I’m at it again with another Too Faced holiday review! I got overly excited about the Boss Lady set (see previous post), so I figured why not pick up the Best Year Ever set too! This $49 set comes with 18 shadows, 1 blush, 1 bronzer, 1 highlighter, a mini Better Than Sex mascara and a makeup bag.
I’m going to cut to the chase here. The quality in this set is nothing like the Boss Lady set. I was hoping that the shimmers in here would be bright and metallic and that the mattes would be pigmented and blendable. Sadly, the quality of the shadows just wasn’t there for me.
The shades in the I Believe In Pink palette swatched pretty nicely. I was hoping they would perform well on the eyes but they applied patchy and it took a lot to build the colors up. The blush, Pink Poinsettia, was somewhat sheer but could be built up to have more intensity. I enjoyed the shade and formula of this blush!
The shades in the Natural Beauty palette were a little better than the Pink palette. They were nicely pigmented but once again, they didn’t perform well on the eyes. The bronzer is actually a really pretty warm tone with some faint shimmer. It was too warm for my skin tone, but the formula was really nice!
The Super Fun Night palette was my least favorite of the three. The shades swatched quite sheer and I couldn’t get them to work on the eyes. They were patchy and didn’t have a lot of color payoff. The highlighter was actually pretty. It applied very subtle but after I wet my brush it created an intense glow!
Overall, the blush, bronzer, and highlighter were the only shades in the set that seemed to be good quality. The shadows were a miss for me. I’m not sure why the quality of this set varied so much from the Boss Lady set. I would recommend passing on this one and picking up the Boss Lady set from Sephora!
