Oh I fancy myself some gold shimmer. Gold is such a good color for me and so flattering. Too Faced Absolutely Invisible Candlelight is part of the Too Faced Fall Collection 2009 and one of my favorite items released. A pretty little compact filled with powder candlelight is just what ever girl needs in their life.
Jump ahead for the review!
Housed in a cream and gold compact this finely milled, sheer golden powder has a hint of shimmer to deliver a lit from within finish to skin. The powder is ideal for sweeping on cheekbones and face for a subtle little kiss of gold. It works a treat on bare moisturized skin to illuminate skin with a natural finish. The powder easily multitasks as a great way to brighten up eyes or the brow bones too. It’s also packed with a dose of skin-saving antioxidants to help protect and sooth tired skin as it warms and illuminates your complexion.
I’m all about gold so this has much of my attention. It’s a rather universally flattering shade that works well right now in the Summer, will remain looking fabulous as the Fall and cooler weather approaches, and will be ideal for the holidays when I want a brush of gold across my face.
Truly a great little palette for illuminating and brightening up my complexion for a soft, romantic glow.
Muse Approved for purchase!
A touch of candlelight on my cheeks!
Too Faced Absolutely Invisible Candlelight is available now from Sephora for $25.
The Too Faced Fall Collection 2009 zoomed onto shelves very early at Sephora so early in fact it’s not even updated on their site as of yet. It’s quite a selection of goodies one item in particular is really outstanding (that review is coming in a few). For now let me tell you that Too Faced joins in on all the primer games this season with a brand new primer of it’s own. Too Faced Primed and Poreless Skin Smoothing Face Primer is the first facial primer that the company has had in it’s collection to my knowledge. Interestingly enough it’s also the most unique primer I’ve come across as it comes in a beige shade that seems to even out my skin tone a tad bit.

We all probably share at least one thing in common, a desire for flawless skin. Proper prepping and priming is key to creating a good working canvas for making and achieving a flawless, perfect look.
Too Faced Primed and Poreless Skin Smoothing Face Primer aids you on your quest for perfect skin nirvana with an interesting primer formulated to wear under bronzers, foundations, and powders to keep skin radiant and fresh. The primer pretty much mimics the formula of many popular primers today with a silicon-like base that dries down to a powdery finish. Unlike many primers like this it doesn’t make me itchy, doesn’t make me feel like I have a mask on, and doesn’t pill. I’m still not the biggest fan in the world of silicon or silicon feeling primers but I’m trying to find the joy in them.
Even though it feels like a typical primer it’s actually a bit different in one case. This one case is in fact what I think makes it special. The primer is a translucent beige shade that somewhat evens out my skin tone. It’s considered colorless and invisible for the most part but I felt like it not only smoothed my skin but also evened out my complexion slightly.
The primer glides onto my face without looking or feeling heavy and mask-like. I can’t speak for filling pores as my pores are non existent but I think it’ll make a perfect filler. It allows my foundation particularly powder to apply easily with little fuss. I didn’t notice any extended wear for my foundation but it does keep my foundation fresh without it oxidizing quickly.
All in all a very good primer and worthy of a check out. Too Faced Primed and Porless is $30 and is available now from Sephora.

Too Faced Natural Eye Neutral Eye Shadow Collection is totally making me wish for Fall in a hurry! Please come soon cold weather. I hate nudes and naturals but this palette looks ideal for brightening up my eye with an elegant twist of nude! Sadly, it was in my cart and before I could hit submit, bam out of stock! Sniff..
Soap and Glory The Wizard of Flaws
proves too expensive for me. $15.99 is a tiny bit much to indulge when I can get a brand name for a few dollars more but that doesn’t stop me from wanting to try this out. Could it be a holy grail concealer!?
I normally avoid Boots No7 like the plague aside from LE items however the Boots No7 Mineral Blush in Soft Pink
and brush does appeal!
Sonia Kashuk How To Palettes
look too yummy! Available in Smoky, Spring, and Natural these palettes are $19.99 each and contain shades and a tutorial for creating a perfect eye look!
It’s been discussed a plenty but I’m yearning for both the new Urban Decay Facial Primers
. Urban Decay Complexion Primer Potion Brightening is definitely on top of my list with Urban Decay Complexion Primer Potion Pore Perfecting coming in a close second!
These are just a few of my most wanted beauty items of the moment!
What are some of yours?
One of my all time favorite purchases recently is the Too Faced FlatBuki Brush. I held off purchasing this for a while since I have so many facial brushes (kabuki and otherwise) it seemed a terrible waste to get another. After seeing the brush in person, purchasing it, and finally using it, I find myself asking, “How did you ever get along without this little brush?”
Jump ahead for a brief review on the Too Faced Flatbuki Brush!
With a mere $12.50 price tag this is probably one of thee cheapest (and perhaps tiniest) brush in my collection. I think it’s well worth a check out and purchase for the price as it multitasks at applying bronzes, blushers, powders, and shimmers perfectly onto your face with little to no work on your part. A quick tap and swirl blends color seamlessly on my cheeks.
The Too Faced Flatbuki is actually a smaller version of the regular Too Faced Retractable Kabuki. Mind you this isn’t retractable nor does it have the standard kabuki look or feel. The brush is a flat head and not as dense or round as many other kabuki styles. It’s flat, very soft, and lacks the density of a regular kabuki style brush. The flat head allows it to fit nicely onto the contour of cheeks and allows for a nice sweeping motion for blush application. I personally wouldn’t attempt mineral foundation with this style brush but for using with blushes, bronzers, or other powder it’s a winner.
The brush is particularly great for brighter blushes or bronzers as the bristles pick up just the right amount of color without overdoing it. You can gradually build color up without going overboard. The brush feels incredible on my face as the bristles are incredible soft. It sports a cute pink metallic handle with a floral motif which is particularly flattering if you’re a lover of girly pink bits and bobs.
I simply adore the brush and recommend snagging one especially with it’s inexpensive price tag. The only thing that can be annoying is it’s not particularly travel friendly and can get easily get crushed in your makeup bag. But hey that goes for any style kabuki brush or brushes in general.
Great value for a sweet little multitasking brush that makes makeup application a snap.
