The palette features 11 of shades from the Chocolate Bar palettes transformed in all matte finishes.

Retailing for $26, the palette is available for purchase wherever TooFaced is sold.


Too Faced White Chocolate Chip Palette

This is the lighter, more shimmery counterpart to the Matte Chocolate Chip Bar. The palette features 11 shades, featuring five shimmers and six matte shades. The White Chocolate Chip Palette is currently available for $26, exclusively on  



TooFaced Sweet Peach Collection

TooFaced is not only relaunching their Sweet Peach Eyeshadow palette, but also launching an entirely new collection. The Sweet Peach Collection will include the Sweet Peach Eyeshadow palette, the Sweet Peach Glow Highlighting palette, the Sweet Peach Creamy Peach Oil Lip Gloss and the Papa Don’t Peach blushes. The lip oil comes in eight shades: Peach Fuzz, Papa Don’t Peach, Peach-sicle, Pure Peach, Peach Please!, Poppin’ Peach, Peach Tease and Tickle Me Peach. Fans of the brand are extremely excited to see the collection launch, especially after the popularity of the original Sweet Peach eyeshadow. 



New Maybelline Products

Any drugstore beauty lover knows that Maybelline has been stepping their game up recently, and their 2017 launches show how much they’ve been working on building their reputation for quality and affordable cosmetics. Baby Lips Color Balm Crayon, $7, is a new spin on Maybelline’s classic Baby Lips Lip Balm. The new lip crayon’s formula is more pigmented than the OG Baby Lips but doesn’t sit heavily on the lips. It’s great for lip color or a cheek flush and comes in eight shades: Toasted Taupe, Blush Burst, Strawberry Pop, Creamy Coral, Refreshing Red, Sassy Scarlett, Pink Smooch, and Playful Purple.

The FaceStudio Master Strobing Liquid Illuminating Highlighters, $10, will come in three shades; iridescent, champagne, and gold- great options for all skin tones.

The Maybelline Dream Cushion, $16, is a full-coverage foundation that comes in a travel-friendly compact that is perfect for midday touch-ups. Whilst this may seem a bit pricey for Maybelline, it is a cheaper alternative to many cushion foundations on the market and is an affordable way to try the cushion foundation trend.

The new Face Studio Master Camo Color Correcting Kit, $13, is an extremely affordable way to learn how to color correc. The palette comes in three different shades based on skin tone, unlike many brand’s color correcting palettes. Another unique feature of the palette is that it also includes a pearlescent highlight shade.



Molly Cosmetics’ Silisponge

Molly Cosmetics new makeup sponge could be the next BeautyBlender. It may look a bit strange, but the new sponge has been garnering lots of attention. It’s a piece of silicone (resembles a bra insert or chicken cutlet) that doesn’t absorb your makeup the same way sponge’s are known to. The Silisponge actually won’t absorb any of your foundation, and lasts far longer than traditional sponges or BeautyBlenders. It can be cleaned with regular handsoap when dirty, and won’t crack the way sponges often do. It’s great for applying foundation or cream products.


? S I L I S P O N G E ?Hey everyone! Thank you for your patience!!! Literally just delivered to us by courier. Let us introduce to you our latest product – S I L I S P O N G E!!! (We lol when we decided to use this name!!! ???). NOW AVAILABLE in our webstore! Let us make a video in a little bit! . Wasting products is history now cos, of course, it doesn’t soak in a thing! Tried it, and the foundation needed is literally just half the amount compared to directly using brush or sponge. Spreading product with it will take some getting used to, final blending can always be finished with oval brush or usual sponge (for example beautyblender), that means washing the oval brush or the sponge will be minimized and they will last a whole lot longer. It is ideal for people who don’t like messy fingers during makeup. AND I bet you can imagine cleaning THIS APPLICATOR will literally take no more effort than rubbing it with a little soap and rinsing with some luke warm water. If you are a professional makeup artist, can you imagine how exciting it is that you can use it on one client/model, clean it with a makeup remover and sanitizing spray, and then you can use it on another client/model immediately just like that? Throwing away disposable sponge can totally be minimized!!!! This picture was taken AFTER i used it and wiped it twice on the back of my hand, it is close to absolutely no trace of product left on it! . ?FREE WORLDWIDE SHIPPING? . #siliconesponge #clearsponge . #mollycosmetics #matteliquidlipstick #liquidmattelipstick #trendmood #makeupsponge #wakeupandmakeup #makeupaddict #mua #makeup #makeupartist #vegasnay #???? #????? #?? #?????? #??? #???? #??????? #trending #beautytrend #beautyblender
