There’s been a lot of noise about Too Faced Cosmetics in the past 6 months. Since January alone, there has been at least 3 exciting launches, one of which has got everyone talking (The Sweet Peach collection… which I will blog about soon).
Better Together Collection by Too Faced x Kat Von D
I'd say that both of them are pretty ‘out there’ compared other high end beauty brands. It’s unusual for two make-up brands (and essentially, competitors) to team up and especially two that don’t particularly share the same style. Too Faced is colourful, kitsch, and fun, whereas Kat Von D is gothic, dark, and moody - but they have done (marketing) wonders to make this work (after all, opposites attracts!). I guess that it also helps tremendously that the founders of both brands are real life BFFs. Or so we are lead to believe. Not that I don’t believe them… but clever marketing and all that…
Whatever their friendship status is, they have paired up and have sent the message out that we are BETTER TOGETHER. As people who are there for one and another, cheering and supporting and celebrating success together. I think that’s a fantastic and positive message to put out there.
The Better Together Cheek, Lip, & Make-Up Bag and the Mascara & Liner Duo (pictured) are available at Debenhams.
The Cheek, Lip, and Make-up Bag gift set* (£33) contains 2 deluxe sized cosmetic items from each brand. Too Faced’s Candlelight Glow Highlighter and Love Flush Blush (I love them both!) and Studded Kiss Lipstick and Everlasting Liquid Lipstick by Kat Von D Beauty.
For eyes, they have released a Mascara & Liner Duo gift set* (£18 - pictured above) which includes Better Than Sex Mascara and Tattoo Liner. A lot of people have raved about Kat Von D’s Tattoo Eyeliner but I much prefer her Ink Liner for it’s stronger pigment and longer lasting staying power. Tattoo Liner seems too watery and weak for me.
