Hi there, 

I’ve wanted to try Too Faced products for a long time, but I never got round to buying one of their eyeshadow palettes and I couldn’t get hold of the Book of Bronzers as it wasn’t sold anywhere in the UK. So when I saw this Christmas duo being sold in Debenhams I thought it was the perfect opportunity to not only try the brand, but expand my lipstick and blusher collection at the same time. And at £12, this set is great value so I was thrilled to get it with an additional 10% off taking it down to £10.80.

I genuinely expected to hate the packaging of this blusher as it looked very cheap and plastic online, but I have to admit that I find it is super cute and adorable. I think the lipstick and the blusher are the perfect size when trying out a new brand for the first time and I wish brands would offer smaller sizes on all their products throughout the year.

On camera the lipstick looks more of a nude brown than it is in person.

On the cheeks it seems to have a lovely glow like quality about it. However, I’m not sure if this is down to the blusher alone or me wearing Burberry’s Earthy blush underneath, but either way they make a wonderful combination. I have been enjoying this blusher and would love to add a few more of the Too Faced mini blushes to my collection so I’m sad that the other two mini duos are not available to buy in the UK.

When it comes to the melted lipsticks I can see me having a bit of a love/hate relationship with these. On the one hand I love the colour, the pigmentation and the applicator, but frustratingly I find this formula a bit drying so it’s not that comfortable on the lips. However, my lips are really dry and flaky at the moment so it might be that I can wear these comfortably in autumn, spring and summer, but not in winter when my lips need something more moisturising.

The colour selection of these melted lipsticks look amazing and the bold colours really appeal to me so I may just have to pick up the French Kisses Melted Lip set as well so that I can save them for spring. I just hope they come back in stock soon!
