Too Faced Love Flush Blush In Shade ‘Baby Love’

18th February 2017
Too Faced Love Flush blush

One of the products my friend bought back from NYC for me was the Too Faced Love Flush blush in shade Baby Love.

I would be lying if I said I didn’t buy this largely for the fact it reminds me of my old Polly Pocket cases. Too Faced packaging is completely adorable. Although it does contribute to the perception that they are aimed at Tweens and potentially not worth the price tag.

A Brand For Teens?

Too Faced were a brand I liked as a teenager. My first bronzer was from Too Faced and the pressed-powder was formed into a pink and gold leopard print. What’s not to like?

Also I loved their lip plumping glosses made with chilli. Long before lip injections were mainstream.

Professional Standards

Not much has changed. I have lots of Too Faced products -many of which I’ve been drawn to for the packaging- and even though I love them, they wouldn’t be my first recommendation for the ‘best’ in any category.

In a world of beauty blogging it seems every product has to be held up to a professional standard (whatever that is, I’m certainly not an MUA! I just smear stuff on my face and occasionally write about it). Or be everyone’s latest cult product. I’m realising it’s ok for products to be fun or enjoyable whilst not being suitable for a 12 hour day on a film set.

This is especially relevant for me, given the most adventurous task my makeup will be up against is brunch.

Cute & Creative

Too Faced are a brand I really enjoy. Yes, I’ve not been totally enamoured with all of the products I’ve tried. And I do think they’re overhyped by influencers. However as a brand they inspire creativity and I’m all about that. I love the way they name their products and theme their collections.

Inspired by Bon Bon, I wanted to experiment with pinks and colours outside my comfort zone. That’s where the brand fell down for me, as the quality didn’t match up to the concept.

I’m thankful to say that the Too Faced Love Flush blush not only looks adorable, but didn’t disappoint.

I opted for a warm toned terracotta colour, shade Baby Love. This pressed powder blush is extremely pigmented. The pigmentation is my only real problem with this blush. Only the tiniest amount of product can be applied, or the result is very reminiscent of Pikachu.

The colour itself is lovely. I like to wear this between my highlight and contour to soften my cheeks. It wears well and lasts throughout the day, making this a Too Faced product I gladly use on a regular basis.

Too Faced Love Flush Blush

Love Flush blush is a great example of a fun Too Faced product which looks great on your vanity but actually works. At £25.00 it is overpriced in my opinion, but as with a lot of Too Faced products you’re effectively paying for the packaging. Thanks to a momentary blip in the £ VS $ misery I got it slightly cheaper from the States.

It can currently be purchased from Debenhams in the UK.

    Great review! I have the Love Flush Palette and I really do love every single shade but they’re all quite Pikachu inspired haha! The design is adorable xxx

      Ah I had no idea they did a palette, that’s a great idea as I can’t justify getting them all individually. You’re such an enabler Gemma haha! <3

      Haha! I’d love to get a few more but don’t think I can justify it. I need to be bolder with blush I have about 3 I wear haha. Thank you! xx

    I have always resisted as I feel I would just love the packaging and not the actual product. Great review love xx

      I know what you mean! Thankfully this one paid off but I’m so wary of Too Faced for that reason x

    I do love these blushers, but yes they are pricey! This is actually my favourite shade of the bunch, very easy-to-wear for pretty much all skintones x

      23rd February 2017 at 12:43 pm

      I love this shade for that reason, I’m drawn to the bold pinks but don’t think they would suit me x

    I’d rather spend for the Tarte Amazonian Clay blushes at this point, but I can’t deny that Too Faced packaging makes me want to buy them all!

    I really need one of these blushes, even just for the packaging. Super cute.

    I think these are so cute – I have one and also bought it purely based on looks! It’s a nice blush but I agree it’s overpriced so I only have the one!

      Same here, I do love the other colours but don’t think I could justify it x

    It’s a very pretty shade. The only two Too Faced products I’ve purchased where their Sweet Peach palette and Shadow insurance, but I was impressed with both. I have read that a lot of their products have inconsistencies in the quality which is odd but they are certainly the masters of pretty packaging.

    • Amy
      23rd February 2017 at 12:42 pm

      I love Shadow Insurance and the glitter ball primer (I forget the name!). It is annoying, I am really tempted by the Sweet Peach palette as I love the colours but after a disappointing one last time am wary. I wish they were more consistent!

    This looks right up my street, you have captured it so beautifully as always – your photos are always so dreamy! I have a mini Too Faced love blush in shade Your Love is King and it is very pigmented, but trickier to blend, so I end up with stripes on my cheeks haha xD that said, the shades are so pretty and flattering and I’m a sucker for the packaging! xx

      Thank you Elizabeth. I’ve had stripes from this a few times if I go in forgetting it’s so pigmented haha. X

    It is really gorgeous, the terracota shade is something I really like and wear, too bad it is expensive. But the packaging is a dream and looks amazing in photos! x

    Fantastic review, interesting how a high pigmentation is a downfall

      Thanks Mel! I find the same thing with highlighters, if they are too pigmented you have to faff and I hate that. x

    I’ve always had an eye on their blushers but couldn’t justify buying one… What does it look against your skintone? Would love to see some swatches or selfies with it! 😀

      It’s very bright when not used gently but looks great on skin. Apologies, will swatch next time 🙂

    I am a huge Too Faced fan but I agree that you are paying a little more£ for the super cute packaging. I picked up a few of the Sweet Heart blushes a few years back and I thoroughly enjoy them still to this day.
