Beauty: Too Faced Natural Love Collection

Posted on June 29, 2017

Hi Guys!

The gorgeous Natural Love collection from Too Faced has recently landed at TSNC HQ, and I have the full lowdown for you today!

Starting with the lovely Natural Love Eyeshadow Palette (£52.00) – this beautiful palette contains a massive 30 eyeshadow shades, so though it might seem pricey at £52.00, it only works out at £1.73 per shadow, which is actually very reasonable. This is a must have palette for fans of nude and natural looks, but it also includes some darker shades so you can easily create a more in-depth smoky eye if required.

To create this palette, Too Faced selected their favourite neutral shades from three previous bestselling eye palettes – the Natural Eyes, Natural Matte, and Natural At Night palettes. They then paired these eyeshadows with cutting-edge textures and brand new colours – giving a modern spin on the traditional nude eye look. The Natural Love palette contains 7 matte, 13 shimmer and 10 sparkle shades, and the formula of all the shades is silky smooth, and well pigmented.

I haven’t had a chance to try all the shades out in depth as yet, but from what I have tried, I can tell you that Hot & Bothered is fabulous! It’s such a gorgeous burnt orange that really does give amazing colour payoff. Others to note are Love Bug, Push Up and Coffee Date – which are also all shimmer shades – these are definitely the best in terms of finish, and some of my favourite colours from the palette.

Next I have the Love Light Prismatic Highlighters (£25.00) – which truly are stunning. I literally love everything about these highlighters! The idea is that Too Faced wanted to capture the ethereal glow that occurs only when you’re in love – aww! This resulted in three beautiful shades, each with an innovative liquid-to-powder formula featuring a luminosity boosting agent and high pearl consistency. These highlighters really do give the most fantastic pearl shimmer finish – without any glitter or chunkiness.

The Love Light Highlighters are available in three shades –

  • You Light Up My Life – a golden yellow.
  • Blinded By The Light  – a champagne silver.
  • Ray of Light – a light beige pink.

And lastly the Melted Matte Liquified Matte Lipsticks (£19.00) – six new shades of Melted Mattes have been introduced in the Natural Love collection, and if you’re not familiar with the Melted Matte formula, you really need to check it out! These are one of my all time favourite liquid lipsticks – they apply like a smooth gloss, giving full, rich colour, and dry down to a true mate finish that lasts for hours.

Swatches from top to bottom –

  • Granny Panties – a lilac toned greige.
  • Wine Not? – a deep wine berry.
  • Wicked – an intense green.
  • Suck It – a muted rose.
  • Holy Chic! – a light nude peach.
  • Jawbreaker – a cool toned intense pink.

Though I’m not a fan of the name, I love the colour of Granny Panties (ha ha!) and I also love Wicked as it’s such an unusual, intense green.

Overall I’m really impressed with this collection. The palette is fantastic and just full of easy to wear shades. The highlighters look beautiful on the skin, and I also love the new innovative shades of the Melted Mattes. I’d love to hear what you think?

Too Faced products are available now at Debenhams.

Beauty: Too Faced X Kat Von D Better Together Collection #TooFacedxKatVonD

Posted on March 16, 2017

Hi Guys!

As soon as I heard there was a Too Faced X Kat Von D collaboration on the cards many moons ago, I literally couldn’t wait to see what Jerrod and Kat would come up with together. The Better Together collection isn’t that new as I’m writing this, but is still a recent launch at Too Faced (they’re just coming out with so many new products right now!) and it contains a fab selection of products from both brands…

This impossible collaboration began with an authentic friendship between the two founders, Kat and Jerrod – who love, respect and celebrate one another, realizing they are more alike than they are different. They have created a collection that proves nobody has to fail in order for you to succeed. Dozens of secret meetings and social media leaks later, the wait is finally over.

The Ultimate Eye Collection (£57.00) is definitely the stand out set from this collection. The box contains a heard shaped eyeshadow palette which actually splits in two to create two separate mini palettes. One half has been created by Kat Von D, and half by Too Faced – and it’s worth mentioning that each half uses each individual brands signature eyeshadow formula too.

I have to say I love that the palette breaks in half (you can re-attach it easily as it’s magnetised) and I just think it’s such a fun and interesting concept – as well as being practical if you only want to use one half of the palette at a time.

Too Faced’s side includes six heart shaped pans in some very pretty, easy to wear shades. I’m not head over heels excited about this shade selection to be honest, but I do think they’re nice, and definitely wearable  –

  • BFF – a matte cream.
  • Friendspiration – a warm bronze gold shimmer.
  • Power couple – a deep bronze with gold glitter.
  • Lovely – a baby pink matte.
  • Heart of Gold – a light gold shimmer which almost has a hint of green.
  • Better Together – a muted plum glitter.

And Kat’s side includes six bold and intense shades, which are definitely representative of the Kat Von D brand. Personally, I prefer these overall compared to the Too Faced half. I think the shade choice is really unusual and interesting. The shades are –

  • Yours – a matte grey.
  • Devotion – a matte black.
  • Darling – a mid silver shimmer.
  • Swoon – an intense metallic red.
  • Por Vida – a bright white matte.
  • Lovestruck – a nude peach shimmer.

The Ultimate Eye Collection also contains a full sized Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, and a full sized Kat Von D Tattoo Liner.

The Cheek & Lip Makeup Bag Set (£33.00) contains the cutest two-sided collectible mini makeup bag, with one side dedicated to each brand. Kat’s side has a black base and features her cat, Piaf, and Too Faced’s side is a sparkly pink featuring Jerrod’s dog, Clover. This sweet little makeup pouch also holds a selection of mini favourites from both brands, including some new and exclusive shades.

Too Faced have included a deluxe mini Candlelight Glow Highlighter in Rosy Glow, which is perfect for creating a soft-focus highlight and glow, as well as a deluxe mini Love Flush Blush featuring a long-wear, high pigment formula in the new and exclusive in-your-face pink shade So Happy Together.

Kat has chosen a couple of lip products from her brand, including a deluxe mini Everlasting Love Liquid Lipstick in the new shade XO, which is a deep intense burgundy red, and a deluxe mini Studded Kiss Lipstick offering bold pigment and long wear in the new shade Muse, which is a mid nude with a hint of shimmer.

And lastly, for those on a budget that would still like to snap up something from the collection, the Mascara and Liner Duo (£18.00) is the most affordable option, and contains two deluxe mini-sized, best-selling eye products from both brands –

Too Faced’s Better Than Sex Mascara is definitely a must have if you don’t own it already. This mascara promises 1,944% more volume, which is insane! And since trying out these products, I’m a new covert to Kat Von D’s Tattoo Liner, which has an ultra-precise brush tip and gives 24-hour waterproof wear.

The Too faced X Kat Von D collection is available now exclusively at Debenhams.

Were you as excited about this collaboration as I was? I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Beauty News & Gossip 20/02/2017: Illamasqua, Z Palette, Maybelline & More!

Posted on February 20, 2017

Hi Guys!

It’s been at least a couple of weeks since my last Beauty News update and literally SO much has happened since then. Read on to find out my highlights of the latest beauty news and gossip…

So first up, Illamasqua have taken a stand against Trump and fascism – and I’m not surprised at all. If any brand was going to do it, I think most would have predicted it to be Illamasaqua. Their ‘Anti-Fascism Pledge’ states that they ‘will never knowingly sell products to people who support President Trump’s values’ – and though I know many people will take the side of ‘this is just makeup, Illamasqua should be neutral’, I personally disagree and I love that Illamasqua are standing up publicly for what they believe in. What do you think?

In other news, you’ve probably heard by now about the recent Z Palette drama. If not, to cut a long story short, basically Z Palette have brought out a new electronic device for de-potting product, which people questioned and criticised on Instagram, and rather than replying politely and dealing with their potential customers concerns, whoever was looking after Z Palette’s Instagram went a little bit completely crazy and started spewing out insults like they were going out of fashion, leaving a lot of people very unhappy. It seems obvious that a brand should always deal with any criticism, not matter how harsh, constructively, carefully, and always treat people with respect on social sites. I think they’ve just managed to lose a LOT of customers.

Ok so let’s take a look at some exciting new and upcoming launches now. This MAC Rolerwheel Liquid Eyeliner really caught my eye this week, and I think the idea could actually be amazing if it actually works. The little roller wheel is in the style of a pizza cutter, with the wheel applying a continuous line of eyeliner. I can’t wait to try these when it launches – I think it’s either going to end up being a massive hit or a complete flop.

And following from the L’Oreal X Beauty & The Beast collaboration, it looks like Lorac will be collaborating with the upcoming Pirates of the Carribean movie. The packaging looks pretty awesome and I’m looking forward to finding out about the products, hopefully sooner rather than later.

Jeffree Star has also recently launched his latest palette – the Androgyny palette has been in the works for a long time now, and Jeffree has been hinting about it for months. Now it’s been revealed though, I I have to say feel a bit underwhelmed. I’m not sure what I was expecting exactly but I just feel this is a bit ‘meh’. What do you think?

And on that note Jeffree has also hinted on Twitter that a highlighter palette is also in the works – now this does excite me and I can’t wait to see what that looks like!

It also looks like metallic lip finishes are going to be a big thing this year. After what seems like an eternity of matte liquid lipsticks being at the forefront of trends, there’s now a load of brands coming up with intensely pigmented metallic finish lip products. Smashbox have now launched their Be Legendary Liquid Pigments across the pond, and I think the silver and blue shades look pretty awesome.

And for those on more of a budget, Maybelline will also be launching a Metallic Lipsticks collection in July. I’m not overly wowed by the look of these swatches, but maybe they’re fab in real life? I’m looking forward to finding out.

And of course MAC had to get in on the game with their own Metallic Lipsticks – and I have to say these look pretty stunning – I hope they look as good on the lips as they do on the bullet.

Anastasia are also bringing out new glow kit with Nicole Guerriero – the shades look really pretty, but I think most of them would be too dark for my super fair skin unfortunately.

Too Faced has some amazing looking products coming out in March too. There’s a massive Natural Love eyeshadow palette, three high shine Love Light Highlighters, and five new shades of Melted Matte lipsticks. I need to get my hands on those highlighters!

There’s also buzz that Too Faced will be launching some sort of holographic collection. Owner Jerrod shared some metallic pastel swatches recently which look so pretty!

On the same note, I also had to mention the upcoming BH Cosmetics BackLight Highlighter Palette. We don’t really hear much of BH Cosmetics in the UK (but they are available at Beauty Bay in case you were wondering) These swatches just look so beautiful – very much like the Kat Von D highlighter palette but with a larger range of shades. This is something I’ll definitely be picking up when I can get my hands on it.

Trendmood have also hinted at a collaboration between Pat Mcgrath and Kim Kardashian – I wonder what they could be up to?

And lastly, I was thrilled to hear that some of my favourite beauty bloggers have teamed up with L’Oreal Paris to launch a range brand new Matte Addition lipsticks. What’s especially awesome about this is that most of these aren’t your typical ‘big bloggers’ that are pretty much household names these days. These girls are ‘micro bloggers’ and just as amazing in their own right as some of the biggest names in the industry. It’s makes me so happy that smaller bloggers are now being recognised – well done girls!

Beauty: Limited Edition Too Faced X Skinnydip Collaboration Makeup Bag Set

Posted on February 7, 2017

Hi Guys!

Us bloggers are very lucky to receive some amazing products to try out and share with our readers, and of course, some of these products will appeal to us more than others. So when the post arrived yesterday and I opened one of the packages to find a Too Faced X Skinnydip makeup bag, my heart did a little dance!

Too Faced and Skinnydip are two of my favourite ever brands, and them teaming up for a collaboration is just a match made in heaven if you ask me!

The new limited edition Too Faced X Skinnydip makeup bag is a good sized bag that’s big enough to fit all your essentials in (including your favourite Too Faced palette) and it’s made with a clear rubber material with glitter particles in it. It’s covered in pictures of Too Faced makeup, hearts, bows and Too Faced’s owners Jerrod Blandino’s super cute dog Clover. It also has a gold zip with the gold Skinnydip logo on the side.

Inside the bag you get a Too Faced original Chocolate Bar palette, a full sized Better Than Sex Mascara, a super cute mini Love Flush Blusher in shade Justify My Love, and a mini Melted Chocolate Lipstick in shade Honey.

The set has a value of £92.00 but costs a very reasonable £50.00. It’s a limited edition and will only be available until 09/02/17 directly from Too Faced. Or, you can buy the makeup bag on it’s own now for £14.00 at Skinnydip where there are two slightly different styles available.

Beauty News & Gossip 11/01/17: Jeffree Star, Huda Beauty, Too Faced & More!

Posted on January 11, 2017

Hi Guys!

It’s been quite a while since I published my last Beauty News & Gossip post, but you guys have told me that you like them, so I thought I’d start up the series again. I’m aiming to post on a weekly basis covering all the latest hot beauty news, influencer gossip and exciting new releases – enjoy!

Ok so I woke up this morning and the first thing I saw on my social feeds is that Jeffree Star has destroyed a $5.5k Chanel bag on his Youtube channel. Him and his BFF Manny MUA got together to cut up some makeup products with hot knives (as you do) just for LOLs, and Jeffree decided to take it one step further and mutilate a Chanel Boy bag from his collection. By the looks of things this has been one of his most viewed videos in such a short space of time since publishing, and comments have been falling in one of two very distinct camps – Jeffree fans are saying (very rightly so) that ‘it’s his money he can do what he likes with it’ but people are also saying (again very rightly so) comments along the lines of ‘people are starving in this world, and he chooses to do this..’. I totally agree that he can do what he likes with his own things, but he might as well be burning a $5k wad of cash for the sake of gaining views, which in my opinion is in very poor taste – but then would we expect anything else from Jeffree Star?? I’d be interested to hear your thoughts on this.

In other Jeffree Star news, he’s also recently announced that his much anticipated Androgyny Palette will be launching in March. The teasers above shows his second palette has a deep pink textured casing with gold lettering, and the eyeshadows look like they’re going to be a big hit with fans – there appears to be a range of intensely coloured warm matte shades included (judging by the colours Jeffree is wearing above) and I think it will be a total sell out.

You may have also noticed recently that Manny MUA is collaborating with Maybelline on their Big Shot Mascara campaign. I noticed this on Twitter when the ad first launched and didn’t really give it too much thought. Then it popped up again on Facebook via a BBC news article, I noticed there were thousands and thousands of comments, so thought I’d take a moment to look through. Oh my gosh, the public has had such a strong reaction to this, I really was quite shocked. It was very divided, with a disturbing amount of people being absolutely horrified that a man is wearing makeup (I mean, really?), but luckily there were plenty of positive comments too which appeared to outnumber the negative. It really does worry me how people can be so close minded – we’re in 2017 for Christ’s sake! I think it’s a great collab, and Manny is the perfect influencer to team up with Maybelline – maybe this just seems obvious to me though because I’m part of the beauty community? I don’t know, I think attitudes are changing, but we still have definitely a long way to go. I also think it’s a very clever marketing move on Maybelline’s part – what better way to get your beauty brand talked about across every media channel than to do something ‘controversial’ like having a male in full makeup as the star of the campaign – what do you think?

What would a news and gossip post be without Jaclyn Hill!? It looks like Jaclyn is coming out with another new collaboration within the next two months. She’s not giving away much at the moment but we know it’s an eyeshadow palette, and it’s in collaboration with a brand – maybe Becca again? Or maybe someone new?

I never managed to get my hands on the Huda Beauty Rose Gold Eyeshadow palette – though it looks stunning I just couldn’t justify the expense. She’s now teasing fans with the outer packaging of her upcoming Highlighter Palette – I can’t wait to see what’s inside, I bet it’s going to be stunning!

And lastly when it comes to influencers, it looks like Too Faced’s lasted collab will be with Youtuber Kandee Johnson. As a big Too faced fan I can’t wait to see what they’ll come up with together 😀

On to new products now, and you may have noticed that Too Faced is busting out new products like there’s no tomorrow right now, and I’ve just caught wind of yet another gorgeous looking launch – their beautiful Lovelight Highlighters will be coming in March this year – don’t they look gorgeous!

Anastasia has also just launched their first Lip Palette, which is perfect for those that like to experiment with lip shades and change their look frequently. This palette contains a large selection of lipsticks as well as primary colours and black and white shades, so you can pretty much come up with any colour imaginable! This is available now on the Anastasia US site but not yet on the Anastasia UK site.

After visiting New York last year on a press trip, and spending rather a lot of time in Sephora, I discovered Milk Makeup. I have their Cooling Water and Holographic Stick, both of which I love. And I recently heard about their brand new Blur Stick – it’s just now launched at Sephora, and it promised to blur skin’s imperfections to give you a ‘real life filter effect’. I really love the sound of this.

The brand that only a few months ago brought us the original Unicorn Makeup brushes (I have them but can’t bring myself to use them!) has recently announced an upcoming collection of Mermaid makeup brushes! Above you can see the original artist sketches for the brushes, it also says they’re now going into production, so watch this space for news of the launch date.

And oh my gosh, the Lancome Rose Collection is EVERYTHING. The highlighter is shaped like an actual rose and it’s just so beautiful! There’s also a limited edition brush to go with it, as well as a palette and a few other products in the collection. These are all available now on the Lancome US site. I can’t wait till it’s available in the UK!

And lastly, I also wanted to mention that that Kat Von D Pastel Goth Palette is available now at Sephora – as with all of Kat’s products this palette looks pretty awesome, it’s going on my wish list right now 🙂

I’d love to hear what you think about the latest news and gossip? I hope you enjoyed my post xxx

Christmas: Stunning Luxury Beauty & Fragrance Gifts

Posted on December 20, 2016

Hi Guys!

I’ve just finished the final instalment of my Christmas beauty gift guides – and I think I’ve definitely saved the best till last! This guide is all about luxury fragrance, makeup and skincare, where no price is too high. I hope you enjoy!

Starting with the Benefit Blushin’ Babe Set – this limited edition palette contains five of Benefit’s famous cheek & face powders, as well as signature tips and tricks leaflet to show you how to wear them, and also a They’re Real Mascara, Eyeliner and Watt’s up highlighter. Everything in this set is in mini form, making an affordable way to try before committing to purchasing full sized products.

For fragrance, Annick Goutal Les Absolus Rose Oud EDP is a stunning luxury scent, described as a new interpretation of some the finest raw materials in perfumery – Agarwood and Turkish rose, Les Absolus Rose Oud is both a unique and sensual fragrance. The perfume combines coriander and cardamom for a spicy freshness, leading to a sensual heart of Turkish rose. Oud and incense leave a woody, mysterious and enveloping trail, rounding out this captivating scent.

Another beautiful luxury scent is Elie Saab Nuit Noor – a perfume of contrasts. Beirut, the muse behind this new fragrance, is an icon of modernity in the Middle East and a city revered for its captivating contrasts. One of these is its light – noor in Arabic – that reflects off the sea and city, to set the velvety night sky aglow. Light shines through in a honeyed bouquet of soft Rose made still more radiant by the essence of Ylang-ylang. And, to conjure the night, an accord of spicy, woody notes run throughout the composition in Black Pepper and Incense, across a majestic backdrop of Indonesian Patchouli. This scent is simply stunning!

And Serge Lutens Baptême du feu EDP – translating to Baptism of Fire, this woody scent is a wonderful unisex accord, interestingly inspired by combat. Sitting somewhere between good and evil, this is a fiery scent with addictive notes of gingerbread, powdery notes, tangerine, castoreum and osmanthus. A must try for fans of Serge Lutens.

And I had to include the stunning, Penhaligon’s Oud de Nil EDP – part of Penhaligon’s Trade Routes Collection, Oud de Nil is most definitely a tribute to Ancient Egypt in all its fragrant glory. It takes you on an olfactory cruise down the Nile, with crisp notes of grapefruit and bergamot combined with rich jasmine, oud and papyrus. Not as heavy as you’d expect, this delicate fragrance is perfect for both day and night.

Back to makeup now, with the YSL Extremely Set – this stunning palette arrives housed in a glossy red case which can be re-used after the products are gone. Inside is a beautiful make-up palette offering enough products to give a full eyes, lips and cheeks makeover – there are four eyeshadows, a highlighter, two blushers, three lip shades, a lip gloss, a mini mascara and mini brushes included.

The NARS ASOS Exclusive Orgasm Blush & Illuminator Set really needs no introduction – with Orgasm being one of the most iconic blush shades ever made, this gorgeous set contains a full sized Orgasm Blush, as well as a mini Illuminator, in striking limited edition packaging.

On to skincare now with a couple more high end treats – the 111Skin Space Anti Age Emulsion is a powerful moisturiser that aims to combat signs of ageing and keep skin hydrated, leaving you with a radiant, revitalised complexion. Enriched with vitamins to repair skin, the luxurious moisturiser promotes collagen production and contains a high concentration of hyaluronic acid to retain moisture levels and plump skin for a youthful look.

And the 111Skin Space Anti Oxidant Booster utilises an advanced, anti-ageing formula that delivers an extra boost of vital antioxidants to revive your skin and protect from environmental aggressors. The concentrated blend combines vitamin C with flavonoid rich Grape seed extract to prevent premature ageing and create a defence barrier against daily pollution.

And what would luxury beauty gifting be without a high end lipstick? The YSL Rouge Pur Couture Matte Lipsticks would make fantastic Christmas gifts or stocking fillers. These beautifully packaged lipsticks promise to saturate lips with intense, stay-true colour, with medium to full coverage, and a radiant, satin finish for up to 6 hours wear.

The Nude By Nature Complexion Essentials Starter Kit is a fantastic set for those interested in trying out Nude by Nature products – which really are underrated. This set contains a selection of mini sized base products, giving you the perfect opportunity to get a feel for the brand. This beautifully presented set includes a Perfecting primer, Perfecting Concealer, Loose Powder Foundation, Loose Powder Bronzer, Translucent Loose Finishing Powder and an application brush – all housed in a leather look and rose gold case.

I just had to include the Too Faced Grande Hotel Cafe in this guide – this gorgeous set opens to reveal three Christmas coffee scented palettes – Peppermint Mocha, Gingerbread Coffee, and Eggnog Latte. Each palette contains six eyeshadows in both matte and shimmer finishes, one large face product pan (either a blush or bronzer) and the set also contains a deluxe size Better Than Sex Mascara and a step-by-step how-to Glamour Guide with three beauty looks to get you started.

And finally back to NARS again. This is the gorgeous NARS Blame It On Nars Cheek Palette – this is a stunning exclusive palette containing four cult-favorite shades: the gilded Satellite of Love Highlighter, two limited-edition provocative pinks—Day Dream and New Attitude—and the iconic burnished Casino Bronzing Powder, paired with a mini Kabuki Ita Brush and expressive keepsake palette for literally turning cheeks!
