Hi There lovelies! Hope you all had a great day today. Today I want to share with you my review on the much awaited Too Faced x Kat Von D Better Together Ultimate Eye Collection ($65). Hope you enjoy the blog as much as I loved writing it.
Description: This is a super-limited-edition collection with an interlocking heart eye shadow palette, Kat Von D’s beloved Tattoo Liner, and a full size of Too Faced’s iconic Better Than Sex Mascara. Better Together is a collaboration between makeup icons, Kat Von D and Too Faced Cosmetics. Kat and Jerrod each curated six brand new eye shadows for their respective sides of the palette. Inspired by a BFF heart necklace, the palette has a magnetic center panel, so you can separate the two halves of the palette. Create a look using just one side of the palette, or mix and match shades from both sides.
The Kat Von D Palette is accompanied by the beloved Tattoo Liner. This tattoo liner is a liquid eyeliner with an innovative brush tip for effortless, precise application. The fine brush tip glides across the lashline for incredibly fluid application, allowing you to create a variety of looks with ease.
Finally, finish off the look with Too Faced’s Better Than Sex Mascara. With each coat, lashes are full, defined, and stretched to unbelievable lengths for 1,944 percent more volume. The collagen-fueled formula and hourglass-shaped brush separate, coat, and curl each lash to voluptuous perfection.
Verdict: You only get 12 shades but they’re all so creamy and amazing. I love the bold colorful side of Kat Von D is juxtaposed by soft palettes of Too Faced. One of the matte pigment was non-existent, I had to swipe about a dozen times to get any pigment and they were dry and powdery. As you can see from the swatch the purple color looks straight up brown. Nonetheless, I did like the shimmer shades. As for the Kat Von D palette, I do liked how pigmented the shades are.
I have always liked the Too Faced mascara because it provides amazing volume. It’s not my favorite mascara. It’s really black and makes my lashes long and voluminous. However, you have you apply a lot of coats to get that looks. As for the liner, it applies smoothly and stays in place all day. The black is dark and rich. However, I like my Maybelline New York Eye Studio Master Precise Liquid Eyeliner, which cost just a fraction ($5.99). Overall, I will give 3 stars to this collection. For $65 I don’t think it’s worth the price to get a 12 shades palette. The full sized mascara and liner together cost $43 and for $22 you are getting a 12 shades eyeshadow palette. Hence, if you already like the mascara and the liner, then with just $22 more you can try the new shadow palette.
Overall, I did not like some of the 12 shades from the Better Together collection. I am not a big fan of this palette or the mascara. The packaging is great and the concept is beautiful but the collection is just not for me. I think that I liked their individual palettes much better.
