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…
[otw_shortcode_quote border=”bordered” border_style=”bordered” background_color_class=”otw-silver-background” background_pattern=”otw-pattern-1″]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. [/otw_shortcode_quote]
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.
