Last week, I attended a BEACH PARTY… well, sort of! Too Faced Cosmetics held a beach-themed party at a rooftop apartment in Manhattan to unveil a few new additions to their amazing bronzer line: Bronzed & Poreless, Endless Summer 16 Hour Bronzer, Sweetheart Beads Radiant Face Powder, 2013 Summer Sexy Shadow Collection and Sweet Sun Shines Lip Glosses!

Guests had their makeup done, along with learning some summer beauty tips and having their hair braided at a separate station. Along with the two new bronzer additions, Too Faced changed the look of their packaging as well: “new look, same formula.”
Why bronze and “fake your bake?” Prevent the deadliest form of skin cancer: melanoma! 65% of melanoma is attributed by UV exposure from direct sunlight or artificial sources like tanning beds. The use of tanning beds before the age of thirty-five increases the risk of developing melanoma by 75%.
When Too Faced Founder and Creative Director Jerrod Blandino’s sister was diagnosed with Stage 4 melanoma, he set out on a mission to create the most naturally and beautiful bronzers possible: to allow all women to get a gorgeous, golden tan SAFELY.
Eleven years later, Blandino’s sister is thriving and healthy — and Too Faced has built the biggest bronzer assortment in the biz! Too Faced has donated almost $100,000 to the Melanoma Research Foundation to date.
*NEW* Endless Summer 16-hour Long-Wear Bronzer ($30.00): FOR ALL SKINTONES. Get that “lit-from-within” bronzed glow, 16-hours straight! The exclusive Double Bond formula and buildable bronzing pigments can be dusted all-over. 100% cruelty-free product.
*NEW* Bronzed & Poreless Pore Perfecting Bronzer ($30.00): ALL SKINTONES – A matte bronze finish; pore-perfecting bronzer, infused with the same pore-banishing, skin-smoothing properties of Primed & Poreless, creates radiant looking skin for an all-over warmth. It minimizes the appearance of pores, fine lines and imperfections. Infused with mulberry extract for a brightening effect. Paraben-, fragrance- and oil-free.
*NEW* Sweetheart Beads Radiant Glow Face Powder ($32.00): For a romantic finish inspired by nature’s most flattering pinks and golden-light at dusk, these multi-colored heart pearls blend to impart a lit-from-within radiance.
Buildable color and a hint of shimmer, the heart beads’ colors work together to create the perfect combination of color, coverage and glow for healthy radiance. 100% cruelty-free product.
Pink Leopard Blushing Bronzer ($30.00): ALL SKINTONES – A blushing bronzer that combines gorgeous shades of golden bronze, gilded pinks and natural fawns. Sexy, brightening, medium-to-deep jungle glow for healthy cheeks year-round!
Snow Bunny Luminous Bronzer ($30.00): FAIR TO MEDIUM SKINTONES – Get the perfect winter glow without “leaving the lodge.” Combines four shades to illuminate, brighten, and correct imperfections (banishing redness). Paraben-free.
Sun Bunny Natural Bronzer ($30.00): ALL SKIN TONES — The original Too Faced Bronzer that launched a million tans. The answer to getting a natural glow without the orange drama. Slight pink undertones in a dual-shade palette mimics a flush tan. Combines a rich golden and a classic bronze with a touch of pink. Vegan-friendly and paraben-free.
Beach Bunny Custom-Blend Bronzer ($30.00): ALL SKINTONES – Deep illuminating bronzer with a combination of four sun-kissed bronzers. Multi-use. Paraben-free.
Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer ($30.00) MEDIUM TO DEEP SKINTONES – A matte bronzer that is CHOCOLATE SCENTED (my fave!). This bronzer is delicious! Shimmer-free, perfect for contouring and creating an all-over deep tan using real rich cocoa powder. Also available in a lighter version Milk Chocolate Soleil! Vegan-friendly and paraben-free.
*NEW* Summer Eye 2013 Summer Sexy Shadow Collection ($36.00) — A hand-picked collection of nine exclusive resort inspired eyeshadows that will be your temptation to take a vacation. Like all Too Faced palettes, they have included a show-and-tell centerfold called a Glamour Guide to give you instructions and a start on creating three Summer Eye Looks: Day, Classic and Fashion.
Created with high concentrations of color, so what you see is what you get — pigment-rich shades with a brilliant finish. New shades: Seashell, Peach Fuzz, Sunbeam, Plumeria, Coral Crush, Mermaid, Cocoa Beach, Chocolate Sun and Toasted Coconut. 100% cruelty-free product.
*NEW* Sweet Sun Shines Lip Gloss ($16.00 each) Exclusive formula prevents water loss for intense hydration. My lips LOVED these three juicy shades: Mocha Freeze (bronze), Papaya Slushie (coral) and Watermelon Ice (pink). Truly moisturizing, lightweight glosses with gorgeous shimmer and high-impact pops of color. Lightweight and non-sticky gel formula.
Retractable Bronze-buki Brush ($34.00): Specifically engineered to apply bronzers in an airbrushed, layered fashion. Long, crimped bristles pick up the ideal amount of bronzer, while the shorter bristles buff in color for an even glow. The dense brush base allows you to expertly blend for a guaranteed, natural finish. The retractable, sleek and stylish brush travels for on-the-go touch-ups. It comes with a cover that protects your purse and makeup bags from mess.
Too Faced’s one-of-a-kind Teddy Bear Hair is an exclusive, super-soft and luxurious fiber that grabs and blends pigments for a professional looking application without any of the animal cruelty associated with natural hair brushes. Synthetic hair bristles are long-lasting, easy-to-clean and minimize the spread of bacteria.
