Too Faced A Few of My Favorite Things Palette

CYMERA_20131126_184521

Too Faced A Few of My Favorite Things Palette is one of my favorite holiday palettes I have tried this season. It  includes twenty eye shadows, two blushes, two bronzers,  a full-sized Lip Injection Color Bomb, and a travel-sized Better Than Sex Mascara.

The 20 eye shadows are made up of 5 matte finish, and 15 metallic/shimmer shadows. I love the shadows in this palette they are super smooth and very pigmented. The shadows went on so easy and most wear for at least 8hrs.

The blushes and bronzers in this set are great. Really smooth and super pigmented I was impressed how long wearing they are.  The standouts to me are Melt into Spring a gorgeous soft pink and Sun Bunny #1 my new favorite bronzer.

On top of all the great shadows you also get two of their top sellers Lip Injection Color Bomb in Bee Sting a perfect pale pink and one of my faves Better Than Sex Mascara. All this and a matching travel bag, it would make the perfect Christmas gift!

Total Beauty Collection for HSN

hsn total beauty box

I love the Total Beauty Collections, the boxes are reasonably priced and always come full of the best products. The new Collection for HSN contains 9 deluxe samples! I really like that  unlike most samples box programs, there’s no subscription required for the Total Beauty Collections. I can just buy them when I want with no opting out of recurring charges.

Check out what came  inside my Total Beauty Collection for HSN box:

Definitely a great collection in this Total Beauty box. A few products I am already obsessed with and a few new items that I can’t believe I was living without. Check out below to see what my favorites were.

One tube of Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara (.17 OZ) – 100% saw more dramatic volume, 100% saw longer lashes, 90% saw a dramatic look with one coat. I am all about makeup that is quick and easy, and if it looks like I spent time creating my look? Even better!  Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara is truly a standout a great volumizing mascara it leaves my lashes looking long and fuller and the formula even curls them! Talk about multitasking. And this mascara stays put all day no clumping, flaking or fading

Wei East China Herbal Intensive Eye Treatment Pads (2 pads) – With 72 potent Chinese herbs. For puffiness and dark circles. I have been seriously lacking in the sleep department lately and my eyes are showing it. Yesterday my eyes were killing me so I put these little pads on  and laid down. I ended up taking a wee 30 minute nap and when I got up I felt great and my eyes looked much better. The pads are cool and moist and felt great on my skin and I could see an instant improvement in the puffiness under my eyes.

EiyseeYouthspan Enviro-shield Tinted Veil ( .25 OZ)- Lightly tinted.  This tinted moisturizer  has anti-aging properties and when applied a very faint color and shimmer. Its barely noticeable but it did make my skin appear brighter. As its a sample I can’t attest for the long term anti-aging benefits but it did feel nice and light on. A nice product but nothing I will add to my must have list.

Serious Skincare Glycolic Gommage Exfoliating Facial (.50 OZ) – A deep cleansing, micro-polisher that smoothes, lifts and tightens the skin’s overall appearance. With sensitive skin the word peel always scared me a bit but The Serious Skincare Glycolic Gommage Exfoliating Facial did a great job without irritating my skin. It has a great tea tree scent which I love but if your not a tea tree scent person it might be overwhelming. It left my skin soft and smooth without irritation, definitely a great choice before a heavier night cream.

One tube of Trish McEvoy Eye Base Essentials  – Upper eye brightener and shadow primer. I am all about eye primers with darker skin around my eyes its a necessity to get my eye shadow colors to stay true. I really like the Trish McEvoy Eye Base it really brightened my eyes and after testing with a few shadows it helped all of them stay put all day long.

Perlier Shea Butter Hand Cream (1 fl. OZ) -  With sweet almond milk. I love the Sweet almond milk scent and this lotion did a great job moisturizing my hands. It’s definitely on the heavier cream side so this is perfect for keeping hands smooth or healing chapped, dry skin in winter.

Carol’s Daughter Monoi Oil ( .1 fl. OZ) – Sacred strengthening serum for stronger hair. Ahh I love Carol’s Daughter the scents of these products are amazing. This is a great strengthening oil for dry and damaged hair its very rich and you only need a very small amount to really cover your hair.

M. Asam VINOLIFT (.33 fl. OZ) – Skin Tightening Cream. I haven’t tried a lot of skin tightening creams so I wasn’t sure quite what to expect. The Vinolift went on easily and absorbed well but I noticed you have to use a very small amount or it can leave your face feeling dry.

One sample tube of benefit POREfessional  – To minimize the appearance of pores. I have been a fan of POREfessional for quite awhile. This ultra lightweight cream goes to work instantly to hide my pores and smooth out my complexion. I love how light it feels on my skin and it works wonders to hide my pores.
The Total Beauty Collection for HSN will be available soon. This is a can’t miss collection just the Better Than Sex Mascara and POREfessional alone make this box a steal.  You can also check out other Total Beauty Collection boxes available now at www. TotalBeauty.com
