When I was a kid, my older cousin passed down her large sticker book collection which was one of my most cherished possessions. I had fun trading stickers with friends at school, adding them to my book and seeing how many colors and textures I could incorporate. Today I have no idea where that book is but the Too Faced Totally Cute Palette evokes fond childhood memories.
The palette comes with blank pink casing and two sheets of stickers so you can unleash your creative side and decorate the packaging yourself!
It also comes with a step-by-step glamour guide should you need a little inspiration.
Like many of the other Too Faced Palettes I own, this one also has a fabulous array of eye-catching pigments from everyday neutrals, deep jewel tones and brights. There is also a mix of creamy mattes and finely milled shimmers to enhance, define and highlight.
The last row is great for fall with deep matte brown, bold blue and dark purple. The next row contains velvety caramel orange (which is a great crease or transition color), bright neon green and a fresh pop of pink. The larger pigments in the champagne and cream range make great lid or highlight shades for a splash of radiance.
The pigments are smooth and easy to intensify, layer and blend for long-wear color that doesn’t crease or fade when used with a good primer. You can combine these hues in interesting combos to create unique looks and they compliment other palettes in my collection beautifully. The quality lives up to what I expect from Too Faced and there are no parabens, sulfates, phthalates or gluten.
When applying the shimmers I recommend patting them on rather than swiping to avoid fall-out and achieve saturated color pay-off. This little palette is limited edition and offers great versatility and contrast. The hard shell also makes it suitable for travel.
It seems that Kylie Jenner lips are all the rage nowadays and Too Faced has recently released the Lip Injection Glosses in a range of subtle shades. The formula is infused with nourishing botanicals like avocado and jojoba plus plumping agents for volume and softness. Although I don’t really need fuller lips I appreciate the pouty shine and moisture.
Surprisingly this formula makes lips temporarily tingle and sting as part of the plumping process so be prepared for it! The texture is quite thick so you only need one or two layers and although it is a tad sticky the extra adhesion helps the sheer color stay on longer and resist transfer a bit better. The shades featured here are: Like a Boss (lavender) and Spice Girl (nude).
