    Too Faced The Ultimate Box of Chocolate Eye shadow Collection

    It is a beautiful collection of eye shadows that smell like delicious chocolate. The Chocolate Bare Eye Shadow Collection has natural browns, delicate pinks and luscious plums. The Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Eye shadow collection has warm caramels, deep mochas, and bronzy chocolate hues.

    If you check out more Too Faced products, you’ll see there are a few items that incorporate chocolate (Chocolate Soleil bronzer, Milk Chocolate Soleil, Cocoa Powder Foundation just to name a few). While it’s a great time to purchase these items, they aren’t just out there for Valentine’s Day. According to Too Faced’s website, the Co-Founder and Creative Director, Jerrod Blandino was inspired to incorporate cocoa powder after having a chocolate facial and learning about the ingredient’s benefits at the spa. So not only are you getting a beautiful makeup pallet, which smells deliciously of chocolate, you are also benefiting from the anti-oxidant rich cocoa powder!

    Be sure to check back to Certified Fabulous on Monday for our makeup looks.

Too Face Summer Eyes 7.11.13I tend to tone down my eye make up in the summer for fear that it will melt off in the heat and humidity! But going out on summer nights, I still want to have a little fun ;) Too Faced Summer Eyes - Summer Sexy Shadow Collection allows me to do just that!

This collection comes with the essential summer colors and finishes in a resort-inspired theme. Rich, warm browns, with bright golds and oranges, combine with matte seashell, shimmery pink and mermaid green for the ultimate summer glamour! I love the variations of shimmer in the shadows; it allows you to really work with all the colors and combine them for great depth and dimension. My favorite aspect of the eye shadows is their vibrant color! The shadow that you place on your eye lids is exactly like the color in the palette, not a lighter imitation of it. These shadows go on bold and stay bold! I have never experienced such strong color in a powdered shadow, I usually only get this color on the first application with creme shadows. But Too Faced impressed me with this shadow collection! The "sunbeam" and "peach fuzz" are my favorite golds to use this summer. They create such a great vibrant, luxurious shimmer that really illuminates your eyes and will have you looking and feeling like a golden summer goddess! These colors, and your eyes, will not go unnoticed!

Another awesome aspect about this shadow collection is that it comes with an easy to follow "How-to Glamour Guide" that has its very own place in the shadow compact for easy access (tucked in front of the mirror). This guide features three looks: Day, Classic, and Fashion using all of the shadows in the collection. It's very easy to follow and shows you where to place each color around your eyes so that you can achieve the ultimate sexy summer eyes!

No need to fear! Quick, grab a pair of jeans, a sparkily top, take out the bun and run your fingers Majic Eye Kit Certified Fabulousthrough your hair for a sexy messy look, and grab your Eye Majic Kit!

Every season it's nice to freshen up your makeup variety to go with the trends of each season, but it is always necessary have a few basics that are your makeup bag constants. Smashbox has a variety of both trendy beauty and the basics, which I love! My makeup bags contains about 50% Smashbox products I use daily and I have never been disappointed by any of the products I have purchased or received for consideration to write about for this publication. 

Smashbox Photo finish color correcting primer 6.19.2013

I have 3 faves in particular that I turn to for simple, day makeup for work or if I want to wear a bold lip and neutralize the rest of my makeup. I always start with a foundation primer! In the past I never used primers because I didn't see a purpose, but now there are a variety of them that can correct skin issues or hide flaws even before you apply foundation or concealer. Smashbox Photo Finish Color Correcting Foundation Primer is my #1 product I apply before any makeup! Green color is made to offset red, uneven tones in the skin's pigment so it can look even. It also helps to minimize pores and wrinkles for a smooth, flawless "canvas" to "paint" on :) It goes on silky with no greasy feeling at all, and the lightweight formula blend in easily. It also has the added benefit of antioxidants with vitamins A & E so your skin can maintain health while looking amazing. 

Another Smashbox essential buy is the Love Me Eye Shadow Palette in Admire Me which is a nude palette for warm tones. It also comes in Entice Me which is a fashion palette for more dramatic, cool color tones. I adore the Admire Me because it has all of the basics one would need to create a nude eye that enhances the eyes way more effectively than just doing nothing at all. I always advise against doing nothing at all if you are a makeup person to begin with because what is the point of doing a whole foundation, flawless face look without accenting your facial features?? But that's just me :)

smashbox Love Me Eye Shadow Palette Admire Me beauty reviewThis palette is crucial to me because it perfectly gives me enough of all of the color which are broken up in a gorgeous design for the Love Me artwork created by NY graffiti artist Curtis Kulig. I love how the middle, designed piece can move up and down along with the cover to either help protect the shadows from mixing. I also found out it is great when dropped because even though my cover broke the Love Me design was intact and saved the shadow from breaking and becoming useless! Colors include: Champagne, Matte Nude, Soft Shimmering Coral, Bronze, Deep Golden Brown. I should also add that I do not like shimmer shadows but lately I have been drawn to the look of them and they have come a long way since I was in high school. Shimmers always seem so cheesy and immature to me, but once again my mind has been changed! The lesson would be to give makeup you once hated a second chance, hah.
