Today I’m reviewing the Candy Bar Pop-Out Makeup Palette & Phone Case (genius) and Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush in Peach Beach.
Too Faced has two new additions to the Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush in Something About Berry, a mauve/peach/fuschia shimmering pink and Peach Beach, a peach/rose/ bronze shimmering peach. Sorry this picture isn’t pristine, I couldn’t wait to try it so the stippling you see are brush marks.
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 packaging is adorable and girly! The cardboard box is heart shaped and has a vintage feel to it, perfect for Valentine’s Day! The blush itself is a whopping 0.19 oz. so there is a lot of product. The baked formula isn’t as soft as a regular powder blush, but still buildable.
Being pale, especially in winter, I usually have to go easy on the blush. Peach Beach has the just the right amount of pigment with the most gorgeous subtle sheen; perfect for us over 40 ladies. I suppose you could use the three shades separately, but I prefer them swirled together, the result being a very pretty peachy pink glow that lasts all day. As I’m typing this, I’m going on 10 hours with no fading. I’m LOVING this blush!!! I know it’s early in the year, but I’m already thinking Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush in Something Peach Beach will be going on my Best of 2014 list! If you are cooler toned, Something About Berry will suit you perfectly and add some brightness to your face in this dull dreary weather.
The Too Faced Pop-Out Makeup Palette & Phone Case is back for spring 2014 with the Candy Bar theme. This limited edition candy bar IPhone case holds 11 eyeshadows, a blush and bronzer! C’mon, the packaging is to-die-for!! The case will fit an I Phone 5 and maybe a 5S (not sure).
- Medium Brown
- Starry Night
- Rose Gold
- Dark Blue
- Matte Brown
- Matte Caramel
- Matte Bronzer
These are some delicious (get it?) colors beauties! All the shadows are very pigmented, smooth and easy to blend. Their small size does make getting a brush into the pans slightly difficult, but certainly not impossible. For those of you who do not like colors migrating into each other, be aware that this will probably happen only because the pans are so small and close together. The deeper shades, the blue and purple are just stunning!
The bronzer and the blush are great shades, but again it’s kind of hard to get a blush or bronzer brush into the pans.
Bottom Line: The Too Faced Candy Bar Pop-Out Makeup Palette & Phone Case is a great little palette with some very pretty eyeshadow shades and darling packaging. Great for on- the- go girls! Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush is a must have!
