Too Faced is such an amazing brand, even though they are on the pricey side, I just can’t help myself. I picked up a couple items from Ulta and received a Melted lipstick for free with my purchase (so definitely check out all of the deals before finalizing your order!)
I don’t really wear primers, just because the ones that I have used just don’t sit well on my skin and leave me feeling greasy but I heard good things about this primer, so I wanted to try it out (I haven’t yet, but I’ll elaborate on why I wanted to get it). It’s a “replenishing” primer, so it hydrates, smoothes and brightens skin for a dewy, healthy looking finish. My skin type has changed slightly, I’m not as dry as I used to be (I had bad dry patches) but I do still feel like my skin is dry and needs some extra hydration, so I’m hoping that this primer does the trick without feeling icky on my skin. Too Faced says that you can wear this on its own for a dewy, healthy finish, which I think is super cool because foundation can be too much sometimes.
So here’s the free gift that I received, since I spent over $25 on Too Faced at Ulta. I believe this is a deluxe sample size and I got the shade Chihuahua (which I think is the only one they were offering). I do have another one of these melted lipsticks, in a bright pink so I think this color would better suit me since it’s more of a nude. Check out the swatches below! The color is so beautiful, I almost felt guilty using so much for a swatch.
And lastly, the show stopper. I love the Better Than Sex mascara, so I just had to get the waterproof version (I’ve heard that waterproof mascara holds a curl better – is that true? Who knows.) I love love LOVE the packaging. Too Faced has such amazing packaging, I honestly can’t get over it. That’s one of the reasons why I love their brand, they care about how their products look and how they’re presented. The original Better Than Sex is in a pink aluminum-like tube without any texture. This one is in a gorgeous blue color with a super cool raised water drop texture on it, it’s drool worthy! The mascara tube is a little bit “heavy” but that just makes me feel like it’s made out of high quality materials (am I just sounding like a goof? Probably.)
I have used it a couple times, and I do really like it. The original Better Than Sex that I was using was an old deluxe sample and I noticed that it did tend to flake and didn’t have too much volume or color payoff, so I’m super glad that this one works better than the one I was using. I highly recommend it if you’re looking for a new lengthening & volumizing mascara – it’s flipping fantastic.
Hope you enjoyed my little haul 🙂 I’ve been spending way too much money on makeup lately and I do have a Colourpop shipment coming in soon, so I guess stay tuned for a Colourpop haul in the future weeks.
