Reviewing Too Faced’s Summer 2013 Collection

 

What It Is:

Too Faced Summer 2013 Collection*: Summer Eyes Palette, Bronzed & Poreless and Sweet Sunshines Lipgloss in Papaya Slushie

Why This Should Be in Your Bag:

Too Faced Summer offerings are all about resort-inspired makeup and fun, punchy colors. I’ve got the Summer Eyes Palette with 9 hot shades, Bronzed & Poreless, a new bronzer infused with ingredients from their bestselling Primed & Poreless to add color and Sweet Sun Shines Lipgloss in Papaya Slushie. Together, these three gems make a gorgeous look inspired by the heat of summer nights!

How To Use It:

For this look, I recreated the “Classic” eyelook that comes with the palette. I applied Peach Fuzz on the lid through to the brow, applied Coral Crush on the lid and then Chocolate Sun in the crease and outer corner. I swept Bronzed & Poreless all over my face, focusing on my cheeks and finished with Papaya Slushie gloss on my lips!

CC Rating: A-

Overall, this was a strong offering of Summer 2013 goodies from Too Faced! The 9-pan palette is done in their classic style, but is full of funky, fresh shades. It’s actually a repackaged version of their Summer 2012 palette that was uber popular and flew off the shelves. I’m going to talk about the pros and cons of each products individually to keep things straight.

The Summer Eyes Palette ($36 USD) features colors I don’t normally use on my eyes like pink and coral, but I am glad I tried them out. The shadows are great quality and I’m particularly fond of Cocoa Beach and Toasted Coconut. My only complaints are that most of the shades are full of glitter, so matte lovers beware, and that 2 of the base shades (Peach Fuzz and Sunbeam) are basically sheer once applied. The sparkles are obvious, but the color just blends into my skin.

Bronzed & Poreless ($30 USD) is an excellent bronzer and has quickly made its way into my rotation! When applied, it gives a soft-focus look and really does blur imperfections, similarly to a primer. I’m loving this!

Papaya Slushie ($16 USD) is a fun, wearable shade of coral with sparkles. I’m not normally one for sparkly gloss, but I really love the non-sticky texture of this gloss as well as the lovely color. Consider me a convert!

The whole Summer 2013 Collection from Too Faced is available on their website and Sephora!
