I quite like Too Faced although as brand, I feel like they’ve disappeared off my radar for quite a while. I just don’t seem to see the products on my favourite blogs very often, or in magazines so I don’t really know what their new launches are.
I spotted a super pretty eyeshadow of theirs on ASOS called Cop-a-Teal, but it wasn’t on sale. Some eBaying led me to a seller who had the whole range of Exotic Color Intense Eyeshadows at 50% less or more than the retail price of £15! So I ended up buying all of them. Because they are so many I will do a swatch a day, ok?!
Each solo eyeshadow comes in a pink box like this:
So Too Faced say: Our intense shades were created as the must-have accessory to compliment our best-selling eye shadow collections. This alluring spectrum of extravagant shadow textures includes an ensemble of rock-crystal shimmers, velvety hues and irreverent iridescence. High Density Intensity: Our color-saturated formula guarantees maximum color pay off.
I have to say solo eyeshadows are a pain. Means I have to rummage around in the morning looking for the right shade the spend time opening each one which when you are as bad as waking up as me, takes up time!
The packaging is black plastic and comes in a flower shape which is unimaginative, but cute enough. There’s a small window so you can see the shade inside.
You get 1.7 grams of product, which is fine, and it has that satisfying click when you shut it!!!
Because this is the first review, I’ll include more detail about the product and packaging.
Enchanted Garden is described as a ‘Golden Expresso’. It’s a really beautiful rich, deep, cool toned golden brown. It’s very intense and rich, just the kind of brown I like:
This is from one light swatch – gorgeous. So rich, intense and pigmented. I would use this to shade lightly in the day and more intensely in the evening as a smoky colour. Really beautiful. The only thing is, I don’t see it fitting in with that many of the other shades in the range (you’ll see later). I guess if you have nudes and browns in your collection already, this will go nicely.
Enchanted Garden is a real beauty if you love blackened brown with gold flecked eyeshadows like me (specific I know).
You can buy the Intense Eyeshadows from FeelUnique.com, Beautybay.com, ASOS.com – or you can have a look on eBay for a bargain!
