For those of you who aren’t familiar, Too Faced is a cruelty free, bunny-friendly brand. In fact, the owners love bunnies so much, they put bunnies on the packaging! I got to sample several products from their Fall 2012 line, which is all about bringing color and “sexy” back!
The La Creme Color Drenched Lip Creme lipsticks come in 16 different shades (11 pictured above) in spices/neutrals, pinks, reds and wines. The colors are bold, but sheer enough that anyone can wear them. My faves are the nude/neutral shades for everyday and the Marshmallow Bunny pink with the Perfect Pink lip pencil (pictured above). Please note that they are not all vegan – check the ingredient list for each shade. These new lipsticks are also good for your lips – they are made with lotus flower extract and peptides to soothe, condition and protect.
The Too Faced Perfect Eyes Eyeliners are perfect dupes for Urban Decay’s eyeliners. They glide on SO easily and once they set, they are waterproof. You have a few seconds to smoke out the line with the blender sponge on the opposite end, and then it sets to last all day.
The Perfect Lips lip pencils are also very long-lasting. You can actually wear these alone – or under lipstick. They come in 4 shades: nude, spice, pink and red.
The Better Than False Lashes is a very unique product. It’s basically an alternative to falsies. You coat your eyelashes with the mascara base/topcoat, apply the nylon fibers (which looks a lot like dryer lint), and then apply another coat of the mascara. The fibers give you added length and volume that you can’t get from mascara alone. The trick is not to wiggle the brush when you put it on – just pull the brush through the lashes. Then, you can go back and brush out any clumps with the mascara wand (or a dry spoolie). Also – don’t use this on top and bottom lashes at the same time – it will just make them stick together when you blink. This is a fun product – definitely more for going out – not everyday. It gives you incredible length and volume without the worry of false lashes falling off while you’re out and about!
The Lash Injection mascara is a product that Too Faced has just brought back to the market. This tubing mascara coats your lashes with elastic polymers that come off in little “tubes” – with just warm water and soap or eye makeup remover. The beauty of this tubing mascara is that it doesn’t smudge or flake and it’s extremely waterproof. It’s also got a dose of Vitamin E to moisturize your lashes.
Another really unique product is the 3 Way Lash Lining Tool. This is a liquid liner in a pen with three tiny points. You can use this to “tight line” (getting as close to the lash line as possible) and you can use it to draw little dots in your lash line – between the lashes. Like a calligraphy pen, you can get a thin line and then twist at the end for a thicker cat eye.
