Where you can get the Kat Von D x Too Faced magnetic makeup palette in Australia
Makeup junkies, get ready to meet your new obsession.
We first got wind of a potential Too Faced and Kat Von D collaboration when Kat herself posted a teasing pic to Instagram about nine months. The flatlay featuring a Too Faced compact and one of her lipsticks was captioned "@katvondbeauty +@toofaced = ❤". This led us to the exciting conclusion that Jerrod Blandino of Too Faced and Kat Von D of Kat Von D Beauty were indeed planning to team up and create a limited edition makeup collaboration.
Today, at last, we got our very first look at the brainchild of these two makeup super-brands – a collaboration called BetterTogether collection. Both Kat Von D Beauty and Too Faced Cosmetics posted an image to their Instagram accounts featuring a love heart-shaped makeup palette, half-black and half-pink to represent each brand's aesthetic.
According to Von D: "This double-sided palette is connected magnetically and can be broken apart in halves! Each half includes all NEW shades!"
Say hello to the @toofaced + @katvondbeauty palette from our #BetterTogether ™ collection!! DETAILS: this double-sided palette is connected magnetically and can be broken apart in halves! Each half includes all NEW shades! The #BetterTogether ™ palette will come with full-sized BetterThanSex Mascara + TattooLiner! Internationally launches exclusively at Sephora this holiday! [12/26 in the US + Canada and Valentine's Day internationally!] Lastly, this collection is both #vegan and #crueltyfree. And yes. This motherf*cker will be Limited Edition! #TOOFACEDxKATVOND #TOOFACEDxKATVOND #TOOFACEDxKATVOND #TOOFACEDxKATVOND
Von D posted an excited video of her and Blandino demonstrating the palette's magnetic functionality and we have to admit, it does look amazingly cool.
In addition, each purchase of the palette will come with the signature products from each brands' existing lines: a full sized BetterThanSex mascara from Too Faced and a TattooLiner from Kat Von D Beauty. Not a bad haul.
According to the Instagram announcement Von D posted on her personal account, the collaboration will be sold at Sephora internationally. The US and Canada are expecting to see a Boxing Day release date whereas the rest of the world (including Australia) are expecting to see the collaboration arrive on Valentines Day.
Official Australian release information, including pricing, is yet to be confirmed but the date is sure to align with the international release date Von D listed. Both brands are available for sale in Australia: Kat Von D Beauty is currently sold at Sephora and Too Faced is sold at Mecca Maxima stores.
Since the initial announcement, we've gotten a sneak peak inside both halves of the palettes courtesy of the Instagram accounts of Jerrod Blandino and KatVonDBeauty. Each half contains six brand new eyeshadow creations from the makeup mavens plus a message about the collaboration.
We've also seen that the collaboration will include a double-sided makeup bag that holds smaller versions of the existing signature products for both brands, but in new colours!
