Breakfast With @TooFaced

When Cate from Creative Media Marketing invited us to Gemma on Bowery for breakfast and bronzers, I thought it was a match made in sparkly heaven. The director of marketing Hallie Freeman and director of artistry Kalina Fernandez of TooFaced gave us a sneak peek for the highly anticipated summer collection. We got the summer goodies like Too Faced The Bronzed & The Beautiful – French Riviera Edition and Too Faced Retractable Bronze-Buki Brush 🙂

Created by the rebel artists Jeremy Johnson and Jerrod Blandino in 1998, they thought their clients were too into their makeup that they were ‘too faced’ in a way. I originally thought about being ‘two-faced’ in your ability to change your look, but in this case it was all about being too involved in cosmetics.

This obsession is another reason why all Too Faced products include a little ‘How To’ so you’re not so pressured in your application. We’re making it easy for you! This summer, they’re launching a new bronzing collection, with the major feature being a tinted primer that can act like foundation. Great for all skin types, it’s a hassle-free product you have to own!

There’s also the retractable Bronze-buki brush made out of teddy bear hair. I was advised that no teddy bears were harmed in this process, their hairs were donated out of the goodness of their hearts. So cute, right?

Two new volumizing lip glosses with Lip Injection are coming out: a fierce hot pink called ‘Chihuahua Bite’ named after the little office rascal and ‘This is Pretty!’ for a pink that works for every skin color.

Lastly, the most interesting thing is their new ‘Size Queen’ mascara. This is the biggest brush I’ve ever seen! It’s bigger than my eye! The dual-helix brush and keratin-infused curl-setting formula creates a lot of dimension and is corkscrew-shaped to target every lash. Only available in black, you better be ready to bat those lashes with this!

Check me out in this bronze beauty loot!

@cinemasecrets Brush Cleaner


Usually I wash my brushes in soap and water, lay them out to dry and call it a day. I got a sample of Cinema Secrets Professional Brush cleaner and of course I tried it. My my, I was blown away how my brushed went back to their ORIGINAL shape, color. Woweee.

Brush Cleaner is required to do two things. First, it should clean brushes by removing all makeup (any type) from your brushes and condition the brushes to promote the longevity needed for a profesional quality brush. Second, the brush cleaner needs to santitize and remove all bacteria from the brush. Cinema Secrets Brush Cleaner is the only Brush Cleaner that will completly remove 99.9% of the bacteria in your brush.

This is my go-to product now and it’s quick and easy to use. Thanks for the sample or I would have never known how nasty my brushes were 🙁
