Mini Too Faced Haul

I am sort of getting back onto my feet after a couple weeks of pain and sadness, so bear with me. If you'd like to know what happened, you can read about it all here. I'm not gonna get into any of it because I want to slowly get back into writing and I also found some great products over the past couple of weeks that I have been using a lot and am really impressed with. 
I have been running out of my Laura Geller Spackle face primer and my fashion merchandising class happened to be going to a fashion show last week and then to a mall straight after to shop and eat food before we headed back (awesome field trip amirite?). So I was just strolling along with my friends and we happened to make our way to Sephora...oh gosh. Yeah I tried to resist the urge to buy anything, but I was like, "I'm here, I don't wanna come back for a while, and why the heck not?". So, I gave in and bought a couple things from the ever-so-thoughtfully placed travel items kiosk right in front of the cashiers. I have heard tons about the Too Faced HangoveRx Primer and a Better Than Sex mascara. 
This primer is actually really nice. I have had a thing with primers lately and I think I've just never used makeup without using a primer. My skin is so combo-oily that it's hard not to use foundation without a base underneath. I didn't find this primer to be blurring per say, it felt very hydrating and kind of acted like a serum that you put under your foundation than an oil-free base, which it isn't. If you are extremely oily, I wouldn't recommend this. However, it's great if you have drier to combo skin because I noticed that it makes my skin look healthy and glowy. I usually put a BB cream on over it for a more natural look.

I noticed that it really smoothes out the skin and doesn't leave it looking slimy and shiny. I mean, that's gross, but no one wants that! This is also perfect for using instead of a liquid foundation; just blend a little bit in the trouble areas and apply some powder on and you're good to go. I was intrigued by it because it has coconut water in it and it really smells like coconut. I also loved the fact that it's a pump, which is really nice and appreciated. I need to keep using it more, so I will keep you all updated!
Then I bought this mini sized Better Than sex mascara, which I knew I would love. I reminds me exactly like Maybelline's Lash Sensational. It really does an awesome job at curling the lashes even without using a lash curler. I did notice that it can smear easily, so you want to be careful when touching your face or other things. I personally like the mini, travel-size mascaras because I find that I can use them up more instead of the full tube that dries out too quick. 
As I gradually make my way back on schedule and into the swing of things, I just want you all to know that I am okay and life will move on. I don't want to stop doing what I love, so I'm happy to be back on track. What have you guys loved from Too Faced?


  1. I really love both of these Too Faced products! I had a sample of the primer this winter and it really helped my dry skin. I need to pick up the full size!
