Too Faced Life’s A Festival Collection Review

While it’s not the newest makeup collection in the Too Faced line, but I wouldn’t be able to live with myself if I didn’t share my love for the Life’s A Festival Collection. With summer just around the corner, now is the time to live your best life with Too Faced makeup.

For a little eye shine, the Life’s A Festival Eye Shadow Palette has everything you want. The shadows are a mix of colour and a few colour changing hues that provide endless fun opportunities. I love looking at all of the inspiration for looks on Instagram, because these colours are seriously stunning.

Unfortunately, my Rainbow Strobe Highlighter broke in the mail, so I wasn’t able to take advantage of the beautiful rainbow shine with special Magic Rainbow Strobing Brush. Luckily there are other options for highlighting. I also had the Unicorn Horn Highlighting Stick. This creamy stick provides a sheer and glossy finish. I prefer the look of powder highlighters better, but this stick worked in the meantime. It’s nice that you can just really targeted highlighting with this stick versus a loose brush.

The Magic Crystal Lip Topper is probably the most surprising of everything I have. I didn’t expect such high shine on my lips with this glossy finish. This Holographic finish has serious metallic shine that can be added to any lipstick or worn solo. It changes everything I knew about lipstick and my favourite shades.

Last, but not least, my favourite product, Too Faced Unicorn Tears Bronzer. This shimmering bronzer is the perfect amount of colour and shine. The silver sparkle plays on your cheeks in just the right way. It’s even day time appropriate sparkle that I’ve been wearing to work. I could add on an extra layer though for evening sparkle.

So prepare for summer with more sparkle and a lot of Too Faced!

Foundation Most Wanted

I really want to be the girl who wears nothing on her skin, but I will admit that I love foundation. I love the way the perfect foundation makes your skin feel. I love the way my face looks after I have applied foundation, but before adding blush or bronzer. I love the magic that the right foundation can do for the way I feel. Here are 3 foundations that have been putting a little pep in my step for the past few months.

It Cosmetics CC+ Cream – Forget applying moisturizer and serum and foundation every morning. This CC Cream is all of those things in one. This cream is really thick, but don’t worry it doesn’t feel heavy. Plus you can skip a few steps, so you aren’t adding on layers. When you get a product that makes multiple promises, usually coverage takes a backseat. It Cosmetics seems to have thought of everything. This cream also provides full colour coverage. It almost makes my skin look too good.  How often can you say that?

Too Faced Peach Perfect Foundation – There is nothing bad to saying about this foundation. It goes on a bit thick, but unlike some others it never feels heavy. It’s matte, so as soon as it’s dry you don’t even feel it on your skin. It can cover any discolouration, while blending into your skin, so it doesn’t look like you are wearing a lot of makeup. It lasts all day long, and even into the night, meaning I don’t have to worry about my skin.

Tarte Clay Stick Foundation – I’ve used a lot of stick foundations in the past, but this one felt different. This felt like any other luxury liquid foundation, but in stick format. When you swipe this stick on your skin, it’s that same soft feel. I definitely recommend investing in a good brush with this for serious blending. You are going to need it! I got the buffer brush from Tarte and it made a world of different. This thick formula will give you an amazing airbrush, magazine worthy finish, but it’s not a quick fix. You need to spend the time. The best part is that it’s also thick enough to be used as a concealer or even a contouring stick if you get the right shades. Bonus!
