So as most of you probably already know, NikkieTutorials announced her collab with Too Faced and today, their collab goes on sale!
The question is, should I buy it? Take your vote at the end of this post!
NikkieTutorials is one of my favourite youtubers, I religiously watch her tutorials and they’re of consistent high quality, she seems genuinely excited about makeup and she seems down to earth. I especially love her more creative and halloween looks. To be honest, as soon as I heard of this collab I was already decided on “whatever it is, I’m getting it”. I love makeup, I haven’t tried many Too Faced Products but it seems like a nice brand and I want to support Nikkie (and Too Faced) buy buying this product.
Her collab is actually listed in the travel section of Too Faced’s website and I think this is perfect because 1. I rarely finish my makeup before I’m advised to throw it out and 2. I get to try quite a few Too Faced products with this one $56 purchase.
It contains a very good mix of eyeshadows: base, highlighting, crease, warm shades, colours and a black. It also has two blushes, their famous bronzer and a highlight. The palette also comes with a small Better Than Sex Mascara, Shadow Insurance (eyeshadow primer), an eyeliner pen and glitter.
Things I’m excited about in this collab
I love the colours she chose as her shadows, I hear excellent things about Too Faced’s shadows and from the online reviews, these shadows are of the same quality. I want to own some!
I’m interested in trying out Too Faced’s blushes and highlight they look stunning.
The bronzer that comes with this palette is very popular and I’m really thrilled that I can get a small size of this bronzer with this kit to try out.
I’ve also been meaning to try the mascara for a while but to be honest, I own so many unopened mascaras that I can’t bring myself to buy a full size high end mascara. So yeah, I’m thrilled that I get to try out a sample size of this (in purple) to see how it works.
I also really love that it’s a travel kit yet the products seem to have a decently size pan that will allow my brushes to get the product. This might actually save me quite a lot of space when I travel since my current blush, highlight and bronzer are actually 3 huge products by themselves.
Things I’m not too excited about in this collab
I’m not too keen on the eyeliner because it’s a felt tip not a brush. I usually find that felt tips drag and I usually need to pull on my eye to be able to apply them. I’ll try this out but it’s likely that I’ll end up using this as a black base, like my other black felt tip liners.
I don’t wear glitter very often and when I do, it’s usually in the form of a glitter eyeliner so that I don’t have to mess about with loose glitter. This comes in a jar with no sifter, so I’m expecting this to be messy. That said, Nikkie likes her glitter and I guess this is a glitter she likes so it will be nice to own it.
From the reviews and swatches that I’ve seen, the purple shadow seems to need some work in order for it to come off as bright as it looks in the pan. That said, this is quite common in purple eyeshadows. It will need some Mac Fix+ or a black base to get a bright look.
Yeah, so given that before I knew what this collab was I already wanted whatever it is AND the fact that I really love the combination of products offered AND that I’ve been meaning to try some of these products for a while, you’ve probably already guessed that at 6pm Malta time I’m going to be refreshing the Too Faced web page to attempt to buy this kit. I’ll be disappointed if I don’t get it but I have future chances of getting it so I’m going to try my best!
