Too Faced's Got Something For The Wild Side In Us
Too Faced is one of those makeup brands that definitely appeals to the kid in me. They have outrageously adorable packaging and fun product concepts. The Leopard Love Palette highlights Too Faced's brand concept well with the sleek pink, travel friendly packaging and leopard emblazoned powders. I scored this for about $12 at Nordstrom Rack but you can also purchase this in a set from Sephora for around $26 with some other goodies included.
Too Faced can be childish which is not a look I normally go for but for those of you who love cute, this is perfect. If you're looking for a beauty gift for a younger friend, family member, or whoever, Too Faced might have what you need!
The Leopard Love palette comes with three powders: a bronzer, a blush, and a highlighter. The back of the palette comes with instructions to easily guide beginners on where they might want to apply each product. I'm not sure if I would apply my blush to my temples though.
The bronzer is the least shimmery powder and has more of a satin sheen type of finish. I tend to like matte or satin bronzers so this was a nice surprise. The blush is very frosty and light. I am not sure if this would show up on medium to dark skintones as well as it does on lighter skin. The highlight, pink leopard, is a cult favorite and now I see why. This highlight, or brightener as Too Faced calls it, is buttery and highly reflective. In the swatch you can see how it almost looks like a cream product. I can see this being a lovely highlight for more tan skintones so I'm excited to use this in the summer.
All in all, if you like cute makeup and you don't mind shimmer and shine, this is a nice palette to have on hand if you tend to travel with makeup.
