Too Faced Passport to Bronze Set Review and Swatches

I picked up the Too Faced Passport to Bronze Set a little while ago, and after having a play around with the different bronzers included in the set, I thought I’d share my thoughts on this cute travel-sized collection.

The compacts in this set are made of cheap plastic, and are very light weight. Inside you get 2.5 grams of product, and no mirror. The pan size is considerably bigger than a single eyeshadow pan, or about the size of a fifty cent Australian coin.

Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil

I own the full size of this bronzer, and it’s my all time favourite/most used bronzer. I recommend this for those with fair or light skin, as it isn’t very dark, and can be built up on the skin.

Too Faced Chocolate Soleil

This is described as being a medium/deep matte bronzer, and while I was concerned it would be too dark for my skintone, I found it worked well with a light hand. I’ll use this in summer since it is a little deeper than what I’d usually go for.

Too Faced Sun Bunny

This bronzer reminds of Sweet Tea from Too Faced with it’s half-half design. This bronzer is shimmery, and can come across a little orange-y if built up too much. I still prefer my Sweet Tea bronzer over this one, but it’s a great size for travelling.

Price break-down

The set retails for $35 AUD on the Catch website, and you receive three compacts with 2.5 grams of bronzer in each, as well as a mini flatbuki brush. A Too Faced bronzer costs $44 AUD, and contains 10 grams of product. When factoring the cost of the bronzers alone, you are paying $4.60 per gram in the set, and $4.40 per gram when buying a full sized bronzer. So while you are paying slightly more for the bronzers in a set, you are getting three different types, as well as a bonus brush.

With all of the above being considered, I think this is a great set to pick up if you want to try a few different bronzers from Too Faced, and the quality is the same as their full sized bronzers.

What is your favourite Too Faced bronzer? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!

This is the last lip gloss to join my stash for a while, and the sixth from Anastasia Beverly Hills. Like Moon Jelly and Toffee, I purchased Parfait during the Sephora 50% off sales.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Moonchild Glow Kit Review

I’ve had my eyes on this highlighting palette for months now (I know, very late to the party), but the $72 AUD price tag stopped me from purchasing it sooner. However, when Sephora had their 50% off sale and this item was included in the line up, all bets were off. I purchased the Anastasia Beverly Hills Moonchild Glow Kit for $36, and couldn’t be happier with the variety of pastel colours included in the palette!

Real Techniques Miracle Diamond Sponge v.s. Beauty Blender

After a year of using the Beauty Blender (thinking it was the greatest thing since sliced bread), and forking out $30 (AUD) every three months, it was time to try a new foundation sponge. Enter the Real Techniques Miracle Diamond Sponge, which I got on sale for $15 ($25 RRP).

Decluttering my collection

After watching a few of Shaaanxo’s decluttering videos, I was inspired to take a look at my own collection, and see what needed to go. While my collection is barely a fraction of what Shannon has in hers, it’s still too much for one person, and it can feel a little overwhelming at times. Here’s what I’m finding new homes for (side note, I threw out a heap more products not pictured in this post).
