Too Faced Smoky Eye Kit

Posted by Lipglossiping On October - 7 - 2009

Halloween’s a-coming… and I’ve got my beady eye on the Too Faced Smoky Eye Kit.


I am such a sucker for ‘tutorial’ kits like these, but aside from the ‘novelty’ I think I would get a lot of wear from this throughout the year.

If you ignore the whole ‘smoky’ angle… this is a palette of wearable colours suitable for both day and evening.  However, I wonder if the inclusion of that drawer makes the whole thing a little chunkier than it needs to be – especially with travel and portability in mind.

Are you a fan of Too Faced? I have a couple of the old Quickie Chronicles that I enjoy using, they’re fab for taking on weekends away, talk about space-saving!  I know a lot of people dislike the cardboard packaging so often used by the ‘funkier’ brands.. but I don’t have any concerns as I’ve always found it to stand up well to daily use and carting about.

Too Faced Smoky Eye Kit is available from Boots or online at HQHair and is priced at £22

What’s on your wishlist for Halloween?

    I’ve got my eyes on quite a few bits at the mo but none of them really have to do with Halloween but they are makeup and for some reason I’ve drawn a complete blank.

    One tip I have about buying Too Faced, go on Ebay before going to the shops because they always have tonnes of authentic Too Faced stuff on there and it’s often a lot cheaper than it would be in store/online anywhere else

    I want to get the lighter one of these kits but ill do it via ebay! Usa prices are more reasonable!

  4. Hey chick,

    Looks good… hope you’ll post a look with it soon 😉
    I’ve only ever bought one of the Galaxy Glam eyeshadows from TooFaced but I was really impressed by it… they were actually along a very similiar line to the MAC Style Black eyeshadows but without the glitter – very nice indeed.

    Btw, I posted out your polishes yesterday so they should be with you very soon. :)

  5. @Sophie, that looks like a really nice little set!

    @Rhamnousia – You’re not allowed to draw a blank! Enquiring minds need to know! I have a wishlist to fill! And oh yes, I <3 the Bay.

    @Tali – The Natural Eye one? ’tis beautiful… is it out yet?

    @LionLovingTiger – I hope I do too! See Mr. Lipglossiping… see why I NEEEEEDDD it! Oh, I really like the look of the Galaxy Glams too… swirled loveliness. But I was unsure as to the quality. And now you’ve put me right I can happily add it to my must haves.

    Re: The polishes, thank you so much *eek* postman better be nice to me tomorrow!

    I got the Natural Eyes one of these in the recent Boots 3 for 2 . It’s nice but I agree about the bulky drawer – totally unnecessary. Would have been better to lose the drawer and cheapy mini brushes and include a mirror instead.

    Generally Too Faced make great eyeshadow – can’t comment on any of their other products though.
