My First Too Faced Eyeshadow!


I got my first Too Faced eyeshadow over the weekend, it's called Label Whore. It's sooo pretty! It reminds me of MAC's Club eyeshadow which I don't have, its a brown-green duochrome. I've wanted to get Club eyeshadow for the longest time, but I've been thinking and re-thinking whether it was worth it because based on swatches in the store, it has aweful payoff. *Well I didn't like it* But when I went to my local drugstore, Boots, and swatched this one, I immediately fell in love with it! Keep reading for more photos, swatches and my review ♥

Cute vintage packaging- reminds me so much of Benefit!






Too Faced Label Whore swatch:


See what I mean by the green-brown duochrome? It's brown, but when the light hits it, it becomes a metallic blue-green. Soo pretty~~ It is SOOO soft smooth and pigmented. It looks and feels so much like a veluxe pearl *fellow MAC addicts would relate*. I think I'll be looking at Too Faced eyeshadows much more often now :)

And look how big the eyeshadow pan is in comparison to MAC ones!

Each single eyeshadow from Too Faced has 2.5g of product, whereas a MAC one has only 1.5g. They cost almost the same price in the UK. MAC = £11, Too Faced = £10.25.

All in all, I would highly recommend you check Too Faced eyeshadows out for high quality eyeshadows. I'm eye-ing another colour, but I'll wait til my budget permits before I get it. :)

Have you tried Too Faced products? What do you think of them? ♥

  2. That shadow looks so pretty! I have an old shadow by Too Faced that I cannot bear to part with...it's a shimmery brown color, sort of reminds me of satin taupe. I will look at too faced shadows again!

  4. I love too faced. I have their eyeshadow insurance primer, and wear it all the time. In fact, I have it on right now and my eye makeup still looks the way it did at 7:00 this morning. And I know I have their pinkish-fuchsia eyeshadow (forgot the name!), but it's really really pretty colour with nice payoff to boot.

  22. I like the color but I don't think it suits me. Never mind, I know they have other colors available just not sure if the lasting power is good.

    ReplyDelete
  23. @Anonymous- I think its lasting power is quite average, like my MAC ones. But I usually use a base underneath my eyeshadows when I'm wearing them so that makes them last longer.

  24. Ooh, the bright pink colour I have is "Mess in a Dress"--it's a very girly shade, as long as you remember to wear it with some eyeliner to avoid looking like you have a cold. Here's their eyeshadow section of their site:

    Now I'm eyeing Neptune...

  26. I <3 too faced! :) I've really ventured off into other brands besides mac :D But luckily for you it's almost the same price over there, I think they cost more over here, but it's bigger (and I will never finish it) :D
