It was my birthday last week, I’d like to pretend at my ripe old age I don’t get excited but I really do! Mostly I had money and vouchers as I’d hoped for and so I mostly got clothes which is lovely.
I did however get a couple of lovely bits from Too Faced. Namely the Sweetheart Beads Radiant Glow Face Powder and the Sweethearts Perfect Flush Brush. Absolutely love the packaging and the products contained within. If you’ve not yet tried anything from Too Faced I recommend you do, everything I’ve tried has been exceptionally good quality.
I’m going to start with showing you the Sweetheart Beads Radiant Glow Face Powder (£26).
It’s not only a beautiful looking product, it does pretty beautiful things to the skin too. I’m not going to lie, there was less product in the pot than I thought there’d be judging by the promotional shots I’ve seen, it’s pretty much as you can see in the picture above, there aren’t any beads below that layer. That said, actually there’s a lot of product there.
What you’ve got is a little pot of gold, tan, peach and pink hearts. Sweep your brush over them and then apply. I use all over as I think it’s pretty radiant rather than sparkly or shiny, I don’t think there’s enough glow there to use this as just a highlight unless you wanted a very subtle look But over the entire face? Hello glow!
The other item I received was something I’ve wanted for months, the Sweetheart Perfect Flush Blush (£24). I’m so incredibly cross with myself as I dropped my camera on it before I had chance to photograph or use it!
A really beautiful blusher, again this is one for fans of glow. Three stripes of pink, peach and coral. I’ve not used these individually, I’m just swiping my brush all over and applying. It’s so gorgeous, even nicer than I thought it was going to be and I had high expectations!
The best way to show you what I mean by the glow imparted by these products is to show you. So here’s my face of the day and I’m wearing both of these. And I’ve been photobombed by Lola!
My husband bought both of the above from beautybay, one of my favourite retailers!
As an aside and completely none cosmetic related, my favourite present was the one I bought myself. I love my Printstagram!
