Why Cult Beauty loves Too Faced

#TeamCB has loooooong been obsessed with {Too Faced}’s über-cute and incredible range of cosmetic essentials. Bringing a hefty dose of humour to your go-to make up menu, this line-up has a tongue-in-chic approach to looking drop. dead. gorgeous (even when you don’t deserve to… thank the actual GODS for the {Hangover Primer})! Providing a swathe of pre-pay day pick-me-ups, find out which of Too Faced’s super-heroes have already made their way into our bulging online baskets…

“The frosés have been flo-ooo-owing, which is why I’ve been entrusting an appropriately-titled priming potion to disguise the tell-tale signs of too much fun. Not just for hiding hangovers (although this gets the ‘Best in Class’ award for that), Too Faced’s {Hangover Primer} (above) is the perfect foil for dulled, lacklustre skin that needs an instant hit of moisture and a shot of luminosity. It’s perfect for pretending you’ve been virtuous… Sssh!” – Verity, Cult Beauty Content

“There are mascaras and there are mascaras… this one’s in the latter camp. A Stateside bestseller, as the name implies, this formula’s {Better Than Sex} – leaving my eyelashes all of a-flutter (and weak at the knees, if they had them)! Curling, thickening, lengthening… this hourglass wand does it all (and then some), inspiring passion that rivals my closest encounters. Much more than a crush, I think I’ve met my make up soulmate.” – Jessica, Cult Beauty Content

“I’ve been as good as gold (so far) this month, so I’m rewarding my endeavours with a sinful make up masterpiece… Appealing to my (v. expensive) tastes, the {Chocolate Gold Eyeshadow Palette} is irresistible (looking at it makes my mouth water!), and opens to reveal a sassy edit of the most seductive shades – sure to lure even those on a strict ‘no buying’ diet. I mean, who could resist it? Not me, that’s for sure…” – Maria, Cult Beauty Design

“I’m a sucker for a plumped-up, juicy pucker – and {Lip Injection Extreme} acts like fillers without any ouches. Inflating my dry, winter kiss to its full, pout-out-proud proportions (praise be), this silky serum has both quick (and long-term) benefits; optically and actually amping up the volume for an enviable, pillow-esque effect.” – Louisa, Cult Beauty Buying

“My kind of quickie, this ticks all my brow-grooming boxes in seconds. With a super-cute spoolie brush to tame every stray, the {Brow Quickie} comes in two flattering shades to add ‘oomph’ and deliver immaculate arches with next-to-none effort. Beauty with barely a wave of a wand? That’s the type of clinch that makes my pulse race.” – Christina, Cult Beauty Customer Service

“Living proof that diamonds really ARE a girl’s best friend, I’d be hard-pressed to choose the real thing over THIS hypnotic offering. The ‘Star of Africa’ in Too Faced’s captivating crown, the {Diamond Highlighter} lends multi-tonal glitz to cheekbones, collar bones or anywhere that needs a little extra sumthin’ sumthin’. Ultra-finely milled for a sophisticated glitz, it’s fair to say I’m pretty smitten with its petal-pink container.” – Leanne, Cult Beauty Buying
