Too faced I want kandee palette 

I was very hesitant on purchasing this palette. Why you may ask, because let’s be honest…. lately too faced hasn’t been doing so well.  I bit the bullet and went into Ulta and I swatched the palette and instantly fell in love. This palette has beautiful pigmentation and amazing neutral color selection…. if these colors speak to you, BUY IT! 

Some things to know:

  • This collection is Ulta exclusive 
  • Palette retails for $45
  • It’s actually called the candy eyes palette 

Let’s talk about the packaging. This palette comes in a tin that looks like an old school candy box. The back of the tin even features the shade named but with a candy picture… just like candy boxes do. The attention to detail is phenomenal on this packaging presentation. 



Once you open the tin you see a piece of thick waxy paper on top of the shadows (as if they were candy pieces). 


Now I know you’re sitting there like “SHOW US THE SHADOWS ALREADY” so let’s jump into it. 

Now onto the swatches 


Top to bottom:

  • Sparkling cider
  • Pastry
  • Sugared strawberry 
  • Cream puff
  • Sugar plum
  • Raspberry cocoa

Top to bottom:

  • Butterscotched
  • Sweet toffee 
  • Frosted pink
  • Hot chocolate 
  • Taupe berry
  • Licorice rope


Top to bottom:

  • Banana cream pie
  • Ice cream
  • Whipped cream

The swatches speak for themselves, Too Faced and Kandee Johnson did an amazing job on this palette and the entire I want kandee collection honestly. I would definitely recommend you pick this palette up!

Lorac Unzipped Palette

I know this palette isn’t anywhere near new, but it’s new to me. I’ve been eyeing up this palette for a long time…. my friend even suggested I get it because it’s “so me”.  I hesitated because of the fact that I already had so many palettes so did I really need another one? Once I found out it was going to be a part of ulta’s 21 days of beauty sale I knew I definitely needed another palette!

A few things to note about this palette:

  • total net wt .39oz/11.2g
  • $42 (But you can use ebates to get cash back)

I am loving these shadows! I personally think that it is worth the $42 price point. The blendability of the shadows, the one swipe pigmentation…what more could you ask for. If you’re into rosy-toned shadows you need to run out and pick this up! (or purchase it online using ebates to get cash back!)

I personally believe this palette is worth it to go pick up. Breath taking packaging, highly pigmented shadows… what more could you ask for? I do wish they would have added one or two more matte shades in here but since they didn’t that just means you’ll get use out of two palettes that day!

I highly recommend this palette.

Too Faced Cat Eyes Palette

Yes I  know this palette is not new but I found it for $14.99! Where would something that is normally $36 dollars be $14.99 you ask? MARSHALLS!

tfce1

I know the box says compare at $28 but all too faced 9 pan tins retail for $36.

The outside packaging is adorable! It features a leopard/cheetah print. Same size and shape as other too faced 9 pan tins.

tfce2

Enough about the outside, Im sure what you’re all waiting for is to see the inside!

tfce3

Beautiful selection of colors and the names are too stinking cute! I love how the too faced 9 pan tins all are seperated by day, classic, and fashion. It’s also nice that the last row can be used wet or dry or even as liner! Plus they all come with a little booklet over the mirror to show you three looks that you can achieve with each section! How awesome is that?

Now to show you the swatches! plus excuse my arm as I have a bit of an allergic reaction going on at the moment, I apologize.

Im going to do the swatches by row of day/classic/fashion.

As you saw above 3 shades are quite larger than the other 6, those shades are the top swatch of each photo.

  • Larger pans individually: Net wt. 2.0g/0.07 oz

  • Smaller pans individually: Net wt. 0.9g/0.03 oz

All in All I personally think the two faced palettes are worth the $36 dollars but if you can find some of them cheaper then definitely pick them up!

Moving onto the lipgloss! The lipgloss is honestly my favorite thing in this whole collection, it’s actually my favorite lipgloss I own! That says a lot beacuase I own tons of lipgloss. A lot of glosses can be too thick or too sticky and this is neither, the formula on this is perfection. The shade is a beautiful peachy nude color.

image4image1-4

Last but not least is the cutest little kabuki brush. Let me just say im 97% sure this brush is just for show. I don’t think it would work unless you’re in a pinch then maybe it would be beneficial. It is however very soft and dense!
