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.
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.
Too Faced Love Flush blush
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.
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.
