It's a Too Faced kinda summer

One of my long-time favorite makeup brands, Too Faced, has come out with some new summer products that are sure to please. First let me tell you why they are one of my top brands, and then you'll know why I get excited every time they come out with new collections. I personally think (and I'm sure others will agree) that Too Faced is one of those rare finds: quality, long-wearing makeup, for a great price. They don't skimp on quality just to be wallet-friendly, so they've never failed to amaze me. From the most wearable colors to the funkiest colors, all in adorable packaging, every item the brand produces is well thought out.
Now that I've gone on that little tangent, I think it's safe to say that this is a brand that I know and trust. You trust me? Then let me take you on a little Too Faced summer adventure.
Retractable Bronze-Buki brush ($34)- Too Faced has earned quite a lot of respect because of their use of "Teddy Bear Hair", a cruelty-free alternative to makeup brushes. Rather than natural hair brushes, Too Faced uses soft, synthetic bristles that are easy to clean and high quality. The Bronze-Buki retractable brush is purse-size and gives great control with your application. Layered bristles give a flawless application with long, think bristles that pick up the perfect amount of color, and short, dense bristles that make it easy to blend the color.
The Bronzed & The Beautiful ($38)- in typical Too Faced fashion they've blessed us with one of their affordable color palettes, only this time it's a bronzer collection. The kit includes Sun Bunny bronzer which, as the name implies, gives a shimmering, sun-kissed glow. It also includes one of my personal faves, Snow Bunny. To round out the palette there is a Powdered Sun highlighter exclusive to this palette, and a matte Chocolate Soleil that is infused with cocoa (and actually smells good enough to eat!). Besides the powders, there is a mini Primed & Poreless SPF20 Tinted Primer that is perfect to throw in your purse. Which brings me too...
Primed & Poreless SPF20 Tinted Primer in Bronze Tint ($30)- For those who don't know Primed & Poreless, it's a skin-smoothing primer that is made to work on all skin tones like some sort of magic potion that makes your imperfections disappear. I don't know how it works, but I know that it does. Now they've come out with the Bronze Tint that warms up your skin tone under your foundation or underneath your bronzers. This is not your typical primer in that it is actually made to improve you complexion with mulberry extract, Camellia extract, Retinol Palmitate and Vitamin A. Oh, and there's the SPF20 to help prevent sun damage.
Now that you've got your bronze going, it's time to consider your flush.
Full Bloom cheek colors come in a cream version ($21 for lip & cheek) or a powder blush ($19), that can be worn seperately or paired together. I'm personally a huge fan of cream blush formulas because they look super natural. This particular formula contains flower extracts , avocado, and vitamins A through F to promote skin health.

2 new shades have been added to the Glamour Gloss collection ($19) to go along with your perfectly hued cheeks: This Is Pretty! and Chihuahua Bite. These lip glosses contain Lip Injection Comfort Plump, which is a formula made to have a natural plumping effect, rather than the stinging and burning of pumping glosses of yore. Rich in Omegas 3, 6, and 9, vitamin E, jojoba and avocado oils, these long-wearing gloss shades are also very nourishing.
Of course I saved the best for last. Size Queen mascara has the biggest application brush I've ever seen!
This brush is like nothing I've ever seen before. The corkscrew bristles come in long and short lengths to help coat every lash with their keratin-infused formula. Panthenol, vitamins C and E, and Red Algae volumizes, curls, and moisturizes lashes in just one coat.
This mascara is exclusive to Sephora. All other products are available at, Sephora, and Ulta stores now.
