Boots had a great offer on buy any two products from Urban Decay or Too Faced and get £5 off.
So I invested in the Galaxy Collection (anything else from Too Faced can probably be found on Ebay for a fraction of the price):
I did some swatches to compare the Too Faced collection to the possible Nars equivalents. With NARS, the colours are black generally but have another colour pushing through. With Too Faced because the colours are swirled, you can definately get different effects from it. So the Too Faced is swatched by choosing the lightest colour, the darkest, then the two of them mixed together. The Nars is swatched next to it:
Blues – I can’t for the life of me find my Night Flight eyeshadow, so I used China Blue to compare it with, which isn’t entirely fair, since Night Flight is black with blue shimmers, and China Blue is a matte royal blue:
After swatching the colour like this, I think that the Too Faced shadows are worth keeping. You can really get different tones from them, whereas with the NARS, as beautiful as they are, the colours are flatter. The green Too Faced eyeshadow is especially good for getting three very different colours.
Definately use these colours with a primer – it really makes it stick and stand out. The Too Faced eyeshadows are baked, so very fragile – the SA dropped my Deep Space Eyshadow and I didnt notice at the time, but when I got home the top of it just fell apart.
There isn’t much else I love from Too Faced, but this range of Eyeshadows are just gorgeous!
