Check ’em below and feel free to add your most wanted bits in the comment box below!
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.

Well hello pretty new things from Too Faced. After checking up on Sephora I noticed a few items new from Too Faced. I’m unsure of these are some sort of late Summer release or a Fall Collection but whatever the case they look rather nice! I’m going to go ahead and say Fall?

The most exciting item in the collection is the Too Faced Natural Eye Neutral Shadow Collection ($34). You may recall this design from my Too Faced Smokey Eye Palette review from last Fall. This is one reason that I thought perhaps this might be a Fall Collection. This palette has a lighter shade selection of natural, neutral shadows but all manage to look very pretty! I placed an order for this immediately as I adored the prior release and look forward to trying this.
Two other items that captured my eye were Too Faced Absolutely Invisible Candlelight Powder ($25) and Too Faced Primed and Poreless Skin Smoothing Face Primer ($30). The primer is a first for Too Faced as they haven’t yet explored the primer world this too ended up in my cart as count me curious how well they do in the primer department. I do wonder if perhaps Urban Decay might follow up with a primer this season too! The powder also ended up in my cart as I thought it looked interesting and has a subtle shimmer.
Finally the product that captured my attention the least is a new Too Faced Metal Eyed Liquid Shimmer Eyeliner ($17.50). This is a liquid liner with a faint shimmer finish not to be mistake with the glitter liners that Too Faced puts out already. I’m not much for liquid liner so I can skip.
I’ll be reviewing the primer, powder, and shadow box for you as soon as I get my order! I’m eager for a try!
Anyone else see this yet?

As part of it’s Summer 2009 Collection Too Faced introduced three new stand alone blushes entitled Pinch My Petals Blush.

I love that Too Faced has extended their rather cute, retro glam girl packaging to their single product cosmetics. They normally reserve this style packaging for their popular Quickie Palettes so I’m quite delighted that they created three single blushes in this design. I’m actually hopeful that this could set the wheels in motion for them to extend themselves further on such packaging. Each blush features a different pin up girl, too cute! These are a flip style durable cardboard compact with mirror. Too Faced Pinch My Petals Blush ($19.50 USD) is available in three shades so far which are Pinch My Petals (sheer pink), Mocha Mi Amore (muddy brown), and Papa Don’t Peach (peach/coral).
If I’m honest I really didn’t like Mocha Mi Amore or Pinch My Petals. Mocha Mi Amore was terribly dark on me and quite muddy, not a flattering shade at all. And Pinch My Petals was too sheer to really enjoy and a tad on the chalky side as well. The real star of the collection is Papa Don’t Peach which could pass for a subdued Orgasm-like shade. The pigmentation was lacking a tad bit on both Mocha Mi Amore and Pinch My Petals plus the matte finishes just weren’t working in the least for this Muse however Papa Don’t Peach definitely had a nice slightly shimmery finish with plenty of pigmentation, quite a lovely Summer shade.
Overall, I love the packaging, liking the price (not too bad a deal at $19.50) but was a tad disappointed only one of the three shades worked for me. As I mentioned I look forward Too Faced possibly introducing other items with this style packaging, that much is a big win for me.
