The time has finally come my friends! Nikkie has released her collaboration with Too Faced and it’s set to release at Mecca stores and online in Australia tomorrow 27/9!
N was lucky enough to get her hands on it when she was in London so we’ve had the chance to test it out and we thought we’d give you our thoughts so you know whether or not to spend the money on it tomorrow.
The first palette will be $82 AUD both in stores and online and will have free shipping from www.mecca.com.au.
Each set contains the face and eye palette with 9 eyeshadows, two sweetheart blushes, a bronzer and highlighter. There is also a deluxe sample size of the Better Than Sex Mascara in an exclusive purple shade, a deluxe sample size of the Shadow Insurance Eyeshadow Primer, a Glitterally Glamour Fust Glitter Pigment and a full sized Sketch Marker Eyeliner in Black. Nikkie also included a glamour guide with three different possible looks.
I really love the colour range of the eyeshadows! There are four matte shades: Ivy, Painkiller, Makeup & Chill and Wanted and five shimmer shades: Sugar Coated, Frosted Yum, Irresistable, Mystic Hour and Wham Bam. The blushes are beauuutiful! There are two: I Will Always Love You and Justify My Love. The bronzer is the classic Chocolate Soleil bronzer and the highlight is actually Champagne Truffle which is an eyeshadow shade from the original Chocolate Bar palette and it is gorgeous!!! My favourite eyeshadow colours are Ivy, Painkiller, Makeup & Chill and Mystic Hour! They make a damn good eye look!! The Glitter is an original Nikkie shade so you know it’s going to be pretty specky and she sure didn’t disappoint with “Glitterally”! The Shadow Insurance dries clear and the Sketch Marker is a classic black and the mini Better Than Sex Mascara is such a cool purple!
Overall I really love the formulation of this palette! I do think that Wham Bam and Wanted need a bit of work as they aren’t very pigmented but that’s not necessarily a bad thing for a black shadow as it is easily buildable. They all blend really nicely and the glitter shades look absolutely stunning when applied with the finger! The blushes aren’t overly pigmented but I personally like that as you can build them up and don’t get a massive chunk of colour on first application! The bronzer is gorgeous and buildable and the highlight is like a sparkly angel came and kissed your face (without any chunky bits)! I’m not personally a massive fan of the shadow Insurance because I need something a bit stronger to stop my shadow from creasing. I’m not 100% sold on the Mascara either but I actually find this smaller size to transfer way less than my full sized black one! The Sketch Marker does run into any lines but it’s very black and dries matte which is great! As for the glitter, I absolute love it! I’m sad it’s in a small size to be honest!
I know there have been mixed reviews for this palette but I personally thinks it’s worth the money! If you are fan of Nikkie (like us – she’s definitely our soul sista) then this will make you very happy so I’d jump on it first thing in the morning! The colour are great as you can create every day or more dramatic and fun looks and because it has two blushes, a bronzer and a highlighter it’s great for travel! The little pouch the extras come in is great for travel too and I love the leopard print!
I hope this has helped you if you were umming and aahing over whether or not you wanted to buy this palette! Do you think you’ll grab it tomorrow? What’s your favourite shade? Let us know in the comments below!
