There’s something so fun about makeup shopping in real life… being able to swatch everything, see what’s new and discover things you might ignore online. So, imagine my delight when one of my favourite brands, Too Faced, opens their first ever store in the world. It’s on Carnaby Street, and it’s an Instagram dream come true! I tried to take more photos but the store was absolutely packed with fellow makeup-lovers.
If you’re new to Too Faced, there’s a lot to try! It’s a pretty big lineup, product wise. There’s the Hangover range (primer and setting spray) for those who have dehydrated skin or are looking for some more moisture in their makeup. The Born This Way foundation & concealer is one of my favourites, and I would highly recommend swatching. There’s the Sweet Peach collection, which has the best palette and one of the prettiest peach blushers around. I would also strongly recommend the eye shadow primer (have used it for years), and the infamous Better Than Sex mascara.
As soon as I saw the Chocolate Gold eye shadow palette, I knew I’d have to have it… Too Faced makes some of the best palettes around (I use the sweet peach so regularly), and this one is beautiful. Firstly, it’s dipped in gold on one side, so the magpie in me couldn’t resist the shininess of the whole thing. The shades inside are all equally rich and jewel-like, so it’s pretty much for this time of year. Having quickly played around with the shades, it’s similar in formula to the sweet peach, but the metallic shades are even softer.
I also grabbed the new melted matte gingerbread shade, mainly because it smells like gingerbread and I couldn’t resist! I love the formula on these & the burnt orange shade is a nice twist on a classic Christmas red.
