In honor of the “Kindness is Sexy Contest”, which ends on the 27th at 11:59 PM, I’ved decided to be ambitious and write a post a day. Don’t forget to enter!!!
You can’t be a product junkie without Too Faced Cosmetics Romantic Eye Palette in your collection. For just $38.00 you get some of the best colors that the market currently has to offer. Normally, i wouldn’t even suggest such a large brand name as i love handmade products and support small businesses. I hold big brands to much higher standards, and Too Faced has surpassed every single one of them. I love their daytime look and have been rocking it out for the past couple of days.
As i’ve mentioned before i have issues with colors staying on my eyes- especially with the higher end brands. So to test it, i put it on right before going to bed, to see just how long it could stay. A full twelve hours later, and it was still going strong. Of course it helps that i took their advice and used the Too Faced Primer, as well. For those of you just starting out in the world of makeup, this product gives you different look cards to try and perfect, but it’s also a ton of fun to play around with. I have a really special event coming up in October- my favorite cousin is getting married- and i totally think that these colors would make her baby blues pop out so well. (She won’t let me do her makeup. I did it once when we were like ten, after having watched my mom do it for so many years…i would post the photo if i didn’t think i’d be killed in my sleep for it! ) Still, for brides and other romantic events- engagement parties, dates- the colors are so gorgeous. Luckily, it doesn’t take a makeup artist to make these look good- all you have to do is read their directions. Practice them! I’ve been doing it everyday the past week or so, and i can tell that i’m getting better at it. (Since I’m so pale, darker colors realllllly look drastic on me, and while I did makeup with my former job- it was typically a one color application. I love playing around with the palate and creating different looks- and also looking on youtube for other adaptations of the different looks! )
The Packaging is GORGEOUS- and not overly excessive. It comes in a really sturdy case. A+
The fact that you get nine generous shades of eye shadow also gets this product an A+.
While it’s a little pricey, if you had to pay for these shadows individually, it would be way more expensive.
It is especially great for people like me, who are not skilled in doing their own makeup, but enjoy learning and practicing — i especially love the eye in the picture and wish i could recreate that look!
Overall, the product gets an A because of it’s cost.
