The new Too Faced concealer that I cannot live without

I’m always on the hunt for a good concealer as I struggle with dark circles under my eyes and nothing ever really covers them properly. Until now that is! I recently picked up the new Born this way, Super coverage concealer by Too Faced and let me tell you, it’s a game changer. I’ve been hearing nothing but good reviews for this product so of course I just had to try it out for myself.

This has been so popular since it’s launch that it’s now ranked number 2 in the world (after the famous Tarte Shape tape) and has everyone talking about it.

Packaging

First of all, I just have to mention the amount of product you get with this. The bottle is 15ml which is a really decent size for a concealer. It almost looks like a foundation bottle and is a slightly smaller version to the born this way foundation. Up until now I have been using the Revolution Pro concealer which only last for 5 minutes and it can be a bit a pain having to keep buying replacements. So, I’m loving the generous size of this product.

Coverage

This leads me to the main reason why I wanted to write this blog post. The coverage is INCREDIBLE.

The adaptor wand makes applying this concealer really easy and I’m finding that a little goes a long way. The head is a diamond shape which helps to sculpt out the under eye area and I’ve also been highlighting my face with it.

It is quite a thick consistency but it has a lovely silky texture and it doesn’t cake around the eyes. I like the way this product dries quickly and leaves a smooth finish too. It can even cover tattoos so that will give you an indication of what a wonder product this is. 

There are 20 shades to choose from and I went for ‘Snow’ as I like my concealer to be pretty light to try and combat the darkness as much as possible. In terms of price, this retails for £24 which I feel is fair for the quality and it will last quite a while considering you don’t need to use too much each time.

Final Verdict

I think that I’ve found myself a new favourite make up item with this and will definitely be re-purchasing it when I have finished the bottle. The coverage is so impressive and it’s making a huge difference to my finished make up looks and I’m so pleased I’ve finally found something that actually covers my dark circles! Thank you Too Faced make up gods! I’ve also been enjoying using it for contouring which has been equally as good.  You can buy Too Faced products directly from their website, in store, Debenhams or online retailer Cult Beauty.

The new metallic sparkle lipsticks by Too Faced

I am a complete magpie and anything sparkly always gets my immediate attention. So, when I discovered the brand new metallic sparkle lipsticks by Too Faced I just had to try them out!

Colour shades

There are 10 shades in the collection ranging from pretty pinks, purples and reds as well as some more daring colours such as blue and vivid purple. I was tempted to go with the gorgeous light pink shade called ‘Marcia Marcia Marcia’ but I chose ‘Miss Thing’, a pretty peachy nude shade instead. These 10 shades are inspired by the original Too faced lipstick bullets but given an updated twist. This also includes 2 new 20th anniversary shades. I’m loving the sassy shade names too:
  • Hoochie – cool brown
  • Bionic – light blue
  • Hot Flash – crimson
  • Marcia Marcia Marcia – pretty baby pink
  • Miss Thing – peachy nude
  • Pixie Stick – vivid purple
  • That Girl – warm chocolate brown
  • Trampula – electric blue
  • TF20 – vivid pink
  • Too too hot – spicy red

Formula

The Too Faced website says this lipstick range is full coverage. I personally found the coverage to be on the lighter side than what I expected after swatching them on my hand.  However, if you layer this up with a couple of coats, you will get a more intense colour which is what I prefer. The end result was a multi-reflective glitter finish with a pretty sparkly sheen.
I love the overall look of this once applied and I was impressed with the creamy formula. You can wear the lipstick by itself, but I found it also looks really nice over the top of a matt lipstick. As always with Too Faced, this range is animal cruelty free which is also a plus point.

Packaging

Each lipstick case is in a sparkly shade that matches the colour inside which I absolutely love. These looked so fabulous lined up together on the makeup counter that it made me want to walk away with all of them! The box packaging is also completely sparkly and the top of the box has a cute heart detail which shows the name of the shade. I really love the packaging of this collection and I love having this in my handbag.

Value for money?

Each lipstick is priced at £18 which is a pretty standard price for premium make up brands. The stunning packaging and the quality of this range definitely justifies this price point. Plus, you will get a lot of use out of this so the cost per wear is really reasonable if you work it out this way.
You can purchase this new collection directly from Too Faced stores or on their website here
You will also find this in department stores that have a Too Faced counter.
