Too Faced Eye Product Hall of Fame – Introducing the 3 Way Lash Lining Tool

Plus a look at fellow HOF members Shadow Insurance Primer and Perfect Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner

photos: we heart this

Long, long ago, before I ever used Too Faced Cosmeticsicon, their packaging gave me a fairy tale feeling. Whimsical and clever, with swirly fonts and happy colors, the boxes hinted that “happily ever after” was inside. Once I was lucky enough to own a few Too Faced products, I knew my instincts had been right.

I just have to say it: Too Faced, I love you. Or, in this case, Eye love you! In this look at Hall of Fame worthy Too Faced eye products, I revisited two favorites and also was introduced to a brand new treat that is sure to become a classic.

Way more primer than you need!

First, the favorites. The basis of any great eye look is a solid foundation, and nothing does the job like Shadow Insuranceicon Anti-Crease Eye Shadow Primer.

Just a teeny dot of this primer really does insure against creasing, smudging and fading. Too Faced says to us “the size of a rain drop,” but I say only half a rain drop is needed to even out the skin tone and smooth fine lines, creating a perfect surface.

Shadow Insurance ($18) has a colorless, paraben free formula designed to amplify any eyeshadow color for maximum payoff. The tube might look small, but since it really does take a minuscule amount per use, it will last a long time. This is my favorite primer ever, and I hope Too Faced keeps making it until the end of time.

Shadow Insurance Pros:
Created with unique binders to extend the wear of your shadow
Anti-creasing formula minimizes imperfections
Can be used with powder or cream shadows
Only a tiny dot does the job

Another HOF inductee from Too Faced, is their Perfect Eyes Waterproof Eyelinericon ($18), the gold standard in pencil liners. I revisited this fabulous liner in Perfect Black – and it’s just that.

This creamy, highly pigmented pencil glides on like a liquid, and – after a small window in which you can correct mistakes – dries for 8 hours of smudge proof, waterproof liner. While the pencil provides a sharp line, at the the other end of the pencil, is a flexi-firm, beveled smudger which can be used if you prefer a smoky, blended line.

We got a glance at four of the available nine hues, I can’t wait to try more!

Perfect Peacock - deep, shimmery teal with lighter teal shimmer
Perfect Purple – grape-plum with gold shimmer
Perfect Black – strong, matte black
Perfect Moss – khaki green with golden undertones

Perfect Peacock, Perfect Purple, Perfect Black, Perfect Moss

Perfect Eyeliner Pros:
Waterproof
Smooth application; no pulling, skipping or slipping
Vegan-friendly; free of parabens, mineral oil and paraffins

So how could Too Faced improve upon their already 5-star eye selection? Say ‘Hello’ to the 3 – Way Lash Lining Toolicon ($22), their brand new 3-in-1 pencil that does triple duty for perfectly lined eyes.

Triple duty? It’s true – this inventive liner can be used three distinct ways:

1. The 3 tips can be used together to create a triple coated line of the carbon black formula.

2. The individual fine points can be used to line the inside rim of the eye.

3. The entire triple-tip can be dotted within the lash line to fill in spaces between lashes, creating the illusion of thicker, more luscious lashes.

3-Way Lash Lining Tool Pros:
One tool can be used three different ways
Color is deep, dark black
Even novices can create the perfect cat eye thanks to the 3 tips

Cons:
It’s the Hall of Fame – absolutely none!

You might think you’re too old to believe in fairy tales, but you just have to look for that magic in more grown up places – like inside the pretty boxes of Too Faced cosmetics.

    I love Too Faced Shadow Insurance and it’s probably my favorite eye primer. Its an oldie but goodie. I’ve tried plenty of other primers, any many of them were quite good, or have more color options, but if I could only pick one eye primer for the rest of my life, I’d pick TFSI. Hands down. It’s a five star product all the way, from quality to price to packaging.

    I received the 3-way Lash Lining Tool to try out. “Tool” is kind I misleading, “stylus” or “pen” or “marker” is a little more straight forward. It’s a good eyeliner pen–the color is rich and very pigmented. It doesn’t smudge or fade. I like that there’s the option of different way to apply the liner using the oddly shaped tip, but I thought it was a little awkward to use. I’m not impressed enough to repurchase but it’s still a good product. If other eyeliner pen tips just haven’t worked for you, I’d give this a try.

      I know it’s been a couple of months, but I’ve been using the 3 way lash lining tool a lot lately (winged liner with a bit of gold shadow is so perfect for the holidays!) It does takes some getting used to, but now I really like how the tip can function like a calligraphy pen, letting me easily transition from making a thin line to a thick line. And it does stay put, even on my waterline.

    I got to try Perfect Moss, which is a great name for it. It’s a nice deep green with highlights of gold. It applies like a dream and I like the build in smudger for blurring the line for a little less drama. I would also like to try the Purple!

    The liquid liner just looks so neat!

    Sorry for chiming in so late.. I had an emergency dental appointment today.. Geeze!
    I received TWO FACED 3-Way Lash Lining Tool and was quite impressed with its ability to create such a perfect cat eye and how it really made my eyelashes with just a touch look so much thicker. I also like how the liner worked.. It’s crazy cool to use the three felt tips on your lashes. I think this is a great product for anyone interested in making some fancy looking eyes fast and easy to boot. I have to use it more to practice other ways it can be used for sure..I had immediate satifaction with the way it handled tight spots. It really is a pitch black liner that makes its mark known in an instant! Great find WHT.. I’ll be keeping this one around here on out! Five Stars!

    Ok, I’m a bit embarrassed to say that this is the first time I have ever tried Shadow Insurance. I know! I risked having my beauty blogger card taken away. But all is right in the world now. And, I have a new favorite shadow primer! It’s so light. So light that you’ll wonder if it’s even doing anything. But it is, one little dab gives you a smooth, slightly tinted base that shadows cling to like magic. Brilliant.

    I also got to try the Perfect Peacock waterproof eye liner. In all honesty, I couldn’t resist this from the first swipe shown in the swatch above. As a teal addict, the super deep, shimmery color left me in such a tizzy that I wouldn’t have fought anyone who tried to tell me I couldn’t have it! The formula is smooth, easy to blend (love the beveled blender on the tip too!), and sticks around forever. This is the kind of liner I could easily pick up in every shade it comes in.

    5 stars on these Hall of Fame classic items!

    In case you can’t tell, I love all of these products! The 3 Way is so clever, and the Perfect Eyes black liner can’t be beat. I’m not going to rest until I get another color or two. Perfect Peacock and Perfect Moss are so beautiful. I don’t think I can choose between them, so I’m going to buy both! And the primer is seriously my favorite of all time. 5 stars all around for Too Faced!

    I love Shadow Insurance. I have a few that came from palettes, etc. It’s not my go-to eye primer but it does the job for sure! My only gripe about it is that sometimes the water (?) separates from the product so when I squeeze out product, I get a squirt of watery primer :/ Other than that, I love its performance and easy to use tube.

    I’ve never dotted my eyeliner before but I’ve been reading up about it lately online. Seems like a cool method to try!

    How funny @stef – this was you co-editors first time using the Shadow Insurance as well! I’ve heard the love for it in the past, but never tried it out. I was happy to test it for this review and I am a new convert! First of all I love the simple tube packaging – it makes it easy to get all of the product out of the tube and easy to control the amount you get for each use. (I’m not a fan of the pumps and nozzles used in a lot of makeup packaging these days).

    As for the primer – it’s fab. A teeny dab covers both eyes and gives a nice, smooth, even base – perfect for eyeshadow application. If I’m feeling low key, I wear the primer alone – it evens out the area hiding any redness and just makes me look a little more awake and polished. A swipe of mascara and I’m good to go.
    Shadow Insurance = 5 stars for me!

    BAAAHHH!!!! @stef You’re great review of the 3-way lash lining tool is not helping my “don’t buy new cosmetics, use the ones you have” commitment! I’m already thinking about splurging on Moth Brown…but I have to restrain myself every time I’m in Sephora from picking it up. I told myself I had to use up at least 2 of the other black eyeliners I own :/ Great review though & I might pick it up during the VIB event next week. Oh, and Perfect Peacock is tooo beautiful! That would really make brown eyes pop!

    I daresay Too Faced’s Shadow Insurance has replaced my usual primer. This actually manages to keep my eye makeup looking fresh after hours of wear. My usual gives me a few uninterrupted hours of wear and then I get a slow fade, but this stuff managed to keep both my shadow and liner looking so fresh, you’d think I’d just applied it 8 full hours later. In summer humidity, no less. I cannot express to you how awesome this little tube is. 5 humongous stars from me :)

    I tested the 3-Way Lash Lining Tool and it took me a little bit to get used to the 3 pronged tip. Normally with liquid liner I like a very fine brush tip so I can get a very precise line, but I was quite surprised by the 3 tips. I especially liked the dotting feature to fill in the lash line. That’s a nice easy trick and totally worked for my wimpy lashes! It’s a nice strong black too, so perfect for cat eyes!

    I also got to try the Shadow Insurance primer and I think I may have found my new favorite primer! I’ve tried a few others, but this one really did a great job of “smoothing” out that area and helping my makeup look great all day. As others have mentioned, you really only need a teeny tiny bit to do the job, but that tiny drop packs quite the punch!

    5 stars from me for both products!
