Happy Face

Too Faced Happy Face Peach Frost Melting Powder Highlighter ($30.00 for 0.44 oz.) is a light, yellowed gold with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-sheer pigmentation that was buildable to medium coverage on the skin.

The formula is supposed to be a “cream-to-powder highlighter” that has a “buildable champagne peach radiance” that is best applied with “fingers or Kabuki brush.” The texture felt smooth to the touch, and initially, there was a bit of slip to the surface, but after I used it once, the remaining amount exposed was drier, almost powdery, but there was still some velvetiness that gave it a more cream-like feel than powder-like feel.

The sheen from this was noticeable but still on the more subtle side, which may appeal to some but anyone who wants a more moderate or intense highlight would likely want to look elsewhere. I did not like this formula with a brush, as the brush did not pick up much product and did not seem to distribute the product well onto the face–it was as if the product dried on my brush. Using fingertips, I was able to get more product to transfer onto my skin. It blended out nicely but was more challenging to blend out over foundation (liquid) as it tended to lift and cling to the foundation in places. On me, it lasted for six and a half hours on me.

I Want Kandee

Too Faced I Want Kandee Candy Eyes Eyeshadow Palette ($45.00 for 0.48 oz.) features mostly warm-toned shades with a few, slightly more neutral shades in it (like a taupe, plum, deep brown, and black). The overall quality was better than a lot of Too Faced palettes, though there were still some misses and shades that were prone to fading faster than average on me (without a primer). The formula was still on the thinner side, but most shades were fairly pigmented and not too powdery.

I don’t normally comment on packaging, unless there are noteworthy things to say about it, and that was the case here: it felt particularly well-done. The palette is housed in a tin that resembles a candy box and the back shows the eyeshadows as if they were chocolates in a box.

Spiced Peach

Too Faced Spiced Peach Peach My Cheeks Melting Powder Blush ($30.00 for 0.44 oz.) is a soft, medium-dark plummy brown with faint, golden pearl. It had more of a satin-to-pearl finish that gave the cheeks a luminous glow but wasn’t overtly shimmery. The texture was thin, a cross between cream and powder, as it did not have the slip or wetness of a typical cream but it wasn’t quite a powder. As soon as the product touched my skin, though, it felt like a powder. This was one of the more blendable shades in the line-up, though on bare skin, I could still see “dots” of color where it looked like the color sank into my pores rather than blended out evenly. It lasted for six and a half hours on me before fading.

Formula Overview

$30.00/0.44 oz. - $68.18 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be a "cream-to-powder blush" that has "buildable color" and a "creamy, velvety texture" paired with a "radiant-matte finish." The consistency felt creamy to the touch, but it also felt a little powdery. It had a candy-coated shell initially--very shiny--but after one or two uses, the texture looked more matte and felt a lot drier. It seemed almost as if it was drying out over time, so ultimately, it felt more like a powder going on most of the time.

The texture was thinner and while it was no trouble to diffuse the product across the skin, it did not do so that evenly, and I noticed a lot of color that seemed to sit in my pores (like dots of deeper color). The coverage was more buildable when applied with a fingertip, but it was a challenge to get more coverage that was still blended as the color seemed to disappear as I blended it out (even just a little). The only way I could manage decent application was patting color on the apples of the cheeks with fingertips and lightly pressing to blend, and then going back with a bit of foundation actually blend out the edges. The wear was short end on bare skin at six to seven hours.

Over foundation, they were worse, as they lifted liquid foundations a lot, which resulted in uneven coverage and some unevenness in overall texture, too, as the cream-to-powder formula caused clumping with my liquid foundations (I tried three different ones with this blush formula).

Sweetie Pie

Too Faced Sweetie Pie Sweetie Pie Radiant Matte Bronzer ($30.00 for 0.47 oz.) is a soft, medium brown with warmer undertones that were slightly rosy overall. There was an overspray, which would result in a more golden, shimmery finish initially, so I tried to remove using a brush but still found a lot of it leftover, so I used a paper towel and tried to rub away several layers of product for swatches and application swatches. Despite that, though, there still seemed to be a bit of pearl that gave it a more semi-matte to satin finish.

The bronzer is supposed to be a “radiance-boosting” powder with “blendable, intense color payoff” for “universal warmth.” It had excellent pigmentation with a soft, slightly dusty texture that was very blendable and easy to work with on the skin, but it was prone to sheering out a bit so the functional color payoff was more semi-opaque and buildable. The color ran lighter, so I would not expect this to work as a bronzer on medium-tan and deeper skin tones. The bronzer lasted for eight hours on me before fading slightly. It had a sweet, peachy scent but it did not linger noticeably on my face.

Sneak Peek: Too Faced Peaches & Cream Blushes, Bronzers, & Highlight Swatches

Too Faced Peaches & Cream Blushes
Too Faced Peaches & Cream Blushes

Too Faced Peaches & Cream Collection launched six new blushes, two bronzers, and a highlighter. The blushes, one bronzer, and highlighter have a cream-to-powder formula, while one bronzer is a traditional powder, though it had quite a bit of overspray, and even after using a paper towel to remove it, it still seemed to have some shimmer. They seemed more pigmented swatched over a small area but sheered out a lot more on the cheeks than anticipated. I need to test them more to have additional insight on them, as these are a new formula (Sweetie Bronzer seemed like a typical powder, though).
