With Valentines Day around the corner, everything pink and heart shaped seems to be creeping out of the woodwork and asking you to buy it. Regardless of the date or social occasion, there are some products that are an absolute lust-have, and these super cute Sweetheart Beads from Too Faced Cosmetics are certainly that. Taking inspiration from the multi-tonal bronzing beads that were the hight of fashion about ten years ago, the heart-shaped beads come packed in four different shades to ensure an ultra natural and delicate result. There’s a tendency to overdo the bronzer when you’re only applying one block colour, but these beads ensure you get an equal amount of pink, gold, peach and bronze to provide a healthy glow.
As our complexion is never one consistent colour, these
beads provide a hint of shimmer and a dash of radiance by catching the
light. All four shades work together to create a buildable and wearable
result that’s suitable for all complexions. Unlike a lot of traditional bronzing beads which are super small and hard to work with, these hearts are chunky enough for your brush to pick up the perfect amount of powder and really work into the skin. They’re soft without being crumbly, while the texture is great for just dabbing into cheekbones with a kabuki brush. For a super natural radiant glow, apply to the tops of cheeks in a diagonal direction, as well as to the nose bridge and top of the lip; this is where the light would naturally hit our faces, ensuring a great finish that looks like you’ve just been on a detox.
Not only are the beads delicious, but the packaging reminds me of a time gone by; this little traditional power box wouldn’t be out of place on a dressing table in Downton Abbey. Although the packaging isn’t everything, some products were meant to be placed on display and lusted over. These would not only make the perfect payday pick-me-up, but work as a Valentines Day gift too – just make sure you give the guy in your life a little nudge and leave this web page open long enough for him to notice! Do you love these as much as I do?
The Sweetheart Beads are available online priced £26.00.
