My Verdict

  1. I totally agree with both Founder intentions – to create awareness on cruelty free beauty products.
  2. The makeup pouch is so cute – can use them as a coin purse. I intended to use it as my makeup bag, but it was too small for my makeup items. But the travel sizes should fit inside perfectly!
  3. I am not that agree with the colour combination. I noticed that Too Faced colour selections are more into pinkish tone and KVD lips selection are more into nude (for studded lisptick) and Magenta Red (for the liquid lipstick).
  4. For me with tan and medium skin tone, the Too Faced “So Happy Together” pink blush does not make me happy at all. I would prefer the blush in Coral tone which is more versatile and can fit into larger skin tone range.
  5. Nevertheless, the Too Faced Rosy Glow Highlighter is nice as it gives a shimmery rosy gold glow on my cheek. Its looks more like healthy glow and not intense glow.
  6. I KVD studded lipstick is very creamy and moisturizing. However, the “MUSE” shades when I wear it alone, makes my face complexion looks more darker.
  7. As for the KVD “XO” everlasting liquid Lisptick, I love the bright Magenta Colour as its so bright and intense. This liquid lipstick is high pigmented, moisturising and not drying my lips.
  8. I noticed that this two can be layered together and create another dark pink shimmery shade for your lips.
  9. The price at MYR165 for these 4 deluxe items (approx each for MYR41) makes me able to try their product and see if it suits me before I purchase it in normal retail price.

So far I love to have these cute things in my vanity. This items can give me some inspiration and for me its okay to act like small kids sometimes by owning pink and cute items. Until we meet again in my next post. XOXO

Hello Dear. Thank you for dropping to my blog. Really appreciate it! I believe finding the right makeup is like participating Treasure Hunt. Its a long process and too many trying and error. To be honest I also encountered many products that are just not works for me and it was bit frustrating. Considering we have spent lots of money and time. But don’t worry. Let me know if you need some advise. I am not an expert but we can always share great information together.. XOXO
