Too Faced Christmas in New York: The Chocolate Shop


 Okay... so I know I haven't posted in nearly 2 years! But today I just had a huge urge to make a post on this Too Faced gift set that I received for Christmas. This set is way too pretty to not take photos of. The pink packaging and New York theme of Too Faced's 2016 Christmas collection is too die for.



 I love all of the detail in the packaging.


 The set comes with an eye primer, a mascara, a liquid lipstick and a palette with 21 eye shadows, a highlighter, bronzer, and a blush!




 The Better Than Sex mascara is my absolute favorite and I have been wanting to try the melted lipstick for a while! Plus I am always needing eye primer.


 18 of the eye shadows are 0.03 oz. and 3 are 0.07 oz. There is an amazing variety of shade, many which are perfect for the holiday and many are perfect for everyday. Each shadow has a unique holiday themed name. The blush is the most unique shade of blush I've ever seen! I forgot to mention the entire palette as well as the liquid lipstick have a decadent chocolate scent.







 From left to right: Sugared Raisin, Huckleberry, Jingle Berry, Banana Date, Butterscotch, Gingerdoodle (I think..!), then the Innerlight luminizer, and the Chocolate Covered Strawberry blush.
The pigmentation varies between the shadows and for the most part they have a fair pigmentation. They aren't as pigmented as I hoped but I assume using a primer would boost the color payoff.




 The lipstick isn't matte (I love matte) but I actually do not mine the slight gloss. The color is a bit too orange-based for me but I will continue to give it a go.

New at the drugstore ~ August 2015


 I recently found a few new products at the drugstore so I thought I would share. I haven't been buying a ton of new makeup recently so hopefully I can try some of these new products!


 What caught my eye the most were the new Baby Lips lip glosses! These finally hit Canada! They are way smaller than I expected but there are a few nice shades. A lot of the shades are glittery and look targeted to quite a younger crowd possibly. They are $5 each which seems pretty pricey for their size.


 Maybelline also came out with some Color blur matte pencils. These were nearly $10 and had 10 nice shades!


 L'Oreal has new liquid illuminators in 3 shades for $12.96 each.



 Covergirl also has a new luminous product: their stay luminous foundation. This probably wouldn't work for me since I prefer to stay matte.


 Not sure if this is new but I noticed wet n wild had lashes!


 Revlon has some new polish duos out.



That's all I found!

LORAC PRO Palette


 I had wanted to try out the LORAC PRO Palette for a while now. I've never seen it anywhere in Canada so when I found it in Kohls in Vegas I bought it. I believe it was $42 or something like that. The shades are all neutral. Half a matte and half a shimmery. The colors all compliment each-other nicely so I thought I could make some nice looks with it.

 

 It also came with a mini eye primer which I actually really enjoy!


 The shades are all quite pretty. They are fairly pigmented but not as much as I expected. I feel like a need to layer them a bi before I get my desired look. The are fairly bendable.  I must say, I do prefer my NAKED 2 palette.





It was a nice change for my eyeshadow collection. Althought if I could go back, I probably wouldn't buy it again.

Overall I'd give this a 7/10.
