HOW amazing is this? I don’t mean the glorious products or packaging. It’s the fact that 2 brands, I would go as far to say ‘competing brands’, not owned by the same company… have made love and not war and joined forces for this amazing KVD x Too Faced Better Together collaboration. Something that is RARELY seen (I have never seen!) in the beauty world, and I am loving it for SO many reasons.
These are two of my favourite makeup brands at the moment : Individually I love them both like my own children (or Herman > if you don’t know he’s my darling-albeit-sour-faced-overly-spoilt-fluffy-fat-british-short-haired-cat).
The Beauty of Friendship.
This collab has stemmed from the friendship of both the founders of each of these brands ; Jerrod & Kat and these two brands combined is every makeup lovers dream. I am also revelling int the juxtaposition of the sultry and gothic-esque KVD packaging VS the pretty, glittery & pink from Too Faced. There are 3 sets from the collection : so let’s have a lil’ look at what’s good.
Better Together Ultimate Eye Collection (£57)
This is a heart-shaped palette. On the one side you have 6 eyeshadows from Kat Von D, on the other you have 6 eyeshadows from Too Faced. You also get a FULL-SIZED Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara and Kat Von D Tattoo Eyeliner in black. 100% Swoonsville right there. I love the fact that they have included best-selling products in the set as opposed to limited edition *one-offs* – they’ve thought long and hard to make this palette really wearable and desirable to us/we/them.
Better Together Cheek & Lip Makeup Bag Set (£33).
This set contains a super-cute double-sided makeup bag : One side with KVD’s cat, Piaf on the front and the other side has Jerrod’s dog, Clover on it. Within the bag there is a travel size Too Faced Candlelight Glow highligher , a travel-size Too Faced Love Flush Blusher, a travel-size KVD Liquid Lipstick in shade ‘XO’ and a travel-size KVD Studded Kiss Lipstick in shade ‘Muse’. I am super excited to try the KVD Studded lipstick as that is something I haven’t tried yet and I have heard really good things.
Better Together Bestselling Mascara & Liner Duo (£18)
This is the ultimate feline flick set : containing a deluxe size of the Better Than Sex Mascara and a deluxe size of the KVD Tattoo Eyeliner. I think this could possibly be both the brand’s bestsellers in one = WIN! Also great if you haven’t tried the brand and perhaps want to try out smaller sizes before you indulge in the full-sizes. I can safely say I have tried both and they certainly live up to the hype. The Tattoo Eyeliner is one of my holy grails.
It simply makes me smile that 2 brands come together, in such a glorious way. I think we need to see MORE of this. Lots more please.
