Too Faced Boss Lady Agenda 2018

I’ve been wanting to write about the Too Faced Boss Lady Agenda 2018/eye shadow palette for a while now but I’ve had so many other posts in front of this one! Anyhow, the time has come, better late than never.

I received this palette as a gift, from my lovely partner. I had seen it before but I just didn’t feel it, it looked nice but the colours of the palette are not what I would use everyday. However, after getting the opportunity to play around with it I am impressed and very glad to have gotten it.

This Girl Boss agenda comes in really cute outer packaging. At the pack of the outer packaging you can also preview the colours of the eye shadow palette and the rest of the contents.

 

 

Inside the pack you will find:

(1) An outer wallet/book type cover

(2) An eye shadow palette

(3) A travel size Better than Sex Mascara

(4) A travel size Liquid Melted Matte Lipstick in Colour Sell Out

(5) The cutest 2018 diary ever

 

You really do get a fair bit for your money. It retails for approximately £41 which is what you would normally pay for just a branded eye shadow palette and nothing else! However here you don’t only get the palette, but you also get all of the things mentioned above. It is very good value for money for sure, almost an absolute steal. The only problem is, it is Sephora or Too Faced online exclusive, or at least it used to be. I’ve now seen it on other places like Amazon but for ridiculous prices (£71+). I would highly recommend you only buy from Too Faced or Sephora directly as there are a lot of Too Faced fakes out there. It is also limited edition so you better hurry!

All and all I think this is an amazing little bundle of high quality, value and practicality. Not to mention that the cuteness factor is as always Too Faced.

Let’s have a look at the items contained in more detail.

 

(1) An outer wallet/book type cover

The outer wallet/book zip cover is baby pink and says “Don’t let today be a waste of makeup” in gold writing. As playful as this quote might be, it is true and I love it. Make up can sometimes even be what lifts people up, what makes you feel a little better on those days where you feel bad. Doing your make up might even be your me time or a ritual of self-love and care. Whatever makeup might mean to you, pick yourself up and “Don’t let today be a waste of makeup”. Love it! It’s now one of my favourite quotes.

The actual wallet has a fake leather type feeling but it is of very good quality. It opens up with a zipper and inside it has a tiny heart shaped mirror. It also has a little pocket and elastic holder for you pens or makeup as well as two sections where you can put your diary through, your palette or even other paperwork.

I think its really cute, good quality and I love that it has a mirror. It’s a small one but cute and useful nevertheless. I’m not sure where I’m going to use this at, but rest assured that I will find a time for it.

At the back of the case it says “Best Year Ever 2018”. I don’t know if 2018 will be the best year ever but the positivity is great. It definitely makes me smile. It’s the little things sometimes…

 

(2) An eye shadow palette

Ok, so the eye shadow palette was the reason I didn’t buy this agenda for myself. I just didn’t feel that I would get as much usage out of the colours as other more natural palettes. Boy was I wrong. I honestly feel incredibly glad that this has found its way to me, as this is bar non the most pigmented Too Faced eye shadow palette I’ve ever tried. And I’ve tried them all (except the chocolate gold).

If you have been previously disappointed about the softness of the Too Faced shadows, check this one out. It’s just so pigmented and the shimmer shadows are just so, so beautiful. The swatches below speak for themselves. I’ve used my fingers and swatched over the colours twice. Nothing fancy, no setting sprays, no brushes, no clever image filters, just amazing eye shadows.

The palette has 24 eye shadow colours, 11 of which are matte and the rest 13 are shimmer or glitter type shadows. There are mainly 3 options for highlighting the brow bone, which is actually more than most palettes, quite a few options for the main lid colour and quite a few darker colours for creating shadows. It is a full stand alone palette that also contains a highlight, blush and contour/bronzer. What more can you want really?

The actual palette comes in a carboard type, pink book which is of very good quality. It has minimal design, just a golden heart saying “Best Year Ever 2018” but it actually suits it. Inside the palette there is a golden heart with the “Too Faced” writing. I just wish this palette contained a mirror! The giant size of it would go so nicely with a giant mirror. That is honestly, the only thing wrong with the entire set.

The eye shadows do not smell of anything and are made of typical ingredients. They last all day long and do not crease (I always use an eye shadow primer though).

Some of the colours might look similar, see picture below, however, they are all different in their own way. Some are slightly softer or slightly more shimmery and although it would have been nicer if they were all completely unique colours, the slight variations are perfect for tuning the look you want to create.

Maybe not the most practical or wearable colours but definitely the most pigmented Too Faced eye shadow palette ever. Full stop.

 

(3) A travel size Better than Sex Mascara

While I find the name of this mascara a little cheeky, I do like that it stands out and everyone immediately knows which mascara you are talking about. I also find it a little funny that it had to be renamed in certain countries, I imagine due to cultural differences, to Better than Love Mascara. Well ladies, it might be better than sex but it ain’t better than love!

Nevertheless, it is pretty good and is actually my number 2 favourite mascara to date.

It is a black mascara and comes with a very thick, hour glass shaped wand. It smells like any other mascara and it truly does give you amazingly huge, thin but long, eye lashes. It lasts all day, your eye lashes will be curled up, but the length of the eyelashes tends to slowly diminish with time. You can always re-apply if needed.

It is also smudge proof but not so much water proof. It apparently contains collagen, peptides and a firm-forming polymer. If it also contained something a little more “cosmeceutical” like vitamins etc and was fully waterproof, I would have given it a 10.

This is a travel size mascara but still very useful and lasts for 1-2 months depending on usage. The full size one retails for £17 and it is totally worth it. This is my go to, natural, every day, work or casual mascara.

 

(4) A travel size Liquid Melted Matte Lipstick in Colour Sell Out

I’m not a fan of liquid lipsticks. I personally think that they haven’t reached their full potential yet and there is still a lot to be improved in the formulations. On top of that, I have dry lips and so I prefer something that doesn’t dry.

Nevertheless, if I was going to wear a liquid lipstick it would definitely be one of the Too Faced Melted Matte Lipstick range. They are top notch, high quality lipsticks that last for a while. I’ve done a full detailed review and ingredient analysis of these in two other posts so I will keep this one short.

In case you missed them:

Part I: Too Faced Melted Liquid Lipsticks – Swatches and Reviews. A chemist’s view on why some colours work better than others.

Part II: Chemical X-ray – Too Faced Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick Colour Queen B – What is inside and what does it do?

This lippy is called Sell out and it is a soft nude, more towards brown than pink or red, type colour. During the swatch, I didn’t really like the colour so much as to me it looks like it has a brown-orange off hint to it, but it actually looks nicer on the lips.

As I mentioned in my Part I post, some of these lipsticks are better quality than others. This one falls in the medium category. It is not the worst Too Faced Melted Matter Lipstick but it is not the best either. It doesn’t have a specific scent, just the typical liquid lipstick smell.

Nevertheless, it is a great lipstick and an amazing addition to this bundle. I love that it is a small full size one as well, so you can take it with you everywhere or even put it inside the wallet/case!

 

(5) The cutest 2018 diary ever

I keep my diaries online these days but this is a great example of what we are missing when we ditch the traditional paper diaries. This cute little diary/agenda also has the “Don’t let today be a waste of makeup” quote on it in gold writing. It truly puts a smile on my face every time I pick it up.

The first page of the diary says “Pretty pink thoughts by:” and it asks you to write your name in a cute little heart. The diary comes with two pages of cute stickers which admittedly, I though they were a bit childish at first. Then I started placing them around all over the year, on days that made sense to me, and I quickly came to the conclusion that the two pages were not enough. The stickers add so much dimension, playfulness and fun child play to this agenda and I wanted more!

The agenda also has some other practical and cute sections. There is a “Totally inspired by…” section where you can list all the things/looks etc that inspire you. There is a “#Goals”, “Reasons to party” for each month, “Birthdays”, “To do lists” and “Notes” Section. The last two come up every month so you can literally fill them up with any to do or notes of that month.

Before each month there is a tutorial of how to achieve a certain look that matches the month while using the eye shadow palette. Each month also has it’s own quote with January being “Drink champagne with pizza”, February “All you need is love and makeup” etc.

Each month is covered over a two-page overview with each day being represented by a square. Some days have some fun and cute added things to them like for example January 25th is “ National Opposite day”, January 28th is “Fun at work day” etc. It just gives you something silly or funny to do every now and again and it can be a lot of fun. If you have or buy this agenda, I challenge you to do them all! I sadly missed whipped cream day but I am committed in doing all the rest!

At the end of the agenda there are a few extra sections: “Best looks of the year”, a “Girls night out ideas”, “Friends to call”, “People to follow” and 34 empty pages for you to write whatever you want.

Don’t forget to follow bondsofbeauty, all info at the end of this page 😉

It is a great agenda that comes with a lot of love and fun and I absolutely love it. I don’t use it for work or my blog or serious things, for me it is a fun agenda for the moments that made me happy that day but of course you can use it in any way you like. I love it.

Overall, I thought this bundle was an absolute steal. It is beyond value for money and the quality of all items contained is very high. I will be using all of the items throughout the year and I can honestly say I don’t have any favourites. They are all great items in their own departments and I am very happy to have gotten this.
