Sephora Holiday Haul & Review

Hey all! Here we are again with some new Sephora goodies. I took advantage of the $25 off of $50 coupon and picked up one Holiday set and one mini/travel sized product that I already knew I would love.

I decided to give the Too Faced Melted lipsticks a second try after seeing Chelle from Make Up Your Mind talk about them oh-so-lovingly. With that in mind, I picked up this mini set of 6 Too Faced products. I normally an so in love with Too Faced as a brand from their cruelty-free status to their adorable packaging but I didn’t get along with their Melted lipstick before. This Too Faced Melted Kisses and Sweet Cheeks set included 3 of the Melted lipsticks and 3 Love Flushed blushes which I had already tried and love the formula of.

Each lipstick is paired with a blush so you have:

Melted Nude and Love Hangover which are the nudey peaches of the bunch;

Melted Peony and Justify My Love which are lovely baby pinks; and

Melted Fig and Your Love Is King which are the plummy shades.

I love the blushes as I suspected but what about the lipsticks? I had tried Melted Peony before and found it was kind of gritty and oily feeling. I may even go as far as saying it sucked. This time around, I like them! They are absolutely different than what I had tried before and I’m glad I tried them again!

To make this a $50 purchase, I also grabbed a Smashbox Photo Finish primer in the purple Pore Minimizing formula. I have pretty religiously been using the other two primers (original and colour correcting) I own so I thought I would try yet another. I am crossing my fingers they come out with a mini of their blemish control formula as well but I may take a chance and give it a try anyway.

This primer was just as lovely as the other two but I would say the hardest to spread. I will say that I do get oily when using any three of these primers but I just blot or deal with it because they make my make up application a million times easier and feel  better than others I have used.

I hope you enjoyed this little review! Be sure to let me know what you think of the Too Faced Melted lipsticks or Love Flushes blushes & Smashbox Photo Finish Primers! I think they can be love/hate products but now you know where I stand.

Til next time, ttfn x

  1. That’s sooo weird that you got a gritty/oily one! What a weird combo. I know my Melted violet definitely feels more oily than the others… maybe there’s just a bad batch every now and then? 😦 So glad you love these ones now though!!
