Too Faced Smoky Eye Palette ($34) From superstar celebrity clients to soccer moms and sorority girls, it seems like everyone wants smoky eyes and yet no one knows how to create them! So, Too Faced (Jerrod) has come to the rescue with this professional quality, smoky eye kit that contains everything you need to create sexy, sizzling lids for any occasion and for any age. Included are three, easy-to-follow, step-by-step instruction cards that allow you to smoke it up for looks to take you from the office or school, straight to the red carpet or runway in a flash. Not to mention the fact that it’s super, duper fun!
What a great palette! It comes with 3 easy-to-follow, step-by-step instruction cards that make creating the perfect smoky eye quick and simple. The one thing I didn’t like about this palette is that the shadows are not labeled. You don’t know the name of each shadow. The eyeshadows have great pigment to them. I don’t use the green and blue. I’m a little scared of color. It’s not as good as the Too Faced Natural Eye Kit, but it’s still good.
Too Faced Natural Eye Kit ($34) The Natural Eye Kit contains everything you need to create the pretty, soft, and slightly sexy “natural eyes” you’ve seen on super models and celebrities and have always wanted to perfect for yourself. The three easy-to-follow, step-by-step instruction cards lead you through every fun step to insure a professional looking application every time!
I have been bugging the 2 Sephora stores by my house for the past couple of months about when they would receive the Too Faced Natural Eye Kit in stores. Finally, I have been able to get my hands on this palette! Was it worth the wait? Oh, yes! I love the colors! Perfect for the day and nighttime. There are both matte and shimmery shadows. What I love about these shadows is the shimmery shadows don’t contain glitter. They actually shimmer. I don’t use the sponge tip brush that comes with it. I find it useless. When I used these shadows with an eyeshadow primer, it lasted all day and night. Even through these past several humid, summer days. The collection also comes with 3 step-by-step cards that help you create different looks with the shadows! This is now my new everyday-go-to shadows.
Warning: just because this is a natural eyeshadow pallete it doesn’t mean the colors go on light and natural. It’s actually quite pigmented.
Tarte Mineral Powder Bronzer ($28) Tarte Mineral Powder Bronzer is an oil-, talc- and fragrance-free bronzer that fuses earthly minerals with naturally derived ingredients for a finish that’s pure perfection. This bronzer contains Skinvigorating™ ingredients like vitamins A and E, which act as antioxidants to fight free radical damage and mineral pigments that are known for their soothing and softening properties.
This is definitely one of my favorite bronzers. Aside from the adorable packaging and clever shade names (Hotel Heiress and Park Avenue Princess), I love how light weight this bronzer feels. When I wear this bronzer, it looks like I just came back from a day a the beach. It goes on super smooth and looks so natural. The bronzer gives you a natural glow; not a shimmery glow (which I love!). I think this bronzer will work for all the skintones because of its sheerness, but yet buildable formula.
Too Faced Caribbean In a Compact ($25) All right girls listen up…enough sun damage and endangering your life with those nasty UVB and UVA rays. There is no excuse when Too Faced has created five unique one-of-a-kind bronzers. Control your fake bake and choose a subtle glow or a savage tan.
I have this bronzer in Snow Bunny (pictured). I use this as a bronzer, highlighter, and blush. It’s shimmery, but nothing to be afraid of. It gives you a healthy glow. I’ve had this for a couple of years now and I still haven’t hit the bottom yet. I mostly use this during the late fall, winter, and early spring when I am pale and in desperate need of some color. I love how it doesn’t make me orange or look like I have a fake tan. It gives you a natural look.
Too Faced Bronze ($28.50) This good-for-you bronzing powder is made of pure minerals and real crushed fresh water pearls to give an authentically natural flawless tan all year long! Pure illuminating pigments are naturally activated by your skin to create a brighter smoother and more radiant complexion.
Even though this bronzer shimmers, it gives your complexion a soft glow. Like a glow from within. It has a sheer coverage that is buildable. So if you have fair skin, you don’t have to worry about this being too dark. I can tell this is the type of bronzer that I will be using year round.
