2277648If you haven’t already figured this out by now, you should now that I love value sets, travel-sized products, and Too Faced! So, I ended up buying this Too Faced “Beauty Experts Darlings” Collection for $20 during my Ulta Haul! This was such an amazing price considering you get 4 mini products for the price of what one full-sized product would cost! I realized that I haven’t done an actual review in a while, so I thought you guys might like something a little different!

I have heard so many amazing things about this bronzer and have always wanted to try it. First of all, it actually does smell like chocolate and I love it so much! The only thing I don’t like about this is the cheap cardboard and plastic packaging. But other than that, it is just as good as everyone says it is! Hopefully, I will be doing a more detailed review on this soon, so keep your eyes out for one!

412wiq6x3PL._SY300_Mini Better Than Sex Mascara in “Black”: This size gives you 0.17 ounces, while the regular size gives you 0.27 ounces for $23. I have also heard a ton of people rave about this mascara, and let me tell you, this is so amazing! I’m speechless, that’s how amazing it is! A separate review for this will also be coming soon!

myW4xmTecMqYyzA4wkqMFVgMini La Creme Color Drenched Lip Cream in “Naked Dolly”: This one is 0.05 ounces while the original one is 0.11 ounces for $22. This packaging is adorable and super travel-friendly! However, considering the fact that Dolly Parton is my idol, the name of this shade kind of totally freaks me out! Moving right along, I can definitely tell that this lipstick is high quality! It is smooth, creamy, buttery, pigmented, and long-lasting! I would describe it as a pinky nude color with a satin finish. Despite all the amazing qualities that this product offers, it was actually my biggest disappointment out of everything. The shade is way too light for my tan skin and makes me look like I should be in a morgue with wearing a toe tag! Okay, that might have been a little too graphic, but you get the point! Although, this shade would look wonderful on fairer skinned girls, I really wish they would have included a more universal shade that everyone would look good in!

It prevents creasing and makes your shadow last longer. It is similar to Urban Decay’s Primer Potion and I plan on doing a comparison between the two once I use them more!

As you can see, this collection is such a great value and I would definitely encourage you to buy it if you are interested in any of these Too Faced products because they are all really high quality and last a lot longer than you would think! Hope all of you enjoyed this post and please keep the feedback coming!
