Quick Look: Too Faced Melted Kisses Set

Too Faced Melted Kisses Set ReviewDuring the Sephora VIB Sale, I did some damage, as you may remember when I published the latest Haul of Shame post.

One of the items I got that readers showed interest in seeing was the Too Faced Melted Kisses Set, which includes four deluxe-sized liquid long-wearing lipsticks with 5 ml of product.

There are four shades: Melted Nude, Melted Peony, Melted Fuchsia, and Melted Berry.

I’ve never tried any of the Too Faced Melted liquified lipsticks, so I’m really excited to try these!

In this post, I’ve done a Quick Look at the Too Faced Melted lipsticks. You’ll find swatches, too. Later, I hope to review at least one in-depth for a separate post. (If you’d like the review to be on a specific shade, please let me know.)

Haul of Shame: Sephora VIB Sale Haul 2014

Sephora VIB Sale 2014 HaulHi! I’m Mary, and I’m a beauty junkie! Here’s my Sephora VIB Sale Haul! 😉

It’s both exciting and embarrassing to admit that I re-qualified for my second consecutive year of being a VIB Rouge member. (Maybe I need to join Sephora Junkies Anonymous. However, if there is such a group out there, I think we would just wind up talking about our favourite makeup items and then enable each other to buy more. Dangerous! We’re talkin’ Code Red or…Code ROUGE! Hehe, I can’t resist cheesy puns.)

Recently, Sephora had their much-anticipated VIB Sale, which only happens a couple of times each year, and it’s available to those who reach VIB and VIB Rouge membership. This time, the Sephora VIB Sale was for 20% off everything in-store and online.

Since I have a lot of favourites, I try to hold out until these sales, so I can stock up. But, of course there are always makeup products that wind up in my cart. (Don’t know how they sneak in there. Life’s greatest mystery. Or not.) *Shrugs shoulders and gives a sheepish grin*

While I don’t often post hauls, I thought I would do one this time because I really enjoy seeing other people’s Sephora VIB hauls. It’s a grown-up version of Show And Tell.

When I was in kindergarten, for Show And Tell, I would often just grab something random to bring to tell my classmates about.

Once, it was a piece of lint that I told the class was part of a cloud from Heaven. (After Show And Tell was over, I didn’t keep the story going. It was just a piece of lint again.)

Sometimes I would bring meaningful things to talk about, but I enjoyed making interesting stories about ‘boring’ objects or even just things that could be considered garbage. (Haha, one time, I brought in trash and explained how it was really a piece of history! Like nearly every kid, I was obsessed with time capsules.)

Well, I don’t have any lint or garbage to show you. Bummer, right?

Instead, I have my Sephora goodies that came in the mail yesterday! 🙂

When I returned home after having a lovely dinner out with a friend, I immediately picked up my camera and became a paparazzi.

This post just contains quick photos of what I got. If you’re interested in seeing a detailed review and additional photos of any of the items, let me know. (Not all the stuff is for me. I got some for my mom, so I’ll only be able to do reviews on the things I keep. I’ll indicate which ones I got for her.)

P.S. Ever since Wiz Khalifa’s album, Blacc Hollywood dropped, I’ve been listening to it almost on a daily basis. I think this is why whenever I read or write the word “haul”, his song “We Dem Boyz” plays in my head. Instead of “Hol’ up”, I think of it as “Haul-up”. Yeah, I know. Something just ain’t right with my mushball upstairs.

Too Faced Shadow Insurance Candlelight Review & Pictures

Too Faced Shadow Insurance Candlelight** This post was written by Fiona. She no longer blogs for Swatch And Learn. However, Mary still continues to blog and will be happy to reply to your comment. **

It seems like Mary and I are constantly playing a game of temptation. We always encourage each other to buy new products as they freshly hit the makeup shelves. The conversation goes something like this:

“Did you hear about this and that coming out?”
“You should get it! It’d look so great on you!”
“Stop tempting me to spend more $$!”
(Repeat lines 3 & 4 for several days.)

Case in point: When Too Faced Shadow Insurance Candlelight came out, Mary kindly informed me since she knows I love the original TF eye primer. For a while I avoided getting it because I already have two tubes of the Original. And then I gave into temptation. Sigh! I have no will power. Am I glad that I gave in? Continue reading


Too Faced Enchanted Glamourland Review & Swatches

** This post was written by Fiona. She no longer blogs for Swatch And Learn. However, Mary still continues to blog and will be happy to reply to your comment. **

Let me just get this out of the way: I’m not a pixie, I’m not a pin-up, and I do not have wings of any sort. But I absolutely love Too Faced Enchanted Glamourland. And if you’re into sparkles, shimmers and pretty colors, I think you will like this palette, too!

I’m usually not a fan of fairytale designs, but something about the Too Faced Enchanted Glamourland palette just called out to me. What’s great is that it has shades for soft looks, as well as darker and richer colors for bolder looks. This makeup set has everything you need to bring out the Pixie Pin-up in you.

Too Faced Shadow Insurance Review

Did you know your car and your eye makeup have a lot in common? You work hard to pay for your vehicle, just as you work hard to do your eye makeup. So why would you hit the road without insurance for your eye shadow?

I am a huge, huge, huge fan of the Too Faced Shadow Insurance Anti-Crease Eye Shadow Primer. I absolutely can’t stand seeing ugly crease lines ruining my makeup (who can, really)! And this product stops those lines dead in their tracks…and does so much more! Find out why I’m absolutely in love with it. Continue reading


Too Faced Retractable Kabuki Brush Review & Pictures

Too Faced Retractable Kabuki BrushWhen I first experimented with mineral makeup, my quest for the perfect kabuki brush began.

I scoured YouTube for reviews and stumbled upon a hilarious beauty guru who described the Too Faced Retractable Kabuki Brush as feeling so soft, it was “like being touched by Jesus”!

I knew I had to have it, and thanks to a very generous friend, I got this as a wonderful surprise for my birthday. Continue reading
