NEW Too Faced Spring Makeup | Lipstick, Brush & Highlight

Too Faced Cosmetics New Spring Makeup Launches Review Swatches Lipstick Brush Highlighter

Too Faced cosmetics can do no wrong in my eyes.  I've worn their cruelty free makeup pretty much since I started properly wearing makeup and I'm never disappointed with their products.  Over the years, I've seen them smash it with every new release each season and this spring is certainly no exception.

I've been trying out some of the new products from them recently and to say I'm impressed is an understatement.  Let me tell you why...


Too Faced Candlelight Glow Highlighter in Warm Glow

The first product that I've been loving is Too Faced's Candlelight Glow which is a highlighting powder duo that comes in a handy compact.  There are two shades; Rosy Glow which is a pink toned highlight thats been around for a while now and the new Warm Glow which is the shade that I have.

Warm Glow has a champagne side and a peach side; together they create a gorgeous light golden shade that leaves the complexion looking subtly sun kissed and radiant.  It is a highlighter that works so well when used alongside a bronzer for a just back from the Mauritius glow.

The Too Faced Candlelight Glow highlighters are absolutely fabulous at giving the skin a soft, radiant appearance, inspired by the romantic light in a candle lit room.  They contain Too Faced's advanced photolite technology which diffuses and refracts the light to soften and diffuse the appearance of skin imperfections.  I have to say, I'd agree with this as the powder is so finely milled and it blends effortlessly into the skin.

The powder doesn't cake, cling to the skin or emphasise my large pores like some highlighters do and it works perfectly on my oily skin.  With that in mind, I'd say that this would be suitable for all skin types and therefore an ideal gift for someone too, not least because the packaging is so lush!

The secondary packaging is so beautiful with its rose gold and gold ombre box and the outer packaging of the compact is so pretty in gold, cream and pink with a generous mirror that takes up the full inside of the compact lid.  The powder is divided into two inside with a chandelier and the Too Faced logo embossed into it.

Theres a 'How-To Glamour Guide' inside the box which shows the way that you can use the two powders to create three signature looks; 'Inner Light,' 'Light Of Day' and 'Night Light' which is great for those who are new to using highlighter or for those who want some inspiration for a new look to try out.

The two powders can be used individually or swirled together which is how I prefer to use them.  I usually apply this powder using a tapered brush to my cheek bones, cupids bow and down the centre of my nose and find that it adds instant luminosity to my skin.

I've had so many people asking me which highlighter I'm using lately and of course, its this one!  It really lifts the cheek bones and gives a youthful, lit from within glow.


Too Faced Mr Right Perfect Powder Brush

Another product that I've been loving is the Too Faced Mr Right Perfect Powder Brush which is actually the first brush that I've ever used from Too Faced and I can already tell you that it'll not be my last.  I'll definitely be buying some other brushes from Too Faced at my earliest opportunity!

This brush is so incredibly soft thanks to its bristles which are made from luxurious synthetic hair.  It is really versatile in that it can be used both wet and dry for foundation, powder, bronzer, blush, setting powder and anything else!


Too Faced Mr Right Perfect Powder Brush

Having used this brush every time that I've applied my makeup since I got it, I can say without doubt that the Mr Right Perfect Powder Brush is literally perfect for powder, specifically bronzer.  It is quite a large powder brush so it is great for covering large areas but because of its tapered shape, it is absolutely ideal for getting in underneath the cheekbones and applying bronzer to subtly contour the cheeks.  It picks up product really well and enables you to apply them using a light or heavy hand, building the colour up as you go.

It is definitely the best brush that I've ever used to contour with as the one that I was using previously was great for smaller areas such as down the sides of the nose but I found it to be too defining for the cheek bones for a natural, everyday look.  In fact, it is probably my favourite brush out of my whole collection; the quality is far superior, even surpassing that of my MAC and Zoeva brushes.


Too Faced Le Creme Colour Drenched Lipstick

One of my favourite products from Too Faced are their La Crème Colour Drenched Lipsticks which are so moisturising and hydrating.  They're a much loved product by people all over the world and are often raved about, not least for their beautiful brushed gold packaging.

Even their secondary packaging is cute with a pink illustrated box.

Too Faced have released 10 new shades recently, of which I have three; Sugar Daddy which is a Nude Rose shade, Clueless which is Shimmering Cotton Candy shade and Topless which is an Apricot Nude colour.

Each lipstick contains White Lotus Flower Extract which is an antioxidant with hydrating, soothing and lip conditioning properties, as well as Power Peptides which are thought to stimulate collagen and help the lips to appear smoother.

What I love about the Too Faced website is that the show a swatch of all of their lipsticks on both a light skintone and a dark skin tone which can really help shoppers to get an idea of what the colour may look like on them.  All too often are lipsticks shown on on skin tone or the other and I think it can make shopping really difficult if you're on the opposite end of the spectrum.

These lipsticks apply like a dream.  They're so pigmented and have a gorgeous creamy colour pay off.  The shimmery shade does feel a little bitty on the lips to begin with as there is a lot of shimmer in it.  However all three of the shades feel very hydrating and they're really comfortable to wear.

They're pretty long lasting on the lips and they wear off evenly, even after eating and drinking so I don't need to worry about immediately reapplying them.  They feel comfortable to wear, not sticky at all and they don't bleed so I never have to worry about the colour migrating across my face!

My favourite of the bunch has to be the Too Faced Le Crème Colour Drenched Lipstick in Sugar Daddy.  It has a beautiful warm brown hint to it which creates the most beautiful nude shade that adds warmth to my complexion.  I love the way this shade looks against my skin.

Like with the other shades, it is opaque in one swipe and its hydrating formula actually leaves a subtle glossy sheen to my lips which catches the light beautifully and makes them look fuller.

Topless is a little too close to my skintone for me to wear on its own during the day but it looks fantastic with a really dark smokey eye on a night out, or when layered with a darker lip pencil during the day.  I've actually been patting it onto the centre of my lips when I've been wearing darker nude lipsticks for more of an ombre, highlighted effect which I really love the results of.  Using it in this way is fabulous as it helps to create a fuller look on the lips.

The shade Clueless is a little too shimmery for me but if you're into your 90s makeup looks then this could be the frosty, shimmery lipstick you've been looking for.  I love that the pink has a blue undertone to it as it makes my teeth look really white!  This is definitely a fun shade that catches the light beautifully.

After looking at the full shade selection online, I really think that Too Faced do a lipstick shade for everyone!

  20. Candlelight Glow is so pretty, and you look gorgeous in the photos so I definitely fancy buying that! The lippies look great too, but I wore enough frosted pink lipstick back in the 90s, so I think I'll give that shade a miss ;-) Sugar Daddy looks fab though.
