Sex and the City is one of my favorite shows and when I saw the Too Faced Soul Mates in Carrie & Big I knew I had to have it! I have followed Carrie’s saga with Big time and time again (thanks to reruns on E! :)) and it’s great to have their love immortalized in this new adorable blush bronzer duo. Carrie & Big is a light to medium bronzer with a coral blush. I am a huge fan of Too Faced bronzers and I really couldn’t wait to get my hands on this. Unfortunately, I initially had some problems applying both the bronzer and in the particular the blush. I was having a really hard time getting pigment as it seems there was a manufacturing error it seems and I had to scrape off a thin layer from the top of the blush. There was a film on top of the blush, the kind you would see when there is oil on makeup powder and it needs to be scraped off, and once removed it works fine. I’m disappointed that this product arrived like this and would strongly recommend that if you purchase this color that you test it to make sure you don’t encounter the same problem. The colors are pretty and have kind of a light pigmentation but it can be layered to make it darker. The bronzer would work well for fair skin but it might not show up on darker skin tones. The blush is a little hard to apply with a fluffy face brush since it’s such a small area so I recommend using a smaller brush. Overall I like this blush bronzer duo but I was disappointed about the film on top of the product. I would recommend this to fair skinned girls but be sure to swatch it first in case it has the same manufacturing error mine had!
