But first, lemme take a selfie!

And put on some bronzer… I can do both with these new products from Too Faced.

One is a miniature version of their ginormous Little Black Book of Bronzers, and the other is a palette with three face powders designed to create different lighting effects (think the Hourglass Ambients).

Power to the palettes! — especially ones that help you look cute in selfies. :)

As always, thank you for watching.

The Little Black Book of Bronzers Bronzer Collection by Too Faced Cosmetics: If You Like Bronzer, This Book Has All the Right Contacts

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

The Little Black Book of Bronzers Bronzer Collection

Once upon a time, there was The Little Black Book of Bronzers…

The last time Too Faced released a Little Black Book of Bronzers, it was HUGE!

No, literally, it was huge… The palette (or, as Too Faced refers to it, the “bronzing wardrobe”) held eight full-size Too Faced Bronzers, which was very cool if you were/are into the whole “bigger is better” aesthetic, and also very cool if you ever dreamed of owning a palette so gigantic that it could cover half of your body.

This time around, the sequel to The Little Black Book of Bronzers is sleek.

Ish. Sleek-ish.

It’s basically the same idea, except that the pans are smaller this time (0.08 ounces each, instead of 0.28), and the price is too ($49 vs. $139)

So, while you may lose the ability to use it as an improv table for TV dinners or breakfast in bed, and it no longer functions as an umbrella with which to shield yourself from the sun while lounging on the beach with Zac Efron…it’s a lot easier to tote around.

Plus, you know what they say: “Good things come in small packages.” If the original was an oversized coffee table book, this one is the paperback.

A bronzer for every mood, outfit and moment

Too Faced also tweaked the lineup a little, swapping Bronzed and Poreless for Dark Chocolate Soleil, their newest shade.

Other than that, there’s a good variety of shimmery finishes and mattes, and none of them are excessively warm or orange.

With eight bronzers, there’s one to go with every mood, outfit and moment in yo’ life. Like, have you ever wondered what bronzer to wear to go to your ex’s house to pick up those Biggie CDs that homeboy never had the decency to return?

Well, how about deep shimmery bronzed Beach Bunny? — because you’d want to recreate a glow that says, “Hey, fool. Ever since we broke up, I spend every Sunday by the pool at the Four Seasons with my new billionaire boyfriend.”

Ya know, that kind of thing. :)

Bonjour, puppy!

Now, this isn’t just some random chihuahua wearing a jaunty cap in front of an iconic structure.

No, this pup has a job. He’s here to demonstrate what the three face powders in the new Too Faced Selfie Powders Palette ($36) are supposed to do for your skin.

Or, you know, fur. :)

They’re supposed to work like Instagram filters for your face, with each one producing a different effect.

Sunrise brightens and warms (ooh! — kinda like the Valencia filter), Totally Toasted creates a bronzy glow, and lavender Moon River casts a cool, ethereal light.

90 Seconds With the Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Eye Palette

Published in: Eyes, Palettes, Too Faced, Video

Hello from Sniffles McGoo! *sniffle*

I can’t even recognize my voice right now. (In real life. Not in this video, because I recorded it a couple days ago, pre-cold.) I sound like a cartoon character.

This is just a quick look at the palette I used for my blueberry truffle look the other day, the Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Eye Palette.

It’s a good one for warm neutral looks, and of course I love the pop of blue in the center.

Blueberry Truffle Me: A Chocolate-Inspired Makeup Look With the New Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Eye Palette

Published in: Face of the Day (FOTD), Too Faced

Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette

A makeup look inspired by blueberry truffles!

Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar PaletteBlueberry truffles: health food of the future?

I wish. But seriously, I’m coming down with a cold right now, and I’m pretty sure there are antioxidants in both blueberries AND chocolate, soooo…I should probably be eating way more blueberry truffles.

Here’s a look inspired by one of my sweetest loves, blueberry truffles, and I used the deliciously named Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar palette.

I got the idea for this blue and chocolate brown eye look while doing Valentine’s chocolate-themed makeup “research” at See’s Candies (read: biting into the Blueberry Truffle sample the nice lady at See’s gave me).

Incidentally, I live dangerously close to the Novato Vintage Oaks See’s Candies, and if I hit all the green lights, I can get there in three minutes.

I’m just sayin’.

I was in the early stages of choco-ecstasy (it’s a real thing!) when I saw this look clearly in my endorphin-flooded mind — shimmery blue lids, a warm matte brown crease, blue smudged along the lower lash lines, lashes loaded with mascara, and everything surrounded by a soft, smokey haze.

Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette

I’m wearing Too Faced La Creme Lipstick in Nude Beach topped with NARS Turkish Delight Lipgloss on my lips.

The first palette I thought of was the Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar ($49), the brand’s new chocolate-scented spring eyeshadow palette.

Excuse me a moment while I open it and take a sniff.

Ah… :)
