FGW: Why Be Pretty When You Can Be Gorgeous?

October 15, 2008 at 9:12 am 4 comments

That’s Too Faced Cosmetics’ mantra, and I can totally get behind that. They don’t want women to just look gorgeous, they want women to feel gorgeous, and that’s a message that sells. Since their inception 10 years ago they have skyrocketed to the top of the cosmetics wish list, taking their place with other faves like MAC and Chanel.

One of the things I love Too Faced for is their ability to be fun and kicky but remain classy. As I get older and finally grow into my adult responsibility (sort of), I try to evolve and keep my style on course with my age. Too Faced offers products that help me look smartly put together while still having a little crazy fun.

One of their products that helps me do that is Starry Eyed Liquid Liner ($17.50). Liquid liners packed with micro glitter, these are perfect for a little extra pop during the day, or a lot at night. A quick pass of Gold Digger right at your lash line gives a brightening look to your typical bronze shadow. It gave my eyes an open happy look, without being over the top. One swipe gives a twinkling shine without screaming “HELLO, I’M WEARING GLITTER!”, or add a few more layers for a bold, eye catching disco ball effect. Unlike a lot of micro-glitter eye products, Starry Eyed doesn’t irritate my eyes, and I appreciate that I can wear something I love without my eyes ending up goopy and itchy for once. Is it the addition of calming cucumber or soothing carrot that does it? Heck if I know, but I can tell you it’s a fantastic formula all around! It’s not quite as fast drying as you hope, but a quick shot of cool air from my hair dryer takes care of that. Be sure to let it dry all the way before opening your peepers wide, or you’ll end up with glitter on your upper eyelid all day long because the staying power is awesome.

Too Faced has a perfect product in their Mirror Mirror Lip Gloss ($16). Beautiful tints of color with amazing shine. It seems like it should be thick and sticky, especially to those of us accustomed to MAC’s Lipglass, but the light, smooth formula has not a hint of stick to be found. Super shiny and gorgeous, one glance in the mirror makes me feel ready to strut my stuff, especially with a color name like “Damn I’m Hot”. Yes, yes I am, and don’t you forget it honey .These are so easy to throw on over a lip liner for more color, and the light scent with lack of an added flavor makes them a real pleasure to wear.

Holiday party season is swiftly approaching. These are an easy way to add a little bit of glamor to your party outfits. Or your work outfits. Or your grocery shopping outfits for that matter. Both Starry Eyed and Mirror Mirror are available in mini sets ($25) so you can try them out without choosing just one color.  Also check out their bronzer in Snow Bunny ($25), a color formulated for wintertime bronzing. Seriously, has anyone else out there even thought of offering a winter bronzer?  Nope, Too Faced FTW!

Thank you Too Faced, for helping us be awesome and adult at the same time!

    I have to add that for $35 you can purchase the three bronzers in the “The Bronzed And The Beautiful” palette. You get Snow Bunny, Sun Bunny, and Pink Leopard and a beautiful little kabuki brush!

    Very nice reviews Mo. Gotta love being Too Faced!

    This stuff is really pretty. I keep meaning to try something by Too Faced. I think they make the Shadow Insurance stuff I want to try.

    Nice write up Mo. I’m intrigued- and usually afraid of glitter.

    I’m absolutely dying to try the LIQUIF-EYE pallette set. Oh, yum!!!

    Great review Mo. I SO need to place an order with Too Faced. I haven’t tried any of their products yet (ducks and hides…) but I’m really lusting over their Mirror Mirror gloss in Envy Me. And yes, it’s probably partially that name. I love names that are girl-power friendly! 🙂
