Too Faced – Pretty Little Planner

Hello everyone,

As you can see in my last post I´m back!!! I´m back to the blog and with some YouTube videos, so please if you can check that out and leave me some comments, your YouTube channel and of course please click the like button.

I have a few posts ideas and hopefully the ideas keep coming 🙂 and today I´m sharing swatches from the Holiday gift set 2017 from Too Faced.



I talked about it on my shopping haul video and like I promised I´m giving you my first impressions and swatches.

I bought mine in Debenhams Ireland and cost me 36.90€ on a sale event ( was 41€).

It´s a lovely wallet with a skinny planner but very cute, with a sheet with stickers to add to the planner, a mini Better Than Sex mascara and of course a palette with matte & shimmers eye shadows.



My first impressions are they are quite good… a few misses in my opinion and of course I don’t understand much of makeup, but this is my personal opinion.




Lighter shades are a little patchy but still very good – (Secret Santa is a little bit patchy and less pigmented).

They feel smooth and blending well, but I need to test on my eyeballs 🙂

Here are the swatches 🙂


          1- Good Girl / 2- Rise & Shine / 3- Why Not?

 4- White Christmas/ 5-Secret Santa/ 6- Silent Night/  7- Werkshop



 8- Coffee First/ 9- Snooze U Lose/ 10-God As Gold/ 11- Dollhouse/

12- Wrap It Up/ 13- Break The Ice/ 14- Elfie Selfie/ 15- Booville


The mini mascara…. I´m never impressed with this mini ones, I´m not sure if its because its the travel size.. but they don’t wow me at all. I like better others budget friendly  mascaras than this one, but this is my honest opinion.

Finally the mini planner… it´s cute, it´s thin and perfect for our bags. I never used planners before last year and ohhhhh my God…. game changer!!! So much easy to keep my records( I always think I will remember things and then it´s a no, no)

Overall I really like this gift set… more than the other that I bought last year.

Thank you so much for stopping by,

I´m back with news!!!! The Barbrites!!!

FotoJet8 (2)

Life can be really busy and I was a fool thinking I was able to do everything, everyday, all the time. But I failed!!! Badly!!!

Many times I was sitting down with my laptop to write here ( putting all my ideas in order) sharing things that I like… but tiredness got the better of me.

However, all this time I was trying to organize myself…my family life, my job, to make sure I was able to spend time creating new things.

Change a few things that no longer made me and my family  happy and so far it´s working ok. We have room for improvements but we will get there.

I´m not a writer ( I suck writing in English), but it will not stop me.

So….. I´m back with some posts and a YOUTUBE channel.

It´s a family YouTube channel….nothing fancy!!! It´s casual… It´s for sharing things with friends and if someone wants to join in… You are more than welcome.

We are the Barbrites!!!!!

Real life, cooking our dishes, our travels, shopping and many more. We are building up our content and learning!!! So much learning!! 🙂

Please keep in mind I´m not young, I´m not fancy, I´m really new on this things and this is real life!!!

I will try to link some posts here with our channel and hopefully I improve my editing, talking to a camera ( it´s so weird).

If you can… pop there, leave me some emoji’s ( you pick). Share tips and give advices… it´s much appreciated.

Thank you for stopping by,

Too Faced Merry Macarons- Swatch

Hello all…

When I was looking for Christmas gift sets in the make-up area  I found the new collection of the Too Faced and I was so excited … the colours of the palettes were beautiful.

I started looking for this particular palette, because had the colours that I liked, since they were more neutral and I could use more often.

It was so difficult to have access to this palette … I only could find it in Debenhams and was out of stock … for 3 weeks I went to the website everyday to see if was in stock already.

One of the days and without any hope I went to the website and there was in low Stock…. I did not even think twice … I bought it !!!! Ohh happy day 🙂


When I got the order and opened the package … ohhhhh my !!! They were beautiful colours and had a mini  Better Then Sex mascara that I was eager to experiment and  know why  all the buzz over the internet.



For now, I have not tested, just made a swatch to show you how beautiful they are and my  first opinion is that they are soft, not chalky and I am willing to test in my eye balls.


Since I’m not an expert in makeup, I hope they are easy to apply and blend well because I´m   always  in a hurry. ( mom thing I belive)

I hope you like the swatch and share with me your opinions.
Thank you for stopping by..
