Beauty | Too Faced Cocoa Contour & Highlighting Kit

 I am such a huge fan of Too Faced they have easily become a favourite of mine in the last year or so. 
Their packaging is just so gorgeous and pretty and the products themselves are just as amazing!
I decided I wanted a decent quality contour kit I had a couple of high street ones and they were okay but seemed to cake or not last very long which made my 'on the go' makeup bag get pretty bulky.
I used a high street contour palette that was £19 pound and I only used 1-2 colours out of the 8 colours it had in the palette and it didn't have a mirror either which was kind of annoying.
so I was willing to pay a bit more for a palette that is smaller, that has a mirror and that I can use the whole palette - so no waste!


I do love a little contour but I don't want something that is super pigmented but I also don't want to have to use half the product for it to show up, this product is kind of in between, This is a light to medium shade, it is easily buildable and so easy to blend I literally use one swipe and its enough.
The highlighter is beautiful it's hard to explain, at first I thought it was going to look like a glitter ball, it looks like it has larger glitter particles compared to other highlighters that I've used but it seems to leave less of a 'trail' so you don't get that iridescent line across your cheeks or nose most of us try to avoid.

I attempted to swatch this palette so you had a better idea of what it looks like, I definitely need to invest in a lens the highlight is so so subtle but looks beautiful on the cheeks and the medium cocoa is the perfect shadow shade with its ashier tone and the water tone in the dark cocoa you can use for a more bronzed or sun kissed look. The powders themselves are honestly so so soft when I was watching them I used my finger and they feel like velvet which probably helps them to blend so well, they're not drying whatsoever

I love using this palette and I am so happy I finally have one that ticks all the boxes! Don't forget you can follow any of my social media platforms by clicking on the social media icons on the left side of the page :)
