I’m back with a review of two different Too Faced products. I have recently become slightly obsessed with Too Faced products so I wanted to start reviewing some of them.
I want to start out by saying that I almost never wear makeup and my level of skill when it comes to putting it on is almost none. So know that if I can use it and like it, then it is probably ridiculously easy to use and almost impossible to mess up. In this post I am talking about the It’s Bananas Setting Powder from Too Faced’s Tutti Frutti collection and the HangoveRx Primer.
Since primer goes on first we’ll start with that one. First, the packaging. I love it. It’s a squeezy tube with a pump. Easy to use and I know I’ll be able to get every last drop out of it. This primer has probiotic-based ingredients that are supposed to be good for your skin. It also has coconut water to be hydrating. You can click the link above for a full list of ingredients on their website. I love the fresh coconut smell of this primer and the way it feels on my skin; very refreshing and it really helps wake me up in the morning. I often put this on even if I don’t put on any makeup for the day.
My skin is very difficult and very sensitive. I have horrible combination skin and almost everything that touches my face makes me break out. My skin likes this primer most of the time but not all the time. My face tends to get (even though my skin is very very dry) very oily during the day and this primer does not always work with that. I actually like it less as a makeup primer and more as moisturizer.
Ok, next the setting powder. This is from their Tutti Frutti collection which launched sometime last year I believe. My favorite Instagrammer and sweetest human being Kandee Johnson was the face of this collection. There’s so much I like about this powder and one thing I don’t.
First up, the packaging again. Too Faced really nails it on the packaging every time. I love this little compact, it is not cheaply made at all. I can throw this in my purse and it will hold up just fine jumbling around with all the crap I carry around- not to mention it’s adorable. The powder itself is great. Word of warning, the first ingredient is talc, which I know a lot of people don’t like to use but I don’t mind it. It also contains a little salicylic acid which is great for my acne prone skin. This powder is banana scented which I love. It smells just like the banana Runts candies. This setting powder is advertised to be flattering on golden undertones, brightening under eyes, and good for correcting redness on fair skin. I am very fair-skinned and like anything that brightens up my under eye area. I think it does a great job at all of those things but the only thing I don’t like is that it doesn’t last for me and my oily daytime skin. I feel like I need to reapply halfway through the day.
I like both of these products even though they are kind of pricey; the primer is $34.00 and the powder is $30.00. I tend to wait for sales and/or free shipping offers when I want to buy anything from Too Faced but so far I have liked everything I have gotten from them.
I am part of the generation that made ADD a thing and it shows. My thoughts are random and I am constantly squirreling, but that's what keeps things interesting, right?
