Too Faced Sweet Peach Collection: Review

Sweet Peach Collection

Hey people, I am speaking about the Too Faced – Sweet Peach Collection…I love everything peach; clothes, tea, paint and most of all, makeup! When Too Faced announced that they would be launching a peach eyeshadow palette, well I did a happy dance.; I had been waiting for someone to come up with a peach inspired eyeshadow palette and Too Faced did it; so when I heard when the launch date would be, I ran to my favourite Sephora store and grabbed it. It was beautiful, perfect, a great combination of matte and shimmer shades; there was a great variety of not only peach shades, but also colours that perfectly complemented the peach!!! Best of all, it smells like peach sour candies. At the time, I was kicking myself for not grabbing two but…

Enter the launch of the Too Faced Sweet Peach Collection, I’m assuming because of the outpouring of love for the eyeshadow palette, they decided to expand the line. The new products that joined the Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette are: Sweet Peach Glow Peach-Infused Highlighting Palette; Sweet Peach Creamy Peach Oil Lip Gloss which comes in eight colours and the Sweet Peach Papa Don’t Peach Blush, which I don’t have a picture of because I didn’t buy it…yet. Also, I bought another peach eyeshadow palette!!!

There are so many things to love about these products: the eyeshadow palette has varying shades of peach as well as complimentary colours; all of the products smell like peaches, sweet peaches; the lip glosses are creamy and long-lasting and as I have naturally dry lips they are uber hydrating; the highlighting palette, well; the blush is the perfect shade of peach, the highlighter gives my face a brilliant glow, and the bronzer can be used all over the face. 

When I think of the colour peach, I think of Spring and Summer but I plan to wear these products all year round because they make me feel pretty and some days well; I just want to feel naturally pretty and feminine. Even if it’s the middle of winter, with snow on the ground, I will wear peach…



These are a Few of My New Favourite Things

Hey people, I want to share with you some of my new favourite beauty products…I think I’ll start with hair and the product that I want to share is mousse. It all started when I needed to find a salon closer to home. I had been driving into downtown Vancouver for years because I have very thick and coarse hair and I am very particular about my hair. I found this great little salon in White Rock, about a half hour from my house and I love it. My stylist is fantastic, parking is free and everyone is wonderful. After the second time I had my hair done, I asked the receptionist what my stylist put in my hair. I was a little concerned when she said mousse because I hadn’t had great experiences with mousse but the receptionist said that this mousse was fantastic, so I bought it. It is fantastic; it is light, doesn’t get sticky when my hair gets wet, and it leaves my hair so soft and manageable!!!! It is made by a company called R+Co and it is called Chiffon, it has this beautiful scent and gives my hair a beautiful shine. Pick some up if you can.

I have fallen in love with these two products for the face; I received them as a trial size set, there were five products in the set, I gave Katarina three and I kept the other two. These products are from First Aid Beauty or FAB and one of the many things I love about FAB is that it is affordable, relatively speaking of course. FAB can be purchased in store at Ulta beauty and Sephora or online at http://www.ulta.comhttp://www.sephora.com, and The first product is a face cleanser and is described as “a fragrance-free, gentle cleanser that effectively removes makeup, dirt, and grime, leaving skin soft and supple. The whipped texture transforms into a sumptuous cream when blended with water.” It is good for these skin types: normal, oily, dry sensitive, and combination. I love this cleanser, it leaves my skin soft and feeling clean but not tight and irritated and it doesn’t make my face go all red. It is amazing and I can use it with moisturizers that aren’t FAB!!! 

And speaking of moisturizers…the other product that I took from the trial set is FAB’s Hello FAB Coconut Skin Smoothie Priming Moisturizer which is a mouthful but it is fabulous. It is described as “Makeup meets skincare with this two-in-one moisturizer and makeup-gripping primer. Formulated with superfood ingredients that are rich in vital proteins, electrolytes, and minerals and infused with a natural coconut scent, this priming moisturizer hydrates and smooths skin as light-reflecting micro-pearls impart a dewy luminosity. The result is beautiful, healthy-looking skin when worn alone and long-lasting makeup when used as a prep step.” I wore it one day alone and my skin was beautiful, dewy, smooth and natural glow. I will be buying the full size bottle and it may just be my favourite moisturizer of all time!!! I haven’t used it without adding primer before my foundation yet but I will do that tomorrow and take a picture to show you how it looks and works.
