Too Faced Life's A Festival Collection | Life's A Festival Eyeshadow Palette ($52 CAD):
Housed in a rainbow-shaped holographic palette with a squishy cushioned lid, this is a gorgeous thirteen-shade palette featuring a soft array of fresh spring colors and mesmerizing duo-chrome shimmers. The formulation of every single shade is pigmented, rich, and highly blendable. There is not one dud, even the two matte shades are creamy and non-patchy. See below for a description of each shade.

This is the look I created using several of the eyeshadow shades. The purple liquid liner is from Shu Uemura (see here). I'm usually not a fan of bright and pastel colors but this palette is so beautiful! The formulation is top-notch and many of the colors are unique and one-of-a-kind.
Too Faced | Life's A Festival Rainbow Strobe Highlighter: Review and Swatches
Too Faced | Rainbow Effect Highlighter & Magic Rainbow Strobing Brush
Too Faced Life's A Festival Collection | Rainbow Strobe Highlighter ($38 CAD) & Magic Rainbow Strobing Brush ($40 CAD):
Infused with rose quartz power, the Rainbow Strobe Highlighter is a five-shade cheek highlighter paired with an equally charming five-colored highlighter brush (sold separately). The powder consists of a sparkly pink, orange-gold, soft yellow, baby blue, and soft lavender. Texture-wise, the highlighter is silky and lightweight but the pigmentation is quite sheer. It's actually pretty hard to build a rainbow effect unless you repeatedly swipe it on with your fingers. Therefore, the powder provides a mostly sheer but heavy glitter effect. The packaging design is undoubtly cute but this is a product I recommend checking out in stores before buying.

The specially designed Magic Rainbow Strobing Brush consists of a flattened, fan-shaped bristle and an iridescent duochrome lavender-blue handle. The synthetic bristles are dyed five different colors to match that of the highlighter. The bristles are dense but soft. The width also makes it super easy to pick up all five shades of the highlighter. With that said, because the highlighter is so sheer, the brush doesn't help much in achieving a rainbow highlight effect.

Too Faced | Life's A Festival Unicorn Tears Bronzer: Review and Swatches
Too Faced | Unicorn Tears Bronzer
Too Faced Life's A Festival Collection | Unicorn Tears Bronzer ($38 CAD):
Consisting of a shimmery bronzing shade and an iridescent highlighting shade, this is a unique bronzer palette pressed with an adorable unicorn design. The bronzer part is a medium shimmer tan. It's buttery smooth and very pigmented. The highlighter part, on the other hand, is a lavender with subtle blue and pink sparkles. Although much sheerer in comparison to the bronzer, the formulation is still silky and lightweight. When blended, the two forms a light tan with sparse iridescent sparkles. The combination is a little unconventional in my opinion so I think the two work best when applied separately.

Too Faced Life's A Festival Collection | Unicorn Horn Highlighting Stick in "Unicorn Dreams" ($39 CAD):
Shaped like a unicorn horn and housed in a twist-up packaging, the Unicorn Horn Highlighting Stick is a cream highlighter available in two shades. Here I have "Unicorn Dreams", a warm peachy pink with pretty golden shimmers. The vanilla-scented formulation is creamy, pigmented, and easily blendable. Once smoothed on the skin, the highlighter sets partly but is still prone to smudging. With that said, the formulation isn't greasy and if lightly set with a translucent powder, it will last quite well.

Too Faced | Life's A Festival Le Creme Mystical Lipstick & Magic Crystal Lip Topper : Review and Swatches
Too Faced | Le Creme Mystical Lipstick & Magic Crystal Lip Topper
Too Faced Life's A Festival Collection | Le Creme Mystical Lipstick ($26 CAD):
Available in four iridescent shades, including "Unicorn Tears", the one that started it all, the Le Creme Mystical Lipsticks feature a unique shade-shifting formulation that's buttery and hydrating. "Unicorn Tears" is a pretty light blue packed with frosty iridescent shimmers. The color turns slightly pink when applied on the lips but because the formulation is so packed with shimmers, it still has a noticeable blue sheen. Therefore, the color is best paired with a deeper pink or applied very lightly over bare lips.
"Fairy Tears" looks like a shimmery yellow in the tube but when applied onto the lips, it turns pink and shines with frosty iridescent shimmers. Both shades are very comfortable and smoothing. The shimmers have no grittiness and the lipstick is very hydrating.

Too Faced Life's A Festival Collection | Magic Crystal Lip Topper ($24 CAD):
Also available in four shades, the Magic Crystal Lip Toppers are a range of shimmery, creamy lip glosses designed for wearing alone or paired with a lipstick color. "Angel Tears" is a milky shimmer with a warm pink sheen while "Mermaid Tears" is a sheer light teal with iridescent blue-purple sparkles. "Angel Tears" works really well over a pink base color (see below) but "Mermaid Tears" is a little difficult to pull off. The gloss formulation is lightweight, non-sticky, and non-gritty. They definitely make the lips look plumper while providing a shiny, moisturizing finish.

Too Faced | Life's A Festival Refresh Spray : Review and Swatches
Too Faced | Festival Refresh Spray
Too Faced Life's A Festival Collection | Festival Refresh Spray ($32 CAD):
A water-based setting and refreshing spray, the Festival Refresh Spray is formulated with caffeine, lentil seed extract, sodium hyaluronate, and witch hazel. In addition to the skin-loving ingredients, the spray has a subtle sprinkling of opalescent mica and rose quartz. When shaken up, the pretty lavender-blue liquid swirls around inside the bottle, creating a mesmerizing ripple of shimmers. Lightly scented with a very subtle tropical floral scent, the spray feels instantly refreshing and leaves behind just a slight hint of lavender sheen. When applied over foundation and powder, the spray kind of helps everything bind and melt together, creating a smooth, seamless finish with a natural, dewy finish.

Below is a look I created using the Life's A Festival Eyeshadow Palette. For the lips, I blended the La Creme Lipstick in "Fairy Tears" and the Magic Crystal gloss in "Angel Tears" over a medium pink lipstick. Overall, this is a stunning collection. Although the Rainbow Effect Highlighter is a bit of a letdown, everything else delivered just what they promised. My personal recommendations are the Life's A Festival Eyeshadow Palette, the "Fairy Tears" La Creme Lipstick, and the Festival Refresh Spray.
