REVIEW | TooFaced Sweethearts Blush

I first discovered TooFaced with my purchase of the infamous Chocolate palette about a year ago. I wasn't disappointed by the hype it had produced and from that day on, I knew I wanted to try more that the brand had to offer. 
Whilst I had dabbled with eye and lip products, I'd never tried anything they had to offer for the face and when the Sweetheart Blushes came on the scene, I knew I had to try one. A few months ago, I finally picked up the shade I'd been eyeing up for some time and today, I'm going to review it for you - enjoy.


Where to Buy From? Debenhams
How Much?  £24.00

What TooFaced Have to Say:

"In each baked, heart shaped blush there are three individual color swatches. The baking process and multiple colors create dimensional color to provide the look of younger, brighter, healthier skin. It’s like having Hollywood lighting wherever you go."

My Thoughts:

The first thing that I noticed about this blush is its packaging. Like with all of the TooFaced product's the packaging is so adorable, very girly and just well, pretty. I really like this aspect because it's nice for a beauty product to also look aesthetically good itself - especially if you like to display your makeup items. What I'm not so much of a fan of however is the Benefit-esque cardboard packaging. For something as expensive as it is, I would like to have seen better packaging made from a more durable material.


So, in terms of the product itself I'll firstly start by talking about the shade. As far as I am aware, the Sweethearts Blushes come in 3 shades, mine is called "Something About Berry". As mentioned in the description TooFaced provided for this blush, it is actually a trio which can be applied individually by colour or swirled together and applied as one. The colours within this blush are a mauve pink shade, a peach and a deeper magenta pink. When swirled together, you get a beautiful medium pink shade that has a gorgeous and subtle shimmer to it. 


The blush itself is baked and this is always a formulation of blush that I enjoy. I find colours to be more intense but at the same time, I find them to also be softer and easier to blend. I'd say this is definitely the case with this blush. I would however say, it is quite easy to get carried away and blend away the intensity on this blush so I'd suggest going slow and using more of a "patting" motion where you'd like the most colour payoff. The colour is really beautiful though and it adds a lovely natural glow and flush of colour to the cheeks. As stated, it is buildable depending on the look you're going for and I think this shade is versatile for a lot of skin colours. Having worn it for at least a good 6 hours, I can definitely say that it lasts well as well which is always a winner in my book. 

Overall, I'm really enjoying this blusher and I think it's really beautiful. I'm definitely interested in trying the peach shade in the range and I do believe this is a good quality blush that's worth the money - especially if you're a fan of brands like TooFaced. If the price tag is a little too much, I think this would make a great gift for a beauty lover.

Christmas Beauty Gifts from Too Faced and Benefit!

It's socially acceptable to start talking about Christmas now, right? Regardless, whether you're a fan of the early Christmas organiser or you leave it all to the last minute, it's nice to have some gift inspiration.

Whilst spending part of the money I should really be saving on you know, the necessities like makeup, I realised that some of these purchases would actually make great gifts. If you know someone who loves beauty and makeup, this may the post for you.

Too Faced's Melted French Kisses Gift Set - £22.00


TooFaced's infamous Melted Lipsticks are £19.00 a pop and so are quite the splurge for someone new to them and indeed, most of us in general for only one product. However, they recently came out with a cute little Christmas gift set containing four mini Melted Lipsticks for you to try and for the impressive price of only £22.00! You get a good variety of shades with some neutrals and brights as well as the chance to try not only their original formula, but also their "Metallic" formulation too. As a fan of their liquid lipsticks, I'm definitely all for this set and as anyone who has tried liquid lipsticks know, they last for ages so though these may be small, you're going to get a lot out of them.

The shades you get in this collection are (From L to R):

Metallic Peony, Chihuahua, Metallic Macaron & Berry. 

Benefit Stocking Filler Gift Set - £15.00


This last gift idea is probably my favourite and is one I treated myself to last year as well! Basically, every year Boots have on offer in which you receive a free (and super cute) Benefit stocking as well as 4 luxury sized samples from the brand for £15.00. The selections change slughly every year and this year, I got 2 mini's of their That Gal Primer, Bad Gal Lash Mascara and a mini Bad Gal eyeliner!

As with the TooFaced set, this is such a great way to try out some of what other brands have to offer - especially if you're new to them. You get deluxe samples in each set and so you're going to get a really good idea of what a product has to offer and whether or not it's for you!


What do you think of these cute Christmas gifts?
