Too Faced The Beautiful and the Bronzed Palette French Riviera Edition Review and Swatches
One of my resolutions for 2018 is to stop being such an easy target for new releases, 2017 me would peruse the New In section religiously and salivate over the description boxes of YouTube videos until my debit card would scream for help. A surefire way to combat this is to pay better attention to my existing collection which is more extensive than one person would ever need. My problem is I get bored easily and new makeup excites me. It spurs my creativity and sparks off a million ideas for new looks. Luckily this is reserved especially for eyeshadow, I have so much eyeshadow. My two favourite steps in my makeup routine are eyeshadow and contouring. There is nothing better than being able to chisel out my face. For this reason I never cared much for bronzer, this gorgeous and convenient travel palette from Too Faced called The Beautiful and the Bronzed French Riviera edition, which is all my Fitzgerald fantasies come true, that I snatched on eBay in my first year at university has barely been touched as a result of this. Since I purchased the Sleek Makeup Face Form Contour Kit in Medium every other cheek product has been long discarded. It wasn’t until I got the NYX Contour and Highlight Pro Palette, which I currently, frustratingly, cannot locate, that I developed an appreciation for bronzer. How it warms and livens up my skin, adds shape without being harsh, grey or too dark.

My plan therefore is to put this little bronzer wardrobe to good use. It would be much better suited to fairer skin than mine but it is what it is, at least with it being winter my skin is a fair as it goes. Hopefully I will get some good use out of it and it will be a decent stand in for my NYX palette. Truly I don’t have a bad word to say about it, all the powders are soft, smooth and buttery to the touch, everything even after many years of neglect smells and operates perfectly. Even the liquid Primed and Poreless bronze tint is intact, still the exact same consistency, colour and finish as when I first bought it. I am excited to create looks with it, even if I only end up using it for my eyes. I would love to know if there are any makeup products you have ever bought and used only once or twice before moving to greener pastures. Let me know in the comments below, hopefully you will be seeing some looks with this palette very soon. Don’t forget to follow me on Bloglovin’. Take care.

  3. Amazing products!!

  4. I'm doing the same thing! Plus, Too Faced still has all of these bronzers. I think it's cool you have a package that contains ALL of them! Less to carry around :)

  5. Yes, I have the same goal. I want to be content with what I have and not always be chasing the next new release. I haven't tried any of Too Face's bronzers yet.

  7. I have so many bronzers, highlighters and contour palettes yet I've been salivating over the Too Faced Cocoa Contour Palette. But I'm really trying to save and not splurge impulsively on makeup this year (though I did splurge on Nature's Republic products and will do a post on that soon). These are beautiful swatches, and I hope your year is going well so far!
