Kat Von D And Too Faced … Stellar Together!!

Kat Von D is praised across the Internet for her pigmented lipsticks, amazing tattoo liner and foundation that can cover even the darkest tattoos. Too Faced is celebrated for its cute chocolate-bar and sweet peach inspired shadow palettes, shimmer and glitter, and mascara that claims to be better than sex. Though the brands are wildly different, the two founders have collaborated and it could not be more exciting!. Better Together is a celebration of Kat Von D’s signature bold, edgy beauty and Too Faced’s unabashedly pink, pretty style in one must-have limited edition collection. The offerings include two standouts: the Better Together Ultimate Eye Collection and the Better Together Cheek & Lip Makeup Bag.

This collaboration has a whole lot of sentiment behind it. When the two halves of the heart are opened it reveals notes written by both Blandino and Von D. In short, the letters gush about the professional collab, but also a very personal friendship. Too Faced announced on Instagram that the collaboration is “inspired by love, true friendship and a passion for makeup, because we are BETTER TOGETHER.”  Not only a smash hit, but one of the sweetest sentiments seen in the makeup world recently, especially concerning Von D since she has been better known for her recent nasty split from ex friend and colleauge Jeffree Starr. Nice to see her and Jerrod hitting it off personally and professionally so well, resulting in this tremendous collaboration for everyone to enjoy!.

Better Together is a celebration of Kat Von D’s signature bold, edgy beauty and Too Faced’s unabashedly pink, pretty style in one must-have limited edition collection!

The half pink, half black heart-shaped better together palette with gold and silver detailing is so cute and completely different than other palettes on the market, with each shadow name having to do with love and friendship, keeping to the “Better Together” theme. Inspired by a BFF heart necklace, the palette has a magnetic center panel, so you can separate the two halves of the palette which is something unique and so cute its squeal worthy. Create a look using just one side of the palette, or mix and match shades from both sides that are different but layer beautifully…working best together to compliment each other. It also will feature deluxe full sizes of Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper (a satin black) and Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara both of which are beloved classics.

The Cheek & Lip Makeup Bag is also superexciting, and so unbelievably adorable!. It’s a double-sided bag that has fur baby sketches of Kat Von D’s Sphynx cat Piaf on one side, and Blandino’s Chihuahua Clover on the other and contains mini versions of each brand’s staple products, all in new hues (except for the best sellerToo Faced Candlelight Glow Highlighting Powder in Rosy Glow). The new products include Too Faced Love Flush Blush in So Happy Together, a Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in XO, and a Studded Kiss Lipstick in Muse which will be selling for 35$US/47$Cdn.

If all this wasn’t exciting enough, Kat has hinted at future collaborations in a recent interview. Hopefully this truly will be the beginning of a long and beautiful friendship!

“On the binding of the palette it says ‘Volume 1,’ and that’s basically saying that if people respond and love it, why the hell not make a Volume 2. They’re magnetized, so you can just take the Too Faced side or the KVD side and use it by itself or together. But if there are different volumes, it’ll be so nice to mix and match. I have a feeling there are going to be a lot more to come in the future.”  – Kat

Be sure to save some of your Christmas money to treat yourself to this guilt free pleasure that is paraben free, preservative free, talc free, cruelty free and vegan. Proving you can truly have your cake (or turkey..or stuffing…or chocolate…) and eat it too! Without the calories!.
