Review: Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush in Candy Glow Gives You Natural Glowing Cheeks With A Hint of Pink

As much as I love blushers, I am not the type who would use heavily to have rosy pink cheeks. Instead, I like just a hint of pink to create that natural glow pink flushed cheeks. Often times you could hardly see me in heavy pink cheeks. Couldn’t deny the fact that I was very much attracted to the packaging of Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush which made me pick them.

Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush in Candy Glow

‘Choose from three no-fail color palette blushes to take the guesswork out of creating a sweet, romantic flush. In each baked, heart shaped blush there are three individual color swatches. The baking process and multiple colors create dimensional color to provide the look of younger, brighter, healthier skin. It’s like having Hollywood lighting wherever you go. 
Blush is like dessert, you didn’t know you loved it until you had a taste of it. Our blush was developed with easy application and a no-fail color palette in mind—to take the guesswork out of creating a sweet, romantic flush. It’s the little black dress of blushes.’

The heart shape cardboard box was attractive to me because it looked vintage and sweet at the same time. Plus with the shade that I have chosen, the combination of pink and cold makes the packaging even lovely.

Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush in Candy Glow Shade

The shade that I have chosen is Candy Glow and let’s check on how the texture looks like on a close up.

The blush is 3 dimensional which normally baked makeup is. The blusher may seem shiny and all but after careful observation, it isn’t give that extreme shine as it can be seen here. Comes with 3 tones to create that natural pink flush where I do recommend to swirl your makeup brush to get an even shade over your cheeks.

From the swatch, you are able to witness that the shades aren’t as shimmery, in fact one of the shade is matte. From left to right, there is cold pink with fine silver glitters, matte peach and coral with fine gold glitters.

This blusher contains mica, talc and silica, great to know if you are sensitive to any of these ingredients.

Applying this blusher is simple and easy, just swirl your makeup brush over it and brush it over the cheeks. The swirling will mix 3 of the blush shades to create a beautiful faint pink shade.

Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush in Candy Glow Before & After

From the before and after, the blusher creates a beautiful glow with a hint of pink. The shimmer is not overly done and it is not flaky that it settles in the pores. The shade is buildable.

Above all…

I love this blush! Though it could be hefty on the price, this is just what I am looking for. A blusher that gives me the glow with a hint of pink that is not overly done. I have came across some shimmering blusher that the shimmer or glitters actually settles in the pores which accentuates the size of the pores and this doesn’t. In fact, I quite like to apply this blusher and I would dust a little on my forehead and nose bridge to highlight them mildly. Because of the packaging, I would place it on my beauty counter to be part of a decorative item.

Isn’t the name of the mascara catchy? No worries, rest assured that this review is still meant for all ages and no inappropriate graphics. I have always been a mascara junkie and this mascara, Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara attracted my attention on the first time trying it before I grabbed it.

This was the description on the back of the box where it is slightly different from the above description I found in their website. Also there were a few ingredients highlighted that forms the function of the mascara.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara Voluptous Volume Mascara Tube

This is the tube of the mascara where on the outer later is made of metal with satin-like finish, pretty heavy in weight for a mascara yet sturdy.

The hour-shaped brush makes the mascara fit onto eye shape and wraps around the lashes much easier. The mascara formula seems wet by the first look at it, wait till you see on my application of this mascara.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara Voluptous Volume Mascara Ingredients

From the ingredients listing, this mascara is free from alcohol, silica and paraben.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara Voluptous Volume Mascara Application

I definitely like the shape of the mascara brush as it fits better over my eye shape, however there are times I am worried that the tip of the brush may touch onto my skin. For as long as I’m using it, I was careful enough to avoid any blunder from happening even though I’m in a hurry. The best part about this mascara is no matter how many times I have layered over my lashes, it did not clump at all and it doesn’t dry to harden lashes.

The application was effortless and delivers quite an impressive result. This mascara cares for the lashes whereby it has collagen and acacia senegal tree extract to nourish them. It doesn’t leave my lashes hard when I have the mascara on and it is friendly to my lashes because the ingredients doesn’t contain alcohol, silica or paraben. I wouldn’t want to comment over the name of the mascara as it is very subjective.

Review: Too Faced Bulletproof Brows, Stays On For At Least 9 Hours Without Fading Away

Who doesn’t want that lasting brow shape especially when you have sparse brows? At least I do, especially when my t-zone gets oily rather easily with this humid weather and not much brow products that I have tried to last as long as I wished. They hardly survive by the end of the day after numerous blotting. Too Faced Bulletproof Brows sounds convincing especially with the word ‘bulletproof’ which makes me think that it should be waterproof or smudge-proof for long good hours, perhaps 8 hours at least?

Too Faced Bulletproof Brows

‘This groundbreaking brow definer is a powder, gel, pencil and setting wax all-in-one cashmere clay formula. It’s the only brow product you’ll ever need. Bulletproof Brow includes a mirror and our dual-sided angled and spooley brush for precise application. In just 60 seconds, color locks down for 24-hour, waterproof, smudge-proof, budge-proof Bulletproof Brows!’

 Too Faced Bulletproof Brows Description

From the box, it has a hidden flip where descriptions are mentioned of it’s function and ways to use it. Through this description, you are able to tell that the kit should come with the jar and double ended brush.

Too Faced Bulletproof Brows Ingredients

I do notice from the ingredients listing, there is beeswax, silica and mica. Just a highlight but I do not have any problem with these ingredients at all. Great to know that there is no paraben in this product.

Too Faced Bulletproof Brows Inside

In the kit, you are able to find a jar and double ended brush. The jar is made of plastic and the size is similar to a standard single eye shadow. The brush is definitely synthetic, well made, soft and gentle at touch.

Too Faced Bulletproof Brows Universal Brunette

The shade that I have here is Universal Brunette which would be great for those who have dark hair and the camera just didn’t do the justice as the actual shade is no closer than in the photo. It is actually in dark brown with ash tones to it. Upon opening the lid of the jar, it has another lid to secure the product which I believe the purpose could be to prevent it from drying out.

Too Faced Bulletproof Brows Swatch

From the swatch, it shows much more of the actual shade. Through the swatch, I did notice that the product dries off quickly and may clump in between. The finishing feels powdery as though I used a pencil to draw it.

Too Faced Bulletproof Brows How To

Let me share how do I draw my brows with Too Faced Bulletproof Brows using the brush that was provided.

  1. Dip into the jar with the brush and outline under the brows according to the shape of the brows.
  2. Outline on the brow shape from the arch to the end.
  3. Outline on the brow shape from the beginning to the arch.
  4. Use the brush vertically and slowly fill in the brows as well as any gaps visible.
  5. Brush the brow hair in place and blend in.

Above all…

At first I was worried that if it could get clumpy all over my brows that I would definitely need to re-do it. I was very light handed when I start and it took me a few seconds just to get a hang of it. Because it dries off so quickly and sometimes gets clumpy, I do need to clean my brush in between application. It glides on smoothly and I would say it is pretty easy to use.

I would normally wear it for at least 9 hours and in between, I would definitely blot my face including my brows because they get oily too. When I got home, I was surprised that my brows was just like how I freshly applied them. They look just as polished, well groomed and the opacity stays. I then purposely rub it with my fingers and it came off which means as long as I don’t rub it, it will stay. When it comes to removing it, there wasn’t any problem after all and no brow hair falls off at all. This is my new found love for my brows!
