I will fully admit that I am a skeptic of expensive makeup. I don’t believe in paying for brand name and I do think that with some products, that is exactly what you are doing. I have been a firmly drugstore gal for a long time and I maintain that there are so many amazing drugstore products that can compete with high end products any day. However, I recently decided that by writing off all high end products I might have been being unfairly judgemental. Some ingredients must cost more so surely some products cost more due to this? I would pay for a higher quality product!
Still I was reluctant to fork over my hard earned money without being absolutely sure that I was getting a quality product! I ended up trying a few products while visiting a friend and I finally decided to splurge!
Too Faced – Too Good to Resist!
The products I decided to spring for were both from Too Faced. The first was the Better Than Sex mascara, which did totally rock my world! I am an eyeliner addict, I don’t think I’ve left the house without it for several years, but this mascara changed that. Not only does it lengthen, it adds insane volume – enough that I feel like I do not have to wear eyeliner with it. I am a big advocate for a strong mascara, it opens your eyes and wakes up your face more than any other product, so this was an amazing find!
The second product in my splurge was the Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer. If you happen to have ever seen my face, you’ll know that I am rather pale. I buy the lightest color foundation made and it’s still too dark level pale! Finding a bronzing or contouring shade that is both light and neutral enough to be used during the day is a rare occurrence for me and this was just the ticket! You get very good color payoff but it isn’t too dark and it blends easily.
No discussion of Too Faced products is complete without a mention of the scent! This is a Chocolate bronzer and it smells like it! I would go as far as to say that this bronzer smells delicious! Definitely a nice touch that makes the experience of using it a special one!
I do feel that these products are worth the money. They apply exactly how I want which saves me time in the morning as well as making for an enjoyable application.
Now that I’ve dipped my toe into more high end makeup – what should I try next? Leave your recommendations in a comment below so I can check them out!
