I was given a sample from Too Faced for their new Lash Injection Mascara, and I was super excited to give it a try. I am a mascara junkie, and Too Faced is one of my favorite brands. I really enjoy this mascara. When I first tried it I did one coat, and really wasn’t that impressed. But after I read the box, it did say 2-3 coats will really make your lashes stand out, and that is the truth! Since I love a dramatic look, I use 3 coats and I am really happy with the results. Sometimes it can get a bit clumpy looking, but if you have a good lash comb I would recommend using that to help that problem. I really like how easy it is to remove as well. My regular eye makeup remover makes it come right off, and the tubes slip off easily and without a mess. One for your beauty bag!
I started using Too Faced products a couple years back, and they quickly became a staple in my makeup bag. I have their face primer, mascara, eye primer, multiple eye shadow collections, lip plumping gloss and bronzer. One of my favorite eye shadow collections is the Natual Eye. I am a big fan of natural looking makeup, and this collection of shadows really does the trick. There are three instructional cards that come with it as well, and the tips for achieving the look you want are great to have. My favorite mixture is Silk Teddy all over my eyelids, Pushup on the crease, and Honeypot towards the end of my lids. When I got out, I like to sweep Nude Beach over the eyelids as well for the extra sparkle, and often use Sexpresso as a liner. If you like a natural look, I recommend this. I think my next collection will be the Naked Eye or the Matte Eye collection.
I have a new favorite beauty brand, Too Faced Cosmetics. Recently, I picked up their Primed and Poreless Face Primer, a little fun gift for myself to try out something new. I have never used a primer before, but have read many good things about the magical powers they can do to one’s face. And let me tell you- I love this product! The directions advise to use a nickel size amount and spread evenly over your face, and it will help smooth skin and banish pores. Too Faced even boasts that this primer will leave skin hydrated and firmer, and make your appearance seem brighter, younger, and fresher. The primer goes on underneath all makeup, foundation, bronzer and concealer included, and helps makeup go on smoother and stay on longer. And I stand by all those qualities! The pores on my cheeks were basically gone, my skin looked smoother and even felt much, much smoother, and my makeup lasted longer throughout the day- even through my workout routine! What really amazed me about this product though it how it covered a scar on my nose. I had my nose pierced for some time in college, and when I removed the ring I got a wonderful bluish scar left in its place. I have not been able to find anything to help conceal the mark, not even Estee Lauders “miracle puddy” that costs $100. But the Primed and Poreless helped fade the color once applied! I couldn’t believe when I looked in the mirror and could barely notice my scar. I definitely recommend this product for anyone who wants to erase pores, smooth skin, and help hide any imperfections. It doesn’t completely conceal acne, so I use a foundation over top, but it really does help make the skin look fresher. At $30, it might seem a little expensive, but I don’t have a problem paying for a product that actually works!
I recently tried the Too Faced Lip Injection product, and I have finally found a product that does what it promises! This lip gloss says it will give your lips a plumper look- up to 20% fuller lips with only one application. And it worked! When I slicked it for the first time, I felt a tingling sensation after about five minutes, and wondered if that was normal. After checking the website, I found that the tingling is very normal- it means it’s working! The Lip Injections include a Vitamin E Derivative, which increases blood circulation, plumping lips without creepy and costly injections. Lips appear fuller for up to four hours after application, making this my new favorite lip gloss. It is a little costly at $19 a tube, but I think it is worth the money!
