Unboxing: My Too Faced Sex & Chocolate (Boxing Day)

No, I didn’t make a mistake in the title, even though December is gone, but I got this¬†on¬†Boxing Day, a day after¬†Christmas, so have an excuse why I’m showing you last month’s box only now. Yes, I still have lots of unboxing even in January.

I’d had my eye on this bronzer for some time, and finally I got this during the Boxing Day sale at Sephora.

In this box, you get a Chocolate Soleil Bronzer and Better Than Sex Mascara by Too Faced.  It was for CAD$15.00 on limited quantities. The packaging of the sample bronzer is in a soft black plastic material, not very attractive but when I open the lid, I feel like I was in a chocolate factory. The bronzer smells amazing and delicious,  I just want to eat it up!

And I believe the actual product comes with a sturdy packaging with a full sized mirror.

I have this in medium to dark, even though my skin tone is light/medium. I¬†would say it¬†suits¬†my skin¬†nicely, it warms it up, lasts all day and it’s very flattering. It also smells amazinggg!

It is matte! To me, shimmer gets old, so I want something natural-looking. Something that won’t make me look like a disco ball. Since this is a matte bronzer, it is perfect.

It’s not orange at all so you can use it to contour or just as an all over bronzer.¬†Blends nicely and highly pigmented so you will not need a lot on your brush.One of the best out there. Totally matte, creamy, and gorgeous¬†and so it photographs well. Product is dense, so you don’t go through it too quickly. Way to go Too Faced!

If you’re a sucker for bronzer, this is totally worth the splurge!¬†So what are you waiting for? Go ahead and spoil yourself silly!

I know this is definitely not the latest product from Too Faced.¬† I’ve heard many good things about this mascara for a long time and was pleasantly surprised by it.

Better than sex, eh! Hmm… I’m trying to figure out the connection¬†between the two¬†and¬†I probably need to meditate on this¬†for¬†an answer. lol!

I spent a week wearing it and I really like the formula. It does need more work for me to work on my short lashes to look great, but I must say the end results were undeniably satisfying.

To get the important question out of the way Рdoes it even work? Yes, it does. But I think it would have a much more impressive result on long lashes.

I want to put it out there, this is¬†not a waterproof mascara, so it doesn’t hold curl on my lashes that much.¬†On my lashes I don’t feel that the amount of added length is that significant but it does appeared more voluminous nevertheless.¬†It can get clumpy if you’re not too careful. Thankfully, it hasn’t smudge or flaked on me with two coats.

The low is that it doesn’t hold well throughout the day for me.

On a positive note, you need less of the product because it is so thick and rich! ūüôā the brush has many bristles going that gives¬†your lashes a nice even fullness.

A¬†great formula with a luxe¬†packaging, though I feel for most people it will be more like an occasional treat or lovely gift item rather than something they’ll regularly repurchase.

What do you think of this?¬†Do you think¬†it’s “better than sex”,¬†or it is a darn good mascara! Make sure to leave your comments down below.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

Quo Face Contour Palette

I got this at Shoppers Drug Mart and I quite like this product! I bought this contour palette the same time I purchased the other two Quo eyeshadow palettes which I had review here. The packaging is great, there is no fragrance, and it does not break me out.

Quo has launched two limited edition contour palettes and a contour brush. The palettes are priced at $18.00 and the brush is $16.00. And of course, Quo does go on sale so there is always a chance of getting it cheaper!

This is a limited edition and since it was on liquidation, I so had to get it. I found the light palette to be perfect, with both a matte highlight and cool contour shade.

The product is quite pigmented (bronzer and the highlighter) and¬†it’s a¬†powder formula and not a cream contour kit.¬†It’s not as silky smooth as I would like but they¬†still work very¬†well.

However, after using it a few times, i’ve noticed its flaws. the highlight shade is barely pigmented, and does not show up on my light-medium skin tone. I really like the highlighter since it does show up on my¬†on my light-medium skin tone but the bronzer is a bit lacking.

Well,¬†the only negative thing I could say is the pigment which isn’t as rich as I would have liked. But that isn’t exactly a bad thing when we are talking about highlight. The colors are buildable and blendable and for $18.00 I think they are totally worth it.

It’s cheap and lovely so that is a bonus! This stuff lasts forever so it’s easier on the wallet.

So as I’ve mentioned above this is a limited edition and if you’re looking for a frugal contour run to your nearest Shoppers Drug Mart asap. You get 20x points on your purchase.

That’s it for now and¬†I hope you’ve enjoyed reading this post. Until next time, stay beautiful!

What’s your favorite contour palette from high end to drugstore brands?

Thank you so much.
