Contouring, it’s everywhere! And doing it right takes the right…
The Too Faced x Kat Von D Better Together collection launches December 26th, and I was lucky enough to get my hands on everything a couple days early. So ch-ch-check it out below!
BETTER TOGETHER BESTSELLING MASCARA & LINER DUO – $28 CAD/$20 USD
Minis of two of the most iconic products from each brand: Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara and Kat Von D Tattoo Liner!
The Better Than Sex mascara gives length, a touch of volume and makes lashes flutter! I’m wearing this in both looks below.
And if you haven’t tried KVD’s Tattoo Liner, you are missing out. Now I didn’t add this into any looks below because, honestly, everyone has seen reviews of this before. It’s blacker than black and just a really good felt-tip liner pen.
BETTER TOGETHER CHEEK & LIP MAKEUP BAG SET – $46 CAD/$38 USD
What sold me on this set was the adorable double-sided makeup bag. Glitter and puppies and cats and hearts! You also get a nice intro into each brand with a Too Faced blush and highlighter as well as two Kat Von D lipsticks exclusive to this set.
The Too Faced Love Flush Blush in So Happy Together (peony pink) and Too Faced Candlelight Glow Highlighting Powder in Rosy Glow (golden sheer) are absolutely stunning. These go together really well and give the cheeks a healthy glow. They also pair perfectly with the two Kat Von D lip shades in the bag.
The first Mini Kat Von D product is a Studded Kiss Lipstick in Muse (shimmering nude). Although I don’t really love lipsticks this small (it’s a lot like Bite’s minis that tend to break if aren’t careful), I LOVE this shade!
Muse is a beautiful shimmer nude that’s a bit on the warm side. It’s hydrating and creamy and feels great on.
Here’s Muse paired with the Too Faced blush, highlight and eyeshadows.
The Mini Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in XO (matte oxblood) is a lot like her popular shade Sante Sangre only a bit more on the cool side.
If you haven’t tried the Kat Von D Everlasting formula, you are in for a treat. It’s hydrating, doesn’t crack on the lips and feels fairly comfortable (and ooooh man, are my lips chapped here). Shown above wearing two thin layers.
Here’s XO paired with the Kat Von D Better Together eyeshadows. So pretty!
BETTER TOGETHER ULTIMATE EYE COLLECTION – $79 CAD/$65 USD
Now here’s what you probably came here for: the double eyeshadow heart palette that sticks together with magnets! This set also includes a full-sized Kat Von D Tattoo Liner and Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara.
The Too Faced Eye Shadow palette has six shades: BFF (matte vanilla), Lovely (matte baby pink), Friendspiration (metallic bronze), Heart of Gold (gold glitter), Power Couple (antique gold glitter), Better Together (plum glitter).
For this look, I used all but the two bronze/brown shades. I started with a base of BFF and a hint of Lovely above the crease.
I then patted Heart of Gold on the lid and added Better Together in the crease and outer V.
Also wearing Too Faced Love Flush Blush in So Happy Together, Candlelight Glow in Rosy Glow and Kat Von D Studded Lipstick in Muse.
The Kat Von D Eye Shadow palette also has six shades: Por Vida (matte white), Lovestruck (iridescent peach), Darling (metallic pewter), Swoon (metallic scarlet), Yours (matte stone gray), Devotion (matte jet black).
I was able to use all six shadows for this look starting with Por Vida (white) as a base. I then blended Swoon into the crease and Yours into the outer V.
On the lid, I’m wearing Darling patted on the centre and inside third, plus I added Devotion (the matte black) on the lashline. I finished up with Lovestruck under the brow and cleaned up the “wing” edges with a hint of Por Vida.
