Got a Beauty Hangover? The New Too Faced Hangover Face Primer Could Be the Cure

Too Faced Hangover Primer Review

Wearing the new Too Faced Hangover Primer ($32) underneath BECCA Matte Skin Shine Proof Foundation and loving life

Ooh, gurl, have you heard the chismis?

(Chismis is Tagalog for “gossip.”)

Apparently, and you didn’t hear this from me, but Too Faced Hangover Primer is making MAC Prep + Prime Natural Radiance totally jealous with a capital J-E-L.

See, MAC Prep + Prime Natural Radiance and I — we roll deep. I’ve been using it almost daily for years.

The stuff works great, and I also love how it feels like a lotion going on. Plus, it doesn’t give me breakouts, for which it gets extra credit from me because almost everything gives my combo skin fits.

I can’t stand it when face primers feel heavy, you know, like they’re sitting in lounge chairs on my face.

Ugh! It gives me the willies just thinking about it…

Thankfully, MAC Prep + Prime doesn’t do that. It feels light and wonderful to me, and my skin looks like real skin when I wear it!

Well, like real skin…only more radiant and smoother. :)

Like I said, Prep + Prime and I have been buds for years, but lately I’ve been hanging out with this new Too Faced primer called Hangover, and after only two weeks, we’re already like this (you can’t see me, but I’m crossing my fingers here).

I’ve actually been reaching for Hangover’s silicone-free formula more than my bottle of Prep + Prime.

JEALOUSY!

So what is it supposed to do?

The Rock N Roll Palette by Too Faced Cosmetics: These Tough and Tender Jewel Tones Rock

Published in: Eyes, Makeup, Palettes, Product Reviews, Too Faced

Too Faced Rock N Roll Palette

Wearing the new Too Faced Rock N Roll Palette while doing my best impression of a vixen in an ’80s Billy Idol video

I’m about as rock ‘n’ roll as a porcelain cat figurine sitting on a lace doily, but I’m not gonna let that stop me from releasing my inner headbanger!

Rock, rock, rock, ROCK!

No, really. ’80s Billy Idol would totally hate me. He’d, like, sneer at me because I’d want to go home early because “I have to be in bed by 10.”

Actually 9:30. OK, 9.

But maybe he’d hate me less if I were wearing the new Too Faced Rock N Roll Palette ($36)…

Rock N Roll: what’s it all about?

Too Faced Rock N Roll Palette

The new Too Faced Rock N Roll Palette, $36

One of three palettes in the Too Faced Smitten Kitten collection for fall 2014 (the others are Country and Cat Eyes), Rock N Roll has a couple things in common with its siblings. Like the others, it houses nine eyeshadows in three rows, with each of the rows corresponding to a different makeup look — day, classic and fashion.

With a focus on jewel tones, Rock N Roll’s shadows are richer and more intense than the others, so if you like the way you look in jewels, and particularly if you have a medium or darker skin tone and don’t want to spend eternity packing on shadows to get them to show up on you, this one is definitely swatch worthy.

Someone’s been channeling Urban Decay

I’m thinking it. You’re thinking it. We’re all thinking it. So let’s just come out and say it. :)

These are some very UD-like colors — a deep green, a dark blue, an intense purple, and glitter for days.

That said, there are far worse things in life than channeling Urban Decay.

So, does it rock?

Rock N Roll’s colors have a harder edge to ‘em, but at the same time, I think they’re still very girly. It’s glam meets pretty — something I think Too Faced does exceptionally well. Perfect for a Too Faced Cosmetics girl going to a Metallica concert with her metalhead boyfriend, ya feel me?

[INSERT SIGN OF THE BEAST HERE, AND TRY NOT TO CONFUSE IT WITH "I LOVE YOU" WHEN YOU'RE IN HEAD-BANGING MODE.]

Too Faced Rock N Roll Palette

Rock on!

Think tough with a little tenderness to it. Even with the more intense shades, the darkest you get is navy blue Heavy Metal, deep green Punk and dark brown Ska, which, by the way, is like a shimmery version of MAC Brun (LOVE!). I’m wearing it in the crease in these pics.

Even then, the colors aren’t too harsh or dark.

What about wear time?

Let me put it this way: these shadows easily last through the encore. Same goes for the other fall palettes. With Rock N Roll, I get 8-10 hours with just a bit of fading starting around hour 8.

The right tools for the job

That’s Rockabilly along my brow bones, Ska in the crease, New Romantic on the inner half of my lids, Punk on my upper lash lines, Heavy Metal on my lower lash lines, and Rap in the inner corners

Incite Lipstick Envy This Fall With the New Smitten Kitten Collection La Creme and Melted Lipstick Shades

Too Faced La Creme Lipstick in Country Star

Wearing the new La Creme Lipstick in Country Star by Too Faced

I love me some sheer lip balm (lazy girl says haaaay!), but I’ll be the first to admit that when a girl walks by me wearing a snazzy lip that catches my eye and I’m wearing one of those nondescript barely-there shades I’m apt to do on any given day, my insides start metaphorically pounding the air with bratty baby fists, WAH!

I call it lipstick envy, and I’m totally guilty of having it.

Like, if you walked by me wearing one of the new shades from the Too Faced Smitten Kitten collection for fall 2014, I’d be going ape-sh*t inside.

This time around, Jerrod and crew added fun new shades of peach, pink, berry and purple to the La Creme Lipstick and Melted Lipstick lines.

All of the shades are eminently wearable, ’cause hello! — this is Too Faced, and they have the glam/girly/pretty corner of the makeup market down pat.

Peachy pinkish nude Country Star ($22), the new La Creme Lipstick shade in the release, is so creamy and smooth that it could almost pass for a gloss.

I have trouble with some nude lip colors washing me out (Or otherwise looking strange… You know how it is with some funky nude shades.), but this one doesn’t do that.

Unfortunately, it’s limited edition, so when it’s gone, you’ll find me in the corner with an embroidered lace hanky, daintily dabbing at glittery tears as they pool in the corners of my cat eyes. :(

Then there are the four new $21 Melted Long Wear Lipsticks in the launch, which are like intense liquid lipsticks with a glossy finish and a smooth texture. They join the permanent line.

The $36 Too Faced Country Nashville Nudes Eye Shadow Collection Palette Has Such a Cool Swagger

Published in: Collections, Eyes, Makeup, Palettes, Product Reviews, Too Faced

Too Faced Country Palette

That, little darlin’, is the new Country Nashville Nudes Eye Shadow Palette by Too Faced Cosmetics on my eyes, yee-haw!

Giddyup, girl! Let’s get a move on! Go grab your cutest dress, and I’ll get your boots, because we’re double-dating in Music City tonight!

Well, I mean, figuratively… Not in the literal sense, although I wish, right?! I’m referring to the new Country Nashville Nudes Eye Shadow Collection ($36) of nine powder shadows by Too Faced Cosmetics, the brand’s latest palette for fall.

This one’s all about country charm and the glamour of Nashville.

Too Faced Country Palette

A little bit country…

Versatile, like a country song that crosses over into the pop genre

It’s a versatile mix of beige, gold and pinky nudes peppered with deeper blues, purples, brown and gray — mostly in neutral and cooler color temps — but not so cool that warmer-toned vixens won’t also be able to wear it.

Too Faced Country Palette swatches from the left: Cowboy Take Me Away (a matte neutral peach), Y'All (a neutral gold) and Dolly (a cool satin plummy brown)

Swatches from the left: Cowboy Take Me Away (a matte neutral peach), Y’All (a neutral gold) and Dolly (a cool satin plummy brown)

Eight of the nine shadows contain varying levels of shimmer and glitter, while the other shade, a sheer, cool-toned peachy matte, adds a touch of contrast.

Too Faced Country Palette swatches: Famous in a Small Town (a frosty white beige), Paper roses (a shimmery golden peachy coral) and Rhinestone (a dark purple with glitter)

Compared to Rock ‘n’ Roll, its counterpart palette also released this fall, Country seems sweeter and more delicate to me — perfect for everyday glam (see: wearing wedding makeup on a random Wednesday).

Too Faced Country Palette swatches: All American Girl (a cool frosty silver), Nashville (a shimmery cool purplish taupe) and Bluebird (a shimmery navy blue with glitter)

Like a soft country song

Wearing Chanel Joues Constraste in Rose Dust (limited edition, discontinued; it’s basically a cool rosy matte pink) on my cheeks and Too Faced Perfect Lips Lip Liner in Perfect Pink topped with Dolce & Gabbana Lipstick in Petal on my lips

The nude shades here have a subtlety about them, and even with the darker blues, purples and brown, there’s nothing too hard-edged about this palette. The colors shouldn’t appear overly harsh, not even on the lightest lasses. That said, I think Country will rock hard on cooler toned cowgirls with light and medium skin tones.

Too cool for school, but not too cool

Perfect Pink

That’s purply taupe Nashville on my lids, matte peach Cowboy Take Me Away on my brow bones and inner corners, Bluebird on my upper lash lines and Dolly on my lower lash lines

The New Too Faced La Creme Lip Balms Make Perpetually Parched Pouts Go Ahh!

Published in: Lips, Makeup, Product Reviews, Too Faced

Too Faced La Creme Lip Gloss in Plum Crazy

Someone’s going Plum Crazy. Wait — I mean, someone’s wearing Plum Crazy, one of six shades in the new Too Faced La Creme Lip Gloss line ($22 each)

Yabba-dabba-doo and zip-a-dee-doo-dah! I’m wearing Plum Crazy from the new Too Faced La Creme Lip Gloss line, and it is the bomb!

LOL!

Sorry, the bomb? Lame ’90s reference. What can I say? It’s Friday afternoon, and all I want to do is sneak out of the office early and go watch a movie (I still haven’t seen Edge of Tomorrow).

Yeah, right. As if Tabs would ever allow me to peace out early (dare to dream). If he did, I’d definitely take one of the brand Too Faced La Creme Lip Balms with me. With their shiny finish and sheer tints, they’re super chill, and the ultra moisturizing formula feels goooood on my lips.

Too Faced La Creme Lip Balms

The brand new Too Faced La Creme Lip Balm line ($22, in the pink tubes), and one new La Creme Lipstick shade called Country Star ($22, in the gold tube)

There are currently six shades in the new line, and they more or less look the same on my perpetually parched and pigmented pout, but that’s OK. It means I only need one.

Or two.

OK, three. You know it is. #lipbalmhoarders :)

They feel rich and buttery on my lips and have a light citrus flavor and scent.

“This ultra-nourishing formula is saturated with antioxidant-rich White Lotus Flower Extract, Black Currant Seed Oil and Hyaluronic Filling Spheres, leaving your lips plump and irresistibly kissable.”

– Too Faced Cosmetics

I’d compare them to the $18 Tinted Lip Balms Benefit recently launched, but I wouldn’t exactly call them dupes. The La Creme Lip Balms cost a little more at $22, but you also get more pigment and moisture for that.

The La Cremes also feel slightly thicker to me and last longer on my lips. I’ve been applying Like Buttah, the clear shade, before bed, and I can still feel it there the next morning.

Too Faced La Creme Lip Balms Swatches from the left: Like Buttah (clear), Honey Bunny (a sheer nude), Peachy Keen (a sheer peach), Pink Slip (a sheer pink), Just Kissed (a sheer rose) and Plum Craze (a sheer plum)
