When Too faced released their new holiday collection I instantly knew I had to buy something. Everything looked just so pretty and very Christmassy. I think they did an amazing job when it comes to the packaging. But I didn’t expect any less compared to previous years. The set that I got the most exited for was the Christmas cookie house party. It is a Sephora exclusive but you can get it on the Too faced website as well but they don’t ship to many countries. It retails for 58 dollars, 55 pounds and 59,90 euros. I personally think that is a great price because you get a lot for your money. You have to keep in mind that it is a value set though. Sometimes the quality can be less than the regular palettes. The set includes: two eye palettes: a bigger one and a smaller one, a face palette, a travel size mascara, a travel size melted matte lipstick and a travel size eye shadow primer.
If you can’t tell by now I am absolutely in love with the packaging. I am a sucker for Too faced packagings. They always make me want to buy something just because of the packaging. I guess I am not the only one, he he. The packaging definitely gives my Christmas vibes. Which I love because Christmas is my favorite holiday. It comes in the prettiest pink box. Which I am definitely keeping. I really love how much work they put into the details. It really gives that extra sparkle to the products. I love love love all the glitters and metallic as well as the pretty colors. There are no mirrors include which is a little bit annoying but then again it is a value set. So I understand that. They are magnetic I think that is such a cool detail it makes it easier to storage and easy for traveling!
As the set includes two palettes I am going to talk you trough both of the palettes. I am going to start with the bigger one. It includes 20 shadows. The shades have a warmer tone to it which you could expect with a gingerbread palette. It is a great shade range they didn’t overlap some of the shades. I think this has to be my favorite packaging. It is so cute and girly. Also the products looked way better in real life than online. However the first time I used it I liked it but I wasn’t blowing away by it. I noticed that some of the shadows worked better then others. I do really love the shimmers in here. They are absolutely beautiful on the eyes. The mattes are a little bit harder to work with especially the deeper ones. However you can make them work and make them look pretty. It just takes a little bit longer than the mattes in their usual pallets. Nothing crazy but just something you have to keep in mind. Also don’t you just love the names? They have such cute names like: snow flake, easy Bake Lovin, secret Santa and I love yule. Overall I am very happy with this palette.
The little palette is oh so cute. It includes 6 shadows: 4 glitters and 2 mattes. I really love the color range in here. They are perfectly for the holiday season. I noticed that you have to use glitter glue with them. So keep that in mind when you are using them. I was very impressed by the pigmentation of these. They look gorgeous on the eyes as well. Again I am loving the names here.
It also comes with a cheek palette. Which include a bronzer, a blush and a highlighter. The bronzer called extra toasty is a very warm toned color. I bet it looks gorgeous on medium to deeper skin tones but for me it is a little bit to orange. I personally prefer a cooler toned bronzer especially in winter time. The blush is the prettiest pale pink called daydreamer. I really love how that shade looks on my skin tone. The highlighter is called get frosted. It is a very pretty champagne pink shade. It is my kind of color so I am very happy with that. All of these powders are very pigmented so be careful when you apply it. ( Especially with the bronzer ).
MAKE A WISH:
Overall I think this is a lovely set. It would make a perfect Christmas present as well. I haven’t really talked about the mini products as they are in their regular collection. But I will give you a quick opinion on these. I love the better than sex mascara. It is one of my favorite mascaras ever. It makes your lashes so long. I also love the eyeshadow primer it was the first time I tried it. It definitely helps for your eyeshadow to stay on your lid. I am not a fan of the melted matte lipstick. It isn’t really my shade and it is very hard to remove from your lips. I love the packaging tough.
I would love to hear your thoughts on this set and if there is anything you are going to pick up from the Too faced holiday collection of 2019 and also what is on your Christmas wishlist. Thank you for reading and I shall see you next time with a brand new (fashion) blogpost.
