My little eye spies a new shade of eyeshadow from Too Faced!
Mess in a Dress!
Love that name! It just rolls off my tongue! Mess in a Dress happens to fall right into my Summer Must Have Makeup bag this season! I love bright, bold shades in the Summer and Mess in a Dress delivers!
I was discussing this not so long ago with my reader and friend, Taryn, she had mentioned what a gorgeous shade it was and how she had her eye on it!
Here it is in all it’s glory:
Dontcha just love loud shades for the Summer? So fun!
The Muse sporting some Mess in a Dress:
I’m thinking this can multitask as a blush…hmmmm…must try that!
Too Faced in Mess in a Dress is definately on my Summer Must Have Makeup list! Loving it!
Too Faced is celebrating 10 glamorous years of makeup with it’s Summer 2008 Collection. I’d have thought that an anniversary of 10 years would warrant a bit of a better collection than this but there are a few interesting items you might be interesting in!
Decade of Glamour Kit $40 USD
Weighting in at $40 USD the Decade of Glamour Kit gets props from me for being cute but let’s face the facts, it’s a mess waiting to happen. I seen the kit at my local Sephora and it’s adorable but everything is embedded into a cardboard style palette which opens and closes with flap covers. Another words using the powder, glosses, etc…will make for a messy situation once you close the flaps if you’re not careful! There are detachable items in the kit such as a mascara and lip injection Adorable, yes. Conventional, no.
The kit includes:
1 Bronzing Powder
1 Blush Duo
1 Lash Injection Mascara
1 Lip Injection
1 Beauty Balm
Mineral Water Eye Brightener $18 USD
This caught my eye. I’m always looking for ways to refresh my eye area and make me look awake! I have a review ready to post for this shortly!
Single Eyeshadow $16 USD
Not sure why but they are re’pimping single eyes shadows….um ok?
Blotting Sheets $12 USD
I don’t think these are new either but I’m unsure and I’m not spending $12 bucks on blotting paper anyway!
Tanning Bed in a Tube $21.50 USD
And finally in extension to their body tanner they have introduced a bronze cream tanner for the face!
I think I can safely skip it all! Aside from the Mineral Water (see my entry below for a review on this) which I was tempted by and purchased. As for the rest it looks sadly lacking!
How about you?
Not into it?

Too Faced has a new eye pencil out and available with it’s Summer Collection. The pencil is entitled Mineral Water and is basically a dupe to Benefit’s Eye Bright Pencil.
I picked this up on a whim because my concealer tends to wear off towards the end of the day and this promises to refresh and brighten my eye area up. Benefit’s Eye Bright promises the same thing however the Too Faced version says it’ll also de-puff and improve firmness and elasticity. The de-puff action totally sold me as my eyes have been suffering from puffiness for a while now sadly!
It doesn’t live up too all it claims that’s for sure.
This is actually made up of 35% mineral water and promises to feel refreshing and cooling on the eye area. I was thinking with that much water content in the product that it would be extremely moisturizing and easy to blend. Not the case. After swiping under my eyes with it I didn’t feel much of a cooling feeling and blending was the typical heartache of tugging around a bit to get it all smoothed out.
De-puffing? Naaa that claim definately is false. I experienced nothing in the ways of de-puffing my eyes.
Now the color of this is a nude/beige which is supposed to be flattering on most skin tones but if you want to be realistic this is definately not going to work if you’re tanned, medium, or dark. It’s mostly geared towards a fairer skin type or medium fair.
When all is said and done I’d say that this is probably a nice item to have around for a quick touch up and go. It’s tiny and fits nice and compact in your purse. It’s not a messy liquid and a few swipes from the pencil does indeed cover up tired eyes.
Is it worth the $18 USD price tag? I’m not sure. I like the fact that it’s easy for touching up but it definately doesn’t live up to the hype of de-puffing, improving firmness, making me appear like I had 8 hours of sleep, etc….
This one isn’t Muse Approved for purchase but it is interesting to say the very least and maybe something you want to try out for yourself!

Too Faced is taking us too a galaxy far, far away with it’s Spring Collection entitled Galactic Glam!
Much of the collection consists of quick fixes such as a new primer, liner and cleanser but some interesting eyeshadows and such have popped up too!
Borderline $18.50 USD
This pencil is a colorless stick that keeps your lipgloss from traveling all over your face and down your chin to your cheek…etc….you know what I mean right? It’s been done before but Too Faced decided to jump on the bandwagon and do their very own version! I’m slightly curious. I’ve tried pencils like this before and haven’t had much success to be honest.
Shadow Insurance $17 USD
Nothing can tear me away from my Urban Decay Potion Primer not even Too Faced’s new shadow insurance. This primer promises that your eyeshadow will stick all day however I already have my trusty UDPP so I’m not really needing to try anything new plus my primer is $2 bucks cheaper! Ya Boyeeeeeee!
Lip of Luxury $18 USD
Now here’s an interesting little lipstick. It’s champagne infused. I wonder what the hell that means? Do you think they inject it with tiny doses of champagne? I’m in if they do! Nothing like a bit of bubbly on the side of my lipstick! I love the cute pink packaging with sparkly diamond topper!
The Hopeless Romantic Quickie Palette $29.50 USD
Meh…another quickie chronicle? I don’t really like these too much to be honest as I find them messy! They are ok I guess if I can find them on sale but really to pay full price I’m not interested. The set includes two layers instead of the standard one layer so it’s somewhat unique in that!
Lash Injection Antidote $23.50 USD
This is basically formulated to remove Lash Injection but they forget to mention how much Lash Injection sucks! I don’t need a $23.50 mascara remover when the said mascara comes off without any help at all! Lash Injections sheds fibers like a cashmere sweater! You don’t need a remover when it comes off so easily by itself!
Mood Swing $18.50 USD
Another lipgloss that promises to be your custom shade of color. Probably doesn’t work. Just my humblest!
Galaxy Glam Eyeshadow $19.50 USD
Ahhh the star of the show! Now these are something to get hyper about! These shadows are infused with beautiful swirls of shimmering blues, golds, greens, and pink! They look rather awesome to my eye but I’m a tad bit worried that they won’t give the desired look I’m hoping for and just turn black when on! We shall see!
Want any of this?

Move over Urban Decay Primer Potion competion is in the works!
I see at least two new primers available at Sephora this week!
bareVitamins Prime Time Eyelid Primer
Don’t let the name full you Bare Escentuals puts this little primer out (maybe the name is a hint at what’s to come for a new line?)! At $16 it wont make me give up my beloved UDPP but it does sound interesting!
Meet Too Faced Shadow Insurance:
The promise of all day shadow wear is tempting but at $17 again I’m not tempted enough to cheat on my UDPP which only costs $15 and has been tested and found true!
All these sound delightfully interesting but in the long run I don’t find myself interested in purchasing either!
