Too Faced The Sweeter Side of Sexy Makeup Collection

Too Faced The Sweeter Side of Sexy Makeup Collection

I have very few weaknesses and a strong will. However, when my weaknesses are combined I'm as powerless as Superman in a bed of Kryptonite. That's what happened when Too Faced and HSN teamed up to release The Sweeter Side of Sexy Makeup Collection at the "today's special" value price of $49.00. Seriously. Four full size pieces of best selling and proven to perform Too Faced products for the price of one!? Si, por favor.

The collection includes:

  • Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Shadow Palette $49
  • Love Flush Blush $26
  • Better Than Sex Mascara $23
  • Shadow Insurance $20

The first thing I did after receiving the collection was make sure everyone I knew got a chance to smell it. The lovely, delicate chocolate scent is hypnotizing. I almost wanted to lick the palette. Instead I refrained and started playing with the shades.

After applying my face make up, I applied the Shadow Insurance to my eyelids using a drop on my ring finger. A tiny bit of this product goes a long way! It dries quickly and without feeling sticky or greasy. The consistency is perfect and I found the shadow really adhered to the primer. 

  1. I started with Butter Pecan as the base color from the crease of my eyelid all the way up to the brow bone.
  2. Next, I swept and patted Caramel onto my eyelid brushing up slightly past the crease, but not much.
  3. I placed a small amount of Rum Raisin onto the tip of my brush and applied that to the inside corners of my eyes (top and bottom).
  4. Next, I applied Hot Fudge into the outer crease and outer "v" of each eye lid.
  5. For sparkle, I patted a tiny sprinkle of Pink Sugar into the center of each eyelid with my pinky finger. 
  6. Then I finished the look by lining my top and bottom lashes with the Licorice shadow.
  7. After that I used an eyelash curler before applying two coats of the mascara.
  8. I used my NYX contour palette for my cheeks then swept the Justify My Love Love blush over that for a pretty but warm finish.

I am in love with this collection and look forward to so many more tasty good looks! The shadow color lasted through a day of work and a 30 minute treadmill run without fading or running. The blush did eventually come off, but only after I was sweating at the gym. I worried the pink color would be...too pink, but using a light hand and applying it up high on my cheeks after a subtle contour really made the blush look natural on my olive skin. My only complaint is that the Pink Sugar color has a lot of fallout. I recommend applying it with a finger in small amounts and building up as needed.

This collection sold out immediately on HSN, hopefully it will be available again soon. This makes an awesome gift!
