Dude, how long since the Too Faced Leopard Love Complexion Perfect Kit has been released? Its been sitting in my stash for that long waiting for me to pick it up and review.
Awwww poor baby.
I’m surprised this review wasn’t up way before this because it really is a stunning little palette but….
Visually the Too Faced Leopard Love really is a lovely little piece of makeup! Housed in a rectangle flip top box this contains three shades or bronze, blusher, and highlighter. The powders are oh so pretty and have a leopard print in graduating shades of color so each powder is made up of three to four different shades. Truly it’s a little piece of makeup joy looking at it!
You get three powders:
- Peach Leopard (Bronze)
- Candy Leopard (Blush)
- Pink Leopard (Brighter/Highlighter)
(Pink Leopard, Candy Leopard, Peach Leopard)
Too Faced gives you a how to guide with face diagram on the back of the palette with techniques and application ideas. They seem to pick out points and places on your face for you to wear each color and I expect they want you to sport all three shades in a single look but I do think that’s a bit overkill particularly since Pink Leopard and Peach Leopard contain a lot of the same bronze-y shades.
Out of the three shades, Pink Leopard proves the most pigmented, this gives a nice shimmery bronze-y glow on cheeks. The other two shades are majorly disappointing in terms of color pay off. They have a soft, velvet-y feel but the color pay off is really bad here even when using a kabuki brush I had a difficult time building the shades up to the perfect vibrancy.
I think they would have fared better here if they marketed the palette as a highlighter of sorts as the colors simply lack the pigment to act as a blush or bronzer and ironically the brighten shade (highlighter) is the most pigmented of the three and can double up as a bronzing or all over color, go figure.
Very cute and visually pleasing for those of that put importance on packaging details, cuteness, and other makeup pleasantries, but awful in terms of pigmentation and quality.
Not a good one sadly.
Darn, I had high hopes for it.
Do share them!
