Sometimes, I feel like I came into the make up game way late because there are brands like Too Faced that feel so new to me, and yet I find out that they’ve been around for twenty years already! For those who don’t know, the brand launched in 1998 so this is their twenty year anniversary. To celebrate it, they have launched a 20th birthday collection – which is excitingly coming to Mecca from tomorrow! In addition to it, they are also bringing out a new Born This Way Concealer, which has been really hyped up online.
The full 20th birthday collection consists of eight Metallic Sparkle Lipsticks, a special repackaging of the Better than Birthday Sex mascara, and their Then and Now Eyeshadow Palette – the latter which has been teased online for quite a while and I’m excited to finally see it! Rather than cover the entire collection, since I’m sure you’re going to click onto the Mecca website anyway, I want to give you guys a look into the two products that I’m most excited about!
With the end of August approaching, I decided to start a new series on my blog! This is my ‘Want (Don’t) Need’ series, which is essentially where I talk about different products that have caught my eye and that I want to buy – usually new releases or new to me. I’ll also briefly discuss a few products that I have decided to pass on for now, whether it is because the formula isn’t meant for my skin type/tone or because I have repeats in my own collection – that is, I don’t need it.
Aside from helping me to analyse my own shopping habits, because I have a big problem when it comes to buying make up and skincare, I hope that these posts will also help you to decide what products that you want to try out too! Remember that I haven’t personally tried out any of these, so these posts are not reviews. If a product is in my Don’t Need list, that doesn’t mean that it’s bad or that it isn’t worth checking out – it just means that, for whatever reason, I have decided I don’t personally need it in my collection.
And so, there is no better time to start this because my birthday is at the beginning of September! I’ll be letting myself splurge a little bit on treats for myself so it’s good to get thoughts down. I have been trying to limit my spending lately so there’s quite a few things I have my eyes on.
And so, here we go!
I am one of the luckiest girls in the world – I swear. I had been eying this Sweet Peach Collection from Too Faced for a long time. Part of it was definitely the famous scent (which is amazing, by the way) and another part was this super cute packaging! For my birthday, I had a dinner get-together with a bunch of friends and some of the girls got together to spoil me with both the palette and the blusher from this collection. It’s my first experience with Too Faced products and I’m definitely not disappointed. These are all available for purchase from Mecca or US Sephora and, aside from these two products, also include lip glosses and a glow palette. There have been even more releases from Too Faced for the holiday season lately and I’ve been also keen to try them out.
Until I get my hands on them though, let’s talk about these two products!
The first is the Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Collection which, according to the website, is a ‘new take on neutrals featuring fresh-picked shades of peachy pinks, corals, bronzes, and pops of purples that will have you looking sweet as a peach year-round.’ I also have on hand the Papa Don’t Peach (which is the cutest pun I have heard in a long time because I legitimately love that song). The website states that, ‘This peach essence-infused blush is the perfect bronzy peach shade that adds a pop of warmth, a sexy glow, and fresh juicy scent to any complexion.’
These products all smell like peaches, claim to suit all skin tones and have a rich, pigmented formula. I have been using them almost every day and I find that they’re perfectly suited for any sort of occasion.
Read on and I’ll get a bit more in depth with it all!
