This time of year always has me feeling a little spendy. So many brands are bringing out exciting holiday offerings and I tend to just fall in love with beauty all over again. I got the chance to head over to Mecca’s new Chadstone store a while back and choose a couple of things to pick up. Yet somehow I ended up spending most of my time at the Too Faced stand. I love everything I’ve had from the brand in the past so, when Mecca generously gave me a gift card to spend, most of it went towards a few new bits from the Too Faced range.
I’m always searching for new bronzers that work for pale beauty lovers such as myself and the Milk Chocolate shade is often touted as a favourite. Since picking this up, I’ve been using this pretty much non-stop and can’t get enough. It’s a beautiful matte shade that adds warmth and definition to my cheekbones without ever pulling orange or looking patchy. It’s a great one for beginners, in particular, because it’s essentially impossible to stuff up.
I’ve always assumed this Glitter Glue primer was simply too good to be true. But my friend Sam continues to sing it’s praises, so I thought I better take notice. I had a play in store and was instantly blown away. When used as a base for shimmers, it makes them much more vibrant and keeps them looking that way all day long. This will definitely be a game-changer. I’ve used it in the swatches below with the Ciate x Chloe Morello palette to demonstrate how much of a difference it can make.

The final purchase was one that had been on the wishlist since I first heard about the lauch. I’m a huge fan of the original Better Than Sex mascara but at heart, I’ll always prefer a waterproof alternative. I find that they just hold a curl so much better, my number one priority when it comes to mascara. I’ve only had the chance to try this a couple of times but I can already tell you how impressed I am. The formula kept my lashes curled all day and did a brilliant job of separating and lengthening, too. My lashes never look this good unless I’ve recently had a lash lift!
These three new additions have all been received with so much love, it would seem that Too Faced will never let me down!
