Too Faced is a brand that’s pretty highly regarded in the beauty community, especially among those who have chosen the cruelty-free lifestyle. So when I spotted this limited edition set at Kit Cosmetics, I knew I had to buy it.
The set of 3 miniature versions of Too Faced’s best-selling products include the Better Than Sex Mascara, Shadow Insurance Anti-Crease Eye Shadow Primer, and the Perfect Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner. Can you guess which one’s my favourite?
Better Than Sex Mascara
Inside the little, frosted-pink tube features a curved brush applicator that works together with a collagen infused formula to give the illusion of lush, full-bodied lashes. The dense bristles easily transfer product onto my lashes without clumping at all – the trick is to use a light hand.
Having poker-straight lashes (Asian genes!), a curler is still a must for me but it is much easier to achieve the right amount of volume and curl with this Too Faced mascara.
I love it! It’s my holy grail mascara!
Shadow Insurance Anti-Crease Eye Shadow Primer
The soft, plastic tube dispenses the Shadow Insurance Primer out of a dropper-like tip, giving you ultimate control over how much or how little you want to use. Straight out of the tube, the product is beige like a tinted moisturiser but disappears once it’s smoothed down onto the skin.
A couple minutes after application, it dries down to a slightly tacky base your eye shadow will easily adhere to. It definitely makes eye shadow appear more pigmented.
Sauce Box’s Orange Sun eyeshadow – with and without primer
Perfect Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner
This little eyeliner packs so much colour, I almost feel guilty for dismissing it so quickly when the sales girl at Kit Cosmetics told me it was her favourite of the three! The gel formula glides onto skin with ease and stays there for hours on end without smudging.
The full-sized Perfect Eyes Eyeliner comes with a smudger so you can achieve a smokey look too! Though, I’m not too sure whether I’ll purchase it after this goes. I’ve really taken a liking to my Visualeyes liquid eyeliner from Eyeko…
Too Faced is a cruelty-free brand to try if you’re in the market for mid-high end cosmetics that deliver on quality. As detailed in the ingredients lists in the images above, it’s not a natural/organic brand so take from that what you will.
They’ve also come out with their Born This Way foundation in Australia, a medium-to-full coverage foundation that’s highly buildable. Head in to Mecca Maxima to get colour matched and grab a sample if you’re keen!
