Too Faced | Teddy Bare Collection Review And Swatches

Not Sponsored: If there's one thing about Too Faced Cosmetics, they always come out with the cutest packaging. It suckers me in all most of the time. Their Teddy Bare Collection, came out earlier this year for Spring/Summer 2021. I loved stuffed teddy bears as a child. I had an assortment of both sizes and colors. So, this collection appealed to my inner youth. The packaging displays the cutest brown bear with round eyes, heart-shaped nose and Too Faced logo on his round belly. And I love the color combination of the packaging ... brown and gold. To me, it looks chocolate-y! I'm always thinking about food. LOL The lip injection has the cutest teddy bears scattered on the wand. As usual with Too Faced, the packaging gets an A+. So what are my thoughts on the makeup itself? I purchased all three (3) items from the collection: Teddy Bare Bare It All Eye Shadow Palette (also here), Teddy Bare Bare It All Bronzer (also here) and Lip Injection Extreme Lip Plumping Gloss in Bee Sting (also here). Below are my thoughts on each one.

  The Too Faced Teddy Bare Collection is Bittersweet

Too Faced | Teddy Bare Bare It All Eye Shadow Palette

The Too Faced Teddy Bare, Bare It All Eye Shadow Palette contains 14 shades of eye shadows. The names are really cute. Top Row: The Snuggle Is Real, Fur Real, Teddy Bear, Pot of Honey, Embareassed, Lace Teddy, Boop. Bottom Row: Bare It All, Mama Bear, Gild A Bare, Fuzzy Wuzzy, Press Paws, Stuffed, Sharing Is Caring. The shades are fairly neutral in scheme. You have an assortment of beiges, browns, golds, bronzes and such. As you can see below, all of the colors swatched really well on the back of my hand. There were no problems there. My only gripe were the metallic shades. They're very "chunky". When applying them to my eyes, there was a lot of fallout that I had to wipe away. For the look below, I used The Snuggle Is Real from lid to brow. I then used Teddy Bear from lid to crease. In my crease, I applied Mama Bear. I lined my eyes with Boop. I love using eye shadows as eye liner. I then pressed Fur Real on my eye lids and inner corner of my eyes. I used Sharing Is Caring (teddy bear face) as a BLUSH. Overall, I felt everything looked ok. I wasn't jumping up and down excited, like I was when I used my Natasha Denona Biba Eye Shadow Palette (which to me creates a softer neutral look). I love that palette! I haven't purchased Too Faced makeup in years (since 2019) and honestly, I think I'm growing out of the brand. That can happen! It's a FUN brand, but over the past several years I've bought it more for the packaging than the makeup.

Too Faced | Teddy Bare Bare It All Bronzer

I have quite the Too Faced Bronzer Collection (here, here, here, here, here). Some I LOVE and others I don't. So what about Teddy Bare, Bare It All Bronzer? Well, if you look at the swatch of it on my wrist, it's a shimmery bronze and gold. To me, it seems more like a HIGHLIGHTER. I don't want anything shimmery all over my face. So I applied it as a HIGHLIGHTER to the bridge of my nose, atop my cheeks and cupids bow. It's a soft shimmer. Again, OK but nothing where you have to HAVE IT. You probably have something similar in your makeup collection. I just love the packaging.

Too Faced | Lip Injection Extreme Lip Plumping Gloss Bee Sting

The first time I tried Too Faced's Lip Injection, I promised NEVER to purchase it again. It stung my lips so badly. No adverse reaction, but I didn't like the way it made my lips feel. Very unpleasant. Well again, I fell for the cute teddy bears. Well Too Faced has toned the stinging part down. Its not as intense. It does plump up your lips and has a wonderful candy scent, but I was disappointed that this gloss didn't give off more color (brown/bronze). It's very CLEAR. I will say, it doesn't feel sticky. It feels very good on the lips and is moisturizing. I just wished it had more "color" (brown, bronze etc) to accent the eye look. I would use a different kind of lip gloss to accentuate this eye look.

So you guys, those are my honest thoughts regarding the Too Faced Teddy Bare Collection. 

I hope this review helps you in your decision-making.
