I previewed Too Faced’s new new neutrals there a couple of weeks ago and have been giving some of them a whirl too. A couple of the duos are just too warm for my complexion and make me look tired, but Sexpresso Peach Fuzz, €17.50, is lovely.
Decent pigment and nice shades make this little pot a really good half-way house for a gal who’s finding she’s a bit beyond the bling of Urban Decay, but who refuses to accept that the time might be nigh to worship at the altar of Bobbi Brown.
A lovely subtle sparkly pinky-cream is good for use all over the lid – a close-up is above – and while it’s glittery, it’s subtle. So subtle, I’ve been wearing it to work a lot recently and no one has taken me to task for looking like a painted whore at 11am of a monday morning. Fall-out doesn’t seem to be a big problem with it either.
The dark shade is in truth a bit too dark to use in the crease alone with the sparkly cream – the contrast is too DRAMZ for me, but does make for a good liner when used wet, and delivers a less dramatic look than black – which I’ve almost entirely stopped wearing, finding it looks wayyy too harsh on me these days.
