What it is:
A makeup set with 18 eye shadows, two blushes, a bronzer, a mascara and a how-to guide for looks that are perfect for the season.
The luxurious Grande Hotel Café opens to reveal three Christmas coffee scented palettes (Peppermint Mocha, Gingerbread Coffee, and Eggnog Latte!) for a total of 18 matte and shimmer shadows, two perfectly coordinated blushes, a bronzer, and a deluxe size of our bestselling Better Than Sex Mascara. It’s the perfect gift for any makeup lover!
Let me just say that Too Faced kills it with their Holiday Collections. Their selection packaging can’t be beat. I always get so excited for their holiday collection each year, especially the palettes.
I was so exited for this collection mainly for the three separate palettes and the different scents in each! It comes with three Christmas coffee scented palettes (Peppermint Mocha, Gingerbread Coffee, and Eggnog Latte!) for a total of 18 matte and shimmer shadows, two blushes, a bronzer, and a deluxe size of Better Than Sex Mascara. The price point for all of these items is really good – $49 is totally with it.
If you love any of these scents then you will love the smell of these. They have a faint smell of each and they are delicious. I really love the colors they paired in each palette. They really go well with each other. Plus if you wanted to give this as a gift to multiple people you can separate each palette and give them to your friends or family members for Christmas.
Now, as far as the review for the eyeshadows. So far I really love these eyeshadows. There are some definite hits and misses in each palette but overall I love all of them! All of the matte shades rock! They are creamy, pigmented, easy to blend and look beautiful one they eyes. The shades I didn’t really love are the glitter shimmer shades. I typically never like those shades in most Too Faces palettes. These glitter shades are worse than their permanent palettes. They don’t really pack a punch, they are gritty, and they don’t have much pigment, plus you get a lot of fall out with them. They have lots of flecks of glitter and it almost feels gritty. Luckily the palettes don’t have a lot of these shades. I can deal with those shades because it’s about one shade per palette and I love the rest of the matte a foiled shades in the palettes so much.
