Has Mr. Right been here all along ladies? I’m a little behind with a few reviews, but if you’ll bear with me I just have to share this with you because these photos and swatches look too darned cute not to share, and although at least one of these products is now sold out *sad face* I still want to share my opinion with you because I think it will help you out with full size products from this brand.
As part of the spring release, Too Faced launched a cute little blush palette, called the Too Faced Love Flush Blush Wardrobe filled with six of their Love Flush Blushes in mini sizes. This palette was limited edition and looks to be sold out online. Also adding to their permanent brush collection they released a handsome little devil of a brush (that even comes with a removeable bow-tie!) called Mr. Right. How perfect, right?!
Above: The blush palette is long and lean, different for Too Faced packaging. The handle is brushed gold with a glossy pale blue, and of course let’s not forget to point out the bow tie. Very dignified indeed, Mr. Right.
The inside of the blush palette has a slender mirror when you flip it open and you will see inside the six miniature versions of all of the current full size Love Flush Blush shades offered by Too Faced from their permanent line. The sizes of each of the blushes in the palette are roughly 1 1/4″ x 1″ (shaped like a heart) and weigh 2 grams each.
As I mentioned above, the packaging is a little different from other Too Faced packaging as it is long and slender (9.75″ x 2.25″) so I feel like it is a little harder to work with. I usually find mirrors a nice touch in a palette but because of the slender shape of this one it is a bit awkward to actually use since it inevitably cuts off most of your face if you try to use it to apply. What I love about this palette is that you can experience every shade from Too Faced with one swipe of a brush, but that is also part of the issue when actually using the palette. Because the blushes are quite small, if you have any sort of fluffy brush as I do that you like to apply your blush with you will find your brush inevitably dipping itself into an adjoining shade unless you precisely dip it into the palette. This isn’t necessarily a deal-breaker however, because it is something you can just get used to in working with the palette. In working with each blush shade I found they were highly pigmented yet blended well and lasted for about 10 hours on my oily skin. I also quickly noticed that after testing all of the shades, I started to only use three of the six shades consistently, most likely due to my shade preferences (warm and peachy) since they flatter my skintone more.
My 3 go-to shades: Love Hangover, Baby Love, I Will Always Love you
Love Hangover is one of those staple “peachy-pinks” that goes with any makeup look. The finish is soft and silky with the slightest hint of golden sheen, similar to NARS Orgasm, but definitely not as much sheen. Baby Love is a warm nude and although it doesn’t swatch as pigmented, once on the cheeks it can be built up nicely. This one could also be used in place of a bronzer for my skintone. I Will Always Love You is a true peach with slight golden sheen. This one swatches more pigmented than it applies to the cheeks, but once it is built up it is a gorgeous peach for sure!
The 3 shades I reach for less often: How Deep Is Your Love?, Justify My Love, Your Love Is King
The next three shades are more berry tones. How Deep Is Your Love? is a warm pink that has an excellent amount of pigmentation to it so I think it would work beautifully for medium skintones. Justify My Love is a cool lavender pink without much sheen once applied to the cheek. I like this one better than Urban Decay Obsessed because it seems to sink into the skin more and doesn’t look chalky. Your Love Is King is a very rich purple/wine shade that would be stunning on medium to dark skintones. I find it is quite overpowering unless I use a light hand, so I do not tend to reach for this one.
Let’s take a look at some swatches:
Swatched L to R: Love Hangover, Baby Love, I Will Always Love You, How Deep Is Your Love?, Justify My Love, Your Love Is King
Overall I think this palette is cute, and I love that in one palette we can try all of the shades offered from the Too Faced Love Flush Blush line, but as I’ve worked with it over the past couple of months and I’ve only been reaching for a couple of shades I think I would rather just purchase a full size of one of these blushes to be able to benefit with more room to swish my big blush brush around and get the adorable heart shaped packaging and delicate embossing that the full size blushes offer.
Now let’s take a peek at the new permanent addition to the Too Faced brush lineup:
Oh “Hi Mr. Right”!
Mr. Right is a large-ish tapered brush that is meant for applying any sort of powders you want – blush, bronzer, face powder. It was larger than I expected, and as you can see in the photo below it is larger than the miniature blushes in the Too Faced Love Flush Blush Wardrobe. As with all Too Faced brushes, it is cruelty free so it is made of synthetic fibers. The brush washes easily, is soft (not silky soft, but not rough either) and so far hasn’t shed a bit on me. Because of the size of the brush I find it a little difficult to use for blush application, not very precise for bronzer application and not the shape I look for in a powder brush. This doesn’t quite surprise me, however, because I haven’t personally found an “all in one” brush that I love since I tend to prefer specific brushes for specific purposes.
Still, the packaging is beautiful – the soft brushed gold is elegant, the pale blush handle is to die for, and that removeable bow-tie is debonair indeed (although most of the time it is sitting on my counter so I don’t get product on it if I’m being honest).
