Holiday Sets: Too Faced Cosmetics

Yuh just gotta love political correctness..."holiday", right right.

That aside, as you would have read in the Slaves To Trends post the beauty world puts out their special kits from early. Under the behavioural altering label of "limited edition", we've been inundated with palettes and "value sets" from about September. Whether you're considering them for gifts or you just wanna try a bunch of new things, this time of year is when we are pressed to shop shop shop.

Speaking of shopping: Sephora's VIB 20% off sale starts on Friday the 13th through to the 16th and right now you can get 20% off on Too Faced's website. So, Too Faced Cosmetics. You know I'm a fan of their La Creme lipsticks and Lip Insurance Primer. When they launched the Melted line I was even more intrigued by the brand. Too Faced puts a lot into their Holiday launches so it's always one to watch out for.

Back to value sets, never mind I was making digs at this earlier; value sets are a really great way to try products without committing to the full size. They're extra great for beauty lovers who have so much already that they probably couldn't use in one lifetime. A value set containing two full sized lipsticks and a lip liner is the first thing I tried from Too Faced and I've been hooked ever since.

You would have seen in last year's Sephora VIB haul that I purchased a Too Faced mini Melted set. Well, they did it again this year going under a 'Christmas In Paris' theme.

These Melted liquified lipsticks have gotten insane notoriety resulting in Too Faced expanding the colour range and finish. Although a lot of the shades in this set are repeats from last year I really wanted to try 'Melted Chihuahua' (horrible name).

The other shade I really wanted was 'Melted Fig', luckily that one was in the 'Melted Kisses & Sweet Cheeks' set.

Again, it was the only one I was really interested in. The Love Flush blushes are a very recent addition to the Too Faced line and are marketed as very long wearing. This set contains three which look sooooooooooooooo tiny but upon doing my research they are 1/3 of the full size. Honestly, when last have you used a whole blush?

One thing that really stood out with these sets was the attention paid to packaging. I think the theme was well executed. The blush and lip duos in the aforementioned set were individually packaged so you could break the set up into three different little gifts. Adorable.

I'm not a big eyeshadow palette fan but if you are they also released three different eye product sets. You can check out Emily's video below for full details.


The other lip kit is an amazing deal: three full sized La Creme lipsticks for just over the price of one. It's just a matter of if you like those shades. Check out Melanie's video below.

Special thanks to Victoria for hooking me up. The 'Melted French Kisses' set is $25USD and the 'Melted Kisses & Sweet Cheeks' is $36USD. Both are still available on and If you're interested, they're still some of those Melted lippies and that 'Justify My Love' blush shown above available in The Marketplace.

Sunday Riley Good Genes versus Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum

If you're an avid YouTube watcher you've probably heard about these products. Both brands blew up on the skincare seen in short order as expensive, but effective. If you're like me you quickly began to wonder: which is better? Short answer: it depends.

Long answer...

I've mentioned Good Genes a few times before on the blog. This 'all-in-one lactic acid treatment' is raved about by the likes of Stephanie Nicole and Caroline Hirons.

From the box: "Deeply exfoliates the dull surface of the skin for clarity, radiance, and younger-looking skin. Visibly brightens the appearance of age spots and discolorations. Instantly plumps the look of fine lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes*

*Clinically tested and proven to significantly improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes. Results obtained via profilometry analysis.

It's A Dupe!

Long time no dupe.

Corny? I know. I try.

Faithful readers would have seen me rave about the Becca Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector, a.k.a Face Cement, numerous times. Well, we have a dupe: The Make Up For Ever (MUFE) Step 1 Skin Equalizer Mattifying Primer. I knew it instantly. So instantly that I've used the MUFE twice and decided that it's ridiculous to keep both since they are the same.

You can read all about the Becca primer in the link above so I'm just going to talk about the MUFE version here.

Can you tell which is which? No? Well, neither can I.
