It’s here, it’s here! I finally got my Too Faced Mystery Box from their $35 Cyber Monday deal! I’ve been calling my husband on my lunch break EVERY day since I ordered this to ask if it was at the house yet. Much to my surprise it was still outside the front door when I got home yesterday and I couldn’t have been more excited 🙂
Smokey Eye Palette $36
I have to admit that I was really disappointed to see the Smokey Eye palette simply for the fact that I just bought it at Nordstrom Rack for like $15. I was kind of hoping they had included that Natural Eyes palette since I missed out the $15 deal they were doing Black Friday. But otherwise it’s a beautiful palette and now one less gift I’ve got to buy my sister :-X Bahahaha, shhhhhh, don’t tell.
Makeup Brush Set $65
You know that feeling that you have when you have to go buy something stupid but necessary? Like socks? Or PMS panties? That’s how I feel about makeup brushes. But that is exactly why I was glad to see this set! It sales for $65 on their site which is particularly tickling my fancy cause hell will freeze before I spend that much on brushes voluntarily. I was so excited (well, that and all my other brushes were dirty) that I used this set for my ROY G BIV (click here if you missed it) look last night after work and I am quite impressed.
Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer $30
As a fair skinned chick, I have adopted a Zero Tolerance policy for bronzers that shimmer. I’ve tried and tried again only for the end result to look like Tinkerbell has left skid-marks on my face. Ewwww? Exactly. So I have to admit that this bronzer is 1 of like 5 things in my makeup routine that I use EVERY SINGLE DAY and I was FREAKING ecstatic to get this!
La Crème Color Drenched Lipstick $22
Fun fact about Kaily : I hate ANY feeling wet. Wet hair? Hate it. Dewy foundation? Hate it. Glossy lips? Hate them. Ergo, lipstick is not really my thing. But I actually enjoy these! I have [one] in Teddy Berry that I featured in my October Favorites (check it out here if you missed it), but the $22 price tag is the only reason I don’t have more. At $6.88, I was hoping that the Flower lip-butters would be a good dupe, but so far I’m not impressed. You’re getting off track, Kaily! Point : LOVE.
Better than Sex Mascara Deluxe Sample
Uh, no… no it’s not. BUT it is my favorite cruelty-free mascara and I’m super happy it was included 🙂
Lip Injection Power Plumping Lip Gloss Sample
I don’t think I will like this due to the not liking the feel of wet lips thing but if it will make my lips look larger it might be a good thing to keep on hand for pictures! I’m excited to test this puppy out 🙂
Tinted Beauty Balm Sample
This doesn’t match my skin tone but I don’t mind because it’s just a bonus sample. I will give this to my mother in law to test out since it will suit her better 🙂
Final Thoughts and Total $150 +
Wow. I’m really happy I spent the $35 + tax on this guy. Sometimes companies only include items that don’t sale or are already on clearance in their value boxes (which I don’t mind most of the time) but Too Faced didn’t do that at all! Or at least I don’t feel like they did. I’m really happy with this purchase and can’t wait to see what they do next year 🙂
