Better Together: Too Faced x Kat Von D

You may have seen on my Instagram over the summer that I received a lovely gift from the Lovelyloot team for reviewing their app on the app store. I had mentioned to them that I like makeup, so I thought I would get a deluxe sample or two. Imagine my surprise when the full-size Better Together Ultimate Eye Collection Too Faced x Kat Von D showed up on my doorstep! These are two brands that I’ve only tried a product or two of, so I was thrilled to get this. This set contains a two sides; a bold side and a subtle side.

The Too Faced half contained a Better Than Sex Mascara and 6 neutral eyeshadows, in both shimmer and matte.  I have been using the mascara for a few weeks now, and while it doesn’t have my heart the way the Benefit They’re Real does, it does make my lashes fuller and longer. My one complaint is that this mascara tends to clump. The eyeshadows are all gorgeous and right up my alley, as I prefer neutral shades. I can actually see myself using all of them regularly, except maybe Lovely, the light pink color.

 The Kat Von D half contains the Tattoo Liner eyeliner pen and 6 bold shades. I have not used the Tattoo Liner yet, but since discovering eyeliner pens (my first one was the Stila one), I have become a huge fan so I am sure I will get a lot of use out of this one. The eyeshadows, while more bold than I normally wear, are gorgeous and will make some fun looks. I think I will actually use yours, darling and lovestruck quite a bit.
The packaging is also gorgeous. Each half of the heart is it’s own palette, but they have a magnetic binding so they can hold together magnetically to form a full heart. Of course, the gold or silver designs on the pink or black packaging makes it even more swoon-worthy.
These are both brands I’ve been curious to try, so I’m really excited to have this amazing collaboration to test them out. What are your thoughts on these brands or products?
