So, everyone knows Funfetti is the best kind of cake, right? Right. So when Too Faced announced they were releasing a Funfetti Collection, I knew that I had to grab it. So much for that “No Buy” I was talking about.
The packaging is super cute. The set came in a foam padded box with the adorable Funfetti heart print. It comes with an eyeshadow palette, Love Flush Blush, Better Than Sex Mascara, Mocha Freeze Lip Gloss and a mini brush. I got the set early at a reduced price for $55 but it is still available for $68 on the HSN website (the set is exclusive to HSN). The set has a value of $122 which I think is pretty great. My only nit picky thing packaging wise is that I wish the cover of the palette matched the outside of the box. I think it looks a bit cleaner and more sleek and simple. I suppose the mirror inside could be a bit bigger but that’s really trying to nit pick.
I already know I LOVE the Better Than Sex Mascara and the brush is nice and soft. I think it’ll be great for powder touch ups. It’s a bit too dense for me to use with blush. The blush is gorgeous. I love the embossing (which matches the rest of the blush collection) and the mosaic swirl of colors not only looks super cool, but also creates a beautiful warm pink with a bit of a sheen. It’s a very pretty color. The gloss is also a great pink/brown nude and doesn’t feel too sticky, which I appreciate in a gloss.
When sneek peeks came out there seemed to be some mixed reactions. Some thought it was a very pretty collection of neutrals while others thought that “Funfetti” suggested some brighter colors. Since I lean towards the neutral side in terms of preference, I love this. It’s a beautiful collection of (mostly) cool toned shadows that I think is really well rounded in shade selection. Great lid shades, highlight shades, deep tones for definition, crease shades; this palette has it all. I understand the disappointment but it seems like the team at Too Faced wanted this collection to be pretty and girly and have “Funfetti” be a representation of that. If I’m right, and that’s what they were going for, they hit it out of the park. I really like this collection so far and can’t wait to start playing around with it more.
Also, is it just me or does anyone else have a craving for Funfetti Cupcakes?
