A "Romantic" look at Too Faced

My Romantic Face

Too Faced has become an easily recognized brand in the cosmetics world. Not only is their packaging ultra feminine and sweet, but the products really do what they claim they will do.

I placed an order the day the Fall collection was released. (I discovered that the website has better deals than buying in the store, and you get free samples!) My goal was to buy the lip liner and lipstick to try out and see how I liked them. I ended up getting more than I intended, but got a great deal.

The shipping box is just as pretty as the product packaging. Who doesn't love pink?

Inside contents

Free samples! Isn't the pink filler cute? Because of these samples, I now love Lip Insurance; a product I never thought I would need or use. It felt hydrating, smoothed my lips and made my lipstick last longer!

My purchases

I ended up purchasing:

La Creme lipstick in Nude Beach
Perfect Lips liner in Nude
The Romantic Eye collection

I got a free deluxe Candlelight Shadow Insurance for spending over $75
I also got a free Lip Insurance and mini Perfect Lips pencil liner and a card sample of the BB Cream.

These are almost exactly the same shade. I prefer the retractable pencil to the one you sharpen.

I love the creaminess of the new lipstick formula. It wears for a good 6 hours on me without feeling drying to the lips and is comfortable all day. I also love the new lip liners. It too was creamy and comfortable on the lips. I lined my lips and filled them in with the liner and put the Nude Beach over top. I was able to eat and drink all day without touching up.


Shadow Insurance. Cult fav! Especially for dryer eyelids.

Perfect Eyes liner in Perfect Purple

Swatch of Perfect Purple

 Perfect Eyes liner in Perfect Purple is a smoldering deep purple with a golden shimmer. This shade really brought the green out in my eyes and the shimmer in it is just enough to brighten the eyes without looking like sparkle. This liner did not irritate my eyes when worn in the waterline and did not run or smudge. I had no noticeable fading throughout the day.


Poison Orchid, Magic Mushroom and Night Nymph

I was most excited about getting these three shades with my kit! I had wanted Poison Orchid for months, but never could bring myself to purchase separately. It is the most gorgeous shimmery purple. All three shades are quite shimmery and will have some fall out when applying. Tapping off the brush or using a sticky primer like the Glitter Glue will help if that is an issue.





Day swatches: Soulmates, I do, Un-veil

Classic swatches: kiss the bride, Cut the cake, First Dance

Fashion swatches: Bouquet toss, Honeymoon, Everafter

The Romantic palette is a nice mix if shimmer and matte, with a mostly neutral color palette. There is enough fun color in the palette to play it up for those who are more adventurous, but can still be used by those who prefer a more subdued look. The shades, for the most part are, silky and creamy feeling. The exceptions would be Honeymoon and Everafter because of the large amount of shimmer in them. Un-veil and First Dance were a little hard to swatch on bare skin, but worked wonderfully over primer.
