Brand Spotlight: Too Faced Makeup Review

 

Although I’ve already done several reviews of Too Faced makeup on this blog, I’ve recently acquired some new goodies that I wanted to share with you guys. Instead of separate reviews, I thought – why not just do a Brand Spotlight?

 

Brand Spotlight Too Faced Makeup Review

 

Too Faced Lashgasm Mascara

 

Let’s start with my absolutely favorite product: Too Faced Mascara Lashgasm. This mascara holds a very special place in my makeup heart. It was one of the first mascaras that made me notice how formula and wand can play a role in how a mascara looks and performs. I can still remember very clearly the first time I applied it – I was instantly captivated. Since then, I’ve tried many, many other formulas but this will be a forever favorite. Using it now after about a year hiatus, I’m realising how much it actually reminds me of my Holy Grail Chanel Le Volume.

It gives similar length though not quite as much volume. For those of who were interested in Chanel Le Volume but are afraid of potential “spider lash”, the Lashgasm is a wonderful alternative. I actually prefer it for bottom lashes – the wand is slimmer and can get to those sparse little hairs without making a mess.

Too Faced Melted Lipstick- Melted Fig

 

When I reviewed the Too Faced Melted Lipstick in Peony, I noted that the other colour I would consider trying is Melted Fig. Well, of course, I picked it up. It is truly a “melted lipstick” not a gloss or anything. The formula is nice and the finish is similar to a typical Satin lipstick. Melted Fig is a pink-purple-mauve color that screams “Fall” (Autumn).

Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer

 

Everyone already knows this, but the Chocolate Soleil Bronzer is infused with cocoa powder which gives it an incredible chocolate smell. Too Faced promises that “signature bronzing pigments create a unique matte bronzer that neutralizes red and evens skin tone”. As bronzers go, this one is on the neutral-cooler side of things and has a matte finish, meaning it’s great for contouring.

Too Faced Sun Bunny Bronzer

 

A newer product to me, Sun Bunny is warmer than Chocolate Soleil and has a sheen finish. It adds a healthy glow to the skin and makes a perfect Summer bronzer!

    I love their Melted Lipsticks! I love the way Fig looks on other people, but don’t think it will look good on me. I’ve tried their “Lights, Camera, Action” mascaras, but they didn’t help my sad, skimpy lashes. I do want to try more from the line! Especially their bronzers.

      I’ve not tried “Lights, Camera, Action” – but I think that’s Tarte, no? I sometimes get the brands confused. In general, I think Too Faced does mascara well. You should definitely try more from the line! 🙂 xo

        You are 100% correct! I always get those two mixed up! Duh!!! :p

    I love Too Faced so much, The packaging is so lovely. The Melted Lipsticks are fab. I have Violet and Coral although the Coral is a bit of a random coral colour. I want the rest!!

      I almost purchased Violet but decided I wanted a more muted purple. I’m still think about it though, hehe. 🙂 xo

    Too Faced is surprisingly a brand I have admired for years but never tried. Melted Fig is gorgeous, so opaque and pigmented. Looks incredible. Been wanting to buy Peony for ages. Will keep an eye on the sales after boxing day and maybe grab it. 🙂 x

      Let me know how you get on with it if you do try Melted Peony. Fingers crossed for the after holiday sales. xo 🙂

    I personally wasn’t fan of this mascara. I like their Better Than Sex mascara much better! I have only on shade of their melted lipsticks and love it! Melted Fig looks stunning <3 Might need to pick it up 😀

    I love the Too Faced Melted Lipstick and the Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer. Though I am really wanting to try some of their eyeshadows. 🙂

      I want to try some more of their eye shadows as well. The only ones I have are the Romantic Eye Palette and some singles. 🙂

    I love Too Faced makeup. I am obsessed with their BTS mascara and I definitely want to try their melted lipstick and the color you showed looks awesome!
