Too Faced Cosmetics and ***GIVEAWAY*** (Ends Feb. 14th)

I have two products from Too Faced in my makeup case that I currently own and like to use.
The first product I would like to show you is a blush stick.
Too Faced Blush Stick - "Who's Your Daddy?"
Too Faced Blush Stick ("Who's Your Daddy?") swatched heavily.
 I originally bought this for my sister but she didn't use it so it came back into my possession. :P
I really like it.
The matte shade is definitely great for shading the cheeks. I use the pink shimmery side as a highlight for my cheeks. Sometimes I mix the two colors together which makes it a bit customizable.
It glides on creamy at first but sets into a powder-like feel (semi-matte).
Its fairly easy to apply. Simply dab it onto the cheeks and blend in with your fingers (or brush if you prefer).

Would I repurchase?
Yes, although I still have a long ways to go before this blush stick is finished! O_o


The second Too Faced product I currently own is the "Lash Injection" mascara.
Lash Injection "Pitch Black" (Color: Black)


I like how this mascara's shade is very black like it claims. This mascara is supposed to make your lashes look like lash extensions but I mainly just like it because of the big wand. I don't like to spend a lot of time doing my makeup and so I like how I can just brush my lashes once or twice with this huge mascara wand and get most of my lashes coated. Of course its hard to reach the lashes in the corners but I'm okay with not having every single lashes coated with mascara.

So now for the fun part...

Apothica is generously offering one of YOU a chance to win a $25 gift card which can be used at SkinCareRx.com, Apothica.com, and SkinBotanica.com.

For those of you who don't know, Apothica is an online beauty boutique that carries a lot of popular cosmetic brands that I'm sure a lot of you are familiar with. I'm glad to see that they carry a good selection of Too Faced Cosmetics like mentioned above. Apothica also offer brands like Voluspa (luxury candles, fragrances and body products), and Jurlique (natural body and skin care products).

ooo that blush looks really pretty! it seemed too vibrant in the swatch but it looks really natural when worn!

the daiso masks are ok, a lot of people like them but they don't really do anything ;\

That blush looks so beautiful & natural on your cheeks ! I've never actually tried a cream blush but have been lusting after MUFE HD microfinish one which seems to be raved about nearly everywhere ;-O Can't escape hype.

May I ask how long lasting this one is ?

Karen said...

Kay, you look prettyy ! I think this makes for a perfect natural Valentine's look actually.. lashes, cheeks, and lip color are all quite romantic :) I need to know.. what are you wearing on your lips?!! & are you wearing falsies? I am still torn between trying out falsies or not..

btw TooFaced is one of my fav CF brands yay :)
