I love Too Faced – the products are amazing and the philosophy is that make-up should be fun to use! There are enough serious brands out there so sometimes it’s nice to indulge in make-up that is meant to make us look good but have fun while doing it. I’ve got my hands on some new products this season which I LOVE and have tested out over the weekend. So here are a few favourites…
First off let me tell you that I actually tested the Hangover Primer when I really had a hangover. If that is not getting your hands dirty in the name of research and field testing I don’t know what is! But yes, after a few glasses of wine the previous night before I had a serious pounder of a headache and the skin did not look good to boot. So a bright light sparked in my dull head and I remembered I had just gotten this beauty over the weekend so wanted to test it out. And what better timing to test the Hangover Primer then when having a hangover.
First off I have to hand it to Too Faced – I mean this is a brilliant name for a product. We all know that our skin does not look good after a hangover and mine certainly didn’t this morning. And no you don’t have to have a hangover to use this! I applied this after letting my moisturiser sink in and before applying foundation. The formula feels very much like a moisturiser and it sinks in very easily. It contains hydrating coconut oil, probiotics and skin revivers to help rebalance the skin’s moisture levels. I don’t think I needed to even wear moisturiser as I think this can be used on its own. And yes, my skin did look dewier after applying and it does sink in quickly so doesn’t affect foundation application either.
Next up is Too Faced Born This Way Foundation which I LOVE. This certainly helped to mask the hangover which was brilliant. The foundation is designed to be undectable and has medium-to-full coverage. This is really good with the Hangover Primer and the coverage of the foundation is very good. It blends well too and goes on flawlessly. Another point for you Too Faced! This foundation also contains coconut water and alpine rose to naturally defend against the elements and includes hyaluronic acid to encourage a more youthful look.
And the biggest danger of a hangover is not only the sallow skin but the deadened eyes. So to perk my eyes right up I dipped into the Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Eye Shadow Palette. First up, who wouldn’t buy this palette? It has so many lovely colours that are really great for every single day and I swear this palette actually smells like chocolate. It really does.
I love the names of the eyeshadows and there are both matte and shimmery shades to suit every mood. I love the Mocha for every day and the Blackcurrant to create a more smokey eye for the evening.
For my hangover cure I chose the Cotton Candy which brought some colour back into my eye – a bit of pink to make me look healthy again!
The Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Eye Shadow Palette has 16 matte and shimmer shades and yes, the actual powder is infused with a sweet chocolate-scented, antioxidant-rich cocoa powder – that’s why it smells like chocolate!
