Too Faced The Bronzed & The Beautiful

I was fortunate to attend Too Faced Event in March, as well as, receive the whole summer collection. This is the second item from the collection that I am reviewing. The first review was on the Too Faced Full Bloom Cheek & Lip Creme Color. Now for the review...
Product Review: Too Faced the Bronzed & the Beautiful

Where can you purchase this: stores that sell Too Faced and online at TooFaced.com

Made in USA

Description on the back: Join the bronzing revolution and get your 'glow' on with Too Faced's collection of best-selling bronzers! A couture collection containing Sun Bunny - the cult favorite classic bronze, two shades of Snow Bunny - our skin perfecting winter bronzer, Chocolate Soleil - a matte bronzer as well as the exclusive, Powered Sun - an illuminating highlighter. To achieve a flawless finish, we've included deluxe size of our Primed & Poreless SPF 20 Bronze Tint Skin Smoothing Face Primer. You don't have to jet off to the French Riviera to get that perfect tan; just use the enclosed "how-to" cards to achieve your perfect bronze!
Ingredients:
My thoughts: When I first saw this, I thought how cool to have a whole kit just to bronze/contour the face. I also thought it was perfect timing since I hit pan on my NYX Blush in Taupe which I use for contouring. I was planning on repurchasing the NYX Blush in Taupe, but I didn't have to since I got this kit.
Before I talk about the kit, isn't the packaging so cute!?!? I'm really digging pink and brown theme. I also love the old fashion picture of the model and the beach. It reminds me of the classical movies from the '60's. Yes, I love old fashioned movies. :P You pull the brown ribbon on the front of the palette to open the top.
Here's a closer look at the kit. I will not talk about the Primed & Poreless spf 20 with Bronze Tint, primer, in this review since I got a full size one. I will review that separately in it's own post. I gave this sample away to a friend. The four colors from this kit from top left, bottom left, top right, and bottom right are...

* Chocolate Soleil = matte bronze
* Powdered Sun = gold
* Sun Bunny = classic bronze
* Snow Bunny = mocha/pink

Here's the swatch of the kit from top left, bottom left, the two colors separately from top right (mixed on top), and the last two colors separately from the bottom right (mixed on top). You probably cannot see the farthest right but it is there. It's just very shimmery.

It also came with three bronzing lesson cards.
* Classic Bronze:
* Glamour Bronze:
* Lose 10 lbs in 10 Seconds!:

Here's how the bronzer looks on me.
I used Chocolate Soleil to contour my cheeks to make me look like I have cheekbones. I have such flat face that bronzers help on me. By the way, I'm not wearing any blush. I took this before putting blush on. Once I mix the blush with the bronzer, it'll look more natural. Out of the whole kit, I use Chocolate Soleil the most. I tend to like the matte over the shimmery bronzers. I'll probably use the others for blush since they're shimmery for the summer.

The staying power on the Chocolate Soleil is pretty good. It lasts all day on me. Let me tell you Chocolate Soleil smells divine!!! Whenever I open the box, I smell hot cocoa. It's suppose to smell like chocolate but to me it's more hot cocoa. It's really fun opening the kit then a whoosh of hot cocoa smell. :)

Pros:
* Gorgeous packaging; pink and brown theme.
* A kit with all the bronzers in one place.
* Comes with lesson cards.
* Versatile palette; comes in matte, shimmer, and a highlighter.
* Fun palette to try the different bronzers.
* Chocolate Soleil smells like hot cocoa.
* Long lasting.

Cons:
* Cardboard packaging; mine already had a dent on the side.

Would I repurchase: No, because I only used Chocolate Soleil. Probably would just buy that by itself.

i agree that toofaced has nice packaging! my sister initially thought that toofaced was a brand for teens and i told her its not just targeted to teens but also with those teen-minded girlies! hahaha she said that the packaging was too "young" and somewhat cheap looking because of the cardboard packaging with the sets. but i told her some urban decay sets also come in that packaging and she reconsidered. haha

I'm seriously contemplating getting this as I'm addicted to bronzers but I hate Too Faced bulky packagings, and I'd like Leopar Love too.... I don't know what to do LOL

Their packaging is always pretty and girly but I agree that the packaging material is a con. But their colors look great on your skin when you showed the swatch on your skin. This was fun -_0
