Wow I so can't believe all the hate this palette is getting all over the Interwebs lol. While it's definitely not for everyone, it's just a FUN palette with a fun theme and color scheme. I'm still playing with mine but so far I'm loving it. The most fun I've had with a palette in a long time. I wish that the shade Good Boy didn't have the sparkles in it because other than that it is just such a good yellow. This palette is also proof that swatches don't mean jack lol. Swatches do no justice and they apply to the eyes much better. FYI, Puppy Eyes looks like it would be a disappointing shade but it's a great topper/transformer. It can really help tone down the brighter shades and make them a bit more wearable, and it's absolutely stunning applied over Best Friends. All in all, I still think the Too Faced quality is still there and I'm really impressed.
It's a great serum, but I feel it's overpriced at $90. A cheaper alternative out there that I find to work just as well is Apha Skin Care's 14% Glycolic Renewal Serum and it's only $20. I'm all for investing in good treatment serums, but if there's a cheaper alternative that works just as well, I'm all about that too.
I got this in a two-piece sample kit with the Good Genes. I like it, but I won't be re-purchasing because it's simply too expensive. Almost $50 for a cleanser is ridiculous. I can get similar results from CeraVe cleansers for only $10-$15. I'd rather invest that kind of money in to a good treatment serum that will do more for my skin and not just rinsing it off.
I gotta say, I'm really impressed with this powder. It's one of the few colored setting powders that I can use more than one shade in and it doesn't look at all cakey. I just hate the packaging though. It's bulky and I hate that you can't remove the sifter to get at the last bit of remaining product.
I bought this palette because 1. It's a Naked palette and I have all the other Naked palettes, lol and 2. it's unlike any other palette I own since it's all warm tones with no other pops of color. The shadows are the same great Urban Decay quality that are very pigmented and blendable. The only downfall is most of the colors look too similar and therefore I feel the number of looks you can get with this are pretty limited. Pretty much all of the looks on YouTube pretty much all look very similar no matter what shades are used.
Review for: Fair (ultra porcelain, fairest of the fair) more...
I bought this when it debuted on QVC in a TSV. At first I wasn't real crazy about it, but that was because I was applying it with the included brush. I now find that I prefer to apply it with a damp beauty blender or my Real Techniques Multi-Tasking face brush. I wouldn't say it's full coverage like it claims, more like a solid medium. For fuller coverage I like to apply my bareMinerals foundation over it with a damp beauty blender as well. It's also nice that this has SPF 50.
The taste is great but boy these are dry AF. Such a shame because I love just about anything lemon and poppy seed flavor. If you're looking for a crumb cake that's super moist like the Hostess or Little Debbie, you won't find it here.
I so wanted to love this but the rum taste was just way too strong. My mother even commented that it tasted like lighter fluid. I did, however, loved how moist it was and the walnuts were a nice touch. The taste was just way too boozy. I much prefer the chocolate one over this. The rum taste is still there but much lighter. I still want badly to try the other flavors.
And while the alcohol burns off, I wouldn't recommend serving this to kids. They might not appreciate or like the strong rum taste.
I liked this much better than the Original. I just felt the Original tasted too boozy. I feel this is more balanced. You get a rich chocolate flavor (this cake is almost BLACK lol) and you get the rum taste and they just both compliment each other very well. What I can't get over though is how MOIST these cakes are (the Original as well). I thought they'd be super dry and dense but they're not. They're nice and moist and spongy. I'd still like to try the other flavors though.
