*Cookies not included

When I received this collection from Too Faced this week, they included some adorable cookies with my package. While these cookies are not included in the collection, I couldn't resist using them as props because, duh. How cute are these? 

Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush in Candy Glow

All three shades swatched individually

All three shades blended together

Since I have only had this set for less than a week, that's not nearly enough time to give you a full review of these products, but I can certainly tell you what I think of everything so far.

In the short amount of time that I've used these products, this blush one of my favorite items so far. Two of the shades contain shimmer and fine sparkle (the center shade isn't super shimmery, but it does contain fine sparkle), and together all three shades produce a lovely pink glow on my cheeks. This blush is easy to control, and you can build for intensity. The first application delivers a soft flush of color but, after building, you can increase the pigmentation, no problem. I love that the finish looks almost dewy on the skin, and the formula blends so nicely. It's a joy to wear. 

PS: Looking at the reviews on the Too Faced website, I see that customers have said that they wear it daily and even after a few months, it doesn't look like you've even put a dent in it.

Limited edition cruelty-free Teddy Bear Hair Powder Brush

I have tried this brush with the Sweethearts Blush and also with my own face powder. This brush is very soft, and feels quite nice on the skin. It is a full-size brush (not travel-size). I think I prefer it for face powder application, because I like the way it applies and blends my setting powder. It works fine with the Sweethearts Blush, but I just prefer a smaller, angled brush for blush application. Oh, and can we talk about the cuteness factor for a second? So adorable.

Bulletproof Brows and double-ended brush
(Pictured: Taupe. You will have your choice of Taupe or Brunette)

Again, you will have your choice of Taupe or Brunette if you order this collection; I received Taupe. This color is actually a very nice fit for me, since I prefer cooler-toned taupes for my brows. This shade doesn't have the strong red undertones that some light brown brow products tend to have, so I really appreciate that because I can't do super warm tones when it comes to my brows. I've only used this three times so far, but I can tell you that it really does not budge once it sets. In fact, I can't remove it completely with just a makeup towelette--I need to use makeup remover. I also like that it's creamy, but not oily. It's easy to apply in short, quick strokes with the accompanying brush, and it adheres to my skin (bald spots) very nicely. It also does a nice job at taming some of my more wonky hairs, which is an added bonus. Oh, I also want to mention that I've heard that some people have had issues with this product drying out after a while. I've heard that to solve this issue, you should store the pot upside-down. Just something to keep in mind if you order this collection.

Better Than Sex Mascara

There are a zillion and one reviews of this famous mascara on the internet, so I won't spend too much time talking about it. I think it's one of those mascaras that everyone should try at least once--there are a lot of devotees out there so, if you haven't tried it yet, this set is a nice way to do so. 

La Crรฉme Lipstick in Sugar Daddy

One swipe, three swipes

As you can see, Sugar Daddy leans a bit warm on my skin (warmer than it looks in the tube). On my lips, this is a nude shade, but it's not a concealer-as-lipstick type of nude. It's deeper than that, and again, it has some warmth to it. I like it quite a bit on me and if you haven't tried this formula yet, it is probably one of the most moisturizing, creamy formulas I have in my collection. It seriously feels like a creamy lip balm on the lips, rather than a lipstick. It delivers some nice shine as well as color so, if you like your lipsticks hydrating and glossy, I'm guessing you'll love this one.

Just the Bulletproof Brows ($30) and Sweethearts Blush ($30) add up to well over the price of this entire collection ($49 + free shipping and FlexPay), so this is a great way to try these products or, if you're feeling generous, give them as gifts for the holidays.

Again, this collection is only available for a limited time and once it's gone, it's gone. This collection is live NOW and you can order it HERE for $49 ($137 value) with free shipping and FlexPay. This will be the Today's Special on Tuesday, November 17th (air-times listed at the beginning of this post if you'd like to check out live presentations).

And just a reminder: I'm partnering with Too Faced to host a giveaway for this collection on my Instagram page HERE tomorrow (11/16). Be sure to follow Too Faced and me on Instagram and follow the instructions on my giveaway post tomorrow, because one lucky winner will receive this limited edition collection (the Instagram giveaway will start at 6AM EST on 11/16 and end that night at 11:59PM EST).

  1. This collection is awesome! It's my first time ordering with HSN, so I was just able to get it for $29 with the coupon code 150136!! Thanks G!!

    1. Thanks so much! I actually didn't know it was live until just now. Thank you for taking the time to let me know (and congrats!).

    2. Me too. The 20 dollars off made it an even better deal. Couldn't pass it up. The better than sex mascara is one of my favorites.

    3. My mind is blown. Once the shopping cart total went down to $30, I had to hold back from buying 6 of these.

      Kristina and G., you two are the real MVP

    4. Bummer, I'm a first time customer but I'm getting an error saying that code is not applicable to this product. They must have changed it. :/

    5. Hi! The code isn't working for me. I copied and pasted it...anything I'm doing wrong? Thanks!

    6. This comment has been removed by the author.

  2. This is such a great deal for everything you get!!! The one thing I love more than makeup is practically free makeup like you get here.

    I have plenty of lipsticks and blushes, but that brow brush and mascara.....ugh! Want! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

    1. I agree! It breaks down to $10 per item, which you just can't beat, right? I hope you enjoy it if you order! :)

  3. Crud. I was hoping, as I was reading, that I wouldn't like it. The brow color in taupe...normally I'd think I would need darker but, it's perfect. The lip color...great too. Between the clearinghouse of product and sale info that your site is and then seeing swatches like these, you make it difficult to keep my wallet put away.

    1. Aaah, thank you so much! Lol! Well at least they're temptations....on a budget! ;)

  4. Yay!! Can't wait for tomorrow๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†

    1. Thank you! And best of luck if you enter! :)

  5. You can also get 20% off by using the code 158444!!!!!!!

    1. Thanks so much, Nauzi! I didn't realize that link was live until just now, so that's awesome!!! :)

  6. You can also get 35% off of HangoveRx with the purchase of that kit!!!

  7. Well G., I am going to enter the give away, though I never win! I am so tempted to just buy this now. Of course in the off chance I do win, I can return it!!! LOL This is a really pretty set. Perhaps I can give it to my husband to give to me for Christmas!!!

  8. I downloaded instagram just for this giveaway but turns out my iphone doesn't give the option to give instagram access to my library... There goes my chance... :(

  9. Oh. My.

    I have been lusting after that blush FOR MONTHS - but I was waiting for a kit to come out. Now I have one. Methinks I'll be ordering this set. Did you see the additional promo: when you get that kit, you can then get 35% off some primer, and 30% off the BeautyBlender? WOWZA!

  10. Just a tip on the la cream comes summer keep it in a cool place or the fridge. my lipstick melted in alabama and I've been using a lip brush ever since.

  11. Replies
    1. That's because it was only $49 when it was Today's Special on 11/17. Per my post, it will never be on sale at that price again, so that's why it's $59 now. Hope that helps!
