I used for the cover photo for the post. Because of this, and because I’m far too lazy to go through all of the swatches and such again, I’m going to dig around YouTube and include some videos I like that feature the product in question. Sound good?
Let’s do this.
Really liking the blush out of this one, it’s a pretty color and it doesn’t pick up a huge amount of product at once, so I can’t overdo it immediately and make myself look clownish. I don’t use much of it, really, because my face is kind of red naturally thanks to the constant heat of Florida, but what I do use, I enjoy.
The highlighter I’m not sold on yet, though, and I blame that on the fact I just don’t use highlighter normally. I’m trying to start using a little in some places, but I also don’t use bronzer (because, so far, I only ever look washed out when I attempt, I need to research it a bit better for my skin tone), so I don’t know if it not looking right to me is going to change if I continue to skip bronzer. It’s a nice, subtle shine, though, and I do like that.
Overall, I’m pretty pleased with this duo. I’m not going to keep myself from trying other brands, since I’m not knowledgable on these things and don’t know if this is as good as they come, but if I can’t find a better I will definitely be coming back to it.
I think the thing I liked the most out of this while lip deal was the scent, because I’m kind of iffy on scents when it comes to the things I put on my mouth. A lot of them tend to be cake scented, or a sort of super sweet cake-like scent, and a lot of the times it only gives me a headache to bother using them. I wouldn’t say this one wasn’t super sweet in the scent department, but, since it was peach, I liked it a lot more than I did the normal cakey scents that come with lip products.
However, I wasn’t thrilled with the color payoff. It’s a gloss, so it’s not like I was expecting a lot, but it took a few more coats than I liked for any color to really show up beyond being a somewhat streaky mess. This could be because I’m not a lip gloss kind of person, I prefer chapstick as a whole. I did enjoy how this gloss wasn’t necessarily sticky or straight-up oily, though. It was a nice texture, and I am hoping I can actually find more glosses with the texture this one has.
I know nothing about eyeshadow, but I will admit, I am in love with this palette. I love the colors, I love the scent, I love the texture. The only thing I don’t like about it is the price, but the price of makeup kills me a little inside as a whole. That being said, I think I’ll definitely consider repurchasing this when the time comes, though I doubt that’ll ever be anytime soon.
Before picking this specific palette up, I looked over a bunch of other Too Faced (and Urban Decay, and such) palettes, but found I liked the colors in the Bon Bon one the best of the options that I had. I haven’t had a chance to try all of the colors and combinations yet, but so far I haven’t been disappointed with any of the ones I have tried. The little pamphlet they give you inside the palette is also super helpful for a noob like me, and I’ve used it multiple times. If you don’t mind the price, I would highly recommend this one for beginners.
And that’s part two of my makeup adventures! Possibly more to come.
Thanks for reading!
