Too Faced Cosmetics is a cruelty-free makeup brand with a mission to inspire “unapologetic glamour and femininity.” They produce quality beauty products with lovely packaging and encourage you to #ownyourpretty. After discovering their SWEET on you set, an online [holiday] exclusive, I placed an order immediately because it contained an eyeshadow palette of my choice AND many other goodies.
As you can see, the box my order was shipped in is glamorous. It’s pink and I love it. The products inside the pretty pink box arrived intact and to my surprise, included samples of Too Faced bronzers and BB cream as well (thank you TF!). The SWEET on you set was a perfect holiday exclusive for me because I was able to get Too Faced’s new eyeshadow palette and try their best-sellers (something I’ve wanted to do for sometime now). This SWEET on you set included:
- Any Chocolate Bar palette (I chose the new Chocolate Bon Bons.)
- “Too Faced Is My Life” makeup bag
- Mini Better Than Sex Mascara
- Mini Melted in Candy lipstick
The Chocolate Bon Bons packaging is absolutely charming. The palette has a decent sized mirror on the inside and 16 unique (scented!) eyeshadows. Each eyeshadow is smooth, buttery, and has a great color-payoff. The collectable makeup bag I received in this set is the perfect size to hold the palette, mascara, and lipstick.
I tried the Better Than Sex mascara for the first time and I must say, I’m impressed. The mascara lengthened my lashes and held a defined curled that lasted all day. I’m excited to try their new waterproof formula coming out in March. As for the mini Melted lipstick I received, the color sadly wasn’t my favorite from the line and I wish I was given the option to choose a more neutral shade. Overall, the formula and pigmentation of the lipstick is stunning, but I still have to test whether or not it’s truly a “long-wear” lipstick.
