Now, it is no secret that Valentines Day isn’t for everyone, some people love it and some people hate it. I am on the fence, as much as I love the idea of showing your partner/family/friends how much you care, I don’t think you should wait until February 14th to do so, nor do I think you need to spend a silly amount of money! Whether you love it or hate it, you can’t deny Valentines day is the perfect excuse to buy ALL the pretty pink heart shaped things!
When I think of the perfect Valentines makeup, my mind instantly goes to Too Faced. Everything from this brand is so beautifully designed, it is the perfect girly brand with everything uniquely packaged, with each product being amazing quality too.
I picked up two different blushes from the Too Faced range, the Love Flush long-lasting 16-hour blush, and the Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush.
LOVE FLUSH Long Lasting 16-Hour Blush
“Flush all day and night with the blush of true love. The long-wear, fade-proof, smudge-proof formula keeps your cheeks perfectly flushed for up to 16 hours. Pigment-rich, high-impact shades give a pretty pop of color for any skin tone.”
This is the newest blush range from Too Faced, featuring 6 gorgeous shades all named after famous love songs, making them perfect for Valentines Day! I went with the shade ‘I will Always Love You’, which happens to be one of my favourite love songs ever! This is a gorgeous peachy coral shade, with a slight gold pigment.
The packaging on these blushes is sooo adorable, they each come in a gorgeous box decorated with gold flowers, hearts and two little bunnies (who doesn’t love hearts and bunnies?!). The Love Flush Blush is a heart shaped peach compact, matching the colour of the blush inside with the Too Faced script on the front in gold. The same logo is embossed on the powder inside, with the same pretty bunnies and floral patterns. This compact is so beautiful, I love that it matches the colour of the blush inside, it really reminds me of the play makeup I had as a little girl, I love that grown up makeup packaging doesn’t just have to be plain and boring!
The pigment on this blush is incredible, you really need the teeniest amount on your brush for a great colour pay off. This blush claims to last up to 16 hours, and though I have yet to wear it that long I can definitely believe this! It really doesn’t budge and I only noticed the colour intensity fading slightly as the day went on. I am a big lover of peach blushes, I find them the most flattering on my skin and they go with almost any lip colour.
This blush would be a lovely Valentines gift, and would be definitely one to wear for day to evening, especially as you don’t need to touch up! My only slight disappointment with this blush is the size, it only has 6 grams of product in the compact, which is a small amount for the price of the product (£25), however the flawless packaging and great colour pay off/longevity of this product makes up for this.
SWEETHEARTS Perfect Flush Blush
“Blush is like dessert, you didn’t know you loved it until you had a taste of it. Our blush was developed with easy application and a no-fail colour palette in mind—to take the guesswork out of creating a sweet, romantic flush. It’s the little black dress of blushes.”
The Sweethearts Blush is another gorgeous blush range from Too Faced. There are 3 shade options, and each shade is made up of 3 different colours which you can mix together or use separately to find your perfect blush shade combination. I went with the shade ‘Candy Glow’ which is the perfect trio of soft pinks shades which blend to make a gorgeous bright healthy glow for your cheeks.
These blushes also have heavenly packaging, each coming in a box decorated with gold silhouettes of flowers, bunnies and ribbons, much like the Love Flush packaging. This lovely blush comes in a dreamy gold heart shaped paper box, which reminds me of old fashioned cosmetics, the lid is a pale pink colour with gold opulent patterns, and the Too Faced script in the middle in black. Unlike the Love Flush blush, this doesn’t come with a mirror.
The Sweethearts blushes are all baked, which gives them a gorgeous texture and doesn’t leave them feeling dry or powdery on the skin. They apply really smoothly and have a slight pearly finish which leaves your cheeks looking radiant. I love how luminous this blush is on the face.
Like the Love Flush blush, my only disappointment is the amount of product you get for your money, which is 5.5 grams for £24, however I feel like you are getting endless colour options with this blush, as you can mix the 3 different shades to make whatever combination you fancy. This blush is also very long lasting and has a good colour pay off, which makes it worth the money.
Both these blushes are amazing quality and their lovely, heart shaped packaging makes them the perfect valentines gift for a girlfriend, best friend, mum, brother, or even just for yourself! I am always so impressed with Too Faced, this gorgeous brand is always consistently fabulous and I would recommend checking them out if you haven’t already! You won’t regret it.
Have a magical day,
