Remember how I wrote about my obsession with the French Revolution in “Vive Le Lancome Revolution” about Lancome’s royally chic Declaring Indigo collection? Well, you can imagine my delight when I discovered that Too Faced’s holiday collection is inspired by Marie Antoinette – mon dieu! Too Faced, experts at making me fawn over their sexy fun and retro chic collections that make my heart go pitter-patter when I enter Sephora, have unveiled four limited-edition kits filled with “everything a glamour queen needs to overthrow an old beauty routine.”
The punk rock by way of boudoir packaging is reminiscent of Sofia Coppola’s film Marie Antoinette and the eyeshadow and lipgloss shades aren’t far off from the film’s sugary colours of pink frosting, turquoise, dusty rose, mint green and lemon cream yellow.
There’s the French & Fabulous palette, travel-size Glamour To Go III kit and Queen For A Day makeup bag filled with popular and exclusive products. The piece de resistance is the Glamour Revolution makeup book that contains nine eyeshadows, three lipglosses, bronzer, blush and an eyeshadow primer along with cards on how to create different looks. So run out, pick up one of these kits and have fun — just don’t lose your head in the process.
