Too Faced: Haul, Swatches, and Reviews!!

Ok, I'm super excited about this post. Why?
CUZ IT'S TOO FACED!!! (((o(> u <)o)))

Some of this haul is from HauteLook, and the rest is from the actual Too Faced website. So LET'S GET STARTED!!!


First up, Too Faced Sun Bunny Bronzer. In all honesty, I bought this for my mom for Mother's Day, since she kept stealing my 'Fun in the Dark' palette just for the same bronzer. xD
I personally RARELY use bronzers, simply since my skin is so pale, and even the slightest bit of bronzer can get out of hand. However, for the few times that I do use it, Sun Bunny is one of my faves. It has two shades in one; one side a lighter golden bronze, the other a classic bronze with a touch of pink undertone. It looks very natural on the skin; none of that awkward orange tinting. It has a slight amount of shimmer, but not to the point that you'd sparkle like a Cullen (ew... Twilight...). It gives you a gorgeous, healthy glow.
Too Faced Sun Bunny Bronzer retails for $29.

Next, the Too Faced Mood Swing lip gloss in 'Pink Petal.' These glosses are pretty cool. They start off with a particular color and then change into a perfect shade of pink. I'm sure most people know this, but anything "mood activated" works by body temperature. Your moods actually can effect the heat (or lack there-of) of your body. These glosses use that to their advantage to change their shades.
This one in particular starts off white, then shifts to (as stated) a petal pink shade. According to the box, it can change to 6 different hues; in order from lightest to darkest, the moods are labeled as Totally Zen (palest pink/almost white), Slightly Smitten (true petal pink), Feeling Frisky (Pink with Lilac-ish undertone), Dirty Thoughts (flirty pink), Hot and Bothered (mauvey pink), and Bask in the Afterglow (deep mauvey pink).
The only issue I have with this particular shade is that it can settle into the imperfections of your lips, which is obviously never flattering. So I suggest using a lip scrub first to smooth out the texture of your lips beforehand.
Of course, it'd be difficult to swatch every shade, but I hope this'll give you an idea.
Mood Swing lip gloss vintage retails for $16.65.

This product is their newest edition to the Candlelight highlighting powder: Candlelight Glow.
I remember trying the original Candlelight when I purchased Too Faced holiday 2011 palette, and abosolutely adored it. This one is similar, but has a specific twist. The original highlighter is only one shade, but the Glow highlighter has two. One side is a sheer golden powder that warms your skintone, the other a gilded-rose which brightens and illuminates. According to the description, PHOTOLITE technology filters and fractures harsh light to fight the effect of cold lighting which gives skins a washed out or chalky tone.
Each side can be used seperately, or you can swirl the two together. Your choice :)
I'm equally in love with this highlighter as I am with the original... maybe even more. ^u^ It gives a perfect glow to skin that looks natural.
Candlelight Glow retails for $29.

 Next up is the Natural at Night palette. I've had my eye on it for a litle while now and finally decided to take the leap and buy it. Gotta say, I'm glad I did. xD
The colors of course are more on the neutral side, but amped up for the night (as expected). A palette like this is perfect for a natural smokey eye.
As with nearly every other Too Faced eyeshadow I've ever tried, the formula is so creamy and easily blendable. As usual, there's 9 eyeshadows and 3 categories:
- Night (inseadd of the usual Day): Full Moon (glittery light bronze), Nightcap (shimmering medium bronze), Cocoa Star (deep matte cocoa)
- Classic: Night Light (glittery rose-blush), After Hours (shimmery medium mauve), Eclipse (deep mauve shimmer)
- Fashion: Spotlight (matte cream), Moon Stone (shimmering olive-brass), Night Fever (deep golden brown with glitter)

Night Light gives a slight bit of glitter fallout, but it's really not to the point that it becomes fairydust all over your face xD

Too Faced Natural at Night Palette retails for $36.

One thing I can say, I don't own many of the single round eyeshadows, though I wish I owned them all. Haha!
The one I most recently picked up is in the shade "Glamazon."
Glamazon is a silver fawn color; absolutely gorgeous. The consistancy of it is maybe a bit creamier than others, but that's in no way a bad thing. It's easily blendable and has a lovely almost-foiled finish. It makes me definitely want to pick up the other colors. ^u^
Too Faced single round eyeshadows retail for $16.

 Next up is the Too Faced Round Eyeshadow Duos. I managed to get my hands on two shades: "Teddy Bear/Heaven (chocolate matte/cream matte)"  and "Bon Bon (golden pink/beige sparkle)."
"Teddy Bear/Heaven" is perhaps one of my favorite duos. The Teddy Bear shade was included in the holiday 2011 Sweet Dreams palette, and Heaven is part of the Natural Eye palette. Both shades are very versitile, and I feel I use them more than most other shades for everyday looks. Teddy Bear is amazing as a crease color, while Heaven is beautiful as both an all-over lid color and brow highlight.
"Bon Bon" is another duo that can be rather versitile. The golden-pink shade is a beautiful color that could be used for romantic looks, and the shimmery beige would work wonders as a highlight. As a matter of fact, I think using Teddy Bear with Bon Bon would make an adorable look inspired by sweets~ ^ w ^
Too Faced eyeshadow duos retail for $17.

Well, that concludes my Too Faced haul and review.
HNGGGGGG!!!! I just friggin' LOVE Too Faced, and I know one of these days, it'll be the death of my life's savings. Hahaha. xD
In a nutshell, I'd definitely buy all of these items again, and continue to buy anything else they put out. I also recommend them to all ^u^
I have all of the other permanent palettes, so I'll be working on reviews/swatches of them too when I get the chance; for those who may be wondering if they should get them or not.
It'll also be something to hold everyone off while I work on tutorials and such. ^_^

So, until next time,
Stay beautiful, both inside and out~ <3
