Too Faced have been absolutely killing it recently with their cute and kitsch launches that are getting me very excited. Last year saw the cutesy Sweet Peach collection of which I stocked up on royally, before introducing the new Born This Way sculpting concealers and that setting powder that is so difficult to get hold of. This year has also seen the launch of a flagship store on London’s Carnaby Street as well as gorgeous new counters within Debenhams stores. Currently, as I write this post, I’m trying to track down the Too Faced Gingerbread Spice palette as it seems to be sold out everywhere and I’ve missed the boat. This is what Too Faced does to me. I creates a collection monster! Too Faced have launched an exclusive collection which can only be purchased in the Carnaby Street branch, or via the website (however I would use this as a last resort as they are yet to have a UK distribution centre so all purchases are subject to shipping and tax). The Tutti Frutti collection from Too Faced is a 53 product strong collection that has taken me back down memory lane with its gorgeous packaging and fruity scented products.
As a highlighter hoarder, I am totally open to various ways of creating that desired glow. The Too Faced Tuti Frutti Fresh Squeezed Highlighting Drops in Sparkling Pina Colada couldn’t be more perfect for dewy, golden skin. The drops are quite watery in consistency so for myself applying them across the decolletage, down the arms and legs would be a preferable way to use then .Of course, a small drop on a beauty blender would also work well on the face and as they are oil free, the drops won’t disturb your makeup. You could even add them into your moisturiser or foundation for a sparkly finish – perfect for Christmas!
I was instantly drawn to the compact powders as I haven’t seen anything like this before from Too Faced. Even down to the small details of the angled corner to lift the lid rather than the usual clasp of a compact makes them stand out. The Too Faced Tutti Frutti Pineapple Paradise Strobing Bronzer Highlighter Duo is pretty gorgeous. From its glittery pineapple emblazoned lid to the seriously stunning powders within that are fragranced with a tropical pineapple scent. The powders can be worn alone or swirled together to get a seriously golden glow. The highlighter shade is light golden bronze, whilst the satin bronzer is a medium bronze with gold reflects. It’s a perfect pairing of shades for my skin tone and I love how it warms my skin without looking muddy.
The Too Faced Tutti Frutti Fruit Cocktail Blush Duo in Apricot in the Act is the product that I have been reaching for the most lately. I was actually quite surprised with Apricot in the Act as it does like it would be too dark on my skin when you look at it in the pan. When buffed into the skin, the colour is a lot more subtle and gives a sheer veil of colour rather than a burst of intense pigment. It’s buildable, blendable and seamless on the skin and I love the blush shade as it suits my skin tone so well. Mixed together, or worn alone as a highlighter and blush combo, the colours look so pretty on a warm skin tone.
Continuing on my journey for the love of liquid glitter shadows, the Too Faced Tutti Frutti Twinkle Twinkle Shadows are so incredibly sparkly, that you simply could not bypass these. My usual glitter shadows are from Stila so I do usually hold these in high regard when trying new products. TheToo Faced shadows are more sheer in formulation but have the same multi dimensional glitter particles to give a super sparkly glow from all angles, The glitter is finer than the Stila glitters which does give a different overall effect. The shades that I have are Lemon Zest; a true yellow gold with golden glitter and Citrus Mistress; a rosy copper with copper and gold glitter. I tap these onto the centre of my eye to transform my eye look and I have been trying these out of the lips over a matte lipstick for a little something extra. There are 8 shades in total to choose from, each shade inspired by candied fruit.
The Too Faced Juicy Fruits Comfort Lip Glazes are lip glosses that I can get on with. In 12 shades, from brights to nudes, I have Yummy Rummy and Show Me Your Coconuts. Now, these are so comfortable on the lips and after all those matte liquid lips that I’ve been wearing, it makes such a difference to have a comfort glaze with a high shine, opaque metallic finish. The metallic sheen gives the illusion of a fuller pout and creates maximum impact. Yummy Rummy is a bronze shade with gold reflects whilst Show Me Your Coconuts is that perfect deep beige nude that has just enough shimmer to transform your lips from zero to hero.
I think that the Too Faced Tutti Frutti collection could the best collection yet! Have you tried any of the Tutti Frutti range?
