Too Faced x Kat Von D Better Together Review

Too Faced x Kat Von D Better Together Collection

The beauty world went crazy went Kat (Kat Von D) and Jerrod (Too Faced) announced they were joining forces and coming out with a collection as both of their brands are very popular and well loved. So I was very excited to be able to grab the palette on the day it was released last month.

After a whole month of playing around with these palettes, I’m ready to finally share my thoughts on them.

Check out my Too Faced x Kat Von D Better together palette review below.


The packaging of these palettes (or this palette?) is inspired by a BFF heart necklace where each person keep one side of the heart necklace. This is to reflect Kat and Jerrod’s friendship, which I think is super adorable!

So there are actually two palettes: a Too Faced one on the left, and a Kat Von D on the right. Kat and Jerrod each created six colors for their respective palettes.

They both open up to a full heart shape with a message written on the flap from them.

It has a magnetic center panel so when both palettes are closed and are in close proximity, they snap back together.


Too Faced Palette

What I immediately noticed about Jerrod’s palette is that the colors are much more feminine and warm.



Jerrod’s side also comes with a full sized Better Than Sex mascara – my holy grail mascara!

Colors in this palette are are:

BFF: Matte creamy white with soft specks of gold glitter. This shade seems pasty at first, but actually makes a great base and brow highlight. It somehow has a soft sheen to it.

Lovely: Matte pastel baby pink. I rarely wear this color and honestly wish he had chosen another color instead of this. It’s way too powdery and doesn’t shown up well on the skin.

Friendspiration: Metallic bronze gold. My absolute favorite color and formula. It’s so creamy, intensely pigmented, and blends like a dream.

Heart of Gold: Metallic navy green. Another favorite of mine. The formula is as creamy and smooth as Friendspiration.

Power Couple: Warm brown with gold glitter. The brown pigments aren’t intense and they swatch a bit patchily, but I had no problems with it when I blended it out in my outercorners. The gold glitters weren’t too obvious too.

Better Together: Satin dark plum. This color is gorgeous! I love wearing this on its own or as a crease contour.

All these shadows lasted for a minimum of 8 hours with primer, except for BFF and Lovely which faded at about the 4-5th hour mark. Here are the swatches.

How gorgeous are they!


Kat Von D Palette

Kat’s side isn’t necessarily cooler toned but it certainly has a darker feel to it. I am obsessed with the colors Darling and Swoon.


Kat’s side comes with a full size Tattoo Liner in Trooper, also my holy grail!

Shades in this palette are:

Yours: Matte dark grey. Kat’s mattes are somehow creamier and easier to blend. This shade is an absolute bliss to blend out – I am obsessed with the formula and the color!

Darling: Metallic pewter silver. Stunning color, super smooth and creamy formula, incredible color payoff and is completely opaque at first swatch. Seriously, this is perfection.

Por Vida: Matte white. I rarely use this shade as it’s too pale for my liking, but the formula is just as creamy and smooth as the other mattes in Kat’s palette.

Devotion: Matte jet black. Intense color, amazing formula despite some fallouts, but blends so easily on the outer corners. Love this.

Swoon: Satin/metallic scarlet red. Surprisingly the color I’ve been using the most! This shade has the best formula and texture, it’s so soft and intensely pigmented. I can’t rave about this shade enough.

Lovestruck: Shimmery, iridescent light peach. Very subtle and soft, but makes a beautiful inner corner highlight.

These colors also lasted for a minimum of 8 hours with primer.


Final Verdict

What I love about these palettes is that they complement each other really well. They can be worn on their own, but can also be worn together. But they are better togetherI love wearing Swoon all over the lids with Friendspiration on the center, with a mix of Power Couple and Devotion in the outer corners!

I can’t recommend this palette enough. Double thumbs up!
