You may have noticed that things have been a bit quiet on the blog lately – well I’ve moved house! It all happened a bit suddenly but we’re finally in our gorgeous new house, and I’ll have a post up shortly telling you all about it 🙂
Back to beauty now though – I am just LOVING all the new beauty releases that are launching lately, and I’m so glad that all the gorgeous Too Faced products I’ve been lusting over for God knows how many months have finally arrived in the UK. Let’s take a look at some of their newest products…
Starting with the Sketch Markers (£17.00) – I’ve been dying to get my hands on these from as soon as I first heard about them. As an eyeliner fan, I love anything that’s colourful, quirky and fun – and these Sketch Markers definitely tick all these boxes! Described an advanced liquid eyeliner inspired by Japanese Calligraphy Pens, the formula of these pen style eyeliners promises to create an exceptionally smooth, vivid, and waterproof line.
Firstly, the packaging is SO on point. These eyeliners are just super cute and really look like colouring pens, and have cute little heart shaped details on the lids which I love. The pens themselves have a typical flexible felt-pen style tip, which allows you to easily create very fine as well as thick lines.
Shade Candy Pink was actually more pigmented than I expected. I imagined it to be quite sheer and watery but luckily I was wrong. Now don’t get me wrong, these aren’t the most pigmented eyeliners I’ve ever used, but for a baby pink shade, I think this came out really well, as well as having a nice matte finish when dry. I really want to grab a few more of the coloured shades now – there are 12 to choose from which include pastels as well as brights, and I have my eye on shades Steel Blue and Deep Lilac next.
Next we have the Lip Injection Glossy Lip Gloss (£17.00) – Ok so you know when you buy a ‘lip plumping’ product, and you don’t really get your hopes up. You apply it, your lips tingle a bit and that’s it? I must admit I was kind of expecting that with the Lip Injection Glosses, but how wrong was I! I’m not even kidding you when I say my lips were visibly plumper – I mean you could actually easily tell they looked bigger. I was completely shocked!
The new Lip Injection Glosses come in six shades, of which I have two nudes – Angel Kisses, and Milkshake. Both are very sheer with just a tint of colour, and as I already said, they really do plump the lips – better than any other product I’ve tried so far!
And lastly the Melted Matte Lipsticks (£19.00) – I’m a big fan of Too Faced’s original Melted Lipsticks, so I couldn’t wait to try out their new Melted Mattes. These liquid lipsticks promise to glide over lips like a gloss but dry down to an ultra-matte opaque finish – and indeed they do exactly that!
The formula comes infused with a no-sting lip plumper and filler, to ensure the colour always looks rich, full, and kissable. I have shades Bend & Snap! and Who’s Zoomin Who, both you can see are fantastically well pigmented – the above swatches show them in the process of drying down, which only takes a couple of minutes. I’m in love with Who’s Zoomin Who, it’s just such an unusual, deep inky blue. I’m thinking of putting together a makeup look with this, and maybe the pink eyeliner? Let me know if you’d like to see that!
Overall I’m really impressed with Too faced’s latest selection of products – I can’t wait to try out some of their Christmas releases next, and word on the street is they’re collaborating with one of my favourite accessory brands, Skinnydip, in early 2017 – I’m really excited for that!
Too Faced products are available in the UK at Debenhams.
I hope you enjoyed my post xxx
