Oh, I am a sucker for pretty packaging and even more of a sucker when two of my favourite brands combine to create one of the cutest collaborations ever. The Too Faced x Kat Von D Better Together Collection is exclusive to Debenhams and is made up of Ultimate Eye Collection Set, the Cheek and Lip Makeup Bag set and the Better Together Mascara and Liner Kit, all in the kitschest packaging. A complete blend of Jerrod Blandino and Kat Von D, the Better Together collection is the perfect blend of stylish goth and pastel pink. Too cute for words, and very irresistible.
Starting off with the Better Together Cheek and Lip Makeup Bag set, this little set is a perfect way to try deluxe samples of both brands top selling products but in exclusive shades. The makeup bag is double sided and features a cartoon picture of Jerrod Blandino’s dog, Clover printed on a pink glittery heart. On the reverse, Kat’s cat, Piaf in a matte black, gothic style. Inside the makeup bag, for Too Faced is a deluxe sample of the Candlelight Highlighting Powder in Rosy Glow as well as an exclusive shade of the Love Flush Blush in So Happy Together. After using the Candlelight Highlighting powder, I can safely say that I need a full sized one as the sheer golden glow is just beautiful. The Love Flush blush in the peony pink shade with a slight iridescent sheen is also gorgeous and I hope that they do release this in a full size soon.
For the Kat Von D exclusives, she’s taken care of the lip products and I honestly do believe that this is what Kat Von D does best. Although I don’t actually own that many of her products (yet), and my Mum was the first out of us both to get a Studded Kiss Lipstick, I’m being converted to the liquid lipstick range and I am seriously impressed. The exclusive shades in the Better Together Makeup Bag come in the form of Studded Kiss Lipstick in Muse; a shimmering nude, and Everlasting Lipstick in XO; a matte oxblood. Personally I wouldn’t have said that XO was a matte oxblood, but more of a deep raspberry pink that is so beautiful, and a bugger to get hold of in full size. Muse has been living in my makeup bag for day time top ups and is quite versatile from day to night.
For a great way to try the best selling Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara and the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner, the Better Together Duo Set is such a great idea. I’ve been wearing the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara for a long time now so it’s always handy to have a deluxe sample back up to keep in my handbag. What I was most excited about was the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner. Everyone raves about it, and I was so looking forward to giving it a shot. It has such a good nib that is just stiff enough but also flexible enough that it practically draws a cat eye wing for you. I am definitely going to be getting a full size soon.
Have you tried any of these products? What do you think? Is there anything from Too Faced or Kat Von D that you think I can’t live without?
