Too Faced released this incredibly popular holiday palette about a month ago, complete with 20 shadows, 2 blushes, 1 highlighter, 1 bronzer, 3 mini brushes, a mini “Better than Sex” mascara and glitter makeup pouch. I actually bought it at the beginning of November as an impulse treat to myself. I’m happy I bought it, I use it all the time and it was a fantastic value! Not shocking that it is currently sold out from Sephora.
The palette sells for $68 (CAN) and is all together worth $545 if you were to buy everything individually. Not that I would, but considering I wanted a new bronzer and highlighter which alone would have costed about the same as this whole palette, I’m happy. As you follow my blogs, (which I hope you will!) you’ll start to notice I’m a big fan of palettes and makeup sets because they’re a way better value. This time of year is the best to stock up because companies release so many gift sets!
Why I love this:
-The colour varieties! The looks are endless but they aren’t too out-there, meaning you’ll likely use more than 4 colours. I use it equally for daytime and nighttime looks. There is also a good mix of matte and metallic shadow.
-You basically get a contour kit with the blush/bronzer/highlighter it includes. Bonus!
-The Better Than Sex mascara it comes with is actually so great.
-Brushes. They’re just minis and they’re basic quality. I probably won’t use them much except for the short defining brush
-Loose glitter in a couple of the shadows is annoying and gets all over my face even using a primer. I don’t know why companies still put this in shadow, it’s a shame.
-These products do contain talc which is a cheap filler and may cause irritation
The “Papa Don’t Peach” blush, the “Inner Light” highlighter, and the “Chocolate Soleil” bronzer are my favourites. They show up so nicely on my skin and you don’t need to use much. I like having fun new shadows to play with and some of the colours really are gorgeous, but they don’t top the quality of my Urban Decay shadows. What can I say they’re hard to beat. Overall happy with this set and the amazing value.
