It’s not often one of the most fun brands in the business turns 20, so when they do it’s naturally an occasion to celebrate. And never ones to shy away from an out-there and funky make up range, Too Faced marked their birthday in style with the release of their Cheers to 20 Years Birthday Collection. Having become known for the fun palettes that pack a lot of pigment-punch and the fun colours and ranges that really helped make make-up more fun, it’s no surprise that the Cheers to 20 Years range is full of quirky and gorgeous goodies.
The collection showcases the Then & Now Palette which has the very first ever 10 Too Faced eyeshadow shades, along with 10 completely new shades too. All in a mixture of finishes. A huge palette with massive pans, it helped the die-hard Too Faced fans celebrate in style. But they also introduced a range of new lipsticks too – which really won my heart. The Throwback Lipsticks are also a twist on the original formulas and these really tickled my pickle when I saw them…
There’s nine shades to pick from and all of them have the brands notorious creamy texture. The payoff is smooth and rich, and each lipstick is packed with shimmer that creates a dimensional effect to the lips when applied. The glitter is fine so it’s not blotchy, but spreads to give a high metallic effect that looks pretty with the chosen shades. (Some of which are blue and purple – the ‘out there’ products we love to see from Too Faced!)
The lipsticks have to be my favourite in the collection – I’m a sucker for glittery and metallic lipsticks so I snapped up the three shades I felt I’d wear most: Miss Thing – a girly gold and warm tone, great alone or as a topper. Then TF 20 – a fuchia and rich pink that’s a bit of fun and great for party season and then Too Too Hot – the bright red with so much sparkle I adored it from first glance!
Also in the celebratory collection was a glittery Better Than Birthday Sex Mascara. Another twist on their current products – but this time their cult status mascara. I rebuy this time and time again and it never gets old. Few mascara’s are this good and it’s pretty make over was cute and much appreciated by me as a fan already. This one will make a gorgeous gift as the glitter gives it a nice touch.
So in celebration of Too Faced being one of my faourite brands, and turning the ripe old age of 2-0, it was important for me to support them and pick up these birthday bits and join the party!
