Too Faced’s Smurfette Collection Now Available Online!!

December 18, 2008

I used to love watching the Smurfs growing up, and of course Smurfette was my favorite. Too Faced’s Smurfette collection features smurfs, smurfs, and more smurfs–I’m loving how they pop against the black packaging! Will you be picking up anything?

So Smurfy Eyeshadow Collection ($32.50)
Too Faced So Smurfy Eye Shadow Collection contains four easy-to-use shades that can be used individually or together to create a signature Smurfette look. The velvety shadows glide on smoothly creating a seamless blend of gleaming color. Your pigment-drenched peepers will be left super Smurf-chic!

So Smurfy Illuminating Powder ($26)
Too Faced’s So Smurfy Illuminating Face Powder delivers complexion perfection. Smurfette’s signature color-correcting shades blend together for the prettiest perfection—you’re sure to be the hottest girl on your Smurf turf.

Mood Swing Emotionally Activated Gloss ($18.50)
An emotionally activated lip gloss that ranges from Smurf-blue shimmer to beautiful berry. Too Faced Smurfberry Mood Swing Emotionally Activated Lip Gloss allows you to wear your emotions on your lips. Depending on your body heat level, the gloss blooms into countless shades of Smurf-berry pink. You never know what shade you’ll get, but Smurfette thinks that’s part of the fun!

Smurfy-Eyed Liquid Liner ($17.50)
The Smurfette Collection Smurfy-Eyed Liquid Eyeliner lets you show off your Smurfette—inspired sparkles as you bat those eyes at every Smurf you see! You can use on the brows, hair, and anywhere else you want a special Smurf sparkle.

I happen to think everything is absolutely adorable, but with the way that I’ve been spending this month I don’t know if I’ll actually be getting anything. I’m leaning towards the illuminating powder and the gloss if anything, but we’ll have to see! And of course if I do get anything I’ll be reviewing it for you.

Too Faced ‘Glamour Eyes – Kipling’ Set

September 17, 2008
Too Faced ‘Glamour Eyes-Kipling’ Set ($29.50)
“Kipling and Too Faced have joined fabulous forces to bring every beauty addict the exclusive goodie bag of her dreams! Limited-edition black patent cosmetic bag is filled with four glamorous Too Faced favorites including mini deluxe Starry Eyed Liner in Ooh & Aah, Mini Lash Injection in Black, Duo Eye Shadow in Lovey Dovey, mini Shadow Insurance Deluxe Eyeshadow Primer, and a Kipling collectible monkey charm.”

While I’ll admit that I haven’t touched a Too Faced product in well over a year (not because I don’t like them–I’ve just had too many other pretties to play with), this adorable set has me sorely tempted. The freaky/scary collectible Kipling monkey and the black patent cosmetics bag are too cute, and all this plus four eye products for the great price of $29.50 doesn’t hurt either!

When I was younger I remember wanting a Kipling bag soooo bad just so that I could play with the little monkey keychains that came attached–please tell me I’m not the only one!

Too Faced Retractable Kabuki Brush Review

June 10, 2008
Too Faced Retractable Kabuki Brush: $28.50


I’m sure you all know by now that I’m a HUGE sucker for packaging. I loved this shimmery black box with the oh-so-cute cherry blossoms–very reminiscent of Takashi Murakami‘s early work for Louis Vuitton.


No teddy bears were harmed in the making of this brush…I promise!


I was looking for a good travel brush to apply my La Mer powder with (since I now have a travel size thanks to Nicole!) and came upon Too Faced’s Retractable Kabuki brush. How could I resist? It’s pink and shiny!!!

But I have to admit that I was a tiny bit disappointed after opening the package, since it wasn’t nearly as pink as I was expecting it to be (it’s more of a dark purple-y pink as you can see).


The metal encasing the brush isn’t as sturdy as I would’ve liked (not that it won’t protect the brush-just seems like it would be easily dented), but other than that this brush is absolutely wonderful!

As you can see in the photo above, once you pop the top off the brush there’s a retractable pink “sleeve” that slides up and down, meaning both that you can more easily get the lid back onto the brush, and that you can control the density of your bristles depending on the type of application you’re going for.


The bristles are heavenly! They’re so seriously soft and dense (perhaps a little too dense!) that I can’t help but pull this kabuki out just to run it across the back of my hand. Pretty much all of my brushes are comprised of natural bristles, but this is definitely the softest synthetic I’v ever felt.

Powder application is very easy as the bristles pick up powders very well. One minor problem is that, since the brush is super-dense, it can tend to buff out your foundation if you’re over-enthusiastic in applying your powder-a light touch is key. But this also means it’d be perfect for mineral foundation application! And of course the extreme density means that this brush will take FOREVER to dry once you’ve washed it.

$28.50 for a travel brush is a little much, but luckily I had a gift card and so my wallet didn’t feel the impact! It’s not really a must-have if you don’t touch up your makeup throughout the day, but if you do need a travel powder brush, this is one of the best (and prettiest) out there!

Have you tried this? Played with it at Sephora? Tell me what you think!
