Too Faced’s Boudoir Eyes eyeshadow palette ($36 at Sephora, Ulta) promises “soft and sexy” looks “for the bedroom and beyond.” Five of the shades are new (Fuzzy Handcuffs, Voulez-Vous, Garter Belt, Sugar Walls and French Tickler), while the other four (In the Buff, Satin Sheets, Lap Dance and Birthday Suit) are available in their Naked Eyes palette. Too Faced has one of the best eyeshadow formulas available, so I just hoped this new one would live up to its predecessors.
Too Faced’s Candlelight Glow Highlighting Powder Duo is a second generation version of their original Candlelight highlighting powder. This one is designed to be more subtle, leaving just a luminous glow without even a hint of shimmer or sparkle. They say it “diffuses harsh light, giving your skin a soft, youthful luminosity.”
The Too Faced Return of Sexy eyeshadow palette ($48, Sephora) is a permanent collection item featuring 15 mostly very shimmery eyeshadows. The formula for these shadows is a little different from the usual Too Faced formula, being based on a Japanese formula (this comes from an email exchange I had with their PR people). They include a large sample of Shadow Insurance with the palette, along with a full-size Perfect Eyes eyeliner in Perfect Black and three “get the looks” cards.
One of my local Macy’s has just built a new section called Impulse Beauty, and it’s very much like the mini-Sephora’s in J.C. Penney stores. It features Urban Decay, Too Faced and a lot of other brands that are more common to Sephora than Macy’s – so, watch out, Sephora! Anyway, it was at their Too Faced counter that I first got a glimpse in person of the Too Faced Shadow Bonbons palette.
Too Faced Better Than False Lashes (Sephora, $35) is a mascara system that claims to give you a 42% increase in lash length and a 90% increase in volume, making it competitive with false lashes and lash extensions and treatments. It’s a three step system that uses two products: a mascara and brush-on nylon fibers.
