Vegas Nay for Too Faced


What’s going on, makeup junkies?! I received the new Too Faced palette about two days ago and had just got to playing with it this morning. I still need some time to fully review every shade, but what I can tell you is that I am truly IN LOVE with the shade “The Strip.” It’s a gorgeous, finely-milled shimmer pink.
