There is a New Kit in Town: Tricks of the Trade by Too Faced

I think Too Faced makes some fantastic cosmetics. They are consistently easy to use, reasonably priced, and always do exactly what they say they are going to do. Their Magic Wand Illuminating Foundation in New York Light is a daily use for me.

Recently, they released a great collection, especially for anyone new to the brand. The Too Faced Tricks of The Trade Makeup Collection comes with some excellent basics such as Too Faced Lash Injection Mini, Absolutely Invisible Pressed Powder, Shadow Insurance, Lip of Luxury in Totally Nude and Duo Eyeshadow in Totally Toasted.
Shadow Insurance is an excellent alternative to Urban Decay's Eyeshadow Primer Potion. Does exactly the same thing and is a bit cheaper, especially given the packaging problem. Totally Toasted is a beautiful shimmery neutral duo that you will find yourself wearing often. I've actually hit pan on mine. And my love for Lash Injection is well documented here.

I got this as a gift and it's really, really great. Lash Injection has become one of my favorite mascaras (again)! Ever since I tried to reduce the use of eyeliner, I started to use one shade of shimmery, light-colored eyeshadow to open up my eyes more; the Totally Toasted eyeshadow combo in this kit is perfect for this; it makes thing easier for me. I've also been wanting Eyeshadow Insurance and I finally got it - plus, it's the full sized one! The powder that comes with, which is also full-sized I believe, is now the substitute for my long lost MAC blot powder. Mind as well put some use to it (Totally Invisible Powder) right? Or I could just use it to set my foundation. I bought Lash Injection (full-sized) a long time ago but just renewed my love for it when I gave the sample back to my cousin because I told her to try it out and she loved it! It's thee curling mascara; it worked wonders on her lashes even without a primer. Wow, I just rambled. I didn't realize how much I loved it until just now!
